Our own smelly water
I still remember two years ago,come the rainy season, we cannot go to our workplace by car. We have to go there by boat, and to walk on a muddy road bare foot. Than, we become more clever and bought a rubber boot, hehe. The road now is much better as we still can access it by car even on a rainy season.
|Our green lorry lost control, went direct to the ditch.|
Even in that condition, we still success in handling sports at district level. The only problem is, the staff from the other school are not willing to stay longer in our school because of the electricity and water problem, and also, its hard to get a phone line there, hehe. Tell you a secret, the better place to get a line there is by putting your phone by the window.
Come the fasting month, even my workplace is far away from Pitas Town, (you need at least an hours to get there) but we still have our own bazaar. Some of the staff will sell food in front of their house and mind you, theirs taste better than the one that I bought from the other bazaar, hehe. Ahh, I know, no matter how tasty is is, you can never go there to buy it, hehe.
Some bitter sweet memories while I was there are :
1. There was a time when all the staff there including me, have to eat eggs for a week because we ran out of food supplies. The road cannot be used and the strong waves wouldn't allowed us to go anywhere.
3. There's a staff who also happen to have an epilepsy seizure had a crush on me, that was scary, haha. I was getting mad every time they mentioned his name in front of me. I guess seeing me getting angry was an enjoyable moment for some of my male colleagues (I just knew this, as one of the staff say that he like to make me angry because even if I get angry, I still be able to laugh). But its all stop when I got engaged, hehe.
4. A month before I left my workplace, we were living in the dark. There was a problem with our genset, and we were in darkness not just for a day, but for a month. I don't know if the situation is already back to normal now, but what I do know is when the genset cannot operate, so does our water pump, so there are no water supply too. Imagine how hard it is to do your business in the toilet when you have to fill up your bucket first, haha.
5. We drink mineral water, never have the heart to drink our own smelly water, hehe. Every time we went to Kota Marudu, we will buy at least two box of mineral water.
6. The small amount of staff make us closer to each other. I, myself have build a new friendship there. I befriend with everybody, even with the cleaners. They were so nice to me, I remember, there's a time when I asked one of the cleaner to cook for me, haha. The next day, they really brought food to the office, even our boss was surprised when he found out about it, haha. In a big event, we definitely will make sure that it will success, no matter how hard it is. Some staff were naughty, some are lazy but that kind of staff is exist everywhere, right?
There's a lot of things that I want to share about SMK Telaga, but I think what I am sharing now is more than enough. I have seen many people complained about their workplace, about their problem, but that's the way it is. Every problem is a challenge, without it, our life will be boring. Just enjoy it and you will not feel is as a burden on the shoulder.
To some of my colleagues who I know will read this, especially Marcus Khoo, I know all of you will gonna miss me so much, haha. Trust me, I do miss some of you too (not all of them deserve being miss by me, hehe). When you see food, I am sure most of you will remember me ... (^.^). Wish me luck for my new life everyone.
