Teknik Mengajar Berkesan


Rasa macam nak menjerit sahaja apabila teknik yang saya gunakan dalam kelas dikatakan penyebab pelajar saya tidak ramai yang mendapat A dalam peperiksaan semester matrikulasi yang lalu. Setiap guru ada teknik mereka sendiri dan saya langsung tidak mempersoalkan teknik yang mereka gunakan dalam kelas.

Dikatakan saya melakukan banyak aktiviti yang tidak berfaedah kerana pada pendapat insan tersebut, saya sepatutnya melaksanakan P&P dengan lebih berkesan di dalam kelas. Apa maksudnya tu? = Sepatutnya saya harus banyak buat "Drilling" atau latih tubi. Ini kerana dapat membantu pelajar mendapat A dalam subjek Bahasa Inggeris.

Apabila saya bertanya kepada pelajar-pelajar kesayangan saya... mereka berpendapat kebanyakan aktiviti 'hands-on' yang saya lakukan dalam kelas membantu mereka untuk lebih berasa selesa menggunakan Bahasa Inggeris sebagai medium kedua percakapan harian mereka.

English Vinglish...

Because I had time last night, I had the chance to watch this interesting Hindi movie : English Vinglish.
...and I love Sridevi so much since I could remember.

But... the point is the storyline is quite interesting and it's kind of having a relaxation while watching the movie. It's all about Shashi Godbole (Sridevi) who is just an ordinary housewife who has a small business selling laddoos. Her husband and her daughter take her for granted and always complain about her poor ability in English language.

Luckily her son and her mother-in-law love her so much. One day, her sister who works in New York asked her to stay with her family for a month - for the wedding of her niece. There she learned that she has to do something about her English... so she took a four week course of learning to speak better English.

Things happened so fast during the four week and a French chef - Laurent - fell in love with her at the first sight (not knowing that she has a husband and children). They talked a lot with each other - about life, friends, family and love. She learned so many things as the students in that class came from different countries and they have to learn the language so that they can communicate with others easily (they came from different background and workplaces).

One thing that she learned when something happened between Laurent and her:
She has to learn to respect and appreciate herself first in order for her to be happy. Other people might take her for granted but she has to learn to love herself better. 

In a way... I feel enlightened after I watch that movie. I feel happy about myself although there are people who hate me for being ME. So... I learned that I should feel glad about who I am... what I have...about the people who love me dearly. For those people who hate me : You need to find someone else to be blamed for not being happy about yourself.

Alhamdulillah... life can be hard sometimes; but to endure it can be a bless in disguise.

Parting seems NORMAL... isn't it?

One more week... and I have to continue my life as a lecturer. Living far from my children bothers me a lot but what can I do...

My twins will be transferred to a new school next year due to their personal problems that can only be solved by their dad. Although my heart doesn't allow them to live far away from me, but my common sense asked me to do so.

Living as a working mother is not easy. You can ask anyone if you like and the answer would be the same - juggling things at the same time seems impossible but most working women can tackle them; one by one.

With the help of the husband, the house chores can be handled easily; but when you live with your children and your husband works somewhere else, it could be difficult for you to handle.

It has been two years for my twins and they didn't find Jengka that appealing. They requested to stay in Kuala Lumpur with their dad. It hurts me... but thinking that they will be happy with their dad and they promised me to study hard lead me to the decision of letting them go.

I know my decision seems cruel to my youngest daughter for she is really close to her brother. She would feel lonely without the twins and I would feel empty without them.

What can I do? -SIGH-

Marry Him If You Dare



The reason why I like this drama is because of there are so many talented people in it. The story revolves around 6 main characters whereby the future Na Mi Rae (Choi Myung Gil) from the year 2038 comes back to the year 2013 to make some amendments towards her unsuccessful marriage to Kim Shin (Lee Dong Gun).

The young Na Mi Rae (Yoon Eun Hye) is really surprised to learn that her future will not be as bright as she has imagined before. During her confrontation with her future self, her current state has somehow changed drastically.

Meanwhile, Park Se Joo (Jung Yong Hwa) fell in love with Na Mi Rae and they are entangled with Kim Shin who confessed that he also loves Na Mi Rae. But to make it interesting, the one who should marry Park Se Joo is Seo Yoo Kyung (Han Chae Ah) found out that something is wrong somewhere, so she started to investigate the relationship between the young Na Mi Rae with the old Na Mi Rae...

The story is quite refreshing and I love the way the story is being narrated. You should watch this if you like to watch them acting out their fascinating roles...

The Suspicious Housekeeper


A kind of serious Korean Drama if you like to have a change for your prime time. It is about Park Bok Nyeo (Choi Ji Woo) who lost her husband and her son in a tragedy caused by fire - her stalker Seo Ji Hoon (Song Jong Ho) was jealous of her happiness turned out to be the arsonist. Seo Ji Hoon changed his identity as Jang Do Hyung and he keeps chasing Park Bok Nyeo after that incident.

Park Bok Nyeo works as a professional housekeeper and her work is splendid. So when Eun Sang Chul (Lee Sung Jae) hired her, there are so many interesting events take place. Eun Sang Chul's wife committed suicide after learning that his husband has an affair with Yoon Song Hwa (Wang Ji Hye).

What I really like about this drama is the other side of Choi Ji Woo - she is really a brilliant actress and she managed to play her role tremendously! And the rest of the characters manage to make the drama interesting to watch...

Pakaian Kakitangan Awam...

