I'm still not sure if I look like a big nerd or super cool on my bike.

President's Cup Winners

video

The KL Cobras (my team) won the MIHF President's Cup ice hockey league finals on Friday night at the Sunway Pyramid. Although it's a non-contact league, the final game was a bloodbath.

Thanks to Farshad for the picture and video.

Forgot to Post This

video

I just got a reminder from a student in my Period Six class to post this one.

Forced Retirement



This is the real reason why I've been bumped from I.B. I'll admit that I'm not an easy person to work with, but I think this is going a bit too far.

Period Six



Here I am with Ing and Samantha on World Peace Day.



Jeff and Nawwar on the last day.

Good Night I.B.

Here I am stealing Li Huey's portfolio.





After two and a half years of teaching International Business Fundamentals, I'll be switching to Principles of Financial Accounting next semester.

Here are some pics from Period Three.

KL Cobras



I've been playing hockey in the KL division one hockey league. My team isn't bad....





but I am. Notice there are only three players with less points than me. These include:

- The goalie
- The spare player (who isn't even a human being)
- The injured guy/alcoholic coach

Tonight I get my new jerseys. Maybe that will inspire me to start playing sober.

Workshop Stuff

video

I'm on holiday this week, but I have to host a workshop as soon as I get back, so it's a working holiday. The topic is "Technology in the Classroom". Amazingly, I just discovered Windows Movie Maker and I've been farting around with it for about thirty minutes. I just used some photos that are saved on my computer at school. The point is that I've figured this thing out now and I think I can make some boss videos. I'm going to edit this post as I add new stuff to the workshop.

In other news, I'm on my third day without cigarettes and I'm in great pain.

Bandung

This year I chose to go to Bandung for the annual company trip. Bandung is known for it's beautiful women and cool weather. I really enjoyed this trip and hope next year is just as fun.




Nothing bad could possibly happen on this trip.



Take a peek in the window to see how I spent most of my time.



Some volcano.



Les and I at some museum, on the way to the most memorable golf game ever.



This is what happened to our golf cart on the 3rd hole. Actually, it was our caddie who made this mess, but the golf course still found a way to pin it on us. We finsihed only 9 holes because we spent over an hour in the club house fighting with the management about who was responsible for the damages.

Yesterday

(This happened about 200-300m from my school. The students in my period five class told me about it and I passed the scene on my way home.)

Suspect killed in shootout
By STEVEN DANIEL and RASHITA A. HAMID

SUBANG JAYA: Police from the serious crimes division shot dead a man who was wanted for a spate of robberies in several shopping malls as well as murder.

Sources revealed that police had earlier raided his home just 200m away in SS14, Subang Jaya and recovered several firearms and valuables believed to be the loot from the robberies.

They said that the suspect was on his way home when five plainclothes policemen blocked his vehicle and demanded that he get out of the vehicle.

The suspect replied by shooting at the cops.

“Police returned fire, killing him instantly,” said acting state CID chief Asst Comm Omar Mamah who was at the scene.

He said a .38 Smith & Wesson semi-automatic revolver was recovered from the 26-year-old man.

It is believed that the suspect's 21-year-old wife has been taken into custody to assist in investigations.

State police chief DCP Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said police were on the lookout for more members of the dead man's group, who targeted jewellery shops in several Giant hypermarkets including the Kelana Jaya and Puchong Perdana outlets.

Meanwhile, in an unrelated incident a Myanmar national armed with a gun in his 20s was shot dead after a high-speed chase near Pasar Borong Selayang at 12.15am yesterday.

An initial investigation showed the man was believed to be involved in drug distribution, murder and extortion within the Myanmar community for several years.

Police seized 18 packets of heroin, one packet of syabu and several items, including knives, from his car.

Back on the Ice



I'm going to play a game of pick-up tonight at the Sunway Pyramid. Believe it or not, there is a hockey team here in KL. I'm pretty good at hockey, so I'm not worried about getting my behind kicked. The problem is that I have the lungs of a 103 year old man. If you don't see any new posts it's because I'm dead. If I survive I'll post up some action shots asap.
