Facts that you will read next come from the bottom of my heart. Going through this practicum is almost like a dream come true. Ok I know it just a practicum not me being a real teacher yet. Being a teacher not just a job, some people said it is a safest and easiest job. But for me it is more that that.
 The 1st place I went to in term of education institute is primary school at SK Sri Skudai at JB. My mum take me with her as a standard 1 student, I suppose to be at kindergarten that time coz I was only 5 years old. It was a year when my dad just finished his Master at UK. Basicly, I know nothing about how is school everyday routine that time, I just follow my mum going everywhere. It is hard to believe I still remember those tiny details such as my mum bought a glue wit red tube for me that time, I'm not sure for what but for me that glue is kind a bizarre for me :p
i dunno why I remember this
After few days, my mum send me to Tadika Iman coz I can't cope with standard 1 learning syllabus (mane xnye kat tadika UK banyak main je). Back then, I follow my mum for a few times to her school and sit at teacher's table where all student staring at me and saying " Anak teacher...anak teacher". Even I was small and naive that moment I witness all of my mum action, how she control the class, being firm yet strict at the same time. What I know, all of my mum's students love her very much even she's very strict. BTW, she's an English Teacher. 
she is a TESL graduates, me?? soon

From that moment I said to myself I want to be exactly like my mum. She raise up her kids in her own way and educate her student in a way that makes they loves her very much. During teacher's day, my mum will receive a lot of present. Its not what I wanted the same thing... presents but today I feel very touch when I see how other people children loves my mum very much. I feel jealous at 1st but then I want to have that energy + passion + ability that my mum have. I know it is not easy but I want to be exactly like her. I wrote this not to feel brag or else but  i wanna share how long I've been waiting to be at her place. A place to teach and educate next generation. 

I know there will be challenges awaits me, I hope it wont torn my spirit down. I met all kind of teachers in my life but everytime I found something that I dont like in my teacher I tell myself, one day I will be in that place. I  never had a chance to be the  favorite student of my teacher. My teachers see me just like I am JUST another student but it is fine, I still wanna be a teacher. Back then (even now) teachers around me have their own student of preferences, I always be the one that sit in the shadow. I did not begging for attention at anytime, as long as I play my role as a student, perform well in study and do all the home work.

From time to time I take not the DO and DON'TS in being a teacher. I dont want to be a teacher that I dont like back then. I have to be more creative in attracting my students to love English and be a better human being. Wish me luck :)

ps: sorry for long boring entry ^^,

Practicum vol 1

Our first week of practicum has already over. How ironic within a week we feel we are belonging to the school. I’ve been to the school gate before with Mama & Babah just to know how far the school from the uni.  Kononnye leh la jalan kaki ke if I can find a house to rent since I don’t got a hostel. First week of sem 5, was a time where I don’t stick in one place. Squating umah sewa kakak and meet new friend Ratu, plus kene saman kat Kg. Cina ( 1st ‘awesome’ experience). For a time being I am staying at Bella & Ida’s room (tq you guys coz sudi share)

Le Us & SK Kompleks Gong Badak TRIVIA
  • ·         Mula2 kami ditempatkan di Bilik Guru then di bilik Kaunselling coz guru2 kaunseling dah pencen. (mengimarahkan katanye)
  • ·         Guru pembimbing ku is de sweet and adorable Teacher Azlia.
  • ·         I’ll be teaching Year 1 & 5 English and minor year 3 Music (x penah blaja music selama 20 tahun hidup then nak kena ajar music pulak kan *challenge accepted)
  • ·         Enjoy me’relief’ kelas during first week coz boley test how far is our ability in managing the classroom.
  • ·         Assembly agak lama ye but it’s amuse me to see how students started to feel anxious and do silly things to reflect how bored they are.
  • ·         We have to overnight at the school during our 1st week for Kem Ibadah which involved year 6 students.
  • ·         Ida is the most favourite teacher and the whole world new why but she kind a sick of the reason. (exaggerate statement)
  • ·         Teachers there is very kind especially the senior assistant  who answering all of our question that have been ask since day one ( we ask questions every single day during the 1st week)
  • ·         Actually we’re not supposed to be teaching year 1 and 2 coz they are practicing KSSR which is something that quite new but we will try our best. GANBATTE!!

  The school is just nice, meaning I 'll never get lost to find places :)

Braces off

After 2 vlogs + uncounted ulcers and fevers now I am officially free from braces but not just yet free from retainer.
It's quite a long journey but I enjoy it. Owh braces u've been in my mouth for almost 4 years, at last we finally have a peaceful break. * I weep a lil bit tho :p
I am free from braces but not retainer. I have to wear retainer for 6 month and only can rake it off when I need to brush my teeth + eat and extreme sports..pssssttt~ tell no one I'll take it off when i have to teach 
I am advised to wear it all the time except those times, so that from time to time I will get use to it. Now I am having difficulty in pronouncing words correctly  coz I got this fake hard palate (bhs tamilnye lelangit palsu).
I was not feeling excited at all coz I feel  very reluctant to get rid of those metal. I went to the clinic with my mum she waited in the car coz it was hard to get a parking lot. It's a 2 days appointment. On the 1st day they remove and clean up my teeth properly. Then, they ask me to bite a blue clay like thing to get the proper fitting for my retainer which I will get it on the next day. So, it was one day without braces and retainer. When I get into the car my mum ask me to show my teeth but I cover my mouth with my palm. I smiled at her after she insist to see my new braces free look. She shed into tears straight away, she said I look exactly like when I was small. :D
I wanna share some photos that might be interesting a long this braces experience.
this is the retainer (it have upper & lower side)
