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...".
