Have a nice day....

Greetings From SATUN, Thailand...

I had an overnight stay in Satun, Thailand. It's a small town in Southern Thailand. Not much activities going around in this small fishing town, but the food is nice and very cheap.. Even the hotel rooms are cheap..
The Malaysia-Thailand Border at Wang Kelian.
 The Custom's Check Point...
 The quiet town of Satun..

Is SEX a CRIME??

SEX  ADDICTION

I can't help but feel sorry for our Mr. Tiger Woods...
Tiger Woods had to apologise for his sexual transgressions with a bevy of blondes and brunettes. He had to express his sorrow and regrets over his actions, not just to his wife, family, friends and fans (including me), but also to mankind !!
Everyone from Honolulu to Kangar could see how "sorry" he was and the major problem he faced... And that problem is "sex addiction"... Mr. Woods had certainly helped propel the term "sex addiction" to the fore.
What is it?? Is it a medical disorder? Or is all in the head? Is it curable with rehab??
Now, these so called "sex addiction" is not funny. It's embarrassing to talk to anyone about it..
That's why in Islam, you are allowed to have 4 wives...(with the condition that you are rich enough to support all 4). Maybe God knew that men are sex addictors when they are rich!!!

But really, is Tiger Woods a sex addict needing professional help?
My guess is as good as yours....
Get rich first, and you'll see the problem !!!

Have a nice day.....

Debate is NOT a Sport !!!

There is already "purposely-made" confusion in schools... Everybody, especially teachers, are making their own assessment on the new implementation of "one student-one sports" directive, which will go into effect soon....
And those lazy students and teachers (mind you) are making their own rules....
Debat is also considered a sport !!!! Hah, ha.....
Choral Speaking is considered a sport !!! Hah, ha....
The Red Crescent is a sport !!! Hah ha....
Worst still....: One teacher told her students: "You can choose between Sports and a Uniform Body..." (This lazy teacher is making her own rule..!!).

Well..., Education Minister...., be prepared to have these "negative-thinking" teachers around !!!

Have a nice day....

Unusual Hot and Dry in Kangar...


For the past few weeks, it is unusually hot and dry in Kangar, Perlis...
For a place situated near the equator and have a climate that have rain throughout the year, it is unusual to have such a dry spell for so long a time... Something is not right here...

Have a nice day....

ONE STUDENT = ONE SPORT ??

 

Heboh satu Malaysia....!!!
From next year onwards, each student, whether primary or secondary (including Form 6), must take up a sport. It is compulsory... That's what the Education Minister said yesterday...
I think, something is missing here...
1. Why next year? It's already late.. Why not today....?
2. Make it a compulsory subject and as one of the condition to enter university. If you are serious, then let's do it seriously..!!!
3. Apart from the "one student = one sport" , every student must involve in "Track and Field"(Olahraga). This point should be stressed !! Track and Field is the mother of all sports.

During my school days, this was the "law". I carried that law to the school I was teaching during my early teaching days, and that school is a "Sports School" today !! I even composed the school song that has sports as a "must" in the lyrics of the song. And that spirit stays forever and ever......

Dermarians...get ready for the change!!!
Have a nice day....

HAT YAI.... Shopping...

I went to Hat Yai, Thailand, again for a short stint. Just to do some shopping with two other friends...
This place is really something...
Roti Canai is available in Hat Yai..but it cost RM2 per piece...
 Express buses are also available, direct from KL, even Singapore....
 These pieces of "water melons" costs RM20 each......
 There's a lot of hotels in Hat Yai...., don't worry...
 The Traffic in Hat Yai city..
Food is a plenty in Hat Yai, but don't be surprised at the price of each dish or item.
I ate two pieces of "Roti Canai" and a cup of Tea for breakfast. It cost me RM6.50. In Malaysia, the same thing only cost me RM3.00 the most...
Well..that's it.

Have a nice day....

One of My Precious Belongings.....

I found an old manual file (brown paper file) while doing some room cleaning this morning.... And, guest what??
I found the original score of the school song which I composed in 1985. That's 25 years ago.....
Well....what can I say...
It brings back memories....

Have a nice day......

TIGER WOODS Apologizes....


Superstar golfer Tiger Woods publicly apologized on Friday for his infidelity to his wife, Elin, saying he was deeply sorry for his irresponsible and selfish behaviour.

“I was unfaithful, I had affairs, I cheated. What I did was not acceptable and I am the only person to blame,” Woods said at his first public appearance since admitting he cheated on his wife and announcing in December he was taking an indefinite break from golf.

He said he intended to return to professional golf one day, but just don't know when that day will be.
The 34-year-old American was speaking to reporters at the headquarters of the U.S. PGA Tour in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

He defended his wife and denied media speculation that there had been physical violence between the couple. The speculation arose after a bizarre minor car accident outside his Florida home Nov. 27, when he ran his SUV over a fire hydrant and into a tree.
“Elin never hit me that night, or any other night. There has never been an episode of domestic violence (in our family),” Woods said.



