Reflection on Bible - hear


These few days I have been thinking of how I have so longed to be embraced in HIS presence. How I miss worshipping HIM in Praise and Worship and even quiet time in Adoration. All things I ever had last year I slackened. I have always been asked the question on what Faith is. At this point my faith is one that comes from what is heard from what is heard comes through the word of Christ and those who hears. What keeps me going is this love that Christ has so greatly showered on me, teaching me to forgive, love and remove all hatred that blocks out my relationship with HIM and His people.

Dear God

Today’s scripture your word hit me as I read, “For one believes with the heart and so is justified and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved … No one who believes in Him will be put to shame.” U know these few months I have been put down so many times just trying to stand by the believe that you are there. So many things you have done for me I saw it thru and thru. But why is it that others don’t feel you? Why are these people unable to believe with their hearts? It hurts and put me down when I see people who doubt you, your work at hand and even use the logic to try refuse your existence. I felt really low, I need your grace and to be back in your embrace and to be totally immerse in your love.

But than again you made me reflect on these words too:
“How can they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach? And how can people preach unless they are sent?
It made me think a lot.
Is my time to evangelize been up? Is it time for me to get back to the books and recharge again?
Am I doing a crappy job at reaching out to people? How can I do it better?
As for those who do not believe in HIM, what should I do? Leave them alone and surrender them to U? After repeated hurts, pain and tears, why is it that some people still do not believe in you? How can I help them further to experience your amazing love?

Before I close of this post, I would like to thank you Lord for all you have done in my life. Your love is so greatly felt when I am with my family who supports me all these years and take great care of me, protecting me from harm. Lord you’re your mercy to those who hurt you and deny you. Lord if you mark our transgration, who would stand? Thanks by your grace we are cleanse by the blood of Christ. 

Love
Your Daughter

Movie together


Went out with my 2 little niece and nephew to watch a show that the world would think is boring - Twilight Breaking Dawn. But what i enjoyed most wasn't just the show but their mere presence that i was grateful for. They would not condemn, judge or critique the show, but would seek to know reason behind certain scenes and words used. Their curiosity spurs me to want to find out more about the show for them to understand. They are such a joy to be with and today, they have taught me a very important lesson in life. Many people have said this but I guess to hear it from a young child, the effect, the words n the feeling is totally different. 
"My life what, I want to do what I want, it is my legs, i want to walk where , I go where!" 
Not in the perfect English of coz, but the meaning behind it woke me up. 
Thank you m dears. I love you all so much.

Reflection of Bible - be grateful

So often we take the work of Gods hand for granted and live each day forgetting to thank him for all he has done for us

"Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof;
only say the word and my servant will be healed. "

As we go about this week Let us not forget to that it is gods hand at work and seek his mercy in trials we might need to overcome

My life

Preparing for Confirmation Camp both spiritually and physically and mentally at the same time. I am finding it very had to do all this. The spirit is willing but the flash is week. Finding time to spend with him is kinda a difficulty in my life now. I thought that holidays would be great time for me to spend with him but i guess i was wrong. I am now caught up in more things and finding it difficult to pull myself away from the things i am doing. I am getting into trouble, into pain and even into unnecessary hurt in my life. I would say my life is a total screw up a total disaster and a mess. I don't know if i am spiritually ready, emotionally stable or even mentally prepared for this camp. All i can rely on is a Faith that I know still exist in me.

Music theme songs - Pirates of Caribbean

My life - Cutting my hair

Many months ago someone asked me to leave my hair long and wanted to see the long hair i used to have. I did and soon after I chopped my fringe too because of someone's comment. We have always followed the wants of others but how often do we get appreciated ? How often are our efforts recognize in those who request things of us. Today I did up my hair but many people whom i met said "why you rebond? your natural hair nice what! Wy waste your money? " no one in my circle of friends actually said I look good not even those that are closest to me. It kinda hurts when these little efforts we put in to please people do not get recognize yet gunned down. Maybe i should stop doing things for people and pleasing them coz it gets backfired but start living for myself.

Reflection of bible - giving everything

Music , games , fashion, computer , friendships , relationship etc. all these things revolves around our lives. It makes us who we are. If one day someone requires of us to give us all these things and trade it for something u might not be able to see, feel or touch but is able to give u the happiness u require would u? How many of us nowadays find it difficult to Give up everything? I for one would also find it very difficult.