Agak terkesima juga saya membaca artikel ini : http://tengoktvonline.blogspot.com/2013/11/pakaian-penjawat-awam-mencolok-mata.html

Tetapi pada saya, memang ada segelintir yang suka ber'fesyen' ketika ke pejabat - tak kira lah apa alasan yang diberikan oleh individu tersebut. Cuma memang jubah sekarang ni ada yang terlalu ketat sehingga menampakkan susuk tubuh. Bahkan ada seorang ustaz di tempat saya bekerja pernah mengeluarkan kata-kata sedihnya (lebih kurang begini), "Hari Jumaat adalah hari yang Seksi...dan Seksa..."

Memanglah berpakaian itu hak masing-masing, cuma yang menatapnya tidak mempunyai hak untuk memberi komen negatif jika terlalu menarik perhatian. Yang berhak menegur adalah suami / abang / atau muhrim individu tersebut.

Dan lagi satu...bertudung dan ber'fesyen' tetapi masih lagi terdedah... bab ini pun hanya yang layak sahaja boleh menegur. Kalau ditegur, umpama mencari nahas sesama rakan sekerja. Saya bukanlah alim sangat, tetapi ingin menjaga maruah suami, ayah, adik-adik lelaki dan anak lelaki saya.

Saya juga gemar ber'fesyen' dan selalunya saya akan meminta izin suami dahulu terutamanya jika ada majlis-majlis rasmi atau bertema... dan saya juga tidak salahkan kaum wanita kerana fesyen kan merupakan sebahagian perkara yang boleh memberi impak yang sangat besar terutamanya terhadap keyakinan diri mereka sehari-hari.

Terpulanglah kepada kaum wanita untuk membuat penilaian terhadap apa yang mereka pakai...saya pun wanita juga....:)

Minat orang... lain-lain...

Tiba-tiba terbaca komen seorang pengguna Facebook berkenaan dengan ketaksuban orang Malaysia dengan K-Pop sampai terbawa-bawa dengan bahasa Korea yang digunakan dalam kehidupan mereka seharian.

Pada saya, terpulanglah kepada minat masing-masing kerana itu adalah hak peribadi masing-masing. Dah nama pun media sosial, maka penggunanya berhak meletakkan nama samaran mereka dan tidak perlulah mengeluarkan 'statement' mengutuk mana-mana individu yang berbuat demikian.

Contoh terbaik dengan penggemar cerita Melayu : Love you Mr. Arrogant... mereka akan sentiasa bercerita tentang cerita tersebut walaupun sudah menutup tabir di kaca televisyen. Secara amnya, bukan semua rakyat Malaysia yang tergila-gilakan sangat budaya K-Pop sampai lupa budaya sendiri...

Saya pun minat juga dengan drama-drama Korea, tetapi tidak terlalu taksub sampai semua benda pun nak berwajahkan Korea... saya masih lagi berpijak di bumi yang nyata. Kalau anak-anak muda yang terikut-ikut dengan budaya K-Pop, ini mungkin disebabkan naluri muda mereka ingin mencuba sesuatu yang asing dan baru. Saya rasa, golongan yang sudah berusia dari mereka mungkin lebih arif dengan aktiviti cuba mencuba ni... mereka juga pernah bergelar anak muda pada suatu masa dahulu.

Sedikit sebanyak saya agak terasa juga dengan komen pengguna FB tersebut namun secara rasionalnya, lantak dia lah nak cakap apa pun sebab... minat orang ni tak sama!

Sakit yang tak Nampak...khas buat PENDIDIK


Boleh dikatakan kita akan mengalami stress sama ada di rumah, di tempat kerja, dalam perjalanan ke tempat kerja dan macam-macam lagi jenis perkara yang boleh mengundang stress.

Tetapi yang paling terasa adalah stress di tempat kerja di mana terlalu ramai orang ingin menunjukkan kehebatan diri masing-masing terutamanya di depan majikan. Manakan tidak, kalau di belakang majikan, bukan main hebat si dia berkata-kata, namun jika di depan majikan...pijak semut pun tak mati.

Stress memang ada bahayanya kerana penyakit ini sering melanda wanita yang bekerjaya dan yang sudah berumahtangga. Apatah lagi terpaksa melayan dua institusi yang memang berlainan kepentingannya - keluarga dan di tempat kerja. Berbanding dengan golongan lelaki yang mampu menzahirkan keinginan mereka secara mudah dan tepat.

Dugaan seorang ibu yang bergelar guru...

"Nama je anak pensyarah...pemadam pun tak mampu beli!"

Apabila anak lelaki saya ditempelak sedemikan rupa hanya kerana pemadam di penselnya sudah tiada dan membuatkan kertas soalannya hampir koyak... saya agak terkilan. Bukan besar sangat kesalahannya... namun kerjaya saya turut menjadi taruhan...

Akibat panas di hati, saya bertanya di forum FB milik sekolah anak saya. Akhirnya guru kelasnya membuat panggilan bertanyakan mengapa saya bertindak sedemikian rupa.

Jatuh Cinta LAGI

Perkara normal bagi setiap insan itu untuk jatuh cinta kepada insan yang lain. Cuma yang jadi masalahnya jika tidak kena tempat, waktu dan ketika.

Bayangkan kalau ada skandal di tempat kerja? Dah ada suami atau isteri... tetapi masih lagi tercari-cari skandal baru. Hmmm... meletus perang lah jawabnya.

Seeloknya;

Cinta kepada Allah S.W.T lagi indah...

Cinta kepada Rasul lagi didambakan...

Cinta kepada agama membawa keberkatan...

Cinta kepada pasangan hidup membahagiakan jiwa...

Cinta kepada ilmu menjadikan kita sempurna...

Cinta kepada diri sendiri demi mengelakkan perbuatan yang merugikan...

Cinta kepada sahabat mendamaikan...

Cintakan keluarga banyak manfaat...

Hakikat CINTA itu terlalu luas maksudnya. Hanya kita yang dapat mencari CINTA yang sejati jika diizinkan Allah S.W.T.

