OMG, never dream of becoming one of em...Yeah, that's me and my part time job. An english teacher. But actually mine is a little bit different, usually those with TesL certificate holder will eventually end up teaching kids, teenagers or under/post graduate..But me, i'm teaching adult with average age of 30-40 years old..Mostly married women..
Well, Its a suprise to see these people to learn english at their age but as the saying goes, it's never too late to learn...Besides, I think they're quite interesting...talkative and really took part in the class..
Eventhough at the very beginning it's kind of hard..well you know..it's not that easy to teach adult...you need to get their attention and respect first. Then they will listen to you..Well, I think I've made it in the end..huuu...This part time job is until the end of the year. Every weekend (Sunday). Last time I have only 2 classes (2 hours each) but now I another 2 classes...Which makes me kind of busy every Sunday and will be teaching from 9am-6pm..(straight 8 hours)..
How much they pay me??per hour??It's a secret...I love this job because it's really meaningful.All I hope is that, by the end of the day, they'll get something from the class and use it to help their children in the process of learning. As my friend said, I have a huge responsibility and I must not feel less purposeful teaching them because this is what we called a community service...wow,so touching arrrr...hehe..... Emm, don't worry, I give 'em my very best...

Just come back from Thailand few days ago. Went there for a week. Well actually I went to Prince Of Songkla University Thailand for the biodiesel expedition organized by UTM. It's a very long journey and for sure i'm damned exhausted.
Well, lot's of input gained from the trip. Malaysian and Thai's media also involve directly and indirectly in taking coverage. Then for some relaxation, we went to an island..I forgot its name but for sure it was amazing...hehehe...kind of mini Phuket...hahaha...
By the way, this program is actually one of the action for the government's call in using biodiesel as the alternative fuel in replacing diesel that we are currently using. 7 vehicles convoy altogether consisted of UMP & UTM students. Start from UTM Skudai and convoy to Hatyai Thailand and lastly to Surat Thani Thailand. Almost thousands of kilometers....exhausted..huuu..
