Up, Up, UPSR and away!!!! (CsH)

Thank you s1eve for this video. It was filmed in New Zealand.
To dream the impossible dream. To fight the unbeatable foe.
To bear with unbearable sorrow. To run where the brave dare not go.
To right the unrightable wrong. To love pure and chaste from afar.
To try when your arms are too weary. To reach the unreachable star.
This is my quest to follow that star, no matter how hopeless and no matter how far.
To fight for the right without question or pause, to be willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause.
And I know if I'll only be true to this glorious quest, that my heart will be peaceful and calm,
When I'm laid to my rest.
And the world will be better for this. That one man scorned and covered with scars.
Still strove with his last ounce of courage. To reach the unreachable stars.

Dear Nadia and Ariff,

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Nadia who?
Nadia head if you want to come in

Knock, knock,
Who's there?
Ariff who?
Ariff-verdeci UPSR.
(Arriverdeci is 'good-bye' in Italian)

We overheard this conversation 2 days ago when we were waiting at Tung Shin Hospital. This father was talking on the phone about his daughter who will be sitting for her UPSR ( Primary School Assessment Examination - like the 11 plus).
"She's got 6As in her school Examination and usually the school's Examination is harder than the UPSR. I think she can get 7As."

We do not want you to worry about how many As you score. Just do your very, very best. Remember, after each paper is over, forget about it. Do not discuss your answers with anyone. Just take a nap and then prepare for your next paper.
Of course our doa goes with you both but you also know God only helps those who help themselves.
Loads of love and luck from Tok Iain and Tok Ngah.

Tok Kacang and Tok Ngah look like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Anyway, good luck to both Bella and Ariff.
