Farewell Khing Ming

Three years ago, when I first get the news that I was posted to Kuala Kubu Bharu, I was very worried and sad. I always think of my hometown and my mom when I am in KKB. It never occurred to me that, I will feel quite sad to leave KKB and it did not occurred to me at all that I will miss Khing Ming and all my fellow teachers and Headmistress if i ever get the chance to transfer back to my beloved home town....

16th of Nov will be one of the most unforgettable day in my life, cause that was the graduation day for my year 6 students and also a surprised farewell day for me... I felt happy and sad beyond words on that day, I really felt grand and honoured that day. I was asked to give a farewell speech (which I was told earlier by my friends but I did not bother to prepare cause I thought it was just a joke) in front of the entire school and VIP. Luckily I manage to give a speech spontaneously (Of cause not a good one la but can do la, I supposed).

Here are some of the moments that I managed to capture on my camera...

Kamal, me and Suliana (Suliana will be transferred back to Kelumpang next year too)
My Sweet Dear Plum. Sweet Heart Chrispy and Darling Lemon.... this photo make me wanna cry.....
I love this picture cause this is the only time my Dearest Dear smile to the camera. I will miss my DD very much....
My SH Chrispy.... I will miss her smile and..... her laughter very much..........

My SD Plum.... I am really sad to leave her.... she is really my good friend.

My PK 1, me and our guru pemulihan Ms. Lim
Hehehehehe! food........

The year six pupils singing "Auld lang syne" and a few Chinese songs....

My HM and me... She is kind enough to let me transfer.... A real dedicated lady.
Me feeling nervous giving a speech in front of the whole school.
My 'Boss' PK 3.... a very pleasant and kind lady... I will miss her too...


Can you believe, the last event on that day was this slide show done especially for me by my SH and DD with the help of my PK 3...
When the emcee announced that they are going to put up a slide show especially for me, I was really surprised.... I really did not know that my SH has secretly plan this for me as a surprise I really felt touched... (No wonder la she was asking for my graduation photos and keep on searching for photos in my hard disc a few days ago.... I thought she was searching for her own photos that we took the other day)
The I first saw the photos on the big LCD screen I was like " Oh My God!!!!!!!! I am going to KILL you TCC!!!!"' so embarrassed la my old pictures was shown to the entire school la... my students!!!!!!!!! and their parents!!!!!!! GB and other teachers some more!!!!!!!!!

Some Thoughts to Share....

My mood was quite down these few weeks... life like always has been stressful and full of fun at the same time. In another 4 days, I will know my fate..... whether to get transfer back to my hometown or to stay in my so called 'detention camp' for another year or more..... I am a bit uncertain now.... I am a bit worried and anxious at the same time.

How will I feet if I get transfer back to my hometown? Will I be happy then? Is my choice right? Will I regret it for the rest of my life?

And what if I did not get my transfer? How will I feel? Of cause I will feel disappointed but will it be better if I get my transfer out of KKB? Is my choice of asking for transferring right or wrong? Do I make a right choice by asking for a transfer?

All these uncertainties keep on bugging me ever since I pass up my transfer form and it sort of make me feel a bit down.

But yesterday night as I was browsing the star online (Yes, I do read newspaper ok!) I come across this news about the 3 UTAR students that were drowned in Kampar. Somehow or rather I was quite interested to follow this news so I read the update and follow the bottom link and be a kaypo and found myself here. I really felt motivated and inspired after reading that post especially this particular part which says....

be responsible for the choice that we have make,
it is our own choice,
just don't blame anything around us,
we can choose to be depressed or to be motivated..
is depends on your own choice...
not others..
what happen, happened..
be strong and face it..

I don't know why but these words really knock my brain and wake me up to reality.... I know that whatever choice that I make, I must not regret and be responsible for it in the future, I must be strong to face it be satisfied and thankful rather then to blame others or myself for the outcome.

The incident that happened to the 3 of them were really tragic and sad but there are lessons that we can learn from the incident... Life is certain.... but are you 100% sure that you will breathe again tomorrow? Live your life to the fullest.... don't keep on worrying about the future or about the choice we make in life.

PS: RIP James Khor, althought I never know you but thanks for your beautiful poem (Eeerrr.... is a poem, isn't it?)

Meme: Save Yvonne's Sight

Yvonne Foong has been raising funds for the operations she needs to treat her neurofibromatosis which causes tumours to grow inside her body.

Yvonne had already lost her hearing and communicated through writing on a small white board. But now she's losing her eyesight and needs another operation again. The operation is due in December and once again she needs to raise funds for it. The cost of the surgery is USD44,000 (RM154,770) and the cost of her hospital stay for two weeks is USD915 or RM3219.

