parts made in KL,assembled in SITIAWAN

“i’m from SITIAWAN,Perak”

that’s what i answer whenever people in college ask me about where i was from.did you know i was born in KL?yeah.in fact,i only moved to sitiawan when i was roughly 3 years old.i thought that the fact that i was born in KL does not make me an original Sitiawan product,but i feel that this small,humble town made me into what i am today.

naval base

this is what got me into sitiawan in the first place:the naval base.haha.i can’t offer any pictures beyond the gate.very mafan .you need to leave your IC and particulars at the gate.then as you exit they will check what’s inside your car boot.gosh.very troublesome.anyway,my dad got transferred to the navall base in lumut.that’s why we moved and settled down in sitiawan.

house

yeah.this is my first house.i got a shock when i came to take a photograph of it.it is not like when i lived in it.there used to be a lawn,a place where i could play all day,and pots of flowers which my mum made me water every day.now,it looks like a joint for drug addicts.gosh.what was left of that beautiful  home is the white house.

house1

i can’t find any full frontal pictures of my house.hahahaha.as you can see,it was much more beautiful last time.

house2

i still can’t make the same face since this photo was taken.hahahaha.yeah.i had the furniture since then.so damn troublesome to keep.DON’T buy these types of furniture.you’ll regret it and your children will hate you for buying them!

house3

this is my first birthday party in sitiawan!hahaha.my 7th birthday.merdeka cake.wtf.hahahaha.did you know my previous birthdays were held at my grandma’s house in hulu langat,kl?!it means that whenever its time for my birthday,we had to drive all the way to KL in my ancient taufu-lou honda accord just to throw a party.hahaha.mum got fed up and organised it in sitiawan on my 7th birthday.

road

i OWNED this stretch of road!haha.i remembered riding my blue bicycle as fast as i can.hahaha.there used to be lots of trees.my first fall on my bike was under a tree  but i can’t remember where as most of the big trees were chopped off.hmmm

shop

i bought peanut butter biscuits (my favourite at that time…tak tahu pun oreos existed) at this shop.hahaha.i had my first siu mai,lou ma kai,fishballs,charsiew pau and stuff you find at coffeeshops in a silver steam cabinet.not here la but at the coffeeshop next door.here is where i spent whatever coins i could find at numerous tikam machines.hahaha.and and and the owner of the shop has a pretty niece who taught me at kuok ming school.hahaha.i went there in the afternoons to study chinese.hahaha.i used to be able to read and write chinese but now i’m hopeless.yeah.back to the niece.i always looked forward to her lessons.she taught me moral during my first year and maths during my second year.yeah.mondays,wednesdays,fridays.those were the days she would teach my class.once i hitched a ride home with her,i  was silent the whole trip.ahahaha.and she asked me why i was quiet.muahahahaha.kuok ming school.yeah.i broke some furniture that belong to this man who actually has a house in the school compound.and as what true boys do at that age,i ran!he didn’t claim for the damages but he did glared at me whenever i’m nearby.gosh.sorry old man!

court

a basketball court RIGHT in front of my house.if only i stayed there till now,i might grow taller or become better in basketball.hmmmmmm.sadly,that’s not the case.i moved  into my current sitiawan house when i was 8.fast forward 11 years,i now have a japanese neighbour,a hairdressing neighbour and some vietname neighbours!hahaha.there’s so many movement in and out of the house every night.hahahahahahaha.some of them are sexy you know.

tadikalinden

this small building played a huge role in my life……

tadikalinden2

tadika linden!!!hahaha.did you know most of my friends went here for kindergarten?yeah.i have a tendency to remember all my firsts.i was cheated by my mum to go to kindergarten.i thought that my mum bought me a cool new red shirt and white shorts to wear for outings and such.then she told me to wear it and took me to tadika and left me on my own after 2 hours.as soon as i reached home i cried.i hated it so much.hahaha.i wonder if miss chan and mrs jeba are still there teaching young brats like me?hmmmmmm.

hall0

yes people,this is my primary school.we all fit into that building;standard one to standard six.hahahahaha.this is my school’s hall.KECERMELANGAN MATLAMAT KAMI!what a catchy slogan.

hall1

my primary school is located just beside my secondary school,separated by a wire fence.on saturdays,the hall will be filled by taikwondo students.ahhahaha.teacher’s day celebrations are held here and so does the many episodes in which tuantynn avoids tizebin.hahaha.did you know that tizebin has a crush on tuantynn?and tuantynn would avoid him when he crosses her line of sight?gosh.epic man.hahahaha

hall2

they said the hall is haunted.you can hear the piano playing by itself at nights,they claim.i haven’t heard it so far.

hauntedclass

that is the scariest classroom ever.just going up the stairs gives me the chill.gosh.i don’t even know what’s inside.to those who went in,let me know ya.

haunted1

this is where the japanese prisoners dig their own grave.and we were running around the field every single day.gosh.this is another rumour someone told me.hahaha.

