Facebook Fasting Month

I have always been the one who cannot resist the temptation and have no self-control over addictive stuffs, like Facebook, branded bags etc...

During my trip to Paris, I suddenly 'felt' that I LOVE branded bags and bought a few. So, when I'm back to Malaysia, I bought the last one (in this year, hopefully) and decided to stop buying.

And now, it's Facebook. My friend once told me, 'I don't need to ask about you because I can catch up with your life easily via Facebook.' Yesterday, after a call with my husband, I found myself clinging on to Facebook since I step into the marriage phase. Or to be more accurate, I have no L.I.F.E.

I have become one of those who have nothing else to do than just 'reporting' their daily lives on the Facebook wall. My husband said, 'smart' people won't reveal too much personal information on social networking sites and save no privacy to themselves. Of course, this is just a joke from him. However, it makes me realize that I have overexposed myself on Facebook, including my baby. Besides, it has become the breeding grounds for rumors and gossips, just like 'online pasar pagi'. So, to prevent myself from turning into a big KEPO, I have made a decision:

to stay away from Facebook for a month and GET A LIFE.

Now, I will transfer my addiction from Facebooking to Blogging. At least, blogging improves my writing skills. I can write about anything and everything, not just about myself. And, I do not have any chance to peek at people's latest updates and make up stories from there.

Good luck to me!

Oral Test

I'm here not to talk bad about my students. I'm amazed ( and amused ) by their bravery for trying to speak although they are not competent in English. And, I would like to dedicate this post to all teachers and teachers-to-be. Being teachers are not that easy... ^^

This is what happened between a F5 student and me during the oral test. He was called to the staffroom for the oral test:

Me: What is your name?
A : Erm... name tu nama ke, teacher?
Me: Ya.
A : A...h...m...a...d... (spelling alphabet by alphabet)
Me: Saya tak suruh eja, hanya bagitau je nama.
A : Oh, ok... My name is Ahmad... (quite fluent)
Me: Where are you studying?
A : study ar? .... (after a long pause) Home.
Me: Hang belajar kat rumah? Jadi, mai ke sekolah buat apa?
A : Oh... sorry sorry... SMK Dato Ali Ahmad.
Me: How do you come to school?
A : How tu apa teacher?
Me: Bagaimana.
A : Oh... (confidently) Happy.
Me: Huh? Hang datang ke sekolah dengan kenderaan 'happy'?
A : Oh... haha.... motorcycle.
Me: What is your hobby?
A : Fishing.. (bingo! finally got one correct)
Me: Good. Then, when do you go fishing?
A : When tu apa?
Me: Bila.
A : Today.

The two teachers in the staffroom laughed out loud. Me? Pengsan terus.

Hello, world! I'm back!

Ok, I have started a new blog after a long time abandoning the old one. There were so many things I would like to share with my friends and so many thoughts appeared in my mind. Yet, my busy family and school lives caused me to discontinue my blogging habit. Oh, okay, it sounds like an excuse. Never mind.After all, I am back.

Ok, sorry because I am going to start with something heavy here. You would wonder what is the thing that gives me such a strong inspiration to start blogging again. Well, it's the HOT issue discussed by all the people out there.

Maybe some of you would not agree with me here, and being a 'coward' and 'skema' person as I have always been called, I seriously think the COLOUR ISSUE should not have been ended up this way.

I almost laughed out loud while reading some friends 'angry and emotional status' regarding the issue. Let me make myself clear here. I do not support or stand on anyone's side. Here are just my very personal opinions.

1) I do think that every country should be liberal enough to allow people to voice out their dissatisfaction. Using chemical weapons against the innocence can just give us a bad name. Salute those who can stand the gas and strong current of water. *ouch*

* Comment (2) has been deleted due to the anger of the readers who think that police force should not have been acting violently against the people. *Told u I'm a coward* After deep consideration, I think some of them who deliberately treated the people brutally SHOULD be blamed, yet those who didn't should not suffer the scoldings. One is not all.

3) Can you deny that the OPPOSING PARTY has somehow manipulated people's sense of justice in helping them to get what they want? Give an example, a little 16-year-old girl's death due to her admittance to the general hospital being refused by the hospital authority. The reason is because they are not able to pay deposit beforehand. What has it to do with the government? Try send her to any private hospital, they will reject her admittance for the same reason. So, I feel very sad for those who are easily manipulated by the politicians. After being educated for so many years, they still haven't got their brains developed. Sorry for being rude... but this is what I think. We should not let people to put words into our mouths. People who always make mistakes does not mean they do nothing right.

5) The last one, for those who are getting paid by the government every month, if you think the government treats you so badly, why bother to stay with them, PLEASE LEAVE. Don't tell me you don't have a choice. You DO. Sometimes, LOVE means you accept the good and bad. I love my husband, I will not kill him just because he has committed some mistakes. I will tell him and give him a chance to make it up instead. If you love your country, do something more constructive than just swearing and yelling on Facebook wall everyday. We do what we can do and hope for the best. But, be grateful to what we have now compared to other countries who have suffered the worst.

6)Being brave to speak does not mean you are right. And, does not take aggressiveness as righteousness. Being quiet does not mean I am a coward. I just choose to appreciate what I have now and hope you feel the same.

All in all, I do salute those who dare to stand out for the liberty of the country. But, beware of what you are doing so that you won't be blindly led by those who have bad intentions behind that. Anyway, I think there are so many people in this world: there must be some who are angry and always speak out for themselves or even others; or others (like me) who always think on the bright side and will stay peace and easy as long as people do not take too much advantage of us. (sikit-sikit boleh la)

AGAIN, I restate that I strongly agree with people who stand out for the betterment of our country, but I just do not hope this good intention be distorted and become the weapon of the Opposing party... That's all.
Any comments are welcome. Who knows I may edit my blog again? ^^

Yang baik dari Tuhan, yang kurang baik dari saya. Sekian. Y(^-^)Y
