End of Feb
Yes, all the celebrations for new year have finally died down, march is here, 2months have fly passed us. What have you achieved so far in 2008? The kids have just completed their CA1 and I'm hearing more poor results than good ones. What's wrong with the kids? Are they really weak in their studies or are our papers just too difficult for them?
There were 4 days of class this week and I dead tired. Thank God there's a 1 week break soon. But so far, I know there will be 2 days where I need to go for workshop. Life of a teacher=can't choose your off days and even if the government gives you, they will make sure you go back to learn something related to your work.
The school senior soccer team only needs a draw next Monday to advance to the semi-finals. But the soccer coach it stressing me up! He keeps calling me and told me I need to work closer with my colleagues to address the soccer boys that they need to stay away from trouble and concentrate fully on the tournament. He also asked me to convince the parents of soccer boys who forbid their kids from playing in the tournament because of exams or poor results that their kids need to focus on CCA as CCA are very important in today's education system. They need CCA points to get admission to their choice of sec schools. I have never felt so stressed out by a coach man! But then again, I think he was pissed off by the disqualification of the junior team from the tournament as we have registered an over-aged player. He even told me that he wanted me to be around when the team is playing in the tournament matches as he sees me as someone who knows more and passionate about soccer rather than the other soccer teachers. It's a compliment which I had taken but at the sometimes, I feel a bit stressed too!
You will surely be remembered... nic (1976-2007)
Today is Sat and thankfully my close buddy, YZ, jio me out for a karaoke session. It was the same group of friends who went karaoke a month ago, Zong, Rong, Lawneng and his gf. I was till coughing alot and was quite hesitant to sing, but in the end, I still succumbed to it. I love singing if you still didn't know. It's really good for relaxing and releasing your emotions. As usual, our topics on Nic never dies, and we still sang songs dedicated to him. I will forever remember the expressions on his face for every songs that he has sung in his lifetime. At some moments, I still cannot believe he has left us. Is he really happy over there? I wish he is, but I still think he will be much happier if he was still here with us.
I have something to comment about channel 8 drama serials. They are getting more and more superstitious and I can't stand it! The 7pm serial shows this lady who volunteered for the temple so that the guy whom she love will have a change of luck. What is this? You volunteer for only a certain period because you wanted something. In this life, we are encouraged to volunteer for the good of others and not because we want something out of it. Therefore, channel 8 is sending a wrong message to the audience really. And the 9pm show is about Chen Liping's role as a medium for (13 Lady, 十三姑娘）. In the show, she is always trying to convince others to believe that she will have power to help them. And the worst part was when she asked this lady why did she converted to a Christian. Guess what the lady said? She said "I converted because of my daughter and I need someone to take care of my funeral when I passed away." Oh dear oh dear... is channel 8 trying to tell the whole world that people became Christian because of other reasons besides their belief in God? I wonder if I can send these views of mine to mediacorp...
