Last week we gave our students the task of speaking about the following question:
"If you had 3 wishes, what would you wish for?"
There were plenty of serious and amusing answers, and the best will be featured in this post.
One boy named Win shared 3 well-thought-out wishes. His first wish was to have power over time; second, to be immortal; and third, to have infinity wishes!
Haqeem and Yu Chen similarly wished for more wishes.
Zoe wanted a castle while Eugene wished for a UFO so he could go and visit aliens in space! Zhen Hui wished he could travel around the universe to find other life on different planets.
Jin Chiao believes Ironman is real and wished that this superhero would give him lots of suits so he can fly like Ironman.
Yu Chen, Siew Man and Yie Hong all wished there was no more school because it's boring. Xiang Qiao didn't want to totally eliminate school but did want longer school holidays.
Staying on the subject of education, Hui Zhi wants the government to change the school time as the start time is too early, while Kai Chin just wished she could pass her history exam!
On a more serious note, Cindy would like to go back in time to correct the mistakes she has made. Xing Wei said he would only use one wish and give the other two to his mum and dad. The following student gave the most emotional and sincere speech, and will remain anonymous here. This student wished he would stop being bullied and cried while sharing this with the class. Very brave child. (*At the time of writing, I've been informed that the situation has been resolved)
Sharmayne (pictured above) very kindly said she would buy a car for Teacher Duncan! Hope she wasn't thinking of a toy car like this one ;)
Muiz wants to be the richest man in the world while Kghartie would like to become the best squash player on the planet.
Nicolas, for reasons unknown, wished that the weather in Malaysia would be more like England's weather. (I still don't know what's so appealing about constant drizzle, grey skies, and cold wind?!) Perhaps he just wants it to be a little cooler over here :)
Irfan wished for Malaysia to beat Barcelona 2-0 in an upcoming friendly football match. I'm pretty sure that would indeed need a magic wish to come true!
Lavender wished she could go to Hello Kitty town in Johor Bharu while Nazuan wants to be the boss of Legoland.
A thin girl, Hui Xin, wished she could become fatter (I wouldn't mind putting another 5kgs on either!).
Going along with the Despicable Me 2 craze, Xiang Meng wished he could have many minions to help him do his work.
Finally, perhaps the most disturbing wish of all was shared by Kee Yok. He wished for a spellbook so he could kill his sister! Nothing like sibling rivalry!
