The PSYCHOlogy lecturer @ Inti University College

Guess who's the newest Psychology lecturer in Inti University  College Subang???????????????

Yeap, it's lil ol me!!!! You are probably wondering.....wait...doesn't she do a myriad of other things? Yes I do..... but if you recall, I am afterall two sides to a coin...I am back in Malaysia to pursue two different career paths simultaneously...one the academic which is more research and now lecturing(it helps in my CV as a PhD student!I am kiasu, I know!)...the other is the entertaintment side, as a host/emcee and model. I guess I always knew I couldn't just do one...because I need to be creative as well as studious? Does that make sense? LOL! I am thoroughly enjoying doing both though...because I have come to realized..... My full time job is communicating(I am a very verbose person)...I lecture in the morning....and I emcee events in the afternoon and night........:)So, don't be suprise if you see me doing both in one day!

Soon enough...the dream of fusing the academic and entertaintment will come true!!! A talk show on youth and parent-child issues....wootz~

Lecturing in Malaysia is truly different from lecturing in the US(held lab sessions for Psy100 in the U of Hawaii at Manoa). My first class in Malaysia was LOADS of FUN! Why? The students(most of them fresh from high school) were inquisitive, compliant, and a breeze to teach! Compared to my class in the US, most of my students were older than me, and not to mention BIGGER size than me!!! They challenged me in everything I said and some were rather disrespectful...tsk tsk! Stark cultural differences!

And here are my lovely students...... from all over Malaysia, Singapore and Sri Lanka....


Both of these groups were actually in a debate I organized...so I thought I capture some pictures of them...

During the course of the semester....I usually had activities during class..and one of them was to bring in a guest speaker....

David Lai, The mentalist...we were talking about extrasensory perception..... and he was a classic example of that...

The whole class enjoying his mentalism.... especially Kenji(guy in blue), first time seeing him so alert!

After the semester was over.....I took them out for lunch(don't usually practise this) because they all did well and like I said.... a great class!Can you guys spot the difference between the lecturer and students???????LOL! worrying picture!BTW,  You guys made teaching a pleasure.....Thanks~

Before I started and even now, alot of my friends wonder how I can be a lecturer..common comments were...

" You look like one of them!! You will surely be bullied"

And a few others I shall not mention.....hehe... Hence, I was rather hesitant as to what I would expect from the students in Malaysia. I figured they wouldn't be like my students from the USA, I expected an extremely quiet class and a lack of class participation.....BUT my expectations were blown far beyond the waters....they were very interactive with me and all of us have gained quite a good rapport with one another.... I guess I don't want to be a lecturer that gets disillusioned by students being naughty and bad...but rather to keep my passion of sharing knowledge alive by being a part of the class...my students even know the other side of me... *winks*

But I tell them...doesn't mean I will be less lenient with you guys! Will be teaching another class again in Fall 2011...hope my next one will be as great as my first:) can't wait! In the end, we are all learning from one another!
