...and the foot steps that I leave behind

count down

tick tock tick tock


April 1st passed...
April 2nd passed...and later April 3rd, 4th, 5th..and the rest follows..

Today, its April 13th. Ehhurm, its been a year after i visited haramain..missed those moment. time flies 'rapidly' as always..

approximately 13 more days to come an go before i bid my final farewell to my life as a practical teacher. and only 10 days, just 10 days to be with my students. to be angry or falling in love with them. to be happy or feeling sad.

Yesterday, i had my last lesson with them for the next week planned. haha..semangat. to be honest, i planned that lesson since the second week of pratikum. Things that i want to do most with them.
lets see what would happen. hopefully i'll be free from observation by then.

Katy visited us last week. to my surprise, she arrived at 8 in the morning to observe my one period lesson. of course i didnt see that coming, i thought its going to be double period only- observation kan??? it is the very day that i decided to do some experimenting with my teaching skill: to teach grammar. i am super duper crap at grammar..so i never have even a little confidence in me to teach grammar. but of course, you cant change your lesson plan right in front of her.

and yes, for once in my whole life i felt better and finally i feel like i can be a teacher. why? because i did the explanation part well. so you know the feeling of seeing you ss students so bright because they can understand what you are saying? even though it is GRAMMAR? i felt great and went over the sky and the moon and almost reach jupiter when i suddenly realised that i almost forget the most crucial task for that lesson aka the b.o....muahahaha...

anyway katy and my sv thanks for the tips and comments..i really appreciate it, would do my best to improve all the weaknesses and to maintain all the good part. and for my ss...you know i cant even feel nervous throughout the lesson to see your reaction..-first time got orang puteh in your class. even the loudest boy in my class turned 100% SILENT and only talked to me once in the lesson- tu pun to ask for my permission to go to the toilet. see what orang puteh can do to my ss.
if mh were to come to our school..if..i-d-k what would happen then. he won't right? haihh..

off or of technology?

the last lesson i had with my form 1 ss on technology, i asked them;
what would the world be without the technology? do you think it is going to be better or worst?

my ss gave various responses..
most of them think technology brings no good to the society..perhaps thanks to Albert Einstein quotes too...

*i showed this picture at the beginning of the lesson just to see their responses and elicits more ideas for the debate lesson that day..yeah..memang a handfullllllsss of ideas lah jugak coming...

anyway, to try the theory myself, since my phone live-shy-die-refuse for days dah... i started to live without it as the school holiday begins, and later off with the social network as well..

well, i kinda survived.
what do you want to know so so so much from facebook? twitter? instagram? whatsapp? bbm? today, we heard a thousand stories, not even one we can trust totally, we saw many things, but none we can surely believe.
hidup dalam gua pun kadang kala lagi bercahaya, so long as you change your definition of cahaya.

i miss my family.
so so much.
spending this few days ignoring the world and focusing on them makes me feel happier.
few days more to go, i'll be leaving again,. treasure those around you while you can. you dont know how painful it is, when you have to just 'regret'.

In the midst of hardship..

had to borrow the poem's title this time..

its been two weeks in a row my life took place in such situation, sharing more or less the same theme with the poem..

not really flood issue,
nor albino buffalo neither..

just some hardship issues that one may encounter in life.
but having two of different kind back to back like this..

this is a story i shall kept for my own life lesson in future.
alhamdulillah, alhamdulillah..thank you Allah.
those who stayed with me during such moment, thanksssss a million.
family and friend, who am i without you..
adding to the list, my dearest students..it was for them and because of them,
i could still standing and continue teaching, babbling, laughing like nothing ever happened.

recent? just as i thought its over, in the midst of hardship season three begins... ya rabb..help me, help us, keep us strong to handle this...

its been a while since i last updated this blog.
being a teacher-even more as a practical teacher do put my life a bit upside down.
so today, i'm back at my hometown.
wrap-up session to conclude the practikum phase 1 with our tutor ended beautifully...
lotsa ideas, solution, sharing here and there. that should be the best session ever. i guess.

i planned to upload stuff that i used for my class here everyday, but even checking fb is something i found really hard to do..what more blogging...

once a month boleh kot.....
so these are 'who my students are'
form 1: from 26 in the first week reduced to 24 for 2 weeks and quickly grew to become a 28 students- (and more to come) class. fun to teach. very active. dare to voice out their thought-including commenting my lesson plan.. very cepat-pikap, very competitive. mostly are advanced students few-less than 5 students are quite weak in english. quite playful too. always have something to say about my baju kurung, tudung, appearance, routine, habits, and even my toilet-schedule (like siyesly sgt) and etc. very adorable that i had to hold my laugh everytime i intedned to scold them. very dengar kata. i like.

form 4: 37 students. i have different things to say about this class every week. week 1: gave up, feel like crying-well, actually i did cry. week 2: disappointed- feel like quiting teaching. my voice even melantun back to me after i screamed at them at one particular angry-bird stage. week 3: hello, nice to meet and know you. week 4:i hate the fact that i will leave you for 2 weeks, cant wait to see you after the break. after 4 weeks; my f4 are ss with medium to low ability in english. they are willing to learn, but i must be very keen to teach first. and they are sweets. and i really do love them.
