I Am a Lotus Eater

Lotus Eater by William Somerset Maugham.
One of the short stories in Form 4 syllabus.

Today was my first time teaching this.

Browsed thru the net to find out the meaning of 'Lotus Eater'
Then found this:

  1. Lotus-eater or Lotus Eater Greek Mythology. One of a people described in the Odyssey who lived in a drugged, indolent state from feeding on the lotus.
  2. A lazy person devoted to pleasure and luxury.

Lotus Eaters redirects here. For other uses, see The Lotus

In Greek mythology, the Lotophagi (Greek Λωτοφάγοι, lotus-eaters) were a race of people from an island
near North Africa dominated by "lotus" plants. The lotus fruits and flowers were the
primary food of the island and were narcotic, causing the people to sleep in peaceful

Want to know something?

Well, I sat for my SPM 11 years ago. 

Each time while waiting for the next paper to commence, my friends and I would go to
one small pond in my school compound and picked some lotus seeds to munch on.
They were so addictive!
We literally feasted on lotus and w
e were soooooo happy and to the extent couldn't be bothered by the Exam.

Now I know.....
We were drugged....
That explains our STRANGE happiness
And my 'super good' result...
I must go tell my ex-classmates now...
Bye Bye

Pleading All Teachers to Respond

OSomething happened yesterday during Form 5's graduation.
I don't know where and how to start.
It's a bit sensitive......
Well the high school where i'm teaching uses CGPA or pointers instead of normal grades.
Once the Form 5 students got their trial result, they will have graduation day.
Okay, here's the issue ...when the system says u cant grad, means u can't.

But these kids are too young to be 'punished' like this.
They're just form 5 (17 years old).

What would u feel if u were not qualified to graduate but u still have to go up the stage,
with ur below 2.00 CGPA displayed on the white screen and then u r d only one not wearing the robe 'jubah konvo'?
What would u feel?

Plus, parents r watching.

What would you do, if ur students came to you and ask "Teacher, kiteorang tak nak naik boleh tak?
(Teacher, can we not go up?)"
My eyes teared when i heard this.
As a teacher, it broke my heart to break theirs.

What would you do if u r their parents?

Yes, they did wrong things.
They screwed up in their exams.
They were also the black sheeps of the school.
But there are some other ways to punish them.

Overheard someone said "Let them go up and learn their lesson. Serve them right"

What? By humiliating them?

We teachers stood up for them.
We didn't want them to go up.
Other school with the same system give students choice to go up or not to go 

I was once a black sheep in school.
But I was given a chance.
I thought I don't deserve one.
But a teacher gave me one.
Here I am today.
Because of that chance I was given, I am a teacher myself.

I am living my teacher's legacy.
Teachers should give students a chance when they think they don't deserve one.

That chance will create a miracle.

Trust me.
I am a miracle.

They finally went up.
Three of them.
All gentlemen ( i don't like calling them 'boys')
Amazingly their friends who graduated gave them support
and clapped the loudest clap
and cheered for them.

Ironically, none clapped for those who graduated.

That's what friends are for.
To support and To electrify...

We teachers are here ....
To Inspire

What say you?


Somewhere in Puchong...

Lifehouse - Everything

This is an Evangelical skit video.
Non-Christians can see it in a different way.
The Man in White represents God.
While Christians, The Man in White represents Jesus.

Be open minded folks.
This applies to everyone with Faith.
An awesome and touching skit.
With Lifehouse's 'Everything' as the theme song.
This song also appeared in one of Smallville's Episode.

A rock band from America.
Once popular with their song 'Hanging by a Moment'.
My church's creative team did this same skit in church a few weeks ago.

Pray that it'll minister to everyone watching.
Be blessed =D

If u're blessed by this video,
Put it in ur blog and pass it on.

Celcom Broadband - Highly Recommended

Got myself Celcom Broadband last Friday.
School's Wireless always have problem.

I don't have to worry.
I can browse when others can't *evil laugh

U want one?
Then u should have RM600 in your hands.

RM499 (purchase ur modem) + RM68(Advance payment)

Monthly bill: RM68 (for basic user)

No regret.
Except for one thing.
Rural area means no 3G.

Then you have to depend on GPRS which is super SLOW!
Well, better than not connected at all right?
