Then a teacher is a teacher. She’s a qualified teacher after acquiring a teacher training degree on top of her post graduation. But then she chose to teach in schools where our daughters went, and was the driver of our Ambassador car turned school bus.
She then became a much loved supply teacher in international schools in Philippines, HongKong and London where we were posted earning significant per diem pay.

One of them, secretary of British Women’s Association requested a demonstration for some 20 of their members. And 38 turned up at our residence. And thus started her Vegetable Carving classes. I am a beneficiary when she bought the Omega watch of the type James Bond wore, on my birthday with the money.
Once she got a call from the chef of a five star hotel wanting to be a student.
The best part was the vegetable flower soup after the classes.
