Hello and Quota

Hey guys. I really have lost count on how many days have I not updated my blog. I have been trying to update it but everytime I opened it, my laptop becomes slow. Now, since I have paid for my broadband. It's good as usual. Anyway, I'm afraid I still won't have a lot of time to update this blog after this. That's because on 22nd May, I'll be registering myself at UiTM Bukit Mertajam for foundation in science. As you know, the first week will be the busiest week. Ya la. Minggu Orientasi kan. Mestilah sibuk. I really hope that my choice going there, not to Matriculation is the right choice. Please wish me luck. Hehe. By the way, I'll try my best to update this blog when I have the chance. No worries. Ok, that's enough of talking. Let's get to business. Hehe.

Malam ni, nak cerita pasal apa ya? Hmm. I know. What do you think of the quota in furthering your studies after SPM given by the government of Malaysia? Ala, yang kuota antara bumiputera (B) dengan bukan bumiputera (NB) tu. Is it fair? Is it good? Should it be abolished? Should it be kept? Those are some questions that might be playing in our head or others. As for me, I think it should be kept but the quota should be more balanced between the B and NB and some modifications should be made to the quota. I know some of the intelligent adolescence (yang bijak pandai lah selalunya fikir macam ni) think that it should be abolished. So that, the B students will not take things for granted, become more competitive, and also healthier competitions between B and NB. True. Even I can't argue with that because... Yeah, it's totally true. But sometimes, we need to think out of the box. Don't just think about us. Kadang-kadang, untuk mendapat satu idea dan pandangan yang bernas, kita perlu berfikir dari sudut pihak lain juga. Bak kata orang putih, what if we're in the other's shoes? For B who is bright and brilliant and also capable to pay for tuition fees, maybe abolishing the quota is all right and won't be a big problem. But think about the B who is from a poor family, lives in a remote places, abolishing it might be harsh. Ya la. They can't afford to go to tuition like us, they can't afford to buy a lot of exercises books like us. Jadi, agak susah bagi mereka untuk mendapat keputusan yang cemerlang seperti pelajar-pelajar di bandar dan yang berkemampuan. Even some of the capable students are worst than them. It's true that it's not impossible for them to get excellent results but the probability is small. So, without the quota, surely most of the NB will get the scholarships and chances to further their studies. Kasihanlah dengan B yang tak berkemampuan tu. So that is why I think the quota should be kept.

Now, let's talk about balancing the quota between B and NB. Entahlah korang sedar atau tidak, NB memang sangat susah untuk mendapatkan apa-apa biasiswa sama ada daripada JPA atau MARA dan lain-lain biasiswa di Malaysia. Untuk mendapatkan kursus-kursus yang baik di mana-mana IPTA juga sangat sukar bagi mereka. So, for me, the Government should think about balancing (entah betul ke tak istilah yang digunakan ni) the quota. Give more chances to NB who are really qualified. Just imagine, a friend of mine, a chinese who got straight A+'s (10 subject) is only offered a diploma in...Emm... I can't remember in what but it's a total insult. 10 A+ kot. Come on la. Tu memang melampaulah. So, what I meant by balancing the quota is that NB students who is really qualified like that friend of mine should be given more chances to get good courses in IPTA. Habis bahagian tu.

Now, about the modification. I think the scholarship should be given not depending 100% on the results but also based on the family background. Poor students, regardless they're B or NB, who manage to get good results, maybe 5A's and above...should be offered courses which are suitable with their results. Maybe students who get 4A's should also be given the chance too as long as they manage to get at least 'kepujian' in all the subjects. Who get's below than that, yeah. You know, maybe they can go to Form 6, or IKBN or anywhere they want. Kalau nak longgarkan syarat melebih-lebih kang jadi isu graduan tidak berkualiti la apalah pulak. Susah juga macam tu. This is my humble opinion only and it doesn't mean you have to agree with what I said. You have your own mind, you have your own thinking and you can be 100% sure that I won't say you're wrong. That's all for tonight. Oh yeah. One more thing.
p/s: INGAT TUHAN SELALU. Hehe. Till the next post.

Be Careful Mothers

Hey guys. Sorry because I didn't update last night. I went back to my village celebrating my auntie's birthday. Well, let's get back to the story. This story is about my little cousin (7 years old). Just now, while visiting my uncle's family at Selama, my auntie told me a funny story about her daughter. This story is more or less like this.

Mom : Eh eh eh. Mak tengok comel la kucing yang dik Wa pegang tu.

Dik Wa quickly turned her face angrily and moved to the wall corner.

Mom : La. Apasal pulak ni?

Dik Wa : Dik Wa nak merajuk.

Mom : Kak Ha buli ke? (Dik Wa geleng) Abang Dawi marah? (Geleng lagi) Dah tu pasal apa merajuk?

Dik Wa : Mana ada... Mak punya pasal la.

Mom : Eh? Mak pulak? Mak buat apa kat Dik Wa?

Dik Wa : Mak la. Puji kucing tu comel. Dik Wa mak tak pernah pun puji comel.

After hearing the story, we all burst out laughing. Serius lawak. Tambah lagi bila tengok muka budak tu bila mak dia cerita pasal tu. Haha. Then, before going back, we kinda pick on her. Kitorang usik-usik la dia.

Kitorang : Dik Wa, kucing tu comel kan...Sambil senyum sinis

Dik Wa yang tadinya tersenyum terus muncung mulut, muka pun terus masam.

Kitorang ulang dua tiga kali, macam nak nangis dia. Haha. Last sekali, pujuk la dia balik. Dik Wa lagi comel pada kucing tu la. Baru la dia senyum. Haish. That's the story of my 7 years old cousin. Lawak kan budak-budak ni. Macam pandai pun ada. Macam kerek pun ada. Macam-macam la ada. Haha. Anyway, the moral of the story is, to everyone, especially mothers, be careful with what you say to your child. Sebab diorang ni pun terasa jugak. Haha.Till the next post.
