Syukur Saya Anak Malaysia ❤️🇲🇾

Pada 30 Ogos saya ambil cuti, pergi settle semua hutang2 dgn kerajaan. Minta hubby drive me around, dah lama x jadi mem besar 💁🏻‍♀️. Destinasi 1: JPJ. Hmmm ada saman lama belum bayar 🤭. Chuak juga, brp lah nak kena. Pegawai JPJ tanya ‘dekat TBS pun boleh kena saman ka Puan’, sambil tersenyum sipu (pegawai tu x nampak la sebab pakai 😷 kan) terus jawab ‘cari jalan keluar x jumpa terus masuk tempat bas, apalagi kenalah saman’. Sampai kat kaunter nak bayar saman ‘RM90 Puan’. Alhamdullilah ada diskaun Hari Kebangsaan 🇲🇾. Terima kasih JPJ 😍.
Destinasi 2: Pejabat Tanah Johor Bahru. Aduuuh brp la nak kena bayar, rasa2 sejak 1998 x pernah bayar. Nasib baik Dr Mahani Stapa ingatkan, ‘kena bayarlah nita, rumah u bukannya buat atas angin’, hmmm kawan yg prihatin 🤨. Masa staf PTJ nak bg bil ‘RM227 Puan’. Aik murahnya. Bila tengok bil rupanya cukai tertunggak dr 2016, denda lewat x cecah pun RM40. Mmg mampu sgt insya Allah. Terima kasih PTJ, kos yg amat berpatutan 😍.
Rasa sgt2 bersyukur hari ni tinggal di bumi Malaysia. ‘Maka nikmat Tuhanmu yang manakah yang kamu dustakan’ (Surah Ar-Rahman).

Happy Independence Day 2020 everyone. Merdeka, Merdeka tetaplah Merdeka. Ia pasti menjadi sejarah. 🇲🇾

Language, Context and Text – a new semiotics journal.

The journal encourages the presentation and critique of new theoretical proposals through careful scholarly analysis, testing of the implications of proposals and presentation of alternative viewpoints broadly within the SFL framework.

LA Annual Dinner 2018

Language Academy Annual Dinner – 27 December 2018 with Multiethnic Theme.  Alhamdulillah, everyone looked great and had a good time. The objectives are not only to gather and have fun, but more to appreciate LA staff for their hard work, to celebrate staff who are retired, and the most important is to bridge the gap between senior and junior academic staff, last but not least to strengthen the cooperation between academic and support staff. In other words, to rapatkan saf. We did it, yeay and I would like to express my deepest appreciation to the Task Force team and all involved for the briliiant job.

TALKING STRAIGHT

How to be direct and handle people who are not?  Hmmmm… a question to ponder.
