Certificate of Achievement

Marieann showed me her certificate of achievement which she obtained because she participated in the Student Leadership (Reach) Camp, 30 May - 1 June 2016. I couldn't be more proud of Marieann! 
Not because of her certificate but because of what she has achieved for herself. I am really glad for my decision to put her in St Margaret's Secondary School. Marieann is really thriving in SMSS.
Although she is academically less inclined, she is making up for it in other areas, e.g. her leadership skills which was never noticed when she was in primary school because she is the quiet one. I would rather she has a good character, be a good person and has skills which will serve her well throughout her life than to have good results but with a lousy character. 
Marieann, I am really proud of you and your achievement!

Feathered Neighbour

Managed to catch this feathered neighbour. :) Marieann saw it first, she has an eye for nature. We haven't seen it for a while. This hornbill is a young one.

Friendly Neighbour

I saw my neighbour as I was going to work. It recognises me now and came to the door but I couldn't stop to be friendly or I would be late for work. :(
That sad look :(

My 1st MLS

Today, I gave the first lecture of my Management and Leadership in Schools programme elective, Student-Involved Assessment. This is the first time that I am teaching a MLS elective. The students are key personnels from schools. They are really funny and we had lots of fun discussing and sharing experiences and views. I learnt plenty from them too! Looking forward to my next 5 sessions with them. :)

The Still Life Test

I hope I can visit one of these countries in the future - Greece and Turkey. 

You Are Curious
You see the world as full of possibilities, and you're sometimes overwhelmed by all the opportunities out there.
You want to learn and understand as much as possible. You are an armchair anthropologist.

You love to travel, and when you aren't able to get away, you are traveling in spirit...sampling new foods and art.
An adventurer like you would be happiest visiting Greece, Argentina, or Turkey.

My Seedlings

My tiny (like full stops) seeds finally sprouted after 12 days! It is my "homework" from my work retreat. Although only two seedlings grew, I still feel a great sense of achievement. Why? Because I don't have the green thumb, unlike my mother and my brother. I hope more will grow. :)

Sighted! Wild Boar!

I saw a rare sighting of a wild boar as I was leaving my workplace yesterday! :O I didn't dare to go too close because the boar was about the size of a dog. I only zoomed in from the roadside. I don't think I can outrun the boar should it decide it doesn't like my face haha.

For first time, I am back at STGCC for a second day. My mother and my daughter saw what I bought yesterday and wanted me to get for them - t-shirts and toys.

I doubt I can remember much by tomorrow haha.
