Lemons make Lemonade

this picture was taken during my last period of tutorial with CP2T9 2011/2012.

I was happy when i see their results. Everybody got more than i expect them to be. They put their effort at maximum level even they were scolded. I don't meant to make you scared or stressful during my class. I think you know what i meant, its for you to be better. Sometimes, i turn to be monster but most of time we choose to be happy.

You keep complaining Chemistry is hard and i keep complaining teaching you is difficult. But we both learn something very precious in our life. Life is difficult.

“Once we know that life is difficult- once we truly understand and accept it - then life is no longer difficult.”

In life you will have difficulties getting anything you want. It is very rare to get anything in life without some degree of effort. Only if you win the lottery will you have everything without effort, and even then you would have had to go out and buy the lottery ticket anyway so it’s not free at all.

May Allah ease your way throughout the entire life. InsyaAllah. Before i forget, let me list their names.

Front from left: Siti Rahmah, Shaneal, Angela, Elni and back from left: Juliani, Deanne, Madieline, Alexson, Emmanuel, Jamrey, Faizan, Fadziri, and isolated boy at the back hehe...Faiz.

Faiz gave me a pair of purple brooch during his brothers wedding. Faizan's question always something challenging to answer, Fadziri have a very superb understanding in organic chemistry while Shaneal is our college badminton player.

Every person in this class was very close to each other. I can see when they always celebrate their lecturer's birthday plus Fuad and Alexson's birthday. Fortunately, i can eat the cake together with them.

Whenever i give some exercise, quiz or assignments, they keep screaming "nasi lemak..nasi lemak!!!". Seems like they love the nasi lemak.

The person who are not in the photo are: Fuad, Nadia, Eleana, Charles, Boni, Aqil and Rushell.

Aqil is very talkative while Rushell is quite and very hard to come to morning class. Rushell revert to Muslim. His name become Amir Ramadhan. Fuad is smart students but a bit lazy and sleepy during my class. I always 'terpanggil' his late father's name. His father pass away in the early second semester, so he missed my class almost two weeks.

Nadia and Boni are very silent in class. I keep calling Charles as Prince Charles from London...his look is typical Sabahan. He was ex-MRSM. Eleana always sit in front line during my class. She was like not focusing in my class i thought. So, i scream at her "hah, tak buat tutorial". Actually she did answer the tutorials, but cant see. Her face turn to red and feel like want to cry. The whole of the class was shock with my high tone voice.

"Eleana, i'm not accusing you, i just want to wake you up since you like daydreaming and keep looking to the clean whiteboard. I'm sorry hehee i tak sengaja...."

The class is full of laughter when i said to Eleana, and i worry if Eleana feel sad or humiliate  because my harsh action.

“You can make it better”

That is one of the beautiful things about life in CP2T9. You can make your life better. You have total responsibility for what you do and how you respond to the fact that life is hard. As the now cliché saying goes:

“If life hands you lemons, make lemonade.”

Lots of love,
