LESSON 1

Genie in a magic lamp stock photos

A junior manager, a senior manager and their boss are on their way to a meeting.

On their way through a park, they come across a wonder lamp.
They rub the lamp and a ghost appears.
The ghost says :

” Normally, one is granted three wishes, but as you are three, I will allow one wish each. ”
So the eager senior manager shouted : ” I want the first wish.
I want to be in the Bahamas, on a fast boat and have no worries.”
Pfufffff …. and he was gone.
Now the junior manager could not keep quiet and shouted :

” I want to be in Florida with beautiful girls, plenty of food and cocktails. ”
Pfufffff …. And he was also gone.
The boss calmly said : ” I want these two idiots back in the office after lunch at 12.30 pm. “
MORAL OF THE STORY : ALWAYS LET THE BOSS SPEAK FIRST

Standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand,
” Listen,” said the CEO, ” this is a very sensitive and important document,
and my secretary has left. Can you make this thing work?”
” Certainly,” said the young executive.
He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.
” Excellent, excellent! ” said the CEO as his paper disappeared inside the shredder machine.

” I just need one copy. “

An American and a Japanese were sitting on the plane on the way to LA When
the American turned to the Japanese and asked

” What kind of -ese are you ? ”
The Japanese, confused, replied : ” Sorry, but I don’t understand what you mean. ”
The American repeated : ” What kind of -ese are you ? “
Again, the Japanese was confused over the question.
The American, now irritated, then yelled : ” What kind of -ese are you
… Are you a Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese !, etc……??? ”

The Japanese then replied : ” Oh, I am a Japanese. “
A while later the Japanese turned to the American and asked what kind of ‘key’ was he.
The American, frustrated, yelled : ” What do you mean what kind of -kee’ am I ?! “
The Japanese said, ” Are you a Yankee, donkee, or monkee ? ”
LESSON No 3 : NEVER INSULT ANYONE



LESSON 4

Magic Lamp stock photos

There were these 4 guys — a Russian, a German, an American and a French,

who together found this small genie bottle.
When they rubbed the bottle, a genie appeared.
Thankful that the 4 guys had released him out of the bottle, he said :
” Next to you all are 4 swimming pools, I will give each of you a wish.
When you run towards the pool and jump, you shout what you want the pool of water to become,
then your wish will come true. ”
The French wanted to start.

He ran towards the pool, jumped and shouted : ” Wine ! “
The pool immediately changed into a pool of wine.
The Frenchman was very happy, swimming and drinking from the pool.
Next is the Russian’s turn.

He did the same and shouted : ” Vodka ! ” and immersed himself into a pool of vodka.
The German was next and he jumped and shouted : ” Beer ! “

He was likewise very contented with his beer-filled pool.
The last is the American.

He was running towards the pool when suddenly he steps on a banana peel.
He slipped towards the pool and shouted, ” Shit !!!!!!!………”
LESSON # 4 : ALWAYS THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU SAY SOMETHING,

BECAUSE SOMETIMES ACCIDENTS DO HAPPEN !


LESSON 5

Bladder stock photos


The organs of the body were having a meeting, trying to decide who was in charge.

Each organ took a turn to speak up.
Brain……… I should be in charge because I run all body functions.
Blood…….. I should be in charge because I circulate oxygen for the brain.
Stomach… I should be in charge because I process food for the brain.
Legs……… I should be in charge because I take the brain where it wants to go.
Eyes……… I should be in charge because I let the brain see where it’s going.
Asshole…..I should be in charge because I get rid of your waste.
All the other parts laughed so hard and this made the asshole very mad.
To prove his point, the asshole immediately slammed tightly closed and
stayed that way for 6 days, refusing to rid the body of any waste whatsoever.

Day 1 – Brain got a terrible headache and cried out for relief
Day 2 – Stomach got bloated and began to ache terribly
Day 3 – Legs got cramps and became unstable
Day 4 – Eyes became watery and vision became blurred
Day 5 – Blood became toxic and poisoned the body
Day 6 -The other organs agreed to let the asshole be in charge.
MORAL OF THE STORY: NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, OR HOW IMPORTANT YOU THINK YOU ARE,

YOU WILL FIND THAT IT IS ALWAYS AN ASSHOLE THAT IS TRULY IN CHARGE

Sistem Kewangan Malaysia

Sistem Kewangan Malaysia # 1

Kenapakah kita memerlukan institusi kewangan dalam kehidupan seharian kita.Pernah kah anda terfikir hidup kita tanpa bank dimana kita boleh menyimpan wang kita secara selamat? Ataupun hidup tanpa mesin ATM yang membolehkan kita mengeluarkan wang kita hampir setiap masa. Ataupun hidup tanpa kad kredit yang memboleh kan kita membuat pembelian terlebih dahulu dan membuat pembayaran kemudian?

Institusi kewangan juga membolehkan kita membeli rumah dan kereta idaman yang kebanyakan dari kita tidak mampu untuk membeli secara tunai.

Besar kemungkinan oleh kerana kita telah biasa didedahkan dengan kemudahan-kemudahan yang ditawarkanoleh institusi-institusi kewangan maka kadang2 kita tidak begitu sedar tentang kemudahan2 yang ditawarkan oleh mereka.

Tujuan saya menulis artikel ini ialah untuk memberi pengenalan kepada saudara-saudara tentang institusi kewangan di Malaysia dan kemudahan-kemudahan yang ditawarkan mereka. Sebelum saya menulis tentang kewangan peribadi seperti pelaburan,simpanan, bajet dan lain-lain saya rasa adalah wajar untuk saudara-saudara mengenali tentang institusi kewangan yang terdapat di Malaysia ini.Bagaimanapun saya tidak akan menulis secara komprehensif tentang semua institusi kewangan di Malaysia ini tapi cuma akan lebih menyentuh institusi kewangan komersial yang menawarkan khidmat kewangan kepada orang2 perseorangan seperti kita (retail banking)

1. Apakah itu institusi kewangan komersial (financial intermediaries) ?

Institusi kewangan komersial turut dikenali sebagai financial intermediaries. Dari sudut bahasa ianya bermaksud orang tengah dalam kewangan.Dari segi definisi kewangan pula financial intermediaries bermaksud ‘Satu institusi kewangan yang menjadi orang tengah diantara Unit defisit dan Unit lebihan’

Unit lebihan (surplus unit) ialah mereka yang mempunyai lebihan wang yang disimpan dalam bank dalam bentuk akaun simpanan,akaun semasa(akaun yang menggunakan buku cek) dan pelaburan.

Unit defisit pula ialah mereka yang menggunakan perkhidmatan bank dalam bentuk pinjaman untuk tujuan modal perniagaan, pembelian rumah, pembelian kereta dan sebagainya.

Oleh itu jika anda lihat dari segi definisi maka institusi kewangan sebenarnya bertindak sebagai orang tengah diantara kedua2 unit ini. Apa yang mereka buat ialah cuba menarik pelanggan2 dari Unit Lebihan untuk menyimpan dan melabur di institusi mereka dan dana ini digunakan untuk memberi pinjaman kepada pelanggan2 dari Unit defisit. Institusi kewangan akan membuat keuntungan dari perbezaan kadar faedah yang dikenakan.

Sebagai contoh Bank A menerima simpanan sebanyak RM100,000 dari Ali.Ali dibayar sebanyak 4% setahun sebagai faedah simpanan maka kos pada bank ialah

4% X RM100,000

= RM4,000 setahun

Bank A kemudian berjaya memberi pinjaman kepada Ah Tan
dengan mengenakan faedah sebanyak 10% setahun. Maka
hasil kepada bank ialah:-

10% X RM100,000

= RM10,000 setahun

Oleh itu untung kasar bank ialah = Hasil faedah pinjaman diberi – Kos faedah simpanan

= RM10,000 – RM4,000

= RM6,000

Untung kasar tidak termasuk lain2 kos yang terpaksa dibayar oleh bank seperti sewa banggunan, gaji pekerja dan sebagainya.

Bagaimanapun bank bukan sekadar mendapat hasil dari faedah semata-mata.Mereka juga mendapat hasil dari ‘ non-interest sources’seperti berikut:-

i) Sewa peti keselamatan (Safe deposit box)
ii) Bayaran perkhidmatan mengeluar kan cek jurubank (banker’s cheque)
iii) Bayaran perkhidmatan memproses pinjaman (loan processing fee)
iv) Bayaran perkhidmatan mengeluarkan Cek Kembara (Travellers cheque)
v) Bayaran perkhidmatan menggunakan ATM (Seperti BSN n Maybank)

Dan lain2 lagi caj perkhidmatan yang semakin hari semakin banyak dikenakan oleh pihak Bank.

