first day of raya hols, and i had immaculately planned out my day.

0600 - wake up and run
0800 - come home and shower
0900 - sleep
1300 - have lunch, head out to go shopping
1900 - come home, dinner, tv, read, go online, etc etc.

however, in the morning it was just so cold from the rain yesterday, and my bed was so cosy and warm that when the alarm rang i just turned it off and snuggled up a little tighter under the sheets. 

right now i'm feeling rather disgruntled that i didn't stick to my plan and missed getting in my dose of exercise. therefore, i've cancelled all plans for the day so that i'll be able to go running at 5pm later.

in the meantime, i'm stuck at home with nowhere to go, and i thought i'd share some pictures from when i was still working at kingsley international.

so, here you go.

the school building.

the students of year 4 class, where i was the teacher's assistant.
however, i was transferred to the year 3 class after one week. which was a pity because i really liked the year 4s.

 this was taken on my last day. :')

me with ezwan and shahil.

jia yao. 
this little guy has such a cheeky face, don't you agree? and i think he's the best looking guy in the class. the girls always tease and disturb him, and he just smiles and teases them back. so cute!

i told him "jia yao, when girls tease you, it means they like you!" 

ted, one of the koreans in the class. his real name's jae won, but they gave all the korean exchange students english names so that their names would be easier to remember.

i learned a couple of korean words from them

teji - pig 
(they were calling one of their classmates this so i asked them what it meant. they didn't know how to translate 'pig' from korean to english, so one of them made a pig nose and said "oink, oink!" to make me understand :D)

shibaye - no idea what this is, but i think it's a bad word because they always use this when they argue with their classmates.

anja - sit down
(i went and googled this word on google translate because they didn't understand when i told them to sit down in english)

jebai - please

kamza hamida - thank you

shoroyo / shiroyo - nice / not nice

chigu - friend

beyane - sorry
(i figured out the meaning of this when one of the korean boys spilt water all over the floor, and when i was wiping it up he kept on repeating "beyane, beyane!")

drawn by ted.

the boys playing i dunno what.

shahil and ivan.

oemgee would you look at ivan's chubbeh cheeks?


amelia and judith. so young and already so pretty!

the students of kingsley from year 3 up to year 9 during extra curricular activities.

me with jet and dylan.

the boys photobombing me and the girls.

celebrating shevonne's birthday.

angry birds cake.

girls of year 3 and year 4.

year 3 gave me this on my second last day of work. i was really touched, even more so as i had just scolded the whole class for being naughty a couple of hours prior to this. 

there will be further posts on my experience working at kingsley international, so stay tuned for more! :)
