Finally the food came...

This book is the continuation of the book of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Willy Wonka has just given the ownership of the whole factory to Charlie. They flew using the Great Glass Elevator to go to Charlie's house. They crashed into the roof of Charlie's house to inform Charlie's family of the good news.
Charlie's grandparents, Grandpa George and Grandma Georgina on his mother's side and Grandpa Josephine on his father's side are nervous of traveling using the elevator. Since they have not got up for 20 years, they refused to get up. So, they were pushed inside on their beds.
The Great Glass Elevator then takes off. During the return trip to the factory, Georgina grabs Wonka away from the controls and strands the elevator with its occupants in Earth's orbit. Wonka sees the chance to link it with the newly-launched Space Hotel, a private enterprise of the US government.
In the white house, the President of the United States and his people see this mysterious object (The Great Glass Elevator) docking at the Space Hotel. They think it contained aliens. The president address Willy Wonka and the others as Martians. Willy Wonka says all kind of nonsense. But then, suddenly, the elevators of the hotel open, and five creatures, brown-green in color shaped like an eggs appear. They change shape and form a word SCRAM. Willy Wonka signaled everyone to get in the elevator and got out of the Space Hotel as quickly as possible. Willy Wonka The things that changed shape were Vermicious Knids, that infested the Space Hotel. They can't get into Earth's surface because of Earth's atmosphere.
The shuttle carrying the chefs and everything was being attacked by the Knids. Charlie suggests that he and his companions use the Elevator to tow the shuttle in to land. Willy Wonka, in agreement, pilots the Elevator into range, wherapon Charlie's Grandpa Joe connects the two vessels by means of a steel cord. This move, however, holds new opportunities for the Knids. Within minutes, they change into living segments of a towing line, with which they intend to drag the spacecrafts away. One large Knid wraps his body around the Elevator, providing an anchor for this operation. Willy Wonka activates the Elevator's retro-rockets and plunges to Earth, taking the shuttle and the Knids with it. The Knids burn to ashes. At the right moment, Wonka releases the shuttle, which floats safely home. The Elevator crashes into the chocolate factory.
Since Charlie was presented the factory as a gift by Wonka, he wants his family to help him run it. But George, Georgina, and Josephine still refuse to move out of their bed. Wonka proposes a pill he invented, Wonka-Vite, to make them young again. However, the three got greedy and take much more than they need to. Instead of becoming a mere twenty years younger, the three grandparents lose eighty years, making George one year old, Josephine three months, and Georgina absent altogether, having become "minus two". Charlie and Wonka make the journey in the Great Glass Elevator to Minusland to get Georgina back with Vita-Wonk, a sprayable compound that makes people older. Minusland is a dark, gloomy region far beneath the surface of the Earth, filled up entirely with fog, and inhabited only by the invisible and highly dangerous Gnoolies, creatures which, with a single bite, turn their victims into more Gnoolies. After administering an even worse overdose of Vita-Wonk to Grandma Georgina, they return to the upper world. Georgina has become centuries old. Using a more cautious dose of Wonka-Vite, her companions subtract much of this age from her, leaving her at seventy-eight as she was before. Turning to George and Josephine, Charlie and Mr. Wonka administer Vita-Wonk enough to recall their original age.
The grandparents, finally restored to their proper ages, are still incensed with Wonka's adventurous nature. They refuse, as before, to come out of bed. The Oompa-Loompas then come in and give Wonka a letter from the President, congratulating the occupants of the Great Glass Elevator on saving the lives of the shuttle astronauts and hotel staff and inviting them as the guests of honour to a White House dinner. The grandparents don't want to be left out, so they leap out of bed and join Charlie, Grandpa Joe, Wonka, and Charlie's parents to enter the helicopter sent to pick them up.
This book is as good as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I give this book a 9/10 rating also...

Why do they need to come up with such a rule? What are the odds of foreign dignitaries visiting Terengganu? How often do the prime minister, deputy prime minister or sultans visit the state? Once a month? Or once a year? If the cars are not going to be used regularly, why keep them? What a waste! Since it is bought, may as well use it, right? And put it in good use.