toilet

the toilet.it looks disgusting.frankly,which school toilet doesn’t?however………….

insidetoilet

it looks damn decent for a school toilet.

field

the basketball court actually served as a tapak perhimpunan.and as prefects,our weekly spot check during assembly was to see if students wash their shoes or not.wtf.hahahaha.prefects got nothing else better to do.actually,i was a librarian for 2 years before becoming a prefect.cool huh.hahaha.special shoutout to ramanan here!he was my first friend in primary school.hahaha.i also had my first discipline case in primary school.i “extorted” money from tizebin.hahahaha.we had a bet about whether ultraman would air later in the day during a tuition class.i was thinking “gosh,easy rm1 for me”.so the next day when i went and claimed my prize,he reported to the headmistress.wtf.over rm1 i got a discipline case.hahahaha.small kids those days…sigh.

peepee

small kids these days!!!hahaha.they have no shame at all.if you can see clearly,there’s a taikwondo student peeing behind the bush.hahahaha.he’s so unlucky i was there to take photos.ahahahahaha.

pkm

the owner of this shop is one of mankind’s greatest contributors:his greatest contribution to the world is none other than IVY HAR.ahahahahaha.mr har,you are one good man that shall be remembered by me!hehehe.his 2nd greatest contribution to the world is the fact that he sold me a PC.by selling the PC,he gave me access to the internet.thus the birth of my blog.if it wasn’t for him,you wouldn’t be reading this post at all.

curryhouse

home curry house!if there’s a restaurant i would frequent for every meal for a whole month or two,it’s got to be this kick-ass joint.ok,maybe the food is not that great but its definitely convenient.i used to walk under the scorching heat with ang on days our mums got too lazy to cook.now we drive as we are too lazy.hahaha.super gay since last time.

nnewspaper

this is the place to get both NST and the star after 11am.during school holidays when there was no newspaper from school,i used to cycle all the way to this joint.hahahaha.why 11am?that’s because i usually wake up at 10-ish.by then its way too late to get english newspapers at stands near my house.so,what has to be done must be done.i have to get them newspapers!

 capri

capri.hahahaha.this is my most favourite place to eat.fine,maybe fullpann has better food.fine,fullpann has air con.fine,fullpann has no moaquitoes.but i really really like capri.maybe its the atmosphere.hmmmm.i should stop thinking about it.i’m already drooling.

cinema

hehe.sitiawan’s local cinema.it’s kinda an amazing building if you had witness it transform from a rundown building to one of sitiawan’s money-milkers.yeah.this building has a rich history.countless tamil movies have been screened here,countless (actually there weren’t many)chairs thrown within the screening halls and countless pink tickets sold by the old chinese ladies at the counter.yeah.i wonder what happened to the old aunty.

thestore

i give you sitiawan’s main shopping hub:THE STORE!!!hahaha.yeah.sorry about the poor picture.its kinda dangerous to take a picture while driving.bolehlah,the picture is kinda decent.anyway,here is where samuel gets most of its clothes (this line is referred to his friends who were/still studying with him at the UK).hehe.yogurt here is very fresh,unlike what some people claim.anyway,its still going strong despite competition from billion,ceria,econsave and giant.that might soon change with jusco being proposed to open a branch just opposite to giant.hehe.finally,a well known branch of deparmental store since parkson.hohoho.

thursdaymarket

this is where you find a lot of people on a thursday afternoon:the thursday market.i used to think that the thursday market was on a grand scale until i came to KL and witness connaught night market.if thursday market is a proton then connaught pasar malam is a mercedes.hahahaha.i opt to describe connaught pasar malam as a mercedes as i’ve heard there’s a bigger pasar malam somewhere in KL.hehe.anyway,this place evokes many memories.the most significant one was when i went there on ang’s motorbike without a helmet and was caught by my mum.as a result,my license classes were DELAYED.i was furious and so was she.hahahaha.the worst part is she sent an sms to ian’s phone informing me that she was going to delay my license classes.how embarassing was that!!!apa mau buat?i didn’t own a handphone at that time.and when i thought i owned one during post PMR,it was stolen at Lost World of Tambun.damn!!!!

lookinggood

this is what could be a specialists center in the future.the doctors that might run this place is daryl yeak,ian goh,ling j-cyn,samuel ding and maybe a few dentists.hahaha.manjung parade!!sitiawan’s most tak laku punya building.yeah.it once housed lookinggood,a supermarket.it was not a nice place to shop.i only remembered it as there was an A&W outlet.if there’s one reason to force me to lookinggood its A&W.then it was institut tech,a tuition center where the air-con was freaking cold.there was a store selling pokemon cards too there.there was also a gym.that is until the building housed a snooker center.hehehe.

facial

C&E beauty house.I STRONGLY URGE YOU PEOPLE OUT THERE TO NOT TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS WITH YOUR PHONE WHILE DRIVING!!!!!hahaha.its dangerous and your photos don’t come out that good.anyway,i now have to start looking for a facial shop nearby my house here in KL as i don’t think i will go there for facials in the future.i will really miss the relaxing face massages and the countless advice to drink more water from the aunties.hahahaha.

tucky

haha.red light at the traffic light.its ok to take a shot.if there’s a notion to eat chicken rice then i would gladly drive all the way to restoran tucky.hahaha.