Jangan terlalu mencintai DUNIA tanpa merenung jauh ke AKHIRAT.

Jangan terlalu mencintai diri sehingga timbul RIAK dan EGO.

Jangan terlalu mencintai WANG sehingga timbul perasaan IRI HATI dan HASAD DENGKI.

Jangan terlalu mencintai NAFSU kerana kelak kamu akan dihimpit kelesuan.

Jangan terlalu mencintai pasangan kerana perlu ada sedikit perasaan curiga; manusia tetap manusia.

Hakikat diri ini: masih lagi belajar mencintai ilmu, diri sendiri, suami, keluarga, Rasul, agama dan yang paling BERKUASA...

The Heirs

One more Lee Min Ho drama - he is the cutest ever! :)

This time around he (Kim Tan) is the outcast son of a rich family who is transferred far away from his birth mother since he was young but still, he is one of the heirs that can inherit his family's fortune.

He lives in California with his best friend. He likes to dine in at a local bar/restaurant near the beach. There's a Korean waitress that always serves him when he was there. It turned out to be Eun Sang's sister. Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye) comes from a poor family background.

Her mother works at Kim Tan's house in Korea - serving his mother (they don't know the strings attached) and her mother is deaf. Working and earning money is a part of their daily routine but Eun Sang's sister doesn't care for she has to support her boyfriend in US.

So...after learning that her sister wants to get married, Eun Sang eagerly wanted to see her sister. But things din't go according to her plan. She has to overcome many difficult things once she arrived at the California's airport.

She met Kim Tan... and their story begins...

But the thing is; there are too many talented people in the drama and the story might be entangled with one another...you don't know what actually might happen next.

Students' EVALUATION

It is going to be the end of the first semester and the students have to evaluate the lecturers' performance for the whole semester. To tell you the truth; I don't really care about the evaluation because I know I had done the best I can to help my students.

There are changes in some of my students that sometimes amazed myself - they changed just because they feel they need to change; not because I told them to change. I'm just a mere teacher - who likes to help my students to become themselves and I will not force them to do the opposite!

Well... some of the comments did make me laugh my heart out; my cakes and my cupcakes were everywhere in the comment spaces.

I can be emotional sometimes but when I'm in class, I'd try my very best not to show my weaker point and I tried to smile every time I saw their faces. I like being surrounded by students who like to try out something new. They participated in every activity that I did in class and they can't wait to do different activities in class.

I don't really believe in orthodox ways in teaching English Language. The language itself can be hard on certain people and if I were to teach them using traditional ways, they will feel bored in my class. In leading them to a new journey full with fun and learning experience, I tried different methods and activities just to help them to acquire the language.

When I was teaching in schools, I used to have limited time in helping my students to acquire the language, but still I managed to do different activities in class - games, treasure hunts, language activities and so many more. So, I tried to apply the same activities here (in Matriculation) and the one hour given is a bless for me to make various interesting activities.

So...who said that English class is boring? You can ask that to my students!

Dwelling in the PAST

Thinking of my life here in Jengka does upset my feelings sometimes. I feel like being trapped in a really small place without any fun things to do. Although it might sound silly, I do miss my life back when I was in SMK Seri Garing - the chaos, the hustle and bustle, the naughty students and I do miss my house in Tasik Puteri.

I'm not really dwelling in my past, it's just a remembrance that I hold on for the past three years. I feel kind of lonely here without the one that I love the most...

People come and go... life is not as easy as it may seem and I have to endure so many things by myself. I guess there's nothing wrong if I like to sit back and reflect myself - what did I do wrong or what is actually my goal in life. There's no definite answer for it for I don't know how to begin with.

I do make mistakes and I don't intend to make the same mistakes in my life, but sometimes life is a cruel battle that I have to face it alone - just by myself. If you ask me, I would say that I'm not really enjoying my present. I love things that happened in the PAST.

I missed my friends, my dear students, my parents, my family, my CHILDREN... I know that I've neglected my children the most as I am struggling to help those students in need.

Sometimes I need a moment for myself and pat on my shoulders and say, "I have done the very best today!"
Well, some people are too blind to see that it takes a lot of effort to help others in need and the worst part is they will criticize you no matter what you do for the benefits of others.

Dwelling in the past does make me happy...:)

COLD Feet

You seem hard to breathe and you need more time to think. "What should I do?" Or even worst, "The butterflies seem to be crawling out from my stomach!"

Nervousness is actually normal to all of us; even if we are doing the things that we always do and somehow we do have cold feet before doing something important in our life.

I have something interesting for students who are going to sit for MUET Speaking test in October...

Good luck!

Who Are You?


One more new drama...an interesting drama full with suspense and anticipation. This time around, Cha gun Woo (Taecyeon from 2PM), a police officer helping out Yang Si Ohn (So Yi Hyun) to solve her case involving her dead boyfriend - whose spirit is lingering around her in order to protect her.

The story starts when Lee Hyung Joon (Kim Jae Wook) died when he was patrolling a smuggler's ship and somehow some higher ranked police officers were involved with his death.

Unfortunately, Yang Si Ohn (is also a police officer) was there when the incident happened. She got hit on the head which caused her to be in a comatose condition for six years. She lost her memories because of the incident.

After six years, she woke up miraculously and started to remember the incident bit by bit. Many incidents happen afterwards which lead her to the main cause of her boyfriend's death. Cha Gun Woo is helping her out and learned that the person that he admires the most is connected to the case.

For those Korean fans out there (especially Taecyeon's fans), this drama is quite interesting...you might want to watch this movie.

