Star Walk havoc-The Penang StarWalk 2009 -"How they Cheat?"

It is almost year end and Christmas is just around the corner.

There are two runs remain.  One is the Jusco charity run today 12/12/09 and Valdor run 19/12/09 in Penang only.
As for walking, Starwalk will be the grand one every year.
Some of them take part because of health, some due to the paper given and etc.  Whatever reasons, the events will go on as there are more reasons for it.

As for the organizers and the volunteers, it is not an easy job to keep everybody happy as there are some of them who would try to cheat every year.  Maybe it is just for the prizes or being thought by someone who is immoral, or may be they could not win if not by cheating. 

I had seen so many cheating going on.  For example, in StarWalk Penang which was much regretted to say it.  You will see that some of the top three, whether they are girls, boys, women or men who dare not take part in the stadium as they can't walk really fast, but they won in the StarWalk.  They can only run when the official judges are not there and walk only when the official judges looking at them.  You can even hear some of the good ones shouting to the immoral ones, "hey, don't run, you are suppose to walk, don't cheat!".

Please, for goodness sake, the parents, coaches and most of all the runners out there, do something right.  Teach your athletes and children not to cheat in the runs, not just for the prizes.  It is a sin to cheat and take away the prizes that don't belong to you at all.  You also hurt someone who are really walking the right way and who should be taking the trophies.

The trophies you won only remind you what you have done, "Cheating!" every time you look at it.  Do you feel very proud and happy with the prizes that you won and do you really enjoy?  There are someone out there that deserve all the prizes that you won and not you.

Hopefully, this year 2009, and tomorrow, less cheating will be seen.  Hopefully, the official judges will be able to do their job honestly and caught only the ones who runs and not the ones who really walk!
When are they going to learn that winning honestly should be only important lesson and not the prizes or trophies.

SPM havoc

What is wrong nowadays?
Everything seemed to be in the dark.  Politics?  Education?

How many papers should be sitting and which to be counted for SPM or for scholarships?

This is the most annoying question since the last time when they mentioned students will need to sit for 10 papers only.
When everyone was happy and believed that the students no longer will suffer to sit for as many papers with the intention to obtain scholarships or being pick for certain courses, this issue went further in the dark.

Please, for goodness shake, plan and think properly before saying anything.

When the news of 10 subjects announced, many or may be all of the students who attended tuition for extra subjects stopped immediately.  That was in the early of the year, now is the end of the year and again arise the issue of certain subjects not counted.  What do you think the students will feel?  Panic, anxious of course as a year already over.  What do you think the students plan to do?  To take up the subjects that they had dropped once and learn in a year just because of some bad decision making earlier.

Pity the students who are in the middle of the changes.
What can they do?  Nothing, just waiting for the fate to be twisted again.
My girl asked again the same question since she asked the first time in standard 5, "Why are we always the guinea pigs ?".

When all this will end?  Hopefully we will wait for another month?  Or may be earlier, that is all we can do. 
Hopefully all this will end well. Hopefully I hope not to hear from my girls that "Why can't they fixed properly and why we are the one again to bear the changes?" "Can't I sit peacefully for the exams whenever is my turn?