 P8140428

this is by far the most important building in sitiawan:SMK Methodist (ACS) Sitiawan.no,EST 1903 does not mean there are 1903 students who got an A1 in English for Science and Technology (EST).in fact,we did so badly for EST until the school opt not to offer the subject anymore.EST in this case means ESTablished.hahaha.so basically my school is 106 years old this year.cool huh?

classblock

this is my class block from form 1 to form 4.it used to be in white but it has now transformed into a butter/balai polis/mr bean school.why yellow dr ashleigh?haha.i used to walk slowly along this road after school so that two girls will shout “BYE BYE SACHIN!” if they are still there.well,i only wanted to hear it from ONE of the girls.the other one just kacau!hehe.but after 2 weeks they got bored of saying bye-bye to me.sigh.anyway,my class would be at the front end of the block except in form 1 where i was in 1A3.hahaha.the class was so much fun.

canteen

the canteen:where we escape to after hours of studying (more like daydreaming,sleeping,reading newspaper,buat bissing,gossiping).i will always remember fear factor uncle who has left school after the class of 2007.mingsern used to be his usual customer until 2005 or sometime then.i think he did not like his ‘happy meal’.in fact,many didnt like the free gifts that came with his ‘happy meal’.they went and lodged numerous complaints because they found cockroaches,flies,lizard’s tail (nice wat the cintan mee,sup ekor wert).once,ang found a rubber band in his fried sotong.WTF.hahaha.i would always go for indian nasi lemak.then i will tambah fried egg,chicken,sambal telur (the sambal of the sambal telur way way way better than the normal sambal).at times i will get sirap cincau to drink.hahaha.if i were to drink it on a daily basis sure i’ll get diabetes.anyway,the quality of the sambal has deteriorated since i left.the highly addictive chicken nuggets there are now sold by mr burong’s wife:5 for rm2.damn.last time the chinese aunty sold 3 for rm1.maybe yihan got discount or something because he’s always seen hitting on taliking to the aunty.hmmm.maybe yihan got discount from the indian stall instead since he’ll go for his customary 2nd round of kueyteow with cucur smothered in sambal.hahahahahaha.i will also remember air suam kurang manis and teh tarik kurang manis tambah susu.WTF again.

pole

the forbidden pole.you are not allowed to touch the shown pole.its contaminated with chiaching’s booger!

court

basketball court.recently it has been resurfaced and the backboard was replaced.i had many memories at this court.i joined the closed competition first with NUMB (hahaha…we were easily distinguished with our football jersey tops) and then with CDMC Avengers!hahaha.we were the worst team ever.we lost all 7 of our matches.i did end up as the team’s top scorer.oh ya,i broke a flower pot in frustation as well.hahaha.sachin the vandal!!!!

tennis

our school has a tennis court.cool huh?

hall

library.guess which one of them is my sister.hahahaha.

men's

guys’ toilet.only open whenever the janitor feels like opening.it is the newer one.

men's2

guys’ common toilet.always open.hahaha.so dirty.you can find cigarette boxes in the flush tanks.once during a spot check,i found poop in the tank.how it got there remains a disgusting mystery.gosh.it’s so high up.how on earth did that guy pull off an upper decker?

ladies'

ladies’ toilet.it smells worse than the guys’ toilet.i kid you not.

IMG_0002

this is my form 2 class photo.somehow my face is scratched off.aiyo.haha.i had misplaced my form 1 class photo.

IMG_0001

form 3 photo.one of mums’ worst nightmares:their sakai sons in white pants!hahaha.my mum had a super hard time cleaning my pants as they get dirty way too easily.hahahaha.

IMG_0004

form 4 class photo.it would have been so much better if there are a few people from 4Sc2 were to be in 4Sc1 and melissa would just vanish from the face of the earth.i had a torrid time in form 4 being teased.aiyo!

