My First Teacher's Day Card

I'm a happy teacher today.

*Big grin*

(The big grin only lasted for 5 minutes on my face, the happy feelings vanished so fast once I step in the lab, seeing naughty monkeys student walking and talking around, simply pressing buttons of the PC here and there..)

I received this *points below* today!

Oh well, it's not Teacher's Day yet in Brunei. We celebrate it on 23rd September in recognition of the good deeds of the teachers to the community, religion and the country. It is celebrated in commemoration of the birthday of the late Sultan Haji Omar 'Ali Saifuddien Saadul Khairi Waddien, the 28th Sultan of Brunei for his contribution in the field of education including religious education. (Okay, i admit I copy the paragraph somewhere)

Hehe. And it's an original hand-made card. It looks a bit messy but, we just can't expect too much from a Primary 4 student right?. It's the thought that counts~

Opening the card, I'd already spotted mistake.
Teachers. Thanks. You are best teacher.
(Am I suppose to share this card with others?)

My name spell wrongly too.
Cikgu Noni@ ?

And.. I think I look like Medusa here.
To ladies who wanna be teacher, keep long silky straight hair, or else student will find it real hard to draw, and end up either drawing Maggie Mee hair or "Snake Hair".

But still, no matter what, I love this card because it's ....

Note to myself.
Better start practice and speak more Malay...

Student A: Teacher Nonnie, macam ni cam tu?
Me: Sorry, what you said?

Student face looked blur like I'm talking Alien language.

Me: Boleh ulang sekali lagi?
Student A: Cikgu, ani.. boleh macam tu... (continue say long string of Malay which I only can catch 20%)
Me: (starred at student with ??? on my head)

Then the student who sit beside,says...

Student B: Hoi, cakap English bah. Cikgu tak paham tu...

. . . . . (Wind blow, leaf fly, crow fly by.... "Quak Quak Quak")

One big sweat from my forehead... follow by "three line"
like this -__-"'

So embarassing! I kana student ucap like that! Malu lah...

But normally I'll be cool and answer them...
"Yes, speak more so your English can improve. Very good."

And.. walk away with tongue stuck out.

Nonnie, Im going to be jahat for abit okeh?

The card looked as if the crayon-making machine exploded and your student stood infront of it with a piece of cardboard.


But hey, if your student was willing to risk their life for that dangerous position, then you must be an excellent teacher and the card is worth more then any Hallmark cards any day ;)

Nonnie King said...

Ness : Haha! Funny lah you. Manila card that got dirtied by crayon. Muahahaha

When I read the text inside.. my heart also melt liao..

But.. kasian, she didn't write her name and I can't remember who gave it to me!

Happy Teachers Day.
Seems your students loves you so much.
Well someone have gives me some tips in how to master other languages very fast. and i stiil used it until today.
First you need to repeat what that person said to you in a lower tone, it just like you talk back what that person said to you and see does you and that person get what that person are trying to say. then you could answer it.

second is learn some bad word from that languages.
