U6A having the teacher's day celebration one day ealier than the school.
They followed me to U6G(I look really short compared to Alexis and Kelvin)
Just bergambar with U6S girls
It was not a good start for me. I reached school about 9 am. (Because I had to go to my children school to sign report card). When I passed by the walk away, I saw a few afternoon students sitting on the bench. When I asked them, why they didn't joint the celebration, they told me that they were denied entry just because they did not wear shoes. I really feel bad about that since the kids came to school to joint the celebration and were denied. For me it is not a big deal. I think the more the merrier. (I was not happy about some classes being off today too). Imagine for F5 students, this might be their last teacher's day celebration. And they will have the memory for not allowing them to come today forever. I am just imagine if one of the kids is my own son. I would feel very bad if my son is not allow to come to school just because he happened to be in the last three classes.
I went to joint the crowd to watch the shows. I didn't get to watch much since it was already late. I didn't feel like talking to anybody, so I took a chair and sat away from the crowd.
Some of the students watching the show (U can see the small numbers of them and some tried to find some shade)
When someone told me she put my name to play netball against the students, I was really piss off. She did't tell me earlier. I didn't bring any gym attire to play. But after thinking it over, if I feel bad, why I had to make other people feel the same? I accepted the challange and I played with my 'baju kurung'. I really enjoyed myself. It brought back many memories. I found out I can still play the game (after 28 years not palying netball), I can still jump(not as high la), and I can still intercept the ball. Happy to say, we lead 3-0 in the first half of the game.(We lost to the girls team because different group of teachers played in the 2nd half).
After the game, we had a nice lunch.
Teachers had lunch in the hall.
The food served 4 teachers

Someone asked me(someone very dear to me) 'why we need to learn Maths?'. When we are going to us them in life?, like differentiation, integration, and so on. A million dollar question. That is a very tough question. Tougher than answering the maths exam. I don't want to give the wrong answer. The truth is, personally I don't have the exact answer to the question. But analytically, I gave the answer in terms of moral values:
1. Maths will make u a very patient person, patient will lead u to find the answer(right or wrong is subjective);
2. It will teach you how to plan a strategy;
3. U will be a resoucefull person since in maths u will use all the formulas and axioms;
4. In life u will work had to get what u want(similar with math, u work hard to get the anwer);
5. U make mistakes in solving maths problems, well u'll make mistakes also in life, but life will go on. That is not the end of the world. You will get up and continue with what u do, and try to avoid doing the same mistake;
6. If u 're really like maths, then maybe after u finish school, or college u'll become a maths teacher like me;
7. Some topics in maths will become usefull in some field(like engineering, statistics, bankers, etc);
8. It also teach u to be brave enough to make decisions;
9. I learn maths just because I love it (I don't know how many people share the same feeling);
10. U learn maths because it is required by the system. U can't run away from them. Otherwise u won't get ur stpm certificate.
Try to make the best of what u have now. Enjoy ur students life because once u leave school, u won't have this kind of experience again.
Don't hesitate to do what u want.
Don't want u to regret later.
But whatever u do, do with care because u don't want to regret later.
(p/s-all 10 items above are my own ideas)

Here are some pictures I took while I was there.
A Ghazal show while we were having dinner last night. Now ghazal is quite versatile. That lady can sing english songs and 'lagu' hindustan. Nice voice, considering she is sitting down. Cannot stay long to watch the show since the meeting started at 8 pm. Dinner was nice. A lot of spread.
Eventhough my room was very small, the view from my room was nice. The Hotel got a nice swimming pool. X sempat try, bcos time was limited and I didn't bring my swiming attire.
Another nice view from the balcony of my apartment. The building and that piece of land is called Pulau Melaka. All the land there is 'tanah tambak'. Last time everything was laut.

I sound so serious here.
Good luck in maths 2 tomorrow. C U guys on Monday.

I am support to visit my daughter(Mayah) in SESERI. Sha gave me list of things to bring with me(16 items). Alot I couldnt fulfill. But the most important was, I forgot to bring her laundry. She needs to wear the shirt tomorrow.
When I got to her place, she asked me to teach her add maths, I could't teach, felt a little bit stress. But I managed to go over with her 3 questions.
Then I got home, felt sick, and now...
I am quite ok now.
