Guide: Online Registration for Standard One Intake 2019 / 2020

I have completed the online registration for standard one intake 2020 for my older boy last weekend. It wasn't as tedious as I thought it would be. Phew! I even have time to do screenshots while I was going through the process of filling up the registration form.

If you haven't done online registration for your children for Standard 1 intake 2019/2020, here's a step-by-step guide.

Step 1: 
Go to https://public.moe.gov.my/

Click on the "PENGGUNA BARU" button.

Step 2:
Fill up the form and click "Daftar" at the bottom to submit your registration.

After this step is done, you will be directed back to the homepage.

Now you can log in by keying in your IC number and password. Click "DAFTAR MASUK" after this.

Step 3:
Now click on the "Tahun 1 Pendaftaran/Penyemakan Permohonan" section.

Step 4:
For first time users, now click the "Permohonan Baharu --- Tidak pernah berdaftar" tab.

Step 5:
Now, key in your child's MyKid number and click "SEMAK".

Step 6: 
Now fill up the form with your child's particulars.

Step 7a:
Also fill up the health check form. At this step, please get ready your child's immunization record book.

Step 7b:
On the immunization info section, you will need to check the relevant vaccine and key in its corresponding date when vaccination was done.

Step 8a:
Now fill up your husband's details.

Step 8b:
Now fill up your own details followed by total household income.

Note: To key in corresponding IC number (whether the father's or mother's), please click on the "Carian No KP Penjaga Utama" line, type in the IC number, and click "Carian". You will be asked to click "Teruskan" if this is your first time using this registration system.

Step 9:
This is the most exciting part. You can now choose the type of school based on your state and province (daerah). You might need to do some Googling if you can't identify your daerah.

Then, pick the school that you want to enrol your child in and the estimated distance from your house to the school. To get the distance, try using Google Maps.

Step 10:
And you are almost done!

Step 11a:
Check through the entire "Perakuan" form. Make sure all details are keyed in correctly. You have maximum 3 attempts to do any Kemaskini (updates).

Step 11b: 

Step 12a:
Save this registration form as PDF so that you can print it out later.

Step 12b:
Save this health and immunization service consent form (if applicable) as PDF so that you can print it out later.

After this, within 14 days (must be before 30 April 2018), I need to go to the school that I want to enroll my boy in and bring along these documents:

  • Birth Certificate of child (original + copy) 
  • I.C. of parent/guardian (original + copy)
  • Marriage/divorce certificate (original + copy) 
  • Utility bills (electricity, water, assessment bill) under parent's/guardian's name for address verification (original + copy)
  • Self-addressed standard-sized envelope with stamp affixed (RM1 to be safe)

I'm still around.....

I may not be blogging actively.
But I'm micro-blogging actively.

You can find me posting more frequently on fb.com/joycescapade and instagram.com/joycescapade

Anyway, I will still be blogging amidst my busy schedule of working from home while taking care of my two kiddos.

I will see you around, cheers!

Strawberries dipped in chocolate

A few afternoons ago, after gotten some work done, I walked past an MBG fruit store while I was going to get my car. Their strawberries were on sale, i.e. RM10 for two packs. Each pack was 250g and the strawberries looked pretty plump and juicy. So I bought two packs. As I walked towards my car, the idea of making chocolate-dipped strawberries came up. I was pretty sure my 5yo would love this idea!

There we go! Milk chocolate bar and fresh strawberries.

I used this method to melt the chocolate bar: Add about an inch of water in a pot and bring to simmer. Break the chocolate bar into chunks and put them into a heatproof bowl (this bowl has to be bigger than the mouth of the pot with hot water). Put the bowl in the mouth of the pot, without touching the water. Stir the chocolate chunks occasionally as they soften and until all of them melt to your desired consistency.

My 5yo is a big fan of fresh strawberries.


.....and eat!

He was so happy!

Get Lost, Naturally at The Sticks Eco-Glamping Retreat, KKB

What is Glamping?

According to the dictionary, glamping is "a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping. Glamping is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature—without foregoing any of life's luxuries".

Wikipedia says, "glamping is a portmanteau of glamor and camping and describes a style of camping with amenities and, in some cases, resort-style services not usually associated with "traditional" camping. Glamping has become particularly popular with 21st-century tourists seeking the luxuries of hotel accommodation alongside the escapism and adventure recreation of camping."

Get Lost, Naturally at The Sticks

According to TimeOut KL's article about glamping sites in Malaysia, when your perfect weekend getaway includes nature, but also the modern luxuries of everyday life, there's glamping. The Sticks at Kuala Kubu Baru is listed as a great venue if you want to check in for an off-the-grid weekend retreat in the jungles to experience eco-glamping.

My husband and I brought our two boys (4yo and 1yo) for a one-night stay at The Sticks after Christmas last year (2017). The Sticks, located at Lot 213, Jalan KKB - Fraser's Hill, Kuala Kubu Baru, Selangor (Google Maps) is a full-board retreat so all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy their delicious servings of home-cooked food. You can also go for jungle trekking and whitewater rafting or just chill by the river before lazing around in hammocks or tendok (half tent, half pondok or hut in Malay).

What did we do?

We didn't come prepared with gears for jungle trekking and whitewater rafting. So, we just went for casual walks around the retreat.

Chilling by the river.

Strolling around the retreat with the boys.

Where did we stay?

We stayed at the Serengeti Tent (a tent on a wooden platform, with attached bathroom).

What did we eat?

English Breakfast

Home-cook Style Lunch

BBQ Dinner