Master's Sun


My life will not be complete without Korean Dramas - although there are some people dislike them. This time around, the Master's Sun. The story revolves around Tae Yang (Tae Gong Shil) who can see dead people / ghosts and Joo Joong Won who is some kind of 'shelter for her.

Many scary but funny incidents happened on their way to find out the real culprit for the kidnapping case that happened 15 years ago.

Tae Yang just woke up after being bedridden for 3 years. She develops the ability to see ghosts and communicate with them. In her way to run some errand for a ghost, she met Joong Won and then their story begins.

This is not a typical Korean Drama (some scenes might be) and I like the fact that both So Ji Sub and Gong Hyo Jin were together in this drama. They haven't been in dramas lately and I do like to watch their works before.

For those fans out there... one more drama to be indulged...I know I do!

The casts : So Ji Sub, Gong Hyo Jin, Seo In Guk and Kim Yoo Ri.

Don't become a STRESSOR!!!!

Waiting for my students is actually a gift for me. I don't know why...but I like waiting for them to come to class and do so many fun things together. Although I have been teaching for 10 years now, the feeling is still the same - nervous and anxious of waiting for my students to enter the class and give their big smiles to me.

Recently I have to deal with so many stressors and I feel a little bit depressed with my surroundings. I feel a bit suffocated and can't really breathe smoothly. It could be that my nemesis is finally here or it could be that I can't take it anymore.

MUET is just around the corner and I'm nervous right now as I have tried my very best to help the students in all aspects as possible. But when the stressor is there smiling at me... I feel exhausted... as I'm dying helplessly right now.

I know... life is a battle...long journey ahead of us. The idea is to live the life to the fullest. But still, I hate those stressors who are just waiting there and wait for me to collapse and then they will be sneering to my face. I hate that Feeling!

I feel blessed to have so many students to help me to ease my heartaches since day one I was here. I feel like I still have them sitting next to me... having fun in English Class whereby they can do mostly anything as long as they are learning the language...

And you know what...I miss them every single day....

Students can't be TRUSTED...

I was quite furious when I heard that above statement mentioned by one of my colleagues. Is it necessary to make that assumption when you are not having many classes in your weekly schedule? And the saddest part was that... that person has many years of teaching experience.

I wonder...why did that particular person mentioned it in a very important meeting? Is it because of the pressure? Is it because the students? Or is it just because to put some kind of shield before being attacked by other people?

But still, in my opinion; students do have their strengths and weaknesses - it is just that they don't have the chances to show the good side of them. Who are we to judge them just by looking at their exam results? It doesn't prove anything. It could be that they were stressed out during that exam, or perhaps they didn't do their very best on that day.

To me... they need guidance for they are just in the pre-U level. They are not ready yet after being released from their warm nest. Guide them for a few months and slowly let them to fly on their own - it will not hurt a teacher's pride for helping them like that.

I am really exhausted of listening to EXCUSES made by certain people when they don't really care to step in and ask the students what is going on in their life. I have taken few steps in helping my students and guess what - it really works! They trusted me and they shared their problems in a order to become a good human being; not just a mere STUDENTS.

As an educator, it is our job to nourish, nurture, guide, help and do what ever that we can to make sure our students will become someone that we can be proud of someday. And believe me... they will remember those who have helped them along the way...

When the students FAILed

My life seems hectic nowadays... I don't really have the time to write anything or spend sometimes with my blog.

Having three kids does make me tired sometimes, but not as tiring as those unwanted 'jobs' that I have to do for I am the head of English Unit in my work place.

Recently, the results (all subjects) of our mid-sem test were not really appealing and sorry to say...the lecturers were blamed and there's no room to argue on that. I'm not saying that we have done our best to teach our students; but to blame all lecturers is quite beyond expectation.

Lecturers are human beings (we are teachers/educators) and we do have good and bad sides - like others do. But to some of us who have given everything just to make sure all students were treated the same and received the same amount of good lessons, the negative comments made by our superior did hurt our feelings.

I was quite depressed at that particular time as they were asking me the reasons for their failures for I did know the reasons and I purposely didn't want to reveal any of them to my superior. I just kept quiet for the rest of the meeting until one of them looked at me and asked, "Why are you being like this?"

My answer was simple, "I'm depressed - silent helps me to think better!" Then I went out from the room.

For those who know my personality...they would know that I would defend my friends/colleagues and my students but this time around, defending them would be my biggest mistakes as I know what is going on lately.

So...my biggest concern is for my students who are going to sit for the MUET exam and PSPM exam this coming October. I don't want to put the blame on anyone but to come up with a good plan on how to help those poor students (which only I know their situations).

But still...I wonder why those people like to put the blame on others when they have already known the issues that we are dealing with right now. They have the power to change something, but they would rather say few negative things/comments - hoping the lecturers would be more motivated by that. I'M NOT MOTIVATED BY BAD COMMENTS though!

Opah Long...

Memang seronok beraya bersama keluarga walaupun ada kalanya stres di atas jalan raya. Mana tidaknya, masing-masing mengambil peluang untuk beraya di rumah sanak saudara, jiran tetangga dan sahabat handai.

Walaupun saya hanya bercuti selama seminggu (sebelum dan sewaktu raya), saya sempat bertandang di rumah Pak Cik dan sepupu di Perak. Suami pun turut berkunjung di rumah teman baiknya di Trolak, Perak.

Rumah Pak Tam di Ipoh
Tujuan saya ke Perak adalah untuk berkunjung ke rumah anak sepupu yang pernah bersekolah di Tanah Merah pada 1995. Sejak 1996, kami tidak lagi bersua muka setelah di pindah ke rumah ibu bapanya di Perak.

Apabila sudah 18 tahun tidak berjumpa, terasa ingin menyambung ikatan persaudaraan walaupun hanya ikatan saudara jauh.

