Posted: March 20, 2006 by piusranson in Uncategorized

SJAB-GG-NPCC Combined camp? SJAB-GG only combine with NPCC for that campfire night.

Well i was the Group Instructor for the group BONKERS! Hahah. okok. On the First day of Camp, SJAB and GirlGuides actually went for DragonBoating. It was Fun indeed. Our destination for our dragonboating was at Kallang that part. Well some seniors/officers lik Sharon and LiYu didnt get to dragonboat as they didnt pay for it. TIC says so. Ridiculous right?

This guy called Jason, was the boss of the “SAVA”. He briefed us on the dragon boating. as all of us were first-timers. I went with the EFFY group. We went off being the first to move off. I am the timer. Shout till no voice lor. Haha. We had some kinda “Race” between different boats. I guess my boat didnt win. Haha. We played the “ROCK-A-BY” alot of times. Its so fun. I was so wet after the whole thing.

Dragonboating allows each and everyone to build up teamwork. Which i thought was a very good activity though.

We didn’t stayed overnight for the first night. We went home. Came back in the next morning. The 2nd day is the day we went for hiking. Our hiking is in PULAU UBIN. In my life Hiking is always at P.UBIN. Boring ARH. At First supposingly, our group, BONKERS, is the leading group. But because of one high tide, we cant move. Make us become the 2nd or 3rd group instead. lolx.

The night of the second day is the Campfire Night. SJAB-GG-NPCC sang many many CAMPfire Songs. Haha. Everygroup must have its own campfire performance. My group did a stationary Dance to the tune of “Dragostea Din Tei” LOLx. I had night sENtry duty that night. Slept for about 1 hour plus. At first, i tried to act hero, dun sleep. But when i lie down on tt Netball court, straight away deep sleep 1 hr. LOLx.

The next day we had the Games. The telematch. Well, Many things on BALLOONS. DOTZ. blow until throat so dry lor. After games, we were about to go home. We had our final PHOTO TAKING session, by ZHONGMIN. lol. Thats about it!

_:TEARS:_(Narrative Essay)

It started two years ago. Back then, Jessica was in her secondary four life. She was to take her ‘o’ level examinations that year. She did not care about it. She went out every single day. Leaving home in the day and returning back late at night.

Her parents were too tired to control her. Jessica took the examinations too lightly. Far too lighty. She did not think of the outcome that will happen to her. Many of the counsellors had counselled her before, but, to no avail. She just wouldn’t listen. A stubborn girl, she is.

Finally, the days of her ‘o’ level examinations arrived. For that whole week, she merely revised through some notes. She told her friends,”The most, i fail and retake”. After each particular paper that she sat for, she started worrying. She did not complete much of the questions. She, herself, knew that now it was too late to be scared or worried about anything.

The ‘o’ level papers finally came to an end. Many of Jessica’s friend went out to have a celebration. Jessica could only stay at home, thinking of the outcome. She prayed real hard every single day, till the day of the release of the ‘o’ level results, in February the following year.

The day that everyone had been waiting for finally came. On the way to school, Jessica contined praying. People around her all joked and laughed. These increased the fear in Jessica. After the short principal’s speech, the teachers started handing out the results.

Jessica recieved hers’. She did not make it tears started welling in her eyes. The surrounding went silence. The sky turned dark. That was the moment where she truly regretted not studying hard enough for her ‘o’ levels. She blamed God for not answering to her prayers. She realised what she had done to herself. She cried for a total of 7 day, non-stop. She truly regretted … …

ACS(I) 5th Life Sciences Symposium

Posted: March 3, 2006 by piusranson in Uncategorized

It started off when i got released during Mr. Jae’s english lesson. Then we went to have our lunch in the canteen, before we moved off to meet Mr Kenneth Tan. He was supposed to book the london Cab. But it turned out that we booked 2 comfort Taxi to our destination, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent), 121 Dover Road. Monica and me shared a cab, Yongkeong, Ron and Mr Kenneth shared another. We reached there first.

When we reached there, Mr Kenneth reported to the registration counter, before moving into the auditorium. Sat in the auditorium for about 30Minutes before the whole ceremony started. The Principal of ACS(I), Mr Ong, went up to give a speech. The Guest of Honour, Professor Edison Liu, Director of Genome Institute of Singapore, also went up to give a speech.

Professor Liu is born is HK, educated in the US. He went to many many university. He gave a presentation on, ” EVOLUTION “. It includes, Homo Ergaster, Homo Heidelbergensis, Homo Erectus and of cause Homo Sapiens, commonly known as HUMAN. After the speech of Prof Liu, is the prize presentation. Mr kenneth and Yong Keong went up to take out certificates.

After this Prize Presentation, the usher, who was assigned to us, brought us down to the “canteen” to have a drink of something. We decided to start off our tour of the Life science symposium earlier.

We went to our first station,” Crime Scene Investigation “. The students explained how they uses different method of identifying suspects. Fingerprint matching, blood samples. We learnt about twins, Fraternal Twins(Non-identical) and Paternal Twins(Identical). Learnt DNA. They have this machine called the PCR ( Polymerase Chain Reaction ) to duplicate DNAs for sampling. This machine seperate the Double-helix structure to get two seperate strands. Then they used on strand as a template and duplicate millions of them.

Microbes Alive. Learnt about Bacteria and how it works. The medicinal value all these. Bacteria produces Anti-Biotics. But Antibiotics are used to kill bacteria. Superbugs, are bugs which are resistance to antibiotics.

FroG Dissection. Interesting! The presenter at the station showed us the dissect from and tell us the process of dissecting from. First take a needle and poke it up the neck, then mess the brain up, insert the needle into the spinal cord and BREAK IT! DEAD. However, the interesting thing is the heart is still pumping. The heart of the frog is an organ by itself, so it works its own way. The frog that was dissected was a female as the liver is much much more larger than the male’s. And the eggs could be seen. The eyelid of the frog is transparent, so as to protect them from underwater.

The space worm. Newton’s first law. Newton’s law of gravity. Showed us the making of a MIGHTY BEAN. And it is so easy to make one lor. If we buy one mighty bean outside, it cost us 6 DOLLAR. Cheat money sia.

BioMedical equipments. I tried on their BP set, very precise. And their Muscle Stimulation test. I have normal muscles. haha. that Muscle stimulation machine send electricity to the muscle and they calculated the reaction time. I am normal. There was this guy there, who showed us Magic in Science. Unique!

Terrarium! Another interesting things. It maked used of a air tight container. First put in Sand, then u put the plant inside and then you add some water, and then u closed it tight. The plant will photosynthesize, water vapour and oxygen and carbondioxide, is given out all the time and then the water vapour condenses on the container, the plant can make use of the water again. It goes like a cycle.

Hybridization. Crosspolination and SelfPollination. Interesting too! Too many things to sae abt the Symposium! IT ROCKS TOTALLY!

“Welcome aboard Flight SQ 860, arriving in Hong Kong.”

Well, this was the announcements made by the pilot during my flight to Hong Kong. In the airport before walking into the plane, often we have to check for flight info, the depature time, the gate number, etc.

Singapore Airlines Flight SQ 006. I hope everyone remember this incident which happened a few years back. SIA really suffers great loss, they have to compensate each passenger ±1,000,000.

Flight SQ 117. Well, that is an hijack incident, it happened during 1991. In fact, before i was born. Although i am not around in the world when it happened, definitely i read some articles about it.

In my life, i’ve only been aboard on Singapore Airlines. My father works in SATs, so often i got free ticket.

Recently, there are new Budget airline company, which offers cheap flights to passengers. I think this is very unfair to those better known airlines.
