When I was young...

Continuing the tale...

*flash back*

I was young and stupid I am only stupid...

Throughout my life I had my fair share of infatuations, but his tale is about one infatuation that I took to the next level.

I was 12 years old...

Feelings I had for this girl. But this time, I gathered up my courage and told her how I felt. And what do you know, she felt the same way too. The feeling was ecstatic like how many of you would know.

Our 'so-called' relationship continued on for a period of time. However, at this very period of time, due to some circumstances, I formed a character hated by everyone. If I were to describe myself then, I would probably say I am a quiet stuck-up insensitive loner who is no different than a donkey's behind.

Well, my character then would best understood if I told you the outcome of it:
  • I became a social outcast.
  • I made more enemies than friends. Even my childhood friends wanted to slap me.
  • I had no friends during my freshman year of SMKDU, along with that I angered gangsters that wanted to slaughter me then.
  • When I was elected as the prefect's Discipline Officer for form 2, majority of the prefects of my age then wanted to quit as soon as they found out.
  • Etc.
Yes, that was my life then the dawn of the new millennium. How did I turn out to be that way? Well, I'm not going to go into details. But know this, it's all related to that relationship with that girl (I'm not blaming her in anyway, the fault is entirely mine).

After a year or so, we 'broke-up'. It was (kind-of) my first time experiencing it, the first cut to the heart is the deepest. A flood of sadness overwhelmed me at that time, that I made a vow, somewhat a promise to God that I won't have any relationship with any female for my 5 years in SMKDU, that I will focus on what is more important.

From than onwards, things began to change for the better, slowly but surely. I only began to make friends in form 2, by God's grace trying to right my wrongs.


Now then, what I want to share today, is about my 5 years vow. I still had my fair share of crushes and infatuation during these 5 years, however I never made any effort to take any form of step further. The outcome? Heheheh....

I guess it's due to my hated character that I portrait that my juniors are afraid of me, though I tried to change, some essence of it still lingers.
And I believe because of that vow, I had this fear of females as how my fellow wuliaonanhai would describe.
And also along the way, I have learned to compress my emotions deep within. My course mates seemed to think I am incapable of emotions. Some others say I am putting on a mask often.

Uh-huh. This is me, or at least it's how I look at myself then now.

My childhood friend Ben Ong, who have been following me on this particular journey, asked me a question one day just after form 5: "So Ean, now that your 'cursed' (he's talking about the vow I made) is finally over, who are you targeting next?"

WHAT THE?!? No, not yet. I'll somehow know when God crosses my path with the right one.

And as for myself, my fellow wuliaonanhai said that I changed since the last time we gathered, they said I became even more open and dare to say things I normally wouldn't dare to say. Is it? Maybe, maybe not.

Thank you for your time! Blessed Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Wei Wen's Birthday Surprise!

Hehe! At 11pm on the 2nd of December 2007, We bunch of sneaky children creeped at neighbouring houses, in hopes that Wei Wen did not suspect anything, and that Auntie Lim did not accidentally blurt out our plans. But she is a gem! Thanks Auntie for your help! ^^

Poser pictures and funny antics were of abundance before we charged into Wei Wen's house, i.e as follows:

In this case, Ean's car is the model and Aik Bros are the props. =P

The cake's so cute!

Oh yeah, poserssss!!!

Dang Aik Oui got alot of airtime (or rather cameratime), just because he was holding the cake. heh.

Then we called to correspond with Auntie Lim, then found out she was about to sleep! She thought that our surprise was tomorrow. Anyway, we waited for Wei Li to pretend to throw the rubbish, therefore had a chance to open the gates for us to 'raid' the house. And we tiptoed to his computer room, opened the door and there he was, sitting, meddling with his laptop, then looked at us, surprised. Not Winnie's 'OMGOSHHHH *shrieks* OMGOSHHHHHHH I CAN'T BELIEVE IT drama queen' surprised reaction but his signature dumbfounded speechless kind. So it was a success on our part! yay~~!!


Big boy liao! Mannn adi!

We had a little heart to heart talk and catching up, just like the old days. It was really a nice reunion. Too bad Sharon wasn't there. =(

Last but not least...

A lovely group pic.

(I purposely chose the one where Wei Wen hid his face, due to his 'I don't like to pose' preference. Lol)


Shameless advertising!



staring me, my peeps, my life.

1 Utama or One Utama - 1U or OU?

I had a couple of arguments with different people on different occasion regarding how we should refer to 1 Utama in short form. Most of my closer circle of friends call it 1U, and yet others call it OU.

Well, it's not important as to whether we call it 1U or OU as they both represent 1 Utama Shopping Centre. The two terms are also already shorter terms to the shopping complex, where upon speech it's in two syllables. The only difference then would be one be in number and the other in word.

Personally, I feel that OU is a wrong term to a more correct 1U, and I can tell you factors to my reason. But first, I interviewed a few people to find out what they think:

  • My brother Caine said: "1U. The logo."
  • My brothers girlfriend Suz: "1U. erm .. 1U because .. we tend to pronounce 1 as ONE and .. if it's OU we pronounce it as "O" ? hahaha .. i guess it has been set in our mind."
  • My college mate Ruz said: "1U. Since they already short-formed the 'Utama' to 'U' why not do so to the 'One' to '1'?
  • My church mate Ben Ong said: "1U is a better term because OU might be misinterpreted as something else."
  • Another church mate of mine Lordson quoted: "Because its ONE utama so 1U sounds more appropriate then O U."
  • Phebe said: "OU. 1U sounds capelang... sound malayish... and its more fluent? frens say it dat way?"
  • Jia Wei: "cos its One Utama, so it's OU."
  • Ng Simin: "1U, cause all mt frens says it tat way."
  • Kha Yee: "1U. Sounds nicer."
  • Aik Sern: "1U lah. one = 1 in its true form. why use short form for the number its already short?"
  • Former school mate Chee Seng said: "1U. It's related to the logo."
  • LUCT college mate Derick: "OU. I have to go, I'll let you know later."
  • Nathelly Wee: "OU. Easier to say."
  • Ellen Chua: "OU. other ppl call it ou as well."
  • A friend of mine Sam Teng: "1U, cuz it's unique with the former being a numeral which the latter being an alphabet, hence it's alphanumeric. and 'O' can mean many other words which start with the letter O. Like OUG - overseas union garden."
  • Church mate Matthew: "OU. its just commonly used, just used to saying that."
  • Wei Wen: "1U." He then proceeds to draw the logo and send it to me.
Here you have it, I spontaneously asked those online in my list at this very time I'm typing this post. With the above, I came down with a couple of theories:

  • Generally, my older circle of friends seemed to use 1U, while my younger circle of friends use OU. I guess that 1U was the original term than the newly used OU."
  • Each individual would use the term their closer circle of friends use. However it's not necessarily true as some of the interviewees above are close friends but still use different terms
  • For those who said it's easier to say or it's nicer to hear, these answers I consider redundant. As I said before, both terms are of two syllables. Would it matter whether I spend more time or breath to say either?
  • Many use their respective terms whilst being oblivious about why they use it. It's nothing wrong with that, there are many things in our lives we are oblivious about. We just have to be observant.
And now, my arguments:
  • I agree with Ruz, why not make it shorter with 'One' to '1'? Besides, if I would to write it down in a piece of paper, both in full name and in short form, I'd take less effort to write down 1U (less writing strokes) and 1 Utama (less alphabets).
  • Ben and Sam have legal arguments, the initials OU, though we all know it's 1Utama, it could very well be interpreted to something else, thus causing confusion. Also, very rarely any party use numerical for the first half of the name, so it's unique.
  • If you google out in Malaysian Web Page - "1U" and "OU", 1U's first result is the official site of 1 Utama, whereas OU will have multiple results.
  • The logo of 1 Utama , it's clear that it is a number "1" before Utama.
  • "There is a great deal of dispute over whether the name of the mall is "One Utama" or "1 Utama". A recent press release by the management (Bandar Utama City Centre Sdn. Bhd.) states that the official name is 1 Utama Shopping Centre and not "One Utama" or "1-Utama". This move was meant to limit the confusion of its name, although either one of the mentioned names are easily understood and cannot be confused because of their same meaning."
There you go, these are my points, Well, personally I wouldn't want to reference Wikipedia because anyone can alter it to their liking, however it's the only internet reference and with it it boosts my arguments. If anyone of you have anything to say against the above, I'm open for criticism. But I believe the above are strong enough points to support reason why 1U is a more correct term.


Ok. Arguments aside, what have I been doing lately? I'll keep short and simple.

  • Sharon had her long overdue-d house warming, where we were invited.
  • The Aiks had an unofficial gathering at their place. They'll have an official one soon.
  • We gave Wei Wen a birthday surprise.
That's about it, I'm not up to upload the pictures. That is all for now.

To everyone,
Blessed Holidays

Yet another post on college/uni pressure...

Well people, finally as we approach our final few weeks of the finale of this semester, agree with me that many of us are finally all feeling the PRESSURE of COLLEGE/UNI - final projects, final examinations, final submission, final everything -, and like the cycle of every college/uni semester it is at this final point of stage that demands the most out of an individual.

Courtesy of my ex-uni friend in LUCT, L.M.Jean, a degree architecture science student, who thinks the school of architecture is killing them softly and silently, writes on her experience:

If you are architecture students you've probably experienced:

  • the taste of wood glue
  • changes in your vocabulary: homework to assignment, ball to sphere, pass up to submit, teacher to lecturers, etc.
  • you don't understand how somebody can spend less than RM20 at the supplies store
  • you hate people telling you "go to sleep" or "do you still have a lot of work"
  • your friends and you don't have the same concept of work "Oh well, do it right before class"
  • you've slept more than 20 straight hours on weekends
  • you can easily discuss with authority the effects of caffeine on different drinks
  • no matter the effort you put in a project, someone will always say: "Why don't you add this?" or " Why don't you change this here?" or "I think that... but... yeah, it's alright..."
  • you've heard all your ipod songs/ library of mp3s in a week
  • you aren't seen in public without bags under your eyes
  • whenever you get invited somewhere, it is followed by: "...or do you have a lot of assignments?"
  • you'll dance YMCA with a choreography without a drop of alcohol in your system
  • you are able to write down a quick message with rapidographs, lead holders, markers and ink
  • you constantly make up excuses for courses that are not design based like why you didn't do your work
  • you have more pictures of landscapes and places than of people
  • your worst nightmare consists of, but are not limited to, an uncompleted project
  • someone once called you "lazy" and you wanted them slaughtered
  • you can live without human contact, sunlight, food, etc, but if your potter/printer's ink runs out... disaster!!!
  • when anyone lends you a Bic pen, you look down at it
  • you care not about sports cars, you favorite car is the one where you can out in your giant-sized model, and your huge computer
  • you design wondrous and spectacular things without considering costs
  • you have the modern mark: a blister in the palm of your hands for constantly using your mouse
  • everyone tells you how they admire your design and work and yet there is no money for it.
  • you've gained the ability to sleep in any surface: pencils, keyboards, backpacks, solid-hard ground, your course mates, food, etc.
  • you always somehow have the idea that your project will always be recognized and accepted
  • when you finally have the time to go out you keep thinking: "Who was the idiot that designed the restaurant's bathroom?" "What is the concept to this food menu?" "Who bloody designed this ___? [table, chair, lighting, fork, etc.]
  • you've been at many sunrises, yet you've never seen one
  • you need to read all the above in a online community group, or some architecture student's blog to realize how weird your life is
  • Eh.....
ps: I believe some of the above applies to many of you

One issue though in a design college, especially in LUCT, every student will, against their own will, go through the same crap - the comments the lecturers give you - it's like the Simon Cowell of design school, and when you do go through a critic session:
(Below are all testimonies of different students)

The lecturer said to me:
"Anyone got any matches... so I can burn this"

I was actually inking my drawings way back in first year and a studio professor came up to my desk, he stood there for about 3 minutes, trying to brush the lines off my page with his hand, and said to me:
"Too late, it's already in ink."

I showed my tutor my design, then he went:
"It looks like a rat."
He then proceeds to pen an outline of a rat around the drawing, complete with whiskers and tail:

A lecturer has one look at this girl's model and tell her:
"It's so uninspiring. It's like a male orgasm, 2 seconds and it's over."

"Your architecture is very shallow...
your's like the Paris Hilton of architecture."

"I think something is missing in your project... Oh yeah! Architecture is missing."

ps: critic session - preliminary submission where lecturers or guest lecturers comment on your pin up boards, model, design, artwork, etc.

Yeah... I know it hurts, but when you think about it, it's actually hilarious, and it really does happen to design students, especially architecture students. The lecturers are capable of shooting you from high above to the lowest of grounds. Some poor dude probably spent days drawing, and the crap he goes through. It's frightening...

It makes me wonder, how would I turn out if I remained an architecture student in LUCT? I still am in a design-based college (architecture is also design, building design). And like any other students, I do at times feel like letting go due to our inability to handle stress well.

SURVIVAL, according to Daryl of :
"The main purpose of college is to obtain education and whatever way the individual wishes to manipulate the education for, is up to the person.

College, is also a place where you meet all sorts of different people as well as learning how to work along well with them. Hence, you will be able to witness all the teamwork assignments flooding in.

However, I do not recall college as a place where, you find a group of people you fall in love with, or at least to make yourself think that way, and to stick with them no matter what the circumstances are. To lie, cheat, gossip, act, pretend, neglect or any other "method" to stay in the group.

Frankly speaking, when one enters the corporate world, it's not up to the person to Choose who she/he wants to work with, the employer does. That also means, even if you end up working with a bunch of seniors who push all the workload to you, you have to pull it through too.

Anyhow, to not divert to far away from the topic, the real key element in "surviving", is your mindset. What do wish to achieve in college?Evaluate critically and carefully on those goals, for whom you're doing it for?

Lose your focus and goals and you will find yourself succumbing to peer pressure, doing things that you find yourself dead shocked to only realize you forgot who you really are."

Well, I'm living by God's grace daily, praying for renewal of spirit and mind, so that I won't lose focus on what is truly important of His purpose in my life. Know, my friends, that there is more to a life than of assignments or even of this frightening concept called "our future".

Life is too short to not live, so why don't you take a step of faith and go wherever God leads? Even if it may seem like something stupid and out of your plans, but give it a try, it may lead someplace better.

Sam 'Spike' Witwicky: [to Mikaela when she doesn't want to get back in Bumblebee] Fifty years from now, when you're looking back at your life, don't you want to be able to say you had the guts to get in the car?

Overcoming procrastination

Don't get me wrong, positive procrastination is sometimes good. However, generally it is a bad habit.

Lately, I see myself trying to overcome procrastination. It seemed to work out fine so far by God's grace and by my supportive environment. Yet, I feel that I'm slowly swaying away from my focus, which eventually will lead to burnout. After which it will bring forth both physical and emotional stress. As the stress accumulates more and more in the long term, various illnesses might appear.

So therefore, procrastination is bad for health.

I pray for constant renewal of ourselves, and may God bless you.

When I was young...

Continuing the tale...

*flash back*

I was 5 or 6 years old....

...I was young and innocent I am only innocent...

...I didn't know the meaning of embarrassment.

This is the tale of when I dropped the load, answered nature's call, did my business, call it what you may, in my pants. But most would just say : "I crapped in my pants..."

I was really shy then, even a simple thing of asking to go to the WC was tough for me. So, one day in class, I felt the urge, a strong urge, but I held in for as long as I can, till I can no more. Then it happened...

Strangely, it was only then I had the courage to ask to go to the WC. I tried to wash myself up as clean as I can. However, a teacher saw what happened and wanted to help, she stripped me half naked and saw my nuts/family jewels/[insert name for your little brother].

The day goes on with me being half naked on the lower end. Taking a peek on my nuts, my classmates made fun of me. Come to think of it, maybe they were thinking to themselves : "Too short... too small... sure cannot satisfy future wife..."

When it was time to go home, I walked through the main road to reach my old house in SS1 then. As if it wasn't enough for my classmates to make fun of me, I experience my very first indecent public exposure of my little brother.

The weird thing is, I went through the day as if I was wearing a pants. Yeah, those were the days when the word 'embarrass' wasn't in our vocabulary. Sigh... be continued.

Who knew that Australia could flood too...Haizzzz Even more unbelievable, who knew an apartment on the 20th floor, so ******* high could also flood too. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

It was a Friday night, Aik Sern playing the role of a hot nerd(good looking nerd) carried books up to his apartment. He had just rejected his friends invitation to club, he decided that the best way to deal with the upcoming exams was a locked door and pile of books. He had to seriously increase his brain capacity if he was to even stand a chance at acing the exam.

A hot Italian restaurants and the company of 3 girls and one guy later Aik Sern sat contented in his chair rubbing his one-pac muscle. :D . btw first girl: Naomi, second girl: Ashley Third girl Aik Oui. A friend called, another invitation to club, unlike the first one this clubbing had a valid reason, a birthday celebration (one of the many celebrations which was gonna take place this week) In addition to the valid reason there was a reason of significant importance, this night's clubbing was compliments of the birthday girl, Drinks, entrance, alcohol...everything on the rich bitch. ^^ However steadfast Aik Sern still did not give in to the temptation but then she called on bonds of friendship, it was afterall her birthday party. Aik Sern went clubbing.

Half a bottle of Chivas regal later and after various acts of drunken stupidity, stumbling back to the apartment seemed like a good idea. Saying goodbye to a couple of Hot chicks and not-so-hot chicks and guys of course and then spending the time in the taxi discussing various girl problems with the birthday girl -she's lesbian so that gives us a common topic of discussion- Upon reaching home half drunk Aik Sern dragged his sorry ass up to his apartment. He USED THE TOILET and promptly fell asleep.

The morning was a beautiful morning, one of those days sent by god where although the sun was bright it wasn't that hot. To top off the great morning, Aik Sern woke up early, even after a hard night of partying. Alert and awake, he jumped out of bed ready to tackle various assignments, "splash" the sound of Aik Sern's feet hitting the floor...Floor...FLOOR WTFFF the whole bedroom was awash with water, at least 2 inches of water covered the floor, and all the books and files pushed onto the floor yesterdayyyyyyyyyy AAAAAAA

When the toilet flush button was pushed, it came up again, however the water kept running. There was no hole in the toilet floor (no BLOODY proper drainage system), the water ran and ran and ran and ran and ran and ran for 6 hrs. The toilet bowl was also blocked due to the "Environmentally friendly toilets" where the flush uses only a little bit of water, not sufficient enough to effectively flush everything down.

Carrying furniture and shriveling under the accusatory eyes if the building manager, a very depressed Aik Sern, with his whole day ruined and his assignment schedule ruined and his study areas awash with sewage.

Currently typing this article, while the carpet cleaners clean and the blowers dry the carpet, with furniture stacked around him.

What a wonderful night, what a great morning, what a FUCKED up day

How I met ___. (In my P.O.V.)

Well, I am not entirely sure to the details on how we first met, it is all faint memories of the pass. I do, however, remember partially how it happened.

Cheng Sumin :
First met when we were in form 1 (year '01), we only got to know each other better when we were in form 2. At that time the number of recruits-turned-members of our batch were few, Sumin was among the active members of SL(Y)180 then. Since there were not many active and dedicated members of our batch then in year '01 and '02, getting to know her was fairly easy. She always turned up in every major event then, so naturally our friendship grew through the activities.

Lee Aik Oui :
First met when we were in form 1 (year '01), we only got to know each other better when we were in form 3. Very much like his brother, Oui was a recruit when he was form 1, but only turned member in form 3. Before that, I rarely saw him attending our regular weekly meetings in year '01. What made him active? I do not know really. If my memory serves me well, it was either Sumin or Sharon who pushed him to rejoin SL(Y)180.

Lee Aik Sern :
First met when we were in form 1 (year '01), we only got to know each other better when we were in form 3. Very much like his brother, Sern was a recruit when he was form1, but only turned member in form 3. Before that, I rarely saw him attending our regular weekly meetings in year '01. What made him active? I do not know really. If my memory serves me well, it was either Sumin or Sharon who pushed him to rejoin SL(Y)180.

Sharon Lam :
First met when we were in form 1 (year '01), we only got to know each other better when we were in form 2. At that time the number of recruits-turned-members of our batch were few, Sharon was among the active members of SL(Y)180 then. Since there were not many active and dedicated members of our batch then in year '01 and '02, getting to know her was fairly easy. Her participation in activities fluctuates often in year '01 and '02, but she began to be fully active in form 3.

Lim Wei Wen :
First met when we were in standard 6 (SRJK(C) Puay Chai, year '00), we got to know each other better in the same year itself. He was in class 6E while I was in class 6D. It was just another primary school day in year '00, before classes start, I went over to 6E to have chat with a friend, and that particular friend in which I do not remember introduced Wei Wen to me. Wei Wen was a member of our very own 73rd Petaling Scout Troop before he joined SL(Y)180 in year '03.

Winnie Chua :
First met when we were in form 4 (year '04), we got to know each other better in the same year itself. She was introduced to me through Sumin during SL(Y)180's orientation in year '04. Though she was a relatively late addition to our batch, a great addition nonetheless. She immediately made her presence felt through her outstanding skills in dancing and singing, therefore making friends with her was not at all hard.

So, there you have it.
And the rest, as they say, is history.

Linguini: Thank you, by the way, for all the advice about cooking.
Colette: Thank you too.
Linguini: For... for what?
Colette: For taking it!

McDonalds' Ramadan Buffet

Today, 'twas my first time trying out a McDonald buffet.

"Is there such thing?", this was the question asked by many of my friends when I told them about it.

Apparently, this is the 3rd year since it began, as according to Daryl Heng. Why didn't I know about it before?

The conditions of the buffet are:

  • Happens only on Ramadan, hence the name Ramadan Buffet.
  • Only selected outlets have such feature.
  • RM25 per person, tax included.
  • Starts 6:30pm, ends 8:30pm.
  • The cheaper meals - unlimited takings.
  • The more expensive meals - once only.
  • Leftovers will be charged (or so they said).
What did I do:
  • I went to McDonald, Mutiara Damansara, with Gary, Daryl and Calvin.
  • There was hardly any parking, but found one in no time.
  • The place was quite packed, but many overlooked the empty space at the back of play area.
  • Gary, Daryl, and I simply spammed out orders.
  • We ordered a total of 3 Fish Foldover, 2 Double Cheese Burger, 2 McChicken, 2 Fillet o'Fish, 2 fried chicken, 6 small packets of fries, 13 packets of chicken nuggets, 5 sundaes, 6 apple pies, 6 cups of coke, and anything else I may or may not remember.
  • Couldn't finish all of them, so we forced Calvin to have some since he didn't get the buffet meal. But even with him we still couldn't finish.
  • Afraid that we might be charged for leftovers, and since we can't just take it away, we threw the leftovers in a bin.
  • Weird thing is that the place was guarded well enough, but they overlooked the back area. People tend to exploit the buffet.
  • At the end, we couldn't finish about 1 and a half Fillet o'Fish, Half a McChicken, 3 packets worth of fries and some other small and minor stuff.
My comments:
  • When it comes to buffet, I always have a policy that I must eat 3 times worth the original price. At the very least, 2 times worth. I felt like I only ate 1 1/2 times worth. Not sure about the others though.
  • Somehow, I felt that McDonald having a buffet wasn't a wise idea for us consumers, even if you are a big-crazy-mega-huge eater. McDonald is on the winning side most of the time.
  • In terms of buffet, fast food business can't compare to those of the genuine buffet style. Fast foods are meant to be eaten fast. With it's contents, they are able to make you full with one set meal. What more a buffet? Imagine the amount of calories consumed. I had trouble consuming my second burger after my first, especially when including other side dishes like fries and nuggets, desserts, and soft drinks.
  • If I remember well, I ate 1 Fish Foldover, about 4 packets of nuggets, 1 fried chicken, half a McChicken, 1 apple pie, and 2 cups of coke. The others ate more than me.
My verdict:
  • I don't recommend it.
  • But if you wish to try it out at least once in your whole entire life, go ahead.
  • However, bring some friends along, so that you can challenge each other on a eating contest

"Pala pa pa pa... I'm lovin' it..."

...well not really.

When I was young...

A long time ago...

*flash back*

I was young. 90% of the time people will get confused about my gender and ask: "Are you a girl of a boy?"

What was it that brought about this confusion?

Was it my clothing? Definitely not.
In school I'd wear a guy school uniform. So no confusion there.
On special occasions such as parties or weddings, I'd wear shirt and long pants. No problem here.
But on non-school, normal days, would my casual 'power ranger' T-shirt and short pants bring about this confusion? If not, then what was it?

Was it my personality? Maybe.
I don't really remember what I was like in the past, especially on my elementary days. As far as I remember, I was just a plain mediocre cheerful young child who just wants to have fun, and was really bad academically. Also, I was mostly shy then, whenever I met someone new, it'd take a while before the ice breaks.

What was it then? Of course, I knew the answer before I even started on this entry.
When I was just a child, I had obvious female features on my face, I got them mostly from my mother. If I took a picture of myself then and photoshop myself a long hair and airbrush me wearing a dress, I would 100% definitely look like a girl.

How did I felt then? Well...

Not sure how I felt when people think I was a girl, but most of the time I just took it as gentle good humour. Was I angry? Perhaps. But nothing worth being mad for a long time.

What about now?
Do people still get confuse about my gender today? Not at all. In the past, my female features overpowered my manly features. Not sure for how long though. I think it was around when I just entered secondary school that my facial hair started to grow, spots and blemishes also came along with it, and I have a relatively flat chest... yup. So the confusion was gone.

Well, today I still have some of the female features on my face, MAINLY my eyes. But since people sees things as a whole and generally are not that analytical, my face now is that of a man! However, I'm not regretting at all about my female features, in fact I'm somewhat proud of it.

So, what is the moral of the story here?
I don't know really. If my story above helped you in anyway at all, then good for you! be continued.

You just gotta love home

As far as most of us can remember, our home has always been Malaysia. This is where our roots are. Our Foundation.

As young lads and lassies, we absorbed the Malaysian culture and it's lifestyle. This was the place where we grew up.
It's where we remember our first scraped knee, the agony.

That first day of school, oh, how we cried (or may have not)!
And your first exams... remember the times when getting 98% or 100% was the norm? Those were the carefree days.

It was here that we first met our first friends. Some whom you may even still be in contact with. Those were the times we played home grown games such as Batu Seremban, and Pepsi Cola.
Or running around playing Ice and Fire.

We ran like little children. Sang like little children. Acted like little children..
We were little children.


Before long, we were children no more. We were teenagers. Young Adults. The hope of the future. Time to get serious...NOT!!

Hormones raging, we eyed that cute guy while giggling, or acted all macho when we see a girl walking by.

We learned cheesy slangs like 'yo!', 'dude', 'wassupp?'.
And also the not so pleasant lingo such as 'f***', 'd***', 'S***' ... you get the gist.

We hung out with our friends. Either at the newest and hippiest mall around,
or eating char kuey teow, indomee and nasi lemak wrapped in banana leaves at the local mamak shop or kopitiam.
All these while having the pressures of society weighing down on our shoulders.
Peer pressure and study stress. All part and Parcel of being a teenager.
And all these while, we remain joyful in our homeland.


Now, as we approach adulthood and reminisce on our lives so far, we can really appreciate the wonders of growing up in a place like Malaysia.
Peaceful, warm and bright... except for the yearly haze spells which we have all gotten so used to.
It is the one place we can connect with and identify with.
Our homeland truly has been a blessing.

This is especially dedicated to all Malaysians who are
studying overseas.
We all miss our families and friends we left behind.
We miss the local food, which is cheap yet delectable.
We even miss the weather back home, however hot it may be. Because that is our home.
And we wait till the day term ends, when we can return to see our loved ones again, and be jolly and merry.


To those who are still in Malaysia and wondering what the heck I'm doing praising a hellhole like Malaysia...
well, you won't know until you leave home and live in another country.
Only then can you understand what this is all about.

Also, in conjunction with our recent 50th anniversary of independence,

Malaysia Boleh

It was just another evening...

Sitting in front of my PC, I did not know what to do. In fact, to go through my usual online routine would seemed dull at this moment. I looked through my friendster's home page as part of my routine. That was when I saw a picture, which I then thought to myself : "Maybe I should do something different...".

What did I do you asked? It's simple really, I just sketch out what I saw in that picture.
"I will pass the original piece to you when it's possible."

"Here is my gift to you."

Yup. The title is as it's called by the person in this sketch - emo -
There is only one error about the sketch above, I missed out her earrings...

Well now, back to my routine...

Prince Charming: You! You can't lie! Where is Shrek?
Pinocchio: Well, uh, I don't know where he's not.
Prince Charming: You don't know where Shrek is?
Pinocchio: On the contrary,
Prince Charming: So you do know where he is!
Pinocchio: I'm possibly more or less not definitely rejecting the idea that I undeniably
Prince Charming: Stop it!
Pinocchio: Do or do not know where he shouldn't probably be. If that indeed wasn't where he isn't!

What if...

Before I start this entry, I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Lim Wei Wen for successfully completing the blog. Then again, it's not entirely whole without the participation of my fellow "co-partners" of the Wu-Liao-Nan-Hai blog. However, it would not be fair if I claim all the limelight. So by this I am hoping there will be postings from others, and comments from all you readers (this includes my fellow seniors and juniors).

I was discussing with Wei Wen about how we could make this blog more interesting. We don't want it to fade through time, so we decide to explore other blogs to get inspired.
Back to today's post, I got this idea from my friend to whom many of you may or may not know, a guy name Lordson Yen, which I got the "What if...".

Now back to the entry, it's more like "the road not taken" kind of post...
What if...

What if Ean decided to join others instead of Red Crescent when he is form 1?

Holding the pencil, Ean was deciding whether or not he should join the Cadets. He was in a dilemma, for he was told that the Cadets barely had any other races other than the Malays themselves. But then again, what other could he join? He decided not to join Scouts long before entering form 1 because of his brother's influence, and heck he didn't even know what is St. John at that time.

It was the point of time when the teacher ask for the society form submission, and desperately he just write down on that form "PBSM". Until today, it's not known why he wrote that. But little did he know what journey lies ahead of him.

  • Well technically, he wouldn't join any uniform bodies if he could. One thing he set his mind then was he didn't like uniform bodies then. If wasn't for En. Gurmit making it so compulsory.
  • He will be fatter then the big sized him today, as his only forms of exercise were limited to 3, marching being one of them. He will be sleeping during the Saturday activities, and playing video games.
  • Many lives will be lost due to the fact he didn't know how to do first aid. He would then just stand around looking delightedly at the wounded.
  • "ahhhh"
  • He will take up smoking, taking drugs, tattoo his body, pierce every possible part of his anatomy, go grant theft auto while assassinating everyone he sees, and end up in jail and get an death sentence immediately after one week because he didn't join PBSM.
  • "hmmm..."
  • One thing for sure, Sumin and Sharon would be the only 2 surviving active member during the period of form 1 and form 2. What would become of them? Frightening...
  • The Aiks twins will be more active and produce more results, because of Ean's absence and adding the presence of more females. This will boost them up quickly.
  • Wei Wen would become......
  • Clement Ting will likely join other uniform bodies, due to Ean was unable to do the 'coin flipping bet' of him joining PBSM.Chee Hoong's face will be even 'stoner'. See Wah will be even more a die hard fan of Miriam.
  • Wouldn't know what could happen to the others I recruited.
  • The younger members then will not know the meaning of fear, the fact that he is not there to scare them.
  • Don't know what will Wei Wen become with Ean not being around.
  • Winnie will have one less pair of ears to sing to. Ean's life would be duller.
  • "Err..."
As each one of us plays a part in each others lives, life would definitely be different if I took the other path that day. There is one thing I can be sure of, my other 6 counter-parts played an important in my living on this earth, on my leaving a legacy. My story wouldn't be the same without the presence of them.
Though from time to time I would wonder what would my "what if" life be... WHAT THE?!? WHAT AM I SAYING?!?

I wouldn't have it any other way.

"Gordon: But you're only one man.
Batman: Now we're two."

"Ean: We are 7."

Stay tune for more future episodes of "What if...".

Yes. It is true, the newspaper cutting above shows our Wu-Liao-Nan-Hai blog, fully publicized on Daily WLNH. This proves the popularity of the Wu-Liao-Nan-Hai blog is one that should not be denied attention.
