Four CLHS Students Missing in Boat Mishap

GEORGETOWN: The body of one of the five Chung Ling High School students, who went missing after their boat capsized in strong waves off Macallum Street Ghaut here, has been found.

Rescue workers found the body at 2.45pm on Sunday, believed to be that of Jason Ch'ng.

According to George Town acting OCPD Supt Gan Kong Meng, Ch’ng’s body was found under a boat not far from the shore.

Earlier, the body of their teacher Chin Aik Siang, 27, who was the school’s dragon boat team advisor, was found at about 11am.

A total of 17 students, aged between 16 and 17 years, and their teacher-cum-coach were training for a dragon boat race when the incident occurred at about 9am on Sunday just as the team was doing the final lap before returning to the shore.

The boat capsized when the students were doing a sharp manoeuvre, which hit a tug boat.

It is believed that strong currents had pulled the students into the water.

Twelve other students however managed to swim to the shore.

Some of them swam about 1km while some were rescued by two passing fishing boats.

A search and rescue operation has been mounted by the police, the Fire and Rescue Department and the Civil Defence Department.

The sunken boat has been recovered and towed to the shore.

Meanwhile, parents of the missing students are keeping a vigil near the scene.

Many of them were seen weeping openly and are being consoled by their relatives.

Those missing have been identified as Brandon Yeoh, Jason Ch’ng, Koh Yiz Hiang, Cheah Zi Jun, all 17, and Yong Xiang, 16.

It is learnt that some of the 17 students were not wearing life jackets.

It is learnt that the teacher Chin had only been recently appointed to the post.

He had been teaching science and mathematics for the past two years.

His body was sent to the Penang Hospital for post-mortem.

Meanwhile, Kuah Zi Xun, 17, who swam to the shore, said the strong current pulled down the students.

“Some of the who were wearing life jackets were also pulled down. I hope all my friends are safe,” he said.

Currently, more than 100 personnel from St John Ambulance, Rela, Penang Hospital, volunteer firefighters and divers from the Fire and Rescue Services department are involved in the search operations.

Penang police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Wira Ayub Yaakob told a press conference that the incident occurred about 150m from the shore.

“We are still investigating how many of them were wearing life jackets,” he said.

Mum's Convocation in USM

Skived school on Thursday to attend mummy’s convocation ceremony in USM. It was a BIG day for all of us as mum finally ended her Degree –
Bachelor of Social Science in Economics
for five whole years.
Congrats Mum!

That was really a stupendous achievement!

To finish a degree when you’re working and studying at the same time makes life a lot more bitter than a normal undergraduate. You have to cope with your studies,working pressure,and family too… Well,my mum isn’t any ordinary woman. No. She’s our superwoman. I’m not being modest,trying to show off but after five years of struggle,struggle and struggle again in her assignments and taking care of the entire household,I simply couldn’t deny that she’s super. Just take a look at her exam results… She earned Usm’s Dean List (Best student award) for a consecutive three years,and was always top in every subject… Except Islamic studies I think… But anyway,who gives a damn about this lamer-than-lame subject? Not even malays I’m afraid….
As we only had 2 tickets for entries into the hall,me and dad went to view the entire ceremony,leaving Zhen and Jia wandering outside.Oops. The Graduating ceremony turned out to be as boring as my moral lesson at school. Well,I’ve got my headphones with me so MJ and Debussy’s music filled my ears throughout the long-winded function rather than those wheezy professors calling out strings of graduates name and useless speeches…
Photo Time!!

Flowers for mum :)

Nice. Saw CLHS's Ex-Student Banner in front of the hall ;-)

Muakz...sweet move,dad... xD

And US!! Kiss Kiss Kiss....


CONGRATS AGAIN MUM!
WE LOVE YOU!!

June

Spent half of my first day of June in the Pusat Latihan Memandu Penang for the Lima Jam Setengah Undang Lecture. Believe it or not,there were only 8 people present today! (7 of them are chinese,including me) The whole hall was a bit too quiet and we were very lucky to have the 'best' lecturer on-air.

The first one-Mr Yusri,nice guy with a Robbert Pattinson hair style. Laughed a lot over his jokes during his lecture session. ^^
Always curi tulang with excuses like: hari ini sikit orang,i boleh habis ceramah dalam masa 2 jam saja... you orang sudah minum ke? i bagi you semua pi rehat... kantin ada di belakang,pi makan lah... i bagi masa 1.30 jam rehat...

Second one-Mr Sin,strict guy that looks almost like a malay. Well,his lecture was quite boring but at least i learnt some tips on car parking :)

Then i met a new friend there...Esther!!
Because of her i manage to solve Rubik's Cube twice in an hour. Woo,thanks!!
Well,she was the friendliest among the teens there. I'm impressed with her social skills,she seemed to know everyone in just 5 hours...

.Esther.
Thanks a lot for teaching! But too bad i only remember about 30% of the formulas now ^^

my dear rubiks :)

Holidays Are Here!!

To all my form 5 buddies,do enjoy our last ever June holidays. After this year,we'll end our secondary school life. And there will never be a mid-year 2 weeks holiday again... So,play as crazy as you can and study as much as possible.

(no joke,SPM's right around the corner!)

Finished our 2nd term exam in CLHS before the hols,did add maths very badly,probably will fail again... Promised my parents to try my very best in percubaan though. Anyone willing to give me private lessons on add maths? I'm willing to pay as long as you're good! NO joke!

It's been a time since i update my blog. Sorry guys ^^
