Haiyaaaaaaaa....

Shouldn't have praised the "magic liquid" yesterday. Jinx alrdy. Tidak mengasih. Back to square one with the flu. Yesterday, had quite a frustrating time lecturing. What is happening to our education system? Most of my students are not serious in learning. We are going to a heavier chapter, yet they still do not know where to find reference books. Came to class with tiny cute princess notebook (not that i have anything against princess/barbie buku kan sri), lenggang lenggang kangkung and 1 pen. When i started talking about simple demand and supply principle, u can see blank and blurred faces. When asked about whether they did any reading (as told by yours truly last week), dengan bangga they said di kedai mana mau beli buku? Chissss! enough of spoon feeding culture to these spoilt brats. It is not that they don't have money to buy books, they do! They possess the latest hand phone with branded bags and t-shirts!
Sebagai hukuman, gave them more than usual amount of assignments and by next week I want to see every single student must show me their book.
Apa kah kaitan post ini dengan kedua-dua pictures above? I am as blurred as you are people. Wakkakakaakakakaak! No direct relationship with this post. Its just for eye candy..hehehhehe. The beddings below is my fantasy bed tho. Blue and white color scheme. Hmmmmmm sri, maybe we should hang our blue and white plates on top of this bed to complete the pic eh...

Whimsi,

ada post doc sini kasi sa new definition of lecture;

Lecture: An art of transferring information from the notes of the Lecturer to the notes of the students without passing through 'the minds of either'

menarik kan hehhehe

hahahaha... klu gitu, mcm yg tu postdoc di jipun ckp... sinang ja, ko kasi notes in 1 a4 paper, then give to one of them.. i can gerenti u that it will be copied by all the students in a few days... no guarantee that they will read though... or ko kasitau yg the all the assignments, lectures and exams you are giving will be based from this one book which you can buy from me... then arrange with Zenithway to give stock to you... guarantee you can make money one, because the supplier give you some percentage from the book sale... then you have more money to spend at fleamarket hahahha

I sure wouldn't want to be a teacher. I think it would be a really hard job trying to teach uninterested young people.

Hi Whimsical, couldn't help smiling read of your students. What grade are they? Co-ed?
Reading this post reminds me of that Academy award movie, 'To Sir with love'. Have you seen this movie?
If not go get the CD. You'll love it.

I love that pic of the boat above the mud. Where is it? Pulau Ketam?
Anyway, you hang loose and keep well, best regards, Lee.
