BirthDay Yay!!!

Thursday, 30th July 09, 1604

It has been nearly a week since my birthday... 24th JULY 2009

Lambatnya buat post.. Why??

  • I was in Betong on that day (in a bus to be exact) from Betong heading back to Sibu, then Kapit.
  • I was waiting for the pics that are going to be posted here 'arrived' via bluetooth from my students' phone, but they couldn't bring theirs when school is in session (sigh!)
  • I was hooked on FaceBook.
  • PSKPP teams from all over Sarawak were here and I am incharge (burden) with their penempatan, whims and fancies.. busy, busy, busy..
  • I am just plain lazy... hehehe
They (the theater casts and crews) throw a mini celebration that nite exactly at 0000hour with careful planning (and lying..). Uncle Own (hotel OWNer.. yup his name is Own) came upstair after hearing the "commotion". Lucky for us, he s a sweet guy and didn't throw us all out... hehe..

Thanks guys..
thanks for the cake,
for the gifts,
for the company,
for the laughter,
for the craziness,
for the silliness,
for understanding and for everything....
You guys really brighten my day....

Hmmm... Dalam 4 tahun aku bertambah 'muda' kat Kapit ni, tiba time harijadi jer mesti aku kat tempat yang berlainan..

24 July 06- Sibu, Premier Hotel ~attending Kursus PSK
24 July 07- Kuching, Water Front ~Pertandingan Drama Bahasa Inggeris Peringkat Negeri
24 July 08- Kapit, bawah rumah... ~bebudak drama buat surprise party
24 July 09- Betong-Sibu, ~heading back 'home' lepas pertandingan Teater BI, but
manage to spent 1 more night in Sibu


24 July 2010- aku kat Semenanjung kah??? ;(

Kenapala aku berat hati sangat nak balik.
Compared with Semenanjung, there is hardly anything here, so why the sad feeling?
Why? Why? Why?

Am I hooked to this unique land?

What about things that used to be important to me??
Entertainment... cinema... late nite supper..... nite life..... fast food restaurant.... Megamalls..


Happy Belated 28th Birthday to me.....

Words of caution: I am not bashing anybody here....

My dear brother celebrated his 39th birthday on 15th JULY.. and he made an interesting post/ discussion on his facebook.

Opinon pls. Would U work for Government with 1/3 of your current earnings???

Here are some of the interesting replies he got:

From my beloved sister, kak wiwi:

Definitely not as there is no way i can pay for my current commitment. Unless u got a lot of saving...then it's ok. Or...if u are actually nearing ur retirement and just wanna work to isi masa...
No way can manage with 1/3 salary la...unless..rumah free..api free...air free...sekolah anak free...lunch provided...then...ok...go for it !!!!

I am currently earning about 60% from my previous job...still sakit !!!

Sorry for kwn kwn in's just two different world...and mentality wise...puuhhh...their definition of bz is so kelakar...!!!!

From his friend, (known as Sheila AR)

i dont think u will survive even a day there.... Climbing up the ladder in gov isnt as quick as in private... And most important, r u willing to work wt 99% malays?

but then.. If tht is ur ambition, go ahead and gv ur 100%... Rezeki ada dimana2 yg penting usaha.. Good luck nel!

Then he answered:

My ambition is just for "Pension Entitlement" ha ha
Anyway .... the other path is to contest for "Wakil Rakyat" after age 55 lor....
After 1 penggal can get half pension, 2 penggal above , full pension ..
Undilah SAYA !! saya akan bagi tuan2 projek juta2 .. ha ha
jgn lupa DUN Kota Kemuning 2025 (kalau idup lagi ler...)

Yup.. I do thought (yes.. note the past tense) it was a very interesting discussion... after reading a few replies.. I decided to give him my "IMHO"

there s always two side of a coin... that is why the full question was "would u work for GOVERNMENT with 1/3 of your current earning" rather than "would you change job with 1/3 of your current earning" kan?

There is a saying that goes "you can't calld yourself a successful person until you are in love in what you are doing"
.... so IMHO regardless the pay... the crucial point is... are you happy with what you are doing now? ( I know i am..... that s y i m in this line.. but it isn't bout me kan kan?)

Money and future planning wise .. if you (my dearest bro and the whole family of yours) can ADAPT with the financial changes (with a few MAJOR tweaks) there s nothing wrong with it (1/3 salary) because in a long run you and ur spouse ( kak nina and future spouses hahaha jangan mara) will have a 'safety net' in case something bad ever happen to you (knock wood!) whilst in the other hand.. you can only depend on your rigorous saving (if any) and any nest you are currently weaving.

and added

. and also IMHO it is a cliche when we say that GSs have a different mental attitude than pvt etc.. because many of us by majority.. only see or interact with the front counter personals in any governmental industry (hence the probs: tutup kaunter cepat la, breakfast awal la etc-etc la) and that is where this perception arise and being established whereas the rest of us (be it a doctor, an educator, architect etc) (yang duduk jauh-jauh ke belakang nih) perform our job with the same level of dignity and difficulty of any personal in pvte sector.
..and what is wrong with working with a specific race? If you stay focus, goal oriented and willing to take risk (like in any other jobs), any job can be easily executed and performed..
Bottom doesn't matter who you are working with or who you are working for...(gov, pvt, malay, chnse etc) but WHAT are you working for??.. is it for FUTURE FINANCIAL SECURITY? SHORT TERM WEALTH? ENJOYABLE LIFE? STATUS QUO?


