Back to School

It's Monday and I'm feeling blue, oh yeah. Last night I slept early in order to prepare myself for today (konon!) and still I find it difficult to get my ass out of my warm and comfy comforter for shower. But life has to go on..

Anyhu, I made a quick stop at the restaurant near my house for brekkie to kick start the day and I must say it helped a lot. I arrived early at school and got a good parking spot. Instantly, I had a feeling that today is gonna be a great day. The assembly was short and sweet so we were left with a lot of extra free time on our hands. There were still a lot of absentees in my class, not that I could help it. The rubbish on the floor was an eyesore I just had to order my kids to clean it or there's gonna be punishment (ho ho). It had only been the first day of school after the one-week holiday and already I made sure that everyone is carrying out their duties and paying the class fee, while I reshuffled their seating arrangement and gave them their very first homework. Well, let's just say, Teacher Aida got a lot on her plate right now! Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Errr... -_-'

Pfffftt!!

I am REALLY pissed off with my ex-landlady - the one in Sandakan, not Puchong. First, she complained whenever we told her that something in the house is not working, claiming that every electrical thing in her house is of good brands, thus, no such problem could arise. Yeah, right. Like branded stuff is not gonna break down at any cost. Next, we broke in our doors as we were locked out of our rooms but all she did was, again, complaining that the doors are of low-grade materials and that it wasn't professionally done. Shouldn't she be thankful that we were thoughtful enough to repair and replace it in the first place?? When we asked for the spare keys, all of them were useless and now she has the guts to complain about this and that. Bullshit betul.

I still remember the time when my 'wise' ex-housemate told her that we were moving out when the contract ends (without even consulting me!) and the landlady straightaway looked for new tenants and showed them the house when I was still living there, and sorry to say, spoke Chinese all the way as if I wasn't there at all. How rude! Never once did I fail to pay my rent on time, so it's only fair to say that she didn't have any freaking rights to treat me as if I'm not as worthy! Then, she even praised us for taking good care of the house and now what happened? She deducted all the (unnecessary) repairing and cleaning charges from our deposit and we got it back only after a few months! And that was AFTER I'd e-mailed her ASKING for them!

What infuriated me the most was the statement "Repairing of the furniture spoiled by rats have been not been charged to you".. Yes, we DID inform her about the rodent issue before we moved out and damn her for highlighting the fact that she had done us a favour by not charging us for the spoiled furniture. Tell you what, Christine? I'm less than impressed coz what happened was totally out of our control! It could happen to any of your tenants and still we're not at fault. I hope you can slowly digest that fact into your big thick head before you start putting the blame on others coz that is SOOOOO you!

Real Good Time

I'd spent all day at one of the popular theme parks in Malaysia: Sunway Lagoon with a bunch of my good friends, Sue, Fasha and Eimy last Monday and god, we had so much fun together I wish we could do it again next time! ;)

One of the adrenaline-pumping rides.. are you game??
The pool provides relief from hot days,
and gives us a chance to simply relax and
enjoy ourselves..
Goodbye Sunway Lagoon.. we'll surely come back!

And the Holidays Begin!

The time has finally come! I'm here at the airport waiting for my departure in about an hour's time while having my breakfast consists of iced Nescafe and fried noodles with sausage and egg. Whoa, what a way to kill time! Met my colleague who's also going home for CNY, a few students and their families as well as the owner (and her family) of my favourite restaurant too! I bet all of them (including me) are very excited for the most-awaited holidays of the year!

So here's wishing all my Chinese friends (and students) a very happy and prosperous new year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!

What will the year of the tiger hold for the world?

General Predictions for the Year of the Tiger

The year of the Tiger is traditionally associated with massive changes and social upheaval. Therefore, 2010 is very likely to be a volatile one both on the world scene, as well as on a personal level.

Tigers who thrive on chance and unpredictabilty are best suited to navigating the many upheavals predicted in the year ahead. Those compatible with the Tiger — the Dragon and the Horse in particular — may also find 2010's erratic circumstances inspiring them to ever bolder action, and ultimate success.

Those born under other signs will suffer, by degree, depending on how flexible they are to change. Those who can keep a steady hand on the helm may be shaken, but undeterred by the typically thunderous events foreseen in any Tiger year.

