A Toast to the new chapter!

3rd June…a life-changing day it is. I am finally bidding good-bye to the comfort zone that I have been lingering for too long – 8 years to be exact.

Supposed to go after the bond ended, but life had other plans for me. So, here I am, 5 years late.

Teaching — a love and hate job for me but good and not-so-good things will come to an end. So, here I am writing the closure.


– The very Tien that people know now is the result of teaching. Pre-teaching, I was shy and had almost 0 confidence. But the job forced me to speak up on a daily basis, multiple times a day, in front of a class load of young people.

– My friends from LYSS and TMS. Thank you for being so unpretentious and real. It’s people like you who helped me to survive.

– The kids, the classrooms…something I will miss a lot. I wish I could do more but I am glad and proud to say that I think I have made some impact. It’s always the kids that make the job worthwhile.

The UNloved…

– I kinda of feel like I have some unfinished business. I feel I can do more…but sadly at a teacher level, the impact made can only be that much.

– ‘Wayang’…Education should be from the heart…enough said.

– Humility…where are you?

Oh well… Alexander Graham Bell had put it nicely…

When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us

I am glad that a new door is found. Just that I am not too sure if I will stay in that room for long. Nonetheless, I am excited about the new change although I am sure, once in a while, I will miss being that queen in that classroom.
