A list of shocking, unnerving and funny things that I've come across this few days

GPK 1 said this in the assembly
En A: Kalau main sepak takraw tu, elok-elok... bagi lipat. Jangan asyik lipat net pulak

A student passing by in front of koperasi and peeking into the room. Thinking that he might need something, I asked him this:
Me: What are you looking for?
Student: I'm looking forward, teacher (sambil jalan menuju ke hadapan membiarkan daku terpinga-pinga)

A student complaining that he is hungry
Me: Why don't you go and buy something?
Student: My money tertinggal..... (long pause) in the bank, teacher.

A student who is in my debate team came straight to me with a cheeky smile
Student: Is it hot in here or is it just you?

Guano! It will be hard to stay stoic and keep a straight face with these kinds of joke...

My students sound funny even when they pronounce simple English/Malay words.
Heavy Bahasa Iban influence.
I laugh at them all the time with a straight face.

omg! that looking forward tu is genius!! haha

in my case my students diorg se-lowwww sikitla but they are funny without intending to be funny.

e.g me : ok what is a gardener?
student A dgn confidentnya menjawab "rotiiiii!!!!"

tell me how can u not laugh at that? haha miss u ana!
