I reckon by now those who have been reading my blog are wondering why did I choose to change the name of this blog from "A Temporary Housewife" to "A Transformed Housewife". Well..............since I've started working last month, officially I'm no longer a temporary housewife. I'm only working part time and I still consider myself as a housewife. Thus, "A Transformed Housewife" is the best title to describe my situation now.
Now, I want to share a little bit about my job now. I'm working at the same place that I used to work before I went to New Zealand. Basically I work as an "English Instructor" in a private language centre in KL. After 3 1/2 years, there are so many changes that have happened at the place. So, I felt like a newcomer last month. But I'm lucky because I still have some good friends who are still working there.
I only did 2 hours of teaching Grammar last month. But I stayed for another 2 hours to do some required management duty and also the class preparation. I had a class of mixed abilities students They came from Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Iran, Libya and Malaysia. The class ended last Friday where they received their results. (Each sessions is only about 4 weeks for each level).
Some of my students and me.
The most interesting day for each session is the Graduation Ceremony. Last Friday (3rd July2010), the theme of the graduation was "FIFA World Cup 2010". In the morning, there were some activities like football juggling competition and World Cup Quiz. The highlight was of course some of the performances done by the students. Some classes performed interesting dramas. Most of the dramas was about the dilemma of mixed marriages. (Like An Arab man wants to get married to a Chinese girl, An Iranian Man wants to get married to Korean girl). There was also a special performance done by some students and some instructors. They danced like in Shakira's new video clip for the WC theme song "Waka Waka". Everybody enjoyed the special performance as some even copied the dance movements. (well- I myself found that I tapped my feet to the beats-hehe).
Here are some photos during the graduation ceremony.
AND now...............at least I've explain why I was really struggling to find time to become an active blogger like I used to. By this month, I hope I can some time to sit and at least come out with a line or two.
