If you’ve noticed lately, there has been a big hoo-haa about teachers in the news. It appears to me that the public sees teachers as psychotic beings that live only to torment students. What ever happened to trusting teachers?
The public just keeps highlighting teachers faults. And the Ministry isn’t really doing much to help teachers, I mean help defend teachers. The Ministry would be the first to jump on the teacher instead of helping people understand the burden of teachers.
The Ministry dok sibuk bela nasib budak-budak, tapi nasib cikgu-cikgu yang dok kena maki dengan parents, siapa yang nak bela? Nak harap kat NUTP?
Controlling and disciplining kids is not as easy as what the media and Ministry portrays. Gone are the days where teachers had the power rotan and punish the kids. Gone are the days where students respected their teachers. Now teachers feel that they are being ridiculed. Now it’s the teachers who feel threatened in class. How the world has changed. Kids know that teachers are now under scrutiny and what teachers can and cannot do. One wrong move by the teachers, and they might end up in the principal’s room or worse, television.
They say that teaching is a noble job. But why aren’t teachers being treated with the respect that they deserve? Why are they being treated with such double standards. The Ministry talks about ‘menaikkan taraf profesion perguruan’, but all I see them belittling the profession.
Teachers are humans too. If they act out of character, there should be a logical reason for it.
If you find it difficult to teach your own kid, if your own kids drive you crazy sometimes, imagine what we teachers have to go through with 1000 students a day.
Teacher’s aren’t all bad or crazy, as kids aren’t all innocent.
If the Ministry can set up a hotline for students, why not set one up for teachers?
Pictures are up!! I have never been so pleased with my photos before, but this one.... I am just DAMN EXTATIC about them!!!
One thing that I am totally glad and happy about the wedding was the fact that I was surrounded by family and close friends. Everyone involved were friends, from the pengapit, to the MC, to the kompang boys, to the photographer, to the videoman, even the video slideshow was done by friends.
Everything felt so natural and comfortable. Rarely was there an awkward moment. Actually, it was sooo comfortable that I appeared to be tooo relaxed. Nmpk mcm tak serious...
Tapi, takpe. What's important was that we had fun. And I guess it shows in the pictures...
Kudos to Fadhil and Farrah!!!! Can't wait for the "Bertandang" pics..
Geezzz… Less than 2 weeks to go… and no internet access at home. Geramnye!!
Well, here I am at Starbucks, paying 25 bucks for lunch. Just for free internet access. Gee… sure have my priorities straight eh? Hahaha…... Terpaksa beb.
Yes… another 11 days to go. God I’m nervous. About what, I’m not sure.
Hmm… I had my bridal shower last Saturday. It was a blast!!! My uni friends organized it.. Totally surprised me. They had me guessing from the moment I got in the car. From the dodgy parking lot, to the dodgy staircase….
Rupe-rupenye, they took me karaoke-ing!! Best gile!!!! Got to live all my karaoke fantasies… hahahha…. And the cupcakes were beautiful!!!!
I loved every moment.. Wish I could have bridal showers ALL THE TIME!! Whahahahaha…..
You're a falling star, You're the get away car. You're the line in the sand when I go too far. You're the swimming pool, on an August day. And You're the perfect thing to say.
And you play your card, but it's kinda cute. Ah, When you smile at me you know exactly what you do. Baby don't pretend, that you don't know it's true. Cause you can see it when I look at you.
And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times It's you, it's you, You make me sing. You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.
You're a carousel, you're a wishing well, And you light me up, when you ring my bell. You're a mystery, you're from outer space, You're every minute of my everyday.
And I can't believe, uh that I'm your girl, And I get to kiss you baby just because I can. Whatever comes our way, ah we'll see it through, And you know that's what our love can do.
And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times It's you, it's you, You make me sing You're every line, you're every word, you're everything.
So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La
And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times It's you, it's you, You make me sing. You're every line, you're every word, you're everything. You're every song, and I sing along. Cause you're my everything. yeah, yeah
If I get another… ‘Eeee.. pengantin baru ni.’ Or a ‘ Eee… menghitung hari la pengantin kita ni’… or a ‘Mesti tak sabar kan’ Or any gross tales about the first night, details I DO NOT NEED TO KNOW, I am going to scream!!!
Do you know how gross it is when other (older) women start dropping double meanings in every thing that they say? Uugghh…. They’re boring old farts.. they’re not supposed to have a sex life. Hahah.. jahat aku.
Do you know how hard it is to find nice pink shoes?? Why is there suddenly a shortage of pink shoes in the world today? Biasanya tgk berlambak-lambak kat kedai, but bile aku nak beli.. takde pulak!!
