What Drives You?

When you're here (GMi) and you claimed you want to head to Germany because you want to study abroad/overseas, therefore you strive hard to achieve it.
Then once you're there in Germany, what next?
I mean, you've got what you wanted which is study abroad and that is what drives you to achieve your dream with hardwork. And I assume here, that once you're there, you will be empty of 'drive' or motivation because your dream is already achieved ie it is a short distanced dream.
If you say you want to be an engineer, thus going to Germany is the way, then your objective is stronger, more solid and you're clearer with your effort and mission.

And that concludes the post today; having a stronger objective for what you will do in the future.
As for me, I've got my own objective, my BIG mission in pursuing debate. Not just as my passion-filler, but for the better of the future generation.

All da best in planning and executing your future!
And yeah, if you need my help, readers, in doing so, I'm all open to help out. ;D

English In Camp 2010, KISAS

This is one of the BEST event I've EVER participated as a facilitator!!! There were TONNES of things I've learnt throughout the program. Here they are:

Ok, so basically every facilitators will be in charge for a group of students. Yeah, my group is the Bougainvillea 4. In this group of 12 people (alright, at this stage we had to combine groups as there were not enough facilitators) we introduced ourselves. The details were simple things; name with a catchy adjective in front of it and school's name. I made it that simple.
Then I also made them repeat the circulation for three times with the third time with them repeating their other friends' names. Guess what?
This actually made the names stick in their head stronger. And to top it up, I challenged them to repeat everyone's names without reference to their papers. Whoa! Was it challenging!

To have a team is not complete without the motto and logo aite?
Here, I got to see some potential people. Gosh, they were fantastic! And my team used 'Steh auf' as their motto (from the German phrase "Get back up"). You guys ROCK!!

Make it a treasure hunt. Double the game area, double the fun. It was done in the park outside KISAS. It sure was tiring, but since I only sat in the Owl's Nest in the playground scouting the area, so it reduced my energy loss, till one boy thought I was loving enough and started sticking with me like we were best friends of all times. Man, it took me half an hour to get him away from me, considering he is just 3years old.

Speaking of teasing your brains, this game is sure one tricky teaser. Its a variety of sessions eg Spelling Bee and Line Joiner. Haha At this point, I was in charge of the Spelling Bee session and to this time, none of the teams managed to spell this one word correctly; Cantankerous. Good try though, people!!
After everything is finished, I got this pang to ask this final group a question; whats their ambitions and the reasons behind it. I guess it got one of them in the sensitive part, and I want to say sorry ok, if you're reading this.
But then, yeah, my intention is to remind everyone on what is their mission in the future. A clear future is something everyone needs.

Whoa!!! That place is one huge bright place!!! Full of lights and tourists.
In this place, we took the stage and proceeded with presentations from some representatives of these school children. One SAS boy was very energetic and he caught the crowd. Haha, nice one there.
Then, we had a photographic session for the PAPER!!! Yay, Im famous!!!!!
And guess what? I got to speak on the stage, with a mic, AND a whole crowd!! Whohohoa!!!!
Something I missed doing here which I kinda regret now... :(

Sale is up! Whos buying it??!!
These SBP students really know how to attract customers, from marriage scenes, pets impersonating and even TV ads mimicking. I'm very sure these memories will be etched in my head here for quite a long time. Congratz people!
It ended quite early, hence we played Bottle Game and Bomb2. They really got me on my toes, they were HEATING the hall, like, dramatically FAST!!! We totally had a whole lot of fun that time! And to those teams which died in the Bomb Game, they had to be reincarnated from the 'dead' to be punished with the Snell Move. Honestly, it was a cute thing to be done to be cute.

To all teenagers, students and especially SBP students who are reading my blog here, my tip/advice/quotation is:
Your life is always filled with choice. Choosing the right one is surely benefiting and making the wrong choice is tremendously chaotic for sure.
By the way, you also need these; structured plan, effort, commitment and belief.
Steh auf, wenn du am Boden bist!

Too Complicated

I'm taking a very long look at life.




*after an eternity...

So many things that makes me feel like I want to commit suicide. I can't take it. Too heavy.

The Tanyalah Ustaz show has come up with a very thought-provoking issue; teens.
They discussed about the problems arising from teens, the relationship between them and their parents and their relationship with their friends. Yeah, the more the discussion prolonged, the more disturbing it gets for me. And why? Because I'm in the middle of it.

Only a few issues I will raise here.

1. Siblings problem.
Between siblings, there are somethings that the parents have to pay attention to. Equally treating them is one of the things.

2. Child nurturing.
In nurturing them, to teach them on the fundamentals of everything. Not suddenly saying "don't do that!" or "don't do this!" And I kinda feel (which is what I'm doing oppositely now to people younger than myself) that punishments, threats and stern teaching is not the best way, as I believe the long term effect will kick in dangerously in their life.

3. 'Warm'ing up.
If I can be very friendly and hostile to other children and cute+cuddly+adorable 'entities',...

Too bad, I'm not very strong when encountering this kind of issues.
Nevertheless, I'm working on it and I really appreciate it if help is offered.
