The recent issue on a primary Pendidikan Moral paper that received attention because it required students to match names to places of worship is really... a big sigh. The system is already not great to begin with, and to see such lack of preparation and sensitivity in preparing an exam paper is really an embarrassment to the teaching profession. It's as though the exam paper was haphazardly designed. Who would tailor such questions really? Issues like this will make the public generalize that government teachers are not fit to be teachers, making the stigma grow instead of eradicating it. All it takes is one rotten apple to light a spark that causes a whole forest to be in flames, in an instant. Gosh.

This is a reminder to me, to take pride in my profession and not to contribute to the (many) bad apples out there. Grr thinking about this makes me angry. 

Can someone just give the teacher the rightful disciplinary action? Because if no action is taken, there will be no lesson to learn, and the conundrum remains.

When i have random spurts of thought I will blog. Like now:

it's difficult to be hardworking cuz it requires so many things we don't want to do: diligence, patience, endurance, grit. Well, the only person between yourself and hardwork is YOU. 

So get moving. Wake up TM

Had one of the busiest weeks this week; lack of sleep, non-stop action, MC-ing, corresponding with VIPs etc. Made me feel exhausted, spent, tired and discouraged I could not focus on my research.

After a tiring two-day run, I dreaded going for the meet with my supervisors because i wana go for the meeting feeling excited, fresh and rejuvenated, not tired and discouraged. But the things he had to say greatly encouraged me, reminding me to persevere on and to work hard.

I hope i keep going and staying afloat!