Berjumpa Mak Yong (sepupu) yang pernah bertugas di Tanah Merah (nurse) membuatkan saya terharu. Mengenang susur galur keluarga ayah di Perak menyedarkan saya bahawa saya masih ada saudara mara di Perak.

Rumah Mak atau Rumah Mertua?

Salam lebaran buat semua umat Islam di mana sahaja anda berada. Moga dengan kehadiran Syawal yang dinanti ini akan lebih dirahmati buat kita semua.

Topik biasa sebelum pagi raya : Rumah Mak sendiri atau Rumah Mertua?

Bersama keluarga mertua di pagi 1 Syawal
Mungkin ada di antara kita yang sudah menyediakan jadual giliran pulang berhari raya sementelah pula rumah mak sendiri dan rumah mak mertua terletak jauh antara satu sama lain. Pagi tadi terlihat satu tajuk berita : 3 pasangan muslim bercerai dalam tempoh satu jam di Malaysia...Nauzubillah...janganlah benda tu terjadi dek kedegilan memilih tempat untuk beraya...

The man in the mirror

I am not a big fan of Michael Jackson, but I do love some of his songs. Although he is no longer with us performing his great acts... he will be remembered forever by his fans.

Looking at his lyrics of Man in The Mirror, I feel that as human, we need to make few changes in our life in order to become a better person in the future.

Let's take a look at few lines:

              I'm starting with the man in the mirror
              I'm asking him to change his ways
             And no message could have been any clearer
             If you wanna make the world a better place


Well...this is not meant for MEN only if you know what I mean by that...:)

I love this song for it has a deeper message for all of us as a human being. We cannot force others to change their attitude (especially bad ones) towards us, but WE can change OURSELVES in order to become a good human being.

Imagine if there is no CRIMINALS, MURDERERS, PSYCHOPATH, MANIACS, or even EGOISTIC people who would only care about themselves and would hurt other people's feeling... the world would become a better place to live in.

If we are talking about NEGATIVE things, somehow the negative thought would make our days gloomy and sad. I read somewhere in a book : If we started our day with a happy thought, suddenly a bad thing happen (for instance a severe traffic congestion, a bad news, etc), it would somehow affect our entire day.

Untung jadi GURU



Terasa nak menulis berkenaan betapa beruntungnya seorang insan yang bergelar GURU. Bukan nak mendabik dada... tetapi ingin membuka mata dan minda insan-insan lain (di luar sana) yang mungkin suka mencemuh guru tanpa usul periksa.



1. Doa daripada anak murid / anak didik / pelajar (panggillah apa saja gelaran)

2. Keberkatan ilmu yang disampaikan akan dibalas dengan pelbagai  anugerah daripada Allah S.W.T :
    kesihatan, kewangan,kebahagian bersama keluarga, anak-anak yang terasuh minda dan akhlaknya dan
    sebagainya.

3. Perasaan gembira ketika bersama murid / anak didik / pelajar akan menyebabkan stress ketika
    berhadapan dengan pihak pengurusan menjadi sedikit berkurangan.

4. Ada guru yang menjadi kesayangan pelajar : menjadi tempat mengadu, bersembang, bertekak dan
    sebagainya - hubungan 2 hala yang sangat erat dan komunikasi yang sangat bagus.

5. Ada juga yang menjadikan guru sebagai 'role model' dan ingin membuktikan kepada ibu bapa mereka
    bahawa kadang kala pilihan mereka boleh menjadi pilihan yang terbaik (ada ibu bapa memaksa anak-
    anak menjadi apa yang mereka inginkan, bukan berdasarkan kemampuan anak-anak).

6. Dapat berkongsi pengalaman, memberi nasihat berguna dan mendengar keluh resah anak murid / anak
    didik / pelajar dan dapat membantu apa yang patut.


Walaupun ada masanya, guru tidak dapat meluangkan masa yang berkualiti bersama keluarganya sendiri, tapi kepuasan tetap ada jika sentiasa memberi yang terbaik kepada keluarga sendiri dan juga kepada anak murid / anak didik / pelajar. InsyaAllah....Allah itu Maha Mengetahui niat seseorang individu itu. Tepuk dada, tanyalah niat anda : Untuk apa anda menjadi seorang guru?

Kepada semua GURU-guru saya yang mengajar saya dari sekolah rendah hingga ke universiti, saya tidak mampu untuk membalas kesemua jasa anda...hanya sekalung penghargaan dan doa yang tidak putus dari saya sebagai anak murid anda di mana saja anda berada...

Iftar 2013

27 Julai 2013... Seramai 5 orang bekas pelajar KMTPh bertamu di rumah emak saya di Sg Besi. Kedatangan Hanif K, Hanif Suhaimi, Hasif, Halim, Izwan dan rakan mereka Ishak disambut dengan Nasi Minyak (air tangan emak tersayang)... walaupun terlewat sedikit.

Majlis iftar secara sederhana tetapi sangat mengembirakan hati saya kerana mereka sudi hadir walaupun secara tidak dirancang sepenuhnya. Usai berbuka, mereka bersolat Maghrib dahulu sebelum menyambung perbualan...



September nanti mereka akan ke pusat pengajian masing-masing untuk menyambung Degree dalam bidang yang dipilih...semoga perjalanan mereka diberkati Allah S.W.T dan moga membuahkan hasil untuk agama, keluarga dan negara...InsyaAllah.

Berkatkah Gaji Kita?


Berkatkah gaji / hasil pendapatan kita? Soalan itu memang biasa ditanya... sama ada oleh majikan kita atau pun kita sendiri. Yang pentingnya, kita tahu ke mana hala tuju hidup kita.

