    Last month, during the one-week holiday, Dave decided to join a society as avolunteer. It was a society that cared for mentally handicapped children. His first jobwas to go with the children on a three-day outing to Port Dickson. Although he hadnever done social work, he found it to be a beautiful experience.

    His duties included helping the mentally handicapped children to do veryordinary things such as cleaning and dressing themselves. He had to even help intoilet-training for the more seriously disabled ones. It was indeed hard work as muchlove, patience and dedication were required.

    Dave also helped to feed the children during meal times. Some severelydisabled children were unable to eat by themselves and the workers had to feed them.The others who could manage on their own were a little clumsy with their forks andspoons but they made sure they kept the eating table clean. They also made sure thattheir plates and cups were washed and put in the proper place after washing.

    Being a good guitarist, Dave was often asked to play the instrument and singto the children to keep them entertained. The children loved listening to Dave and theywould 'sing' along with him. Their singing was more humming and saying aloudstrange words rather than actual singing, as many of them could not even speakproperly. Nevertheless, Dave saw that the children liked listening and singing alongwith him.

    Once Dave asked one of the workers why the organisation wanted to spend somuch trouble, time and money taking these special children on an outing. The worker,with a gentle smile replied, "These children deserve to lead a normal life. We try ourbest to help them feel like they are normal children and going out just for fun is one ofthe things."

    For Dave, this was one of the best holidays he had ever had.

    29 What did Dave do during his one-week holiday?A He applied for ajob.B He did some social work.e He went on a picnic at Port Dickson.D He learned about handicapped children.

    SULIT 13 12/1

    Questions 38 - 40 are based on the extract from the short story Of Bunga Telur and BallyShoes.

    Cousin Lan tried to continue, but was angrily cut short by Jamal. "Of course, it's alot of pitis, you miser," Jamal retorted. "These are real Bally shoes, not your pirated Golokversion. If you're not interested, never mind. I'll take my merchandise elsewhere, butyou're not going to take advantage of my situation to be your usual conniving miserly self,"sulked Jamal.

    Cousin Lan quickly made amends, afraid of losing a lifetime treasure. "I was justkidding, Mal. Don't take it so hard. Of course, RM430.00 is fine, but can I pay byinstalments?" The look on Jamal's face deterred further arguments.

    In the afternoon, Cousin Lan went to the post office and took out his savings,RM430.00 in hard cash changed hands. A beautiful pair of shoes also changed ownership.Out of Jamal's sight. Cousin Lan lovingly examined his new possession. How supple theleather, how rich the aroma, how sensuous the sole. It was all too much for Cousin Lan.They were not called real Bally Shoes for nothing. Probably even the batik towkays inPenambang couldn't afford those shoes at their original Lot 10 prices, but he, Zailan, thehumble Kota Bahru land office clerk, was their proud owner! His nostrils flared in pride.

    38 Which of the following traits does Cousin Lan have?A SelflessB SincereC HonestD Vain

    39 The phrase lifetime treasure refers toA the instalmentsB the Bally shoesC Cousin Lan's savingsD the price of the Bally shoes

    40 What was Cousin Lan thinking when he was examining the shoes?A Everyone would criticise him.B Everyone would tease him.C Everyone would envy him.D Everyone would love him.
