Having a break from homework. Currently at the coffee bean & tea leaf in Times Square. I like to think my current commitment with School Based Assessment for Learning (SBAfL) is priorities as it is for the National Agenda; for educators and Brunei’s education.
As I went through the module 1 of SBAfL, a slight missing and reminiscing of the late Dr. Anny Arbi. Years ago, prior to become a teacher, I had several concern on Education, especially on being a teacher. And I’ll go to my email account and send her an email. As SBAfL become parts of a new era of education in Brunei, and 21st Century Education becomes wider and clearer, I really wish to listen to her view and honest opinions. I wish I could do that again.
As an educator and a technology enthusiast, it become a natural principle to find opportunity in teaching with technologies. I think I did well I guess in this area. Though lots to learn and improve. But one thing that passes my thinking; I really wish, the late Mrs Aminatol Norilah Abdullah could see me now. Probably, could work together in some kind of ICT education project too.. :’(
They will always be remember; Its a promise. May I continue their legend. I’ll continue to learn and improve.
Dedicating them, Al-fati’ah..

Probably, I’m just one of them who can’t really focus about work while at home. I tried, but I can’t. It’s difficult. Distraction of the TV, Internet, Books and the people you are with in the house are not really the major distraction. The major problem is procrastination! Pretty much hard to avoid in my own psychology state.
I rather go out to do my work. And it works! So I’m heading to the Coffee Shop later for a nice drink and get some office work done, for the sake of Monday, the day after today.
Cheers! (Simply updating, and my 1st post using Windows 8!)
Just realise today, inside a friend car while discussing our endless topics. I think I followed plenty of singers, band, actors, actress, movies, fitness models, general models, book authors, football clubs and chef celebrities.. But i’m still lacking of genuine no. of soccer/footballers in my Facebook. I have Ozil, Thomas Muller and Mario Gotze. Any real more footballers in Facebook? hmm.. wonder stevie G, Xabi has their real account?
Time to add more!
“I was summing up my SBA+SBE’s analysis on my students’ performance for the year. The result put me in a position of joy and dissatisfaction. The whole day I was thinking on how it could be different and better if we actually have access of worthy photocopier machine. I thought about 2013; and the possibility without the machine in the school for another year. The word “struggle” flashed in my mind. Indeed, we will continue to struggle and unable to teach at full potential in terms of teaching opportunity. Overcoming a challenge to teach efficiently with limited resources may sounds majestic clever; but how clever you want us to struggle, I still favour a photocopier machine to teach efficiently for my students. I hope someone out there, can really understand: We need that machine. A machine that not only symbolize as a resource but also a tool of teaching, and opportunity for my students to learn more…” – My words from my heart as an educator.
