And I'm here again

hey babes.

it's been years since the last post eh? I am now teaching in a Chinese school in Sarawak. It was so hard to cope up with the pupils as they were still trying to cope up with me.

Sometimes, i tried so hard to make sure that t they understand the words that came out from my mouth. The thing is, 59% of the pupils are Chinese and another 40% are the natives and 1% of Malay. My only concern now is that the communication barriers that we have play a big roll in determining on whether the learning teaching process goes well or fails.

I used a lot of body language, face mimic and body gestures to support my teachings in the class but those are useless if the pupils were not even listening. That leads me to the only thing that i should emphasize-the set induction which i've abandoned for so long since i left the institution.

I'm staying with another 3 peninsular teachers who teach in secondary school. They are ok...2 are from Johor and the other one is from Kelantan. When i first arrived here, the roof on top of my room was in a bad condition. It leaked badly when it rained. Therefore I had to sleep on the couch in the living room because I couldn't buy a bed yet until the roof was fixed. And as im typing this post, I still haven't gotten myself a bed even though I fixed the room and painted the walls. I'm too traumatized that t. he roof will leak again and I'd find myself one night wet.

But, i already bought myself a fan, and it will be delivered soon. At least I won't get sweaty whenever I change my clothes in the room. Gonna get myself a bed soon n start living well again.

haha.

As far as the relationship between me and Froggy, there are times when we feel that this long distance relationship that we're having is testing us in every way to make us feel bad and iffy. I'm thankful enough that I have the phoneline and the internet as mediums of communication between the two of us. But when those are not working well, it's a madness i tell you. One thing about this place that I'm at now, everything is so limited. Like for instance, y Froggy sent me a postcard almost a month ago, and I haven't gotten it until now! Then he sent another parcel as a surprise and after two weeks i haven't gotten it, he had to tell me about it. And yes, I havent gotten it until now too~!

sigh.

He was furious about it. But i told him, whether the stuffs are here or not, i already felt appreciated with what he did.

I was told that the thought that counts anyway.

It was wonderful.It is a good article,thank you for sharing it.
More and more people like sports, because of sports can bring them the endless enjoyment.
But I have one suggestion. when you exercise, you must choose suitable clothes.
when you play nfl jerseys.It is better to wear player jersey which you loved him.
The Victoria's Secret and nike tn maxis the same important.The comfortable clothes ever,enough to make every day energetic.
An active, energetic young man works like a tiger.
