HAPPY TEACHER'S DAY

During my Primary Six times, I had a one-year honeymoon. We did our BIG exam in Primary Five for the sole reason to allow us to have one year of nothingness in Primary Six. I didn't remember doing anything in that year except play, play and more play.

Anyway my Maths teacher, whom you can smell a thousand miles away, and who inspired me to buy myself expensive perfumes when I grow up, always come up with something.

Once she asked us to memorise the timetable 13 to 20 throughout the weekend with a promise (threat) to give us an oral test the next Monday. I never believe and never get the point, till now, the need to memorise timetable 13 to 20. I know all my timetables to 12, mind you, and I think it is quite sufficient to get you going with the concept. I think mental calculation will train my brain better. (That really explain why I am no genius).

I tried and I tried to memorise them but I kept doing mental calculation rather than memorising it. I got bored. I didn't memorise it finally.

Come Monday, I was panicked!

My dear Maths teacher, presumably didn't have time to test everyone, asked for volunteers to test the students on their memory skills. I immediately volunteered! ESCAPISM!

I tested everyone..corrected them even.

Being patient when they are slow.

Whispered answers when they stammer.

Then the ball rang, my so-good-a-smell teacher ask, so Lolies, have you memorised the timetables yourself. Her face stern.

I answered with an astounding YES and even made a surprise what-kind-of-question-is-that face .

You don't trust me izzit Mrs. teacher?

You see I am a good actress.

HAPPY TEACHER'S DAY TO MY CONVENT SCHOOL TEACHERS IN MUAR.

Dulu kan, kucing saya Pak Malim takut pi sekolah, sebab cikgu-cikginya garang-garang belaka. Masa sekolah rendah la, ada cikgu matematik kan, cikgu pompuan, dia suka pagi-pagi dah tanya pasal sifir. Satu pagi yang hening bagai lalat pening, cikgu pompuan tu suruh semua orang berdiri dan dia tanya tiap-tiap sorang pasal sifir. Bila tiba giliran kucing saya Pak Malim, cikgu tu tanya, 4 kali 4, berapa? Tapi kan, sebab kucing saya tak pandai mengira, jari-jarinya macam tak cukup aje, kucing saya tak dapat jawab soalan cikgu itu. Lepas tu, kan, cikgu tu Lempangggggg kucing saya Pak Malim, aduh sakitnya bagai bergegar dunia masa tu kucing saya darjah 4, kan. Sampai sekarang kucing saya tak tahu 4 kali 4 tu, berapa.
