From the very humble beginning in the outback of super fast paced Selangor....where I had served as a freshly out of the oven guru latihan maktab.
The children were from the Felda scheme and also from the nearby villages.
Being a very young teacher....I was 19 going 20 ..I was stern but friendly.Anxiously trying all that I have learnt in my so called maktab..
I taught English and a number of other lessons and for sure never agama to pupils of year 3,4 and 5.Remebered some of their names...Samani,Mahmudah Mingan,Aishah,Noraini Abu.
After 2 1/2 years I left them amidst tears to Kangar English School in Perlis.
Whenever I passed by Tanjung Malim,there was this inner voice urging me to take a detour and wander up the Ulu Bernam road that I have taken 40 years before.
Was wondering what happened to my pioneer students...some may have cucus of their own.Yes,I went to the wedding of my sudent's children.Felt sooo old.
I was a temporary teacher teaching Home Science in a secondary school 40 km away from home.And one day I received a letter 20 years later from one of the students..
In my fast dwindling mind ...I could recollect but a few of the pupils in Sri Indera,Stella,Utan Aji,Kayang,TTB,Sena....as I have yet to acquire the needs of taking pictures.
And when I was in SKRPB I took hundreds of them..
.And they tell hundreds of stories.
Hmmm.....It would be practical if teachers could have a log of sort to keep records of children under them and come 30 years later ...we could reminisce who ever been with us.I did a scrap book once where children wrote their biodata and I compiled them into year book.Alas...the flood came visiting and all my treasures and memories were washed away......Poor me!
The name of my first school is the name of this limau.Can you make a guess ?