P10006241

form 5 class.best class ever!hahaha.

class1

this is where i sit:at the side of a window.it’s seriously an ideal place to sit because……..

class2

i can actually see more of the class.my class used to be in white.its so much darker now.if my class was pink 2 years ago surely i cannot really see *ehem*….i’ll stop here.you guys must not know what and who i always see in class.hahahaha.

class3

the arrow points to where clarence and another fella will flirt with kuanpeihuang.hahaha.samuel,please don’t leave nasty comments about her or her sister later ok?hahaha.you can seriously look at the pretty girls who pass by.hahaha.

did you know i have 49 crushes in school?hahaha.i kept score ok but mostly they are mini crushes.full crushes are rare and few in between.and only a few of those full crushes actually developed into something more (i mean my feelings,not our relationships).hahaha.out of 49,2 of them are 1 year younger;3 are 1 year elder,5 are 2 years elder,4 are 3 years elder,and the rest are all of the same age.however,of the few that i will certainly remember for the rest of my life………

yiwen_pudubreak[1]

i will always remember ling yiwen.she was my FIRST high school crush.ahahahahaha.chiaching,alan must be going wtf wtf wtf.hahahaha.yeah.so what.i had a crush on her until i knew of changyung’s existence.hahaha.its really a sad way to know somebody exist because he got through to your crush’s heart.hahaha.its ok though.my next (full) crush was way hotter than her.ahahahahahahaha.

i will remember the crap we talked and did in school.hahaha.there will always be a poll created by snow whitetigress about who is the most handsome in class,or who is the manliest in class.i never got the highest rating before (which is 1) from anybody in class.hahaha.then samuel who clearly is incensed because he didn’t get the highest rating would condemn the act,saying that chianwoon and the girls are wuliao.hahaha.i’ll be singing along with him because i’m also a tad bit disappointed because i didn’t get no 1.ahahahaha.it really serves as an ego-booster if you get a very high rating.muahahahahahahaha.

i will always remember the scout camps in school and what fun can the presence of a few motorcycles can bring.romp-it outings were memorable especially during ang’s birthday.hahaha.just so that i won’t forget,i was the director of pillion riders.i have no idea what the positions are for.all i know i was riding pillion.favoured destined rider will always be ian goh,director of safe riding.i’m almost certain my life is at great hands whenever i ride pillion on his blue lagenda.hahaha.i also remember the time when chiaching took jacob’s motorbike and rode with the others for makan.then he met an accident at the crystal hotel traffic light.the first thing he did after he got up is to see whether his tapau-ed milo was spilled or not instead of inspecting the damage done on jacob’s motor.jacob never let anyone borrow his bike again…………

the reason i’m writing this post is that i’m leaving for india for the next 2 years.by the time i’m back i won’t return to sitiawan as my mum finally shifts to KL.it is a very disheartening situation you know.i grew up in a small humble town and watch it develop alongside me.there was no 7-11 before i took my PMR.now there are 4 outlets.people from sitiawan would eat mcdonald’s whenever they travel outstation.now they eat something else because they got sien of eating mcdonalds since there’s a mcd outlet here.i use to pity those lala mui-s of simpang tiga who dress up nicely to go shop at econsave but soon they can dress up to go to jusco in another few years time.

i’ll miss you sitiawan.you gave me kongpiang,late night nasi lemak,fresh seafood.but most importantly,you gave me the best memories and the time of my life.

lanternbatman

this was the most recent outing:my farewell party.it is the most gut-wrenching outing so far.hahaha.justin got me this batman lantern.this is the best lantern ever.when i was forced to make a speech before i cut my cake,i almost cried and winnie was recording it.hahaha.it would be so not macho if i did cry.anyway,i got hanshin to feed me the cake.hahahaha.

the memories are there because of you guys.you people are pieces of a puzzle.if a few pieces are missing then the puzzle would not be complete and you will not see the full picture as the pieces could not be replaced.you are pieces that i would like to keep forever.sounds familiar right yvonne?i copied and edited your sms.hahahaha.you guys mean the world to me.i will miss you guys a lot.i’ll miss HER more though.ahahahahaha.

i started blogging because it was a trend back then but now i trully realised what the purpose of blogging is for:it serves to a be a reminder of the joys and treasured memories you’ve accumulated throughout the years and the happiness is shared to those who mean the most to you.i will update my blog more when i get there so you guys would know what is going on there.someday,i will return to sitiawan.the only problem is i have no place to stay.ang budget hotel and recreation centre:your favourite customer will be back.save a place for me will ya!

another chapter ends

hahaha.its been a long time since i’ve blogged.everyone kept asking me why i have not blogged.usually i’ll ignore them but when ivy har demanded that i update my blog (technically she just asked me why i didn’t blog),i have no choice but to comply.what ivy wants,ivy gets (well,most of her demands).

i’ve just finished my a-levels in june and we celebrated it with a barbeque at kah jun’s house

grp1

there’s something about barbeques that bring out the worst in me.i don’t like to bbq my stuff.i expect people to do it for me.if possible,i do not want to get my hands dirty.i don’t like bbq-ed chicken wings,i prefer drumsticks.however,chinese people like wings way better than drumsticks.damn!hahahaha.so,i hantam-ed the fried bihun (with a generous amount of siu yuk) and bbq-ed some sausages and fishballs.

increasingdarkness

here’s another intentional shot gone up in smoke thanks to chunhou (again!!!),weexian and azlan.damn!hahaha.it was supposed to be a shot of increasing darkness in skin tone.stupid people.hahahahha.

