Silhouette

Image
During my school experience in Clyde Quay School, i had the privilage of observing a peotry writing lesson.

The exercise: Finish a peom starting with "as the moon wakes".

I decided to write one too...
tell me wad u think!
=)

--------------------------------------------

As the moon wakes, all is silhouette
The lady is red appears in my head
I cant see her face but know does my heart
her beauty and grace is beyond disgrace

Oh do I long for beauty and grace
Oh how I desire to adore her face
Yet glimpses i get as short as a breath
of beauty and grace beyond disgrace

Her shiny hair flows like the oceans
Her glowing skin excites like a flame
You beckon for me yet meet we cannot
For all is silhouette, the girl of my dreams...

Released At Last!

4.30pm, Monday, 6th of November, was the time of great release...
The red sea of Trimester 2 was parted and the slaves were taken from slavery & captivity in the Egypt of chasing assignment deadlines & stupying for exams to freedom in the promise land of the well deserved holidays!

Before my release, I had...

Football: Malaysia vs Indonesia Friendly

Malaysia played Indonesia 3pm today at Rotterdam St Stadium, Wellington, New Zealand.

The Malaysian team in their cool bright orange jersy looked a little nervous playing away on Indonesian home ground. Malaysia trashed Indonesia last year on Malaysian home ground, the Boyd Wilson Stadium, but with a new line-up on both sides predicting the result is quite difficult.

In the first half, both teams had similar chances on goal & posession of the ball... and quite fairly there were no goals. The Malaysian team made a lot of mistakes as their unfamiliarity with the pitch stood out. Passess were too short, touches unclean & players hesitating... The Indonesians were naturally familiar with the grounds & were very active running around making tackles & intercepting passess. The first half ended with both teams needing rest from a half hour long contest.

The second half was a very different matter. The Indonesians seem to have lost their steam. Their players were not playing as …

B.Ed. TESOL Halloween & Farewell Party

Image
Just a few hours ago the Victoria University of Wellington B.Ed. TESOL Cohort 2 completed a successful Halloween & Farewell Party at Tulsi Restaurant, Cuba Mall.

The purpose of the party was mainly to appreciate the Cohort 1 as well as celebrate their 2 years in Wellington with a great big bang!
=)

The party was a great success partly because me, "RaaaaTak" the Mummy, was an amazing Master of Ceremony or Host of the party.
=)
We started the night off with speeches from Vilo, Intan & Jonathan Newton. (In that order.)

Then, moved on to performances from Aimi, Fauzi & Afzan as well as Shiela & Mass while enjoying our entrees.

Then, we had our buffet dinner.

After dinner, each member of the Cohort 2 will give an assigned member of Cohort 1 a gift. Therefore, in the end, each of Cohort 1 gets a gift.
We also took the moment to acknowledge Kak Intan, Jai & Tasha for their contribution to the Cohort 2.

We began the end with a group photo session...
