A Slice of The Past 3

Finished studying Add. Maths with head splitting consequences. As I kept my writing utilities in my drawer, a shiny box caught my eye. I reached into the drawer pulling out an old, dusty, silver spectacle box (classy eh). As I wiped the layer of dust off, the name 'Revo' appeared inscribed on the cover. As I opened the box, I was greeted by a sight, I thought I had long forgotten. My first spectacles.

Upon primary observation, this pair of glasses resemble that of a bygone era. An era when digital cameras was still on paper, when LCD televisions costs RM30,000 per piece, an era I'd like to call, the late 90's. Year 1999 to be exact. That's right fellow readers. I was short sighted for 10 years already. That's a decade in other words. Yeah, but it's the institutional matter of total geek-ism which makes this pair of glasses unique. If you've noticed the design, one can't help but wonder, how prehistoric it is.

All in all, this glasses have served me we…

Malaysian Laughter

Went to Tesco to get some stationery supplies. (yeah, I ran out of Foolscap Paper for the 4th time). Not to mention, groceries. Then, I came upon this sign which really got me wondering about Malaysian thinking.



Either the person ignorantly placed this signboard here, or he needs stronger glasses or maybe, the management doesn't have the correct signs. Whatever the case, it still sends a misguided message. Any foreigner who'd stumble upon this sign would stare around aimlessly looking for the escalator.

In conclusion, in Malaysian life, things like this always occur. Hence, do not be surprised to find signboards, 3 times as hilarious.

JAVOL!!!


You Must Be Joking

I used to think that life is a rather rigid item where if you play by the rules, everything would go just fine. I used to think that you have to give it your all to be something or else you would get all sorts of crap thrown at you. I know what it feels like to be in this position. Being a tall person doesn't make you the most popular guy around but it does place you as the butt of jokes. But this very concept of life (Life is a horrible thing. You live it through and just die. Silver lining my foot) which I perceived was about to change. I thought that life sucked. I was wrong. I was dead wrong.

Yesterday, I received a phone call which was about to slam me like a tonne of bricks. Seriously. It was about 4.30pm. I had just finished my Biology revision when I received this phone call and it went somewhat like this:

*phone rings

Me : Hello?

Caller : 请原谅我可能请对Thomas 刘 说吗?

Me : 是的,这是 Thomas 讲话.

Caller : 我在叫喊从........

Me : errmmm....您能否请说英语? 我不真的是能讲流利普通话.

Caller : Oh, very well then. I'm c…

Another Sunday

Woke up at 8.00am today. Did some revision on Radioactivity. Now the only thing ringing in my head is a.m.u. and MeV. Damn! Had breakfast at about 11.00am. The curry noodles was lovely though a bit spicy. Went home and packed up some items to head back to grannies. Aunt from Singapore came back so we decided to drop by for a visit.

I managed to perfect 'Apologize' on the piano. Finally.... And I managed to get some Add. Maths done. After some research (by doing all other state papers) I have come to a conclusion that Perak's Add. Maths Trial Paper was by far the hardest compared to other states. Seriously. But with the amount of leakages, it may have been by far the easiest for a handful of students.

In the evening, we went to the gym and swimming. Heh! Heh! My brother and I were racing in the pool to see how many laps we could do and who could outlast who. Well, as usual, we couldn't find out who actually won as both of us so conveniently forgot how many laps we did.

Aft…
