She had become accustomed to it as she had done for the past thirty years. She had no qualms about living the windows of her cottage open all day, even in the night. Nothing could frighten her. One chilly night, while she was boiling some water to make herself some hot coffee, a young man in old and grubby clothing crept up and suddenly and quietly from behind and cupped her mouth with his hand. He was amazed the old lady did not resist nor struggle to get free. Gazing into her warm eyes, he removed his hand from her mouth. “I don’t mean to hurt you, madam,” the young man said. The old lady , unruffled and showing no signs of fear or whatsoever of the young man, made her way slowly to her favourite rocking chair by the fire. In the meantime, the man, who caught sight of two golden cups on her table, snatched them up and examined them. “I’m afraid they are not made of real gold,” she said apologetically. “You’ve got money in this house. I want it!” demanded the man impatiently. “I know it’s in my handbag. I’ve been searching for it all morning as I’ve misplaced it. I’m always in that kind of trouble, if it’s not my handbag, it’s my keys or spectacles.” She then invited the man to sit down and have some coffee and cookies. The man was dumbfounded. “Here, help yourself to these freshly-baked chocolate cookies.” The man was speechless but he accepted the invitation. “You’re a beggar, aren’t you?” she asked casually as she served him some coffee and cookies. “I wasn’t born a burglar. I’ve been forced by circumstances. I’ve been out of a job for the last six months. Hunger has forced me into burglary.” “Yes, I understand. It’s most unfortunate that you’ve chosen to rob me on the day I’ve misplaced my money. Well, young man, let us make a deal. I need someone to tend to my garden, but I can’t afford to hire you. Instead I’ll give you food.” “It’s a sporting offer, Missie!” the young man said. For the first time, he broke into a broad smile. FORM 1; B4 DB1 E1

FORM 1; B5 DL1 E1 Last weekend, there was heavy rain in Kampung Delima and the village was flooded. The flood victims were moved temporarily to the village community hall. Yesterday, the 15th November, I joined the girl guides and the boy scouts from my school to help the flood victims. Firstly, we distributed the food and drinking water to the victims. Each family received three cans of sardine, a packet of rice, five packets of instant noodles and a few bottles of drinking water. We also gave them clothes, towels and sleeping mats that were donated by the Parent Teacher Association of our school. Then, we helped to clean the hall. Some of us swept and mopped the floor. Later, we collected the rubbish around the hall compound. We also cleaned the toilets and wiped the windows. In the evening, we helped to take care of the children because their mothers were busy cooking. Eddie and Chee Kiat told interesting stories to entertain the children. The children really enjoyed listening to the stories. Later, we all sang some songs. At the end of the day, we were glad that we had the chance to help the flood victims. If given a chance, we would definitely volunteer to help those in need. Written by Anna Lim, Form 1A

FORM 1; B5 DB1 E1 Cooking is one job that most children enjoy. Most parents do not allow their children into the kitchen because of the potential accidents that can occur. Research shows that children acquire many useful skills when cooking. Teaching a child to cook is beneficial and fun. By learning to weigh and measure ingredients and watching milk heat up, children learn about Mathematics and Science. Besides, children can also learn about the importance of food. They can be told to stop eating junk food and taught to cook nutritious meals instead. Social skills can also be learnt in the kitchen. Working together on a recipe teaches children the importance of cooperation and sharing tasks. Hence, cooking is a great joy. Even a cooking disaster can be funny, for example, when a freshly baked cake ends up on the kitchen floor. Children can also enjoy the companionship of cooking. Chatting while cooking and preparing a meal is a lovely pastime. Adopted: Just English 2005
