After two weeks of Easter Holidays... We Marjonian Cohort 4 are now busy with classes. Now, this term we kick-start with a full class. Although currently we have only two subjects, life is a little bit busy due to School Experience placement. For 5 weeks we will be having two days a week school experience. I bet this time it also going to be great just like last year. Last time, for the school placement I was grouped with Nabilah, KB and Mira and I was paired with Mira in one classroom. This year I was paired with Zati only. I like going to England primary schools and have a look on the school and the education system over here. But I still think Malaysian schools are not that far from schools over here. Reasons? This entry is not about that. Maybe another time.
I'm looking forwards to Steve's class. Learning about challenging circumstances in teaching English. Herm... Hope that through this subject I can be prepared for my future teaching profession. Furthermore, Steve himself is a great lecturer. He has a knack in making a lesson interesting and fun. Micheal Hall's subject Comparative Education is rather technical for me. It is hard for me to understand it and I myself have to understand not only Malaysian education but also England and a few other countries education system. The assignment itself is a little bit difficult I think. But hey learning about other countries education system will be fun (I hope!).
Ok that's all for now about my current life. Bye..bye...
p/s: Esok g sekolah!!! yeah!!!

Now Malaysian education field have a new leader. He (Tan Sri Muhyiddin) preceded this portfolio from Dato' Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein. Congratulations and a big welcome I bid to Tan Sri Muhyiddin for obtaining this portfolio. As we know, Education is always an interest of the nation (and me personally), a lot of people will be looking on what he has to offer. I personally hope that with a new leader, Malaysian education scene will have positive changes and give more (if not just little bit) favour to the teacher. Education is one of the main source in changing our beloved country, thus a good leader is needed in making sure that Malaysian education system will be uphold to the utmost standard.
To Dato' Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein, I would like to say thank you for all the works that he had done while holding the post for 5 years. Our education system underwent a lot of changes under his leadership make it good or bad (erm but mostly I can say good changes). I would also like to say good luck with your new portfolio.
And to the new cabinet under the leadership of our 6th Prime Minister, Dato' Seri Najib, what I have to say is that our Nation ... Malaysia is depending on all of your leadership, good luck and may God be by yourside all the time.

4 or 5 medium size bananas.
3 chicken eggs.
1 3/4 cups of self-raising flour.
1/4 cup of corn flour.
1 cup of sugar.
1 cup of cooking oil (preferably vegetable oil).
1 tea-spoon of soda bicarbonate.
A pinch of salt.
- Heat your oven first using a medium heat, 160 - 180 degrees.
- Whisk the egg and sugar until it fluffy.
- Then add the bananas that you have mashed and mix thoroughly.
- After that add both flour and soda bicarbonate and mix again.
- Next, add the salt and oil. Mix well.
- Then, bake it for about 50 minutes to 1 hour. Don't forget to put some oil in the baking tin so that your cake wouldn't stick to it.
- I only use 3/4 cup of sugar because I want to get the sweetness of the bananas for my cake.
- To get a soft and fluffy cake you must sieve a.k.a ayak both flour together with the bicarbonate soda.
