Time To Give Up

My current situation has evolved into its worst stage. After struggling for more than one and a half year in A-Math, it has finally reached a point for me to do this.

If I'm a bit more intelligent and hardworking, perhaps I will learn to love A-Math again...

兄弟哪有隔夜仇?

此时此刻,我难过极了。

我实在无法相信我家竟然会有这种人存在,霸道加上态度上的问题,而且还蛮不讲理。

几个星期前我跟他大打出手,因此导致我对他的憎恨更加更加地深。过后的几个星期我都懒得理他。

或许以前一直常捉弄他,常常搞得大家都不开心,这样突如其来的转变倒是令我感到较自在点。

前几天,我拥有了我人生中的第一台笔记型电脑。就这样,我和他开始一起玩线上游戏 (因为家里只有一架电脑,所以我们都是轮流玩的)。我原本以为可以开开心心地维持现状,但不知何故,他的老毛病又犯了。

我忍气吞声。

人们常说: “兄弟哪有隔夜仇?” 我倒要看看到底有没有。

This Is What I Call Ownage

I thought "School Of Choice" E-Portal has closed down, but to my surprise it's pretty much active.

There's this thread in the Student's Discussion Forum which I've been wanting to check it out long time ago.

The thread was started by Aliff in the Year 2006 and surprisingly it's still in the top position in the Year 2008. In other words, for 2 whole years that thread is the undisputed "Thread Champion"! Shouldn't "School Of Choice" reward Aliff the creator?

Most popular thread hands down. See for yourself, it's simply too obvious not to notice.

If this isn't Ownage, I don't know what is.

Preliminary Examinations

This time round, it doesn't matter whether I pass or fail, its a matter of how "well" I've done.

A-Math for example, I'm very certain people who failed badly (like me) will be "strongly encouraged" to be absent on the actual exam. Why? For "School of Choice" it has always been 100% pass for A-Math every year, so naturally how can "they" simply let us break the record this year? (Somehow, I would love to do so)

My blog is a platform for me to predict and analyse my results. The accuracy is found to be 99.99% accurate! (just joking)


Legend

P - I Pass!
F - High possibility of failing
P / F - Fate will decide whether I Pass or Fail
F / U - Sure fail, high percentage of getting U grade


Lets start with the Practical Test first. Physics came first for me, and honestly I did pretty badly. I don't understand, was it the voltmeter faulty or I'm the one faulty? I got 2 same readings for one of the results, which I later confirmed with the guys that it isn't possible to have same readings. WHAT?! Next was Chemistry, the observation was alright but explanation was a totally different story for me. F

English - Composition was okay, I managed to write 400+ words because previously I can't even break 350 words. For Letter Writing I got the format wrong. As for Comprehension, I've absolutely no comments. The last time for my English I either get borderline pass or fail by a margin, so... P / F

Social Studies - Looking forward to how many marks I will be getting because this is probably the first time I completed 2 essays! P / F

Design & Technology - If I pass, pigs will fly. F

Geography Elective - Last minute revision, on the spot hugging the Buddha's leg. F

Science Chemistry - Worst, opposite of what I studied. F

Science Physics - Even without the small fire incident, I can pass! P

E-Math - Not sure what will be the outcome, I mean the grade. P

A-Math - Seriously, good game. F / U

Crushed Paper, Crushed Life

We humans are similar to a piece of paper.

So fragile, yet so useful. How weak are we? As easy as crushing a paper. One particular mistake can easily take things that are important away from us.

However, it only takes a little help from someone for the paper to make a comeback and be reuse again. This, I believe is called New Life.

No one is perfect. No doubt there will be flaws around, but having a New Life means you still stand a chance to repent on your mistakes and therefore, improving as you go on. It's so much better that staying crushed.

What will you choose? A changeover life or a life that remains crushed forever?

Singapore Science Centre

Perhaps my science is getting weaker recently, so I'm going Singapore Science Centre to reflect upon myself.

That wasn't the case of course, I simply felt like going. XD

Anyway, it was located at Jurong East. Take a short walk and you can easily spot its outstanding entrance even from far.

Along the way, I nearly tripped over by these weird-looking platforms.

Am I lucky or what? An exhibition on Dinosaurs!

At the entrance was a huge plastic Dinosaur, meet Stan the T-Rex. It was named after the person who found its fossil. Gosh just look at the size! If it's still alive, I bet the World Heavyweight Champion would be him! Probably Stan was too big, that's why they replaced the interesting "balls rolling" glass box. I wonder where's the glass box now? Read on to find out!

