today i came back from a long day at MOE (preparing for our item for the presentation ceremony) and found a huge stack of interesting (to me) articles online waiting to be read.
and now i’ve spent too much time ignoring my job (starting tomorrow!) so i’m off to prepare after listing the links.
this is probably the most comprehensive writeup on durian i’ve ever seen. then again, i haven’t seen many. still! wow.
somewhat coincidentally, tips for first-time relief teachers. it’s a pretty interesting blog in general (can check out the links from there too) and i don’t agree with everything, but an enjoyable read lah.
and after reading this article on how bloggers are being eliminated from job selections, i’m thinking of re-censoring. haha. but it’s just so mafan. sigh.
lastly, the chinese philosophy of swearing is pretty funny. never really noticed before, but yeah i guess it’s pretty true. what about ‘son of a bitch’ as an english insult, though?
