Teaching is a noble profession.

Lai Chun Siong has been teaching in a Chinese Government School for a few years. I was lucky to have been introduced to him late last year. Very few young male graduates would pick to be a teacher, especially teaching in a Chinese Government School. Not like before, when a teacher was always highly respected wherever one goes. Today, most young job seekers prefer to venture into the corporate world where incentives and income are better.

Not Lai Chun Siong, who loves to be a teacher. By talking to him, I could feel the passion and interest he has over this noble profession. All his students were happy learning from him. The way the students behaved and communicated, I knew he must had taught them well. Lai knew his salary and benefits might not be tempting, comparing to his friends who worked outside. He gained his satisfaction out from teaching his students. Seeing and knowing the children grow makes him happy and delighted. I am so glad, we still have dedicated and committed teachers like Lai Chun Siong around. Without him and other serious teachers, our young will never have a chance to be properly educated. Our future depends on our youth and if our young were neglected, then our future might be uncertain and unsafe.

Lai, I certainly admire and proud to be your friend and also as your life insurance agent. You do your part to teach the students and I will play my role to assist you in your financial planning. You have the passion to guide the little one around you and I have the wisdom of life to strengthen your understanding of life. Every one on earth has a responsiblity to shoulder and I do hope we can help each other along the way.
