His mother had been teaching him the value of honesty and hard work since he was young. tough they were poor, his mother had always emphasized that the labors of hard wok were rewarding while dishonesty would only bring misfortune.

Seng Hui quickly turned away to leave the staffroom. He was shocked to see his History teacher standing here at the doorway. She had been observing him for about five minutes. She was pleased that Seng Hui had decided not to cheat. As a result, she offered to tutor him after school. He accepted her offer. He also did not hesitate to approach her for help in the other subjects.
