Nobel Peace 2014 for Medicine or Physiology

It's the end of the year school holiday and all the ExaMachs had complete their exams be it the original or ulangan.
So I got nothing much to write about ExaMachs and the school (for which is why this time is called a holiday).
I just got a time to surf the net for anything new and since its been a long time I had not look at the Nobel Peace Prize for M/P, I had decided to do it yesterday through my mobile phone.
This year's award for this coveted prize is given to three biochemists
Thomas C. Südhof
Randy W. Schekman
James E Rothman
for their work in transport system via vesicles in the cell (would be interesting to those taking biology in the first semester).
Click this http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/medicine/laureates/2013/ for the Nobel Peace Prize page
Click this linkhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijVcneiNlHA for the video on the lectures given by the three scientists.. it is inspiring to watch if you inspired to be a scientist.

Sports Day

Hot and very hot in the morning, as usual for Sports Day in Jit Sin and yesterday evening was a heavy storm. Luckily the field is condusive for the event.
I am a Field Referee for a change this year so I get to go round the field doing nothing. All the field events end by the break time at 10:00 so I sort of free already after that. Anyway this year sports Day ended at 11:30 and I left the school at 12:00 noon.
Run, jump and it is so so hot

Can Teen Day?

Can or Can't Teen do business leh? Well, with the whole school presence (suspected because of cocuricullum marks and also the coupons) the whole canteen is crowded with teachers and students buying food (quality wise okay lo) by 8:30 am.

Teachers are allowed to wear casual T-shirts and students in their school T shirts can be see queuing up to play 'games'. I had always wonder what game is so nice to play in a dark classroom.

The day ends with the lucky draw which I as usual do not get. The students were dismissed at 12:00 but the teachers still had to go back at 1:20 pm.

Becoming a referee in the Sukan Saringan Day 2.. it is real hot this afternoon/evening must be above 32 C. Pity the ExaMachs had to run 2 rounds and throw the shot putts.

Overheated to the limit .. too bright for my iPhone to take the picture
