Get out of troubles, fast!

It is in my nature to get into troubles.

Never intentional, but I always end up in some sort of troubles. Call me lucky, because just like cats with their nine lives, I always manage to get out of troubles smoothly.

Okay, I lied, there were times of REAALLL troubles that solving them require the assistance from various authoritative figures.

Let’s look at some troubles that I was trapped in and how I ran out of them:

1. Lavatory doom

Living a funky dorm life means sharing bathrooms and toilets with thirty other girls that inhabited that floor. A chapter in my university life revealed, “Once upon a stormy tummy day, I rushed into the toilet to do the errr … bowel evacuation. Several seconds later, I realised something *gasp *, an absence of toilet paper !!!!”

What a smart girl to do? ^^

I put on my radar ears and listened to every footstep.
I opened the door slightly and my eyes did a quick scan, up then down, left and right.
Assured that there were definitely no other people within 5-meter radius, I tiptoed to the next cubicle.

Woohoo ! This cubicle had a new roll of toilet paper !

Mission accomplished.

2. The Inverter

I stayed up late one night (not because of partying!) and woke up drowsy the morning after. Alas, I had to meet a friend that day, so in a rush, I quickly performed all of my morning rituals in 10 minutes and off I went!

Once I got to the rendezvous, I greeted my friend with a brighter-than-neon -light smile, trying to hide the lack of sleep.

She pointed at my shirt and asked, “Are you wearing your shirt inside-out? Kok kayak kebalik?”.
I spotted a mirror nearby and quickly glanced at it to check.

Kekekeke luckily I got a brilliant tactic *light bulb*,

“ It’s intentional ! Emang modelnya gini! I thought it looks funkier this way!”.

Hueheheh … luckily she believed it ^^. In fact, many people did fall into believing that the shirt was meant to look ‘that’ way!

Moral of the story: If this ever happen to you, sok pe-de aja.

3. Quickie Quizzy

One thing led to another and I ended up with a teaching job. Workload and stress sometimes made me forgot to flip through my daily planner.

One sunny afternoon, I stepped into a classroom full of pale, panicked students,

Student: “Miss, we’re not ready for the quiz !”

Me : (puzzled)

(thinking, “Noooss !! I promised a quiz and forgotten about it !)

(trying to calm down)

( ting ! another light bulb moment )

“ Not ready eh ? How could you ? I’ve announced this since last week ! ^^”

Student: “We got lots of assignments and other quizzes this week”

Me : (hey, same here…)
“ Okay, I’ll give 15 minutes to prepare for the quiz”
(leave room)

I quickly ran upstairs, did a super quick search of the last term’s quiz questions, change the date and print them for the whole class ! Forget about photocopying, the photocopier is too far!

After 15 minutes , I was back at the classroom.

Me : “Alrighty, let’s start the quiz ^^”

Mind you, this only ever happened ONCE! (or maybe twice …)

4. Caught blog-handed

When I began “Butterfly Effects”, I wanted to be anonymous, a mysterious secret blogger by the name
of Arion. Months after “Butterfly Effects” first debuted, trails of students were found from time to time.
This blog was designed to be a venue for my rapacious daily rants, hence initially, I was a bit worried

Student : “Miss Ariooonnn !!!”

Me : “ Huh ? Orion ?”


Student: “Hehehe , that’s Miss Nebula”

Me : ( It’s nebulous not nebula, mate !) “Err ? What’s a nebula ?”

These days though, I don’t see this as a trouble, in fact hmm … I might use this blog for teaching aid ^^!

Okay students, don’t close your browser just yetttt ….

    Once or twice eh?? You do know that your blog is public and students actually read this… so you’re tricks out of the box Miss! 😀 Hope you have other new tricks for next time!
