Mind Your English....

J U L Y 2 7, 2 0 0 9

Some of you may recognize this notice. It is found in some of the rooms rented to students...

1. Apparently, the person who put up this notice, does not want to have anything to do with pillow and bedsheet so badly until he put this notice. The word 'Disclaimer' defined by Random House Dictionary as:

1. the act of disclaiming; the renouncing, repudiating, or denying of a claim; disavowal.
2. a person who disclaims.
3. a statement, document, or assertion that disclaims responsibility, affiliation, etc.; disavowal; denial.

A disclaimer notice is normally used to disclaim affiliation (like for example, 'this is not an official website of ABC company' or 'We provide software for educational proposes only and we are not responsible for any damage caused by software on this page!')

2. 'Pillow and bedsheet are not included and supplied by XXXXX'? It should be written at 'Pillow and bedsheets are not included or supplied by XXXXX'. It should be 'either...or' and NOT 'either...and'. Correct me if I am wrong.

A Poem for the Students (Updated)

When we teach with our best.... Yon said you don’t understand
When we try to explain….. You said “Never Mind, I still don’t understand”
When we repeat and repeat again…. You said it is boring

When we give you tutorial….. You said you have did it
When we checked and found none….. You said you have submitted
When we checked and checked again….. You said you have forgotten

When we give you assignment….. You said you are going to do it
When we ask how many percent is completed….. You said you have not started yet
When we ask you to submit…. You said “Sir, Can you extend the deadline?”

When we ask you to write a report….. You searched the Internet
When we ask you to reference….. You said, “I will remember”
When we mark your report….. You “copy-and-paste” from the web

When we ask you not to read newspaper in the class….. You fall asleep
When we hear you snoring….. You said you are tired and sick
When we ask why are you so tired..... Your friends said you are gaming and chatting the whole night

When we ask you to stop talking in the class….. You are angry
When we scold you..... You talk even louder
When we ask you to leave the class….. You said I have paid for the class

When we ask 'where are you?'..... Your friends said you having your meal in the canteen
When we are about to finish..... You sneak into the class quietly
When we are about to leave the room..... You beg "Sir, please mark my attendance"

When we mark your attendance….. You are not there
When we send you an absenteeism letter….. You give us excuses
When we bar you from final exam….. You cried and said “Sir, please let me sit for the exam”

When we nag you….. You thought we are just like parrots
When we tell you what to do….. You are not listening
When you fail your exam….. You said we are not good

My 10 Years Service in KDU College....

M A Y 1 5, 2 0 0 9

I joined KDU College in 28 December 1998. It has been 10 years....

I was also formerly a KDU college in the late 80s. KDU College has improved a lot over this 10 years. It gone through a long process. I have seen people come and people go. I feel that KDU College has the potential to grow to be the best college in Malaysia. That is also one of the reasons that I have been serving in KDU College. Eventhough, we have been through some bad times and good timers.

Today, I am happy to receive the KDU's 10-year Long Service Award. My wish is that I can continue to provide my service to educate students, not only students from Malaysia but around thw world.
