Semester 2008/2009/2

To my coursemates of 3SPN, the registration starts tomorrow(13/10/2008) until 24/10/2008(Friday). I took a photo to show the section for 3-SPN to register for each subject. (you can enlarge it to have a better view) Kindly pass the message around to our friends and if anyone cannot do their registration online, please SMS me and let me know. I can register for you. Two more weeks to go!!!~ALL THE BEST!!~ see you guys very soon!!~

P/S: the NEW timetable is out too. You can go HERE to print it out!~

just got my renewed road-tax on Friday..
is in ORANGE colour!!haha..

I woke up suddenly and realized that the day was bright.I quickly switched on my handphone to check the time (clock on desk too far, cannot see without my glasses..haha..) oOps!~is 715a.m.! i was supposed to wake up at 630a.m. to attend mass in JB with my teacher and why didn't my alarm clock rang? It was as simple as "i forgot to tick "Sunday" in repitition category."=.="....

So, in a rush, managed to freshen up myself, changed and called Mrs. Chong that im on my way out. well, she just wake up too...(mass starts at 745a.m.) from UTM to STF takes about 20 minutes..jumped into my car, started the engine and set to go.

Reached STF about 15 minutes (took a shortcut..shhh...haha) no sign of Mrs. Chong's car anyway, and also Eldaa (the only Christian girl in the school..i mentioned about her before in my previous post). i waited for about 5 minutes (i know, we are already late for mass) then only saw Eldaa. She went in the office to get permission from the warden for outing and just when she's done, Mrs. Chong arrived. Both of us went in and off we go to Sacred Heart Church near Taman Pelangi in JB.

It's my first time to Sacred Heart. It's a very lovely church next to a post office.Obviously, we are really late and we missed the opening prayer and readings. I felt bad about it. But at least we still make it for the mass.

the altar

Mother Mary statue

The mass ended around 845a.m. After blessing from the priest, who happens to be an Irish (same as one of the priest in Kuching, St. Joseph Church...can't remember his name..Father Albert???), we prayed for a while in a special prayer room where they put the Body of Christ. After that, we get ready to leave. Mrs. Chong met a few of her friends in church and she kindly introduced me and Eldaa to her friends. She introduced me as "her colleague". haha..guess what's the reaction of her friends?

"She's so young!~A very young teacher!~"

haha..yea, with a T-shirt and jeans on me, of course i look young.but im very happy and honoured to be known as Mrs. Chong's colleague. I'm a future teacher anyway.haha...

After mass, we went for breakfast. At first, Mrs. Chong planned to bring us for Fishball soup but the shop was not opened yet. So, instead of fishball soup, we went for wantan mee. I noticed a phenomenon in Johor, breakfast are not as laku as in Kuching!!~ hardly see young people having breakfast offence to my WM friends but even Mrs. Chong agrees. In Kuching, me and my friends often meet up for breakfast which is quite normal for us...but not here, most of my friends will rather have lunch (or brunch to be appropriate) together. haha..culture shock? not at all!~

well, after wantan mee, Mrs. Chong dropped by a bakery shop (Season Bakery - a popular bakery shop here, almost like MITA or TAKA bakery in Kuching) and bought me and Eldaa each a set of assorted cakes.That's so nice of happy to get cakes!~haha...well, not think too much but sweet things do make you happy rite??so yes~i'm happy!

Back to STF, got in my car and headed back to UTM. But before that, i went to JUSCO in Taman U to buy mineral water. Almost finished my stock in room and decided to shop something for myself. A pair of shoes maybe?? I was thinking...

reached JJ (the name people used for Jaya JUSCO) around 1015a.m.~hardly see any shop open yet! (operation time 1030a.m to 1030p.m.) my first time to a almost empty JJ because usually is like people mountain people sea in JJ!! that's one reason i dun really like to hang around in JJ but today was quite a pleasant sight.haha..

with two boxes of (1.5litre x 12) mineral water in my trolley (yes~i'm the one who carry the boxes, not the staff) and just wander around to see if i needed anything else. I'm glad that i did that. haha..Guess what i found? a PERFECT gift for myself!~


a Beijing Olympic 2008 souvenir cap in orange and white design!~

=front view=

=side view=
nice it!!

