The 2nd phase of MBMMBI course was done spanning from 3rd of May until 5th of May 2011 at Institut Pendidikan Guru Kampus Bahasa Antarabangsa- the same as the 1st phase on April. This time around, meeting familiar face of new friends and garnering new knowledge on Reading Skill have been great opportunity and experiences. I also decided to stay at the institute rather than going back-and-fro to Serendah, Hulu Selangor. With that, I managed to have a longer sleeping time;without having to wake up as early as 5.10 A.M. and push off to KL at 6.10 A.M.!
A lot of carefree and sweet moment happened. For example, when we were about to enrol ourselves for the hostel, the clerk who was ‘so ever friendly- too friendly I guess’ lavished us with mystical stories that were quite creepy especially because the facades were old and you know, old places come with ‘old stories’! Put that aside, the 3-days stay was cosy and comfortable.
On Wednesday night, we went to watch “Thor” at Midvalley. Looks like Kenneth Branagh, the actor-who-now-turns-into-director has managed to persuade strings of Hollywood A-listers to join his maiden silver screen directorial debut. With the likes of Sir Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, Rene Russo, Idris Elba and many more, this movie is commercial-bedazzling; and newcomer Aussie leading man, Chris Hemworth injects the suaveness to the character although he was more or less simply grunts and parades machismo ego as the arrogant protagonist. Great CGIs and strong musical score arrangement; 3.5 stars outta 5 stars for “Thor”, I say!
After the exhausting 3 days-course, a drama unfolds! So happened that a ‘representative’ of the school where I took my Choral Speaking team (I can’t possibly state out the name of the school again because it could be used as another token to spark some belligerent argument! Geez!) found out about my blog and they were furious with my ‘lamenting’ on the insufficient MC of the day. Initially, I thought it was more of a blog-retaliation but turned out that the MC called my English Panel and to the extend that the Headmistress complaint to my Headmaster about it. All was ‘claimed’ to be an outsource of a person in PPD Hulu Selangor who somehow stumbled into my blog. Awww….a loyal scouter, I say. Fortunately, I have very open-minded, rationale and very professional GPK 1 and English Panel sisters. They understood that the siphoning wasn’t a personal attack but a mere reflection of a participant from the event.
As for me, I do find this thing quite an eye-opener as well as hilarious. Eye-opener to the what it feels like to work with seasoned Government civilian counterparts; hilarious to know the efforts taken just to convey their anger! Well, perhaps right after this, I will be a prime target if the Head accompanies my Head in our school functions and everything; but hey, I am not in the faulty side! God knows that and if the person in question intends to follow suits the Black Mark in the heart, God SWT will protect me; and I don’t quit either. Bring it on! Hahahaha!
Well, life as a Government civilian. Hearsays, authorities-exhibitionist and antiquated minds are in abundance; but let us squash that into smithereens and bring the new working etiquette into the Government line and culture. Hopefully. (,”)
Be professional when threading into personal. A subtleness can emerges into aggressive defensiveness. IF the envelope is being kept pushed and pushed. So, let it go.