Cuma... ada segelintir manusia memang kurang menilai keberkatan hasil pendapatan mereka, mungkin dek kelalaian atau pun sengaja tidak mahu ambil kisah akan hal ini.

Cuba tanyakan diri anda soalan-soalan ini:

The Lone Ranger

2013
Original series














Having anticipated in the movie... I felt it is necessary to watch The Lone Ranger (I am a fan of Johnny Depp). I was really excited to watch it with my husband and my three kids.

The story itself is a remake from the original one - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lone_Ranger

And basically...both movies are quite similar in term of plot and characters but of course, a change or two were made to make the new one interesting.

In my point of view... the story was quite boring because the action was towards the end - not as I expected it would be. I yawned couple of times and my husband felt sleepy watching the movie. It was until The Lone Ranger started to avenge his brother's death...the action has finally taken its place.

Although I admire Depp's works, but this one wouldn't get my attention at all because the storyline doesn't really show his talent...

Again...this is my own opinion. I'm not a hard core fan, but I've watch most of his works - since 21 Jump Street and honestly this one is not my favourite....:(

Penat Berpuasa?

Hari ini terbaca satu artikel yang sangat menarik untuk dikongsi bersama...

http://www.harian-metro-online.com/kolo-toure-saya-selalu-berpuasa-penuh-setiap-tahun

Kolo Toure: “Saya selalu berpuasa penuh setiap tahun”

Posted on the July 16th, 2013 under Agama,Sukan by admin

Tahun ini Kolo Toure genap berusia 32 tahun. Lebih dari sepuluh tahun dia bermain bola di England. Mula terkenal di Arsenal, dia kemudiannya dibeli oleh Manchester City dengan harga yang tinggi. Tahun ini kontrak Toure bersama City tamat dan kini dia pancing oleh Liverpool.
Toure, berasal Ivory Coast merupakan salah seorang pemain bola sepak Muslim di Liga Perdana. Berbanding dengan liga lain, liga EPL jauh lebih keras dengan corak permainan kick and rush yang memerlukan tahap fizikal yang baik. Bagaimana Toure menyingkapi puasanya di bulan Ramadan semasa persiapan musim depan? Berikut petikan wawancaranya:

Ego vs Rendah Diri


Kehidupan bekerjaya kadang kala membuatkan kita terpaksa melayan pelbagai jenis kerenah manusia - baik yang baik atau pun sebaliknya. Ada masanya jiwa kita akan tertekan apabila berhadapan dengan manusia yang mempunyai EGO yang terlalu tinggi dan tidak suka untuk mengalah.

Emak selalu berpesan : "Kata-kata kita akan diingat orang sampai mati"

Betul cakap emak tu... apa saja perbuatan baik yang kita lakukan akan ditenggelami dengan kata-kata yang mungkin diluahkan secara tidak sengaja dalam keadaan marah atau naik angin. Cuma ada segelintir manusia yang berasa bahawa dirinya sahaja yang betul dalam apa jua keadaan dan orang lain tidak berhak / layak menepis hujah-hujahnya dalam satu-satu keadaan. Manusia sebegini merupakan manusia yang sangat tinggi EGO nya berbanding sifat RENDAH DIRI yang sering diunjurkan dalam Islam.

Kenangan Bulan Puasa

Dulu-dulu... mak masak apa pun sedap. Terus makan dan tak banyak komplen. Waktu bulan puasa lah yang paling dinanti sebab ada saja upah kalau rajin basuh pinggan kat dapur.

Solat tarawih kat surau Kg. Selamat dengan kawan-kawan memang menyeronokkan. Ditambah pula dengan hidangan moreh yang memang ditunggu-tunggu...selesai solat dan menjamu selera, lekas-lekas berjalan pulang. Tak pula terasa takut dengan sesiapa pun ketika itu, maklumlah...kes culik / samun / rogol / bunuh tidak berleluasa ketika itu...

Sekarang ni... sejak dah ada anak 3 (macam ramai sangat kan...), rasa macam tak sempat nak buat macam-macam. Rasanya dah terlalu lama tak menjengah surau / masjid untuk solat tarawih. Rindu pula dengan suasana ketika zaman anak dara dulu-dulu...

Kalau dulu masa mengajar di sekolah, memang ada masa tambahan nak menyediakan juadah berbuka puasa untuk keluarga. Tapi, sejak duduk di Jengka ni... masa balik dah sama macam orang kerja pejabat. Kelam kabut mengambil si kecik dari rumah pengasuh dan bergegas pulang untuk memasak.

Saya memang suka memasak... jarang beli di luar - air tangan ibu kan lagi berkat. :)

TAPI.... anak-anak memang suka mengatur makan ketika di bulan puasa dan sangat MENGUJI KESABARAN saya yang memang agak panas baran ni... Walaupun ada saja masakan saya dikomen dan dibanding dengan masakan nenek mereka... tapi habis juga akhirnya...

Cuma... sangat berbeza sifat anak-anak zaman sekarang berbanding zaman saya seusia mereka - tidak banyak kerenah / cakap. Rezeki depan mata; itulah yang akan dinikmati bersama. Mungkin generasi mereka ni lebih berani sedikit... ada baiknya dan ada juga kelemahannya. Yang penting... bagaimana acuannya, begitulah rupa kuihnya. Harap-harap mereka tak banyak songeh kat sekolah, sudahlah....

Sangat rindu dengan zaman kanak-kanak di Kg. Selamat...terbayang-bayang laluan ke sekolah, ke surau, ke kedai, ke rumah kawan-kawan...huhuhuhu

Tukang KIPAS

Semakin ramai yang mahir dalam bab kipas mengipas ni... bukan apa, senang nak naik pangkat, naik gaji, baik dengan bos dan sebagainya. Tapi...siapa sebenarnya Tukang KIPAS ni?