another chapter ends,a new one begins

the boy who underwent self-inflicted mental torture (again) and steps he took to dampen the effect

my mum trapped me at home every night.i have a curfew.sigh.my holidays are not going as well as i have planned.i only met some of my friends after a WEEK back in sitiawan.argh!stupid final exams in january!damn you!holidays lost its holiness when you spent majority of it studying

anyway,here’s what i did to relieve stress

i went bowling

bowling

haha.weijian,junbiao,jacob,tizebin and i went for bowling at our local bowling alley.it’s funny how they woke up early just to play bowling.however,it made lots of sense.early birds get rm2.50 a game.i went once and finished 2nd twice in 5 games.not bad eh!

i went for snooker

i went for snooker at SRC (Sitiawan Recreational Club).i didn’t know sitiawan actually has such a cool place.wow.after 17 years of living in sitiawan,i had never stepped in there before.when i did step in,it was for badminton and snooker.we actually have to get the balls from the bar.what do you know?you have to wear long pants and covered shoes to enter.haha.we are all in shorts and flip-flops (well,i was the only one with flip-flops…the rest were with slippers) so when we entered the bar,some old farts were making a ruckus.

old man1:wei….look at them…they are wearing slippers…cannot cannot!!!

oldman2:yeah yeah…they wearing shorts…what is this???

oldman3:don’t worry, they are here for the balls…they are playing snooker upstairs.

yeah old farts!we are going upstairs.why are you feeling violated?you’ve already violated it with the cigarettes and alcohol.just shut up and drink as well as smoke your way to a shorter life.

weijian

weijian in action.i suck at this game.i was practically ‘santa claus’.i was giving away points because of the many fouls i’ve made

score1

the score since the beginning and throughout the  first game…..

score21

the score at the end of the first game.ehehehe.not bad.anyway,i had a healthy lead of 16 during the second game (no kidding) but ended up with 0 at the end.i’m no good at this.

celebrated the winter solstice fesitval

tangyuan1

mmmmm.tangyuan in the making.haha.these dough will be rolled into balls and fed to me!!ahahahah.me!!! (i’m a greedy pig).

mumandaunty

it was supposed to be a family affair but my mum chased me out of the kitchen.the other lady is my neighbour/hairstylist.she asked me to show me my girlfriend’s picture.i told her i never had one.gosh.people think that when you study in KL you should get a girlfriend.it’s not easy when you’re vertically challenged ok!

anyway,legend has it that if you collect 7 balls,the sky will go dark and a magical dragon will appear before you and grant you 3 wishes.once granted,the 7 balls will be scattered across the world.what do you know?i have the 7 balls!!!

dragonball

the sky did turned dark alright,only for it to rain.no dragon.no wish granted.sigh.if i had three wishes they would be:

1. grow taller till my height reaches at least 180cm

2.have enough money for my education

3.for it to snow in malaysia during my birthday.ahahahahah

sadly;instead of getting three wishes granted,i became a mythbuster.sigh.

let a girl do whatever she wants with my hair using hair wax and temporary hair dyes

hair1

well,it was amazing that my hair could be transformed into something like this since it was short.good job shuwai.haha.why on earth did i sit at a table where i was the only guy at aoife’s birthday party?so i had to be kambing korban.at first when shuwai applied wax on my head it was kinda relaxing.from that point onwards i was wishing that she could apply wax/shampoo on my hair daily.that is until she pulled my hair to give it a spiky look.it was so painful.credit should be given to her though.my hair looks good at the back but not at the front (to me la….i felt i looked like hoe siang…no offense shuwai!!!).

spike

hehe.like i said,my hair was short and thin.after the spikes are made,you can clearly see my scalp.

hair2

my hair was like a KH project,sprayed in different colours.

ate roti canai milo

roticanaimilo

ahahaha.roti canai milo was interesting.i knew the existence from guangshi.she had it in klang.i never heard about it in sitiawan so i decided to give it a shot.haha.the result:sweet and must be eaten when its hot.or else it’ll  get stuck between your teeth.

got a present for christmas

present

haha.i got a present for christmas.it means that i’m a good boy.naughty children don’t get presents.just ask jueanne or ang.even jacob didn’t get one.hahahahha.

hahaha.by the way,i discovered that i get panic attacks easily.like when my dad didn’t reach home even when its past midnight (he usually reaches latest by 11pm),i panicked and imagined him being involved in an accident or worse.the problem of having an active imagination is that you can’t really control the thoughts in your head when a situation is given to you.so i need to be distracted from those horrid thoughts or being reassured and comforted.thank you shehulk!this means that my girlfriend must stay calm and reassure/comfort/distract me when i’m having a panic attack.i’m very good at scaring myself.hahaha.so,that requirement goes down with other BASIC qualities in the list to become a potential girlfriend of mine

