Kids and music

Cheap music

I always dreamt of sending my boys to music class. From what I heard it’s good because it balanced up the function of the brain. Am I right? Art and music class can improve students reasoning, logical and spatial thinking. They help our kids become more creative and able to cooperate in class better. So I think all school should have this music subject at school as it can develop team building skills among students. Parents should not worry because they can always get any musical instruments from woodwind and brasswind coupon with affordable price. But I personally think that school shouldn’t burden parent with buying musical instruments, by right it should be provided and included in the school fees. Well, as a parent of 3 kids, I know it cost a mountain raising up kids nowadays. There are so many things we have to pay and increasing prices of goods make the situation worst. Oh no, am I out of topic? Let’s get back to the root, music is good for kids and sending your kids to music class is consider as a bonus to your kids bright future. All the best!

Raya Celebration

Although students and teachers are busy, but we need to find time to have a gathering lie this.

This is actually Hari Raya celebration for students and also teachers. We had similar gathering 2 years ago. Now I’m able to celebrate it again but with different faces. No matter what, they are always cheerful and full of joy.

I was actually IMPRESS  with their cooperation. I didn’t actually expect that they brought so many food to be shared with. We ate until our stomachs were full and we even invited other students from other classes to join us. I’m glad that they had so much fun that day.

This kind of celebration is good to tighten our relationship and to teach them the value of teamwork among  Malay, Indian and Chines…..WE ARE MALAYSIAN.

Getting ready for tomorrow

There will be an Open Day at school tomorrow morning until afternoon. I’m doing a little preparation for tomorrow. Report books and mark sheet are ready at school. The only thing I have to do now is queuing numbers.

Usually, I just put all the numbers in a small box. Unfortunately, I’ve lost the box. I voiced out to Mr Hubby and he came out with something creative. He just used things that he saw around him, a chopstick, paper cups and blue tag. This is the outcome….

Not at all bad right? Thanks dear 🙂

It’s me here again…

I rarely update my blog 🙁 Oh… I really wish that I could do it EVERYDAY! But other commitment in life makes this almost impossible. Don’t get me wrong. I will NOT easily surrender, I will make this POSSIBLE in the near future.

Lately I’m busy mostly doing school work. There’s a project which I’m in the middle of doing it. Almost done and still going on until now.

This is how UGLY my class looks like before transformation 🙁

But after several weeks, I started buying things to BRIGHTEN UP the environment and most importantly give SPIRIT to the people in it 🙂

The result is superb!!!

Put your vision to reality

vision

In today’s busy world, it’s easy to get stuck in your thoughts. Sometimes you aren’t sure about what steps to take next. You have plans, but are scared to make them happen. It’s important to put your vision to reality.

To put your vision to reality means to stop thinking and start doing! If you want to be a professional chef, but your family thinks you should be a doctor, what do you do? Study to be a doctor, or put your vision to reality and become a chef?

If you are into guitar but your parents insist that you should learn piano, what should you do? Do you follow your parents’ dream or do you put your vision to reality by learning guitar and buy parts of guitar on your own?

Well, this is your life, my life and NOT theirs. So just stick to your dream!

Am I strong enough?

I’m feeling terribly SAD, LONELY and UNWANTED. How to let go of these feelings? I’ve tried to cry but there’s no tears. Although I’m sleepy but I can’t sleep!  So what else should I do?

My life will be splendid if I have someone who understands me, someone who will always be with me and someone who can lead me.

I can’t do all this alone. I’m tired of doing this alone and at the end I still be the bad cop 🙁

Bright

Some people only like to listen to happy music. But for others, there is just something satisfying about listening to music that’s a little bit sad. In a way, sad music can even make you feel good. It can make you feel less alone, or it can be an outlet for your feelings.

Right now I’m soooooo addicted with “Bright’’ by Echosmith. I’m listening to this over and over again. Let’s join me 🙂

BRIGHT

I think the universe is on my side
Heaven and Earth have finally aligned
Days are good and that’s the way it should be

You sprinkle star dust on my pillow case
It’s like a moonbeam brushed across my face
Nights are good and that’s the way it should be

You make me sing oh, la, la, La
You make a girl go oh oh
I’m in love, love

Did you see that shooting star tonight?
Were you dazzled by the same constellation?
Did you and Jupiter conspire to get me?
I think you and the Moon and Neptune got it right
‘Cause now I’m shining bright, so bright
Bright, so bright

And I see colors in a different way
You make what doesn’t matter fade to grey
Life is good and that’s the way it should be

You make me sing oh, la, la, la
You make a girl go oh oh
I’m in love, love

Did you see that shooting star tonight?
Were you dazzled by the same constellation?
Did you and Jupiter conspire to get me?
I think you and the Moon and Neptune got it right
‘Cause now I’m shining bright (oh) so bright
And I get lost (oh) in your eyes

Did you see that shooting star tonight?
Were you dazzled by the same constellation?
Did you and Jupiter conspire to get me?
I think you and the Moon and Neptune got it right
I think you and the Moon and Neptune got it right
I think you and the Moon and Neptune got it right
‘Cause now I’m shining bright, so bright
Bright, so bright
Bright, so bright
And I get lost in your eyes tonight

TABLE SKIRTS

20150518_093257

Please describe the picture J. Do not look at the sleepy heads but look at the decoration. This is actually my classroom. It looks so dull and boring with fade curtain, information less soft board and naked table!

 I’m actually planning to do something with this class. Perhaps I could use table skirt as part of the decoration!

Here it goes. A boring table can take on a totally new and wonderful personality with a table skirt that goes to the wall. Of course a skirted table can go into the teacher’s table as well but with different design and color tone just to differentiate between student’s and teacher’s table.

I don’t think table skirt is expensive because at table skirts cheap, I can get table skirt that completely covers the table, versatile and in various design at reasonable price! You can try it yourself.

Another advantage of table skirt is, well….we all knows about the condition of table in most school. With table skirt, it doesn’t matter anymore except that it must stand straight and securely on all legs so that it doesn’t tip.

So now, let’s get the right measurement for the tables. Hopefully this will boost up the interest of those sleepy heads in learning especially in their own classroom.

Stick Up

Nelson Mandela was a civil rights leader famous for helping people in South Africa. He fought against a system where non-whites did not have the same rights as whites. He was a voice for people who could not speak for themselves. He stuck up for the people of his country.

When you stick up for someone, you are helping that person in a way that they cannot do for themselves. When someone is not nice to you, you stick up for yourself, right? So, if a big kid at your school is being mean to a smaller kid, you should stick up for the smaller kid. Or, if you believe that animals are being treated badly around you, you could stick up for animal rights. It’s always a good thing to stick up for those who cannot do it for themselves.

Here in my country, who can actually stick up for us from paying tax to the goverment? We desperately need a superhero because ‘they’ won’t listen to our voice! Be with us and protect us from those greedy men, stick up for us…please….!!!

Coffee anyone?

coffee

First thing in the morning, a smell starts spreading through the house. It’s strong, yet comforting. And the thought of warm coffee is enough to make even the most sluggish people get out of bed.

For many people, coffee is a daily ritual. Whether or not they admit that they are addicts, the caffeine is definitely the reason coffee gives them energy and helps them start the day. It’s a habit that many coffee shops have used to make money. They will brew coffee before it’s light outside, so that everyone on their way to work has a place to stop for their morning pick me up.

Too much coffee can have a negative effect, though. Extra caffeine can make people hyper. Some people start to shake. And, of course, buying coffee all the time can be expensive, too. Still, I’m going to love it!