Each option comes with different planning and it is you to decide whether to take up the challenge ( after establishing every boons and drawbacks)... so good luck in deciding the future of my anak buahs... haha..


and added some sarcastic joke to liven up my replies...

ps: nak pi early lunch lah

There is a saying.. with age, comes experience...

A reply from Kak Wiwi (read: thanks):

A wise and well construct advise. Surprise it's coming from my youngest bro.(ha..ha...juz kidding)
Anyway...i salute u and i believe that you are the only one (or may among 10) dedicated public servant. A good , dedicated, honest and hardworking teacher who becomes a teacher for the love of the job. All rise and salute...!!!!

Yeah maybe for some people ...

My bro replied:

Ha ha ha

& qoute Sheila" And most important, r u willing to work wt 99% malays?"unqoute

Qoute "..and what is wrong with working with a specific race?"unqoute... Read More

Only those who have worked with MNC, or non Malay majority Co can apriciate this question.

For those yg straight away work with Gov or 99% Mal,... dificult to explain to lar ... too bad.
they will never ever understand the diferent in REALITY !
stakat 'assumed' je boleh la kot...

and my famous last words??

Oh... Sorry... my mistake..
I thought this was an intelligent discussion not some sort of gov or pvt bashing... my mistake... sorry again...

Hmmm.. happy belated birthday my dearest Brother....

Blame The Student or His Upbringing??

Hamun pengetua

Oleh Sarah Zulkifli
AMPANG: Cukup biadab apabila seorang pelajar lelaki sanggup menghamburkan kata-kata kesat kepada pengetua sekolahnya sambil disaksikan puluhan rakan serta seorang guru yang sedang mengajar dalam kelas berkenaan di sebuah sekolah di sini.

Tindakan kurang ajar itu dilakukan pelajar tingkatan tiga berkenaan sejurus pengetua berkenaan memberitahu mengenai tindakan buang sekolah yang dikenakan terhadapnya.

Perbuatan spontan pelajar berusia 15 tahun itu dianggap keterlaluan kerana dia tanpa segan silu memaki-hamun pengetua wanita berusia 50-an itu.

Difahamkan, dalam kejadian jam 7.45 pagi Selasa lalu, pengetua berkenaan pergi berjumpa pelajar terbabit bagi memaklumkan dia akan dibuang sekolah kerana masalah disiplin serius.

Sumber memberitahu Harian Metro, sebelum itu, pengetua berkenaan terserempak pelajar terbabit di pintu pagar sekolah lalu meminta dia datang ke pejabatnya bagi membincangkan hal berkenaan, tetapi tidak diendahkan sebaliknya remaja itu terus masuk ke kelas.

What The Frog!!!???

This is the kind of News that makes me sick to the stomach and made me think twice (or more) whether to pindah to Semenanjung or not...
the student who did this is a snob, vulgar, disrespectful and an idiot!!!

Hope I will never ever encounter such students... Amin...

Funnnny and Dirrrrty and Yucks

Have you ever notice in your Yahoo Mail account, just beside your avatar (if you have one) that there is this blank bar that says:

"What are you doing right now?"

....and because I am quite familiar with the one on my FacebooK's Wall:

"What's on your mind?"

.....which I usually write:

  • Burning my midnite oil
  • Tired
  • Lotsa works
  • Lapar

etc.. etc..

and which will print/share it as wysiwyg ...... so

on the yahoo account "what are you doing right now" I entered

"working my ass off"

and you know what the words that came out when I hit the POST button???

"Friday is working my ass off"


Stupid and funny and gross!!

My first "Heart Attack"

Tuesday, 07 July, 1214

Words of caution:

You need to read the previous posting first (Play Dirty... & Rot in H$ll!!!) or else you won't be able to understand this posting....


No.. not a real one.


if that is how a heart attack really feels like... I wil start jogging and do my cardio exercise religously...

the reason??

You see.. if u've read my previous posting... waddaya think bout this excerpt??

"If your school is so good then why gotta find stupid invalid reason to disqualify the real champion team.............."

U will think this is a reply to that previous post rite??

Ya... ya... me too....

I think so too....

and to make the matter "interesting"...

.....It (the excerpt) appears inside the lil' window that I install (down at the right corner there) that feeds excerpt from other blogs alongside my blog.....

So my first reaction??????

OMG!! Why now? Why her?

Nobody ever read my blog.. (except a handfull of my friends, some virtual friends... and you of course... thank you very much ;-) )

So how come there s a reply @ blog post come from nowhere questioning my post/blog/opinion??