After I purchased the ticket for $6 (adult price), I headed straight to 'Dinosaurs Alive' Exhibition. It was pretty small inside, but filled with a lot more plastic Dinosaurs. They were immobilised in the photo, but in fact they were moving like robots. I didn't read any of their descriptions because the place was kinda dark.

More plastic Dinosaurs...

See how dark the place is? I tried to feel the "bones", but I'm too short to reach.

Since when Science Centre collect toys? But hey I recognised one of them, it was exactly the same one in my house.

I felt so tiny at this point of time. My foot size wasn't even 1/4 of T-Rex's! Seems like the Dinosaurs really dominate the land.

Here I am at the central of Science Center. Other than the "balls rolling" glass box that I could recall, it was this hardworking Einstein. Climbing up and down effortlessly, I must thank him for his great contribution to the Science Centre. To be honest, the more I looked at him, the eerier I felt. Say hi to him!

Icy Bodies. Great light work.

Remember this? No matter how hard I huffed and puffed, the cyclone still forms.

In between periods there were this Tesla Coil demonstration. It was really cool and loud. Saw the purple colored voltage? With 3.5 million amount of voltage, just one touch and become barbecued pork. Well at least I learned that voltage can travel through air and not just wires.

One thing that amazed me was the crowd. All along I thought Science Centre would be quite deserted, but I was wrong. There were tourists (of course), couples, families and even students from Kindergarden, Primary School, Secondary School and Junior College.

Next I went to the 'Science Of F1' Exhibition. Seriously I'm lucky, the exhibition was supposed to end on Sunday but they extended the deadline instead.

The suit wore by F1 racers.

Ferrari Enzo. Really fascinating car, the description there stated that only 2 people in Singapore own it. Can I have one too?

I found it! The "rolling balls" glass box. But I don't understand why it was placed in the F1 Exhibition. Any relations? Anyway I kind of missed it, so I spent around 20 minutes playing it.

Structures made out of thick wires (the wires were covered by a material I-assumed-is plastic). Lights were flashing around it. To me it looks like a mad woman in a rampaging mode.

I saw this cute robot girl with a colourful "hairstyle". Funnily she resembles the huge 'PowerPuff Dynamo'.

Somehow I'm in a movie and the next scene would be aliens popping out in front of me and ate me up! Unfortunately, there was none. This pathway is in the 'I-Space' Exhibition. Figurines such as Star Wars characters, Aliens and anything related to Space were exhibited there.

I took a deep breath at the Eco Garden. Nature is still the best.

This place is called 'The Lab'. The last time I was here I think I haven't reach the age of 8. Well it's a pretty good learning place for children especially.

Another exhibition named 'Water H2O = Life'. At the entrance I read through 'The Singapore Water Story'. In this exhibition it shows not only about Singapore water supply, but also on how people from different places cope with water difficulties. For example how to get fresh water, what to do during flooding and how water pollution affects marine animals.

A Tufa Tower. During low tide, they will be revealed. If not, they're usually underwater.

The Galapagos Marine Iguana.

I forgot the name of this marine animal. It looks really real and I got the feeling that I'm totally submerged underwater.

Furry Polar Bear. Sadly, they are disappearing and will become extinct in less than 100 years time! Global warming...humans...

Interesting way on how the African children get their fresh groundwater. The device is called PlayPump, it act as a Merry-Go-Round. So when the children turns it, the water will eventually get pumps up. You get the water and able to have fun at the same time, why not?

I arrived at 'The World Of Energy'. This entire wall signifies how animals depend on each other, which also known as Biodiversity.

Real-life-looking Eskimos.

Poor man got electrocuted. Ouch!

I'm 50kg on Earth...

but so heavy on Jupiter!

Right after that, I strolled around and saw this display. It looks extremely familiar to me. OH! Geography Elective!

Professional workmanship here - A peacock craft work made of aluminium. That's right, the material used for Coke cans.

My personal train. I love high-tech, so there's a TV in front.

GROSS! This is a real brain being sealed up. I can see shreds of the brain flowing around the water clearly! *vomit*

Don't underestimate this staircase, the paintings and pictures on the wall are very meaningful.

Look closely at this picture. Nice isn't it?

Outside the Exhibition Halls, there are loads of playable structures for everyone! One such structure would be this cute fish made of steel. How does it work? You have to find out yourself when you are there!

For your information, there's a library at the second floor. You can rest and read newspapers too!

Honestly speaking, the trip was worth it! All the fun you can get, all the cool demonstrations you can watch, I'm sure you will not go home without learning something! So I hope you'll visit Singapore Science Centre soon too. Best is, with your family and friends!
