This is a story of my home development...
It took about 2 months for me and my "papa" to find the best house yet affordable around Kuantan area and finally somewhere in October 2008, we found a semi-D house in Taman Sri Inderapura.

Teaching? Well it sounds easy for me. I give lecture, students nod their heads. I give more lectures, students jot down the notes. That is only for those who are interested. I give lecture, students yawning or playing fool at the back without knowing their objectives for coming to class. When the time is up, I get out from the class and return to my cubicle smiling happily assuming that the students understood what I have taught. Then the process remains the same as it should be every time I teach. Isn’t it easy to be a teacher? It was easy to me but that was long before I joined the Kursus Asas Pengajaran (KAP) held at UiTM. The course had reflected me so much that now I don’t want to be the ‘old me’ anymore.
In general reflections on education, the questions are more likely to help you articulate your philosophy of education. The following sets of questions below are some of the examples:
• Who am I teaching?
• What should we be teaching?
• Why teach?
• Who teaches?
The second space, classroom reflections is also crucial to help you think about the atmosphere and design of your classroom. The following question might help you to have a better environment.
• In what ways is it important for students to interact with the community in which
• What resources should be available to my students?
• How can I use the wall space in my classroom to further active learning?
The last space, self-assessment reflections can help you think about your work this week and this year for instance, what have you learned this week? What have you taught this week? How are you doing in your work? Below questions are designed to provide you with some space in which you can consider your own professional development.
• What is/are the most important thing(s) my students will learn from me this year?
• What did I learn from my students this week?
• What was I thinking?
