The Gap Between 2 Worlds

Well, I was scrolling through the web as well as Facebook and I seem to run across pages and pages of articles mentioning expressions of girls and what they really mean (ie: Go ahead = I dare you. Not a permission. Don’t do it). Hell, I even found them in my e-mail inbox (among other crap) which begs this question to be asked, “Why do it?”I mean, of all of hem I have read, I have not seen one that has ever placed a boy as the protagonist. We have never been the protagonist in any of them but more accurately, we are seen as the antagonist. Every time a girls feelings are hurt is because the antagonist had something to do with it. Every time there is an argument, the antagonist started it. Every time the toilet seat is up, it’s the antagonist’s fault………ok, maybe it’s our fault on the last bit. But this begs another question to be asked. “Why is it our fault?”It is quite common for individuals of the feminine side to say that it is as close to intolerable to live with us. But is it reall…

My Boy, You Are Now A Man

Since I’m on semester break, I can’t help but dish out all the old photos in the album to have a look. One thing which caught my eye was a person I use to tease a lot. He used to be ‘bashful Barry’, finding every reason to hide from anyone and everyone whom he is not acquainted to. One picture which caught my eye was this one:Observe the gentleman to the left.Yup, today, I’m going to talk about:MY BABY BROTHER!!!The photo above was taken in 2007 along Gurney Drive, Penang. My younger brother was plump, bashful and a complete antisocial. He would never mix with anyone he didn’t know. He never participated in any activities be it in school or out of school. Sigh! It was a real heartache to see him like that. I was worried he would be an antisocial for life. Honestly, I took pride in myself back then, being the head of many clubs and societies, sociable and just plain extroverted. My baby brother was the complete opposite of me back then. Physically plump and slightly unfit, I prayed eve…

The God of Thunder

Fellow readers, a movie which I would recommend all of you to watch is this: Went to Mid Valley Megamall on the 6th of may 2011 (Friday) with the intention to watch Fast Five. Left INTI at about 4.30pm and arrived at 5.30pm. Waited in line to buy the ticket for about 35 minutes. Yes, I didn’t manage to make prior reservations so guess what, it was all sold out (next time, I’m getting the damn Eon Card). Anyway, I was stuck with no idea of what to watch. Catherine was by my side and she saw the hatred glow of anger in my eyes. Asking if Thor was ok with her, she agreed. Best part about it was she insisted on paying for the tickets as an early birthday present for me^^ In total, we spend RM 26 on the tickets only, FOR 2 PEOPLE!! (things are really getting more expensive) I felt ashamed at myself. I was a person who could never lose. No matter what the challenge was, I was willing to push myself to insurmountable limits in order to achieve the greatest of challenges. Not even when my he…

The Tale of Three Boys and a Hill

Well, firstly, what I am going to say is not much of an epic plan but more practically a symbolic  event. But before heading in that direction, let’s head towards the direction of how it all began.As you all probably know, my brother, Loo Lip Yong is flying off to America in about 2 months time. Yes, a big congratulations to him for being admitted into Wisconsin-Madison to pursue his dreams of becoming ‘The Wall Street Builder’.The soon to be, ‘Wall Street Builder’Well, I was heading back to Ipoh on the 10th of May 2011. And Lip Yong’s exam would only finish on the 9th. Yeah, this would be his last semester in INTI International University and before I leave for semester break, it was logical to go out with a bang. So, the suggestion for a hiking expedition was chosen. Location: Broga Hill, Kampung Broga, Negeri Sembilan Time: 5.00 am Date: 10th May 2011 Met up at 5 am as agreed at Block C. Sad to say, I was the one who was late because I had to look for some protection. Basically, we we…

A Woman to Love, Cherish and Care Forever

The photo albums lay abundantly placed, like memory cards, storing all the memories no longer remembered by the humanly defected brain. Some photographs remind me of times not to long ago, and some even remind me of a time that my brain was not even developed to remember. I flipped through, examining each one of those photos with great detail. Pages after pages I flipped, and a chronological order of the timeline showing this woman holding two little baby boys, each barely a pound heavy to a the time the two boys became men all played out. “My oh my, whoever these two kids are, they must be really lucky to be cherished, loved and cared for by this woman,” I thought. “Oh, you have no idea how true that statement is.”It seemed like every second, of every minute, of every hour, of every day, this woman would be there for these two boys. The love this woman gave the boys were immense, insurmountable even by the power of the universe. A force of love so great that no one, not even the forc…