It is always so easy for us to say, take up our crosses and follow him and all these words so pleasing to the ear but how often do we realize that these words are so difficult to be fulfilled.

Looking back at today's reading on the women who give all she had (2 small coins ) her whole entire livelihood as an offering to God.

Reflecting back also on my career as an educator, have I really been giving my all (2 small coins) ? I may not be called to the missionary vocation but the vocation as an educator is one of love commitment and passion. My greatest teacher is not one of this life but the one who has taught me a life lesson and who has given his life up for us so that we may learn from him and be like him - sacrifice himself for the love of others.

Getting to know him with each day that passes me by I realize that I could not have done so much without him. Coz I would have been dreading to teaching, hating my students for all they say or even teaching the bare minimum and leaving for home thereafter. But no this vocation he has prepared for me entails more than just the bare minimum but it requires my 2coins worth and all of me to be immerse in the yearning to be the light to these young minds and mould them into Christ like children of GoD!!

When Jesus looked up he saw some wealthy people
putting their offerings into the treasury
and he noticed a poor widow putting in two small coins.
He said, "I tell you truly,
this poor widow put in more than all the rest;
for those others have all made offerings from their surplus wealth,
but she, from her poverty, has offered her whole livelihood."

Staff Dinner 2011

It is gonna be my last final goodbye to everyone of my lovely colleagues here in Siglap. Being a girl who lives with people around me ... leaving this bunch of funky cute colleagues is something i am still finding it hard.



Mr William 
My shifu in drawing, from the 1st day you entered into Siglap and sat at the same table as me when we had staff meeting at Changi. Good words never fail to come out from you when you comment on other people’s drawing and things others do. No matter how bad your day may be, you would not condemn it but look at it from the brighter side. Your dedication to the teaching of your students inspires me a lot more to be like you. Despite your injured leg, you have made the effort to come back to teach these little ones.


Mr Mazlan
Your love for art really amazes me and your demand for discipline and respect from our students is one I am still wanting to learn from. It may not be very long since you came but throughout this time, I enjoyed working with you in small little ways e.g. chinese new year. Your dedication to the teaching of your students inspires me a lot more to be like you. Despite your injured leg, you have made the effort to come back to teach these little ones.


Mr Tharmen
Thank you for your constant support and I really enjoy having you as my RO. Looking back on your small gesture of thanks and small notes of encouragements really touched my heart deeply. It was a pleasure to learn the ropes from you when I helped out in CLV this year. Watching your passion for Dance also inspired me to dance and I was also so happy to be part of RHD dance for S4s n 5s

My 2 Co-forms & me 

Aunty Khiu
This year last 1 ½ years with 4T1 has been a year of fun filled time and as much as I enjoyed their presence I too thank you for your guidance and teaching. Looking back on your small gesture of thanks and small notes of encouragements really touched my heart deeply. Your frequent acknowledgement to my little things I do for the class really made me feel welcome.

RuiXiang
Thank you for guiding me while working tgt with you as a co-form teacher. I have always been very amazed as how you worked your way from a brother to a daddy status in 4T1 … But well don work too hard and stress your body out, do take time to chillax and have your darts time… When I get the chance hope to see you reach national competitions and even starting a Darts CCA in Siglap clinching Champion positions. But time has seriously flow so fast that I can hardly even remember how we met , but I vaguely remembering you coming up to com lab and seeking help from Crey and I in 2007.



Miss Wee 
You have been a real role model for me and I really enjoy the time and random conversations I have with you. Though small in size you have a really dynamic and thurderous voice. You have been a model teacher who would command respect from any student or even staff.  size doesn’t matter at all. Healthy Lifestyle – keeping fit every day is also something in your recipe of life and I would always bear that in mind as a take away point of mine. Thank you for always looking out for me and filling me in with insightful news reports when we sit at the staff lounge to have our breakfast.


Adeline:
Hey sexy bomb ! Know you are also saying goodbye too! No matter you will be, just know that you will always be remembered back here in Siglap. Thank you so much for your help and support these past few years especially when I need to hijack your Drama mama papa. I enjoy the random lunch with you and I honestly got to know you better. I love how you can just have your single life so much but it can never be a thing I would want. I would like to wish you all the best in whatever you intend to do. Stay happy and sexy always!