  1. long hair (at least shoulder length)
  2. nice eyes
  3. witty
  4. talks in english most of the time
  5. can engage in intelligent conversation (i don’t want to talk crap most of the time)
  6. mature (so that it’ll rub off on me)

haha.any potential suitors?ehehehehe

look ma!i’m on TV!!!again!

haha.i just found out about something.

aaron ezekiel edwards was one of 12 people shortlisted in his college for nivea’s ultimate prom nite king!he’s the one that i told you about,jueanne.the indian guy in penang.there’s a slight resemblance to christiano ronaldo here.hmmmm

guess who??ahahaha.she’s a former student of ACS sitiawan as well.she told me to keep you guys guessing.

aiyo.how come they never came to my college.at least i could try to audition or something.haha.but then the producers will go, “sorry kid.the girls are going to wear heels.it means that they will look taller.we don’t want any tom cruise-katie holmes poses.”.and again i’ll be rejected because i’m short.

ahahaha.who needs to audition for the real thing when you have a blog?!!ahahaha.let me introduce to you the candidates for Mr Sitiawan!!!woot

 

jacob chew

haha.the youngest candidate in our list aged 17 and a few days.during his form 5 days,he was the object of desire of most upper 6 girls.he’s the school’s volleyball captain and a decent basketball player.                                                                                                             

girls should go for him because: he can keep an account for all your spendings and show you how much you splurge on shoes,make-up,handbags and your expenses since he’s studying accounts.

codename:McBoyish

 

ang chun keat

don’t be fooled by this girlish post,he is actually the manliest candidate in our list.with his big build and often angry facial expression,you might think he’s someone not to mess with.however,underneath the exterior lies a kind young man who deserves to be nominated

girls should choose him because: he won’t laugh at you if you’re scared of cats.that is because he is afraid of them too.ahahaha.girls can optimise his strength to carry their shopping bags.and yes,he makes a good domestic helper (he does the housework way better than most girls)

thilagaraaj arronan a/l mundraje

the second youngest candidate is aiming to be a chemical engineer.so far,he has some ‘chemistry’ with most girls that he interacts with.a gentle guy who packs a big punch (literally).although he’s has a few ‘spare tayar’-s,play a few rounds of badminton with him and you’ll see he has better court coverage than you.

girls should choose him because: he’s hairy.and all that hair is used to trap air for heat insulation.means you’ll feel warm when you cuddle up with him.haha.and he has a very good sense of humour.

ian goh hong siang

the most vertically challenged candidate in our list.i’m serious.haha.blessed in academics,this young man has lots of gadgets that he often gloats about.haha.he’s the school tennis captain and has the longest sideburns for a chinese friend of mine.

justin peter joseph

hermes:the messenger for the greek gods

My song is love
Love to the lovely song
And it goes on

You don’t have to be alone

Your heavy heart

Is made of stone

And it’s so hard to see you clearly

You don’t have to be on your own

You don’t have to be on your own

And I’m not gonna take it back

And I’m not gonna say I don’t know now

You’re a target that I’m aiming at

Take my message home

My song is love

My song is love, unknown

But I’m on fire for you, clearly

You don’t have to be on your own

You don’t have to be on your own

And I’m not gonna take it back

Oh I’m not gonna say I don’t know now

You’re a target that I’m aiming at

And I’m nothing on my own

Got to get that message home

And I’m not gonna stand and wait

Not gonna be there until it’s much too late

On a platform I’m gonna stand and say

That I’m nothing on my own

And I love you, please come home

And my song is love, is love unknown

And I’ve got to get that message home
 

 

 

 

the boy who asked a girl, “do you like coffee or milk???or do you like the stuff in between???”

i just had a conversation with a girl a few hours ago.she’s really very nice to talk to and i feel like throwing away my chemistry book (which made my holidays insignificant as i have to run through them daily for a few hours) away and just throw them away and chat the next hours away.from the few minutes we chatted,i’ve scratched disneyland from my list of potential honeymoon venues.haha.sometimes i do pity the girl that want to be with me (if there’s any).if you’re reading this,thank God she talked me out of disneyland.

anyway,we chatted about batman and catwoman (i brought that up) and some other stuff until she popped a question that NO ONE has ever thought about asking: so,how does it feel like being mixed???

wow.a good question.a question that i have the answer but since no one asked i never spilled.so,what does it really feel to be of mixed parentage???am i more ‘coffee’ or more ‘milk’??? (by the way,i hate milk).do i prefer being ‘milk’ or ‘coffee’???it really made a lasting impression and i find myself unable to sleep just thinking it through.so here i stand (more like sit) and blog about what i feel about being of mixed parentage.

