本来上课很兴奋，平时我上课时爱作梦，脑海里都是漫画戏。所以我每天都会被老师骂。我第一次考试都不及格，所以我都会被妈咪打骂。后来，我第二次考试到50，60分。如果，在学校里算是及格，只是妈咪觉得很差，所以妈咪都给我补习。每次补习都很累，我还要读 ejaan 和读听写要读很多次才会。如果不会的话，就要被妈咪打骂。经过妈咪的努力和教导后，终于得到了80%。

For dinner, roast seitan, fried bean curb with vegetable…
For the rest top by bus from Sunway Pyramid, PJ to Penang. We stopped at a rest stop. They are local spicy meals, local fruit, snacks. I had RM2 cut ripe mango. I paid RM3 (USD1) for a bag of 300gm boiled peanuts. The lady in the stall even gave me an extra plastic bag for the shelves. sweet! The Aeroline bus gave us a 500 ml mineral water.
Aeroline bus offer vegan food in the bus. Fried rice was fried with fried tofu. At first I thought they are egg. Well, surprise! Many vegetarian meal has egg. I am a plant-based. Thank you Aeroline bus. I am going from Petaling Jaya to Penang. It is a 5 1/2 hours drive to the north for RM 125 round trip ( about USD 40).

Hi, My name is Simon Tan. I am 16 years old and I have dyslexia.
I studied at Sin Ming Chinese school, when I was in primary school. I did not do well in school. My report card was all red marks. I did not like school because I cannot read well the words and understand it although I tried my best. I have great difficulty coping with three languages (Chinese, English, and Bahasa Malaysia) taught in school. The teachers punished me. They say I’m lazy.
I have two brothers who have dyslexia. My mother noticed that I have the same characteristics and difficulties as my brothers. She had me tested by Pastor Serena. She took me out of school and I joined my brother, Jonathan at Katsu when I was 9 years old.
I started the reading program with Jonathan. This is the best thing that happened to us. In 6 months we could read, write, and spell words that we could not spell before. I met many amazing people having the same problems as me. I started learning phonics and I was able to understand the words after I have learned the phonics. Slowly everyday I improved. I was able to work on my own after 6 months of training. I became independent, helpful, and hard working. I have purpose and even thought about writing a book. I like all my teachers and they encourage me in my studies and writing.
After 7 years studying at Katsu, I became much better at reading and writing. I am more disciplined and helpful.
I am thankful my mother is my advocate. She made so many sacrifices for me. I love my mother for helping me to become what I am today.
Now I would like to be a Hotel Owner. My ambition is to have a Multi-Billion-Dollar Hotel where all the rich and famous will come and enjoy my luxurious hotel.
