It has been nearly 2 weeks since the schooling calendar of 2012 commenced. Mixtures of mirth and melancholy intertwining as I got to meet up beloved colleagues and pupils again; sharing and updating whats-hot-and-not. This year, I’ve been entrusted to become the Supervisor (Penyelaras) for Year 4 – which means I am responsible to take care the charities and necessities of Year 4 pupils and teachers; apart from that, I’ve also been appointed as the Discipline Teacher (Year 4) and also the Secretary of Science Panel. At this juncture, everything is still manageable.
Bambi’s mother died. Shot by a hunter.
But what hit me was that I learned that Nasar, my ex-pupil had lost his mother during the end-of-year school break. Nasar was my ex-pupil from 5 Gallant (I was the class teacher) & I also thought him English when he was in 4 Flexible. So, the idea of knowing the mother who I’ve met when I was the class teacher died was a bit melancholic for me. Furthermore, Nasar is an active and helpful pupil; though not the cliche-academically-brilliant pupil; but everyone likes him because of his helpfulness and easy-going attitude. I did joke around with him on the first day of the school and he was acting his usually jolly goofiness – and later in the Teacher’s Room that I’ve learned from Kak Lin that Nasar told her that his mother had passed away! Like an arrow piercing through the heart, I was sad for him and at the same time, admired the courage facade he put when he himself has to deal with the demise at such a tender age of 11 years old. I called him and gave him encouraging words. May ALLAH SWT bless the soul, Insya ALLAH….
Anyway on the other event; on 14th January 2012 I’ve decided to watch a live badminton match at Putra Indoor Stadium. It was a spontaneous one; and since I’ve never seen one live before, why not take the opportunity, aite? Never expect that badminton matches could attract crowds thronging (I used to think that only football matches are able to – since before this I’ve only seen live football matches!) and you could see Malaysians (and non-Malaysians too) from different races, religions and statuses came together gracing the matches. It was indeed a high time of patriotisme and I am boldly declaring that sport is one of the strongest channel to cement the bonds of unity amongst our Malaysians!
Datuk Lee Chong Wei’s match was around 8.20 P.M. but crowd flooded the stadium as early as 6.30 P.M. Seeing Datuk Lee Chong Wei smashed the shuttlecock against the China man, Chen Long was ethereal! Malaysians together chanted and yelling for Lee Chong Wei’s name and also when he was about to serve the shuttlecock against Chen Long! And true to his title as world’s No.1, Datuk Lee Chong Wei beat the hell out of Chen Long’s ass! Yeeha!
Honestly, I really enjoyed the game. It’s actually good when you have people who are very into sports and outdoor activities. They sometimes influence your life too by introducing that side of the world to you. Thank you so much!
Anyway; on the highlight of the entertainment world – Malaysia’s No.1 chanteuse Siti Nurhaliza has been immortalized in the History Channel Asia via a documentary chronicling about her journey to become a successful figure as what she is today. From a humble beginning in a typical Malay atmosphere, she rose to fame by winning a singing competition in RTM and never looked back eversince. Elevating the life status via her successful career as a singer, she now emerges as a wealthy businesswoman; all due to her own accord. I always admire that – how she transformed her Middle Class origin into an elitist. It’s not easy and takes a lot of hard work. I guess all Middle Class people like me can relate to that and feels close to her due to her humble origins – synonymous like us. After all, Middle Class people retain authentic values rather than the already-served-with-silver-spoons-rich-brats, aite? (,”)
On the eyes of Hollywood boulevard; so happened that the Golden Globes 2012 just ended. I was totally deluded an unaware about it ever since I no more watched ASTRO and E-Channel. It has always been my personal tradition to peruse the events prior to the Oscars and witnessed it live via television last time. Now, of course no more. Still, having tonnes of paparazzis’ websites in Internet helped to keep myself abreast with the commotions! This year, Angie and Pitt attended The Golden Globe as Angie represented her first directorial debut, “In The Land Of Blood Honey”– which was nominated for Best Foreign Film whereas Pitt in “Moneyball” as Best Actor-nominated.
Amazing ainnit? Look at the composed posture. She’s just so cool. Angie!
With her white-red Atelier Versace, Angie stole the show again (she loves Atelier Versace, if you noticed!) and most of the reviews picked her as Best Dressed; along candyman Pitt. Angie is always the best. She looks chique in her worn-off jeans and shirts but elegant in gowns. And also an angel in heart. An aspiration, she is!
Angie and Pitt seemed bored with Seacrest. I understood. Seacrest is so superficial-obsessed. Angie, on the hand cares about humanitarian and don’t think much about Hollywood. She’s cool (,”)
