Short Story - A Haunted House, by Virginia Woolf (part 2)

"Here we slept," she says. And he adds, "Kisses without number." "Waking in the morning--" "Silver between the trees--" "Upstairs--" 'In the garden--" "When summer came--" 'In winter snowtime--" "The doors go shutting far in the distance, gently knocking like the pulse of a heart.

Nearer they come, cease at the doorway. The wind falls, the rain slides silver down the glass. Our eyes darken, we hear no steps beside us; we see no lady spread her ghostly cloak. His hands shield the lantern. "Look," he breathes. "Sound asleep. Love upon their lips."

Stooping, holding their silver lamp above us, long they look and deeply. Long they pause. The wind drives straightly; the flame stoops slightly. Wild beams of moonlight cross both floor and wall, and, meeting, stain the faces bent; the faces pondering; the faces that search the sleepers and seek their hidden joy.

"Safe, safe, safe," the heart of the house beats proudly. "Long years--" he sighs. "Again you found me." "Here," she murmurs, "sleeping; in the garden reading; laughing, rolling apples in the loft. Here we left our treasure--" Stooping, their light lifts the lids upon my eyes. "Safe! safe! safe!" the pulse of the house beats wildly. Waking, I cry "Oh, is this your buried treasure? The light in the heart."


Short Story - A Haunted House, by Virginia Woolf (part 1)

A Haunted House, by Virginia Woolf

Whatever hour you woke there was a door shutting. From room to room they went, hand in hand, lifting here, opening there, making sure--a ghostly couple.

"Here we left it," she said. And he added, "Oh, but here tool" "It's upstairs," she murmured. "And in the garden," he whispered. "Quietly," they said, "or we shall wake them."

But it wasn't that you woke us. Oh, no. "They're looking for it; they're drawing the curtain," one might say, and so read on a page or two. "Now they've found it,' one would be certain, stopping the pencil on the margin. And then, tired of reading, one might rise and see for oneself, the house all empty, the doors standing open, only the wood pigeons bubbling with content and the hum of the threshing machine sounding from the farm. "What did I come in here for? What did I want to find?" My hands were empty. "Perhaps its upstairs then?" The apples were in the loft. And so down again, the garden still as ever, only the book had slipped into the grass.

But they had found it in the drawing room. Not that one could ever see them. The windowpanes reflected apples, reflected roses; all the leaves were green in the glass. If they moved in the drawing room, the apple only turned its yellow side. Yet, the moment after, if the door was opened, spread about the floor, hung upon the walls, pendant from the ceiling--what? My hands were empty. The shadow of a thrush crossed the carpet; from the deepest wells of silence the wood pigeon drew its bubble of sound. "Safe, safe, safe" the pulse of the house beat softly. "The treasure buried; the room . . ." the pulse stopped short. Oh, was that the buried treasure?

A moment later the light had faded. Out in the garden then? But the trees spun darkness for a wandering beam of sun. So fine, so rare, coolly sunk beneath the surface the beam I sought always burned behind the glass. Death was the glass; death was between us, coming to the woman first, hundreds of years ago, leaving the house, sealing all the windows; the rooms were darkened. He left it, left her, went North, went East, saw the stars turned in the Southern sky; sought the house, found it dropped beneath the Downs. "Safe, safe, safe," the pulse of the house beat gladly. 'The Treasure yours."

The wind roars up the avenue. Trees stoop and bend this way and that. Moonbeams splash and spill wildly in the rain. But the beam of the lamp falls straight from the window. The candle burns stiff and still. Wandering through the house, opening the windows, whispering not to wake us, the ghostly couple seek their joy.

* Once in awhile I'll publish some English articles, hope it'll help for MUET reading (:

Intermolecular Forces (Short Question)

Letter to my 16 years old self

I read this on Nuffnang co-founder's blog. I think it'll be a slight change to write something about me rather than the usual academic work I post. 

