Bento #74

I was in a super sianz mood yesterday. When PMS meets eve of school reopening, you get a FIERY MONSTER. Sigh. After so many years in the work force, I just couldn't escape from the curse of the pre-school-reopening syndrome.

The "sianz" feeling spilled over to today. The only time I didn't feel sian was when I was making the bentos and when my last lesson for the day ended.

Anyway, the terriyaki chicken was overcooked and it became very tough, sianz...

The hard boiled eggs were too small for the mould and it didn't turn out very nicely,sianz...

80% of my students had never heard of Sun Yet Sen, or Sun Zhongshan, or 孙中山... sianz.

I am about to catch a flu. I am having a runny nose for the whole day, sianz.....!!!!!

OMG, really really? They don't know who he is? How can that even be possible?! They're JC students! Surely they'd have read about him in Sec 1 or 2 history? I'm really bad at China's history but at least I know Sun Yat Sen and Chiang Kai Shek from KMT. Are kids really this ignorant these days?