Mari kita lihat pula apakah perkhidmatan simpanan/pelaburan yang ditawarkan olehpihak bank:-

1. Akaun Simpanan – Ini adalah akaun yang hampir kesemua dari kita yang mempunyainya. Ini adalah kerana akaun ini adalah yang paling mudah untuk dibuka dan diperlukan untuk tujuan kemasukan gaji kita dan juga untuk tujuan keselamatan.

Antara ciri-ciri utama akaun simpanan ialah :-

1. Mudah dibuka – Untuk warganegara Malaysia amat mudah untuk membuka akaun simpanan.Anda cuma perlu membawa kad pengenalan dan membawa wang simpanan minima yang diperlukan untuk membuka akaun simpanan. Wang simpanan minima untuk membuka akaun berbeza dari bank ke bank dan paling rendah ialah sekitar RM100.Untuk kanak2 yang berumur dibawah 12 tahun turut dibenarkan membuka akaun tapi mestilah dibuka bersama ibu/bapa/penjaga dan sebarang pengeluaran dibuat oleh
ibu/bapa/penjaga dan akaun ini dipanggil akaun Amanah/trust account.

2. Mudah untuk mengeluar kan wang simpanan – Antara sebab kenapa akaun simpanan digemari oleh kita ialah kerana proses pengeluaran wang adalah amat mudah samaada melalui pengeluaran secara membawa buku simpanan ke bank ataupun melalui kad ATM kita di mesin-mesin ATM (Auto teller Machine).Dengan system MEPS pula membolehkan kita menggunakan mesin-mesin ATM bank-bank lain tapi kita dikenakan cajperkhidmatan sebanyak RM1 bagi setiap transaksi pengeluaran.

Dengan perkembangan teknologi terkini kita juga boleh membuat pembayaran ke stesyen2 minyak, pasar raya dan lain2 outlet secara pemindahan terus dengan system Kad Debit dimana wang simpanan kita akan terus dipindahkan terus ke kedai atau stesyen2 minyak tersebut tanpa sebarang kos tambahkan. Teknologi terbaru juga membolehkan anda membuat pembayaran bil dan membuat pemindahan dana melalui perbankan telefon (Telebanking) dan juga melalui internet (internet banking)

3. Mudah untuk berurusan – Dengan perkembangan teknologi terkini kini kita juga boleh membuat deposit ke akaun kita atau akaun orang lain dengan menggunakan Mesin Deposit Tunai (Cash Deposit Machine) . Urusan untuk mengemaskinikan buku simpanan juga boleh digunakan di mesin kemaskini buku simpanan.

4. Kadar Faedah yang rendah –Oleh karana cirri akaun simpanan yang mudah dikeluar kan dan tiada baki minima yang perlu di kekalkan dalam akaun maka kadar faedah yang dibayar pada akaun jenis ini adalah amat rendah. Anda perlu ingat bahawa fungsi akaun ini bukan lah untuk pelaburan tapi untuk kemudahan pengeluaran tunai pada bila2 masa. Oleh itu jika anda ada tetapkan sesuatu jumlah untuk tujuan simpanan yang anda memang tidak akan sentuh maka adalah wajar anda keluar kan jumlah ini dan masukkan kedalam akaun simpanan tetap ataupun kedalam akaun pelaburan Amanah seperti dalam Amanah Saham Berhad yang memberikan pulangan yang lebih tinggi.

Peebles…

Tq to Aida for the story..It does tell you that sometimes we need to
think ‘outside the box’ ie be more creative..

================

Many years ago in a small Indian village, a farmer had the misfortune
of owing a large sum of money to a village moneylender.

The moneylender, who was old and ugly, fancied the farmer’s beautiful
daughter. So he proposed a bargain.

He said he would forgo the farmer’s debt if ! he could marry his
daughter.

Both the farmer and his daughter were horrified by the proposal. So
the cunning money-lender suggested that they let providence decide the matter.

He told them that he would put a black pebble and a white pebble into
an empty money bag.

Then the girl would have to pick one pebble from the bag.

1) If she picked the black pebble, she would become his wife and her
father’s debt would be forgiven.

2) If she picked the white pebble she need not marry him and her
father’s debt would still be forgiven.

3) But if she refused to pick a pebble, her father would be thrown
into jail.

They were standing on a pebble strewn path in the farmer’s field. As
they talked, the moneylender bent over to pick up two pebbles. As he
picked them up, the sharp-eyed girl noticed that he had picked up two
black pebbles and put them into the bag. He then asked the girl to
pick a pebble from the bag.

Now, imagine that you were standing in the field.

 

What would you have done if you were the girl?