Dear 16 year old me,

Its been many years away from you now, I went through many storms and hurricanes, ups and downs, achievements and underachievement.  You would never know that one day you'll be overseas studying alone, don't you? Neither would you expect to study for STPM, because the ultimate dream was always to go into college. Mommy wants to send you oversesas but mommy thinks that going into Form Six will mould you into a more mature person.

What mommy said is true. You got your very 1st culture shock in Form Six and underperformed. With your abilities, you could have achieved much more. But you learned some very important things which will be a good lesson for you in life, that no everyone will treat you the way you treat them, and you have to learn how to protect yourself. Because when you come out to work 1 day, people relations is going to be much more tougher and complicated than this.

I know you'll be worked out throughout Form Six knowing you cant perform well because you hated it.You even wanted to drop for college. But don't do that, because you've learnt so much, both academic wise and people relation wise. It's better to fall apart then than later, it won't be easy to pick yourself up if you fall apart now. Besides, you did manage to get into a pretty good university, didn't you? After all the loathing of Form Six, you still opened up a blog, hoping to help current/future form 6 students. That's a good improvement, and a sign of maturity. Isnt it?

Relationship wise, you never had much luck with guys. Your 1st puppy love told you he fell for someone else. You had evidence of your 2nd bf cheating on you, but you put on a blind eye and trusted him. Stupid huh, Well you're in talking terms with him now but you keep a distance from him and don't believe in true love anymore. I believe it must have been a painful heartbreaking lesson, but don't give up on love. You'll find someone great 1 day. Well, its not that you've been truly faithful to him as well, you had a crush on a guy in college, and so did he. Sounds like a real complicated relationship, but you were younger and playful then.

I guess you've done pretty well for now. I believe you'll achieve much more in another 5 years time.

Yours truly,
the current you

Good Form 6 Tuition Teachers around KL/PJ area (Personal Opinion)

*Beware, long post ahead*

I've been to a couple of tuitions during form 6. It's not a must but it really helps (We've been spoon fed since yeah :p) I'm going to recommend a few tuition teachers who taught me, whether you think if the teacher is good/bad, try it out and see for yourself :)

MUET - Many have suggested Mr Murugan in Kasturi (I've never taken any MUET tuition before so I cant comment on this, but generally there has been a really positive feedback from my friends and juniors who were taught by him)

BIO & CHEM - I took Mr Lingam's class in Kasturi for both Bio and Chem. (His classes are really good and informative.He's really good in teaching...oh and don't get me started on his seminars before STPM (EVERYTHING he spotted was IN !!!!) I remember all of us came out of the exam hall beaming with smiles from ears to ears and thanking him for that. [We used to secretly name him the walking & talking dictionary,because he seems to know everything] But there's one setback in his KL Kasturi tuition. The class is TOOO BIGGGGGG !!!!! He conducts his own Bio & Chem tuition in Subang as well, there's only one or two classes and the seats are limited (25 per class) Personally, I prefer his Subang classes, its smaller and its easier to concentrate (Kasturi has this weird ritual of staffs coming in the middle of the class to take the attendance and it will take at least 15 mins every time) His Subang classes are a bit more expensive, also because there's many extra classes throughout (RM80 single subject and RM140 for both) but its really worth it. I know he's conducting lower sixes class from the 1st Sunday of June (2pm to 6pm for both subjects) Those who are interested in Subang classes leave a comment/drop me an email. I'll send you his number so that you can call him to further confirm it.

