Dear my good friend, Tomoko Ihara of Sendai,Japan,
How are you? I hope you are in a safe condition. It has been such a long time since we last kept in touch. I guess we have been too busy with our own things. The recent tsunami which hit your area is one of those which has made me aware of the importance of KEEPING IN TOUCH. The world and everything around it can wait! Our friends and family are more important!
Sometimes, it's so difficult for me to put aside a few minutes for a friend (and family members) due to the demand of my teaching job in a secondary school. My job is taking away 18-20 hours of my day. There has been moments when I have thought of quitting this demanding job so that I can focus more on matters that are more crucial.
I pray for your safety dear friend.

SMKSR held English Village for 150 students which have been targeted to score A in PMR this year. The English Village was aimed to make students aware of the various techniques that can be employed to assist them in their quest for A.It was hoped that by the end of the day, the students would be able to use all the tips given to do revision on their own at home.
Thanks to Mr Anthony Joseph, Madam Liza Edna and Mr Zahri Efendi for their willingness to share their knowledge with the students. Thanks also to all English teachers of SMKSR and the counselling teachers for their assistants. Last but not least, I would like to thank Mr Norali Subandi for supporting us and willing to officiate the English Village. Your present had been appreciated by all,especially the students. I won't forget my sweet young assistant cum secretary, Miss Norazira Basiran for without her ,the English Village would have not been realised.
To the students, remember that English is the key to knowledge. English is the lingua franca of the world.We,teachers can only guide you but its up to you to put what you have learnt into practice. There is a saying which says, we can bring the horse to the river,but we cannot make it drink.