It is displayed in the glass cupboard. No wonder i never seen it or noticed it before this!! The design i picked comes with 3 colours, pink, blue and orange. blue and orange only left the last one. i think i think for....2 seconds?? and decided to buy the orange one. haha..oh well, orange is a great temptation for me and after all, i love baseball caps!~(i have a few right back home if my dad didn took them for himself lah) it will be even useful during holidays when im going for trips with my friends!! (speaking of trip, there is one coming on!!!~stil in the process of planning...hehe...=))

there you have it...i'm just wanna share with you guys my "happiness".haha..yea, despite i'm going home in 2 weeks' time and finishing my observations for teaching practical, i think i still can find a lot more reasons to be happy.

well, that's my lovely Sunday morning~ hope you guys have a great day and great week ahead!!~hugss!~

HOUSE Season 4

Dr. Gregory House
starring Hugh Laurie

Yes. Im so into HOUSE lately ever since i got it from my sis during my one week stay back home for her engagement. Though only got episode 1-13 and though is my first time watching it (i knew about this TV show long ago, just didn't get the chance to watch it), i immediately "fell in love" with it and find Dr. House very amusing and interesting. haha..he made me laugh with his sense of sarcasm and of course..his sense of humour..not only that, im also impressed with his skills and knowledge when it comes to the way, did i mentioned that he only diagnose those cases which he "thinks" is interesting???

In season 4, he was asked by Dr. Lisa Cuddy (the head of the hospital) to get another team of doctors ( as before this, he got a team consists of 3 members; Chase, Cameron & Foreman) to wrok with him. Well, he did all sort of tricks just to avoid this topic with Dr. Cuddy but end up getting a team by choosing three doctors among a class of 40. haha..he was really an interesting and unique character.

i wonder if there's really a doctor like him?? ......hmmm.......

i finished the 13 episodes and was hoping to get the finale for that season.Haha..and yes! i got it from Louis. It was so happens that i asked about House and he got all the seasons!!~my gosh!! Thanks Louis!!! was really thrilled when i knew that! well, he gave me episode 15-16 for House Season 4 and it turned out to be a really sad ending for the season..for those who watched surely agreed with me...very sad and very unexpected..the emotions are really all over...

The is the scene which Amber is going to die after involving in a bus crash because she went pick Dr. House up instead of Dr. Wilson (House's best friend) which was really heart-touching and it made me so sad...The song that was playing, Iron & Wine- Passing Afternoon was a hit!~ here's the really meaningful...

There are times that walk from you like some passing afternoon
Summer warmed the open window of her honeymoon
And she chose a yard to burn but the ground remembers her
Wooden spoons, her children stir her Bougainvillea blooms

There are things that drift away like our endless, numbered days
Autumn blew the quilt right off the perfect bed she made
And she's chosen to believe in the hymns her mother sings
Sunday pulls its children from their piles of fallen leaves

There are sailing ships that pass all our bodies in the grass
Springtime calls her children 'till she let's them go at last
And she's chosen where to be, though she's lost her wedding ring
Somewhere near her misplaced jar of Bougainvillea seeds

There are things we can't recall, blind as night that finds us all
Winter tucks her children in, her fragile china dolls
But my hands remember hers, rolling 'round the shaded ferns
Naked arms, her secrets still like songs I'd never learned

There are names across the sea, only now I do believe
Sometimes, with the windows closed, she'll sit and think of me
But she'll mend his tattered clothes and they'll kiss as if they know
A baby sleeps in all our bones, so scared to be alone

"You can't always get what you want..." is what Amber told Dr. House when they met in House's dream after Amber died...hmm..that left me thinking..maybe in a way or another, it's sending the viewers a message....hahha...maybe is something else.....or maybe i just think too much~ haha...oh anyway,long story short, it's a TV show definitely worth watching!!~i'll continue to watch and so far im going the other way by starting from Season 1...hehe...

if u re also a fan of "HOUSE", do feel free to show me some links or even share me some of the seasons' episodes...haha...Thanks to those who will!!~=)
Feeling GOOD

5 days had passed, is a Saturday!~is my 11th week already...gosh, already start to miss my students and teachers...yea, 2 more weeks to go!~Guess what?! " Merdeka!!" haha..i had 2 observations in a day on Friday which one is by my lecturer (she came to the school without telling me earlier - a 'surprise' observation) and another one is by my mentor, Pn Norsidah. Both were my last observation for my full teaching practical; 3 observations by lecturer & 6 from mentor.

Hurray!!~the feeling is like "finals are over!" even though i do not have to sit for any final exam this semester...haha...really happy..The real happy thing is i got both positive feedbacks from them...Lecturer commented me as "a good mentor to stucents", "able to make teaching fun & enjoyable" and "able to motivate students"..=) no sense of "haolien-ness" here..just to share...and as for my mentor, she also gave comments like "teacher possessed high spirit and self confidence", "2-ways interactions between teacher and students" and "induction set is interesting".

