ATTITUDE huh?!?


The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company…a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so, it is with you…we are in charge of our ATTITUDES!


p/s- I did not compose this, I got it from somewhere I can't remember. I forgot to jot down the person's name. Apologies.. Whatever it is, I strongly agree with the writer and May God bless the writer for sharing this with us!

May you rest in peace..

When I came back to school after the two weeks (I tak ponteng sekolah okay, ada kursus tau!),
I was informed that Pendekar (our pet dog), has passed away! I was very down since yesterday. Feeling a little bit better today. And Pendekar becomes my latest blog entry..

Pendekar has always been the obedient type and he was, of course, NOT one of the gangs which entered our house without permission and made a mess and ended up, we had to purify(samak) our house.. He has always been the one who will follow you for 30minutes to Pengakalan and wait until your boat leaves..

He has also been the kind but over-protective dog which always made sure that our school is not attacked by 'outsiders' like -- other dogs, buffaloes, cows and goats.. at times, those animals did come in uninvited when Pendekar was not around.. and now, he is gone forever..

I have always admired his courage and strength because he could always wait for us and he would never jump onto if he saw any food..

Now, I am going to miss him so much.. I am going to miss his agility, his looks, his obedience, his barks, and all in all, his ever-waiting eyes...

Al-fatihah...

What a day!

IT WAS ALL BECAUSE OF THE FREAKING F**KING INTERVIEW!

I just did not understand why out of all the people who attended the interview (out of all the Science teachers there), I was asked about oxygens and cloroflourocarbon (pardon me if the spelling is wrong, I DON'T GIVE A DAMN NOW!) and how photosynthesis happens and what was the name of the "stesen janakuasa di russia yg digunakan utk melepaskan pesawat roket apebenda ntah yg dinaiki oleh dua org wartawan.. opss... angkasawan ke angkasa lepas!!!

I did not imagine of that questions at all!!

Why ..Oh.. Why...

Now he (the pakcik-looking interviewer) has left me with endless question marks popping out all the time (of course to get my facts right and most importantly, ) thinking if I passed the INTERVIEW..

Sorry guys, I did take some pics before and after interview but I lost my card reader so, I can't upload the pictures! Loathed and Despised and Disheartened!!!

Ada gak member2 yg kena soalan mcm- awak jumpe boyfriend awak tu kat mana? bila nak kawen??

Yanti told me there was a friend of hers who was asked if she would allow her husband to practise polygamy! What the hell was that supposed to be related with temuduga SPP!?!

Adoi, am I such a freak?? Saya nampak sangat scientific ke??! Tak de satu haram pon soalan yang melibatkan P+P, Pulau Banggi, or even English Language..

Aku dah menyampah la dgn interview! aku harap interviewer tu luluskan aku je.. ntah ape benda aku merepek kat dia aku pon tatau! Hell with it!

At least I did make him laugh and he did not make me laugh.. (aku ckp aku ajor English kat sekolah tapi budak2 reply kat aku dalam Bahasa Kagayan when he was just taking a sip from his glass of water and oleh sebab terkedu dgn apa aku ckp, ayer pon tumpah la sikit2 dan nampaklah ketidakprofessionalan dia minum ayer.. Kot2 pasai tu dia tanya soalan mcm mana oksigen terbentuk and he wanted the chemical equation from me! So much for getting a "C" in my chemistry 8 years ago!!

To all out there yg belum interview, bacalah tentang:
~GLOBAL WARMING!
~HAFAL BULAT FPK (org tua tu suh aku sebut bulat2 and dia tersengih ja bila aku baca FPK versi aku)
~ANGKASAWAN dan APA2 YANG ADA KAITAN DGN DEPA (not their marital affairs, of course)

"Hmm.. mcm mana sebagai guru kamu nak memartabatkan profession keguruan di sekolah?"
Aku pon gorenglah mcmana bapak aku goreng mee!

INTERVIEW!

ARGHH!!

why do we need interviews??
it is just like observations! it's freaking f**king scary!!!

ARGHHH!!

I am stressed!!!

Yanti said that she was talking to the interviewer like he was one of the "pakciks" she would talk to.. So cool!

mine?? nightmare??

Only Allah knows what's going on inside my so-stuffed-with-notes brain!

