10:20 am - Between Heart And Mind
For all the visitors of LiveJournal (GamePlan), I have a story or a conversation (between Heart and Mind) for use to share and think. In this story it show how Heart is hurt and broke by the love in the world. How Heart keeps thinking to solve the questions that she doesnt even know the answers and until now Heart is still thinking and thinking and thinking though there are no single answer for her questions. For Mindshe know that Heart will never stop thinking. Although sometimes Mind is tired with all Hearts questions but she know that Heart is actually a kind, patient, strong and loving person.

The story begins..
Dalam jiwa hati berkata, Mengapakah diri aku begini? Aku dibelenggu perasaan sendiri dan menjadi tidak keruan menjalani hari-hari mendatang.

Minda membantu menyelesaikan belenggu di hati dengan memberikan cadangannya, Jangan diturutkan kata hati, nanti merana diri mu sendiri.

Hati sukar menerima apa yang dikatakan oleh minda kerana semua yang terjadi bukan kehendak dan kerelaannya. Lalu hati berkata lagi, Aku juga tidak mengerti mengapa aku harus begini

Hati berfikir, Mengapakah terlalu sukar bagi aku menggelakkan segalanya terjadi? Adakah diri ini tersalah langkah lagi?
Sekali lagi persoalan di hati masih tidak terjawab.

Lalu hati terus menerus bertanyakan kepada dirinya sendiri, Mungkinkah diri ini akan terluka lagi buat sekian kalinya? Dan berapakah harga sebuah kelukaan itu? Mungkinkah ianya bernilai seumur hidup seorang insan?
Buat sekian kalinya hati mengeluarkan persoalan yang bertubi-tubi tanpa menunggu jawapan yang sememangnya tidak diketahuinya.

Kali ini minda hanya mendengar saja luahan hati kerana dia sendiri tidak dapat memikirkan jawapan terhadap soalan yang dikemukan oleh hati. Yang pasti kali ini minda dapat merasakan bahawa hati telah benar-benar terluka dengan hidupnya. Minda sedar bahawa segala kasih sayang yang dihulurkan oleh hati selama hidupnya bagai tidak berharga walau sesen pun. Balasan kasih sayang yang hati perolehi selama ini tidak setimpal dengan apa yang diberi. Sebenarnya hati bukanlah terlalu mengharap balasan dari kasih sayang yang diberikan tetapi hati sekadar mahu kehadirannya disedari dan dirinya dihargai. Keadaan hati semakin retak dan minda tidak pasti bagaimana harus dia membantu hati. Minda kini semakin penat dan pening memikirkan keadaan hati yang telah terluka itu

Now for all my friends (including Mr.G if you still reading all the entries), please give some suggestion to Mind for her to help Heart. Help Mind to solve Hearts problems or you can even give Heart all the answer to her questions. Im sure Heart will be glad.

Anyway thank you for reading this entry from Mind and Heart and also from me the writer of the entry.

1:03 pm - Hello Everybody!
Hi,everyone! It's been a long time I didn't visit this journal. SO how's life Mr.G? I Wanie told me that there is no one visited this journal anymore. What happen? She keep reminding me to write something in here when I surf internet. Well, here I am......
I have a story for all the readers of this journal.....Today my friends and I went to the library to find some reference for my assignments but poor us the things that we want to find are not there. Finally I decided to find some novels for me to read....during my free time though you know......now I'm in final sem...and doing my PSM....Before we went out from the library my friends decided to surf the GeoWeb(Library new system and it's the same with InFolan) to find some books. Want to know what happen?We have to wait sooooooooo long!And once again poor me that I have to wait this Chinese guy finish using the computer nearly 1 hour. This man was really testing my patient during this fasting month you know. Nasib baik la I tak mengamuk kat situ jugak!My mind keep thinking don't this guy have thinking that the computer is for everybody to use not just for him?And want to know something? Until tghe time I want to go out from the library... the guy still sitting infront of the same computer and ignoring that there are stil a lot of other students also want to use the PC.
Well, for me I think we should teach this typr of student properly......like.....emmm...you know the negative way..(jahatnyer!) so that they will realize that the facilities is just not for him only. Or to be more comfortable for them....they should bring their own computer to the library and link it with the GeoWeb system....ha.....baru la dapat pakai benda tu seumur hidup!
So that's all from me.....Selamat Berpuasa and Selamat Hari Raya to everybody and specially to Mr.G.HOpefully this journal will live forever.......
See you soon......
Babai!Jamata

