(75): My name's 'Blurryface' and I care what you think

We used to play pretend, give each other different names,
We would build a rocket ship and then we'd fly it far away,
Used to dream of outer space but now they're laughing at our face,
Saying, "Wake up, you need to make money."
Lyrics from twenty one pilots: Stressed Out
I love the rhythm and lyrics of this song. It's pretty accurate tbh.

Holla everyone! In my last post I told you that I'd blog again when Ted receives the mug, BUT unfortunately he doesn't have it yet so I decided to just write a different blog post for today. The mug had arrived in New Zealand on the 25th, but I think the NZ Post is taking their time to deliver it which is so annoying TT_TT Btw how's your Christmas Day!? Mine was awesome because I finally got my work permit which means I am now legally working in Vietnam which also means there will be a salary increase YUS!!


QUICK UPDATE: I went to the People's Committee yesterday to certify my work permit but I found out that the gender written on my permit is wrong :'( It was MALE instead of Female. I kind of blame my name haha! My name is Keith which is a guy's name and people call me Kate or Kattie. So I had to give it back to my manager and she said she will change it (ofc)! But at least I now have my work permit!!

(74): I mean I could, but why would I want to?

(74): I mean I could, but why would I want to?

I have really, really wanted to blog last week but I was too busy with my online work. I don't want people to think that I forget about blogging because I don't and I won't. I love writing! I actually have a lot of things to share to you guys but I hope I still remember them :)
 Anyway in my last post I mentioned that I'll be going to a food festival with my Vietnamese friend so here are random photos! (I did not take a lot of photos because I don't want to use my phone in public :p)

We ordered food in that Vietnamese restaurant on the left.

We ate BBQ and sticky rice for lunch! I asked for spoon but you don't really need spoon to eat the rice o_o


My friend ordered this tiny coconut ice cream and I had rainbow shaved ice cream for dessert!

(73): Hello, bitches!

(73): Hello, bitches!

I am totally digging this song! CL + Paris and her crews are just so amazeballs why can't I be like them!?! Life is unfair sometimes T.T
------
Anyway, hello bitches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am back! I have been very, very busy with school and online work that I could not find time to blog! I finally got a night off from doing online work and the first thing I did was to blog. I have TOO MUCH photos to share to you guys! I bought TONS of things online hahaha! If you were my friend on Snapchat then you would know it by now :p But I am confused if I should blog about my late birthday dinner first or the things I bought online >< Hmmm.. okay! Let's start with something interesting :DD

This is the MOST expensive make up I have ever had. Yep, not rich! Lol


When I was in uni I couldn't buy make up and everything because I was so fucking broke, but now.... =) I thank God for giving me jobs that keep me insane and  busy! I love my job and I love doing what I do :) It gets tiring and stressful especially with my online work, but I have no complaints! I am really glad that I took this path. I made the right decision to come to Vietnam and meet people who helped me in so many ways! Okay that's enough.

 If you convert this to my money it's hella expensive for just a foundation, but I watched some reviews on YT and decided to buy. I am not really good at applying make ups tbh. I just do what normal ladies do. Foundation, powder, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and so on and so forth! I am still learning how to be pro at making winged eyeliner :((( I need a Shaaanxo in my life :D

SO APPARENTLY I HAVE TO EDIT THIS POST BECAUSE THE PREVIOUS ONE COULDN'T ALIGN TO THE CENTER >< ORIGINAL POST WAS ON 20TH NOVEMBER

First, before I continue writing, let me greet myself a happy 25th birthday and Happy Teacher's Day :> #bringiton25 Today is just really a good day for me! You probably saw my Instagram posts about it but here's a detailed one. So today is Teacher's Day here in Vietnam and also my birthday. I went to school, attended my first class, and my students were all smiling at me :D We greeted each other then I noticed that they wanted to give me something. I was like, "what is it?" and Pollyna, one of my students, said "Teacher, wait a minute". 2 students came up to me. Elsa gave me a cute and small card and Joker gave me money HAHA. I asked, "what is this?" and he said it's from his mom :D


I know it's money because there's ACB on the bottom part of the envelope. It's my bank LOL
Everyone said Happy Teacher's Day and I told them it's also my birthday today so they sang happy birthday :p

I went to my second class and one of the groups had their acting presentation. I have photos but I'm charging my phone so I'll update this post later. Before the class ends, Faith handed me a rose and greeted me Happy Teacher's Day. They don't know it's my birthday today. Meh. I read the card and checked the money during the break time. I was so touched with Elsa's card. It's right in the feels <3 I'm glad she/they appreciate me as their teacher.

