these few weeks

Sabtu lepas, aku jadi pengerusi majlis untuk pembentangan kertas kerja oleh Ustaz Kipli bin Haji Yunus on Wanita Bestari Pemangkin Modal Insan Berkualiti.

Amboi....

Tengok tajuk, grand betul bunyinya. Agak grand la juga, kalau YB Datuk Amar Awang Tengah bin Ali Hassan yang jadi VIPnya.

But I just did my job, slot mula kul 2.00 pm sampai 3.15pm. Took over dari MC, perkenal pembentang, then all I did most of the time during the slot was sit pretty (pretty ke, mak?) on the stage while the pembentangan berlangsung. Not bad juga the ustaz. Maklumlah, dah berpengalaman dan amat berilmu berkaitan public speaking and motivational speeches ni kan? Then at the end of the pembentangan tuthe pembentang pulak yang tanya soalan kat hadirin and hadirat. Was supposed to be me to take over from him and let him sit while people ask questions. Tapi tak ada yang nak bertanya, so I took over from him, buat ulasan and then pass the majlis over back to the MC. Then the runners kemas dewan etc to get ready for the arrival of the YB. I waited for the YB, just to get a glimpse of him. But I left right after her arrived. I had another engagement to attend to afterwards. I got a piece of fabric and some cash which they gave to me on the stage.

I have been eating like a pregnant bear lately. I have gained more than a few pounds. I am worried. I have gone back to the weight I was back at uni. What heppen, my fren?

Ontahlah. Kawan den kato eden nak kono period. Iyolah agak eh. Eden ni period tak ponahnya samo, lain lain yo simptom eh. Kojap gini, kojap gitu. Tapi part yang gaining 5kg's tu yang tak sodap na tuh.

Lopeh tu den ketagih garam pulak dah balik, macam 4 tahun lopeh. Siap ni, salt shaker dalam beg tangan ni. Gilo ko apo???Iyo boto nak mampuih budak ni agak eh?

Tadi ni kul 7.30pm I attended a meeting for KSK. Duit dah masuk katanya. Beriya-iyalah abang-abang Chinese ni semua mengatur perbelanjaan. Maklumlah, mereka ni kan orang dah biasa bisnes, kan? Lagipun, salah seorang abang-abang tu adalah pemilik kedai peralatan sukan. Yassssszzzz..... Kalau dah KSK namanya, mestilah wajib menggunakan peralatan sukan, bukan? Cait! Tabbaek sangka buruk taw? Tapi aku rasa abang-abang Cina tu baik betul. Masa meeting, meriah sungguh.

I tried to leave earlier... tapi last-last, aku left at 8.45 gak. Dah more than an hour late for badminton. Baru nak mula main semula after so long. Last aku main bulan January lepas. Damn it!

Lepas tu aku kena gatal-gatal. Lepas tu clash dengan tah hapa-hapa. Last-last tak main la. Ni pun bukan apa sangat nak main, sebab kawan ajak. Sian la plak adik tu. Lagipun nak tahulah akuni mampu main lagi ke tak game tu. Mereka main bukan selow-selow. Ala-ala Thomas Cup match la jugak. Aku yang gemok ni just mencuba mana yang termampu je lah. Mana yang aku malas tu, aku biarkan je lepas tu buat-buat macam marah la. Padahalnya aku memang tak larat pun. Muahahahaha! Ni pun tadi takde warm up ke apa ke. Main je terus. Tak pernah ada masalah pun kalau aku tak warm up, sebab ... entah. Memang belum pernah kena cramps lagi. My body probably metabolizes uric acids efficiently? I don't know. I hope it won't cause any problems on my joints as I grow older. At work, ada dua orang staff yang kena gout. Kesian they all. Kalau sekali kena serangan tu, kena MC. I have my own ailments; namely irritable bowel syndrome and acute back pains that would render me motionless when it strikes. I'd be totally bedridden. Tapi dalam 2 - 3 tahun ni belum lagi kena serangan yang melampau sehingga kena ambil MC. Moga-moga Allah menjauhkan aku dari penyakit tu.

Tapi aku dapat penyakit lain pulak la dah skang. Asma. Maklumlah, degil cakap ayah aku. Ayah aku kata, lepas kul 8pm jangan mandi!!! Aku? Tak de, kul 2 pagi pun mandi ni! Kunun la tak selesa apa bagai. Skarang? Kau ingat dah tua tak leh kena asma kah? Ha.... degil lagi! Cakap ayah tu, kalau degil memang kena cash la kan? Skang ni kalau aku demam je, paru aku rasa berkeladak. Batuk cemana pun rasa tak puas. Pam je lah ventolin tu. Kalau tak juga lega, ke klinik la pulak, pakai serkup tu 30 minit. Degil lah lagi anakku Anillynette...