PENGAJIAN AM - I never took tuition for Pengajian Am also. My school teacher is really good, also I never thought its necessary. BUT I went to Yakin's seminar for crash course. Its about hundred plus I think (I cant remember the price because its just once all but its a few day's seminar, so quite worth it) Plus the notes he gave during the seminar is good for revision. I've also heard some pretty good feedbacks on Mr Thiaga Kolej Bandar (can give a try if you want to take PA tuition)

MATHS T/S - I took Maths T under Mr Ong in Edusmart tuition. Its around RM90 per month. He also teaches in Kolej Bandar. I'm not too sure about Kolej Bandar's price. Can anyone let me know so that I can post it up? Mr Lingam was our god of Bio/Chem, Mr Ong was our god of Maths. (We really worship our tuition teachers haha) He's really good in teaching Maths, very patient. His questions are really good and he's very detailed in teaching. I always went up to him with my Maths homework half way done because I was stuck and I didn't know how to continue (I've not gotten his permission to post some of his questions here, so I can't do so until he agrees) Also, if anyone wants Edusmart's phone number for further enquiries, please leave a comment/drop me an email. I'll let you know :)

ps: I'm not paid for recommending the teachers. Its just my 2 cents opinion :) 

**update: Mr Lingam's Subang class has moved to Kelana Jaya

The Journey Begins

Hey Lower Sixes...How was the orientation??? I hope you all have plenty of fun :) but its time for a little more serious work now. Start preparing for MUET, by just spending some time reading English newspaper. I'm going to post chemistry and physics syllabus in a moment, bear with me. Again, a warm welcome to the world of form six, study hard, study smart and of course, play hard !!!



Maths S syllabus

Tips to prepare Maths T/S

1. Practice, practice, practice. Go through all the questions in the reference books and tuition questions (if you go for tuitions) Do not memorize, understand the workings because maths is not a memorizing subject.

2. Get a good reference book other than the one your teacher uses. Most school usually use Pelangi, but I also use Federal Study Aids Mathematics T (Its just a recommendation, only you know which book suits you best. Therefore it is good to spend some time in the bookshop comparing the books) 

3. If you think you need tuition, go for it, don't hesitate (I know a lot of people strongly state that you should study on your own and don't expect to be spoon fed, but if its not too much of a financial burden, sometimes a bit of extra help is really good)  

4. Do your homework, don't pile your maths homework. You'll lose the mood to work on maths homework when the homework seems never ending.

5. Ask. If you don't understand, ask. Don't be shy. Go up to your teacher personally and ask for his/her help. Teachers are always more than willing to help you, provided you ask politely and with a beaming smile (: 

6. Never give up. If you find yourself not understanding anything, don't skip it. Mark the parts you don't understand and come back later.

Its Saturday !!!

Its the 7th of May, 2 more days for lower 6 to attend orientation on coming Monday !!! I'm sure the upper sixes will give you a warm welcome and show you your way round in form 6. Enjoy your last relaxing weekend as well as your orientation and the long awaited journey begins !!!!!

Happy Advanced Mother's Day to all moms in the world !!! (:


How to Deal with Exam Stress

Many students face exam stress whenever exam is around the corner, especially when STPM is a huge paper and every single paper counts because it symbolizes the amount of practice exams before you sit for the real deal.

I'm going to share a few ways to deal with exam stress:

1. Stay away from distractions, including all social networking sites, typically the night before your paper.

2. Learn how to say NO. Be selfish before your exam, you and your paper are the main priorities. When you realised you wont be able to finish your revision if you go out, reject the offer politely and make it up to your friends/family/relatives after you've finished your exam.

3. Drink plenty of fluids and eat good food (stay away from junk food when you're doing your last minute studying. If you must eat something, take some good junkies like cereal bars, good chocolate bars, fruits and even a cup of hot tea will do the trick sometimes)

4. Go for a quick walk around the house when you realised you cant concentrate anymore. Also watch some thing light, i.e. comedy show (don't overdo the relaxing part, you have a paper to study, remember? )

5. Sleep well, dont go all nighters. You'll crash during the paper.

6. Stay calm and dont panic !!! Even if you've not finished the few chapters, the chances of the whole paper consists only that 1 or 2 chapters is highly unlikely.

7. Finally on the exam day, take a deep breathe, take a good breakfast/lunch (dont take heavy meals because you might feel sleepy after a good meal) Bring in a cereal bar/a good chocolate bar if you feel you might get hungry in the middle of your exam.