It was a feeling of relief and haapiness and also contentment. It feels really great to see real comments about urself ( in my case, teaching), it does help to increase my self-esteem.wahaha...isn't it wonderful??i'm feeling glad and wonderful indeed!~

the day didn end just like that. One of the chemistry teachers, Pn Rohaiza invited us over to her open-house. I went over with Pn. Shida and her eldest son, Danish who is only 8 years old. She drove and we chat along the way.we reached Pn. Rohaiza's house in about 15 minutes. She welcomed us and served us spagetti & soto!! case some of u are not familiar with the name of food called soto, is where you eat the ketupat (sometimes bee hoon or mee) with the soup (chicken soup or beef soup) and you eat it with sambal kicap. remember? i made the sambal at Pn. Nor Azian's house. haha..

I didn managed to get any pictures. haha..but i did get some chocolate bars.=p Pn. Rohaiza's house is a corner semi-detached house but she bought the house next door so it became even bigger house. very nicely renovated and even got a mini waterfall just in front of her house compund.most of the school teachers were there.after the lunch, we thanked her and left.

Back to school, i dropped by Pn. Shida's house sort as to "raya" while waiting for Danish to take bath and get ready for religious class in the afternoon at 230p.m. As i wait, Danish gave me some old photo albums to look cute lah him, he even showed me his baby's photos and his brothers...there were also pictures of Pn. Shida when she's young. I enjoyed my time there!~=) do bring back alot of memories....

Finally, i went back to the staffroom where izzah and nani were waiting for me...hehe...for your information, izzah is back!!~ yea, back to school. She's doing well just still recovering from her wounds.haha..she was the "star" today because every teacher who passed by were concerned and asked about her condition. haha...we were joking that she should record the frequent questions asked and play it whenever she was asked...nah...just kidding, really!!~hehe...

Before we headed back to UTM, i went to collect my renewed road tax sticker from the owner of the car. On the way back to UTM, i dropped by SHELL to fill petrol for my car and treat all of us ice-cream!!~haha..the weather was so so so hot!!! it usually rain during the afternoon but not yesterday!!~HOT!~ haha..look how happy is izzah with the ice-cream...

Happy izzah with ice-cream..haha...

and not a 'mum'. izzah and nani kept teasing me like their mummy since their accident and i helped them in someway..please lah...not that old yet..haha...

That was almost how my friday went..when i reached room, im so sleepy because of the hot i took a shower and washed my hair. so refreshing!!~ haha..but that made me even sleepy 'cause im feeling so comfortable and xiang xiang...haha...nap like a baby~

2 more weeks!!~all i have to do now is to finish marking all my students' activity and experiment reports!!~ piles of them!!haha...enjoying it though...well well well, I just can't wait to go home!!~=p have a great weekend my friends!!~

photo i took on Wednesday when Pn. Shida treat me and En. Mizan for lunch at House of the Sundanese Food at City Square, JB..the food was mouth watering & simply delicious!!~

Be safe, Be careful!~

I just came back from UTM after sending my two collegues, Izzah & Nani to clinic for check-ups. They were in an accident yesterday evening and i only got izzah's message this early morning!! I was really anxious when i woke up to read the message. I called but i guess it was still too early, that was around 530a.m. Then, i drove to school as usual. But i cannot stop thinking about them. Finally, i called izzah again and got the story. She is now in UTM, staying at her friend's room with Nani. Both of them got injuries but izzah seems to have more serious wounds. Thank god both of them are alright despite the wounds and bruises, i thanked god.

Eventually, i got the permission to leave the school for few hours and headed back to UTM to bring them to clinic. I suggested that they stay in UTM for the remaining three weeks and we can go to school together by my car. Izzah and Nani gladly agreed. (That was the plan before we started our training!!~but they rented a house near the school earlier on with another two seniors and eventually travelled by izzah's motorbike everyday!~=.="...)

that's what please my friends, who are driving or riding motorbike, please drive safely, be alert!!~ drivers on road maybe reckless in addtion, road conditons and weather may worsen the situation, i pray that my friends are safe from any harm and danger.

God bless you all. Take care.

To Izzah & Nani, get well soon!~ hugsss....

I was surprised and delighted to receive a birthday card from my mother (kinda a first time eh) was emotional. inside the card are words of a mother to her dear daughter and birthday wishes for a daughter who is far from her side. I cannot hold my tears back as i flipped through my card. believe me, it has 5 pages.haha. she even put in my Kindy graduation photo.hahaa...(i guess she cannot wait to see me putting on my real Convo robe)my mum is so cute to make a card for me.