2:56 pm - Vocabulary Game - Playing Words
Language game is one of the interesting activities that can be conducted in language class and it help to enhance learning in many ways. In this literature review, I will discuss the game that I implemented for Game 1 activity. The game is called Playing Words. To start the game, the students in the class have to be divided into 2 groups. The member of the group is within 15-20 students and it is heterogeneous groups. In this game students are required to named words according to the letter that they have pick from the flash cards and its related to the categories given. Before that teacher have to state and explain clearly the definition of the 10 different categories given so that the students will have some idea about the categories. Ten second will be given to the students to think the words. Each student that able to name the correct word related to the categories will get 1 mark and the group with the highest mark will be the winner of this game.
In general, from this activity the students will learn new vocabulary related to the different categories. Besides that the activity also help students in pronunciation and to think quick and fast. To answer the question how did the language game that I implemented for the Game 1 activity might have enhance language learning of my students, firstly I will discuss the approach that related to this game. From my understanding, the approach that related to this game is The Communicative Approach. According to Larsen-Freeman (1986), the main goal of this approach is to enabling the to communicate using the target language and one of the activity that suitable to be use in this approach is playing games because it is enjoyable and if it is properly design it will give useful communicative practice to students. Moreover, because of the purpose of this game is to make students to communicate effectively, so it is insufficient that the students to have some knowledge of the target language, forms, meaning and function. The students must be able to utilize this knowledge in negotiating meaning. Reflect back to the game, for students to be able to give or name the words related to the categories and letter selected, the students have to understand the meaning of categories and have some background knowledge about the things that related with the categories.
How did this language game might have enhanced language learning? This language game might have enhanced the language learning of the students from the content that the teacher delivered to them. The content of the game was chosen to meet the competent level of the students because in Krashen 5 basic hypothesis, he claims that we acquired language only by one way that is by receiving comprehensible input or in other words understanding the messages. However, to make the comprehension and acquisition to occur, the input contains forms and structures have to be just beyond the students level of competence in language. (Lightbown and Spada, 1993; 28)
Furthermore, the style of the game conducted was helping in motivating the students in learning the language. The way the game was played which is in groups makes the acquisition available because they did not feel stress in the class and when the students feel happy and less stress, the process of learning will be more successful. I believe this game was practical and enjoyable to be practice in class. As what Hyacinth (1999) believe, there is one major advantage to using games in language teaching and it is games allow learners to fully use the language that they have learned, participating in the communicative process throughout the games. With practice comes progress, with progress comes motivation and with motivation comes more learning.
From here we an conclude that, games in language is actually brings a lot of advantages to the second language teaching and learning and there are still teachers that think it might bring problems during the process of delivery the games. Moreover, games also will help the students learning the language more effectively because it I done in nonthreatening situations.

3:10 pm - What a Holiday!
Hi, everybody! So Did you enjoy your holiday? As for me I gained new experience this holiday. It quite suprising to me actually. I never taught that my holiday will give a big impact in my life:-) but still i didn't manage to finish my work. I think I didn't try hard to finish it. 7 days I spent my h\olidays at home but I only manage do 1/3 from my work. That's bad isn't it?I really don't know what happen to me. I can't manage my time well (I think) and I feel like I want to give up but I can't. After this break I will face much more other work including assignment and tests. It really make me gor headache man! I can't think straight anymore I think...and now because of too many things to think I always forgot about a lot of things. Like before the holiday, I forgot that I have to send 1 comment for article and I forgot. Fuih...I don't know what to do.....I'm tired with my life actually but I still keep trying to struggled till the end.Can I make it? What do you think?
Okla, that's all from me. I feel so cold now because the air-cond in PSZ is too cold (well, I hate air-cond.... :-))
See you next time....Good Luck for all your test...