To-Do List

Things to do before the holidays start:

1) Mark students' exercise books - piles and piles of them!
2) Write lesson plans - there's a lot to catch up on~
3) Declutter unnecessary items at work and home - it's a must!
4) Tidy up my messy room.
5) Send my car for service + washing.
6) Pack my bag for KL - shouldn't take too long.
7) Iron my work clothes for the week after CNY hols.
8) Do laundry.

p/s: Failing to plan is planning to fail! Hmmm.. will I have enough time to do these 8 things??

The Softer and Mushier Side of Me

It has only been about a month of separation yet I miss him like crazy.. yes, I do! I'd been kinda occupied with work these few weeks and rarely got the time to keep in touch with my other half.. Well, that's what you get when you're a million miles apart! Every night I sleep early without even listening to his voice and that makes me terribly sad coz we're just a phone call away :(

But you just can't help it when you're too tired, I must say! Also, his new shift pattern is kinda funny and odd, so yeah, I will need to bear with it though deep inside I don't want to. Huhu. Living a single life can be fun and carefree but it can also lead to feelings of loneliness. There's no one around for you to look after, pamper, talk to, argue with or even bully! Haha. It's true, I can't live without him. Practically, he's been around like.. forever, so not being able to be together even after we're married is too much. Reality bites, yeah I know, but there's nothing much we could do about it now. Not yet.

Sweetheart,

Sometimes when I'm sitting alone in my room, all I could think about is the 'wow' moments we had together.. The time when we walked hand in hand everywhere we go.. the time when we watched movies at the cinema and I snuggled closer to you coz I was feeling cold (or scared).. the time when you snapped my pictures when I wasn't looking.. or even the time when we were lying lazily on the couch watching tv and you kissed me on the forehead unexpectedly.. That was when my world seems so right.. and that was why I've just got to be near you every minute of everyday..

So, let this weekend come soon while the rest of the hols pass slowly coz I can't wait to see you, husband! ;)

Sis' Visit... Woohoo!


This makcik came over on a business trip for a couple of days last week and she truly cheered up my days amidst my hectic and packed schedule. I only got the chance to show her around the city and bring her to eat seafood at Ocean King Restaurant (lots and lots of em!). So sorry! And thanks for accompanying me go shopping for my perbarisan stuff and I truly hope you enjoyed your stay in the nature city!

Congratulations to Merpati for becoming this year's overall champion! To Rajawali Marching Team for winning the marching competition - house category! (ehemm.. tak sesia tak tidur malam decorate baju and seluar!) And to Girls Brigade for winning the uniform body category! In a nutshell this year's Sports Day was a great success! Bravo to all!~

Phheeww!

The past few days had been busy, stressful and exhausting. I was sick, and there were heaps of paperwork and marking to be done, sis' visit and Sports Day too, but I am doing okay now. Nothing much going on at the moment except looking forward to the one-week CNY holidays as I will be flying home next Saturday (weeee!). It will be great catching up with hubby, family and friends as I do miss them a lot.

I do have a lot of pictures to post here but I'm just too lazy to organize and resize em now. Maybe I will get it done in a day or two. So take care everyone.

T.P.O!

Totally pissed off! That's exactly what I feel right now. God, please help me... Is there any such place as a SNOB-FREE zone? I need to get there, A.S.A.P! I am totally sick and tired of those who think they're better than others!

These people don't listen to you when you needed them to. It's as if you're talking to yourself, as if you're a broken statue, not worth to look at. All they do is talk and talk and talk and talk endlessly.. as if the world is coming to an end and all that's left to do is talking to each other. They never respect you, treating you like shit when they should be the one feeling that. Seriously! It really disgusts me when people degrading me, forcing me to be someone that I'm not, bowing to their wants.. well let me tell ya, it's not going to happen! I can be sweet, I can play nice, only if you do the same. If you want to be treated as adults, now act like one.. coz I'm done with you thinking you're superior than others when YOU ARE NOT. Why can't you, even so late in the day, grow into one of those admirable fellows - reasonable, tolerant, matured and honourable? I must have been dreaming coz that's unlikely to happen EVER. Even my reincarnation cannot guarantee that coz you are never gonna change.

If your snobbishness gets near to rearing its ugly head, please be reminded it'll get you nowhere but trouble. Do what you wanna do (coz you're all grown up and matured enough rightttt?), go talk behind my back, I just don't care anymore. Period.


p/s: I should stop thinking so much.. I'm really tired now.. My health is getting worse..
