Spotted something before class today! My student was reading 这一班!!!
Why am I so excited? 翁老师 was actually my Chinese teacher in primary school before he left for Tao Nan. The Principal with thick glasses was modelled after our then principal, Mr Cheng. Mr Cheng often prowled the corridors with his metre-long wooden ruler. Whoever was standing outside class (for punishment) would get a dose of the ruler. Yes, I belong to a generation where we took punishment in our stride, when naughty children braced themselves by wearing extra underwear. Er jie just told me that the female teacher is actually modelled after Liao Lao Shi!
After telling the student all these, he proceeded to remind me how old I was. Hahaha, oh how the years fly.
