After that, at about 9:30 a.m., it was the moment that everyone (especially me) was waiting for: the morning tea break. And that was all - it was a short but meaningful session.
Not many colleagues turned up this time, most probably they had gone back to their hometown to fast with the other family members as this week will be a long weekend. School will only start on Wednesday after Monday and Tuesday were declared holidays.
There will be other programmes coming soon which everyone should be looking forward to.
Since Ramadhan is the month of giving, there are dates given by colleagues and office staff to bring home. May Allah bless all the kind souls.
My PC is back but it is as if I am getting a brand new machine. Why? All my documents and picture files are not there anymore. The people at the computer shop could NOT do any back up to save them. As for me, I have to accept this as my fate (and my ignorance for not saving all the documents and pictures into, let's say, a portable hard disk). Nevertheless, I, on behalf of the people whose computers were infected with FB's "how are u?" virus, hereby pray that the creator of the virus, his/her children and grandchildren and great grandchildren will suffer throughout their miserable lives before they were all burned in hell. Thank you.

Can you spot the error? It looks kind of complicated but what you should be looking for is a spelling error in one of the words.
*NOTE: The blog has not been updated for days as my PC is still in the computer shop after being infected with FB's "hi how are u?" virus. I am doing my work on the (school's) notebook which is something I don't like but I don't have any other choice. I miss my PC very much.

From the novel "The Prisoner of Zenda", there many lessons that we can learn. One of the most prominent one is we must be brave. This value is shown by the main character, Rudolf Rassendyll.
From the beginning of the story, Rassendyll has shown he is a brave man. In the early part of the novel, he impersonated King Rudolf V. This is due to his same features: red hair, blue eyes and long nose. When he saw the King, it was as if he was looking into the mirror. It takes a brave man to do this as Rassendyll could be killed by the King's enemies but he carried out his duty right until the end.

In order to get high marks for Literature Section [Paper 2] PMR:
1. Read the question carefully and understand what you have to do actually.
2. In the introduction paragraph of, there MUST be a statement that directly answers the question.
3. Provide DETAILED description/example from the novel.
4. Most of the time, try to provide three reasons/events to support your answer.
5. Be organized ~ good paragraphing with introduction and concluding paragraphs help a lot.
6. Do not worry about writing long essay - the more you know, the more you tend to write and this should be good.
QUESTION: Based on the novel that you have read, write about a character that you like and give reasons why.
From the novel that I have read, "The Prisoner of Zenda", there is one character that I like very much. He is none other than the main character, Rudolf Rassendyll.
The first reason why I like Rassendyll is because he is a brave man. In the early part of the story, he was asked to impersonate King Rudolf V. This was due to his same features: red hair, long nose and blue eyes. When he saw the King for the first time, it was as if he was looking into a mirror. It takes a brave man to do this as Rassendyll could be killed by the King's enemies. And he did just that until the King was finally saved and his throne was secured.
The second reason is Rassendyll is a loyal person. There was one time when he was offered a bribe of fifty thousand pounds by Black Michael to leave Ruritania, but he refused. The second time, he was offered one hundred thousand pounds. Although it was a large sum of money, he still rejected it because of his loyalty to the King.
The third reason is Rassendyll is an honourable character. Despite the fact that he was deeply in love with Princess Flavia, he did not marry her right until the end. Because of his honourable act, Rassendyll risked his own life to save the King instead of killing him. This shows that duty must come before love and personal feeling.
As a conclusion, the character that I like the most is Rudolf Rassendyll. He has displayed many positive values as Fritz had once said, "The best men are not often Kings".

16TH JULY ~ I had to rush to Zulfadzelie's wedding as I was in the middle of the Drama Workshop in school. So I went off during lunch break but it was a bit too early as the bride and bridegroom were busy preparing themselves for the event. Nevertheless, there were a few of ex-students around so I was still happy to be there.
17th JULY ~ The wedding was held at the same place of the second wedding which I attended yesterday. However, everything was of a totally different decor. This time round there were more ex-students I met so it was some sort of a mini reunion.
I guess these would be the last wedding events attended before the arrival of Ramadhan, the fasting month. I do expect more weddings though after that.
