Read the article below carefully and then complete the chart.
Your body is a powerful machine. It is capable of doing all sorts of things by itself. But one thing
it cannot do is make vitamins. Your body however is able to get the vitamins it needs from the foods
you eat because different foods contain different vitamins. The key is to eat different foods to get an
assortment of vitamins.
Vitamin A plays a really big part in eyesight. It is great for night vision. Vitamin A helps you see in
colour, too, from the brightest yellow to the darkest purple. In addition, it helps you grow properly and
aids in healthy skin.
There is more than one B vitamin. The B vitamins are important in metabolic which means that
they help make energy and set it free when your body needs it. This group of vitamins is also involved
in making red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout your body. Every part of your body needs
oxygen to work properly, so these B vitamins have a really important job.
Vitamin C is important for keeping body tissues, such as gums and muscles in good shape. This
vitamin is also important if you get a cut or wound because it helps you heal. Vitamin C also helps
your body resist infection. This means that even though you cannot always avoid getting sick, vitamin
C makes it a little harder for your body to become infected with an illness.
You need vitamin D in order to have strong bones. It is also great for forming strong teeth. Vitamin
D even lends a hand to an important mineral which is calcium. It helps your body absorb the amount
of calcium it needs.

Two Nabbed for Snatching in Public


Shah Alam, Sun. Two teenagers thought they were quick enough to escape after
snatching a handbag from a woman near a busy parking lot. The thieves who were on a
motorcycle rode past the woman and the pillion passenger snatched the bag as the woman
was trying to look for her keys. When the woman shouted for help, two men nearby who
witnessed the incident bravely pushed and kicked the motorcycle as it passed them.
The motorcyclist lost control of his vehicle and fell down. They were quickly surrounded
by other people and had no chance to run away. The bag was returned to the victim and
she was very grateful to those who had helped her.
The two were handed to the policemen patrolling the area and taken to the police
station. A spokesman for the police confirmed the incident and thanked the public for
their cooperation in helping to fight crime. He also advised all women to be extra careful
with their bags and valuables. If possible try not to travel alone as they will be the target
of these snatch thieves.

Malaysians celebrate its Independence Day on 31st August every year. It is a day to

officially free from the British. It is a public holiday for the nation so the citizens can take
this opportunity to go to Dataran Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur. This is where the celebration
usually takes place. People can also watch the celebration on television as there is a live
telecast of the programme.
The celebration usually kicks off after the arrival of the Yang Dipertuan Agong and Raja
Permaisuri Agong. Other dignitaries include the Prime Minister, his wife and other cabinet
Ministers. There are many different segments of the parades which involve the participation
of a number of people. The participants are from all walks of the countrys multiethnic society
including school children, teachers, soldiers, government and private sector employees,
sports personalities and even artistes. Normally they gather there early in the morning
to prepare for the annual occasion. There are also beautiful floats, usually decorated with
colourful flowers.
There is a massive crowd lining on both sides of the road where the parades pass by.
They applaud and wave to the participants as to show their support. The participants of
the parades symbolise the strong unity and harmony of the country. It is indeed a grand
celebration to mark the day.

Read the article below carefully and answer the following questions.


School gardens can provide an environment in which students can learn to work with
each other and in groups. Maintaining a school garden helps students to be more responsible
and knowledgeable.

Before starting a garden, a garden committee must be formed. The committee members
will be responsible for the garden work, finding funds to support the garden, scheduling
activities, researching and distributing information. This will enable students to learn to
cooperate with each other like the saying goes many hands make light work. Do not forget to
consult your school gardener when you have any doubts.

Next is the big task of finding a suitable spot for your school garden. Your garden site
should be in an area that receives plenty of sunlight. It must have good drainage so it should
be in close proximity to water. The site should be easily accessible to students, volunteers, and
teachers. Start small because maintaining a large garden will use up all of your time and
energy. Thus it is advisable to select a relatively small area.

Now, you have to decide what you want to plant in your garden. Do you want
to plant only flowers? If so what kind of flowers do you want to choose? Plant flowers
that are easy to grow and easy to take care. These plants should be ones that flower
throughout the year. It will be a good idea to have a plot for vegetables as well.

Cities are getting more and more crowded each day. One of the effects of crowded cities
is air pollution. Air pollution is increased because of four developments which are more traffic,
growing cities, rapid economic development, and industrialisation.

It is evident that there are more vehicles on the road now. Motor vehicles are a major
source of air pollution. Emissions from cars and trucks contribute to global warming as well
as causing acute health problems. To reduce our direct impact upon the planet, we can choose
alternative modes of transportation.

Whenever possible, those driving to work can carpool. Besides this, we can also take
public transport like buses and trains. In this way, we can do our part to reduce air pollution.

Read the passage and complete the details about Zhang Dao.

