Why play foul?
Why people I know?
Why my family?

Where's the love?

So help me Jesus...help us...
Have mercy on the kids

Too much to bear...
Break this heartbreaking curse God!
Please break it!

Flaws and All

I'm a train wreck in the morning
I'm a bitch in the afternoon
Every now and then without warning
I can be really mean towards you

I'm a puzzle yes indeed
Ever complex in every way
And all the pieces aren't even in the box
And yet you see the picture clear as day

I don't know why you love me
And that's why I love you
You catch me when I fall
Accept me, flaws and all
And that's why I love you
And that's why I love you
And that's why I love

I neglect you when I'm working
When I need attention I tend to nag
I'm a host of imperfection
And you see past all that

I'm a peasant by some standards
But in your eyes I'm a queen
You see potential in all my flaws
And that's exactly what I need

I don't know why you love me
And that's why I love you
You catch me when I fall
Accept me, flaws and all
And that's why I love you
And that's why I love you
And that's why I love you

Don't know why you love me
And that's why I love you
Catch me when I fall
Accept me flaws and all
And that's why I love you
And that's why I love you
And that's why I love you
You, you, you

Happy Teachers Day Malaysian Educators!

Today is the day when all teachers in Malaysia would hear their students wishing them
'Happy Teachers Day teacher =D. I love you"

The history behind it is the announcement of Razak's Report 1956.

Here's something cute to share with all you educators out there.
This song might be sung by Indonesian kids but the lyrics are beautiful, sweet and simple.

Terima Kasih Guruku

pagiku cerahku
matahari bersinar…
ku gendong tas merahku di pundak…

slamat pagi semua
ku nantikan dirimu
di depan kelasku menantikan kami..

guruku tersayang
guru tercinta
tanpamu apa jadinya aku…
tak bisa baca tulis
mengerti banyak hal..
guruku terima kasihku…

nakalnya diriku kadang buatmu marah…
namun segala maaf kau berikan..

guruku tersayang …
guru tercinta tanpamu apa jadinya aku…
tak bisa baca tulis mengerti banyak hal…
guruku terima kasihku…

Oh ya, World's Teachers Day is on the 5 October.
And that's my BIRTHDAY!

To all my fellow colleagues & ex-colleagues, HAPPY TEACHERS DAY!
To my teachers
[i do not like calling them my ex coz they are forever my teachers=)]
God Bless All of You =D.
Thank You for all you've done.

*i'm counting my teachers day gifts now....=p

The Day Where Stupidity Meets Righteousness

By now, everyone should know that I'm an English Language teacher.

Concluded the lesson ...

Bell rang....

Teacher : Thank You class

Students : Thank You Teacher

One of the students (a boy) came to the teacher

Student : Cikgu esok cikgu free tak masa rehat?

Translation: Teacher are you free tomorrow during recess?

Teacher : I’m not sure yet. Why?

Student : Saya langsung tak fahamlah cerita ‘The Pearl’ nie teacher. Satu pun tak faham.

Translation: I don’t understand this ‘The Pearl’ story teacher. Not a single thing.

Teacher : Not even a single thing?

Student : Ya

Translation: Yes

Teacher : Why didn’t you tell me when we were doing the lesson few weeks ago?

I did ask whether you understand or not, didn’t I?

I did ask those who have problems to come and see me personally, didn’t I?

You should have told me then.

Exam is next week and you only tell me that

You don’t understand the story now?!


Student : Sebab cikgu ajar dalam Bahasa Inggeris sebab tu lah saya tak faham

Translation: I can’t understand because you taught in English

Teacher : &%$&@$!^^@!*()&)!!!!! (for 2 minutes)

What does he expect?

Of course I teach in English coz it's English Language class....

Don't tell me I should teach English using Tamil language...(T_T)v

If you were an English teacher...what would you do?

By the way, I am known with my ‘SPEAK IN ENGLISH IN MY CLASS’ reputation.

Obviously, this boy doesn’t give a damn ....

Air Asia: The Curse of the Tune Hotel

Labours Day holiday was officially a getaway for me.
I had a ‘Jalan-Jalan Cari Makan Trip’ to Penang with my family.

3 days 2 Nights.
1st night stayed in Butterworth and in Penang for the 2nd night.
The highlight of this trip was of course as I’ve mentioned
....Food Glorious Food!!!!!!!!!!!1

Remember my entry condemning Air Asia last year?
Well, consider this as the SEQUEL of that entry...

We’ve heard how ‘EVERYBODY CAN FLY’ using Air Asia.
We’ve heard how they can deceive their customers by luring us with this tag line
‘FLY TO __________ FOR FREE’ and we could end up paying more than RM100++.
We’ve heard how we should buy our tickets few months prior to the trip date
so that we can get
‘super cheap’ ticket.
Later, we’ve heard that they have hotels and they proudly name them ‘TUNE HOTELS’

However...little that we know that the hotels’ booking system is exactly the same as the flights’.
First come first serve basis.
The earlier you book, the cheaper price you’ll get.
And in the website.....Muaxs! Marvelous!
The rooms look superb! Superb! Superb!

