Energy can be obtained from two major sources, one is the renewable source and the
other is the non-renewable source. The energy from the sun, wind and heat from inside Earth
which is termed as geothermal energy, are all renewable forms of energy, that is, they are
constantly being supplied. These forms of energy do not diminish through the years.

On the other hand, energy from coal, oil and natural gases will diminish through time
and is referred to as non-renewable energy. Coal, oil and natural gases are also known as
fossil fuels. These are popular at present
time because
mining these sources is cheaper than

Questions 26-31 are based on the following passage.


1 Patricia Zahara Ariffin, 71, is a body painter. She paints pictures on peoples
faces and hands at the National Zoo. Visitors will definitely notice her while
waiting to take the train ride at the starting point. She will be there, with her
forearm stretched out to show off the various animals she has painted on her
skin. Get your face painted, this sprightly lady will say to persuade the 5
children. Wont it be cute to have a little dolphin on your hand? she will
suggest to them. Sometimes, she would be mobbed, surrounded by those eager
children to have her masterpiece on their skins. Sometimes, she sits alone
under her large umbrella with her tubes of water-based paints and brushes.

Patricia is not a professional artist. Art critics describe her paintings of owls,
eagles, tigers and fishes as cute. Nothing more. This is not a big deal to the
English native who came here after her marriage to a Malaysian in the 1950s.
After all, she only started face- and-hand painting in March when the Malaysian
15
Nature Society needed something novel to attract the crowd to come to their
Floral Exhibition in Tanjung Tuan, Melaka.

Patricia can always be seen at the train ride station, come rain or shine, on
most Saturdays, because painting has always been her passion. Besides that, it
gives her happiness to see that the fruits of her labour help the animals in the
20
zoo. Its not so much the money, insisted the former headmistress, who
revealed that all proceeds are given to the zoo for the animals upkeep. I have
seen some of the children jumping up and down after getting their faces painted
and that gives me the most satisfaction, she added.

Patricia never feels bored telling about the awkward moments she has 25
experienced. The challenges as a face-and-hand painting artist also thrill her.
Some people have slippery skin which makes it very hard for the paint to stick
so you have to apply thicker layers. Another problem is hairiness which makes it
impossible for any work to be done, she said. Unless they shave, there is no
way the paint would stick. One guy proposed that I do a painting on his neck
5
30
which was about the only spot that didnt have hair, she laughed.
Listening to her stories, one may think Patricia has never experienced any sad
moment. On the contrary, she spent the last three years of her life grieving. That
was when her husband, the late Jamil Ariffin, passed away due to bone cancer. 35
She refused to meet people or take part in social activities. Later, she came to
her senses and realized that this was not the way to live. Being old does not
mean that you should give up an active life. Many old people lose their
6 flexibility when they are not active for a long period of time, she added. She
later joined the Malaysian Nature Society.

SULIT As a member of the Malaysian Nature10Society, Patricia tries to take part in as


many activities as she can. She goes bird-watching, looks out for frogs, snakes
and other reptiles and follows the marine group for snorkelling trips in Pulau
7 Tioman. She also supports the World Wildlife Fund For Nature. Recently, she
went to Terengganu and Melaka to patrol parts of the beaches which have been
45
declared turtle sanctuaries.
Patricia is asthmatic and uses an artificial hip. Despite that, she is an active
volunteer with the National Association of Strokes of Malaysia. According to
her, being old helps as the stroke patients at the physiotherapy class she 50
attends, feel encouraged with her around. This golden girl who goes line
dancing to keep fit, has visited many countries. In the near future, she plans to
visit India to see the Taj Mahal. I want to see the monument of love before it
crumbles, she said.
