Hello everyone! Hehe, I am now blogging next to her, who looks.. busy. What you think teachers are not busy people? They work 24 hours a day ok. They teach your sons and daughters, and when they’re not teaching, they’re marking, and when they’re not doing that, they’re planning what and how to teach, and creating materials for teaching, and when they’re not doing that, they’re worrying about whatever they’re teaching. Of course, I haven’t even mentioned the tons of administrative work that they’ve been hurled with. The teaching job does not stop at 12.30pm! You think it’s a handful taking care of ONE child, try taking care of 34 of them, in one class! But that is not the silliest part. The silliest thing of all in this ridiculous profession is that, when just one student actually does his/her work, it makes the whole planning, yelling, negotiating and worrying seem worthwhile a thousand times over! They’re too easy to please, it’s just ridiculous.
Anyway, I shall now abruptly change the topic to something frivolous. Why? Because in life, we need frivolity to keep up sane, young, sexy and alive. Some fine dining, a little shopping spree now and then, beautiful jewellery, relaxing massage every full moon, great friends, great laughs. Enjoy them! They’re like little trinkets of joy. Just remember to always be thankful to God, for every minute, every second, every day.
I’m going way off tangent again. Oh I had a near-death experience today. Though that’s probably rather dramatic of me. It is “near death” but its not necessarilly mine. It was raining cats and dogs on the highway around lunch time, and I was rushing because I had to meet Boipren. Then I saw an ambulance flashing its lights on my rearview mirror and promptly went to the left side. Suddenly to my horror, the ambulance went on a puddle and swerved violently to the highway railings and slipped to MY side of the road! I had to practically slam on my brakes and stop in the middle of the road! If I hadn’t I surely would have hit the spinning ambulance. Crazy! The ambulance’s tyres probably had no tread left on it, which is rather scary since there’s a patient riding at the back! Anyway, it looks fine though, just superficial smashes on the side caused by contact with the highway railings. But someone has got to do something about the tyres. Scary.
Lets take a moment to reflect. *Al Fatihah*
A big shout out to the extremely thoughtful Senor Pablo Fernandez who sent me a little birthday gift all the way from Kangarooland! I’m extremely touched and suddenly have the strongest urge to say “Friends Forever” but I will not, because I’m cool. Hoho.
I WAS SO EXCITED on the way to the Mail Processing Centre. The last time I went there was for this. I think it reminds me of times when my dad used to be away a lot overseas and he’d send nice stuff, and we’d go and pick it up at the MPC and everyone would get a gift! It’s such a nice feeling!
At first I thought it was a CD, because it’s in a thin square packaging, then, when I got to the “censorship board” and had to open it right then and there, I was pleasantly surprised to find this chic pink card, and a little gift inside!
Isn’t it lovely? Hehe. I hooked it on my car keys right there and then! :D:D:D Thanks again Pabs!
Wow super long post. I should blog from school more often. Anyway, it’s extremely nice getting things from snail mail.
Here’s something fun, if you are a reader from anywhere outside of Brunei, do send me a postcard! E-mail or drop me a message on the Contact page so I can give you my proper address. My address is also available on my Facebook page. 🙂 I’ll gladly return the favor, and it would surely make my day! Send from anywhere in the world!
