I'm in NEED of referrals, could you help me?

It all started with a deep respect and support for my marces, Kaye and Pehpot, who jointly hold the biggest blogversary contest this year (a whooping $200 for the highest pointer) that I joined the contest. The result of the contest update yesterday, March 8, made me realized that I'm in for the amazing race of my entire blogging career! I'm the 2nd highest pointer as of March 8, 2010 12:00 pm PHT. There's no turning back. I need not quit this game amidst my very hectic schedules. I need to earn more points to bag the first prize-$200! and the good news is YOU could help me by joining the grandest contest of the year by following the very, very simple steps:
Step 1: Open your dashboard and create a new post, put in a title of your choice.

By simply mentioning my name, you're helping me earn additional 50 points and YOU just gain 200 entrecard credits from me and a linky love to my PR 2 blogs (Our Adventures with Hyzyd and Away from Home) . You will also have a chance to win $5 by just posting about the contest, too!
The contest will end on March 18 so I'm encouraging you all to JOIN NOW!!!
P.S. What would I do to the $200 if ever I WIN because of your help? I will tell you later but this I can assure you, I will use the money in a wise and benevolent purpose.
Thank you so much.

Kindergarten Graduation Ideas

Last Friday our school celebrated the culmination of kindergarten-3 with a graduation ceremony. They look great with their black gown. I didn't see them wearing cap, some girls wear floral head wreath instead (not during the ceremony, but during pictorials). I wonder why the Grade-6 and Seniors here in Thailand don't have a graduation ceremony rindu. They just have a special meeting to receive their report card (it's much more like a report book for me) instead of a diploma. That's just my opinion as what I've observed here in our school. I remember back in the Philippines that we wore cap and white gown and we received our diploma onstage as we graduated elementary and high school years and the celebration is grand that's worth remembering for a lifetime.

Anyway, back to the K-3 graduation ceremony. The school prepared special areas with backdrops for pictorials. It's not like in our school before in the Philippines that we'll have the pictorials onstage and it's hard to find the right spot because it's jampacked with other graduates who wanted to take photos too.

Here are samples of the graduation backdrop that our school prepared:

The parents and grandparents love to give gifts at these moments to commemorate such a wonderful job of their little scholars. They don't have a hard time finding the perfect gift because outside the school's gate are arrays of gifts that boys and girls will surely love like the following:

Who could resist the charm of a "Barbie bouquet"?

or the power of the Ultraman vinyl Japan dolls?
They could buy their children's fave stuffed toys like Doraemon, Winnie the Pooh, various colors of cuddly teddy bears or a bundle of roses and many more!
The favorite of the girls during the pictorials is the floral head wreath. They look like angels with it on their heads.
More gifts are waiting to be picked up at my back. The prices range from 50 baht-200 baht. If you have a kindergarten who will graduate this month, what would be your gift for him/her?

Whatever it is, make sure that your kindergarten graduation gift is appropriate, something that your children will surely have fun with it but not overwhelming. For me, a good gift for a boy is something he will be able to play with during the upcoming summer months like a bike or a glove and a ball. For girls the kindergarten graduation gift of choice would be a new doll or imaginary toy that she has wanted for a long time.
I will be happy if I'll you'll share with me any kindergarten graduation gift ideassengihnampakgigi.

Pen, Paper, Pan

 Pen, Paper, Pan is a unique and catchy blog title for me. The author Yami used to work in a newspaper. In other words, she's a writer, thus, Pen, Paper and now that she's a stay-at-home mom for Naomi and Khalil, she used Pan to represent her being a SAHM that cooks. It's a brilliant idea, Marce Yami!

She just started blogging a year ago when her husband persuaded her to put up a website for her new clippings particularly stories about people living with HIV/AIDS. Her main website Mom writes for a cause was born out from that concept followed by Yam’s Files . Later on, as she learned her ways in blogging , meeting new friends and being introduced to joining sites that pays her to blog she decided to make another domain in wordpress platform to house anything about her experiences as a wife , a mommy, and anything that merits the authors attention. Thus, our stay-at-home mom just turns herself to a full time work-at-home mom.