Wish me luck ya for Wednesday, 25th March 2009, 1030am session!

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.... ( a very long endless sigh)

Call of Nature.. Muahahaha

Sorry for not updating my blog for sometime.. Been enjoying some time in Sandakan and Kundasang. Dear TEYLians and other friends, Kundasang is a better place for honeymoon (So, Fairuz, keep Cameron Highlands to yourself, huh!)



TEYL at Kundasang!!

At last, after lots of thinking and some havoc planning (of course it was all because of bloody Shoba Macintyre's nuthead, we managed to arrive at Kundasang safely)


(Aizu--he made it to Sabah, at last! Yanti, Mogana and I at Sepilok Jungle...)


(Aizu, Sarah and I.. What a view at the back! Fieza..You should have been here!!!)


(Hmm.. Kawan2 TEYL..)

To Remember Me...

The day will come when my body will lie upon a white sheet neatly tucked under four corners of a mattress located in a hospital, busily occupied with the living and the dying..

At a certain moment, a doctor will determine that my brain has ceased to function and that, for all intents and purposes, my life has stopped..

When that happens, do not attempt to instill artificial life into my body by the use of a machine. And please don't call this my deathbed! Let it be called the "Bed of Life", and let my body be taken from it to help others lead fuller lives..

Give my sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise, a baby's face or love in the eyes of a woman..

Give my heart to a person whose own heart has caused nothing but endless days of pain..

Give my blood to the teenager who was pulled from the wreckage of his car, so that he might live to see his grandchildren play..

Give my kidneys to the one who depends on a machine to exist from week to week..

Take my bones, every muscle, every fibre and nerve in my body and find a way to make a crippled child walk..

Explore every corner of my brain. Take my cells, if necessary, let them grow so that someday a speechless boy will shout out at the crack of a bat and a deaf girl will hear the sound of rain against her window..

Burn what is left of me and scatter the ashes to the winds to help the flowers grow. If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weaknesses and all my prejudice against my fellow man. Give my sins to the devil. Give my soul to God..

If, by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone who needs yu.

If you do all I have asked, I will live forever..

Trials, turbulation and excitement..

Came out to Kudat with lots of anger bottled up. Boat uncle forgot to pick us up. Ended up boarding another boat (thank Allah) which happened to pass the river while the crocs were planning something on us (i think so)..

While waiting at the jetty in Kampung Palak, I was so shocked, mesmerized and at the same time prayed very hard. My Year 1, little bambino, Alina, was steering a boat!!! It was her turn (every friday afternoon--and i just got to know that when it has been happening continuously for three months) to be the boatwoman of the day. She was so confident, of course, no life jacket on her body, with the kain sarung of the school uniform all neatly wrapped up (like she was about to perform Silambam!)and with one hand steering the boat and another waving at this pathetic semenanjung teacher with soon-to-get-a-heart-attack look on his oily yet full of worry face!

I have never steered a boat all my life. When I was talking to this pengkalan lady(oh yah, i waited for my the second boat to pick me up to Karakit--of course I can't join Alina because they were going back home and not to Karakit), I got to know all the stories about Alina and her family. It was her father's boat that the girl was using and there were four of them. The brothers would start the engine and they take turns to be the boatmen/boatwoman. They travel around one hour plus every day without fail (unless if it rains cats and dogs, of, course they can't make it)to school.

All I could say were endless prayers to Allah to save them from any thinkable and unthinkable disasters. Only ALLAH is their saviour and they have each other's support accompanying them.

Some pictures for everyone. Say your prayers to my courageous pupils, won't you?


(Arif was answering february monthly test. This boy reminds me of my primary school days.. My mom loved to comb my hair like that!)



(my year 2&3 kids answering english test. so many facial expression. susah kot?!)



(year 6 scrap book project. They can do it actually, malas je..)



(an attempt to teach Year 6 cursive writing...buleh tahan kan?)



(so many people have been asking how karakit-the jetty in banggi looks like.. hmm.. well this is the jetty area... surprise!!!)



(ahahahaha.. tu la toilet kat jetty karakit! nak berak pon tak jadi!!)

Ok friends, will update again next time. leave your constructive feedback. Kalau taktau nak cakap elok2, jgn ckp. Buat menyemak blog aku je. Especially to AHMAD!
