Women's World

"Women are getting more and more multi-faceted by the day. whether it's cosmetics, an indulgent spa, kickboxing classes or a trendy restaurant, women are strong earners and live the modern lifestyle with zest.

We invited exciting brands to participate in our hugely popular Star Special where you'll have the chance to target women and brand accordingly through a good story."

I found the above in the STAR. It is an advertisement, but I like the words so teacher share this with you. Task for you: As a writing exercise, I want you (boys and girls) to post a picture of a spa, or makeup or whatever you think women like! Then do a write-up on the picture you have posted.

This is Teacher's post:

To unwind and destress, I went for a most relaxing and pampering facial at Estee. What about you?

Good Luck, Syafikah, we will miss you.

Dear Syafikah, Even though you have left our class, I will always miss you because you will come to the front and seek some reassurance(sorry I chased you away! I thought you were disturbing my speaking group....) and I like your insatiable quest for knowledge. Don't give up studying in your new chosen field and I hope to see you successful one day. P.S. I miss your sidling into the class long after I have started lessons, at least you made the effort to come to school! You also shocked me one day when you came in, put your bags down, and headed for the biscuit tin!!! You had not have your breakfast, you explained. Well, Syafikah, at least you showed up!!

  • to protect and preserve the environment,
  • introduce green products
  • to highlight green initiatives advocated by the government to promote green living.

This is aimed at raising awareness of green practices and to encourage Malaysians from different walks of life to embrace a green lifestyle.
