Definition of basket From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Baskets)
A basket is a container which is traditionally constructed from stiff fibres, often made of willow. The top is either left open or the basket may be fitted with a lid. The plant life available in a region affects the choice of material, which in turn influences the weaving technique. Rattan and other members of the Arecaceae or palm tree family, the thin grasses of temperate regions, and broad-leaved tropical bromeliads each require a different method of twisting and braiding to be made into a basket. Although baskets were traditionally created to serve a utilitarian rather than an aesthetic purpose, the practice of basket making has evolved into an art. Artistic freedom allows basket makers a wide choice of colors, materials, sizes, patterns, and details.
Maybe some of you wonder, why suddenly I want to write about baskets.
This is one nice basket, commonly used in Malay wedding to give presents to either bride or groom.
This is a fruit basket, rather a nice one, I think.
This basket can be used to load a lot of things(multipurpose basket, snake charmer used to put snake inside )
This is rather special one. I miss having a baby in the house.(I got one story about baby in the basket, if anyone wants to know, you can ask me personally)
After seeing some examples of baskets, guess what I am going to write this time. This is still about basket. Some of you maybe heard this Malay saying, 'Masuk Bakul Angkat Sendiri'
Suddenly my group become quite famous with 'Kelab SS', or 'Kelab SSS'. This is one example of the Malay saying.
After attending the course in school on the 10th of October that day, what the woman said really make me think. The talk was given by Dr Fatanah Mohamed. She is a counselor in MU, ex-student of STF(Sekolah Tun Fatimah, one of the elite boarding school in JB). She got a master with GPA 4 flat.
Why do you think she told everybody about her achievements either in her studies or her carrier? Is she becomes a member of my Kelab already? If any of you attend any seminar or talk, the MC always introduce the speaker with her/his qualifications. Why do you think that it is neccesary to do that?
I never thought about having my own 'bakul'. Do you? What the lady meant by having your bakul was, you try to achieve as many thing as possible. If you do things, 'you must always be the best in the world', this one I really quoted from her.
For example, I am the best F6 maths teacher 'in the world', in ACS Klang. This is how we started fill in our bakul. If you are a student, you started fill in your bakul from now. Ask yourself, what you really love to do. If you are good in sport, then your bakul must be filled with something about sports. If you are good in academic, maybe you can start fill in your bakul, lets say, 5A for UPSR, 7A for PMR, 8A for SPM and 4 flat for STPM. Then you can continue filling in with dean's list, best students, and so on after you enter college.
Come on, every one must have some thing that you are good at. So you can start fill in your bakul now. Don't worry about your bakul different from your friend's one.
Don't stop fill in your bakul when you graduate, you can continue adding more stuff to your bakul.
Lets say, if you happen to be a Sergeant, be the best in the world, in Malaysia.
If you are a pilot, also be the beat pilot, or have your own aviation company.
Be the best engineer in the world.
The best lawyer in the world.
Don't stop now, continue fill in your bakul. And remember don't compare your bakul with anybody because you are special in your own way.