the truth is,being mixed is really hard especially when one part of you is ‘coffee’ and another is ‘milk’.do you feel as if there are two types of blood flowing through your veins??? nope.i don’t feel that.haha.the blood’s the same,sweetie.anyway,as a kid,you tend to grow with expectations of continuing the family tradition.it’s something like the chinese (especially the ones on TV) where they want sons to carry on their family name/surname during the old times (i’m not sure whether it still happens or not in this modern area).well, when your dad has a big family and he didn’t really continue the family tradition,the relatives come and ask you questions that a kid should not have even considered giving it a thought. “khanecksha,bila besar nak kahwin cina ke india???”.a standard reply from a boy who does not know the difference between the races,”saya tak suka perempuan”.hehe.don’t be afraid girls,i like girls very much now.i’m not sure why after a certain period of time,they have never bothered me with this question.perhaps a intervention from my mum,the notorious Madam Jo???hehe.highly likely.you should not pollute a child’s mind with ideas on races.

in kindergarten,i never had problems making friends of another race.scratch that,we never had problems making friends of different races.my first friend was an indian guy named jeremy.i’m not sure where he is right now.my first girl friend was joanne ho.haha.i would like to talk to her someday since we never talked since like primary school??anyway,small children with unbiased minds in tadika linden are set to be the country’s leaders (hehehe…possible) until………

anyway,primary school was no different.i was running around (what do you expect a smaller version of me would do???) before i enter class with malay,indian and chinese kids.it was then i met chiaching,yuanwen,thomas,glenn foo’s tupperware (i wonder whether he uses tupperware in matriculation or not???i forgot to ask him the other day),yipork (he was big back in those days as well…glad you lost weight) and many others.i finally faced a difficult problem regarding my mixed parentage during a UPSR camp held in batu 10.since the malay students gathered every night for their own thing,the non-s had moral class.sadly,it was separated:the chinese go to the chinese class and the indians to another.oh my god.where should i go???technically,i was supposed to go to the indian class but i don’t understand tamil.i’m not going to waste my time sitting still in a corner while everybody else chat away happily.i don’t like being left out (during those days…hehe) so i went to the chinese class where chiaching and glenn was.who cares if i can’t understand chinese.i have TRANSLATORS.hahaha.chiaching even made fun of a chinese girl.if i’m not mistaken, her name was Cho Li Yuen or something.all i know was chiaching started shouting “COLI,COLI,COLI!!!!ahahahahahahaha”. we laughed (our gang) as well.i remembered chooiping was there.yipork was all over her during the camp.haha

remember the part where linden-ers were supposed to be the country’s leaders???we should have been until we entered secondary school.this is when our minds are biased.the chinese hang out with the chinese,the indians with the indians and the malays with the malays.fortunately for me,i can hang out with all races.sadly,the indians think i’m too indian;and the malays think i look like them but i’m totally not one of them.that is when i first experience one of the ugly sides a human being can potray.

despite my indian name,you would notice that i don’t have many indian friends.those who know me can practically name all of them.as i mentioned above,they think i’m too chinese for them or i don’t have enough indian qualities to be a part of their community.it’s really disheartening.i’ve made a few efforts to blend in but my efforts were to no avail.despite their friendly nature,i can feel like they’re judging me. “the only thing indian about him is his name.nothing else”. trying hard to be accepted by them was a complete waste of time.so,i stopped interacting with them and became ‘snobbish’ (in their opinion)

then,the constant questions that i dread.why can’t i speak tamil???why do i pay more attention in improving my chinese but never bothered to speak in tamil??why am i losing my indian heritage bit by bit???my extended relatives (eg.my dad’s cousins and their cousins) never failed to ask me or my dad about it ever since i got to KL.it’s so unfair.things didn’t really work out for me in those areas.my dad doesn’t speak to me in tamil.in fact,he only speaks in english and malay in public and even to his family.i didn’t go for tamil classes or had any friends who speak to me in tamil when i was young.i speak english the very minute i learned how to speak.gosh,i feel like telling this people off but then i have to be polite for my dad’s sake.he’ll lose face if his only son was rude to the elders over a question that was asked in a very polite manner.it hurts everytime they ask.

fortunately,i am blessed with people that don’t really care about it.yvonne,chiaching,glenn,daryl,just to name a few.even ian and weijian (despite the ‘siam kia’ calls) don’t really care about my mixed heritage.in fact,they enjoy touching on it.my indian friends are exceptional.they have never consider me as any less of an indian.to them,i just can’t speak tamil (which is true).i thank you arronan,ramanan and others.i do have malay friends.although they lack in numbers,they don’t lack in being good friends.my parents and my family helped out.they sometimes answer the dreaded questions for me.

being mixed is not all that bad.i get the best of both worlds.deepavali and chinese new year.who gets to do that every year?the food?ahahahah.one of the reasons why i was 40kg heavy when i was only in standard 4.i get to experience both cultures which again,many people didn’t get the chance to.i’ve met people like me (justin lembu,robinson,timothy james) who face the same problems but choose to enjoy the priveleges that we have.i’ve also met mixed people but of different races.most notable person is aoife noelle ngo ping hui (irish+chinese=chirish),of course.i enjoy looking at unsuspecting people’s faces when they find out i can speak chinese especially during basketball.first timers usually speak to me in malay (english when in college) during the game and when the ball is out and i said “wo men de qiu (our ball)”,they go “you know chinese???”.ahahahaha.