And do you know how hard it is to find a nice, hantaran suitable black bag? Arrgghhh…. Shopping was never this hard!! What happened to the world?
Is boring the ‘in-thing’ now? It sure seems like it cause all the designs are just sooo boring.
Just found out something sweet today.
It seems that some of my students are planning a bridal-like shower for me. Hahah…. That’s sweet of them. Tgk la kalau menjadi. Kekadang ni bebudak ni ckp je lebih… but it’s the thought that counts kan?
A million and one thing has happened, but I just don’t seem to be inspired to write lately. Don’t know why… Chewah.. mcm nak tulis novel pulak nak kena inspire nih. Cheh.
Ok.. updates. Updates, updates.
Happy Teacher’s Day!!
Hehe…. Your’s truly was voted as ‘Guru Paling Sporting’ in the school. Chewah chewah chewah. Sporting could mean sooo many things you know, like I don’t give a rat’s ass what my students do asalkan tak ganggu hidup i, or I support you in everything that my students do. So it all depends lah. Eheh. When kids vote, it could mean a million things. Like this teacher, she got ‘Guru Paling Glamour’ award, in which I know it’s in a really sarcastic manner. Eheh… Basically she’s is NOT glamorous in that sense at all. Believe me.
Enough about that.
I never thought that handbag shopping would be sooo difficult. It is just so hard to find a bag that suits my many personalities. Itu nasib baik ada many personalities, so there would be many to choose from, kalau satu je personality? Mau seksa mencari yang satu tu? Ok… I’m talking gibberish here.
My maid’s gone. Yep… my life line at home has finished her contract and now is back in Indon. COME BACK!!!! I STILL NEED YOU!!!
Do you know how tiring and endless house work can be?!
Do you know just how messy my room can get in a single day??
Do you know how pampered and spoilt I have turned out to be?!?
Just got back from Melaka. Another meeting with the ministry. About the predicament I wrote about earlier, I discussed it with the person in charge… apparently he said that I’m a little bit too inexperienced to go to the Ministry. Then what do you call those bloody Pee-Tee-Dees (sorry pnut) yang masuk Kementerian? Are they all so experienced? Do they know what it’s like to be in school? Do they understand the situations in school to make decisions for us teachers? I DON’T THINK SO!!! So what makes them more qualified than me? I have a degree, I have gone through the government exams, I have gone through the interview, PLUS I have been in the system and experienced it for 5 bloody years. I think that puts me waaayyy above the Peeteedees in the Kementerian Pelajaran.
So anyway, as a counter offer (kot) he said that he has discussed that the teachers that are involved in this project are to be place in the Pejabat Pelajarang Daerah. So we won’t be in school anymore. Just about the same thing.. but less glamour. Hahah
Anyway…. I’m fat. Thought I’d just let you guys know.
Need to do something… again.
Ever seen a fat pengantin? Gonna see one soon!! Hahahahah
Tak update blog ke? Baby mcm mana? Heheheheh.......
Just got back from Pangkor. 5 day meeting with Bahagian Sumber Manusia (BSM) Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia. Ughh.... pening kepala. They’re doing this study on teachers and their teaching options (which subjects they specialize in). I won’t go into details on that.
In a nutshell, I was selected (because no one else wanted it) to be a part of the task force; together with 5 other teachers. This would mean that I’ll be going to Melaka in another 2 weeks to help them develop a system for this project. *sigh* Another week in a hotel.
Anyway, turns out, not only are they offering me to work with them in Melaka, seems like they’re offering me to be part of the task force permanently. Be a part of BSM and travel the country giving courses or talks to other teachers about the project.
And this could only mean that they’ll take me out from my school and therefore, I won’t be teaching, or see my kids anymore. How la?
Should I take this offer?
What have I got to lose?
List of Pros and Cons:
Good exposure / different surrounding
Focus on only one job (most likely administration)
... a 24 year old sexpot who oozes with witand charm. Known for her hearty and contagious laughter, a girl who holds true to the sign of the crab, hard on the exterior but soft and mushy on inside. A hopeless romantic who happens to have this wierd fascination for bottlenose cows. Aspires to look or be anything like her idol, Cameron Diaz and dreams of bagging herself a man as manly as Aragorn, as groovy as Justin Timberlake, as cute as Jason Mraz or as Malay as Anuar Zain ;p... or anyone will do...

Theoden: I would have you smile again... not grieve for those whose time has come.
Gandalf the White: All we have to decide is what to do with the time given to us.
Aragorn: I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of Men fail... when we forsake our friends, and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. This day, we fight!