Personally, i think it is a good move, because then we know what is going on in there, and not be in the dark. People will have an idea of what is happening. People will also know that things are being judged fairly and done fairly.
I think this should have been done long ago by the UMNO. I suppose they didn't think of it. Or maybe they did, but they didn't carry it out, because of some unknown reasons they didn't carry it out. It would have shown that they have nothing would hide, and people would still vote them.
Conclusion, I think it is a good move for the opposition to broadcast their state assembly proceedings live.

This book is about Sophie and the Big Friendly Giant. Let me tell you about this story. One night, Sophie couldn't sleep. She was an orphan. Sophie was snatched by a giant. Fortunately for Sophie, she was abducted by a friendly giant, called the Big Friendly Giant or the BFG.
The BFG catches good dreams and blow them via a blowpipe into bedrooms of children. When he catches a nightmare, he explodes it. When he went catching dreams with Sophie, he caught a golden phizzwizard. After that, he caught a nightmare, the worst one there was...
The other giants are not so pleasant, every night, they eat human beans. Unlike the BFG, he eats snozzcumber and drinks frobscottle, which is fizzy and delicious. The bubbles travel downwards instead of upwards.
Sophie and BFG become friends. Eventually, they planned a plan to get rid of the giants and save the people. First, the BFG mixes dreams and blows the dream into the Queen's bedroom. The BFG leaves Sophie on the Queen's windowsill, and hides in the garden.
When the Queen awakens, Sophie tells her that her dreams was true. The Queens believes her and they were given a breakfast. The Queen thens confirm the story by calling the King of Sweden, and the Sultan of Baghdad.
After that, the Queen orders a huge fleet of helicopters to follow the BFG into the giant's homeland and ties them up. They were then put into a huge pit constructed.
As a punishment for child-eating, the giants are forced to eat snozzcumbers for their rest of their lives.
This is a good book. One you start this book, you will not want to put this book down until you have finished the book. I give it a 9/10 rating.

Fortunately for me, I got do his work, and only have a little not completed. But, I still fell the injustice in this scheme. I think the teacher should just demerit the students how don't complete his work. Or maybe hand this problem to the discipline teacher.
But everything has the good side. Basically, I think the teacher just wants us to do his work, so that we can excel in Mathematics and Additional Mathematics. Some students just don't do his work at all in class, instead, they read newspaper or just talk.
But this has backfired, because setting the deadline just two days, the students are just copying the solutions and answers from friends. This doesn't benefit them at all....
So, how do you say it? Is this a good move a not of the teacher???

The current placings for the top 10 countries:
- Brazil (Brazil number 4? Unbelievable, I thought Brazil was the best!)
- Czech Republic
- Portugal (What? My favorite team is at almost the bottom of the 10?)
Hm... I wonder if Spain can still stand strong and beat Chile.

This book is a true story about a girl named Joanna. Let me tell you a little about her story. Joanna is half Kurd, half Arab. Her father is an Arab. Her mother is a Kurd. She was born and grew up in Baghdad. In Baghdad, Kurds are hated. She had two brothers, Sa'ad and Ra'ad. Ra'ad managed to escape to Europe.
Joanna fell in a love with a guy name Sarbast. Sarbast was a peshmerga. Peshmerga stands for Kurdish fighters, fighting for the freedom of Kurdistan from the power of Iraq.
She left Baghdad to be married. But Joanna's marriage was an usual one. The groom did not attend the wedding. After the wedding, she headed off to the mountains of Iraq to join her groom and be a peshmerga wife.
One day, Saddam Hussein ordered his cousin "Chemical Ali" to bombard Joanna's village, Bergalou, with chemical weapons. She was blinded by that attack. After being caught in another bombardment, they left and tried to flee over the mountains. They crossed the Kandil mountain with the help of Crazy Hassan. Crazy Hassan was the bravest smuggler. They had to watch out for the jahsh. The jahsh were Kurdish informers working for the Iraqi government.
After giving birth to her first son, they managed to escape to UK and settle there.
This is indeed a good book. I think people who are interested in human rights should read this book. I give this book a 9.5/10 rating.
