Teacher's Corner • Balance between work and home

Like every other profession, teaching demands a lot of time and energy. But, unlike other jobs, a teacher has to report to the school during the early hours of the day. This leads to rushing through every task and a morning full of hustle bustle.

The condition is more severe for all the female teachers with a family. They have to look after their kids, prepare food, get ready and rush for school. This work pressure leads to stress and irritation.

There are people like me who cannot handle work pressure easily. I get easily pissed off and remain agitated until all the things fall into place. The morning rush hours stress my life to a great extent.

What about other teachers out there? How successful are you in maintaining a balance between personal and professional responsibilities? Please share your biggest challenge in doing so.

Things to do in Thailand • Our experience in the floating market

It was a long travel to get to the river bank where the small motorized boats are waiting to bring us to the so called floating market. The place is a river with many channels that end in a bigger expanse where boats are parked. Those boats are selling food stuff and other items. It’s just like a flea market but on the boat. And you have to be on the boat to buy. There is also food to be cooked right on the boat. It’s one good experience that you should not miss on your first trip to Thailand.

How much do Things Cost ? • Almost everything is cheap

From transportation to food, everything is almost cheap in Thailand. With $5 in your pocket, it can buy you food for the whole day including fruits for dessert. Taxi is also cheap although it's not easy to find one. At night, we indulge in the luxury of a massage for only $5. And in going to places like the zoo, it is best to arrange a trip with the tour guide to be on the safe side. The cost is minimal and truly affordable for tourists. In buying things for bringing home, clothes are of high quality but with low price tags that usually are on a buy-on-take-one deal. Check the street market for clothes and accessories.

Southeast Asia • What to see in Jakarta, Indonesia

We are going to Jakarta on August 21, that's on Monday already and until now we still don't have an itinerary. This is our first trip to Indonesia and we don't want to avail of a tour guide because we are used to roaming the place by ourselves. Our main concern is the food, what to eat. Second is the place, where to go that we will enjoy. No beach, we don't prefer swimming. Our plan is a city tour like museums, temples, markets, and shopping centers. Also, what nice souvenirs to buy for giving to friends. Thanks to those who would respond. I would greatly appreciate your suggestions.

Things to do in Thailand • The temples for a cultural experience

Don't miss the Buddhist temples for a cultural experience. Yeah, Buddhism is the major religion of the Thais such that I see it as more of a cultural influence than a religious one. Maybe their religion is the primary reason why Thais are meek and mild aside from the trait of being trustworthy. I have heard that being a monk for a time is the aspiration of Thais which is similar to the Hajj of Muslims. Even the women enter the monastery for a retreat of a week or two to experience the life of a monk.

General Discussion • Main attractions of Thailand

When vacation is mentioned, Thailand is first in our list because compared with other countries, Thailand has many advantages. First is the cost which is cheaper than in other Asian countries. Next is the food, especially the fresh fruits and vegetables which are of high quality. Then the people, they are very courteous that I think is because of their religion. Thais are mostly Buddhists with more than 90% of the population. With the places, oh, we need a longer list for that. But for starters, the temples are the best for getting to be familiar with the country. And don't miss the zoo particularly the elephants that surely you would enjoy.

General Discussion • Cheapest and safest mode of transport

As a tourist what is the cheapest mode of transport available in Thailand. In addition to the cost factor, it should be safe as well as easily accessible. Booking a cab every time is really expensive and can be a big burden on the holiday expense.

Whenever I go on any vacation, I prefer to cut down the travelling expense so that I can explore the maximum number of places. So what is the most economical means of traveling in Thailand, both locally and across the states.
