M’sian Teacher Receives Veggie Bouquet From Students On Teacher’s Day

Doesn't matter the price, it's the thought that counts.
Yesterday, May 16, Malaysia came together to celebrate Teacher’s Day, a special occasion dedicated to honouring and appreciating the hard work and dedication of teachers across the nation.

The celebration was marked by students presenting their teachers with various gifts, a gesture that symbolises gratitude and respect.

Teacher’s Day isn’t about how much the gifts cost, but the thought and effort behind them. This idea was perfectly shown in a viral TikTok video posted by Nur Sylvia Edan, a 30-year-old Bahasa Melayu teacher.

The video features her primary students from Sekolah Kebangsaan Pos Bersih in Slim River, Perak, giving her a unique bouquet of vegetables wrapped in lerek leaves.

These gifts, though modest, were rich in meaning and showcased the students’ creativity and thoughtfulness.

Despite their less privileged backgrounds, they still made an effort

Speaking to WeirdKaya, Sylvia shared her deep appreciation for the students’ gestures. She explained that in the past, teachers would often give students flower bouquets during various programs.

This time, the roles were reversed, with the students presenting the teachers with gifts wrapped in lerek leaves.

“I greatly appreciate my students’ gifts,” she said.

“I was very touched because they wanted to give us something just like we always give to them.”

Sylvia expressed her affection for her students, emphasising the significance of their efforts.

“Honestly, we didn’t expect anything because we know they come from less privileged backgrounds. But they still made an effort to give us something. We are very moved,” she added.
