Anyway, it was a rather busy week at work before the Chinese New Year break and was really glad that Kah Hoe was in the team....there are a lot of things that I can learn from this experience.
Well, we did went for a simple "Lou Sang" session. (with some of my colleagues)
I went with Kah Hoe, Kelvin, Phoebe and Yong. It was a rather interesting lunch that we had that day. Probably because of the humour from Yong.
Besides this, I had a simple "LEPAK" session with the juniors and my housemates (excluding Aaron though). We went for a pool game and a makan session in mamak...
Introducing the Limited Edition Toyota...
Alright...it's not mine....I don't have the money to buy this car...haha!!
Well, didn't really take much photos that day but I did took some video so probably will be uploading it later when I have more time.
This week was also a busy week as this is the first week that I actually have the time to complete all the 3 classes on weekdays for my students.
Honestly, these kids are a bunch of energetic and stubborn kids....in a way, like many of us, while we were young, we rushed to finish our homeworks, even without truly understanding them sometimes. I guess this is the Malaysia education culture....it doesn't matter whether you understand or not, so long as you score A. I'm hoping to do something different with them. I hope I can help more than scoring A but to develop the right attitude towards studies and life.
David, a standard 4 student who is energetic...
These are some of the students who were there when I went there earlier. These kids stayed together under the same roof and they are like "abang adik" to one another. They are amazingly independent, washing their own clothes, have a schedule for cooking and washing dishes as well as the toilets. They also have a schedule to wake up so that everyone can shower before school. (only 2 bathrooms in a floor)
Well, they are lacking of revision books. All they have: text books and some work books for them to do exercises. I definitely believe they need more. I posted on FB requesting if more people could donate their old books or sponsor some. Anyway, I'll take it slow with all these....hopefully, the Chinese New Year will bring a renewed enthusiasm in me to teach and in them to learn...
I guess there's all for now...time to pack to go home for CNY!! Let's hope going back at 3am is the right decision!! :-)
