教学趣事 (一)


那天如往常一样是个礼拜四,我便到G班检查他们的Nilam。 *Nilam每星期交一次, 一次三页            本校规定如没做功课者要被处罚 *因本校有申请所以可以鞭手掌心再加上校长规定一年一定要做完一本nilam。


 A: 你的nilam leh? 为什么没有交给我?

慢慢的从书包拿出他的紫色nilam 簿子, 我呆了。以经超过半年了才做不到五页他又常常不来。他便升出他的手准备。


B:知道。没有做和交nilam. 老师你打吧。


在打开瓶盖的时候, 那粘满油的瓶盖掉到那同学的裤子前端,刚好在尴尬部位。这时。。。

B: 老师你干嘛?我的内裤都湿了!

这时安静的班便充满了笑声。。。本应同情他就连我听到他的反应都忍不到两秒也大笑了起来! 哈哈哈哈。。。


之后班上又回复平静。那同学便拿着我的pas keluar 遮着他的裤子向厕所嘲去,从此不再敢不交功课了。

Qi Chao, Vietnam :)

          I always believe that there is no man who was born down to earth a strong person. Again, this trip indeed proves this line. This trip to Vietnam has given me a lot of eye opening experiences as well as having a feeling of empathy towards others. My cousin and I, together with other two friends had decided to go for a trip last April. My parents questioned and doubted on our choice to choose Vietnam as our destination at first because this country is far from developing and their language is a barrier to us. Luckily, we still proceeded with our plan if not we would not have experienced something different than trip to other metropolis cities. 

        The ravages of poverty had taken a toll on them. Children here are so much fortunate than those there especially at Sapa, a national park which homes the indigenous people which is also 3km away from the border of Vietnam and China. We had taken a train overnight from Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam to Lao Cai before taking a shuttle van to Sapa. This is our 3rd day in Vietnam. I will talk about other destination here later on as this is the most interesting part during our trip. Thanks to our travel agency, "Vega Travel", we were able to stop by at a local hotel to shower before starting our route up to the mountain at Sapa. Before reaching the hotel, we were being tailed and chased with loud racket by a group of indigenous ladies. Thinking the shuttle van might have hit one of them, we were shocked and our mind were blank. Then, aligned from the van, only we came to notice that the reason they made such a noise was because they wanted to sell their handmade stuffs. Phew, they even made an effort to follow us all the way to the mountain. I was amazed by them because they actually knew how to speak in English but got annoyed after a while since a group of them kept on bugging us by repeatedly asking "Where do you come from?", "How old are you" and "How are you". The purpose of them doing this was to bug you so that you would give up and bought something from them. Later on I really find this phrase "Kong, Come On" which means "No, Thank You" useful especially during shopping. The jungle trekking took up 6 hours plus and we reached the Homestay around 4 pm. The host of the Homestay is Mr. Lam. I really like the place very much as it is facing a river with a hanging bridge on top. The scenery is very magnificent. We also came to know his other 2 kids, Lun and Liu. What make me more surprising was that the older child is much more matured compared to any other child in M'sia that I had ever encountered before. Before the meal was served, without being asked, he scooped the rice into bowls and washed the dishes after the guests had finished. What an obedient boy, I would say. After spending a night at the cooling Homestay, we headed down the mountain and stopped by at the shabby little sundry shop taken a meal prepared by our tour guide, Tu. After that, we took another overnight train back to Hanoi. Journey to Sapa is the most unforgettable itinerary during our trip.

         The second sightseeing place that I like is Halong Bay. It has been nominated as one of the nature wonders of the world. To reach the destination, we had to take a pick up van similarly from Hanoi through Vega Travel. The journey took almost 4 hours and we all ended up starving since we ordered the wrong breakfast. Due to culture difference, what we thought sandwiches came out a hard bun which served together with two scrambled eggs and a ham. I ended up taking only a few bites before hoping into the pick up. Personally speaking, it would be more fun if I knew how to swim. Other than indulging in enjoying the incredible nature creation of our Lord, people like me could only join in with the tour guide, Chook for kayaking. I also think that it would be perfect for couples since the interior decoration is romance based with folded couple napkin swans and paintings with love. Since we took the one and a half day trip, the cruise also stopped by at the Tip Top Mountain early in the morning and the light exercise climbing up to the top of the mountain refreshed us from our sleep and enabled us to have a 360 degrees of the bay.

       We then went back to the hotel early in the morning while contacting our free tour guide who brought us around Hanoi City. What we needed to pay was her taxi fare and meals. The service provided was great. Our guide was a lovely second year university girl called Niah. She speaks fluent English and was really enthusiastic in explaining the history of the sightseeing places as we spent more time for gaining more knowledge on this country by visiting the Ho Chin Min's Museum, Mausoleum  and the Temple of Literature. Speaking of guilt, we hardly remembered the things that she told us since we were once lousy in History during studying times. Thanks to her, we also had a great lunch at a nice and affordable dining place called 'Quan An Ngon' before heading to take a taxi for souvenir shopping.  
      We really had a great time in Vietnam. It was really a trip of experiencing different cultures, food, people and language.

