15 - 3

After all that had been said and shed, yesterday's match rocked because...

- the whole school had gathered for a commendable display of the SAS school spirit

- meeting old friends like Mr Koa Chee Meng and Miss Wendy Yong

- receiving friendly gestures from my first batch of ex-students who came back to show their support - some spotting wild and long manes and/or with added arsenal of GFs.

- sitting among both the great and the small all attired in a sea of blue and white

- hearing important people in authority scream and yell like emo-teenagers all over again during the match

- a hoarsed-voice Mr Ng reminding the spectators to cheer the players on in the final minutes as the game was not yet over

- Devaraj putting his peers under serious scrutiny when he demonstrated the real spirit to cheering -->way to go dude! (or is it Zigger?)

- the 2 spectacular tackles by Hasiff and Robert that sent the opponents to the level of dust mites, and sparking off abyss-deep groans from the SAS cheering squad

- Robert returning to the field for the last bit of the game and from the spectators' stand, hearing him yell at the rest of the team not to give up - what a display of strength and courage in the face of grim adversity!

- his face-saving penalty kick that rolled the `0' away

- having the C Div game still next term to kick some ass!

Thanks guys for a great B Div season! :)

Just Like My Child

Have you ever watched the images of what's happening in Africa, particularly to children, & wondered "how can I help?" like Angelina Jolie, Oprah, Bono, Brad Pitt and Madonna?

Do you have a feeling of helplessness as you suppress your desire to help & just get back to the business of your day to day life?

Trying to make a direct contribution to the people who really need the help is very difficult and often times, the money you donate won't make it to the people who need it most.

The foundation has discovered the secret to making a difference.

What if you could save that starving baby? What if you could save 500 mothers from the same fate as her mother so they could live to raise their children? What if you could educate these women so they gain a voice where they have none now?

"Cher, you are biased!"

Haven't we all heard that before?

I checked up the faithful online Longman and I was pleasantly surprised by my discovery. Here's how the vocabulary folks define the word:

1) unfairly preferring one person or group over another:
Of course I'm biased, but I thought my daughter's paintings were the best.

racially biased attitudes

biased against/towards/in favour of
news reporting that was heavily biased towards the government

2) more interested in a particular thing than in another

biased towards
The majority of infants are biased towards being social rather than being antisocial.

My intuition was right. The word is presented both in the postive and negative light. Do indulge me in this train of thought after you have blurted out the comment so loudy in class, some very rudely I might add?

What is your favourite sport? Why do you choose say, soccer, over squash? Regarding that latest "Linkin Park" CD you have just bought - what made you decide not to pick "Fall Out Boy"'s offering? You are hungry and it is recess time. The queues at the Muslim stall and the one selling pizzas are always long. How about the time you sneaked into the auditorium screening "300" instead of heading to watch "Mr Bean's Holiday" which you had bought the tickets to - did you realise that it was an unlawful favourite choice?
When we are biased towards our favourite food or sources of entertainment, we are indirectly biased against the choices we reject simultaneously.
So is it wrong to be bias?
Let's admit it. All of us have our favourites and we feel good indulging in them. That makes us all biased creatures of habit.
So when is being biased frowned upon? It becomes obvious when you are not the chosen one for the class committee or to help the coolest teacher wash her car. The result? We protest and kick up a storm. We want justice done and call upon all the deities to aid us in our most evil schemes of revenge against the chosen one and the `choose-r' (whom we think has absolutely bad taste). In other words, when our feelings, or shall we say, ego, is hurt in Darwin's natural selection process, the other party is "biased".
In my opinion, the `choose-r' does err when she is openly biased. While many of us can openly declare our favourites, the situation becomes worse for those of us in positions of authority and honour. We have to be careful to uphold fairness over our subservient minders. Yes, even our parents err once in awhile over this. I'm sure you have had a similar experience.
I can think of one situation when the two faces of biasness, like two sides of a coin, work well for some of you out there. Imagine casting your eyes over the group of girls and jackpot! You zoomed in on your favourite, walk up to her and make your opening speech. In your mind, her girlfriends are smitten with envy. With glassy eyes, they coyly cry out, "Why you biased against us?" You wink that suave gesture and deep inside, you love all the attention showered upon you.

So you think you are not - biased?

I guess I have not updated this blog as regularly as before with snapshots of my encounters in SAS. So I thought I will also start penning my thoughts on a few issues around the village. In case you get carried away thinking that you will be able to pick up some juicy bites here, please surf elsewhere. I know better to avoid controversy. :)

So here it goes.

On teacher absenteesm...

I was standing in for some teachers today. Students often ask me (I'm sure they do so out of their deepest concern for the plights of teachers who are missing-in-action), "Sir, where's Miss X?"

You know, I find that question very intriguing.

My response? I would frown, most sincerely, peer into my pockets and reply, "She's not in my pocket. I'm sorry I cannot help you out here."

Many students catch the drift cum humour quickly but to the absolute clueless, they often leave with this bewildered expression on their faces and probably a conclusion that this teacher is a total wacko.

My point being - most of the time, we do not know why other teachers are absent from school. Even if we do, we are not entitled to reveal the personal agendas of our colleagues to students.

Nevertheless, thanks for the enquiry. Next time, try the MTD (Missing Teachers Department). :)
