From KL to L

It's been a year since my last post. Well, since I'm officially back in my so called 'leisure' writing, I would like to share my latest update on my career. Here we go..

Tadaaaa..surprise!!! I'm officially a teacher now. Yes, as what I've mentioned in my title, from a metropolitan city (Kuala Lumpur) as IPG student for 5 years and around 2 months, I've been posted to a school located in a rural area named Kampung Long Tengoa, Lawas.
       At first, both my dad and I were surprised when we received the posting news from jpns. Even my dad said to me that not even once in his dream that I'll get posted to a place which is too far from my hometown, and not even at any SK school. This is because all this while I've been targetted to be posted in any SJKC school as stated in my offer letter before I entered IPG. Well, I just surrender everything into God's hand. I believed He has planned something good for me, and for His glory.
       Without second thought after I've received the offer letter, immediately I made a few phone calls, and even posted in FB to search for assistants and more details about the school. With God's grace, some angels (my FB followers/friends) have provided me with not only motivation words to lift up my spirit to accept the offer, but also some pictures about the school location, scenario of the pros and cons in term of assessibility, and school staff).
        Moreover, to my surprised, one of my friends has given me her cousin's contact number, who coincidently is currently teaching in this school. Since my informers did remind me that the school does not has phone coverage, I've contacted that teacher, Teacher C via Whatsapp. Haha. Yay! From him, I managed to get our headmaster's contact number, and guess what? After about two days trying to get his replied via Whatsapp as I need to inform him that I was unable to register according to the date given by jpns/ppd, I decided to give him a phone call on Friday's afternoon. Thank you, Lord! He finally picked up the phone. Well.. When I told him that I've no transport to fetch me from airport to school, he personally said he'll pick me up and also arranged lodging for me after I've reached Lawas.
         Today, it's been about 4 months I'm teaching in this school which is famous with it catchy slogan 'Oncoi', in English means good/well. This school is well-known because of it excellent performance in sports. One of my year 6 pupils has presented Limbang district in MSSM held in UNIMAS, Kota Samarahan. She won silver medals in 100 m, 200 m, 4×100 m and 4×200 m events. I personally feel proud and happy for her. However, in terms of academic, looks like I need to struggle hard starting from this year, as the exam candidates from this school did not perform well for both English papers in UPSR last year. #fighting #yougogirl
         The most fun part about the school is we don't have to worry much about what to eat while staying in school during weekdays. So far, we always have free breakfast and lunch being sent to staffroom straight from hostel's kitchen. Even for any event (including staff meeting, ok?) that take place in our school, our school (especially our headmaster) is too generous and make sure that there is food or at least a light meal to serve our visitors. eat..hoyeah..
       Hmm..I guess that's all that I can share with you for this post, dear readers. Hope I can collect more ideas and being given time to share more about my experience throughout my service in this school #oncoi
