My Stomach Vs Me

Just when One thought,
HHHmmm, life is so cool!
What more do I need.

Then ones appetite speaks for itself.
Hotpot, I neeeeeeeeeeeed hotpot!

There , there little stomach.
Hotpot is for the gatherings or masses.

My Stomach:. No it's not.
Me: yes it is.

My Stomach: go down stairs, walk eight steps, turn left, walk one step.

Dining Western Style

G'Day N how are ya maaaate?

After four classes I arrived at my 5th.
My favourite in my new school.
'Elite 4' absolutely ROCK!
They are farking.....

So, I turned up to class to find my students lined up in the hallway linked arm in arm, boy girl, boy girl as far as I could see.

I was then told we were to teach 'Western Etiquette'.

Cool for me.
Finally good food.

This school.. delicious food for the paying students. But exceptionally bad and shite food for the teachers. I'm serious! Unlike my last school where ALL teachers ate together,

Simply because the chef was amazing!
Everyday the lunch was so delicious.

In this canteen, it's like the chef doesn't want to cook anymore. So he cooks the most Shit food hoping that tomorrow he won't have to cook for teachers anymore.

Yes, it is not good, it's bad!
All teachers bring their own food.
I haven't cooked in 13 years. Not starting!

Buuuuut any how.
On Friday, he showed his craft.

The food was amazing. The steak cooked to perfection. The spaghetti was soft, no hard bits to be found and it didn't taste watery.

I taught the children how to hold a knife and fork. In your hand, 1st finger (mummy finger) to push down the top of both. Then I taught them the spaghetti twirl. Don't just lap it up, point your fork down into the forest of noodles .........

........ And then ........ Twirl!

Many new teachers ask, where have you taught?

IMG_20180908_161212.jpg O IMG_20180908_155323.jpg k IMG_20180908_170346.jpg , 69738825990D64CF70692E384E4FE0AD.jpg IMG_20180905_171750.jpg I've had many friends ask, where have you taught before... So here it is:

1st: Tianyang town in Guangxi Province. Tiny rural farming town. I loved it so much.. 2 years.

2nd: Baiyin city in Gansu Province. Hmmmmmnnnn! Loved the school but being a bike rider... No grass , no trees is no me. 6 months.

3rd: Shaowu town in Fujian Province. My most favourite place in China. 40 minutes by bus from Wuyishan. My god! And riding in the farming lands, five minutes from my home! 1.5 years

4th: Shangluo town in the Qing Ling Mountains in Shaanxi Province. An awesome tiny Mountain town. 2years.

5th: Hanzhong city in Shaanxi Province. Disliked the school, the leaders which made me dislike the city. 6months.

6th: Shaowu town, Fujian Province. I went back for 1 more year. Love this town!

7th: Shangrao city, Jiangxi Province. I loved this little city very much. 1 year.

8th: Dexing town, Jiangxi Province. OMG! The most wonderful little place in China. So amazing for bike riding and the food... Yeah! 2years.

9th: Huai'An city, Jiangsu Province. AMAZING! I loved my students, taught Grades 1 to 6, 50 students in total but the school leaders were horrible. 2 years.

10th: Ningbo city, Zhejiang Province. Love the city, but not my thing. Far too big. I stayed because it is my most favourite school in all of my time in China. AMAZINGLY OUTSTANDING!

11th:. Huai'An city, Jiangsu Province. I returned because I live this little city so much. I'm teaching in the most wonderful kindergarten and I am extremely happy.
