Who says 'Nerdy Kids' are unPopular...!

I know a lot of kids who are 'nerds' in my daughter's Class of 3-Jati/2010, and they all tell the same story: there is a strong correlation between being Smart and being a Nerd, and an even stronger inverse correlation between being a nerd and being popular. Being smart seems to make you unpopular.
The main reason nerds are unpopular is that they have other things to think about. Their attention is drawn to books or the natural world, not fashions and parties. They're like someone trying to play soccer while balancing a glass of water on his head. Other players who can focus their whole attention on the game beat them effortlessly, and wonder why they seem so incapable.
But... not these kids..!
my daughter, Maymun Nalubega & her best friend - Fatin...
...the ever sweetgirl...Wanie...
Even if nerds cared as much as other kids about popularity, being popular would be more work for them. The popular kids learned to be popular, and to want to be popular, the same way the nerds learned to be smart, and to want to be smart: from their parents.
... the fun teenies -Queenie, Jessie & Baby@ Yvonne..

..Jonathan...very serious young man...!
...quiet but serious - Helmi....

... the bubbly - Nabil & Ariff @ Bob

Azrain @ Ajai.. what can I say....
...the nerds were being trained to get the right answers..,
the popular kids were being trained to please... (thats sad..!).
To all, Congratulations in getting straight 8As in PMR..
See you on Friday, Lunch on Aunty...!
