Gosh, I thought I was one of the toughest people to get any infection easily but I guess my anti-body is not that strong anymore. I have to take some supplement or something to get me going tough again. Well, if that ever going to work la kan. haihhh.
So, I'm not feeling well. The best people to be around me right now are my good girlfriends. They are being very nice to me and I'm glad to have them around, especially when I'm sick, they are always there to cheer me up and willing to send me to the clinic. Thank you guyz! You know who you are. *wink*
And I'm thinking, so far I have so many girlfriends to compare with the boy-friends. This is pretty fun actually. And I love my girlfriends!
This probably happens because I came from all girls school. And and *coughcough*...never mind about that. hehe.
The cool thing about having girlfriends, we won't have any problems in hugging each other and especially times like this, I need as much hugs as possible. :(
I miss my family actually.....
However, I have to be strong. I admit I'm a spoil child, but right now, I'm trying my best to stand on my own. My family are far away, and I have to be independent.
This is not going to be easy. Right now, I fell sick but this is not going to stop me from doing my routine . And since I'm doing my practicum now, I think I need to be more decisive. I have to be determine to achieve something. And after all, I'm the role model for my students now. So, I need to behave.
Wait, I was talking about my girlfriends lah, see I've melencong. teehee.
Owh yeah, I don't mind to be friends with many girlfriends, but I'M STRAIGHT okay!
As I was looking at the students running during the recess time, I wonder how are the future of these students. Most of them are Chinese, and I'm here teaching these kids.
I feel very awkward at first, not to be a racist, as the one Malaysia mood is in the air. I've never been before in the circle of other races. So, I never knew how to deal with them.
This is my first time to be in the groups where everyone is sepet. Well, it's not that there's no Malays and Indians but Chinese are the majority here.
As a teacher, we should know well about what we should do which is to educate the future generations. Without complaining, we have to because this is what we have chosen. And I think I'm in the right path.
The taxi driver once told us, how proud should we be, to become an English teacher in a Chinese school. And I have to agree with him 100%.
People might not know what we have been through everyday., the challenges we are facing in educating them.
These Chinese kids, most of them are not from very highly-educated family because if they are, they wont be there, they would probably be in more standard secondary school.
The problem with these kids is THE LANGUAGE. They are good in speaking Chinese but they are very weak in Bahasa Melayu. So imagine, we're here to teach them English?
What should we (the trainee English teachers) do?
We have tried body language where our hands and face expressions are used to the max! That's why we are very tired every time we finished our classes.
I guess I better hit the sack. There are still a lot of things to write here but I'm too tired now.
Owh yeh, I have to teach Pendidikan Seni tomorrow. Argh! I hate it! I mean, I hate doing something which basically I have no idea of what to do, it's not even my minor! I can't just neglect the students (that's no good), I mean I can just go inside the class and ask the students to draw whatever they want because I can't guide them with drawings, it's simply because I can't draw. How can I teach them! I'm crying silently. T_T
So, basically, I have nothing to do and that's why I brought along my lappie today.
The cool thing is, I can facebook-ing here in the staff room! teehee! Well, it's not really a staffroom because it's more like a textbook room. We don't mind as long as we're happy. huhu.
So here we go, I'm thinking, I'm in part 7 now, and there's another semester ahead. After that we'll be graduating. InsyaAllah.
I never have a solid plan for my future but I guess I'm pretty sure that I want to become an educator as in the way to contribute to my beloved country. We owe our country so much, aren't we? So, why not do something in order to appreciate it. I love you Malaysia!
Some of my friends are busy thinking of getting married already and some even planned to get married in the near future.
There's a new teacher here told me that marrying at young age is not fun. So, she advised us not to get married at early age. And I take it as a good thing and it made me feel so much better. phew! haha.
The thing is, it's still a long way to go.
And I don't want to fall in love in this near future. It's simply because I know how it hurts and I don't want to go through it all over again.
I don't mind getting married late, if it takes for me to be happy. There's no point of having someone special (yeah right!) but I'm still suffering. Been there, done that.
Been pretty busy with the practicum and stuff and of course laziness gene! haha.
Let's cut the crap. I've been doing a little "research" on handbags. The answer is only one word, it is CHANEL!
A Chanel bag is the only thing that I've be dreaming, dying to own......in my dream!
So, I bought new handbag and new clutches. And this year, I'm going to have loads of new bags and clutches since my mind can't stop thinking of having a collection of bags and clutches especially!
My parents won't be happy about this. But I always believe that these babies are really my happiness at the moment. They are my ultimate happiness, since my family are far way from me. Well, don't get me wrong, I'm not staying abroad or something.
Other than bags, I'm thinking to have new blazers. I'm thinking of the cool design where there are beads on the shoulders. I've found it but I should be patient not to just buy because I might find something cooler than that later on. Or maybe I should just buy? Find another one, just buy it too?
And I keep telling myself, "Money doesn't just grow on tree, Durrah! So spend wisely!"
Don't worry, I AM planning my financial right now, ehehe. I mean after posting this post, or maybe later on, when I'm free, when I feel bored, or maybe next week? Erk....
It was my first day at my school! First day on my teaching practicum of course!
One word to describe it, CHAOTIC!
Have I mentioned it's a Chinese school?
Well. it's like 99 % of the students are Chinese and they speak Mandarin most of the time! There are some peralihan classes where they can't speak Malay or English and imagine how would I handle those classes???
Owh well, I take it as a challenge and I love challenges! Bring it on! xD
For this week, we were given a 22-period schedule replacing some teachers. Just for this week though but I can foresee it's going to be a long hell-like week!
Anyhow, it's going to be fun I guess, give some space for optimism, will ya???
Owh yeah, the four of us (Emmie, Has, Gee and me) are given the evening session. Not so cool, because we were informed that the students in the evening (which consists of Form 1 and 2 students) are very very very active! So, good luck to the four of us!
We were told that we will given 5-period classes for English and the other five periods for other subjects such as Pendidikan Jasmani, Pendidikan Seni, Pendidikan Moral, and etc etc. (Please take note on the Pendidikan Seni).
So, we were so excited about it? Pendidikan Jasmani??? Hahaha! Interesting! Pendidikan Moral, okay laa. Pendidikan Seni??? hahahaha! God Bless me!
Here is a picture of my first day inside of the classroom teaching the form 1 and 2 students. Note that, I drew the picture myself.
erm, it was just a relief class, i know...
it was out of control!
By looking at my drawing above, am I eligible enough to teach Art lesson???
