TV commercial
The television commercial for Hari Raya by PETRONAS is very meaningful. It is begin with a man at his father’s grave. He looks at his son and he begins dreaming of his past while he was young. He was playing with his friend and his father asked him to go to shop. He walks angrily. When he come back, he wrote a letter to his father ask for money for making him do many things. His father seems not responding. He doesn’t want to eat. Then he sulks in his room. He saw a letter from his father said all cost of raising him is no charge because his father loves him more than anything on earth. He fall asleep and his father came look at him. Then he come back to him now and said he will always say prayer to his father and that’s all no charge.

Important lesson I learn from playing as a child
When I was 11 years old, I learned a lesson about love and relationship from my pet, Putih. I called her Putty. Putty had three little kittens, Oreo, Kunni, and Compo. They are very cute. When they were born I saw Putty licked them. I wonder why she doing that. I’d love to see she feed her children. She lied down and her children come. I don’t how they can find it because at that time their eyes didn’t open yet. One day, when they’re big enough to run a break hearted incident had happened. Oreo was playing with his sisters on the road in front of my house. Suddenly a car runs on him. Putty quickly runs to him. I bring Oreo to side. Putty looks so sad. After Oreo’s died Putty wasn’t on appetite. Another day after that, she died the same way as her son. My mom told me, that’s a mother love. Children are everything to a mother.

Something I learned about brain
Before I learned this topic, I always thought that brain just a place we use to keep memories, thinking, and learning. I never know that brain can influenced by environment. In this topic, the article tells about the connections of genes and life experience with brain. Other than that, if we learn a new thing, the brain cells will grow a new connection. It means, we can be more intelligent if we learn. I also learned about the simple way of keeping memory. We can use chunks to memorize. Body learning is connection between memory and physical actions. This kind of memory is lasts in longer time.

The worst advertisement
Advertisements and TV commercials are important for company or any organization to sell their products, services, and movies. Of course, ads play an important role in promoting products. But, sometimes there’re mistakes in the ads and that make the ads worst. The worst advertisement is when they put some useless things in their advertisement such as fruits in tires commercial. Other than that, bored ads were worst too. People won’t see and not interested with the advertisement. Nobody will buy or need a product their not interested in.

The sweet memory when I’ve been taught by parents/someone.
When I was a young boy, my father was taught me how to plant vegetables and fruits. He brought me to the farm and told me everything from the beginning until the time to pick fruits. I was enjoy help him. At the same time I played with the tools. He’s not mad with me. He just smiles. The best part is when we want to sell those fruits and vegetables at the market. I am happy to see many people buy from us. When all vegetables and fruits sold, my father gave me some money. It was the profit of the selling. He said it is for helping him. Thanks dad. I love you so much.
