2nd May of the Month 2018

Yesterday son has got tuition after send him to tuition we headed to breakfast. After parking at the apartment I spotted a dead cat on the other side of the road which is next to the car. It's a full grown cat which has many flies around it, the body of the cat has bloated too. 1st day of May and that's what I saw, seem not a good sign at all.

Today is second day of May and last night after drinking the sup kambing I had ice cream in the night. Sad to say that I didn't feel well in the night and went to purging every hour, also feeling like want to vomit but not able.

This morning I had medicine before heading to the event which I have rvsped. Kind of feel bad if I didn't show up as have rvsped. Lucky I didn't feel the urge to go toilet in the LRT ride. 14 stops in total to reach the destination and its 35 minutes ride.

I had light meal as I cannot take any oily or dairy products. I also didn't take any fruits. My friend offered me a bottle of fruit juice I didn't take it as I scare I am going to throw up after drinking it. The parking at Aloft Hotel is RM10 for event attended at the hotel. Three of my friends parked their car there in the hotel.

Then I receive a call from volunteer in school that my youngest has been left in school as nobody pick him up. The aunt rider suppose to fetch him home, she has forgot of it and thought she was suppose to fetch my eldest. Lucky that I called home and sis-in-law said that nephew is home is able to fetch him. Nephew didn't have any class in the afternoon, if he has surely he cannot make it to fetch him and I would be 25 minutes or 35 minutes away to fetch him.

FROGASIA’S LEAPS OF KNOWLEDGE CONFERENCE 2018

Teachers enjoying their time at the Leaps of Knowledge Conference's workshop.
 The Leaps of Knowledge Conference 2018 presented by FrogAsia Sdn Bhd with the support of the YTL Foundation saw more than 1,000 educators, parents, students and members of the education sector gathering to elevate 21st Century education in Malaysia. Held at the JW Marriott Hotel Kuala Lumpur, this year’s conference aimed to inspire, equip and empower Malaysians to collaboratively and collectively do more to raise the bar in education.


The Leaps of Knowledge Conference 2018 – themed Level Up!, centred around the commitment of the community of educators, parents and individuals to continue leveraging on the foundations built over the last six years, levelling the playing field across all schools in Malaysia through technology. This year’s conference explored how the community can work together to raise the bar by celebrating each other’s successes, learning from each other and collaborating on new ideas to increase outcomes for 21st Century learners.


“At FrogAsia, we believe in a world where everyone loves learning and where technology removes boundaries. With technology, there is equal access to quality education regardless of location or background. By bridging the digital divide, the education divide is also bridged at the same time. After six years of driving 21st Century education in Malaysia, we have seen the huge difference that Frog is making in the Malaysian education system. Schools from across the country can collaborate and support one another, and student progress can be monitored and tracked to help them improve. Today, we are gathering educators, students, parents and other members of the education community to join forces to raise the bar further and make 21st Century learning even more accessible and empowering,” said Lou Yeoh, Executive Director of FrogAsia Sdn Bhd.


At the conference, FrogAsia launched its inaugural FrogPlay World Championship, a competition that aims to encourage students around the world to collaborate and optimise the use of the FrogPlay gamified learning and revision application on the Frog Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). FrogPlay, available online on the Frog VLE and on the Google Play Store, motivates students to learn and progress by doing revision using gamification. Thousands of quizzes are available for the students’ revision, including quizzes from trusted education partner Pelangi Publishing Group, teachers and the Ministry of Education. FrogPlay also provides detailed reports to help parents and teachers help their child and classroom of students perform better.


Since its launch last year, students have clocked over 1.5 million revision hours on FrogPlay. By tracking the hours spent on FrogPlay and the progress of students, FrogAsia saw evidence that revising via the gamified-learning app resulted in an improvement in student performance across all subjects for both primary and secondary schools. For example, students who used FrogPlay for physics revision are observed to have increased their average scores by up to 29% points

Lou added: “We were so excited to see the impact of FrogPlay last year, which was driven by the FrogPlay Championship. The competition was successful in encouraging students to proactively learn and revise on FrogPlay even after the competition ended which led to an improvement in their academic performance. We believe in providing Malaysian students with exposure to the best education possible and equipping these students to be globally competitive. This is why we are taking the FrogPlay Championship to the global stage, where students in Malaysia will get to compete with students from all around the world including schools in the United Kingdom, Australia, Denmark, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland and the United States of America.”


The conference featured Shaheen Mistri, Founder of Akansha and CEO of Teach for India who spoke on her belief that educators and students are partners in building education in a nation, and encouraged collective impact through the contribution of all in the community. Through her talk, she called upon the participants to evaluate the tools they already possess and to use them effectively to raise the bar in education in Malaysia, which will set a standard and be a role model for the world.

Programme Director of YTL Foundation, Datin Kathleen Chew was also one of the featured keynote speakers. She spoke on the impact and success stories that were the result of the collaboration between YTL Foundation, FrogAsia and the Ministry of Education. “It is evident that change has taken place and that technology has made a huge impact to education in Malaysia. We are so glad to be partners with changemakers in this country and will continue to contribute to this initiative that aims to inspire and upskill learners nationwide.”


