kotok kalang

i have been without any idea on what to write these few days.. am devastatingly sad over Palestine.. it bothers me but i can only pray and boycott anything that has to do with the Israel. including my plan to watch ''Bedtime Stories" which stars Adam Sandler... i use to love him so much.. i loved all his movies.. not all.. i did miss a few.. but i did have a lot of fun watching mr deeds, anger management, the longest yard, spanglish, big daddy, 50 first date.. so when MR MZMRIZA and I saw the big add at TGV, we thought we wouldn't want to miss it.. until last nite a gud old fren, zaharah hasanah@nina forward me a message via YM saying that some of profit collected thru ''Bedtime Stories" will be channelled for the israel to win over Gaza.. i dont know how far is the truth.. but thinking of the misery that the Palestinians is struggling thru.. and even if its not true.. i should cancel my plan.. so i did.. and i am proud of itsenyum..

ok... back to my teaching world... i have picked my monitor and his assistant..

this is muhammad ridzuan and his assistant fatin aqilah

i did a poll and let them vote.. i thought it was better for them to choose their own leader.. someone that they can work with and i believe they chose the rite person because both of them can deliver given task very well.. congratulations dear!!!!

i have some moments that happened in class that i want to share with...

scene 1 ( period: pendidikan muzik year 3)
intro: i taught them the song - jong jong inai... u all know the songs rite.. didnt purposely pick that song but it was in the syllabus.. so i gave them the lyrics and taught how to sing it... and joget too... yessss... joooooget! and of course i had to demonstrate the joget to them first!!... so i managed to have a few who could really joget... some... mmmmm... budak darjah 3 lah.. malu2... as to get the rest of the class to joget together so i joget along while cheering them up to do so... and at the end of the period i summed up by saying while panting of course...

me: bagus ye.. hari ini kita telah belajar menyanyi sambil berjoget... bagi tepukan untuk semua..

year 3: tepuktangantepuktangantepuktangantepuktangantepuktangan

me: selain daripada kita belajar muzik secara tidak langsung kita juga telah melakukan senaman...

me lagi: senaman amat bagus bukan.. lagipun kita baru lepas rehat.. makan hotdog, nugget, nasi lemak dan sebagainye.. kenapa kita makan? untuk mendapat...

year 3: tenaga..

me: bagus.. kalau tenaga tidak digunakan ia akan bertukar menjadi lemak.. dan akhirnya kita akan menjadi gemuk...

year 3 (sambil bersahut- sahutan): betul nanti pakai baju tak muat.. selalu penat.. yada yada yada.. (mcm2 la feedback diorang)

me : tapi.. kalau gemuk macam cikgu takpelah.. sikit aje...

and suddenly.. the class became silentblur... yours truly tiba2 rasa macam malu pon ada... maybe inside their head... "perasannye cikgu nih... besar mcm nih kata gemuk sikit ke?"... ohhhsigh.. i should register myself at aerobic class petang ni jugak..

me: ok kelas... jumpa lagi pada kelas seterusnya.. assalammualaikum... (with a very red and hot facemalu)


scene 2 ( period: mathematics year 5)
intro- i taught them multiplication today.. an hour period.. so after giving examples, discussing and answering it one by one, i gave them a list of question to be answer on their own for exercises.. after 10 minutes passed by i moved around the class to check how they were doing.. and there was this boy, fitri who had only started at the first question meanwhile the others have been leading him with 3 or 4 questions.. and he wasnt usually like this because he was among those who always manage to submit homework on time.. so aku pun...

me: what is wrong with u... baru soalan pertama... org lain dah nak siap dah...

fitri: packing ------- ----lang... ( loghat terengganu)

me: packing what?.. belalang.. haaa... lang.. apa lang?

fitri was not saying a word and suddenly other pupils sitting next to him said : kotok kalang...

me: haaaaa? packing kotok kalang?

fitri : pencil box.. teacher.

yours truly was about to laugh but had it control very well.. takkan la plak aku nak ketawa depan anak murid kugelakguling.. so i was like " siapkan cepat ok.. dont waste any time"...

apparently here the pencil case/box is called "kotak kalam".. kalam means pencil.. an arabic word which is in original, qalamun... so go figure why kotok kalang... sengihnampakgigi