Whatever it is, Tiger...you're still the Best Athlete... And that's a fact ...
Good Luck, Tiger...
Have a nice day....

TIGER WOODS spotted Jogging....



Tiger Woods may not be out of the woods just yet, but you can tell that the comeback is on. Shortly after announcing on his website that he's planning a "no-questions-allowed" press conference for Friday, the embattled golf great was spotted jogging near his Orlando home.
Getting his stamina up for that long slog back to respectability......,which, lucky for him, probably would coincide with a major tournament win.Which one? You just have to wait...
This is the first time Mr.Woods has been photographed in public since that still-murky day-after-Thanksgiving car crash turned his life upside down.
Go Tiger, Go... Forget about the past and....start golfing !!!!!
Have a nice day......

Nasi Bungkus untuk Kursus Guru...

 NASIB GURU GURU 2010....

Guru-guru yang menghadiri kursus atau latihan di bawah anjuran Jabatan Pelajaran Negeri selama ini menikmati hidangan bufet ketika rehat dan makan tengah hari, boleh melupakan amalan itu.. Kini, hanya disediakan nasi bungkus dan air mineral untuk makan tengah hari dan sepotong kuih dengan air teh atau kopi untuk minuman pagi atau petang...
Difahamkan, untuk seharian kursus tanpa bermalam, peruntukan untuk makanan hanya RM4 sehari...NUTP mengakui kebenaran ini (Berita Minggu, m/s 17,  Ahad, 14 Februari,2010), dan mendedahkan Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia sudah mengurangkan peruntukan untuk kos latihan dan kursus guru. Juga, TIADA lagi peruntukan untuk aktiviti sekolah dan majlis seperti sambutan Hari Guru...(OMG !!!!)

Guru-guru yang telah menghadiri kursus pada awal tahun ini, telah mengakui bahawa mereka dibekalkan sepotong kuih dan secawan kopi atau teh untuk minum pagi dan petang, manakala nasi bungkus satu lauk dan sayur dengan air kosong untuk makan tengah hari.....(OMG 2!!!)
Patutlah...RM20 juta telah di beri kepada 20 SBT (Sekolah Berprestasi Tinggi) baru-baru ini.....(OMG 3 !!!)
Dan untuk bayar gaji 365 guru-guru pakar/import dari UK dan Australia yang akan mengajar Bahasa Inggeris secara pendekatan baru mulai tahun hadapan......(OMG 4 !!!)

Hmmm... just have to accept the facts... No offence to KPM...
Have a nice day, anyway....

Can Australia do That?? Why...??


It was reported that more than 50 Australian lawmakers had lodged a formal protest, urging Malaysia to drop Anwar's sodomy trial.
Member of governing Labor party Michael Danby handed the protest note to Malaysian High Commissioner Salman Ahmad in Canberra on Friday, 12th February 2010. (Bernama reports)

I'm NOT into politics.. Just curious.. Can Australia do that?? Why..???
Perhaps, my friends from Australia can explain, I suppose....

Have a nice day....

MALAYSIA'S LOTUS F1 RACING...

Finally...., the Malaysian Dream.... The Lotus F1 Racing's Lotus Cosworth T127...

Lotus has just unveiled its 2010 Formula 1 car as the historic British automaker returns to the top tier of motorsports after a very long absence. Backed by the Malaysian government, the new Lotus team will field two cars, driven by Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen.
Earlier in the week, the car made its first test laps during a shakedown session at the famous Silverstone track in the U.K., piloted by test driver, Malaysian Fairuz Fauzy.
The 2010 F1 season is shaping up to be an interesting one with three other rookie teams (Campos, Manor and US F1) joining Lotus to make up a 26 car grid. The season starts March 12 in Bahrain.

Good Luck to the Lotus Team...
Good Luck Jarno Trulli, Heikki Kovalainen and Fairuz Fauzy....
Good Luck Tony Fernandes......

CHINESE NEW YEAR HOLIDAYS...


Nine days !!!  Yup, 9-day holidays for almost all schools and Higher Institutes of Learning in Malaysia,  in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebrations.. That's long...

Luckily, one of my former students was an officer at the counter and she helped me proses the documents. If not, it would have been 4 hours!!! I might be going to Songkhla this coming few days...

By the way, wishing all my Chinese friends and students a "HAPPY NEW YEAR"........

What's so Special about SMK Derma??


At least three of my students who did very well in last year's PMR (public exam for secondary year 3) came back to SMK Derma after spending a week in their new school. I'm wondering why??
These few students (not more that 10) were offered places in selected residential schools all over the country... Some refused to take the offer in the first place. I think 5 or 6 of them took the offer and three have came back..
I guess SMK Derma has something special.....

Whatever guys...., have a nice day....