The layout is fine with me with it's yellow background. It's presentable and no clutters of widget around. It's a 2-column layout , by the way. The header is appropriate to her blog title showing a lady in her kitchen with a pen and paper and a ...pot...instead of a pan. It's not a problem anyway coz the totality of the layout's presentation is excellent! She gave credit to Marce Pehpot for designing the header while Marce Kaye coded it.I just wish the author added archives on her sidebar for easy navigation of past entries.

As a writer herself, she knows what to write that responds to the interests and needs of our readers like her post about the benefit of using organic products and breaking the AIDS barrier just to mention a few. Visit her site for more informative issues.

Super Gulaman : an outlet of a funny teacher

Teachers come in different types. There are friendly teachers, funny, lenient, strict, and ideal. I could say I'm a combination of a friendly and ideal teacher. A friendly teacher, as the very term suggests, acts like a friend for his/her students. A teacher-friend, in fact, combines both the guidance of a teacher and the understanding of a friend. We all, at some point of time, aspire for an understanding teacher. Such a teacher acts like our friend, philosopher and guide. An ideal teacher is the one we respect from our heart. He/she acts as a guide to the students, while not pushing them too much. Such a perfect motivates them and boosts their morale. He/she tries to encourage the students and refrains from criticizing them.

A funny teacher is like a God-sent to the students. Such a teacher always wants to see his/her students smile ands make learning a pleasurable experience. They are not clumsy, as most people think them to be. Rather, they are witty and bring in humor in the most subtle form even on blogs like the author of Super Gulaman.

Why do I perceived that he's a teacher? As I read on the history of Super Gulaman- a humorous blog in Filipino dialect, it's his Filipino-Chinese student who gave him the idea of using Super Gulaman as a fictional superhero like batman, superman, spiderman who help spread laughter in a gloomy world.

His blog features stories of the author's expedition of life where readers will join him in laughter until teardrops fall...LOL! Stories can be found on the author's sidebar so you'll just choose titles that fancies you. It's another blog that will brighten my day when I'm bored.

Cotton Candy Buzz

It's a nice thing to meet other ESL teachers sharing about themselves through blogging. Cotton Candy Buzz is one of them. The author Riza is an ESL teacher and a computer teacher at the same time . We shared the same belief that being a teacher is a noble and worthy endeavor. Her first love is teaching English and writing too, I presumed.

Cotton Candy Buzz was brainchild out from the concept that there are sweet and colorful things in life that are beneficial and there's a need for it to be shared. The author shared her personal experiences in this blog and it is open too for product reviews due to her interest in wrting meningful entries. You would know more about her site through the "About the Site" page. She clearly lays out to new readers what would they expect from this blog. I appreciate her for doing that. It's necessary to have such page to orient visitors and new readers to give them background of what the blog is all about instead of just wandering around.

There's no question about her pink layout. I find it so feminine, neat, presentable and page elements are in order. There's no distraction when you're reading her posts. Navigation of the site is just a snap.

The author has a knack of an effective writer. She writes in simple, direct and smooth-flowing language as if she's really conversing in front of me while reading her posts. She writes simply but concise. Sentences have no unnecessary words and no unnecessary sentences on paragraphs. It's a blog with quality.

Just glad he participates:)

Sawadee Pee Mai, Kha! (Thai language for Happy New Year!)

It's been a week since new year and I haven't got a chance to visit this blog of mine. It's just that I'm busy blogging in my other sites (think of 5) , teaching, cooking, household chores and handling tot on a loose...LOL!

About my class, I'm doing great and my students didn't fail to impress me of their improvement and enthusiasm to learn more in English. They love our songs so much that they would beg to repeat it a thousand times...LOL!

I'm just glad that those who won't particulate before had already overcome their fear and start joining the class and the action songs. Some of them even stand out!

I'm especially glad for "Nawng Chit" (the photo I shown below) who won't sing with us nor stand when I called him amidst the teacher's persuasion for the past months but now he actively sing and participate. Oh what a joy it bring to my heart!

I just hope we have all a prosperous new year. For all the teachers: Continue to do your best for your students. Pray for them and enjoy them. Declare blessings for them instead of curse. We have great influence for our students' life. Teaching is a noble ministry.