Mrs Menon
It has been a great 6 months working with you for 2A3 on their Geog classes. Thank you for allowing me the space to grow and learn and your constructive suggestions to help me improve. Thank you so much for helping me along the way in a sheltered environment. At times it can be challenging working with these kids but looking at them, allows me to realize that they have a whole bright future ahead of them and it spurs me on to teach them. Thank you for mentoring me for these 6 months and I have indeed learnt a lot from your wealth of experience. It was really sweet to hear that I would be missed by u all. But don’t forget to drop an sms or call to me, if you ever need my help, I’ll be there.

Mrs Rajan
I have always enjoyed working with you and U have tons of positive comments for me. I am sorry if I may not be able to produce the best result at times, but thank you for being patient w me. You have been an inspiration for me to be a teacher. I would truly miss working with you and hearing all your interesting stories with student. I really hope the best for you and your family. Good luck in everything you do.

Mdm Aishah

Thank you so much for your random times when you would spare 5 mins just to advice me and being a nice “mummy” to me I am forever grateful to you for all you have done for me. You have taught me to push on and the tough are the on who will survive over these kids. You taught me that we educators are open to these kids coz we care but we will also be hurt, but we get hurt coz we care. I want to be like you and I will learn how to love these kids like you too. Thank you for all these and I hate to have to say goodbye to you. But I know that I will learn a lot more from outside.



Ves 
You have always seem to me as a teacher I aspire and hope to be… coz of your creative way you reach out to this students and the sincerity towards them. Your little birthday cards you did for them and the time you often take to bond with them after and before curriculum spurs me more to know the word “commitment” to the student.

Ralph:
Heyo! Thanks for teaching me how to bake muffins. If there is nothing to eat at home I’ll bake them and I am sure I would bring that skill into the new school and bake for my kids. I love the times when we get to random chat at the staff lounge. Thank you so much for the fun times too. I wish you all the best as you continue inspiring these kids to be future chef.

Henry
Thank you for letting me be a part of your cyber wellness committee. You have taught me many things and I do miss those times watching you teach 2E3 and thank you so much for your often small notes of encouragement and acknowledgment as I know that my effort is not “wasted.” When I am not around please take care of yourself and don’t fall sick too often. And when you are stress up, watch some videos to de-stress. Unfortunately our timings have always been clashing and time has never been on our side to watch a movie together but I do hope you are able to call me in future for movie.

Glenda
Thank you darling girl for all your corny yet funny jokes... you have always been a source of my laughter when I am down and I am happy to be able to share your worries and saddest moments with you. Though you have not join this Siglap Family for long but I do hope you will be able to find a home in this warmth environment. Any problems I am just an SMS away ok darling? But don’t let the little things in life get you down and rob you off the pretty smile on your face.

Esther
My darling Lunch partner, I am so going to miss you so much , you know it mean so much to have you eat w me every day (except when our timing clash). You would also be the first to know my days happening and things I want to complain about. Thank you for teaching me to keep healthy and eating fruits. Though time maybe short of our friendship but don forget me when you get married ok? And when you go out and you need a kaki to shop or go overseas? And of coz the steamboat sessions I would be looking forward tgt.


 

Wendy Wong
Jie, I guess the first person I would run to if I need someone for advice is you... and even for clubbing, I wish you and Danny all the best and yes I would sure be there on your wedding day and I wan to be your jie mei ok!!! Can “zen” your future husband. But ever since tat day at boiler I have seen another side of you. Though fierce and commanding you may be , there is this loving side of you. You may look and seem fierce to students but you care a lot for them, similarly in staff room. You may be loud, but when whoever needs a listening ear, you will be there. And I will take your advice into account, “don’t be too nice to students”. Not coz you don’t love them but coz you need to be careful of what might happen.

Frankie
funny how time flies and it was just 1 ½ years ago we were classmates in the same class in NIE and now I would need to bid farewell to you. I would always remember the times we had at NIE the trips you fetch me back to hougang, in Siglap and how we first met - I had to talk to you coz of your hair. Life and gonna so be different now that I am going to NIE and it certainly is gonna be different without u in my new school. I would certainly miss you and your horny jokes, crappy moments and cheeky laughter.


June
Whao crazy sassy girl, you have always been a sassy hot teacher and I enjoy your company so much. I even enjoy flying overseas with you. When I not around please take care of yourself don fall sick so often. And I wish you and “Bobby” all the best in whatever you do. Must call me when u all get married ok? I am seriously gonna miss our “district” people a lot esp. the fun times out of school that we have. I love being an AED in your class but I love the bunch of 1A3 kids. You have taught me tough love and I am sure I would be bringing it across to my new school and my new chapter in life. I am gonna miss you BIG BIG TIME!