Boleh dikatakan Tukang Kipas ini wujud sejak dari zaman jahiliah lagi...sampailah sekarang. Cuma yang bezanya zaman sekarang ni lebih dahsyat dan yang menjadi mangsanya adalah mereka yang bekerja dengan jujur dan amanah tanpa perlu memuji-muji bos atau terlebih mengipas bos.

Semua orang tahu bahawa ada bos yang suka dikipas dan hanya ada sebilangan kecil sahaja yang bekerja secara jujur, amanah dan telus. Sejauh mana kelebihan mengipas bos ini, hanya mereka si Tukang Kipas yang maha mengetahuinya.

Pada pendapat saya, seorang pekerja yang baik adalah yang boleh menerima arahan, melaksanakan tugas dan sentiasa peka dengan keadaan sekitarnya (jujur dan amanah itu adalah pasti). Jika kita bekerja bagai nak rak pun, kalau kita tidak mengipas bos lebih-lebih, kita masih lagi beruntung kerana masih dibayar gaji. Kita perlu sentiasa pasang niat "BEKERJA KERANA ALLAH S.W.T.

Kalau niat pun dah terpesong, bayangkanlah macam mana hasil kerja kita nanti - baik di mata dunia tetapi tidak mendapat ganjaran sepenuhnya daripada Allah S.W.T.

Memang betul "Saya yang menurut perintah" tapi perintah siapa sebenarnya yang kita perlu ikuti? Memang betul kita akan dibayar gaji, tapi bernilaikah gaji kita kalau kita asyik mengampu dan mengipas (tak kira lagi yang jenis tikam belakang).

InsyaAllah...saya akan sentiasa pegang prinsip : Tidak perlu mengipas orang lain hanya dek keduniaan semata-mata. Yang saya perlukan adalah nikmat yang Allah S.W.T kurniakan setelah saya ikhlas bekerja untuk membantu suami tercinta dalam mengharungi suka duka kehidupan berumahtangga. Anda bagaimana?

Suami Oh Isteri



Apa yang ISTERI inginkan?

1. Tempat mengadu : tidak perlu teman bertengkar, tetapi teman mendengar. Yang memahami penat lelah
    isteri yang seharian bekerja / menjaga rumah tangga.

2. Kata-kata pujian : tidak perlu hadiah mahal, tetapi cukuplah pujian ikhlas. Tapi kalau nak bagi hadiah
    tu...nyiru kami tadahkan...

3. Teguran membina : bukannya ditengking atau dibidas tanpa hemah. Kami ni insan yang memerlukan
    teguran yang positif untuk menjadi isteri yang lebih baik dari sebelumnya.

4. Kasih sayang : tunjukkanlah dengan perbuatan / kata-kata kerana ia boleh membakar semangat untuk
    melangkah jauh ke hadapan.

5. Bantuan di rumah : di dapur, bersama anak-anak dan melakukan kegiatan riadah bersama-sama.

6. Suami yang menjaga kesihatan demi keluarganya.

Bola Jaring

Hampir tiga tahun tidak melatih pemain bola jaring. Kali terakhir ketika di SMK Seri Garing bersama Kak Zainun dan segala ilmu yang dipelajari daripada beliau masih lagi kekal di ingatan.

Labu oh Labu...

Apabila stress melanda
Apa yang dibuat serba tak kena
Hati ingin meraung saja
Ingin meluahkan perasaan di dada.

Apabila stress melanda
Bukan dek kelemahan yang ada
Bukan dek kesilapan kita
Tetapi dek luncai yang datang dengan labunya.

Luncai oh luncai
Mengapa kau datang oh Luncai
Pergi lah dikau wahai Luncai
Membawa labu-labu mu ke sungai.

Si Luncai tetap bising di situ
Masih lagi dengan tuduhan yang melulu
Mengata orang ini dan itu
Tanpa perasaan segan dan silu.

Dengan usaha dan tekad nan satu
Ku terpaksa jauhi diri dari mu Luncai
Pergilah dikau dengan ego mu itu
Putus sudah hubungan kita wahai si Luncai.

Jangan diduga air yang dalam
Jangan ditanya singa yang tidur
Diam tidak bermakna memendam
Bising tidak bermakna terhibur.

Tabah lah wahai hati
Mengharungi hari yang mendatang
Moga Allah merahmati
Semua hambaNya yang tersayang.

MUET : Good Topics vs Bad Topics

Talking about something during breakfast, lunch or dinner is an ordinary activities among family members, co-workers, and friends. Some people can come up with some interesting topics or issues that can be discussed, debated and even worth to fight for.

But, how are we going to discuss certain issues if we don't have sufficient information / knowledge about what is going on around us? That's why most teachers would say "Read more books...you'll get interesting ideas from books" or "You should search some information on-line via search engines...you'll be amazed with what it can find for you."

Students tend to ignore it and they will just surf the internet for the sake of other interests - Facebook / Twitter / on-line games, so on and so forth. That's why when in a group discussion, they tend to minimize their point of view because of lack of ideas, information and even their prior knowledge is not even suitable for a certain discussion.

When a Man Falls in Love


One of my favourite Korean dramas this year...It has other titles : When a Man Loves / Man in Love but basically I love the story line whereby the main character has to face some challenges in his life in order to live in happiness and to be loved by others.

Although the plot - love triangle is being used (like other dramas) but this time around Seo Mi Do (Shin Se Kyung) was brave enough to make bold decision of who she should choose instead of being pushed by anybody else in the family.

Han Tae Sang (Song Seung Heon), on the other hand who was a former gangster, had to endure with so many incidents in his life - starting when his mother left him (with another man - leaving behind her husband and the wounded Tae Sang) many years ago and the worst part was, she brought Han Tae Min (Kim Seo Kyung) along with her. Desperate to search for his little brother somehow lead him to a dreadful life journey.

