In April 24-26, I attended an International Language Conference in UIA Gombak with the title of my presentation Exploring Motivation and Attitude in Learning English Among First Semester Tourism Students in UiTM Penang. I was quite nervous as it was my first time presenting in a conference but the the audience was very kind and supportive. They gave me a big applause despite a little inaccuracy in my explanations. I was grateful to learn from this first experience! :

On the 14-16 June, i attended another International Conference organized by USM in Parkroyal Hotel Penang and the title is Children's Mature Morality in Roald Dahl's Selected Novels. To me, the presentation is a success. The conference room is crowded with international and local people (i cant believe that many are fans of Roald Dahl). If Roald Dahl is still alive, he must be proud of me. LOL.

On the 23-30th July, i was in Seoul, Korea for another International Conference. The best part was, i made new friends with people from all around the world. My presentation this time around is about children's literature - An Analysis of Children's Immature Morality in Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. As my presentation was on the 3rd day in the morning (8.30am), the crowd is less but i was glad the audience comes from those who teach in kindergarten and those who love children.

On the 10th Sept, my collegaue and i took part in IID Competition organized by Research Management Unit, UiTM Penang. Although we did not win any medal, i learned a lot from the experience!
The curtain of 2011 will be closed with a lot of sweet and bitter memories.
Smiling, i can feel the storm has calmed down slowly with a more soothing cooling wind.
