Camscanner App

Camscanner is one of the apps I always recommend to fellow science teachers cuz our resources are diagrams heavy. One of the best scanning app. It can even auto-remove shadow and it’s auto and magic colour setting is amazing! I’m rarely disappointed with the outcome. Major plus point- there’s no watermark for their jpg files. It’s also convenient cuz you can share it via many options after that, including dropbox and email.

Ok, go download Camscanner now!

Honey Cornflakes

First kueh for raya baked this year…

It’s honey cornflakes!
Got the recipe from Dessertini cuz it’s easy-peasy and yummy. Been making them for the past 3 years ever since she shared with me.

How easy-peasy it is?

Simply heat sugar, honey and butter over low heat…

Then, pour it over the cornflakes, mix them, put in the cups and pop into oven for just about 10 min. It’s that easy!

Just some tips… Keep mixing once in awhile as you add them to the cups, cuz otherwise the honey will just drip/sink, whatever you call it, to the bottom. Mixing it once in awhile ensure the honey is evenly distributed.

Enjoy making and munching on them, like I did!

Making appointment slots using Google Calendar

On of the key difference between a personal Google account and Gsuite Education account is that you get to add appointment slots on Calendar through Gsuite Education account.

You can check out the tutorial here and some FAQs here.

To be honest, it is fairly easy. Simply access Google Calendar through your Gsuite Education account and click on the time to be made available for appointment booking.

Then, click on “Appointment slots”.

Quran and Science Festival

Working with yet another dynamic team. The team is made up of ladies of various background- homeschooling mummies, educator and researcher, and of different strength- admin, finance, copywriter and publicity.

It all comes together nicely for our event- the inaugural Quran and Science festival.


We finally met face-to-face last weekend. Pretty amazing how we had been planning for the event simply by whatsapp and only 1 Google Hangout video call thus far 😱

Anyway, credit really to the other ladies for conceptualising the event. I only joined halfway. I was amused to see that “contact Huda, FEST” was actually on their Gantt Chart they had drawn up 😂 and hey, I’m glad they did 😊

Steady hand game

Currently doing electricity with Sec 3 NT and here’s throwback of a bonus activity I did with them last year for the chapter on Electricity. Each pair received a kit of battery, chopstick, straw, lightbulb, wire and index card to make their own steady hand game.

The video shows my first prototype 👏

It was not that difficult. They managed to get it done within 1hr lesson.

They designed their own loop and had fun challenging each other. A player is out if the bulb lights up.
