An Interview Scheduled.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls,

Today is a FREE DAY for me. Actually, this whole week has been rather relaxing because many of my students have either cancelled classes or postponed them for whatever reasons. As you recall, I spent my Monday (and half of my Tuesday) updating and polishing my CV and writing my cheo cheo cover letter. I was going apply for a teaching position in an international school near my place - The Catch : It is a Primary School. ahhahaha

I sent my CV, cover letter and 2-paged testimonial provided by Mrs Lee directly to the Principal of the school, cc the recruitment officer at around 4pm on Tuesday evening and by Wednesday morning at 1032am, I received an interview offer for Friday, which I cheekily rescheduled to Monday morning 10am. Alan said that (a) the P must have liked my resume, (b) P must have liked my cover letter AND resume or (c) the P must have liked my Cover Letter, And Resume AND my photograph. ahhaahaa

Wish me luck! I am applying for the position of vomit cleaner, pencil sharpener and also food feeder. hahahah You are RIGHT. I hope to teach Foundation / Primary School students. SIao Right? After teaching teenagers for 7 years, I now 'downgrade' hahahha. But seriously, many of you do not know that when I received my posting from MOE / Singapore, I was pretty disappointed. Because I had always wanted to teach in a Primary School but because of my degree in English Language (NUS), they did not allow me to.

No regrets though. I had a fine time in CGS and the friends I had made there (some of whom are reading this blog now...) will last me a lifetime, I am sure! :) Anyway, wish me luck on Monday. Can you imagine, this will be my first interview since 2000? O MY TIAN AH!

Sunday and Monday

9 November 2008
We had an enjoyable Sunday.We started the day by bringing Jay Jay downstairs to the garden for a walk and some playtime. He enjoyed himself, sniffing around the grass and running next to Mummy. Then, Daddy, Mummy and Jay Jay sat on the low wall, enjoying the light breeze. ahhhhh a picture of bliss.

Next, it was BATHE TIME. I bathed the water baby (Coco) and dried his fur whilst he tried to scratch and bite me. and then Alan bathed Jay Jay who tried to scratch and bite HIM.
After the traumatising experience, we left for Mid Valley for a quick lunch at ToastBox. Then, Alan needed to cut his hair and then we had a relaxing massage from 2-4pm at Cres.

In order to maximise our food detoxifier, we headed to the Bangsar Pasa Malum next to pick up groceries after a dinner. We bought LOADS of veges , seafood etc and then headed home to bubble them.

Alan picked me up for lunch today and we went to the nearby neighbourhood for fishhead beehoon. Unfortunately, the stall was closed and we decided to try the HongKong cafe nearby. Good choice!

I headed home to update my CV (for application for primary school teaching post)and cook up a storm in the kitchen.
