I Have A Dream

Everybody who was ever serious & passionate about their work will dream dreams of it. I've worked in the teaching profession for 3 years & I find a lot of satisfaction in it. Probably because I work in the interiors & I'm contributing to the welfare of a neglected people. I also see a lot of dividends from the time & effort I put into it. I think to myself... this is how it should be. Teachers should be enabled to focus fully on their school & give their best to their school to see it blossom into something beautiful. My dream is to teach without the need to supplement my income with tuition or business. My dream is the administration of the school care for the school & desire to build it up. My dream is to be released to do even the unorthodox to reach out to the students. My dream is the students understand that we care for them & accept even our punishments.

Valentines In The Jungle

How was your Valentine's Day? This year I had 224 Valentines. All below 18. Some 13. hahaha~~ Before you pick up the phone & call the police about my supposed paedophilia, hear me out! As some of you may know, I am the Chief Warden at my school. For apparent reasons, I have been spending most of my time & resources on the guys. Owing to their tendency towards absent mindedness & destroying every good thing bestowed upon them, I've bought new gardening tools, 'tikar' mats, decorations, beds, cabinets, mattresses, pillows et cetera for them this year. The girls are still using stuff from last year because they've taken such good care of them! Also, the boys here are literally monkeys. They shriek like monkeys when they're excited & even small misunderstanding with their peers would incite a show of force to see who is the rightful alpha male. Little do they know, the Alpha-est male is right here writing this blog! haha~~ It's true.

Donate To... The Longhouses!

I should have shared about this before CNY. Before the spring cleaning & before the sudden surge of generosity. Drive by any recycling centre before CNY & you'll find it packed with stuff! Drive by housing estates & you'll find the bins packed with stuff! Drive by orphanages or donation collection locations & you'll find it packed with stuff! Not everything can be recycled. Our landfills are brimming. Our orphanages are already getting a lot of aid from YBs, NGOs & the public. The Chinese have got so much STUFF that the usual places are overwhelmed! Let me point you in the right direction... Give it to the longhouses! I work in Song, Kapit, where there are countless longhouses lining the river. Every few months, I'd hear that a longhouse was burnt down & some students have lost all their stuff. Since the Chinese have got to much stuff... Why don't you give it to those who have lost all their stuff? Let me rant about my mother.
