Happy Teachers’ Day

Posted by on May 16, 2015 in Personal

Today, Malaysia celebrates Teachers’ Day. Some schools have already started celebrations yesterday, and events are also planned for next week. Teaching is a vocation. After so many years in the profession, I have seen people come in because of the salary, the perks, or the hours. Most of them leave the profession after a few years, because they find that they have misunderstood the profession. The teachers I count as successful are those who make a good lasting impression on the children. It is good to teach students according to a syllabus. It is good to be able to cover every single topic you set out to teach. It is really nice when students can repeat facts you have divulged in class, often word for word. But my biggest satisfaction comes when my students learn to be responsible, punctual and reliable people the industry could depend on. It is nice when students to acknowledge us, often with gifts, cards, apples and flowers. But a perfect teacher’s day gift…? I’m happy with a piece of well done homework, submitted on time 🙂 To all my friends who are teachers, and especially for all those who have ever taught me before,...

1 Utama’s “Secret” Garden

Posted by on Apr 19, 2015 in Travel

With the introduction of GST in Malaysia, most people are desperately looking for a place to “hang out” free of charge. 1 Utama’s Secret Garden meets this demand admirably. A plaque at the entrance informed me that the garden was developed in secret for five years before it was opened for public viewing on 25th May 2009. It occupied 30,000 square feet and is home to 600 species of carefully nurtured, rare and tropical plants. Not being a plant expert, I did not bother to count them. The Secret Garden is open on weekends and public holidays for free, from 10am to 10pm. So how do you get up there? Take the elevator opposite HSBC Bank and press the button for the floor marked UR....
