Today, the epidemiology class was like yesterday and the day before – total waste of time. It was told that our teacher was accompanying Shkarin (President of NNSMA) earlier this morning. The teacher was supposed to come at 11 am, but look how long we waited:
Damn! Almost an hour waiting… USD went down the drain again…
So what did we do?
We had Jawi and Khat lessons. Nantha’s, Kok King’s, Rose’s and Ka Keat’s names were written aesthetically by Ija.
Then, they got awfully interested in Jawi because the Khat written by Ija was beautiful. For those who still don’t know, Jawi is the Arabicized Malay writing, and Khat is all about aesthetics in Jawi/Arab letters.
Then, they start learning the Jawi letters and how to pronounce them.
Teaching Kok King letter by letter
Teach me jawi! Teach me jawi!
Learning in progress hehe… 🙂
Then some people creatively did this:
Haha, the unseen creativity in Jawi. Kinda funny tho… 🙂
The teacher came for 10 minutes or so. She took our attendance, gave us something to copy/rewrite, then off she went! Instead of copying her learning materials, look at these people’s activities:
The MISA and UMNO presidents gayly wrestle with each other as if they can’t get a room for this 🙂
Finally, they watched Family Guy in my iPod. Kok King is an avid fan of Family Guy, he memorizes all the funny dialogues – he can even mimic the dialogues and make them funny for everyone 🙂
Then we went home. What a productive day!