Unfortunately, we didn't book early enough that we had to pay quite an amount of money for our rooms....
Yes, we reserved 5 Air Asia’s Tune Hotel rooms.

Okay...are you ready for this?:

1. Upon arrival we were told that only one car could park at the parking lot
(what? We reserved 5 rooms and only one car could go in?)
2. The lobby is pathetic
3. Went to our rooms and found out that:
a. they have air-cond b. they have hair dryer
c. a queen sized bed (not friendly to those who are 5’8)
d. they have ceiling fans
e. no towels
f. no shampoo
g. no shower gel
h. half transparent bathroom door
i. there’s Wifi
j. there are advertisements all over the room including the toilet
k. no wardrobe only a railing and 2 hangers and...just see the pics and you’ll know4. With a little disappointment, I turned on the air-cond and.....it wasn’t working!
5. I tried the hair dryer and it wasn’t working as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
6. I never knew that we had to pay extra to use the air-cond, hair dryer and Wifi!!!!!!!!!!!!
7. Air-con charge: RM13++ for 12 hours and RM20++
8. If you want towel, you’ll have to pay RM15 to rent it!

Yeah...it was our fault.
We didn’t read the hotel description given in the website.
But still...
This pay-as-you –use system sucks!
5-star sleeping experience at a 1-star price?
Such an irony...

Tune Hotel of Jalan Burmah, Penang had successfully made me sinful
due to excessive cursing ....

If my 1st entry on Air Asia tag line was: Everybody Can Wait
The tag line for this one would be: Everybody Can Curse

Damn Air Asia!

*ad next to the bathroom door

*ad in the toilet

*ad at the bathroom door

*ceiling fan's ad

*this is the ceiling fan

*ad outside our room

*1 hr 00 min left for air-cond and hair dryer (not paid)

*mini queen size bed

*pay-to-use air-cond

*see thru bathroom door -censored

*ad right in front of of our room

*I'm impressed!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Still deciphering

All my life I have always enjoyed holiday.
A teacher have always been envied by her non-teacher friends.
Because she has more than 100 days holi-DAYS a year.
Tell me about it.
I am a teacher.
So I know.

It's school holiday now.
1 week.
For the first time in my whole life....
I am not excited at all!

Everybody went back to their hometown.
I am left all alone here.
I have lots to do.
Well, that's not a good reason for not going back.

I'm tired.
I do miss my friends and family in KL.
I do miss them.
Only God knows how I miss them.

I've done a lot of thinking this few days.
And somehow I'm stuck when it comes to 'HOME'.
I have had one entry about home a few years ago in my old blog.
The same old question still haunts me.
Where is my home?

I have been missing the feeling of home since dad passed.
Then it became worst when my family moved to another state.
There goes my hometown.

How in the world can I call a place that I've never known my 'HOME'?
Yes, I do visit my mom and sisters but there is no home anywhere for me.
The only thing left in my hometown is my Dad's grave and all the memories I had with daddy.

Some say, 'Home is where you are understood'
Some even say 'Home is where your heart is'
Small kids will definitely say 'I want to go home..I want mummy and daddy'
Mummy and Daddy are their home
I know where I am understood, where my heart is, where my mummy and where my daddy is...
But the problem is....none of that places makes me feel home.
Not even the place where I am sitting now!
The irony is, up to now, whenever I dream of my family,
I always dream of us in our old house back in Labuan.
The house that we rented back in 1988 - 1996.

I guess I'm not the only one having such dreams.
Probably because those were the happiest days of our lives.

Sometimes, I'm blaming dad for 'leaving' us too soon.

Somehow, when I thought of all the orphans who never had moms and dads,
I do envy them coz they'll never get to miss having the feeling of being home coz they never had one.

On the other hand, I'm thankful I had one.

What say you?

I'm still deciphering...
Deciphering adulthood...


Like a Rockstar

It's been a while since I last posted something that can be digested by you.
Been busy lately.
Nothing much happened for the past few months.
Except for me being 3 tones darker......*blegh
There goes my whitening products....
Blaming it on the sports day last week....
Same day they announced SPM result.
But who cares....we won the whole sport.
Our team won!
We are the champion!
Who's the teacher?
I say....who's the teacher?
As long as I am the teacher...I will make sure that my team embraces victory forever and ever..and ever...

Will you ever believe me if I said I can run?
Had it not been for the desperation due to lack of female teachers in our team,
I wouldn't know I could run that fast.
It was unbelievable!
This proves it....

*Please read the following sentence Phua Chu Kang way...
Silver medal I tell you!

Physically stressed and exhausted right now.
But my soul still rocks like a rockstar.....huhu!

What was this entry about?
Oh ya....
To congratulate my students for their super achievement in their SPM

*behold are the top achievers posing for local press

Dear students,
Go....go sail the ocean of ambition,

And I pray that you will harbour at the port of success.
Been there, done that....
I know it'll be tough.
But y'all will survive somehow =).
It's just that
Y'all still have a long way to go dearie...

Dear readers,

Y'all will be reading more from me soon....

Thousand apologies for my absence
