Parking

Teks: Rozanah Zakaria

Rules for parking:

1) Park in the designated area
2) Park inside the parking lot
3) Be considerate when you need to park behind others' car(s), ie shift your gear to Neutral and leave your phone number (can put under your wiper or display on the dashboard so it can be seen) to be contacted.
4) Never! Never! Never park in front of someone's gate! Whatever the reason may be. For god sake, go find a space for your car! Surely walking a little bit far won't do you any harm! *sigh*
5) Park your car responsibly, as you never know, your blocking a car might cause fatal as someone is denied a rush and immediate attention at the hospital for any emergency, simply because of ONE INCONSIDERATE 'parker' (if I may say so)!

Last note, always be considerate. Life doesn't just revolve around YOU alone!

Happy parking! ;)

Live to ease not burden

Text: Rozanah Zakaria

Live to ease, not to burden! Easier said than done. Most times, people are comfortable, or may I say, TOO COMFORTABLE in blaming-game rather than seeking for solutions. It is undeniable that there's quite a number of us who always think positively and look at problems as opportunities to help ease others' burdens instead of making them worse; however, I could say that our daily encounter is these people who love the finger-pointing game the most!

Let's us live our life to the fullest, in the sense that we always seek to understand, rather than always hoping to be understood!

Happy blessed Thursday!

Tackling MUET Reading 800/3 Paper


Text: Rozanah Zakaria

How to read meaningfully? When you start reading a text, set the timer to 15 minutes the most. This is for reading as well as answering those questions posed. Why 15 minutes? This is because you are allocated 90 minutes for all 6 reading texts. So it goes down to 15 minutes per text. Be reminded that it is the MOST, so it is better if you can spare 5-10 minutes extra in the end for you to be able to double check your answers.

Worry that you are not able to finish within the stipulated time? Worry not as your reading has to come with a certain speed. To achieve that, you need a lot of practice for sure! Read and read and read, a lot of materials, so you will get use to reading fast.

Remember, practice makes perfect!

Good luck!

Mahu Kurangkan Kesan Negatif Penggunaan Gajet Terhadap Otak?

Teks: Rozanah Zakaria (Olahan idea daripada Dr Rizal Abu Bakar)
Sumber: Group Telegram 'Neuroversiti by Dr Rizal'

Jika anda tidak menggunakan gajet untuk kerja, agak mudah untuk mempraktikkan 'less screen time' ini bukan? Bagi dewasa penggunaan gajet kurang daripada 4 jam sehari adalah had yang masih boleh diterima.

Namun, jika anda menggunakan gajet sepenuhnya untuk kerja, bagaimana? Mustahil anda hanya mengadap skrin untuk 4 jam, bukan?

Menurut Dr Rizal Abu Bakar dalam 'youtube channel' beliau bertajuk 'Neurobics 101 Tips Untuk Otak oleh Dr Rizal Abu Bakar', anda boleh mempraktikkan kaedah yang akan diterangkan di bawah untuk mengembalikan potensi otak anda ke tahap asal.

Kaedahnya:
Bagi setiap 20 minit penggunaan skrin, berhenti sebentar, pandang jauh (anggaran jarak 20 meter), selama 20 saat. Itu sahaja yang perlu anda lakukan untuk menjaga kesihatan otak anda jika anda bekerja dengan gajet.

Jadi, apa pun situasi anda, pasti ada caranya untuk anda menjaga kesihatan otak dan memastikannya sentiasa berada pada tahap tertinggi untuk memanfaatkan hidup yang indah ini.

Selamat berhujung minggu!

Beban Guru Kurang 2019?

Teks: Rozanah Zakaria

Saya membaca lembaran kata-kata Menteri Pendidikan dalam suratkhabar The Star online. Hmm, I really hope it will REALLY materialise throughout this blessed 2019. Really hoping so as we teachers have been hoping for this for, like, forever?

Jika Malaysia mahu menjadi negara maju, institusi pendidikan mestilah kukuh dahulu. Untuk mengukuhkannya, guru-guru dan para pelajar haruslah diberi peluang untuk achieve their full potential by not giving them unnecessary workload that will disrupt their focus in reaching their full potentials.

Well, that's just my two cents, let's wait, pray and see what will happen in the coming 362 days. 

Happy new year!
