Happy Teacher's Day

Today is Teacher's Day. I would like to wish all teachers in Malaysia a very happy Teacher's Day.

As a teacher, Teacher's Day is the day I look forward to. When I was teaching in Jerantut, Pahang, teachers would be entertained to a variety show put up by the pupils. Sometimes teachers would join in the fun by playing the guitar and singing. Sometimes I was surprised to see pupils who were quiet in class showing their talent in singing and dancing.

As for my teaching days in St Theresa Secondary School in Sungai Petani, I cannot forget the sumptuous curried chicken brought to the school for the teachers from Koh Choon Hong, the son of Sek Kiang Restaurat (I hope I remember the name of the restaurant correctly) which I savoured with greed for more. The pupils in the school performed marvellous Chinese traditional dances too.

In the last school I taught in, that is Methodist Boys' School, I did enjoy watching the sketches put up by the scouts and the singing of some talented pupils. I also joined in the games with the pupils.

I did receive presents from my pupils. They were mostly pens but I like cards with sincere words poured out by the pupils. The appreciation shown really put me in the air for quite some time.

Once again, Happy Teacher's Day to all engineers of the soul.
