Study crazy, crazy study

I used to not believe that study will make people crazy despite how my parent told me not to study so hard, just do my best will do.

I started to feel the force of the examination, I started to smell the smell of test paper whenever I step into the school. Image cockroach surfer from “Examination fear” due to we have test given out by every teachers that walk into the room. Cockroach scare of school now, really.

Cockroach have decided not to do well for the coming prelims as I need a rest now. Probably just read through the important points will do. (This is what cockroach’s mom suggests). Cockroach is very sick right now, too sick to even think properly, so sick until the brain is as if it is flying.

Learning for the future, learning for the knowledge, but teacher seem to put us into the situation whereby learning is to get good grades and move on which make learning pointless and meaningless.

Sing for Singapore!

Cockroach personal thinks that he can’t sing. Cockroach never dare to sing in the public. However, since it is National Day, I shall sing for Singapore in the public, in the internet!

Okay, what cockroach had done over the weekend was to record “My Island Home”, NDP 2006 song, and ask for comments. Because this is not an easy song to sing, but here it is! English and Chinese version of “My Island Home”. But the top concern is, will your computer catch fire after listen to my singing?

English Version “My Island Home” 2.73MB 02:58

Chinese Version “幸福的图形” 2.71MB 02:58

Disclaimer: Cockroach is not in responsible of any side effect after listening to Cockroach singing. Listen At Your Own Risk!

Mistake in NDP2006 website

It is sad to know that our government don’t know when is Singapore’s National Day.

Why? What make cockroach said that?! Cockroach not afraid to go to jail?!

Cockroach got evidence to support my inference okay! (See cockroach brings in Social studies and History SBQ skills)

Inference: Singapore government don’t know Singapore Birthday


That white space “Happy National Day!” Suppose to be a countdown timer to counter down days to National Day. However, it seem that they made a mistake in the countdown and make National Day one day earlier.

Okay, “To err is nature, to rectify is glory”. Human do made mistake. Hope NDP EXCO team won’t made such mistake again.

Its another weekend which I will be staying at home studying and take care of kids. Doctor gave me an 1 week MC on Thursday because my “machine” is “overheated”. Parents, friends, teachers asked me to rest, but I got no time left. GCE is just around the corner.

I now need to do something with my English, especially spelling, grammar and sentence structure. Because, if I don’t do anything, cockroach will ended up failing the GCE exam. Singapore education made me living in fear because of my English standard. No one helped me in my English when I was young, I don’t have god English foundation, I need to start from the basic. I can score A1s for all my subject but F9 for my English. Study so hard yet in the end because of English, I can’t go anywhere. Sometimes, it make me feel that “study so hard also no use, in the end will also fail the exam.” Lizard said that it is unfair if I got just fail my English and can’t move on. But what can we do? To make my English much better.

Cockroach had tried reading storybooks, newspaper and etc to brush up my English. But the problem is, the words that I learnt can’t go into the brain. The spelling, how people memorize the spelling? How? How? Cockroach is going to be crazy one day because of the failure I made in my studies, pass all subject but English.

Please don’t say cockroach being negative. Even teachers thinks I can’t pass my GCE because of my English. Cockroach is preparing for the worst, where should I go if I fail my GCE?
Cockroach plan:

  1. Work, save up money and go to British Council. Meantime, study for O level in a private school or get a tutor to teach me O level stuff and take exam as private candidates next year.
  2. Or maybe, follow my parent idea, go to ITE.

Which plan is better? Cockroach don’t want to go to ITE, never. I know what I want to achieve in my life, what is my goals, going ITE might just ruin my future.

Can anyone give me advise?
