Missing You

Missing You
by Kanya

You were on my mind when i woke up this morning
remembering your smile
i guess the next time i'll see your face
will take a little while
i was remembering your arms around me
love the way they always feel warm
with you by my side
i completely feel no harm
i was remembering your voice
makes my heart skip a beat
but without you baby
my whole body's weak
i was remembering our times
the good and the bad
the funny times when you cheered me up
and especially the sad
remembering your eyes
how they always meet mine
remembering all the little things you do
to make my life worthwhile
i was wondering when we'll be together
just us two
i guess i'm missing you more than i usually do

Thailand is very colorful country. First come...

Blue is coming up while the Red color is still very hot hot hot. At this moment, I would not want to be spotted walking around Bangkok or Thailand in Red colored shirt or Blue.

Oh... its Songkran... I guess I just need to have all colors on my shirt and be ready to get wet!

Happy Songkran All

Equipped Teacher

The world is full of teachers equipped with knowledge, Father. Help me to become a teacher equipped with wisdom. Amen

Kota Kinabalu EARCOS 2009

I was at Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Malaysia to attend the East Asia Regional Conference of Oversea School (EARCOS Teachers' conference) from March 26 to 28, 2009.

What I like:
1. The venue - Sutera Harbor - Love it!
2. Accommodation - Beverly Hotel - Nice room, service - Recommended
3. Keynote Speakers - Superb (Alan AtKisson, William Lishman and John Liu)
4. Presenters - Superb

Not so good:
1. Taxi at Kota Kinabalu - They charged us RM 10 for a short distance ride (fare starts at RM 10.00 or Bath 100.00) - Too expensive compared to the Taxi fare in Bangkok (starts at Baht 35.00 or RM 3.50) plus they don't go by meter but one has to bargain and most of the Taxis are quite old and out of shape.
2. My stay was too short… sad

Looking forward for the 8th Annual Teachers' Conference 2010
Where : Manila, Philippines
When : March 25-27, 2010

Peaceful sleep

I guess I am somehow a bit 'baah' today but what it did help me to be happy -a bit. I've just said good bye to Baht 4,785.15 (US$ 136.710 - or RM 491.693 - www.xe dot com - 06-02-2009) to buy a pillow (Baht 3,960.00 after discount - Normal price was Baht 4950.00), a pillowcase (Baht 512.00) and a pillow protector (Baht 556.00). So far this is the most expensive pillow I ever own and I hope it will be with me for years.

One needs to have a very comfortable and peaceful sleep to be able to have a wonderful day the next day, I supposed.