Yi Qing: hey fellow crazy clubber girl, you know I have never started clubbing and enjoy it so much until I met you and the times we share together at PH and Boiler. Thank you so much for your care towards me and for sharing my joys and sorrows over the past year. The trip to Thailand has been a worth it one coz I found someone who has a same shopping style as me and also someone who is fun to be with too. You have always made times in Siglap easier to pass. Working tgt with you for 2A3 has also been a common topic during our bored times in school

Roslind: Fellow Hello Kitty sister, I really treasured those times u went w me to Thailand I really got to know you so much more better. But sadly the time has come for me to say goodbye ... But I will always remember all the times when I needed ya guidance and advice n u were there for me. I have always reapected ya ideas and principles and how u handle kids sooo Stay rooted to ya principles coz they will bring u really far.


Lydia:
Girl ya patience and tolerance is really worth my admiration. I guess I am always grateful that I know u and I wish u all the best in ya studies. Must come back w good results k dearie. Whenever u feel like giving up on things in life just remember that u are never alone coz HE is there carrying you on his eagles wings through all your obstacles. I am definitely going to miss u as I have already been coz of our time table clashes this year !! Must meet up before u leave alright! 


Fiona:
Hey babe, you have always seen like a shelter there for me when I needed you. You have been a listening ear and love guru and always looking out for me. As I continue in my quest to pursue my dreams, you too must do so. Reaching your goal , knowing you have tried everything in your strength to get there is the best feeling darling. Continue to reach out to the students in your fun way but at the same time do not burn out and tire yourself out alright? Take care of your health and all the best in your studies. You can’t please everyone everywhere, but you can please the one who created you n put you hear. I am honestly going to miss you girl!


Kenneth:
ICC boss, thank you for helping me and guiding me and showing me the ropes at times in ICC. We have brought it up to where it is now and I am really sad to have to leave. I would definitely miss these students so much. Working with you has not been one of hearts and roses and there are many bumpy roads. We have went through together. I would like to say a little thank you for being so patient with me. Thank you for always supporting me in all that I have done and being there to give me suggestions to improve myself. Please do take care of these MR babies, they are really capable don’t let their ability go to waste but train them to be better MR people.
Wendy Lee:
Hi girl, thanks for all the fun times in the staff room and the random chat we shout across the staff room just to clarify and the cockpit help you always would willingly render to me. The time spent knowing you are always so short that I wish to have more time to spend chatting with you. I have always admired you and your patience to 2A3 and I would always love to walk pass your class and see these kids flocking to you to seek your help. Thank you for helping me learn to be a patient person and I would be sure to take all those things you taught me into life as I embrace teaching.
Janice
Friendly, outgoing and fun teacher you come across to me. Thank you for giving me the chance to teach in your class 1T1 and giving me the opportunity to learn from you. Thank you so much for teaching me to be patient with these students and tolerance. Now it is my turn to showcase what you have taught me to my students in the new school. Take good care of yourself and have a great time moulding the future of this world.


Kahbini
Hey virgin baby! I hate to say this but I have to say goodbye and I am gonna miss you so much and all the nonsense we crap about in this staff room. I would want thank you for always looking out for me not to be abuse and over taxed. I am gonna miss all this times together and if I could turn back time, I would want to have you walk into this chapter of my life again. Shit as you read this I would already be missing you.


Gim Chye:
Heard you are also saying goodbye too! No matter you will be, just know that you will always be remembered back here in Siglap. Thank you so much for your help and support these past few years and I also would like to thank you always for the company to lunch on Fridays. I seriously got to know you better. I would like to wish you all the best in whatever you intend to do. Stay happy and full of randomness!


Kaliq
Thank you so much for the tons of time you have fetch me home from invigilation. You are ever so nice and obliging. Thank you so much for all the fun times you have given me while I knew you. Honestly I never knew you were such a joker, but the laughter and memories you have created in Siglap will always be remembered. As I embark on my journey to my new career, I wish you all the best and don’t forget to keep up the good job to teach this students and guard the important values they have. Thank you so much for teaching me to be obliging and gentle giant side.



