Enjoying English At SMK Sultan Mansor (SMKSM)

18 07 2009

Last Thursday I went to SMKSM for Enjoying English program.

SMKSM means Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Sultan Mansor.

I read the Swine Flu article from my blog.

Now swine flu is known as Influenza A (H1N1).

ali-SMKSM2

I met my father’s friend, Teacher Yasmin at the school.

Teacher Yasmin was my father’s schoolmate.

They used to study in Sultan Sulaiman Secondary School.

Now Teacher Yasmin is an English teacher at SMKSM.

I always enjoyed participating in the program because I like giving speeches.

Before we end the program my sisters and I sang the Khalifah song and Guantanamera.

A(H1N1) :School In KL Closed

22 06 2009

When it first started Influenza A(H1N1) was known as swine flu.

Three students from SJK(C) Jalan Davidson at Jalan Hang Jebat were sicken by the flu.

The school has been closed for 1 week.

The first student got the flu after a holiday in Melbourne, Australia.

Then two classmates got the virus from their classmate who was sicken by the flu.

They were the 49th and 50th cases in Malaysia.

That was called local transmissions.

Local transmission of A(H1N1) virus means someone get the A(H1N1) virus from another person in Malaysia.

2100 students and staffs of the school had been home quarantined.

That means they must stay at home and they cannot visit public and crowded places.

We can try to avoid Influenza A(H1N1) by:

  1. Avoid being in crowded places for example zoos, shopping malls, hospitals, cinemas and parks.

  2. Wash your hands carefully using anti bacteria soap for example Dettol, Protex, Lifebouy and Antabax.

  3. Cover your mouth when sneezing or coughing .

  4. Wear a mask  to cover your nose and mouth.

  5. Take vitamin C and garlic to fight germs.

  6. Take lots of water, fruit juice, tea and herb tea.

The Malaysian government is working hard to avoid the spreading of Influenza A(H1N1) virus in Malaysia.

KUALA LUMPUR: SJK (C) Jalan Davidson at Jalan Hang Jebat here has been closed for a week after two local transmissions of the influenza A(H1N1) virus were detected in the school.

Two other schools with infected students – SRK Assunta 2 in Petaling Jaya and SM Section 9 Shah Alam – will also be closed if authorities discover local transmission of the virus there.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said eight cases of the virus were confirmed yesterday, including five schoolchildren – an 11-year-old from SRK Assunta 2, a 16-year-old from SM Shah Alam, and three at Class 5 I of SJK(C) Jalan Davidson.

He said all 2,100 students and staff members of SJK(C) Jalan Davidson had been home quarantined, after the National Security Council chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin agreed to close the school until Friday.





A Moment With English At SMK Tengku Mahmud 2

17 06 2009

Ali-SMKTgMahmudI went to Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Tengku Mahmud 2 for ‘A Moment With English’ program on Tuesday, June 16, 2009.

The school was a big secondary school in Besut, Terengganu.

I read the article about Swine Flu (but now it is called Influenza A H1N1) which I wrote when it first started in Mexico.

I met Kak Athirah and a lot of  other kakaks,  abangs  and teachers there.

I enjoyed ‘A Moment With English’ at the school.

I also enjoyed the ‘mee soup’ at the school.

It was tasty but very hot.

16062009(116)On the way back, I stopped at the Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium that collapsed a few weeks ago.

I also stopped at Pantai Bari.

In English Pantai Bari is Bari Beach.

I had keropok lekor, coconut drink and watched lots of goats drinking left over coconut drink from the coconut shells.

I love to go to Besut and I wish to go there again soon.

skph-audience

I read an article from my blog entitled the Swine Flu.

My big sister Kaman gave a speech about “The Creation Of Universe”.

Kaman also did a book reading.

She read ‘Budu Spell’ from a book ‘Growing Up In Terengganu’ by Awang Goneng.

My big sister Kashah did a story telling about a girl named Jannah.

My big sister Kafah sang a song about butterfly.ali-khalifahsong-skph

We sang two songs.

First was the ‘Khalifah Song’ and the next song was ‘Guantanamera‘.

The ‘Khalifah Song’ is an English song.

Guantanamera’ is a patriotic Spanish song from Cuba.

