Looking for scholarships?

It's time looking for scholarships now in newspaper whether you are STPM or SPM leavers.
Came across recently a few from NUS, Genting, Star Publications and colleges(get newspaper).
Get ready necessary documents as needed especially letters of recommendation from your teachers(refer to the requirement in the scholarships advertisement).
This is time to:
Make up your mind what you really want to be or pursued. 
Open up more options and not stick to one and only dream.
Listen to some of the talk according to your options as to get some ideas what to know and need to do.
Get information from the counter with the courses you wish to pursue as you will expose to all types of options, the financial needed, what you will encounter and how long, rather than just waiting hopefully to get the scholarships alone which might disappoint depending much on the very extremely super results obtained.
The information will be very helpful even if you are offer scholarship to do it as you will know what to encounter?(visit the big education fair such as in PISA and KL for more info and focus or will be confused)
But beware of:
The promises some made which have hidden agenda;
How good everything seemed to be but actually not;
What your parents thinking and ability or suggestions;
Follow your interest and not your friends, it's time to fly separately towards your dreams and not stick to your friends' dream instead;
Always remember:
There are lots of options out there and this is one of the important decisions you need to make to be what you wanted to be in future, so think carefully and patiently;
What you have learn might not be what you will be later.
You will be enjoying what you like to learn than forcing to learn something you don't like.
Even if you did, you can always change, just needed more time than others(never too old to learn).
Your parents might or might not involved but you are really lucky if they did.  It's alright if they are not as you can always join others as another option.
There was a saying:
Roads are created by man, never give up trying easily.
Guess it's another part of our lives needed to go through!
Best Wishes!
