The best way to understand something is to...

"What about anger, love and pain?
And all the things you're feeling,

can you touch them with your hands?
So are they really there?" 
- Maher Zain, "open your eyes"

....experience it.

Since it's February -- a commercialized month-- here's a website for your reading pleasure :)

And what inspired me to blog about this was the discovery of a man who puts God first in his life, a woman's beauty secondary to her personality and values. Amazing! His name is Terence, Deborah's hero. :)

To lelek and Angeline, put your "Faith" in God's will.


Dear D,

   Conversing with Mun reminded me that even beauty and number of admirers won't able to over rule jodoh. Truely, love is given by its Creator.

The S word

Today we played "in my bag..." game.

In this game, a kid has to repeat countables/uncountables said by the kids who sat in front of him/her.
Example: if i say "In my bag, i have pencils," and pass the bag to the next person, that next person will have to repeat what i've just said and add in another countable/ uncountable thing. So the sentence would be "In my bag, i have pencils and erasers." Since fun is Motots' way to guide the kids in their learning, I told them that they cannot use common words such as "tables" or "rulers."

So, i started the game with "In my bag, I have chickens."
And then it was the Clown's turn, he said "In my bag, I have chickens and shits"
KHau repeated the sentence and added one more countable thing.
When it was YenQi's turn, she hesitated to say "shits."

"You don't have to say it, ..just say 'sheep'" .

She did.

Then it was ReiShen's turn.

He couldn't remember the countables and hence could not repeat them in order.

"Ah, you're out (of the game)!"  I said.

With both hands pushing the table for dramatic effect, and a realistic angry expression, he shouted,

"SHEEP !!!!"

Usually,  it's this type of children that brings headaches and joy. :)

Look, ma. No marker!

Who needs a pair of gloves....besides a dishwasher?

A mentor.


To strangle kids without leaving finger prints.

Just kidding.
A pair of gloves keep my hands clean and they can be used as an eraser for the whiteboard.

The clown in my class.

"Come and sit here." said the mentor while pointing towards a chair.

He hesitated in the corner of the room.
"They don't like me."

This came from the boy who brought laughter to the class room,
who dared to be different,
and who will be a great author someday.

The class clown. :-)