 

If you had to advise her, what would you have told her?

Careful analysis would produce three possibilities:

1. The girl should refuse to take a pebble.

2. The girl should show that there were two black pebbles in the bag
and expose the money-lender as a cheat.

3. The girl should pick a black pebble and sacrifice herself in order
to save her father from his debt and imprisonment.

Take a moment to ponder over the story. The above story is used with
the hope that it will make us appreciate the difference between
lateral and logical thinking. The girl’s dilemma cannot be solved with
traditional logical thinking. Think of the consequences if she chooses
the above logical answers.

What would you recommend to the Girl to do?

Scroll down if you give up……………..

Well, here is what she did ….

 

The girl put her hand into the moneybag and drew out a pebble. Without looking at it, she fumbled and let it fall onto the pebble-strewn path where it immediately became lost among all the other pebbles.

“Oh, how clumsy of me,” she said. “But never mind, if you look into
the bag for the one that is left, you will be able to tell which
pebble I picked.”

Since the remaining pebble is black, it must be assumed that she had
picked the white one. And since the money-lender dared not admit his
dishonesty, the girl changed what seemed an impossible situation into
an extremely advantageous one.


MORAL OF THE STORY:

Most complex problems do have a solution.
It is only that we don’t attempt to think.

Tips jawab soalan

  1. Cari jumlah asal barangan atau benda dalam soalan.Kalau diberi itu merupakan jumlah keseluruhan atau merupakan 100%.
  2. Kalau tak diberi jumlah keseluruhan maka biasanya soalan itu memerlukan anda mencari jumlah 100% itu.
  3. Baca betul2 soalan yang diberi dan semak jumlah asal dan berapa jumlah peratus yang soalan mahukan.

 

Contoh penyelesaian

 

  1. Ali has 50 apples and he found out that 20 % of it is rotten. How many good apples he has left?

 

Analisa soalan:-

 

1. Objek yang ditanya – Apple

2. Jumlah keseluruhan yang asal – 50 apples

3. Peratusan yang rotten atau rosak – 20%

4. Apa yang dicari / ditanya soalan? – Berapa apple yang tidak rotten yang tinggal.

5. Macam mana nak cari ?

1. Jumlah apple yang tak busuk = Jumlah keseluruhan asal – Jumlah yang rotten

2. Number of rotten apple = 20% of all the apple

Penyelasaian

  1. Kita tahu 50 apples = All the apples = 100%
  2. Nak cari 20% from the 100% atau 20% from the 50 apples

Solution

 

100% = 50

 

20% = 20/100 * 50

 

20 X 50

100

 

20 X 50 1 (cancell out the 50 n 100 / matikan 50 dengan 100)
100 2

 

20

2

 

= 10

 

Therefore 20% of 50 apples is 10 apples.

 

But THIS IS NOT THE ANSWER sebab soalan ialah ‘How many good apples he has left?

 

 

Dan

Jumlah apple yang tak busuk = Jumlah keseluruhan asal – Jumlah yang rotten

Answer

Number of good apples left = Total number of apples – Number of rotten apples

 

** kita dah kira yg Number of rotten apples = 10

 

SO

Number of good apples left = Total number of apples – Number of rotten apples

 

 

Number of good apples left = 50 – 10

 

= 40 apples

 

Solution to Questions

 

1. Ali just bought some durians at the market and he gives 20 percent of it to his neighbour.Ali’s neighbour received 30 durians from Ali. How many durians did Ali buy?

Analisa soalan:-

 

1. Objek yang ditanya – durians

2. Jumlah keseluruhan yang asal – Not known. Tidak diketahui

3. Percentage of durians given to Ali’s neighbour

Peratusan yang diberi kepada jiran Ali – 20% = 30 durians

i.e. 30 durians = 20% of total durians Ali bought

 

4. Apa yang dicari / ditanya soalan? – How much durians did Ali buy? Berapa banyak durian yang Ali beli?

 

 

Macam mana nak cari ?

 

  1. We know that 30 durians = 20% of total durians Ali bought

2. Kita tahu yang 30 durians = 20% dari jumlah keseluruhan durian yang Ali telah beli

Use the above information to calculate the total number of durians that Ali bought.

 

 

Penyelesaian

 

1. We know that 30 durians = 20% from total

Kita tahu 30 durians = 20% dari jumlah keseluruhan durian yang telah dibeli

 

 

2. Gunakan maklumat itu untuk cari jumlah 100%.
Gunakan formula berikut:-

 

20% —————————— 30 durians

 

100% —————————— how many durians?