Farida

Ritina
Aunty Fong!!! hee hee joking. Don kill me ah!!! but well just wanted to thank you a lot for all your help and guidance and crazy times I have w you. I would always get golden advices from you and you have always been supportive of me in my path towards an educator. You have always been in my eyes a dedicated teacher and a loving friend to those around you. The times you would just drag yourself to school even if you are on a wheel chair. Gosh! I take my hats off to you, your dedication to them is just greatly applaud by me. The times you would stay back in school for study, lesson planning etc till late in the night, really amazes me. I also enjoy the random times I have to chat with you and all the funny things you would say. I would like to thank you also for your fun, joy, laughter and memories you have left with me. I would certainly miss Kbox time with you and all the corny jokes you tell. Oh man!! I am so missing you already! Take care of yourself and big huggies for all you have done for me.


Fuzah
Hey babe, I am so gonna miss you big time and the fun time we had together. Thank you for all the wonderful memories together. Wish you all the best in your life and in your married life too… Next time when you get married don’t forget to put me on your invitation list ok? I certainly miss those times you came up to lab and just be there to chit chat. I also too enjoy the times when you come to staff room. And just eat and hang out. I wish you all the best in all you do and may you have a blissful marriage and many “small Fuzahs” to come.





Haslindah
A fun, interesting and caring counselor are words I can use to describe you my fellow counselor. Thank you so much for being there for me and guiding me in my Masters course and even giving me advices on how to go about my life and coping with my phobias. I honestly enjoy every single time I have with you just interacting and talking and having a random chat tgt at lounge. You have never fail to talk sense to me and I am glad we crossed paths.  I wish you all the best in whatever you do and stay happy always - Don stress over these kids.

Faris 
I would like to thank you for all the nice chats we had together and I enjoy sitting behind you. Though we don’t often see each other (busy busy busy!!!) Thank you for the memories you have given me. So fast time flies and I have to say a goodbye to you. Take care of yourself and have a great time in Siglap inspiring this young hearts.
-----------------------all who i do not have your photos -----------------

Others teachers i have missed out....
I may not have spent a lot of time chatting with you but I am glad to have known you. Take care and enjoy your time in Siglap. Sayonara! Goodbye!

Mr Low
Thank you for your constant encouragement and I really enjoyed working with you as our Boss. Thank you so much for your truckloads full of advices because without you, I will not be who I am today and given a chance to go into teaching. Thank you also for recognizing my potential and for even coming out with us for informal sessions KTV and Steamboat etc. In school you are our boss but outside of school you are like my big brother willing to come out and chillax with us. It is really sad to have to leave but I will take along the wonderful memories Siglap has given me & the wonderful friends and colleagues whom I have form great bonds with.
Mr Yam
You were the 1st teacher whom I partner with for the longest time and watching you teach have also helped me to grow and I am really grateful for the many times you have allowed me to teach in 4T1 and even take over the class markings. It has allowed me to learn how being a teacher is like under a sheltered environment and working with you for Honour’s Day 2009 n National Day last year and special events has also made me realize and discover my potential. Being a sports lover myself watching you run the cross-country race made me fall more and more in love with athletics which I missed dong for so long.
Mr Lim Kok Ming
My first ICC teacher I know, u always seem to have an idea of how you want things n a vision of things. The talents you have n ideas u give are really interesting. I remember one time when we went to SP for a field trip and you refuse to leave any student behind and needed to follow everyone back. I really learnt that as a teacher we must be responsible for every single child on our hands and make sure they are safe and they learn to be safe themselves. I would for sure bring whatever I learnt to the new school and new learning place.
Mr Chow
The first person I see every morning at the PA system and the one who also heard of my breaking news and also the 1st person whom I would call when I meet a class who would give me a hard time. Being in this school with you around has always been a joy… coz despite your serious side to the kids and the thunderous voice , you are also a loving teacher and patient teacher to them. Watching you teach 4T1 n 2A3 has inspired me to be more like you as a teacher and a disciplinarian too.
Mr Leong
I am so gonna me the chance to be able to work with you during CPA lessons. I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to be able to teach n impart knowledge that I possess to these kids. Whenever I need help and advice for CPA, you would never fail to help and not a word of tiredness was uttered and not a word of unhappiness when students ask for help too. Your love and care for your family was so great and I am so learning from you - That you would stop career just only to have time with your children.
Mr Sukaimi
After so many years in SIglap, you would be the first greeting face I see every morning. Thank you so much for being the one who would brighten my day at the start. 
Mr Soh
Hahaha !!! a carefree and cheerful life you always aim to lead and you have always beena great help in helping with w my “CHINA” Chinese. I always enjoy hearing your compliment for me esp. when I have a long tiring day and a word of praise or compliment is just so soothing to me. You have always been a great friend who looks out for me, encouraging me in all I do. It has always seem like you rejoice more than me esp. when I got my NIE offer letter, you were happier than I am … really doubling my joy. Thank you for all your help, next time if you still need advice in IT still can contact me.
Mr Anwar
You always have your little ways of getting me to help u in things. I enjoy the times working with you and doing things for you when you approach coz you don’t demand it. Thank you for teaching me the ropes to ask people for help and I will be sure to use it in future with my colleagues.
Mr Lee Lea Khoon
Thank you for giving up your seat for me and surely I am gonna miss times working with you. You would do things without a word of complain and your patience for 4A1 was so great I am moved by your actions. Though I may not have had a class with you before but having to b able to work with you for various events have allowed me the opportunity to learn from you.
Mr Lee Chin Han
Retired! Adjunct ! but never give up ! Your love and passion for teaching is so amazing and you were the 1st MR teacher that I know. I have always been amazed at how you manage Esmonde, Shi Hao, Zheng Hao etc. The way you teach in call is so cool. The funny jokes you crack with the kids. But I guess what I realize more is that you are so much more happier just having being an adjunct. You have taught me how to live life to the fullest.