do i prefer being an indian???do i prefer to be chinese??

the answer is i prefer to be stuck in the middle,being myself.i don’t care whether they accept me into their community or not.i’ve realised that its a privelege for anyone (especially those who judge or question my identity) to know me.it may sound snobbish but it takes a snobbish person to know one.accept people for who they are.we are here for a reason and it’s definitely not being ostricised by you so called “pure beings”.

i remembered that you hated milk (yay) and i’ve never seen you drink coffee so i would rephrase my question that you didn’t give me an answer for,

“HOW WOULD YOU LIKE YOUR CHOCOLATE??? DARK OR WHITE??? OR SOMETHING IN BETWEEN???”

I

AM

JUST

ME!

ahahahahaha

the boy who got sleep deprived so that he can see his friends go in and out and wait for a bunch of old men to sign his certificate

Pentarafan Pengakap Raja 2008. this is the ultimate camp for teenage scouts. they have gained knowledge throughout their secondary school years (its more if they started since primary school) and are expected to apply all these skills in this camp. i passed last year. in order to pass my probation, i had to complete my service to the state. i went with justin who drove his “canggih” toyota corolla with ang as his co-driver and hoesiang to complete the fearful foursome. weijian and yipork (no kidding, weijian actually fetched a person!!!). justin’s car is “canggih” because he has many switches that controls the horn and stuff. we can even hear nitrous-oxide-purges IN the car. that’s because his brake pump ‘bocor’ so air can be pumped out. scary, huh??

“who here has the most ‘A’s in SPM???!!!”

justin and ang pointed at me. crap. i’m officially the ‘ketua pembantu’. it’s not really an honour to lead your fellow king scouts and other junior scouts in perak for this camp. given the ‘honour’ means you cannot sleep at night because you have to make sure everyone does their duty. furthermore if anything happens while the higher authorities sleep at night, i’m the first person to be screwed.

 however, being the leader means you can easily delegate all the hard work to other people whereby you just stand and watch them. if they screw up, you just screw them back.

ahahaha. see, i told you. it could have been me doing this.

scouts becoming grave diggers for cats or some other animals that might get killed. hehe. yipork leads the project.

ang showing off his manliness. haha. of course he has to show it. wanna know why? the object of his desire is here. let’s just call her 014. ang was freaking manly whenever she’s around. he can even dig a big hole that can bury winnie and j-cyn together all by himself. wow, i was amazed until zhongyang told me his ‘catalyst’ was there. ahahah.

you learn a lot of stuff by being a scout. seriously.

can any band/KRS/PBSM/St. John’s/ or other uniformed bodies come up with this? and this is not the elaborate type. we were told to keep things simple yet functional.

grasshopper spotted. it’s made of coconut leaves. i was shocked beyond belief. i showed this picture to choon hou. “aiya…fake one a?? cheh” . “i knoe its fake. can you do it???”. he went speechless. haha. scouts 1-0 st john’s. these scouts are really creative when it comes to craftworks.

it’s made only by string. its a  mug coaster. it’s made by 014. hehe.

this basket is made from silver-spray-painted paper. more pictures at ang’s blog. i wonder why they put so much effort in this. i only did a ‘tabung’ (piggy bank) from bamboo. i just made a hole and used marker pen to decorate it. because of me, ‘tabung’-s are banned this year. ahahaha.

i pitied ang. the prey was there to be hunted but the hunter seems, well, uninspired to hunt. weijian and justin gave him lots of advice. i could have given some if i was not busy being the leader. anyway, he had his moments with  her (albeit being 5 minutes or so). so, congartulations!!

 

 

 

ang roped in justin and weijian to drive out for food. hey, i wanna go. however, i’m supposed to stay in the camp. that’s because if anything comes up and i’m not there means i’m screwed beyond belief. that means they get to go out and sleep whereas i have to stay ‘indoors’ and stay awake. however, they did buy me vegetarian food from outside. they’re good friends, are they? but this incurred the wrath of hilir perak scouts. they complained to me and to some other people but i closed my eyes (and ears!!!).

they are tested on CPR. both firdaus and prashan failed. firdaus pressed on the stomach whereas prashan pressed on the heart. they are supposed to press on the sternum. i taught them many times but they seem to forget. good-lah. both failed.

 

i was forced to dance because those who didn’t dance need to clean the hall. hey, might as well learn something new that clean the dirty hall. ahahaha. however, certain scouts need to be screwed.

first aids kits? wtf. there are a few of these boxes. it’s appaling. if you don’t know english, don’t use it. it’s humiliating.

i’m done with my service. now i’m waiting for all the sultans to sign my king scout certificate. i hope that i can get the badge form the Perak sultan by the end of the year but then again, since when are VVIP punctual??
