So, It’s The New School Guys!

This entry was drafted on 27th September 2011, a day after lapor diri in SK Parit Jawa. I didn’t manage to post it then because………. Well, I can’t remember why I didn’t post it, but hey, I’m posting it now, so here you go. 🙂
Owh, anyways, w
hile you’re reading it, I’ll be writing second entry about this school from three-weeks-of-me-being-here perspective. See if there is any difference with this my-first-day-owh-i-like-the-school entry.

*******************************

Yesterday, was the first day of me being in Johor, or to be exact Muar, for work purpose. Even though this was not the first time of me being in Muar, but I was still nervous. This is different. I’m actually WORKING here now. Instead of just visiting my husband, this , I guess, would be permanent. I work here, I live here. Wow. I’m orang Muar now? Heh, no. I’m orang Sabak Bernam, I just live in Muar.

Anyways, back to the main point here, I actually wanna talk about my new school. Owh. before that, I went to PPD to collect reposting letter and I met our TESL senior there, Fauzi. Or should I say, Encik Fauzi? Haha. He’s now working in PPD as an officer. He was actually an IPBArian but he didn’t recognize me. Hm, why am I not surprised? Haha

Okay, so the school is called, SK Parit Jawa. It’s not very rural I would say, it’s in the heart of the town of Parit Jawa. It’s by the main road and it is actually quite a big school. I’ve spoken to the GPK Kurikulum, Puan Noraini, she said there are about 50-60 teachers, and 600 students all together.

First thing I asked her about the students performance in English. She said, ‘Biase lah Mimi (that’s what she called me, never mind, I haven’t told her that people actually call me, Emy. haha), sekolah mcm ni, ade la budak boleh, ade yang x boleh.’ Then, I asked her about the number of English teachers at that school. Well, there is only ONE English teacher (optionist) and two more English teachers who are actually non-optionist. So, when she told me they are really in serious need of English teachers, I felt relieved. I was afraid that my presence here was not welcomed because they have enough English teachers. Thank God I was wrong about that. 🙂

There were not many teachers when I came to the staffroom, but I found one important person. Hehe. The only TESL teacher in that school, Kak Qilah. She was sooooo friendly and nice to me. She said she was happy that I’m now in their English team. Back in SKTJ, I was given responsibility to teach 32 periods per week and here, Kak Qilah was given the same responsibility. I know how tiring it was, especially when you have to teach 8 periods straight from morning till afternoon, only had 30 minute-break in the middle. So here in SKPJ, I guess we could help each other to balance the workload.

I would say, that I’m gonna love the school. I don’t really care about the students, because you know, kids will be kids, (naughty, attention seeker, rebellious), mane2 pon same jer, but the teacher, so far those who I have met, are very very very nice. But hey, it’s only my first day, it’s still early to tell actually. Maybe true colours are gonna start showing in 2 weeks time. Or less than that (Or, is it my own true colours that I am talking about? HAHAHA)?

We Are

We Are by Joy Williams

First
This is your first step
Light
Is caught in your eyes
Heart beats
To the rhythm of the city streets
Can you feel it
Can you feel it

(Chorus)
We are one
We are reaching out
We are one
Can’t you hear the sound
We are now
And we’re reaching for the sun
We are
We are
We are
One

Breathe
This beautiful world
Together
Moving in the same direction
It’s happening
Every one connecting
Can you feel it
Can you feel it

Everyone is every one of us
Everyone is every one of us
Everyone is every one of us

I really love the piano starting in the beginning of the song. I’ve never heard of Joy Williams before, but I really love this song of hers. I first heard it on The Vow trailer that I heard some of my friends were talking about in Facebook (which was today). So, I ‘youtubed’ it to check out the movie, and suddenly fell in love with the soundtrack too.

Enjoy.

The New Friend On My Wrist, :-)

I’ve been meaning to write about my new school, SK Parit Jawa, Muar but I’ll save it for later part.

Yesterday, I went to Jusco Bandaraya Melaka to watch movies (Killer Elite best!), as well as to find a new watch. Why? Here’s why.

My old Swatch! Waaaaa! 😦

We went to Swatch to fix it, but as expected, it couldn’t be fixed. All of the three hooks were already broken (well,I dropped it to the floor several times, so of course by now they were already broken *shrug*). So, the solution is, BUY A NEW ONE. I don’t want anymore Swatch, so I went to another watch store.

I like Fossil, but their designs are mostly yg tali kecik2 tu. Those kinds of watch didn’t look nice on my BONEY wrist. So, I bought Esprit.

Hubby letih melayan his fussy wife. He faked the smile.

I think it was more than 5 times she altered the watch band. Tangan kecik gile kot.

The 2-year warranty..

Taaaaddaa!

Get a closer look.

I left my another watch at home (Sabak Bernam). So, I have been ‘watchless’ for a week here. Suffering! Rase kosong tangan ni (bygkan Mami Jarum without her gold bangles, mcm tu laa..). Now that I have a new watch, I am now full of confidence!!! HAHA

Okay, I’m actually late to Apek’s wedding in Pahang. Hubby dah bising. Gotta go, bye.
