The Glamorous Teacher

Photo source:  Malaysia Tatler 
If there is a person who deserves to be featured in a magazine it would be her, Yang Mulia Datin Dr. Raja Mazuin Bt. Raja Abdul Aziz; a senior lecturer in IPG Kampus Bahasa Antarabangsa, a loyal wife, an avid mother figure plus a fashionista in Kuala Lumpur. She has never grown older even in her fifties and in fact I believe that her life cycle runs backward that she is growing younger every other day. Perhaps it is her big personality and her humble appearance that preserve her beauty even though she is officially a granny already. 
Majalah Wanita, July 2012.
"I never really read the articles, as long as my photos are good then I am okay already", she told us after we saw the article of her in Majalah Harmoni two years ago. That was just her being her; funny, energetic and as an educationist she has all great ideas about our education system. "If I could change something to improve the current education system, I would allow lecturers with PhDs to teach primary schools because they are equipped with the know-how and techniques to teach young children through proper methods",(Malaysia Tatler, 2012). 

Social Studies Exhibition, 2009.
As a lecturer in IPG KBA, she has assisted many young educators in Malaysia especially in the Teaching of English as a Second Language (TESL) in Malaysia. I am very honoured to have been under her supervision for Social Studies course during my Foundation in TESL along with my own lecturer Madam Ann Anuradah because both lecturers are very knowledgeable with the subject. Many would say that she is strict especially on teaching practicum but all she wants is for these teachers to excel and that is how she equips them with the challenges in teaching profession. 
Dr. Raja Mazuin and  Rizal Sadiman
Yang Mulia Datin Dr. Raja Mazuin is easily approachable by students despite her status as a wife to Dato' Zaharudin Mohd Ali and that is her recipe of success. There is no need for her to put up a snob face in college even if she is a Datin, and that is seriously something that I need to learn from her. 
B. Ed TESL IPG KBA-UPM Farewell Party.
She is a really talented singer and dancer too because she inherited her talent from the blood of Negeri Sembilan royal family. I adore her for choosing teaching profession as a lifetime career and not anything else, and if there is anybody I would like to be one day then it would be her; a stylish English language teacher who is never tired of preaching our Malaysians about the importance of English in life. Some can call me perosak bahasa kebangsaan but I don't care anymore because my notion is noble which is to see more Malaysians acquiring the language. Now in less than 100 words, please write to me about the teacher or a lecturer who has influenced your life in making you a human being right now?

P/S: Read the article of Yang Mulia Datin Dr. Raja Mazuin on Malaysia Tatler and get July 2012 edition of Majalah Wanita to read more about her okay ;)

There is one lecturer that open my mind towards world of horticulture. She is Dr. Siti Hajar Ahmad. She has been a fearsome lecturer I heard since from my senior but yet, when I know her more, she is just a concern lecturer who want her students to do their best.

She has been here in UPM since Universiti Pertanian Malaysia were established from Kolej Pertanian.

Everyone who knows her closely will say that she is such a great lecturer which include me. Negative comments from senior does not effect me to make her as my Supervisor for final year project. I feel lucky to be selected by her.

Her way of editing my thesis really open my eyes that we need to be precise in what we doing. She always advice me to do it first and then ask her. She hates bluntly questions without any points.

Until now, I still contact her. She is one of the best lecturers Allah had sent for me.

R.T.W: hehe...she must be a very very senior lecturer in UPM with a lot of knowledgeable insights right? Well you are lucky to have had the opportunity to learn from her hehe

Sometimes a good lecturer is the one that is "garang"...but once we have pushed the right button then we will find a way to get close to that particular lecturer hehehe....

ABU: Yeap, sebab tu ramai orang selesa dgn beliau. Even masa mula-mula kenal dia pun I tak tau dia Datin dan berketurunan Diraja, sebab beliau sangat simple dan merendah diri hehehehe

Azham Vsvc said...

Orked: hehe...alhamdulillah syukur. Most of the lecturers in IPG KBA are very well equipped to teach us and that is something that I admire. Not many can teach another teacher to teach another soul hehehe

Insyallah, one day Cikgu Arbaiyah and CIkgu Fatma will see how well brought up you are hehehe

Kay: hehe....syukur alhamdulillah. Kau plak macam mana Kay, masa zaman belajar dulu?
