The New Red Warriors & MH370

This week is the week of good and bad news. The bad news is, our Prime Minister has announced that the flight MH370 has 'ended' its journey in the middle of the Indian Ocean and that all those on board did not survive. It ended a fortnight of uncertainty of the fate of the Boeing 777ER (picture below) and presented a mind-boggling mystery for the flight experts all over the world. As a Malaysian through and through, I feel for those involved, especially the relatives of the passengers and the crews, as many of them were Malaysians. I refrained from posting about all the theories and conspiracies out of respect for them, and this is my first and maybe last posting on this subject. Deep inside, I still hope that there will be survivors, but I may accept that the chances are quite slim.

The good news is, The Red Warriors welcome several new players. Brendan Gan, Mohd Fitri Omar and Wan Zack Haikal will surely make TRW stronger in the remaining of the Malaysian Super League. Currently, TRW is third in the standing with 13 points, the same points tally with the league leaders, Terengganu. For starters, let us cheer them up when we 'entertain' Johor Darul Takzim tonight at the Sultan Mohd IV stadium.

Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge

The Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah bridge is the second Penang bridge which connects Batu Kawan on the mainland and Batu Maung on the Penang island. It is 24km long and it is currently the longest bridge in South East Asia. 

Yesterday, I drove on it and the feeling was wonderful. There were not many cars because it was Saturday, 8.30 in the morning. It was more suitable for those who are always travelling between Penang and the south, mainly Kuala Lumpur as those who wants to go East, whom includes myself, may have to turn back to the left where the first bridge is.  However, I was just taking the opportunity to make use of the holiday time to actually be among the second Penang bridge users. 

The cable stayed resembling that on the first bridge

Form 5A students

There's nothing more gladdening to a teacher than to see his students do well in their studies, especially in the very subject he taught them. Seeing the happy faces on my students today was more than enough for me to share their joy. Likewise, those who didn't get good results should be celebrated also because they already did their best in the exam. In fact, I was more inclined to see my 5 Jujur students than my 5 Arif students, particularly Rizal Azman and Awanis, who passed their English paper. Truth to be told, I was quite shocked to learn that Awanis did well, because she was too slow to my liking, in my English lessons. However, I didn't have the chance to meet them both as they didn't turn up to get their results.

As for the 5A students, 7 of them got A. I was not surprise of Siti Nurfatihah's ability to get A+ because she thoroughly deserved it. Laili Najwa was also another one expected to get A, mainly because she is the daughter of teacher Norhayah, who teaches English. 5 of those who managed to get A- were Ros Azimah, Nurul Asyikeen, Nur Atikah Ramli, Siti Nurul Ain Sofea and Nur Izatul Syafika.
