Dear Editor, REBEL ABOUT THE COST If movie ticket prices are going to double up, many may choose to stay home and watch Astro programmes instead. I am a student and I watch movies at cinemas a lot with my friends and family. To pay for twice the price will definitely deter a lot of people to frequent cinemas. What more a student like me! This is not a good prospect for the local film industry especially. People would rather wait for the local movies to be shown on TV rather than watch them on cinemas with the increase in the ticket prices. Similarly, I can surely stay at home and watch a lot of movies on Astro and still enjoy myself if I can‟t afford pricey cinema ticket prices. Muthusamy Chelliah

9

Based on the above letter, which of these statements is true? A B C D Movies on Astro are more enjoyable to watch. People who frequent the cinemas are normally students. Muthusamy complains about the quality of films in cinemas. A hike in cinema ticket prices will discourage people to go to cinemas.

Did Mr Tan give you a good report? I don‟t know. Anyway, I don‟t care and I don‟t mind telling him so! I wouldn‟t if I were you. Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face. You need that scholarship!

10 „Don‟t cut off your nose to spite your face‟ means A B C D Don‟t make things worse for yourself. Don‟t disfigure your face. Don‟t upset yourself. Don‟t be rude.

Questions 33-40 are based on the following passage.

Jerry was the kind of person who was always in a good mood and had something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, “If I were any better, I would be twins!”

He was a unique manager because he had several waiters who had followed him around from one restaurant to another. They followed Jerry because of his attitude. He was a natural motivator. If an employee was having a bad day, Jerry was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.

Seeing this style really made me curious. So one day, I went up to Jerry and asked him, “I don‟t get it! You can‟t be a positive person all the time. How do you do it?” Jerry replied, “Each morning I wake up and say to myself, „Jerry, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or a bad mood.‟ I choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or to learn from it. I choose to learn from it. Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaints or to point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life.”

“It‟s not that easy!” I protested. “Yes, it is.” Jerry said. “Life is all about choices. Every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations and you choose how people will affect your mood. The bottom line is, it‟s your choice how you live your life.” I reflected on what Jerry said.

Soon, I left the restaurant industry to start my own business. We lost touch but I often thought about him when I made a choice about life. Several years later, I heard that Jerry did something you are never supposed to do in a restaurant business. He left the back door open one morning and was held up at gunpoint by three armed robbers. While trying to open the safe, his hand shaking from nervousness, slipped off the combinations. The robbers panicked and shot him.

Luckily Jerry was found quickly and rushed to the local trauma centre. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, Jerry was released from the hospital with bullet fragments still in his body. I saw Jerry about six months after the robbery. He wanted to show his scars but I declined. However I did ask him what had gone through his mind as the robbery took place. Jerry replied.”While lying wounded on the floor, I remembered I had two choices, to live or to die. I chose to live.”
