Farewell P1

The perfect class to start the day. I have a great respect for Period One because they are always the first to have to figure out my new lessons and activities. Once I go through it with Period One, I always have some great examples of work to show other periods.

I really feel bad for a lot of the kids in this class because they always seem to have car trouble. It seems that at least five cars break down on the way to school each morning.

At least five more students will be late because they are running on Malaysian Standard Time.

I am not a morning person, but I requested to teach first period next semester because I've always had great luck with P1.

UPDATE: I just looked at the enlarged photo and I must say that Yu Tiong is not in my good books right now. Although, we did do a lesson on non-verbal communication and he may just be trying to refresh everyone's memory before the final exam.

Good luck tomorrow,
Mr. St.G

Scenes from Mad About Canada

Just another night at the museum.

I swear I saw something down there.


Sure he stole my keys, but that doesn't mean we can't dance. Moments before the infamous booty shake.

Thanks to Szujane for sending the pics:)

Mad About Canada

A photo of Jia and I just before Mad About Canada.

After my guest appearance in the show, the students called some of the lecturers out to sing or dance. My apologies to anyone who witnessed my Numa Numa dance. I have less rhythm than Al Gore. I'm sure some of the photos of that moment will appear on the internet. I'll try and track one down and post it.

Congratulations to all of the students involved. It was a great time for me.

What am I Doing This Weekend?

I've been living near the Summit Mall for nearly a year now and have never bothered to visit. One of my students just informed me that there is a Subway at Summit.

Weekend plans:

Saturday lunch: BMT
Saturday dinner: Meatball
Sunday lunch: Pizza
Sunday dinner: Cold Cut

That is all.

Rosebanker 4 Life

The greatest trip ever. Our class took a graduation trip to Washington D.C. I'm not in this picture because I was with Colin and Ryan looking for the latest N.W.A. tape.

This is a photo of the grade 8 prom. One day while I was eating glue at the back of the room I realized that there were a lot of hot girls in our class. At that moment I said, "Here Logan, you can have the rest of my glue."

Take a guess which girl was my prom date. I'll never forget the summer before high school. Some nights, I'd ride my bike home at 2 or 3 in the morning.

This is a really cool photo of Ryan at the height of the 90210 craze. He never jumped on the Chicago Bulls/L.A. Raiders bandwagon.

I'm pretty sure I met Colin before kindergarten, which makes him my oldest friend. A long time ago a good Friday night started with a game of "Dark Tag" as a warm-up followed by a round of "Fence Hopping".

Fence hopping was a very simple game. We would simply run through backyards and try not to get caught.

Mr. Ingles aka Hugh/The Hugh/The Hubert

I always loved Picture Day. It was a chance to dress up in my best clothes. Every year I had trouble deciding between wearing a tie or a bow tie. In grade two I went with the tie.

I can remember this day, but I never knew a photo exisited. This was my first day at Rosebank Rd. Public School. I have been identified in this photo, but I'm not sure which kid I am. I think about 15-20 minutes after this photo was taken I was crying for my mommy.

Note to Self: When visiting Singapore next time, get a hotel as far away from Orchard Rd as possible.

It turns out that the Hilton was the cheapest option in the Orchard Rd. area. I've never paid so much for a hotel in my life. However, the location couldn't have been better.

Before my night out I figured I might as well do something touristy. This is a small statue of a lion. Hip-hop hooray!!!

This is the big lion. I thought it would be much bigger.

This is me on a bridge in an unknown location.

Here I am somewhere in Singapore. I'm not the biggest fan of my appearance in this picture.

I had Tuesday and Wednesday off this week so I decided to take a short trip to Singapore. I believe Singapore is the most expensive place I've ever been in my life. I'm lucky I was only there for two days. I haven't seen a Subway Sandwich in Malaysia, so I had Subway for lunch and dinner both days:).

After spending so much on a room at the Hilton, I didn't end up getting back until about 4:15 am. In hindsight, I should have just punked it out on a park bench.

I estimate that if I had been busted for all of the infractions I committed I would have been fined $10,000 and received 3 canings.