How to Prepare for Muet (Last Minute)

If you're finding yourself in deep trouble because MUET is around the corner and you haven't done much, you've come to the right place.

Golden Rule No 1 for Last Minute Studying: DO NOT PANIC

1. START READING: spend 1 hour everyday in reading English newspaper, the news section preferably (I know many of you pay heaps of attention to Entertainment Section, so do I)

2. BUY/DOWNLOAD ILLEGALLY /BORROW a good English Workbook. It'll be your best friend until you've sat for MUET.

3. If you spend a lot of time watching shows like Gossip Girl, House, CSI, NCIS it WITHOUT the subtitles. You can easily take the subtitles out from tv, and even video. If all fails, take a piece of A4 paper n cover the subtitle area when you're watching your daily dosage of shows.

4.Speak more. Practice Practice Practice.

5. Tune into ONLY ENGLISH radio stations, of course until the day you finished your MUET paper.

PS: Last Minute studying is strongly discouraged. This is just a guideline to help students who're in trouble. (:

What to expect in Form Six

Congratulations to all who got into lower six. There are several things which are different compare to Form 1 to 5.

1. Hard work, loads of hardwork. Then again you can burn your books, mix the ashes into your favourite drink and drink it daily.  (I'm just kidding); the trick is to study hard and study smart; and play hard too.

2. NO textbooks in Form six, only reference books. Therefore you don't have to apply for Skim Pinjaman Buku Teks.

3. NEVER take things for granted in Form 6. You can get away with it in SPM but not STPM. If you're unsure of anything, ask your class teacher/tuition teacher (who ever you feel comfortable approaching personally)

4. If you think you need tuition/extra help, take it from day 1. Don't have the "let's wait and see if I can catch up" attitude, because the course gets harder by day. Not easier. However, don't expect spoon feeding. Many teachers usually run through the book as quickly as possible because there's too much to cover.

5. Raise your expecation level for difficult, things are not and will never be peanuts. 

6. Participate in curricular activities, its a fun way to relax as well as a good way to make more friends (if you're in a new school)

7. Study CONSTANTLY - do your homework & revision every week. 

Last but not least....GOOD LUCK & ALL THE BEST (:

How to prepare for MUET

Congratulations to all who got into lower 6. This will be your 1st step to degree.

Today I'm going to share some a few tips to prepare for Muet.

1. Start reading English materials, other than textbook (surf the web to read famous blogs, CNN news, Star Newspaper, NST, novels even chick flick  ) [This will help improve your vocabulary as well as grammar structures]

2. Listen to English news,  Tune in to English Radio Stations ( morning show is a good entertainment, if you're driving to school/being driven to school or BFM if you're fairly interested in Business World) [This will help in preparing for the listening part] 
ps: listening to news also helps with Pengajian Am: killing two birds with 1 stone

3. Speak. It's the best way to practice for the oral test, doesn't matter if you're good at it. Practice makes things perfect

If you follow this since day 1 in STPM, you'd be surprised how much you've improved when MUET comes

Good Luck n All the best

How to concentrate on Studying

I'm sure many students are struggling with concentration, so do I. (I have really short concentration span and lose interest in things almost immediately)

1. Make a schedule (old school, but write down what you want to accomplish that day on a piece of paper;yo u'll feel a sense of achievement when you strike out the things you've done)
2. Choose a nice spot to study (library, your room etc)
3. Get Physical (no, not what you're thinking) Use Highlighters, Pens/pencils to scribble what you've read
4. Grab some brain food, i.e power bar (I use Nescafe white coffee.. not a good advice but it works for me :S)
5. Tidy up ur table b4 studying, you can never focus in a table which looks like disaster zone.
6. Last but not least.... when you're studying, stay away from Facebook, twitter, plurk, Msn/Yahoo/Meebo/ebuddy !!! :) (trust me, it works all time, facebook is sinful..very very sinful)
