Bad news

I have been going to Cempaka for two weeks already and yet I am still finding it hard to adapt well. There are many things which  I have to learn to cope with in this new environment. The fact that pretty much every student is perfectly capable of grasping the massive amount of information and torrential (horrendous!!) homework at school is somewhat refreshing for me. In my previous school, most of the students adopt a more laid back attitude towards studies only to find themselves struggling during examination period. I think I prefer the former! 

 All the pressure that is building up makes me all the more excited with the forthcoming CNY holidays. I need a break badly!

Looking forward to meeting up with relatives, catching up with old friends and most importantly.. u guessed it right-ANG POWS!

A fresh start.

Every year, January marks the beginning of a new academic year but this year it was a different experience altogether as I will be enrolled to a new school, Sri Cempaka! Before I was offered a place in the school, I had to sit for entry examinations-English, Malay and Maths; and will be interviewed by the principal. Despite having done some preparation, I must admit that I was terribly nervous during the actual day! After a few days, Mrs. Tan gave me a call and informed me that I was accepted to Sri Cempaka. Such a relief!

Over the past two weeks, I have met some friends who are friendly. They brought me around the school, introduced me to other friends and taught me how things work in school. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them. It was interesting studying in Sri Cempaka because it's a good learning environment. The student-teacher ratio here is much lower compared to my previous school. The facilities here are excellent and of course the students are also kind and nice.

Bottom line? I love it!