Zhang Dao was almost ten years old in 2001 when her mother left her and her paralysed
father. Living in poverty while taking care of her husband had taken a toll on her mother. She
had nothing. She just could not take it anymore. Hence, Zhang Dao who was left with her father
took over the heavy responsibility to take care of the family.
She coped with all the house chores and dealt with her fathers needs before walking to
school. On her way, she collected leaves and shoots to be eaten so she would not feel hungry. She
did not want to quit school as she wanted to study. After school, she worked to earn some money
that enabled her to buy food, medicine for her father and books.
Obviously, Zhang Dao was an intelligent girl and strong physically and mentally. Despite
all the difficulties and hard work, she managed to survive. Without her knowledge, her effort
and sacrifices for her father was noticed by the authority in the province of Nanqing, where she
lived. In January 2005, Zhang Dao was one of the recipients of the Inspirational Individual award.
It was a touching moment when she was asked what she wanted as a present. Zhang Dao only
wished for her mother to come back.
At fifteen, after five years without her mother, Zhang Dao still has a heart to forgive what her
mother had done to her. Instead of hatred, she still yearned for her mothers love and had chosen
it over money or other material things offered to her.

Hi Tech park,

Kedah.
2nd March 201_.

How are you, son? How is the weather? I hope you are in the
pink of health and able to adjust to your new surroundings.
Everyone here is fine.

Since this is the first time you travel and study overseas,
I am giving you a little piece of advice. Try to adapt to the
local culture which you think is good. Study hard and make us
proud of your achievement. Good results mean better chances
for employment in the future. You may want to work in London
to gain knowledge and experience but I do not quite agree to
that. You have to return home after you have graduated. Serve
your country, son. But if you choose the opposite, I will still
support your decision.

For your information, we plan to go there in May. So, for
the moment, we shall always pray for you and your success.
See you then.

Love,

Mom

One day when I and Fareed were on our way home, we
saw a boy sitting by the roadside. He was crying and holding
his knee. We approached the boy and noticed that his knee
was bleeding. He fell from his bicycle. Fareed poured some
water from his water bottle on to the wound. Then, I took out
a clean handkerchief and tied it tightly around the wound. The
boy thanked us for our help. He told us that he could walk
home slowly.

Healthy eating is very important to have a good life. Most
of the time, we get ill because we eat wrongly. Here are some
tips on how to eat healthily.

First of all we must eat nutritious food. We must make
sure that our diet consists of adequate proteins, vitamins and
carbohydrates.

We must drink lots of fresh water. Water helps to keep our
body cool and also helps to flush out toxins. Fruit juices like
fresh orange juice or carrot juice are very good for health. So,
we can alternate fresh water with fresh fruit juices.

Though fast food is very popular and easily available,
eating at home will keep us healthy. Home-cooked food is
clean and fresh ingredients are used.

Dearest Mom,
Thanks a lot for your letter. I really miss you, dad and
everyone at home. I miss the food too especially your cooking.
At the moment Im still adapting to the new place, food, and
environment. Do not worry about me because Malaysian
students here take care of each other.

Please do not worry, Mom, as I have no intention to work
in London. I love Malaysia very much and I shall return after I
have finished my study here.

I am glad that you are coming for a holiday here. I will
take you around London for sight-seeing. We can go shopping
and visit all the interesting places. Please inform me the date
when you have confirmed.

I have to stop writing now. Please send my regards to all.
Goodbye, I will write again.
Your loving son,
Aiman

Dorm 2A1,
Blok Cendana,
MRSM Lenggong,
33400 Lenggong, Perak.
12th Feb 201_

Dear Lili,
How are you and your new school? I am still adjusting
myself to my new school and hostel life although I have been
here for almost a month. Time really flies as I am always busy
with so many things to do. I hope you are adapting well to your
new school.

Firstly let me tell you something about my school. There
are eight girls staying in my dormitory. They come from Perak,
Kedah, Penang and Selangor. Aini is my classmate and also
my dorm mate. I need to be disciplined to survive staying here.
Everything has to be done according to the hostel rules. We
have to switch off the light by 11.30 p.m. and everyone has to
be in bed. The prefects will check each dorm to ensure that no
one is still walking around at that time.

There are only 24 students in my class who come from
all over Malaysia. Some of them are really talkative and there
are a few very quiet ones. However, we do not have much
problem in doing group work. All of us cooperate in doing our
work. We were able to decorate the class in just three days.
The teachers are friendly and helpful too. I can meet any of
them if I do not understand a lesson.

I think I shall stop writing because I still have some
homework to do. Please write to tell me about your new
school. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon. Good
bye for now.
Your friend,
Wirda

My name is Anand s/o Veerasingham. I am 13 years old.
I go to SMK Taman Matahari. I live in Georgetown in the state
of Penang. I live in a single storey house with my parents and
two younger twin sisters. Both my parents are teachers. My
father teaches mathematics in my school while my mother
teaches in a primary school. My twin sisters who are two years
younger than me are very different from each other. Sushila is
outgoing and a tomboy while Saradha is quiet and feminine.
They are very close to each other.

My hobbies are sketching and singing. I sometimes go to
the park near my house and sketch the scenery. My family has
a karaoke set at home. We usually take turns singing together
on weekend nights.

I enjoy playing basketball. I am in my school basketball
team. We practise every Tuesday and Thursday. I also enjoy
playing tennis. I usually play tennis with my father every
Sunday afternoon.

I have to sign off now. Hope to hear from you soon.
Goodbye and take care.
