Lack of Romance
At work you have a strong desire to influence others so they may lead more significant lives. You often work in the arts, communication, education, and helping professions. You are adept at motivating and interacting with others
In love you seek harmonious relationships. You are a true romantic and believe in perfect love that lasts forever. You bring drama, warmth, and empathy to relationships. You enjoy sysmbols of romance such as flowers, candlelight, and music and cherish the small gestures of love.
In childhood you were extremely imaginative and found it difficult to fit into the structure of school life. You reacted with great sensitivity to discordance or rejection and sought recognition. You responded to encouragement

"The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation.
Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or
whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what?
After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation
comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it."
-- John C. Maxwell

Swimming through the saline
I looked at you and you breathed in
Well, that's the way it's always been
It all comes down to creating time
You don't always have to make it right

Chances are we'll make it back
fast food for the deceased

Offerings by devotees to spirits who are believed to roam the physical realm during the Hungry Ghost Festival.
Given the picture of the athelete on the Milo tin, I therefore christian this image
"Fast food for the Deceased"
Here's the offering I bought for myself for breakfast - mushroom mince pork noodles! Superstitous Chinese would frown at the placement of the chopsticks and spoon in this manner in any dish. This is because, to them, it resembles joss sticks in an urn or food offerings to the dead, implying that the person who faces the food is no longer alive.

the hurting time
| 7:47 AM
to everything there is a purpose;
every blade of grass and every leaf on every tree;
every living thing will surely come to pass and what will be will be;
that's when the hurting time begins...

Teachers have an overflowing plate, so support them
FOR the better part of my 40 years as a teacher, before I retired, I taught the stragglers, the strugglers and those who were weakest academically.
The public perception of teaching is usually narrower and localised. Anecdotal accounts from relatives, friends, working associates or neighbours provide only a glimpse what goes on in schools daily.
The teacher's job today is hard. She is responsible for the overall emotional, mental and psychological growth and development of the children under her charge.
She leads by example and multitasks to cater to the differing needs, abilities and characters of the children; and must make her lessons easily understood, interesting and challenging.
Teachers are surrogate parents, doctors, nurses, counsellors, advisers, friends, playmates and trainers.
They have an overflowing plate of student assignments, meetings, conferences, excursions, tours, professional portfolios and courses to attend to.
Planning lessons and marking students' written work and assessing projects take up a lot of their after-school hours and many find it exhausting and exasperatingly difficult to juggle professional work and responsibilities, and personal life.
It is to the credit of most teachers that our children and grandchildren receive a comprehensive and premium education.
The best gift Singaporeans can give to teachers is to support and endorse them. Happy Teachers' Day.