Hola guys! Long time no post LOL I have been busy (as usual) with my online work plus I didn't really want to blog without photos, BUT now the big change is here! I got paid yesterday and it is MORE than enough to purchase an iPhone so I immediately bought one last night! :3

Without further ado, here are the photos!! 

I bought the phone from www.hnammobile.com. The people there were very nice although I had problems with communication because of the language. My Vietnamese friend accompanied me and I am really, really thankful for her because she went out with me even if she had work to attend.



These are the accessories of the phone.

(70:) I thank God for friends

My post is a bit different today. I want to say a lot of things, well, not really say because I can't talk right now. Literally. I lost my voice because of my cold. Sad life. The main important thing about my job is my voice. How could you take that away from me?! LOL. Today I didn't attend the class because there's no fucking words that are coming from my mouth, only phlegm (eww gross). Yeah I know! And tomorrow I don't think I can attend the class either. And NO WORK NO PAY! >< This is my first time to be absent (2nd tomorrow) and it's November! It's my month T__T Such a perfect timing! 
I had my demo class yesterday morning in my part time job. I could talk but not as loud/clear as my normal voice. Before I start, the manager (i don't know her job position so let's assume she's a manager LOL) showed me the lesson plan. She taught me what/how to teach this and that. The lesson is about the letter L and M and number 6. Sounds easy, right? But you gotta do tons of things like asking each student, praise them all the time, have games, and sing and dance with them. There should be a lot of movements inside the classroom because they are kids. They are hella cute and tiny since they are only 4-5 years old. To be honest, I really, really enjoyed teaching them. It was so much fun, but I wish my voice was okay :( I could've done it better if everything was okay, but I know I will be better soon! :3 I learned a lot from my demo class and now, I am MORE familiar in teaching little kids. Since I'm noob in being a kindergarten teacher, the manager told me after class to engage my students more in different activities. Like when there's a song playing, they should stand up and imitate what they're watching, or ask more questions. Things like that, but there's always a room for improvement and I know in no time I will be better in my craft. I am more excited in teaching kids than my Intermediate students T.T whyyy isss thatttt... o-o I think I am going to observe the class tomorrow, BUT I won't be able to make it because of my condition so yeah. My contract starts on the 15th of November and I'm hella excited to see my cute students again! <3

Finally get to blog again after like, what, 5 days? Anyway I really, really like One Direction's Perfect. I didn't like Taylor Swift's Style at first (yep they're somehow related accdg to the internet) but the moment I heard Perfect, I'm like, "wow, this is my song" LOL. I think 90% of the internet or 100% of the Directioners (is that what you call their fans? :o) are saying that Perfect is about Taylor Swift and I don't doubt it. We all know Taylor likes to write about breakup songs.

Heehee this is what I'm talking about =p
So moving forward, my last blog was about Ted leaving. Here are some photos I took at the airport. 

(68): I'm gonna hold you like I'm saying goodbye

(68): I'm gonna hold you like I'm saying goodbye

Lyrics from Meghan Trainor - Like I'm Gonna Lose You ft. John Legend

I still remember the first time I saw you when I went to New Zealand last year. It was awkward but my heart was jumping from happiness. We held hands, you kissed me on my left cheek, we walked towards the bus stop, we sat down, and I made lame jokes like "Where is the Old Market?" because that time we were going to Newmarket.

sorry for my retard face :D P.S I'm not naked LOL

I still remember the second time I saw you here in Vietnam. It was morning of 1st of July. When I saw you, I smiled and waited for you to see me. You were carrying your backpack and looking for me. I saw you said "shit" because you couldn't see me because of the sea of people in front of you. 30 seconds of looking around and you found me. I smiled. You smiled. You went behind me and we met and we kissed and hugged. I was so happy that we were finally together again after a year. We rode the taxi and you were so talkative. You talked about the things that happened when you were in Melbourne and Singapore airport. You showed me the things inside your bag. You were like a little kid :p I was and have been so happy that you came to Vietnam to see me to prove that your feelings for me is real (because we broke up from January to April this year) I can't explain how happy I am until now. 3 months of being here in Vietnam together as expats is not difficult. We argued a lot but at the end of the day we still end up in each others arms. I got busy with work and I can't thank God enough for how supportive you are. I thank God for you, for coming to my life, for making me laugh, for being there for me when I needed help.

(66): Everything is fine when your head's resting next to mine


Hello guys! Hasn't been that long since my last post which was yesterday LOL I've got time now since I already submitted all the lessons from my online work. I asked Jea if I could take a break for few days cus Ted's gonna leave on the 24th and I want to spend more time with him. LDR mode again......
Anyway, I had my tutorial yesterday with Phuong and we went to Rio Coffee. Rio Coffee is just 30 seconds away from where I live :D One of the reasons why I love Vietnam is because there's tons of coffee shops around the area. Cheap + lovely environment. After my interview yesterday, Ted and I went out to buy cat food around here and we decided to try going to Rio Coffee and we were blown away about how nice the place was! In the end, I decided to have class there with Phuong so here are the photos! :)

 I ordered Passion Smoothie (38.000 VND) and Phuong had Yellow Banana Smoothie (38.000 VND). I really like passion fruit although its super sour for my taste. 
 This is Phuong, my lovely student/friend although I like calling her my friend because we are just in the same age and I consider her as one of my good friends here. I met her when I had my medical examination for work permit. She works as a nurse and we had a small talk and exchanged our numbers :) She is very nice and always willing to help! :3

 Hola everybody! I haven't blogged for so long because I'm hella busy with things! I go to school to teach, I tutor, and do online work. I actually have a deadline tonight but I just gotta do one assessment lesson and I'm free!
Ahhh~~ I have so many things to share~ I had a job interview this morning and when I arrived home I got an email about a job offer!! :) Yep, they hired me :) I am so happy :p I can finally receive more income every month hoho. I also submitted my documents for work permit a week ago so I'm just waiting for them to process it!
 Before I continue talking, let's proceed to the photos from last week first.


 Last Sunday Ted's students invited us for lunch (for free) :P We ate at Kichi-Kichi, a hotpot restaurant around our district.

Lyrics from Lana Del Rey - High By The Beach 

Hola, everybody! I have been very inactive in blogging because of laziness :p I started writing this post last month but I've been busy doing other things such as checking test papers, editing my CV, playing games, watching TV, and applying to other language centers. I need/want a part time job either in the morning or at night to increase my income lol. I get paid well in my current job but I want MORE. When you are young and free, you crave about many things, and you want the world to be yours (greedy much?). But seriously though, I want to live my life to the fullest and make use of my time properly so another job it is!

So today I called a recruiter who sent me an email weeks ago about an interview. I declined at first but now since I need another job I phoned her and followed up my application. I will be having an interview tomorrow at 10. I hope I get the job, but at the same time I hope not because it's not near to my house. It's like, 6kms, from where I live so I have to spend dong on xe om or taxi. But having another job is also good so let's just pray that I'll get it =) More income = more happiness LOL

Anyway, let's proceed to the photos, shall we?

Mochi, you look so fine :3

U P D A T E:
For people who view this blog about the issue of my hater "itsmelenalee" being Korean, sorry to burst your bubble, BUT SHE IS NOT KOREAN. If that is the effect of too much Kpop then idk how to treat that LOL this blog post has been receiving tons of views lately and I found out the reason why. Idk what else she's said to you guys. If you videocall her then that's fine, hey guess what? She isn't a catfish. Hurray! But seriously though, she is not Korean. Please Fiezalena or whatever your Malaysian name is, do not be ashamed of your nationality. You already revealed your real face via videocall and yes you are good at speaking Korean, but do not tell others you are Korean because we both know you aren't. Not gonna lie but I'm still looking for more fucks to give about this issue >.>
----------------------------

People can say shit about me but I don't fucking care lol. Do you feel brave calling people names from behind a computer screen? Nah... I suppose you're just being a pussy. You say you hate me so much but why bother exerting effort to write shit about me then delete it :) People these days.... such a coward. When you're not hiding anything, you won't change URL, delete SNS or make your shit private just because you "think" someone "stalks" you. Oh wait... did I ever do that? No. Only people who are insecure/jealous of others will probably do that. Stalk is such a deceiving word. Are you Kylie Jenner or some shit?! Can't you just be happy for yourself? I don't know where your hate is coming from, girl. Just keep the drama to yourself. No one wants to read your broken English with full of hate, cool? You come to my blog and read my post which "you think is about you" and then write shit about me? Wait, wait.. Why do you care about my post in the first place anyway? But don't worry, you are welcome to visit my blog anytime ^-^

I'm back after 2 days! I just finished making my first lesson for Learning Cycle 2 and will continue again tomorrow because I want to blog again =) How are you going to spend your weekend? I have work tomorrow >< My school has classes from Monday to Saturday so I don't have a choice but to teach but next Friday is holiday so I am looking foward for that! =)

For the past 2 days nothing much happened except I sleep late because of making lessons or I just can't sleep early. I've been having massive headache lately because of lack of sleep or sleeping too late. Huehue perks of working in the afternoon :p Anyway few photos!!

 Notebook that I bought last week. I bought it not because of the elephant but because of the message written on the cover. 
"But none of us really ever know what its like to live someone else's life. Sure, your friends might be spending lots of money on dinners out, booze, fancy gadgets... but for all you know, they are deep in debt, or working long hours in jobs they hate" I posted this on IG and will post it again here because why not =) I really had no intention of buying a notebook but that quote gets me all the time. I am satisfied with my life right now. I want new gadgets and more money (who doesn't want that) but I know I will have those things in God's time. Be patient, Kattie. I always tell that to myself. I'm sharing my positivity to all my readers =)

Hola mi amigo!!
Blogging is not part of my schedule today but I want to write something because I don't want to neglect my blog for a loooong time just because I'm super busy. This post contains few photos because I haven't transferred them yet from Ted's SD card. I have no smartphone at the moment (or for like 6 months now lol) so I don't have much freedom to take photos as much as I'd like. 

Anyway, I have been very very busy due to my online work. I remember I mentioned in my old post that I make and design lessons on Powerpoint and yep, I'm back on track! I finished 12 PPTs. I just sent my 12th PPT, like, 20 minutes ago. I took a shower then here I am, writing. I've been sleeping at 3 AM twice because I wanted to finish 2 lessons in one night AND I was using my shitty laptop that lags and freezes all the freaking time! But speaking of laptop, I got a new laptop today and I'm using it right now to write this post! Yay! 

  It's HP as you can see!

N E W U P D A T E S after a week! This post is mostly about Mochi :3 Because Mochi is life. Mochi is love =) It just annoys me that he keeps scratching the seat cover but other than that I have no complaints whatsoever! Right now Mochi is under my chair and playing with my foot. He is such a clingy cat and it's one of the reasons why I love him <3 He follows us whenever we go inside the room! I sometimes wake up and find him sleeping beside me :) 

Here are random photos of him!

I'm back after a week~ Yay! Today's Friday and tomorrow's my day off because (I think) it's the midterm test of the students for all their Vietnamese subjects. The midterm for English subjects is in October so I have to make 2 test papers for my Literature and Speaking class. 

I love wearing my uniform cus it's pink! =) I sometimes don't like smiling in front of the camera cus my eyebags tend to be very visible hehehehe :p

Everything in the city is quite near now since Ted and I already moved to a new house. So Sunday last week we decided to have a mini tour. Well the first plan was to go to Diamond Plaza.

We planned to look at some cheap laptops cus I want to buy one when I get paid but unfortunately, the only thing they sell in their electronic section is iPhones lol we were very disappointed. We ended up at the shoe section. I'm eyeing at this white Adidas shoes that has pink pastel stripes and purple "Adidas" logo but I'm not gonna buy it anytime soon (insert crying emoticon here lol)

Ted had jajangmyeon for lunch! I had chicken fried rice cus I love rice!

Hello everybody! I'm back to blogging again after a week! Nothing much happened at work except I already got and wore my uniform today! =) My blue skirt is a bit loose for me and Ted said I look like a student and not a teacher lol. On Monday and Wednesday I'm gona wear the light pink blouse and TTH is the dark pink. I now finally look like a legit teacher. I still wear my brown shoes because I get blisters with my new black shoes =/ I feel like I'm a badass with that while all teachers wear black shoes :p


The clothes look a bit creepy :D My mom asked me to take a photo of myself while wearing my uniform but I'm too lazy to wear it again so I just took this photo. My mom said it fits me because I heart pink so much <3

I was on a short hiatus from blogging >_< I've been very busy as you all know =p But hey, I've got time now. 
I mentioned on my previous post that I was doing online work (making lessons on PPT). Yep, I still am :) Well not at the moment because we are still waiting for the client's feedback. We are done with the draft phase and the feedback is the edit phase. I think I also mentioned that my Pinay friend recruited me to join the PPT team but unfortunately Jea had to cut her and other members because "their lessons were not accepted by the clients", accdg to her :( My lessons are acceptable so Jea asked me to continue the work. Oh well.... I'm just waiting for the client's feedback because after the edit phase I am going to receive my payment and I need $$ so badly =/ Pay day is on the 1st of September and I really can't wait any longer! 

Anyway here are random photos I took weeks ago >< I have no time to take photos because I do the same thing everyday. Go to work > go home > make lessons on PPT > sleep > go to work > and the cycle goes on and on...
@ May's Coffee. I remember this was after I got the books from school to prepare for my demo class.

(56): I Got Hired!!

(56): I Got Hired!!

I am soooo freaking happy because I finally got a full time teaching job in one of the international schools here in Vietnam! =) I had a demo class yesterday and since the observer liked my teaching performance, I continued my 2nd and 3rd class =) Now I already have a permanent schedule from 1-4 PM every Monday to Saturday. I teach Literature and Speaking class. Well mostly Literature. My speaking class is just once a week every Saturday. But yes I'm finally a grade 9 teacher!!! ^-^

List of things I HAVE to do:

1. Get a work permit because the salary is higher when you have it. It's also okay if you don't have WP and I'm a bit satisfied with the currently salary I'm earning (I already calculated my salary for the month and guess what, it has six zeros LOL of course it's in Vietnamese dong) but I want to receive a higher salary. Who doesn't want anyway?? (now searching for the price of iP6+ haha) But getting WP is a long process and I need to ask more info about it so I will probably do that next month.

2. Teacher's uniform. The receptionist of the school said we have 3 uniforms so I need to befriend someone and borrow her uniforms so I can go to the tailor shop =p 

3. Have more clothes before I have my uniform. I've got limited amount of clothes >< I just borrowed the dress from my Filipino friend here in VN. Sucks to be me... Now what am I going to wear tomorrow ughh

4. Lesson plan and PPT lessons for my online work. I have been extremely busy that I can't blog properly anymore =/ My pinay friend asked me to work at VipKid to make and design lessons on PPT for elementary kids in China. And since I didn't have work yet that time, I agreed to do it. Now it's consuming almost all my time >< Now it's taking a toll on me because sometimes I feel dizzy/dizzy and hungry since I've no enough sleep >< 

(55): Say you'll never let me go

(55): Say you'll never let me go


Holy shiz I saved these photos in my draft last week and I forgot to blog about it >.< Now I forgot what happened lol. Well, the photos helped me remember but still.... 

I just gotta share some photos from last week! I actually have a lot to blog at the moment (just consider this as an old post) but lemme do this one first.

@ Lotteria. Ted bought a new gaming mouse and I'm currently using it.

This is going to be a different post today. I want to tell a story on how some dickhead and lowlife people tried to scam me.

Last week I got an email from "Cempaka Schools" in Malaysia saying that they are looking for experienced ESL teachers who will teach in their school starting next month. The email came from Mrs. Puan Aimi Masdiana, the principal of the school. I attached my cover letter and CV and sent them an email. 1 or 2 days letter, I got another email saying that they have received my job application. After that, they asked me to answer an online interview. It was 2 pages long. I know they just copied the questions from the internet. I ignored the doubts in my head and sent them my answers. I was actually nott super serious with my answers because I know I won't get hired. But 2 days later, they HIRED me! They even sent me an employment contract agreement and offer letter. And it looks LEGIT!!!

Here are the screenshots of their email:

And they are using translator to convert from Malay to English. It's their excuse not to have a one-on-one interview on Skype.

(53): How long will it take for you to to realize that you are nothing?

'cause I've been watching closely, and you just wouldn't show your face

HEELLPPPP!!! Internet thieves are everywhere!!
Nope. Not saying this because someone stole my photos. I am not famous and pretty for that lol. I am writing this because I remembered the TV show Catfish. I watched some episodes and until now I still don't understand why people do that :< "Catfish" is a person who creates fake personal profiles on social media sites using someone else's pictures and false biographical information to pretend to be someone other than themselves (wikipedia). Some people use correct information about themselves BUT upload different picture i.e photo of a gorgeous and not that famous woman so people won't notice that they are pretenders. WHY DO THAT? DON'T YOU HAVE A FACE?? Embrace what God has given you. Geez. It's better to edit your photos using Photoshop than steal photos of others just because (you think) you're not that pretty. Why deceive people? I feel extremely bad for others who compliments your "fake" pictures on Facebook. They've been cheated!! lol

It's freaking hot in Vietnam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >___< I am really dark right now T-T I don't think my parents would be able to recognize me when they see me LOL exaggerated much =p But seriously, my face, arms, and feet got darker T-T I don't think sunscreen lotion would help >< 

Got some news I gotta share :3 I had my demo teaching + interview yesterday (22 July and yesterday marked my first month in Vietnam! Yayyy)and it was amazeballs! It was a new experience for me. The Vietnamese little kids are so cute and I was impressed with their English skills. So first things first, I arrived at the school around 8:50 AM. I filled up a form and the Vietnamese teacher guided me on my way up to the classrooms. When I went in, the kids together with the Vietnamese teacher were singing English songs about superheroes. And since their topic was about superheroes, they printed photos of Batman, Superman, Spiderman,and The Hulk. After a good 10 minutes of singing, the teacher invited me to sit beside the kids and my nerve-wracking demo teaching started :p
I introduced myself. I wrote my name on the board and I asked my students to repeat my name. I asked their names one by one. Some of them talked, some didn't. Not sure if they were shy or what. I guess they are Nursery students. And there's this cute little girl beside me who kept on calling me "teacher" :) It's very fulfilling when they call you "teacher". You know that "I-want-to-have-kids-but-they-are-difficult-to-handle" feeling? Yep, that's what I felt yesterday. Back to the teaching, I introduced 4 superheroes and asked them who they wanted to be. One kid was like, "Teacher! Teacher! I want to be Superman!" and the other one said "Teacher, I want to be Batman!" and it started to get noisy again but it's fun! :) I was just a bit intimidated with 2 or 3 Vietnamese assistant teachers inside the classroom but all good cus I had fun and the students had more fun which is a good thing!
I was interviewed by the Head Teacher I guess? She told me that my demo teaching was okay and my voice and explanation were clear for students to understand. She gave me tips and ideas on how to control the class. I think I got the job?? I don't know because that school is not hiring teachers because according to her, they're already full BUT the other (same) school in District 3 is looking for teachers and that's where I think she's gonna place me. She just needs to talk to the manager about it and they'll email me. The thing is, I don't and can't work outside District 7 because first, I don't know how to drive motorbike; second, other districts like District 1 & 3 are far from here; third, most classes in kindergarten start at 7 or 8.30 AM so traveling from D7 to another will take time. I'm not being picky or anything but why should I need to apply in other districts when there's tons of kindergarten and language schools here in my district? Do you see the logic there? lol

Anyway, here are some photos I took few days ago! :)

Went to Lotteria in Lotte Mart on Tuesday!

Hey hey hey! Was quite busy the past few days but thank God for Sundays! :3 Not sure where to start with my post for today but I'll let the photos do the talking.

Ted and I met up with our Vietnamese friend Van. That's her in the middle of the picture in front of Ben Thanh Market. Everything looks pretty in Saigon at night.



And I finally know the way going to D1 from our place! Yayyy :) I am Ted's map :) I always tell him to drive slowly, to be careful, and warn him sometimes when he drives fast. Glad we are still in one piece :p I still need to learn how to drive motorbike ugh THE STRUGGLE IS REAL =/ Ted once taught me how to drive but ended up arguing lol

15th July

So yeah we met up with Van. We ate in an Italian restaurant in Bui Vien st. before drinking.


Ted told Van that Coke tastes better when you put lemon inside. She tried it and was amazed how lemon did wonders to the taste of the Coke =p I didn't try it cus I like the original taste better lol
