A Week of Bliss

I'm wondering if I'm going to get 100 comments on my birthday since there's lesser commentors nowadays. *hint hint*

People, 6 more days yeah. Go write it down on a Post-it Note and stick them on your monitor.
5th of November.

*poke own face* Wah... Very tebal oh.

I love my Buddha.

Everytime when something bad happened and pulled me down giving me thoughts of giving up (for blogging), something better will occur and raise me up.

Not going to talk about what happened that made me felt so pek-cek (translation: irked) but I'm going to share with you what make my week.

Yes! WEEK!
Not day.


My humble blog is Simpur Blogging Nation's featured blog this week!

Ever since Simpur started this whole blogging nation thingie, I had wonder if any day under any circumstances that my blog will get featured or not. And after 3 seconds of dreaming,

"Neh... There's nothing special about my blog. What for they want to feature me?"

But my dream comes true. Spiritual Garden is featured.

Thanks BN! You guys totally rock!

Never in my life I dream of winning or achieving something.
The curse was finally broken.

* * * * *

And if that is not enough to make me happy for the whole week, here.... something else that had kept me happy whole day long.

I'd received gifts and cards from my students.

(Let me hear, "Awww..... so sweet")

Tell me what's there not to love about being a teacher?

Someone once told me that I could have get a better job other than teaching but I immediately disagreed with her. This is by far the best and coolest job I had in my life. Of course, there are other prices to pay but its all worth it when I saw students calling out my name from far, gave me that pleasant smile and greeted me.

Even worth it when they remembered what I taught and excel in their studies.

Nothing is more returning than seeing them improve and turning into a better person.

And if one day I see a student outside of school and he/she sees me from far and turn away to avoid me, that means I'm doing a bad job being a teacher.

(Actually that's what I did when I saw my teachers. I'll approach those I like and avoid I dislike)

* * * * *

Something to ponder...

Is it normal to have like 33 notifications in the Facebook?

Or it's just me being ignorant?

Facebook makes me dizzy and I have no idea how you guys get addicted to it! There's too many invitations and request to approve or ignore. Gah.... It just keep coming back!

I have.... 19 werewolves invitations, 13 vampires invitations, 9 fighter's clubs invations, (the lists go on and on) and I thought I'm already a werewolf-cum-vampire-cum-fighter-cum-zombie?


FYI, I logged in Facebook just to approve friends. I couldn't bother with the rest.

Oh Yeah! Let the notifications pile up till it reachers 100!

And no one is going to send request or invitation or draw on my wall anymore


Hungryduo said...

I get annoyed too for accepting those invitations to different types of applications!
There are just too many applications lar!
I ever get up to 50 plus notifications and i guess there are other people who got more in record.

@lex said...

LOL .. i got your record on FACEBOX's notification ! .. give up approving after the Nth times..

Jewelle said...

Eh, what do you mean you cannot win anything - you won the best personal blog what! So being featured in the Simpur is pretty much guarantee lah.

As for the Facebook - we are the same! I only approve friends and I kept getting poked and questions and don't know what else - those people have nothing to do lah! LOL

Iwan Sanchez said...

I've been reading this blog silently for quite some time now. Recently I decided to start commenting coz I think you deserve to know who your readers are. And I feel like I have to contribute some *motivation* so that you wont give up blogging. Hehe.
Really enjoy your blog even if we don't know each other in real life (but we have a lot of mutual friends heh)

De Pianist said...

before i was addicted to it,now not anymore..but then there's this mind game i've found recently,and i think i'm hooked up with it since i stop playing it for years..ha.=p

Nonnie King said...

Hunnie : Yeah lah! I really don't understand how people can get hooked approving and playing with those applications.


Chau : Cos I have great friends like you!

@lex : Eh, we're not friends already since you can't make it for the dinner. *humphhhhh*

Nonnie King said...

Jewelle : And that's by far the one and only thing I won.

Wah, you so daring terus say those people nothing to do. If I say like that sure kana "shoot" liao.

Iwan : Wah seh! Ganas also! Cannot lose, must get more than 100 to win. Hahhahahaaaa

I never check who keep flooding me those application request though, I just click "Friend's request" and the rest I ignore saja.

<- I'll sure tell Bobby that. Nonnie good teacher + gf + wife. He untung to have me. =p

Nonnie King said...

Leeshi : If only I have more readers like you.

And.. who are those mutual friends you're refering to? I wanna know eh, can?

I hope you heard only good things about me and not the bad one =p

Pau Lene : Nice ah those applications? I felt so pek-cek everytime I tried forcing myself to clear those notifications away la.