What I wanna say here is, if I can't lead by example, learn from my mistakes. Ingat tu, lekit cemana pun rasa badan lepas bersukan waktu malam, jangan mandi. Just lap dengan kain je. Biarlah orang kata jijik ke apa. Umur manusia tahan sampai 80 - 90, depending kalau pandai jaga kan? And tak kena eksiden apa ke. So nak pakai lama macam tu, pastikan internal parts pun sihat. Sesuailah dengan usia. Kalau umo 90, tapi internal parts macam umo 200 pun takde gunanya. Menyusahkan orang je nanti. Berdosa buat anak cucu masuk neraka sebab sakit ati bela kita taw?

Anyway, jangan mandi malam. Kalau nak sangat mandi, pastikan ada water heater. Itu pun jangan kerap sangat. Pendek umo nanti. Orang kan obsessed about living longer nowadays?

Kat tempat kerja, I think a lot of changes are happening and will continue happening. Tadi dah fax surat apply adakan ceramah literasi undang-undang at my school. Most of them are still reluctant to be disciplinarians, and just teach and then just mengeluh je bila budak buat perangai. Takkan mereka expect aku duduk kat belakang kelas all the time? They have to develop the skills themselves. I feel sorry for them. I know it can be overwhelming sometimes, but this is not just happening at this school je. Kalau mereka pindah ke sekolah lain, what are the odds of them having angelic students yang will follow everything they say, right? So with this, at least I hope the knowledge will help them develop the skill through experience.

Rabu, I have to give taklimat to my class teachers. Frankly, I am not very happy with some of them in terms of handling their classes. However, I am not playing the blame game, because I do realize, in this situation, I will have to help them by briefing them on the responsibilities of being a class teacher. I am really hoping that the briefing will help them to be better class teachers. Maybe because most of them are guru sandaran, of course mereka tak tahu, right?

Well, actually in my opinion, tak tahu, sepatutnya boleh bertanya. Tapi it seems to be a trend nowadays. Semua yang tak dipelajari kat U dulu jadi mustahil untuk pick up along the way once you are a teacher. Which is the wrong attitude. Tak, aku tak kata semua cikgu macam tu. Most of the teachers kat sini sangat bagus dan mempunyai a 'can do' spirit. Aku kagum dengan kemahuan dan kebolehan mereka when it comes to handling new things. So, kalau ada the right guidance, I am sure than everyone can be good at everything they do as long as they have the right attitude.

Kan?

Oh ye, I would also like to say Congratulations kepada sorang cikgu kat sekolah tu sebab dia dapat APC tahun ni. Dia memang layak sebab sangat rajin dan bersungguh-sungguh dalam menjalankan tugas. Untuk adik-adik yang lain, your turn will come. Keep up the good work!

Starting this week, akan ada banyak aktiviti. Busylah. Lately ni tak update bukan apa, malas. Jumaat lepas, cuti Good Friday. Hari ini, sekolah kat town ni cuti, Easter pulak. Sekolah kami applied the same off day tapi tak approved. Maybe bilangan guru dan murid beragama Kristian tak seramai sekolah tu kot? Maybelah.

Banyak benda nak cerita. Tapi,lain kalilah pulak.

Tadi budak dari kedai buat ID card to messaged me, katanya ada virus serang their computers, habis wiped out semua photo and info of the teachers yang aku hantar ke kedai last time. Kasihannya. Harap komputer mereka dah ok. I told him I will e-mail the stuff to them. Takkan nak drive all the way to Sipitang just to get the same stuff to them. Malaih la. Lagipun apakah gunanya ada Streamyx, kan?

Oh ye. Aku cerita kat sini benda yang aku nak buat bukan aku berlagak ke apa ke. There is still a lot of room of improvement for me. There are tons of things that I would like to do in terms of peningkatan professionalisme in my teachers at the school. Actually, planning all these for them, at the same time, tumpang belajar juga among them. Sambil swimming, drinking wasser, macam tu.

OKlah, not sure siapa yang baca blog ni lagi. Tapi I am sure siapa yang baca ni mesti bosan gila and tak tahu apa nak buat sampai kan baca entry ni sampai habis.

Tapi, thanks for reading anyway. I'm glad you are here.Justify Full