 

100 X 30

20

 

 

= 150 durians

 

 

Answer = Ali bought 150 durians.

To double check answer.

20% of the answer must be 30 durians

 

i.e. 20% from 150 must be 30.

 

Check:

 

20 X 150

100

 

= 30 durians.

 

So, the answer 150 durians is correct!

Mengajar menggunakan sukatan pelajaran UPSR/PMR/SPM

Menggunakan sukatan pelajaran membolehkan anda mengetahui dengan jelas apa yang akan dipelajari oleh anak-anak anda sebelum mereka memasuki alam persekolahan lagi ataupun sebelum mereka memasuki tahun persekolahan yang tertentu. Sebagai contoh, jika anak anda baru berusia 4-5 tahun, anda sudah boleh menganalisa sukatan pelajaran sains tahun satu dan gunakannya untuk mengetahui apa yang mereka akan pelajari dalam masa 2-3 tahun nanti. Mungkin ada yang akan berkata, ‘Macam mana pulak kalau sukatan pelajaran berubah nanti?’ Anda tidak perlu bimbang. Walaupun sukatan pelajaran mata pelajaran sains itu mungkin akan berubah dimasa hadapan, pada dasarnya asas-asas sains itu akan kekal dan biasanya sebarang perubahan hanya melibatkan perubahan kecil sahaja.

Dengan memulakan lebih awal, anda telah memberi kelebihan atau ‘head start’ kepada anak anda. Jangan pandang remeh dengan ‘kelebihan’ ini. Ianya akan banyak membantu anak anda untuk:

 

1. Memahami dengan mudah apa yang diajar oleh guru mereka. Ini kerana mereka sudah pun mempelajarinya dengan anda secara langsung atau tidak langsung dengan anda dan mereka sekurang-kurangnya telah memahami sebahagian dari apa yang telah anda ajar.

 

2. Membantu mereka memahami arahan-arahan yang diberi oleh guru mereka.

 

3. Membantu mereka memahami soalan-soalan yang diberi dan kerja-kerja rumah yang diberi.

 

4. Memudahkan mereka berinteraksi dengan yakin dalam kelas.

 

Meningkatkan harga diri mereka dan keyakinan mereka. Ini kerana mereka mudah faham apa yang diajar, boleh berinteraksi dengan baik dan berkemungkinan besar akan mendapat keputusan yang cemerlang dalam mata pelajaran sains.

 

Walaupun mereka dapat menyerap sebahagian sahaja dari apa yang anda ajari, ianya masih lagi merupakan satu kelebihan yang cukup berharga kepada mereka dan mampu membuat mereka bukan sekadar bersaing tapi melebihi rakan-rakan sebaya mereka. Dalam setiap proses pembelajaran itu ada tiga fasa iaitu:

 

  1. Sebelum pelajaran di kelas
  2. Semasa di kelas
  3. Selepas pelajaran di kelas

 

Sebagai ibubapa anda boleh membantu anak-anak anda dalam fasa 1 dan 3. Fasa 1 merupakan fasa yang kritikal jika anda inginkan anak-anak anda mempunyai kelebihan dari segi pemahaman. Dengan mendedahkan mereka kepada apa yang bakal mereka pelajari different kelas nanti ianya akan amat memudahkan mereka nanti bila belajar topik yang sama di kelas nanti. Jika sebelum memasuki kelas mereka telah dapat menyerap 80% dari apa yang anda ajar, maka semasa di kelas nanti mereka cuma perlu menyerap lagi 20% yang mereka belum fahami. Selain daripada itu, untuk 80% yang mereka sudah fahami itu akan mereka ulangkaji bila diajar oleh guru-guru mereka. Fasa ketiga juga merupakan fasa yang penting kerana ianya adalah waktu dimana anak-anak anda mengukuhkan apa yang telah mereka pelajari dalam fasa satu dan dua. Anda boleh membantu dengan menyediakan buku-buku latihan yang sesuai. Dengan memberi mereka banyak latihan anda boleh mengukur sejauh mana pemahaman mereka dengan apa yang telah anda dan guru mereka ajari. Pastikan anda merekod markah latihan-latihan mereka agar anda boleh mengawasi pencapaian mereka dalam setiap topik. Jika ada topik yang mereka agak lemah anda boleh mengajar mereka semula topik itu atau anda boleh mencuba teknik pengajaran lain yang anda rasa boleh memudahkan pemahaman mereka.
