Salam and good day,

This story was introduced to me by my friend who was the Assistant Principal way back when I was still teaching in secondary school. It is an inspiring and heart-warming tale of teacher and student. It teaches me of the true meaning of teaching. Since yesterday was Teachers' Day, I am compelled to share this with you. enjoy!

blast from the past - LEVEL 42

Salam and good day,

I was browsing for songs to use in my critical thinking class when I stumbled across Level 42 - Something About You.... needless to say, I was immediately transported back to the 80s. I have forgotten how much I love this song...
No matter what others might say, I love the 80s... for me, it is the best decade for music with Level 42, Culture Club, George Michael, Depeche Mode, Tears for Fears, Duran Duran, the Pet Shop Boys, Wham, Cindy Lauper, Maddonna, Johnny Hates Jazz, Nik Kershaw, Howard Jones, Tina Turner, and rock bands like Van Halen who actually had an album titled 1984, and Bon Jovi's Slipperry When Wet, Def Leppard's Hysteria and Prince's Purple Rain ,to name a few.

and, this particular song is deeply moving and mellow and nostalgic. it magically transported me back to the 80s, rummaging record shops looking for the single, running to the common room to watch Top Of The Pops... and it still sounds so good.  Enjoy.

aku ingin memanjat pelangi
dan melumcur turun ke penghujungnya
mungkin ada emas seperti yang sering dikatakan
mungkin juga tiada apa-apa
namun aku
tetap ingin memanjat pelangi
dan meluncur turun ke penghujungnya

HAPPY NEW YEAR ... do not go gentle

Well, here we are again, at the beginning of yet another year. I have to say though, 2017 has been sheer hell ...so i guess this year would be... oh, i dont know... plain hell maybe. These last few months  I've been juggling between trying to stay sane and trying to sustain  my  willpower to keep going. With the amount of juggling I'm doing, I might as well be in a circus, maybe i could meet pennywise...beep, beep, hey... you wanna balloon? oh yeah, while you're at it... please eat me.  

Then i heard the soothing voice of Dylan Thomas saying DO NOT GO GENTLE... yeah... and sometimes Mr Thomas would do an Elvis impersonation .... DO NOT GO GENTLE  INTO THE GOOD NIGHT BAYBEH... haha... that always makes me laugh.

Right now, though, I feel as if I'm falling from a high building, hoping there's a safety net somewhere below...preferably being held by spongebob... errr... i mean friendly faces. But, if it turns out I have to hit the ground, then I would... but not without a fight...nope...I WILL NOT GO GENTLE  INTO THE GOOD NIGHT!!!  Thank you Dylan Thomas and Elvis.

And now, I shall embrace 2018, and whatever shit it has to offer. If I have to fall, I'll make bloody sure I'll land on a bloody safety net...or I wouldn't let myself fall in the first place. Winston Churchill once said... "If you're going through hell, keep going" 
and i will... with these two blokes behind me.... hehehe

The superheroes remind me of something. I will tell you about it sometime in the near future. 

may 2018 be a great year for all.