Baek Sung Jo (Chae Jun Ahn) was the other woman in Tae Sang's life. She loved Tae Sang so much and she was willing to do what ever it takes just to make sure Tae Sang is happy. This can be seen when she withdrew herself on their wedding day just to save Tae Sang's life...

Jae Hee (Yun Woo Jin) was somehow involved in Tae Sang's life when he seduced Seo Mi Do and the triangle love began to take place. The story is interesting for it has so many elements in it and the way the actors and actress put themselves in the shoes of each character creates a really good mood for me.

Residence Hotel

Having a short course and the place is quite comfortable. But the food still needs to be reviewed by the management. It is not that I didn't like the food, but the choices were too limited especially during dinner. My first day was quite okay, but the second and third day were not really interesting.

The bedroom was nice and cozy, although some of my colleagues complained that their air conditioner didn't work properly. But still, I like the room and the bathroom - really suit me well.

Here are some pictures (I managed to snap before getting busy with my course):

The beds : really comfy

Cerai Susu : Bhgn 2

Setelah hampir 2 minggu saya berjauhan dengan si kecik, dia dihantar pulang oleh atuk dan neneknya. Memang ketara perbezaannya bila dia memandang saya dengan perasaan sayu... dia seakan mengerti yang Mummy memang tak nak menyusukannya lagi...

Tapi... sebaik saja malam menjelang, dia masih meminta lagi. Tangisan mendayu-dayu membuatkan saya sebak dan sedih. Dek kerana keinginan dia yang sangat tinggi, saya mungkin akan menyusukannya kembali, tetapi mujurlah tekad saya sangat kuat.

Kalaulah saya tidak tahan sabar mendengar tangisan adik, mungkin saya masih lagi menyusukannya lagi sedangkan pada hakikatnya susu saya sudah mula berkurangan dan tidak mampu menampung kehendak perut si kecik.

Alhamdulillah, dia sudah mula faham dan jika dia terjaga sebelum subuh, dengan segera saya membancuh susu formula untuk memastikan perutnya kenyang.

Naluri seorang ibu mudah terganggu jika mendengar tangisan dan desakan anak, namun ibu itu harus tahu bahawa ada masanya dia perlu berpegang teguh dengan tekad dan usaha dalam melakukan sesuatu  - demi kebaikan si anak.

Loyar la sangat....buruk pulak tu....


Sangat biasa bagi seorang guru jika terdapat pelajar yang suka buat lawak 'bodo' dan loyar buruk dalam kelas. Saya tak kisah sangat kalau pelajar tu guna ayat yang elok atau bahasa mudahnya : ayat bertapis.

Tapi kalau saya yang sangat 'open-minded' ni boleh sentap dengan seorang pelajar ni, nampak sangat lah lawak nya tak menjadi. Rasa macam nak marah waktu tu juga... tapi dek kerana saya seorang yang 'profesional' la sangat....:)    saya terus ubah topik dan pelajar tu terdiam sejenak dan tidak menyambung ayat seterusnya.

Saya rasa memang kita dah biasa dengan keadaan sebegini, dan pada saya... tidak guna kita mudah melenting ketika berhadapan dengan orang sebegini. Yang penting, kita tahu bagaimana nak membuatkan dia terdiam dan malu sendiri tanpa perlu menggunakan kata-kata kesat atau cacian. Jangan nanti kita ni sama taraf dengan orang sedemikian.

Lawak biar berpada-pada. Hati manusia ni sangat rapuh dan sensitif. Jangan nanti pula jadi pelajar yang menyebabkan hati guru terguris dan ilmu yang disampaikan guru tidak berkat.

Batch 2013/2014

It has been a long week for both students and college staffs during this orientation week. And thanks to all the facilitators who have been there for the new students.

Amazingly, we have almost 400 students from different places including Kedah, Perak, Sabah and Sarawak. Some of them didn't even go to Sekolah Menengah Teknik (Technical School). There are some students who came from Sekolah Berasrama Penuh (SBP - boarding school) and Sekolah Menengah harian biasa (the normal high schools). We also received few Chinese and Indian students. It is a really good change to all of us here.

Luahan Hati Seorang GURU

***INI ADALAH PENDAPAT PERIBADI SAHAJA.

Semalam saya terbaca sebuah komen seseorang yang mempunyai latar belakang sebagai pendidik. Beliau memberi sedikit komen negatif terhadap insan yang bergelar GURU.

Saya rasa sangat tersentuh hati setelah membaca luahan GURU-guru lain di Facebook sebaik saja sebahagian artikel tersebut dimuatnaik oleh individu yang juga terasa hati dengan komen beliau itu.

Ingin saya berkongsi sedikit tugas GURU selain menjadi pendidik : tugas-tugas yang sebenarnya tidak termaktub dalam mana-mana dasar kerajaan tetapi atas dasar EHSAN seorang insan yang bergelar GURU yang sangat DEDIKASI dan juga atas dasar SAYA YANG MENURUT PERINTAH.

1. Menjadi IBU BAPA kedua

    Seperti yang kita tahu...anak-anak yang suci murni diserahkan bulat-bulat selama setengah hari di Sekolah
    Rendah / Menengah dan setengah hari lagi di Sekolah Agama. Tetapi, kadang-kala nak tegur kesalahan
    anak-anak ini amat sukar sekali. Maklumlah, nak jeling pun dah kena surat amaran dari pihak
    TERTINGGI atau pun IBU BAPA mereka sendiri.

    PERSOALANNYA: Salah GURU jugakah kalau anak-anak ini 'kurang' menjadi?
