Happy Teacher's Day to all Teachers!

Our day to remind ourselves why we're teachers and to remind ourselves that it's all worth it! The kids are worth it.

Anyhow, just got back from Batam. Went with colleagues and Lydi. Was a great short trip. Left school yesterday. Didn't shop much. Only went to Nagoya for an hour and then we were eating seafood at Golden Prawn. Good food but paying up was a killer. Wat with the big denominations that they're using. Wahahaha...I felt so incompetent to count. In the end we had the lady count for us..Why can't they jsut make our lives easier by using smaller denominations huh??

At night, after reaching the hotel, we chit chat with our room mates. Holiday Inn was not wat I expected. For wat I paid, it was totally worth it. An apartment, two rooms, living room and a kitchen! I was impressed. Went over to the other room where the rest were trying to finish up a bottle of vodka cuz cannot bring back to Sg before 48 hours. (Yes, teachers do have fun and loosen up!) Ended up we were talking about how horrible the kids were during the teacher's day celebrations, making noise while we were taking our Teacher's Pledge. Atrocious behaviour. Sigh...

Woke for breakfast and we went to the spa for the body scrub. That went interestingly well. But I must admit that we were paying more for ambience and convenience. It was near and posh. They had separate huts, somesort villas for every two people to have their massage. Very nice. Too bad didn't bring my cam along. Thot nothing much to take pictures of. If you're the type who need quality massage rather than the frills, don't go there. Heard there's better ones at Batam Centre. But if you don't mind the lesser quality but great ambience. Do check it out.

Managed to play pool..(rusty after sometime) with Lydi..at the lounge and had Indonesian satay. Thot it was the warong type but it was very much similar to Sg style. Indonesian satay apparently is in cubes and is eaten with ketchup, which tastes great. It was great to be indoors since it was raining heavily.

All in all, I totally enjoyed my Teacher's Day. Nobody pamper me, I pamper myself lor..=)

Oh yes, I found this on a website.

"If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher's job. " Donald D. Quinn

For all my teacher friends, Happy Teacher's Day once again. Let us not lose sight of the gift of teaching. We learn, therefore we teach.

Why God created teachers
Author unknown

When God created teachers,He gave us special friends
To help us understand His world
And truly comprehend
The beauty and the wonder
Of everything we see,
And become a better person
With each discovery.

When God created teachers,
He gave us special guides
To show us ways in which to grow
So we can all decide
How to live and how to do
What's right instead of wrong,
To lead us so that we can lead
And learn how to be strong.

Why God created teachers,
In His wisdom and His grace,
Was to help us learn to make our world
A better, wiser place.

Lemme think...
Jack of all trades, Master of None
Family first!
Can't separate me from StarBucks!