Mdm Nashyita
Dance and boogy away .. you are always so amazing and I would never fail to forget that love you have for the students…. Recalling the past seeing you “talk “ to a student for an hour or more helps me realize that sometimes, it is our call of duty to reach out to those people who needs us most.

Mdm Leow
I enjoy the random moment I get to share with you when I was doing temperature taking with you as a Trainer and you would ask me interesting topics of conversation. Following that you became my RO when I became an AED. You have been the best RO anyone can have and working with you and being a person who would do things seeing the end product, your attention to details is always something I am amazed at. You have really handhold me when I was under your charge and you would constantly look out for me. I am sure I am going to carry all these lessons and teachable moments with me into life and thank you so much for everything.

Mdm Su
Thank you for all your guidance and joy you have brought into my life. You have taught me a lot of things in these past four years. I am glad to have known you. You have taught me that when I do things, I need to make sure I am politically correct and to be sight of everyone. I also enjoy the random chats in the staff lounge and the discussion of our favourite student Dexter. You have taught me how to be a “motherly” figure to students and care for them. Thank you for crossing my path and I am glad to know you.
Mdm Abidah:
My Mortal , I would need to bid farewell to you and parting with such great sorrows, I thank you so much for all your help and guidance and being your Angel was one of the most interesting times with you. As I take my leave I would be praying for you and looking after you from afar and wishing you peace joy and love forever. I have always enjoyed times when I work with you too. They are always times which I learnt a lot and get to have random chats with you.
Mrs Warrior:

Mdm Sahrul:
Darling, I really am feeling sad to have to leave you and I truly enjoy this invigilation times with you and the times you would look out for me and guide me around with your experience. I have always felt so happy when I see you coz you are always such a bubbly sweet lady. I feel so happy to be able to hear your problems and be someone there for you just to talk it out. Thank you for your compliments and I feel so happy when I hear them from you. You have taught me how to love kids, not from the head but from the heart. I enjoy hearing some of your theory or logics- kids passed in to the gate is my kids and I have responsibility over them. I am sure I would bring all this over to the new places of career and take care of these kids like my own. Lastly I really love your company always and I am seriously gonna miss u.

Brian
Crappy and Fun, Serious and Loving are 4 big adjectives I have to describe you… You are never short of nonsensical jokes and I can always seek your help when I need… Esp in areas of work, you never fail to stop helping me. You have always seem like a mentor to me , someone who would guide me and advice me when I need help - CPA and all related work stuff has always been. Your love and passion for these “monkeys” have inspired me to hold on to my dream of teaching I will be sure of passing it on to those students whom I might be working with and bring joy and laughter to them just like how you would with these Siglapians. Lastly I am always in awww at the large amount of respect you command from these students. Thanks for showing me the ropes.
Millath
A great guy to talk to and pro in sports… seen u around since the time you joined us in Siglap. Now I guess it is my turn to pursue my own teaching career path and be an inspiration just like you are to the kids. I would like to thank you for the laughter and joy you have brought to my life. Thank you for the guidance and help you rendered when we were working tgt in SWBC, it would not have been possible if you were not there. I wish you all the best in whatever you do and stay sporty always…. Don let the tummy grow too big!!!