12:55 pm - Secret of FrozenLove
Hi, there! Moshi, mishi! Sihat? Emmtoday I'm going to tell you a story about my nick-FROZENLOVE. Emm..I'm wondering when I start use this name. I couldn't remember it. Anyway actually for me this nick didn't bring much meaning to me. Guys, want to know where and how did I get this nick? Well, let me begin my story now. Actually since I'm in Form 2, I really like the shape of a heart, I mean love and I always draw this shape on my hand with read pen and it's look like a tattoo! I really love to do it and I think it's my habit when I was in Form 2. I think the shape of heart and red in color is so beautiful although my mother always mumbling to me when she saw what I did. Then until now I still make the shape of heart is symbol of myself. That's the story about the word LOVE in my nick.
Well, for the word FROZEN, there's no interesting history about it. I assume all of you know Madonna song entitle Frozen. Ha, the word Frozen in my nick I took from that song la. For your information when I was in Form 5, I really like that song and it's video clip. I feel that there's unique element in that song. That's why I choose the title of the song to be part of my nickname.
For me this nick doesn't bring anything to me accept that it is true that my heart really frozen because I've never ever get the chance fall in love since I was in my secondary school until here. That's the reasons why my heart is frozen now. Another thing, my roommate said that my heart was frozen because I've fall in love with someone and I reserve the love him.what a great and funny theory that she have made up.

2:51 pm - The Uncomplete Life.
Hi, there! Sihat? So how's life? Still got headache? Well, I think all of you still ok, right? Ho's holiday? Well, I think for all my classmates this holiday was not really a holiday right? We have to do 1001 works for all the lecturers. So, in today's entry I would like to talk about uncomplete life. Well, for some of us especially for all my friends, it is a very sad thing for us to think about but we have to face it anyway in our life. I believe that life is not complete if we don't have much education and never feel the feeling falling in love. Now, I strongly believe that all of us have the education that we need for our future but we still lost something. It is LOVE. Now we are in final year and some of us including me my self still have no idea the about the feel falling in love. For me falling in love is one of the rituals of live. If we don't feel it, it means we have lost something that I think a wonderful thing in our entire life although love sometimes break people's heart and make them sad. One thing that I don't understand is though love can make people sad and break their heart why still people can fall in love and believe in love? I think it is very unique! For those who read this entry, can you please give me some idea about what I've written? Help me answer all the questions that I can't the answer my self.
Till then, see you next time. Have a nice day everybody and good luck for everything you doJ Babai!

9:27 pm - Special Letter That I Just received.
Hi, there! Ogensi desuka? Its been a long time since the last time I sent my journal entries. So how are things going on? Is everybody submitted their article? Today Ive received a letter from my student. It was from the student that I teach during my practical teaching. I was really shocked and happy. I never taught that my students would send me any letter. Well, for my practical teaching, I went to teach at Sek. Men. Keb. Convent Batu Pahat. Its a girl school as you realize it. Suddenly her letter reminds me the moment I teach her class, the best Form 2 class in SMCPB 2 Arif. All the students in this class is a very smart student and they also has a good level of English proficiency especially for the Chinese students.
The name of students that sent me the letter is Cindy Eliza Vaz and shes a Eurosian and I will never forget that all her classmates call her future Mariah Carey and I think most of Form 2 students at that school know that she wants to be like Mariah Carey. Shes a cute and very friendly too. One of her hobby is reading storybooks. When I told her that I also like reading, she was really interested with all what I told her. She seems different from her friends in her class. She told me that she wants to be a writer in future and for now shes learning on how to be a writer. Besides shes also inn process of writing story of her life. Well, she had a very high dream and I believe she will achieve it. So thats all from me, Till then see you next time..Take care and have a nice day.Jamata! Babai!!!

