With the tagline Qu Puteh, Qu Puteh, barulah putih, Datuk Seri Dr Hasmiza Othman has
certainly carved her name into the Malaysians consciousness. More popularly known as Datuk
Seri Vida, she has built her cosmetic and health products empire of Vida Beauty Sdn. Bhd. from
ground up. Her two biggest selling products are the Pamoga health drink and Qu Puteh skin
whitening cream.

Currently living in Ipoh, this Kelantan born entrepreneur and former teacher has been
involved in various activities to promote her products. She had sponsored entertainment
programmes such as the GegarVaganza and Anugerah Juara Lagu. Now, her latest venture
takes her into the world of sports. She has just inked a two-season sponsorship deal with the
Kelantan football team.

However, it is not all bed of roses for this 44 years old gutsy lady. She had lost two of her four
children in a 2013 fire of her home. Though undoubtedly sadden by this incident, this strongwilled lady continues to work hard to achieve great success.

Question 4
Read the text below.
Dinosaurs were animals that lived million of years ago. There were lots of different
types of dinosaurs little ones, big ones, fierce ones and shy ones. All dinosaurs lived on
land and they died out a long time ago. There are no dinosaurs living today.
It is thought that the first dinosaurs lived around 230 million years ago. They roamed
the Earth for the next 165 million years, before becoming extinct about 65 million years ago.
Dinosaurs lived all over the world. At that time, the weather was much hotter than it is
today. The word dinosaur means terrible lizards, even though dinosaurs werent lizards!
Lots of plant-eating dinosaurs swallowed their food without chewing. Instead, they gobbled
stones and pebbles, which stayed in their stomachs. When they swallowed food, the stones
helped to mash the food up, turning it into a pulp.
Early plant-eating dinosaurs did not eat fruit or grass none had appeared yet!
Instead, they ate plants called horsetails, ferns, cycad and conifer trees. Like reptiles today,
such as crocodiles and alligators, dinosaurs were covered in super-tough scaly skin. The
scales would have protected a dinosaur against the teeth and claws of enemies and the bites
of pests such as mosquitoes and flies.
About 65 million years ago, the dinosaurs became extinct. No one knows for sure
why this happened, but something HUGE must have taken place to affect all life on the
planet. It is thought that more than two-thirds of all living things died at the same time as the
dinosaurs, including sea creatures and plants.

And is he afraid of skeletons?
Not dad, not on your Nelly!

And hes always ready to prove it,
So why, when a spiders in the bath,
Does Mum have to come and remove it?

And things that scare most dads the most,
My dad could just defeat em,