After her speech, Datin Kathleen invited three teachers from schools that benefited significantly through the various initiatives like the Frog Classroom Programme, 1BestariNet Teacher Award and FrogPlay Championship. These three teachers were the Headmistress of SK Kayang Noridah Hamdan, 2nd runner up of the 1BestariNet Teacher Award 2017 Mohamad Jalil, and Chew Soo Lee, Frog Admin of SJK(C) Choon Cheng, School Winner of FrogPlay Championship 2017.

Leaps of Knowledge is sponsored by YTL Foundation, also a key partner in the Frog Classroom Programme where they, together with the Ministry of Education, contribute to building 21st century learning spaces for schools. YTL Foundation had recently contributed a sum of RM1.5 million together with the Ministry to provide 21st century education infrastructure to 50 Tamil schools nationwide.

During the workshops, the participants gained deeper understanding of higher order thinking skills and how educators can incorporate them into teaching and learning. There were also gamified experience workshops that introduced the new features of the Frog VLE to parents and teachers to demonstrate the capability of such technology when implemented in today’s education system.

Missed the Chance to Share the Love? Think Again!


Chinese Valentine’s Day – Chap Goh Meh – presents another chance to celebrate love

In the first twist of fate of 2018, couples agonised as the ever-anticipated Valentine’s Day coincided with Chinese New Year preparations – causing plans to derail, be pushed forward and time to run out. This may be a blessing in disguise as the opportunity to plan for the most romantic getaway or dinner presents itself through Chinese Valentine’s Day – Chap Goh Meh!


Long ago, single Chinese women were confined to their houses, and Chap Goh Meh was the only day of the year that they were allowed to go out. To hasten the process of finding a life partner, these women would gather by the river and throw oranges. This rite of passage was a way for them to seek the deities’ blessings to be bestowed with a good man. Over the years, Chap Goh Meh has evolved to become a day to celebrate love – a second Valentine’s Day, in a way.


Whether you know your partner best or a potential new love is about to spring, this fun and quirky quiz will point you in the direction to truly wow them this Chap Goh Meh. Let the ideas flow, as you find out what kind of romantics you – and your partner – are.

Got your results? How about checking out our gift ideas below?

The Practical Lovebird

When there is a purpose, there is a reason to do it. If you are the type of person who finds purpose behind everything and favours rationale over emotion, then you are a practical lovebird. For you, there are a multitude of ways to show your emotions, but logic is your bread and butter.

Whether it’s setting the date for a pamper session at a salon for your significant other, or a full body massage to relieve stress from a work week, there is always something out there to show that you care. These are two great ways to spend some quality time, relaxing.

If that’s not your cup of tea, you can always try a scrumptious buffet at a hotel, the limitless selection will leave you and your partner spoilt for choice, but hey, at least you’re spoilt for choice together.




The Passionate Partner

More passion than a passion fruit. You enjoy doing things with your significant other, capturing moments and showing them off. After all, what screams passion than showing off your perfect relationship. Whether it’s spending time at home, visiting a new café, or going to the movies, it’s a must to do it with your loved one. Because you enjoy your time together so much, you’d want time to slow down and maybe even come to a stop.


It’s probably a safe bet to say that you’ve taken tons of photos together and would love to print some of them. A photobook is a great solution, and what’s more it’s customisable, so you can add some personal touches to it.

If you prefer a little more hands-on approach, you could get an instant camera and compile all your photos in the bundled album, or even start your own scrapbook!


The Starry-eyed Adventurer

There is no corner you will leave unexplored. You are adventurous. From rock-climbing to eating creepy-crawlies, anything that has an adventurous spin, you’re doing it. Better yet, you’re not doing it alone! There’s nothing better than creating new memories with the one you love, so you often embark on random road trips and both planned and unplanned holidays. You love to see new places and meet new faces, all with the company of your significant other.


The more a couple does things together, the stronger the relationship, so why not tackle District 21 together? With 10 adventure attractions to choose from, there’s bound to be something the both of you can enjoy.


What if you have a close group of friends and you’d like to show some family love? Well, how about something that can involve more than just couples – something like Bubble Sports.


If your significant other enjoys something a little more tranquil, and you both enjoy the outdoors, you could opt for a hiking trip in Cameron Highlands, where you can greet the morning sun.



The Hopeless Romantic

Go “all in”, it’s all or nothing. Putting your heart, soul, mind and finances to the test, is the ultimate way you show you care. From planning every intricate detail to splurging on the biggest teddy, you are the hopeless romantic. Charming, confident and not afraid to express your feelings pretty much sums up who you are. You’re someone who isn’t shy to say how much you love your partner each and every single day of the year.



Taking a trip to Langkawi is a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of your daily lives, but for an unforgettable experience, you could go on a sunset cruise on a yacht. Cool breeze in your hair, a cold drink in your hand and your loved one in the other. That’s pretty romantic.