Life of a teacher

After 9 months of long waited time, I finally got my posting letter. I do not know weather it was my luck or the other way round. I was posted to SMK Medamit, Limbang. Out of all my 25 coursemates I got the furthest school.

God did not treat me bad HE sent angels to help me up. I was lucky to have my juniors; Mon Lin and Elsie around in Limbang. With 2 big luggages and a laptop bag, I went to Miri airport and took another transit MASWINGS flight to Limbang. It was my first time taking a Maswings flight. The journey was not that bad. The flight even had a video safety demostration.

Mon Lin and her dad picked me up and I stayed at her nice,huge house for a couple of days. The days cheered me up since her family is a bit like mine. Her parents are blessed with all daughters too. I feel a bit sorry for bothering her family.

On 29th January, I went to have a look and to clean my quarters before I went to report duty. I was surprised to know that the school does not have water supply. It uses gravity feed as water supply. Mind you this school is a bit weird in terms of getting its water. If it rains that means the school would not have water for that particular day. For my case, it rained for 2 weeks almost every evening so I did not get any water for 2 weeks. Thanks to the teachers that already settled down and who stored water and with the help from students I was able to get some water for bathing and cleaning purposes.

Finally, I got my car on 12th February. I drove all the way from Miri-Brunei-Limbang. It was a nice experience to drive at a foreign country. I did passed by Ah Sze's place but couldn't stop to meet her up since there was an uncle following me to Limbang. However, driving a car to Medamit is a tedious thing to do since I will have to play 'hide and seek' with the holes on the roads from Limbang town to school. Eventually, I got myself sick not even a month arriving at Limbang. LOL!

That's all from me. Just want to update this long sleeping blog. Hope that everyone is going fine too!

New year,New Me...

Firstly, let me wish everyone happy new year first. I wish Everyone the best! Just like before I am aging one year again LOL (was giggling in my heart when I wrote this mainly because of what my friend said in our new year conversation about us - 25 years old. Unemployed.Single...Pathetic and she started to LOL...). The beginning of 2012 isn't any different for me but what is different for me is that this year I celebrated it with a bunch of friends instead of family.

I think I have started to adapt to my recent life. I start to have my breakfast,lunch or dinner alone outside. I shop alone. Go and see doctor alone. These and that are things that I would rather do with friends and family once ago. There is something I cannot believe that happens to me too. Approaching the end of 2011,I have eventually built up a habit of waking up early. Is this what people always think of if you are growing older you will wake up early in the morning? >.<

Last, Hello 2012...I wish YOU are a GOOD one :DD

Just take this as new Experience lar...

I just came back from ITS (International Tuition School) with my brain cells level decreases. The purpose of me going there is to go 4 an interview for the 'Teacher Post'. I was shocked to find out that the interview required me to take a written test. OMG~ ITS is really efficient and professional when it comes to these. The test was kind of hard to me since it has been almost half a year I did not come across with the bombastic words other than those I read from novels.

I had a 'nice chat' with the principal just now. Instead of asking me much about my interest in teaching...bla...bla...he asked about my teaching experience in KL and so on...he also describes us as the 'little dots' in BPG eyes >.<

In short, I am not going to expect much from this interview LAR...haish, all this because of the delayed of posting. I am still blur and unsure of what I did just now so I went to Starsbucks to claim my free frappucino by using the free coupon that my mom gave me.

Heaven is for Real

Have you ever wonder how does heaven look like? Perhaps this book can provide you with the visual images of heaven in the perspective of a pastor named Todd Burno. This book was written by him on behalf of his 4 years old son; Colton Burno who passed away in 3 minutes and his description on his trip back to heaven and back due to rupture in appendix.

I came across this book through my dad who have been searching for it in Popular last 2 week when he came back from the States. According to him, his pastor in San Francisco mentioned about the synopsis of this book and it amuses him on the way the little boy told the public on his travel to the world of our heavenly father. I finished the book in 2 days since it is quiet a light reading due to the story-telling kind of writing.

I heart the way the little boy described Jesus. He said "Jesus has a rainbow horse..." At the same time he puts his hand on his left shoulder, move it across his body down ;" his clothes were white, but it was purple from here to here and he had markers on his palms and both feet." He added "I was scared and Jesus hold me on his laps". Later on the little boy picturised vividly how he met his late grandpa and his unborn sister which his mom never mentioned her existence on top as well as other bible characters like John the baptist and Angel Gabriel. The story is accompanied by the verses in the bible too:)

This is a really nice book and I give 2 thumbs up for it :) I strongly recommend it to those who doubt on heaven and those who are curious about it
