These are some of the mugs I received. Guess which is my favourite? :)
PhotoHunt theme : Guess/ Your favourite mug or cup
As a teacher for many years, I am on the receiving end of many lovely and wonderful gifts for various occasions.
I appreciate every gift that my students and their parents gave me because their gifts were expressions of gratitude and that I make a positive difference in their lives.
Now 22 years later, the gifts that I still have and hold dear are piling high in a cupboard. I continue to keep in touch with many students through email and Facebook.
My favourite mug is from a young man from the Philippines. He was my student for 3 years. Getting a gift of appreciation from him was unexpected because he was extremely rebellious and we had so many fights. On the day he left Singapore, he came to see me. Quietly he placed a wrapped gift on my table and clumsily bade his farewell.
Unwrapping the gift, I discovered a letter he wrote thanking me for teaching him and making a difference in his life. I was so touched. The young man is now in Canada working on his PhD. :)
