Let's Work Together During the MCO!

During this MCO , let's work together from Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm! We've been kept at home for almost 2 months now, many of us who are lucky enough to still have jobs are working from home. I don't know about you, but I don't find working from home conducive with a kid & chores screaming for your attention at any second. I feel alone working from home too.

"No problem", I thought. "I'll just change the settings in Logitech Options."

Free KBSM/KSSM Videos: Ensure Your Children Are Pandai During The MCO

**This post is sponsored by Pandai ** Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, the first priority must always be the safety and health of everyone in the country. Thus, all educational institutions are closed in an attempt to contain the global pandemic. Despite allowing for more quality time together with family, the continuously extended amount of free time children spend at home is at great cost to their education. Teachers and parents are not safe from the disruption caused by the pandemic either. Teachers are worried about their students’ progress while parents are at a loss in finding ways to ensure that the education of their children goes on as usual. In light of this situation, many institutions and organizations have created opportunities for teachers and parents to overcome this interruption. Here's one that is low cost, or better yet, FREE! It might just be the blessing that you're looking for! PANDAI VIDEOS - FREE ACCESS FOR ALL!
