Puteri Munajjah & newly crowned WCM Teh De Zen powered Malaysia to a total of 10 medals (5 each) in the U-10 Girls.
Puteri Munajjah whom I always refer as ferocious tiger as she always look serious during the game. She contributed a total of 3 golds & 2 silvers. The 3 golds came from two individual events which are rapid & blitz where she became champion & team in the rapid events. As for the silver, the medals came from team event namely blitz & standard.
WCM Teh De Zen whom reminds me of my generation woman player namely WIM Siti Zulaikha. She has the determination & concentration skills. The way she able to play & sit throughout the standard event is not easy & seldom for a girl of 10 years old. She had contributed 2 gold medals & 3 silver medal to Malaysia while during the process obtaining her WCM (Woman Candidate Master) title. Her gold medals were from standard individual and rapid in the team events. One positive attitude I saw in her was she’s willing to fall & learn from her own mistakes.
Her 3 silver medals were from rapid individual & 2 from team events mainly blitz where she teamed up with her another cousin Teh Ming Min & standard.
Congratulations to both of you & keep up the good work!