 Faisal:
Hey hey, it was always so fun to have you around at staff lounge during lunch to add in to the crowd and join in the laughter. I am so gonna miss that man!!! But non the least I would like to thank you for all the fun you brought into my life and I wish you all the best in Siglap and in the future.
Ismail:
The time has come when I would have to move on in my life. But before I go I would like to thank you so much for all you have done for me. Without all your help and AV support I would not be able to achieve much more things. Apologies for the times when I am picky on things I need urgently none the least thanks for being patient with me. You have indeed taught me many technical skills and I have grown in the process. I wish you all the best in your studies n future. Take care of your family and sisters.
Maisor
Thank you for all the times you have been patient and understanding w me when I needed to use the lab. You have always been a person I admire a lot for your great talent and skills in art. Keep that talent growing and hopefully one day I would see our student’s painting in the walls of the Art gallery in Singapore or overseas and I can tell my children how proud I am to have been in this school and know this teacher. I also love the smell of cologne, just like a wonderful aroma therapy for a bad day in school. Lastly thanks for your occasional random help in my art and drawings.
Jamie:
Hey babe thank you so much for your guidance and support when I am in this school. You have been such a loving senior to me, always looking out for me in class. I have learnt a lot from u and all your wonderful teaching skills. I guess I would never regret being an AED in your class and at the same time learning from your knowledge you have.  

Judy
Goodbye is always the hardest to say and I would surely miss you. I enjoyed working with you on projects together and having to be there for your events in the hall. You have really helped me in many ways (definitely more than 1). Thank you for walking into my life and teaching me how to be a good teacher like you.
Doris:
I don’t know where to start this letter from, coz honestly there are so many things I would like to say to you and thank you for and I think words simply cannot fully express how I feel. Firstly I would like to apologize for the occasional hiccups along out journey together in Siglap. Secondly I would truly want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful opportunities you have created for me to shine and grow. 4 years ago I walked into this school, a fresh new stranger to this environment and setting, you prep me, showed me the ropes and help me deal with all the problems I face with in the school. I remembered the times when I face with problems in school and you would always never fail to lend me your listening ear. Thirdly, I am so going to miss you style of working. You have always prepare me before something is going to happen and would prepare me way in advance to cope with the a situation. I have always loved working with you. You have taught me how to be a fun-tastic teacher through my interactions with you. You have also been the one in this school who encourage me to sign up as an AED and now here I am, moving off to fulfill my dreams and career. Thank you for being my source of encouragement.

You have always been the one 1st thing on my mind when I need help in these admin things and also the countless times when I wanted to see Principal and VP but they are tied down and you would never fail to call me up. I am so gonna miss the times to have reminders from you and the countless emails you would send to my surveys.

I guess no matter what happens I would never forget the memories and working in SWBC together. Oh not forgetting NDP together. Time has flown by so fast and now I would have to say a goodbye. But I guess no matter how things may change the laughter and fun would forever be in my memories.

I enjoy being with you in the same school and same team for Emergency Rescue Exercise. You have really taught me to love those who needs help and those who are less fortunate than you.


Uncle George
My dearest long lost Uncle, No matter if we are blood related or mere colleagues, you never fail to be there to help me and listen to me. I recall one time during my interview as an AED, I came out crying and you stood there to hear me out. You have always seem like a great “grand daddy” - whom I have never had - who will listen to his granddaughter when the whole worlds seem to be against you. I am also grateful for the times and late nights or hours which I have stayed back and you would walk me out to the gate seeing me off to my parents car. Though many may take you for granted but Uncle George, in my eyes, you are always the best… If I have a choice, in the future, I would hope to have a grandfather just like you coz I never got a chance to see my own.

Haniff
Po!! Kungfu Panda you will also be remembered and also a great sport! Thank you for your advice when I sometimes ask you. I would never trade anything in this world for the advice and memories, joy and laughter you have given me. You have taught me how to be patient n loving with these monkeys but also at the sometimes tough love works out best for them. As I bid farewell to you I would like to thank you for all your teachings and sharing your life story and teaching methods with me. Though you not my RO but you have been like a mentor to me too.