She has already raised RM10,000 of this but obviously still has a long way to go. She's hoping to raise the rest by republishing her book I'm Not Sick, Just A Little Bit Unwell in English and Chinese.The books are now available in Malaysian bookshops and from her website store. She is also selling T-shirts at bazaars and via her web site store. You can read about her surgery and donate to her fund here.

Random Silly Posts!

I wanted to put up this post long long time ago but as most of you have known, I was very busy 'farming' these few weeks so cannot blame me ma I need to 'cari makan' wow.

Here are just a few silly posts at random....

Makan... Makan....

A few weeks ago, Chrispy, Julie and me went shopping at KL. We went to Lawyat and Sungai Wang. First of all we stop at KL Sentral for our breakfast in..... in...... a shop call Swiss something I forgot liau la. It is short of a bakery cum cafe shop la. The breakfast set was reasonable lor, so we just go in to have a try la.... not bad lor especially the coffee.

After going to Lawyat... We decided to go to Sungai Wang and Chrispy sort of suggested that we go and try out this place.

Aiyo!!!!!!!!!! So fierce looking gal!!!! What a Spooky Logo that interestingly attracts many youngsters....

Chrispy and Me in front of Gasoline... Hehehe! Chrispy looks so sweet when she smiles wait till you see her face when she sulks Hahahaha!!!!

This restaurant's name sounds so familiar to me but I cannot recall where I've seen it..... till I went back and saw my laptop on the table, then I remembered I saw it in one of my cousin's post in her blog la (She put up that post very long long time ago laiu...) Ceh! People sudah pigi sampai basi baru I nak pigi try.... haiya!!!! I am station in HULU Selangor you know..... so cannot blame me la hehehehehe!!!!!

All I can say about this place is... ok la not bad. I don't mind going there again with my friends cos it is a nice place to hang out with your friends but I won't wanna bring my mom or aunt and uncle there cos.... the place is dimly lighted and those people including me will have a hard time reading the menu some more my uncle more traditional taste one, he sure won't want to eat in 'dark dark' and modern style places.... The food are fine la but the serving is big (or the plate is huge? Hmm.... maybe our table is too small la.....) and the price is reasonable la.

There are variety of delicious food and beverage for you to choose in the menu.

In this place, you can either choose to sit outside where you can sit comfortably on a normal table (good for tall and long legs people) or, if you do not have long legs, you can choose to sit in the cubicles which you can have more privacy with your friends but you must sit cross-leg without your shoes on. Like I say on top lor... the place is dimly lighted and for those who love romantic or sleepy looking style restaurant, then this is the place for you la (Errr.... if you can bear with the noisy youngsters there la....)

Chrispy and me are not so tall and do not have long legs so we choose to sit in the cubicle....

and we totally forgot about Julie (The tallest and the slimmest among the three of us) .... poor Julie. she has to struggle sitting with her long sexy legs Hahahaha! (Oh! I am so Baddd.........)

I told you the plate is huge......

and the serving is BIG.... so do you believe me now? Chrispy's chicken chop lor....

Julie's baked rice with fish.... big serving la till she cannot finished the whole thing wasted only.

and my black pepper chicken chop lor.... I manage to wallop the whole thing lor and I feel so sinfully full after the meal..... :(

New Photo Studio

One fine Saturday, Plum, Jean and myself went to take photos just for fun at a new photo studio in KKB. We thought it will be fun taking our studio photo in a new photo studio but, we were very wrong. I just cannot believe that such a lousy and unprofessional photographer dares to operate a photo studio. Eh! go take a photography course first la lady!!!!
It was so ridiculous! We had to wait for around an hour for the back drop to be set up and the photographer seem to pissed us up by making each one of us sit there like a statue for around 10 minutes before she can take a good snap (so lousy, no wonder close shop already!!!!)
Here is some of the shots from that lousy photo studio....

See? I am so reluctant to smile liau... actually I want to use my two fingers to poke her eyes... so fed up!
Plum was more patient but actually she was struggling to smile
Jean was tired but she managed to pull a sweet smile...

See!!!! What a lousy shot!!!! where is the other half of my face???? 'Faint'
You know where exactly the photo studio is?
Here lor.... In my own hostel.... lor, hehehehe! the three of us was just too streassed up and silly on that day.

This is Daisy Mok's baby boy, Ray Ho, big boy liau look so cute!!! This photo was taken in our studio by me hahahaha! I know kaki also tak namapak liau....

A very Belated Birthday Gift

On the 31st of August..... I received a suprised belated Birthday Gift from some one at Rawang train station in the Commuter to KKB. Can you believe that? My Birthday gift on Merdeka Day?
It should be my Merdeka Day Gift instead of Birthday gift I feel.
Anyway thank you very much "Yang' for your Merdeka present!

These are the present....... A cute Doralin a touching 'unsign' birthday card ("Sori ha? I no time to write la" hat's what she told me :( sad....)

and she gave me this too... actually what is this for ha?
