After a week, this is my second time coming here in this year.

:: お久しぶり! ::

Yesterday, out of the blue, I took out my basketball from its bag. I didn’t touch it for probably two years, so of course, it’s deflated.

The double action hand-pump I bought almost 10 years ago is still working. The needle is still attached to the pump. I didn’t take long time to inflate the ball.

And today, I went to the court, where I used to train some kids three years ago. Well, it was not a so serious kind of training. 

お久しぶり!

Ohisashiburi!
(It’s been a long time)

:: Retirement ::

Post ini sudah terlewat hampir seminggu. Layan sajalah kan. 🙄

Mrs. Goh & Ms. Liew

Kedua-dua guru berdedikasi ini bersara pada tarikh yang sama, 30 Jun 2015.

Mrs. Goh a.k.a Teacher Lee Chooi Fun – cikgu Add Maths yang sangatlah best tetapi tidak pernah ditakdirkan untuk mengajar kelasku. Sobs. Tapi, tanpa segan silu, selalu saja aku menyibuk, mencari, dan mengacau teacher di Bilik Guru (secara senyap-senyap sambil pandang kiri kanan, sebab tak nak buat cikgu Add Maths kelasku terasa hati 🙄 ).

Masih tak lupa, suatu ketika dahulu, sewaktu di hujung-hujung akhir tahun Tingkatan 4. Separuh merayu juga aku minta teacher tolong ajarkan bab Index Number (sebab kelas kami tidak belajar bab ini). Walaupun aku bukanlah anak murid kelasnya, tanpa pilih bulu, teacher ajar satu per satu. Segala kemusykilan dalam Add Maths, memang akan aku rujuknya. Thank you, teacher. Siapa sangka, sekarang saya pun ajar Add Maths. 😉

Dalam basketball pula, teacher yang selalu ada di samping Mr. Goh sama-sama pantau dan guide kami dalam banyak hal. Boleh kata teacher ni coach jugalah. Kes dalam gymnasium sekolah, kes lari-lari pakai baju batik di SMS Teluk Intan, kes kaki bengkak sampai biru di SMS Tuanku Syed Putra, dan segala.. pun takkan dilupa. Thank you, teacher. Thank you for all the knowledge, the guidance, and the memories.. And thank you for always being a great and inspiring teacher.

I.. will never forget you. 🙂

Ms. Liew Lai Chun pula ajar subjek Chemistry. Dengan Ms. Liew, saya nak minta maaf banyak-banyak sebab selalu mengantuk dalam kelas. Bila dalam lab baru cergas, buka mata. Walaupun setahun saja cikgu ajar saya, I know you’re a great Chemistry teacher.

Entah kenapa, ada satu ayat yang selalu terngiang-ngiang setiap kali teringatkan cikgu. “Iqbal is one of my best students.” Hmm. Iqbal itu memang gila dengan Chemistry (dan Physics). Itu antara salah satu subjek yang aku memang takkan dapat kalahkan dia. Memang wajarlah dia menjadi favourite Ms. Liew.

Apapun, jasa cikgu-cikgu memang takkan kulupa.

TERIMA KASIH, CIKGU!

Selamat bersara.

Panjang umur, kita jumpa lagi. InsyaAllah.

:: Jr. NBA Malaysia – Regional Selection Camp ::

The Regional Selection Camp of Jr. NBA Malaysia has just ended last weekends. If you have no idea on what this Jr. NBA Malaysia is all about, then maybe you can just take a look at this flowchart:

JrNBA

Basically, the Regional Selection Camp is the third stage of the program. Previously in June, we have attended the first stage; Coaches & Open Clinic.

In this third stage, thousands of kids with age range from 10-14 years old were tested on certain basketball skills and a few vital tests.

The skills test which were at the respective skill stations were to test some basketball skills; footwork, lay-up, dribbling, passing & shooting. 100 kids (60 boys and 40 girls) who obtained the highest score will continue to the next stage (on the next day) and later, they will be reduced to 64 kids to go to the National Training Camp (stage 4).

So. Here are some pictures taken during the selection camp:
