First time I sent student for speech competition . Ally got a highly recommended award for age 11 story telling category.
I love public speaking. Speech competition is easier than singing competition cause everything is the same except you are not capable to go out of tune even if you try.
And I saw my old speech and drama teacher Ms Victoria Clancy ! I can’t believe it ! Haven’t seen Ms Clancy for 20 years and she still remembers Susie!

Have a new second half year resolution.
I figure that I really need to cut off my phone usage. Just too addicted to my phone . It’s not good for my eye sight and it’s just not a very efficient use of time.
Now I have a set time that I will allow myself to check on the phone.
I must say it’s quite a liberating feeling and you notice a lot more with the surroundings.
Not an easy task but I am trying my best.
Maybe you should check your phone less too? Hahaha
Alex basically looks exactly the same. I taught her since she was in Wenona School in year 9. She is now 22 and looking exactly the same as she was 16.
I always have old kids contacting me and I always take them to eat Din Tai Fong which is the national food of Taiwan. Kids who have been to din tai fong a few times with me I will then change to somewhere else.
This is Alex’s first time so I said to her let’s meet up after her work at city. Alex does coding. The cool journey of how she gets into coding is another fascinating story. She basically quits her psychology at University due to disappointment of tertiary education and teaches herself about coding. With all the networking opportunity she lands a very challenging job.
Sometimes we learn from the kids too. She is such an organic girl eating vegan, doing yoga and mediation and enjoys walks and nature. All those things I don’t even do that much at this age. She told me the quotes she likes from John Lennon that you plan first and then life happens to you.
The sense of calmness in such young lady is incredible.
I love these kids. I told all my kids that after you leave me you can contact me anytime I will make sure I take you to the best food in Sydney. I always love to see you kids growing up and be valuable citizen to the society. That’s my proud teacher moment.
Today is the first day of term 3 .
I honestly had a very good day. Everyone came in with a big smile. Everybody looked nice and fresh and some teenagers look taller and taller than me . Funny how even 2 weeks can make a huge difference when they are growing .
At the end of the day I do think learning happens when you are having fun. I don’t want anyone to feel dragging when they think of coming. And I hope everyone leaves with a smile and happier mood than before you coming in (of course when you have an exam or competition on and you are not doing your work then I will definitely make you suffer).
My work is very fun. Good to be back.
Landed in Sydney. First text was from my sister that she has an emergency could I please go to beauty point school to pick up her kids . I have never picked up any kids from anywhere in my life (even though I have taught hundreds of Beauty Point School students over the years) How does it work?Should I bring ID? Anyway I can’t find kids and my sister is panicking and I am nervous (this is their second day of new school) The kids were sent to the office. Finally drama ends and I am even more jet-lagged. #schoolpickups #stressedaunt #jetlaglife #mosmanmusic #mosmanliving #bestauntieaward #whyaretheywearingsomuch #接小孩真累 #澳洲小孩的書包怎麼這麼大 #backtoschool #littlekidsbigbags

大家叫我看完how do you design your life 那一本書以後要說書。其實那本有很多很多不同的concept and ideas 算是很硬的書說真的史丹佛大學 那些教授真的很厲害難怪這個名校最多人選修的課。這個東西我用直播講不完回Sydney 會把它分成好幾個podcast 用講的你開車或上廁所再聽吧。
不過三個activities you could try.
我們做一個五年計劃for three situations of yours. 本來就不是只有一個choice. 不用一定是工作不過先有一個choice.
1. 什麼是你最可能做的（might be something you do now but have a bit more plans and excited about.)
就比如說你是像我一樣的老師好了但是要開個店開個教不一樣的東西什麼東西有的沒的或是跟現在一樣也好。一年出國個幾次再買個房子or something like that ...反正就是the plan you already have in your mind if you have any.
會遇過什麼問題or concern 給自己如果要實施這個計劃
2第二個situation 是if the first plan for some reason can’t be done. What’s your alternate plan? 還能做什麼要想什麼辦法
會遇過什麼問題or concern 給自己如果要實施這個計劃
會遇過什麼問題or concern 給自己如果要實施這個計劃
Have a watch of the YouTube or his tedtalk, I shape my 2018 下半年的plan accordingly after watching this.
Do you have a good time diary?
I always constantly review and write new things on my good time diary.
What is a good time diary? It’s a diary that you record what makes you happy and passionate . What drives you crazy. It’s not just about hobbies it can also be related to work or life in general. You have more understanding of yourself and therefore shape your life to the things and activities that create more good time diary entry.
I have three things that if I do I will totally forget the time and emerge in it .
1. When I teach duets or good singers who has been with me for a long time with very strong technique already and have a very polish work to prepare and perform. I love seeing hard working good singers who already know their work well and my job is to bring it to the next level. Those working progress is challenging, higher level of artistry.
2 when I was doing Live engaging with audience about topics and discussions. I absolutely love Live engagements and interviews. Especially interview with a guest it challenges my brain to engage audience, interviewer and also continue to think about next conversation at the same time. It’s the most fun thing ever.
3. When I was doing public speaking competition or singing/talking front of audience. People like us just like spotlight and stage. We just do.
What are the things that drives you mental that you drag doing? Write it down and avoid it.
I don’t like teaching adult beginners piano. Total adult beginners are slow and I really don’t cope with slow. Haha it sounds bad and it’s true. I no longer teach beginner piano cause it just drags me....
Have a good time diary. You will always want to do more things you love.
亞州真的很厲害。我玩instagram 這麼久只是用來跟學生做做announcemen 的。人家真正的人用hashtag 專門做marketing 強的要命。原來hashtag 是這樣用的我的媽呀我覺得我們大家要跟時代一起進步. 我真的越來越像阿桑現代的東西都不知道.
Accidently came across this book and I was astonished how much strategy and technique involved on instagram these days.
For me at the moment Instagram is not much difference to Facebook . I don’t care about how much likes and how many fans I have. Even though mine is a business account I don’t seem to know much about it.
After reading this book I get on YouTube to research about algorithm of instagram and was soooo surprise to know how people take it seriously. All these time of posting, engagement, hashtags , content strategy etc.
However I must admit it’s always good to learn more. This is the modern trend of marketing and branding. The social media makes all business and individuals to be more equal these days.
I said to my friends, don’t just say you don’t get it, don’t understand it. Then you are really becoming an oldie.
Learn the new technology! The world is moving fast. Keep up with the innovation then it’s your decision either you use it or not.
I have such trouble adapting to this heat in Taiwan.
Skin problem, headache, heat stroke, eye problem etc...Haven’t been back to Taiwan in summer for such long time ....oh dear.
Let’s write about it another time.
Still caught up with friends and families and did lots of interesting things . Apart from the heat, Taiwan is paradise.
Wherever you have family and friends excitedly wait for you to be there, that is Home to me.
I have 10 foundation technique chapters that I wrote.
But every kid complained technique is boring and told me I should write a book and sell it. Kids I don’t need to sell anything Ok.
With the “boring” aspect I need to do something. Here is the solution.
Every lesson you pick one card with what you want to learn for 10 min technique.
(The back of the card is the solution I wrote. But they are in combination of English, Chinese and Japanese languages . It’s for me to know. You just need to turn on the voice record app and record it ok) .
Wrote all these in the cafes in Taiwan.
More to come.