Then... I regained my courage and click it.... (actually I asked my dear friend to click on it and read it while I am covering my face with my two hands haha)


Suddenly we (my friend and I) realised...

it doesn't have anything to do with my previous post...

or any of the post.... fact.. it doesn't have anything to do with me... hahahaha

This is the rest of her post...

If your school is so good then why gotta find stupid invalid reason to disqualify the real champion team just 2 push yourself to be in 3rd place?

Too weak to grab 3rd place?

Too thick skin to do all this sins .

Everyone saw our abilities .

Everyone knows who is the real champion .

Does every competition your school host played tactics ?

Maybe? Defitenitely?

What if my school team didn't disqualified ?

You can't even get 3rd place.

Not their school students' fault .


The one who lead the whole unit .

The judges is not blind.

We won ourself.

We was sure by others that we are the champion.

I think everything will be fine soon.

We will see who will win in the end .

The posting (as I figure out) was about a school girl that was unsatisfied with the judges (or maybe other schools) of a competition ( a marching band aka brassband competition maybe?)

Aiyoh.. really thought somebody was referring to my previous post....
I don't want to make enemy...
just want to express my feeling here... virtually....
like I said on my very first posting... remember....

I have a lot of 'hangin' (anger).. and needs a way to release the steam off... and this is my way....

Somehow... for a reason...

..... the Higher Being is serving me a scare tactics...

so that I will watch what I wrote...

..and making sure nobody will get hurt or offended with my posting...

although what I said and wrote were true....

I still need to consider other people feeling...

maybe I should stay true with the saying...

"Treat people the way you want..........."


Ok.. ok there is more

"Treat people the way you want to be treated....."

I will try my best.. from now on.. this will be my new resolution....


Play Dirty... & Rot in H$ll!!!

Why am I soooo stressed these days??


The Theatre Competition that is supposed to be held on 9th JULY has been dragged to the 16th...
And the State Level will be held on the 21st...

So what seem to be the problem... you may asked?

The school that organise this really had bent the rule as they wish... Sepatutnya peringkat bahagian tak boleh dibuat terlalu hampir dengan peringkat Negeri.. it will create a lot of problems such as tempahan penginapan, makanan, pengangkutan etcetera-etcetera.. (to whichever team yang mewakili) untuk ke peringkat Negeri.

When I told them this probs... their answer:

So you nak tarik diri ke? Memandangkan hanya 2 teams saja yang bertanding... kami akan wakili bahagian jika you tarik diri... BULLSH*t!!

Aku rasa team ni sengaja cari pasal... other schools didn't participate sebab masa ditanya tentang pertandingan ni awal-awal dulu... The said school cakap dorang tak tahu apa-apa-lah..... bukan sekolah dorang yang organise-lah.. Tiba-tiba on 24th June, datang surat jemputan untuk pertandingan on 9th JULY.. so sekolah-sekolah lain memangla tak participate.. MAngkok betol!! mana sempat nak latih bebudak in mere 2 weeks.. Manakala sekolah aku.. memang ada Drama Club yang aku usahakan secara haram... (hehe) maksudnya un-official club lah...

Bila dia tahu sekolah aku bertanding (tak sangka la kot.. dah main tipu sangat), dorang drag lagi jadi 16hb... Pergh!! Bengang!! Bengang!! Sebabnya... 9hb July tetiba air sungai Rajang naik.. boleh guna jalan air untuk pergi sana (which translate into cheaper budget). Dorang ingat air "langkang" kot time tu?? (so kitorang kena guna jalan darat yang sah-sah budget tinggi) Tu yang ubah lagi...

Aku stressed gila..

  1. Kalau ini melibatkan orang dewasa sahaja takpe la jugak, ni melibatkan students yang begitu eager dan tak sabar-sabar nak bertanding. Dah lah bebudak training dari 1900-2230 tiap malam... every expression, gesture and intonation need to be perfect (cewah!!) kata dorang..
  2. Budget keluar untuk reka setting dan buat props dah dekat rm350, which I carefully planned supaya tak exceed rm400...
  3. Apa aku nak gtau dorang and their parents nanti?? They ve spent soooo much time rehearsing... since MARCH!!!
  4. yang pentingnya.. kalau tak jadi pegi.. aku tak sanggup nak bagitau budak-budak ni sendiri.. tak kan nak sms kot?? kang aku plak nangis depan budak-budak ni (seriously!!)

4th placing (kalah kepada MIRI, MUKAH, & SARIKEI... tetapi KUCHING dapat no. 5 hahahaha)

Organiser buat macam ni plak... Peng-kecut.. Bukan nya kitorang hebat sangat pun... (kalau pun hebat.. that is all because of the students hardwork.. bukan main kotor.....) itu sebab buat pertandingan dulu... Kalau dorang menang sebab memang layak menang takpelah.. (the said school, tak pernah bertanding since 2006)

So kepada the said school.. kalau team aku tak pegi sebab benda-benda ni...
Good luck le ye...

May you rot in H$((!!