After the program we ate fried noodle keropok lekor.

The keropok lekor was tasty but the noodle was too spicy.

I met a lot of kakak and abang in SKPH and a lot of teachers too for example the Head Master and Teacher Siti.

All of them were very nice and I enjoyed visiting the school.ali-receive-cert-skph

I am very happy because Kak Syaza and Abang Kimi wrote comments in my blog 😉

I think there will be more programs in SKPH.

I love going to SKPH!

Flu Songs

30 04 2009

I wrote 2 posts about swine flu.

And my mother told me about the flu songs.

I checked the Google to know more about the songs.

First song:

Ring around the rosy,

A pocket full of  posies,

Ashes, ashes,

We all fall down.

This rhyme is about the signs of plague especially the Black Death in Europe in the 1940s or  to the Great Plague of London in 1665/6.

Second song:

I had a little bird,

It’s name was Enza,

I opened the window,

And in-flu-enza.

This rhyme relates to Influenza Pandemic of 1918.

This pandemic killed 20 to 40 million people.

It was the worst pandemic recorded in the world.

I hope the swine flu won’t become a pandemic and stop spreading to other countries.





World Closer To Swine Flu Pandemic

29 04 2009

More people were infected by swine flu.

Swine flu virus has killed 149 people in Mexico.

Children cannot go to school or play outside.

wwwreuterscom

They have to wear masks.

There is more swine flu cases in the U.S.A. and Europe.

40 people were infected by swine flu in the U.S.A.

A man from Spain who visited Mexico also get swine flu.

The WHO fear that the swine flu will become a pandemic soon.

The last flu pandemic was ‘Hong Kong flu’ in 1968.

‘Hong Kong flu’ killed about 1 million  people.

I think Uncle Nisar (in Palo Alto, CA), Uncle Arif (Columbus, OH) and Uncle Mahboob (LA, CA) must be careful and read my blog so that they’ll know how to avoid swine flu.

Swine Flu

27 04 2009

Swine flu outbreak started in Mexico.

In Mexico more than 81 people died and more than 100 people were sickened by the flu.

All schools are closed in Mexico City and some other places in Mexico.

In the US at least 11 people had swine flu so far.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) fear that more people will get the flu and cause a pandemic around the world.

Swine flu pandemic can kill millions of people.

A pandemic is a disaster.

The virus that causes the flu is a mix of human, pig and bird viruses.

Some signs of swine flu are high fever, body aches, coughing, sore throat, vomiting and diarrhoea.

We can try to avoid swine flu by :

  1. Avoid being in crowded places for example shopping malls and zoos.

  2. Wash your hands carefully using anti-bacteria soap.

  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth because this is how germs get into our body.

  4. Cover your mouth when sneezing or coughing.

  5. Wear a mask to cover your nose and mouth.

  6. Take vitamin C and garlic to fight germs.

  7. Take lots of water, fruit juice, tea and herb tea.

CNN) — Mexican officials are asking citizens to avoid large crowds, refrain from kissing as a greeting and maintain a distance of at least 1.8 meters (six feet) from each other amid growing concern in the country and elsewhere over new cases of suspected and confirmed swine flu infection.

Several countries issued travel notices and tightened restrictions to brace against the virus the World Health Organization is calling “a public health emergency of international concern.”

By Sunday, 81 deaths had been deemed “likely linked” to a deadly new strain of the virus by health authorities in Mexico. Viral testing has confirmed 20 cases, said Dr. Jose A. Cordova Villalobos, Mexico’s health secretary. In the United States, the number of confirmed swine flu cases stood at 11.

In New Zealand, officials said 22 students and three teachers, who returned from a three-week-long language trip to Mexico, may have been infected with the virus.

The 25 students and teachers at Auckland’s Rangitoto College returned to New Zealand via Los Angeles on Saturday.

Fourteen have shown flu-like symptoms, with four “more unwell than others,” said Dr. Julia Peters, clinical director of Auckland Regional Public Health Service.

Health Minister Tony Ryall said 10 students tested positive for influenza A. The specimens will be sent to WHO to determine whether it is H1N1 swine influenza. H1N1 influenza is a subset of influenza A.

The WHO results are expected back by midweek. The group remains quarantined at home.
