Well, I'm back from my holiday. I had tickets to the Philippines, but my girlfriend didn't so because I'm such a loving and caring and sensitive guy I decided to stay back in Malaysia and travel around with her. We went to Pangkor, Ipoh, Langkawi, and finally crossed the border into Danok, Thailand.
The town of Danok has to be the per capita world champion in karaoke joints and massage parlors.
I'll load up my pictures and give a full vacation report soon.
We did some role-plays in I.B. class about cultural sensitivity and adaptability.
Two Malaysian business women went on a trip to Japan. They met two Japanese business women to close a major deal over some sake and noodles. Things really heated up when the group went to a club for drinks. This was no ordinary club. It was a male strip club. The Malaysian business women seemed a bit shocked at first, but quickly adapted to the situation.
I really felt sorry for the stripper. He looked like a classic human trafficking victim. He must have been promised a job teaching English, but upon arrival he was thrown on stage.
After a little while it seemed like he had been dancing for years.
Edmund, Ganesh, Samanta, and Kirtti starred in a role-play titled "More Than U Bargained For."
Kirtti played the owner of a sleazy hotel in India. He expected his guests to share their bed with him. I'm pretty sure that's not a custom in India, but when Kirtti played the role it seemed like the most natural thing in the world.
I'm not sure if I'm joking around or actually angry, but I am sure that my hair is outstanding.
I'd like to say thank you to Mr. Sarno at CIMP for hosting the first of hopefully many Canadian pre-univeristy friendlies. I'd also like to say that both teams showed great sportsmanship and represented their schools well.
My department head asked me if I minded having a film crew come in to film one of my classes. I said it wouldn't be a problem as long as I got a few days notice. The only problem was that I was notified that I would have to do it on the students' holiday on Friday. I figured it would be impossible to get any students to come in on their off day to do something like this, but I got enough students to sign up from my first period that I had to stop asking people after that.
The purpose of the video is to attract more international students from China to study at Taylor's in Malaysia
I'd like to say that both groups of students did super-terrific-outstanding five start presentations. I'm really proud of what my students accomplished on Friday.
A big thanks to each and every one of you.
Fantastic work people!
All of the students who came in on their holiday and helped me out.