11:35 am - Challenging Life as a Final Year Student
2.26 am - 3.15 am Monday Morning (July 2, 2001)

Moshi, moshi! Hi, everybody! Ogenki desuka? Suddenly I feel like I want to write my second entry on this early morning. Actually I want to do my thesis but I cant because I have no idea to write anything and Im stuck from this morning until now. Wow, thats a very long time I guess Want to know something? From morning till this moment I only manage to write only one sentence for my introduction and I think it is a very bad and I felt so terrible. Should I felt this terrible feeling? Doing this project really makes me think a lot until it scares me to sleep because I think sleeps really waste my time. (It does happen to all my friends too..) Well, I think for this semester, I live just for my undergraduate project.read PSM, sleep PSM, eat PSM J
This semester is one of the worst semesters in my life (I think, betul ke?).18 credits with project paper. Feel like Im going to be one of TESLs professor in a short time because I have to read a lot of books, articles, journals and I also have to write a lots. (Just kidding!) All in English! Oh, gosh.I know and realize English is part of my life now though Im not really good in it. This time read English, sleeps English, eat English (EkkekkekkekJ)
I should think positively about my work right? Actually, before this I never thought that my project will be this hard because I never and dont want to think that all the works that I have do (whether related to studies or not) is hard although its really really hard in real life J Right now Im really tension and do you think there is cure for my tension? How can I motivate myself? In what way? I believe that I become a lazy person this semester because of too much work that I have to think and do and also because I dont know which work I should do first. (Please do give your feedback to this entry if you have any cure for my tensionbelieve me I would try anything if it will help me to survive for this semester.specially to maintain my exams results but please do give me the good one not something that will give negative effect to me.ok?)
I Think Ill better stop here for now. Although I have wrote the things that I feel right now but still its not enough. Only partly I manage to narrate what I feel and for the other part..I cant. Till then see you next time and please to all my friends and the reader of this entry, please dont laugh when you read the things I write here. May be when you read, it seems like its a small things or nonsense but for me and all my friends here this is how we feel right now, this moment in this semester and until the end of our final yearWow, we are going to be a really tough person by the end of our final year! Believe me because our life here as a student is sooooooooo and really really challenging.
Have a nice day and take care. Got to go..see you next time. Jamata!! Bye!!

3:38 pm - My day....
Today is Sunday....This morning I have 'gotong-royong to clean my block. We started at 7 am. I was so sleepy at that time because I sleep late last night. I feel like I don't want to wake up to clean the block :-)Actually I'm a quite lazy to do such a work in the morning.
After that I went to the library with one of my friends to find topics to do our Discourse Analysis paper that will be due on week 11. Although it is still far away but our lecturer wants to see the proposal next by this week. That makes us tension got headache to think of the suitable topic. Besides that I also trying to find some reading materials for me to read for my PSM...It is because my supervisor want to discuss the things that I have read on this Tuesday so if I didn't read anything how am I going to discuss with him? Reading book on education actually really make me sleepy...because I didn't get enough sleep from my practical teaching days until now. I feel like my eyes looks like a 'panda bear'.....But it's ok I think..As long I can manage my time between study and other activities I think I still can make it until the end....Wow! I didn't expect that I'm having such a strong spirit!Anyway, want to know something? I always feel that I'm a strong girl because I still can survive (with out doing some crazy things) until now although I've faced my problems since the first day I entered UTM. I'm really glad and happy with my life here....and for sure I'll miss this place after I graduate....
Okla....I think I should stop here....I had to do other things after this.
See you next time! :-)
