Our Past Memories

Sometimes, when we tends to grow older or when we are far away from our dearest friends, one of the things that tends to creep into our minds is the past memories of our lives experiences. We had a lot of experiences in our lives. When we are away, what else experiences that we will think of besides FOODS!!!??? Sure are our sweetest memories that we had with our dearest friends.

May be for some of you, you still don’t have that experience of missing friends that really brings a lot of impact in your life. Mainly because you are living in your comfort zone (that is Malaysia) or you are currently having a relationship with your beloved one. If it’s not as what I mention, I guess you are currently living in a life that full of denial.

So, for me, practically every single night, thousands of memories that I had with my friends will just gush into me, filling me with tears of joy as I recalled the wonderful moments that I had with my friends. Guess when you are far away from your friends, they seems to be flawless at that point. All the toughs that you have about them are just… they are way to perfect to be your friends!

So, what I have in my minds now are just friends when I’m writing this blog. Its 3am now. My minds just cannot satisfy with the tiredness that I had for the whole day. Instead it’s stuffing me with flashes of joyful moments that I had with my 5B’s friends. Flashes of images of my friends keeps on tickle my nerves that gives impulses to inspired me to think of them… My mind just cannot enter the dream world that I yearn to go since I had my dinner…

One of my best friends, Shin Chin, brings a huge impact in my life. I think the peak of our friendship was the time when we were in Form 3. That time I didn’t know what had happened that make us become best friends. But what I remember is the time when we were in Form 4, we always had some crazy ideas going on. For examples, she wants to learn how to drive a bike, go to disturb other classmate and riding on a bike, strolling around the city and etc. Every time whenever I feel so bored, I would drive my bike to her house, looking for her to find something that will make me happier. She even teaches me how to play the piano. Until now, I still can remember how to play the melodies that she thought me. Whenever I’m sad, she is the one that always cheer me up and helps me whenever I needed help. I still keep one of her letter that she gave me last time when I was way to depress.. I still keep that letter for your information… Right at the end of that letter, she wrote a sentence, “SMILE ALWAYS!!!” And that sentence always reflected in my heart whenever I miss her. Because whenever I miss my friends, I will be a bit sad and depress… but with the sentences, I will tends to smile and be grateful that I have such a best friend like her. Another wonderful thing that she did in my life was she changed my personal image. From young till Form 4, I was with my monk hair style… and that pathetic thought because now I finally realize why I don’t have any girlfriends. Haha… all because of that hair… at least she make the effort to change my personal look and now I look a bit more handsome and man.. haha.. I’m not trying to boasting around here. Indeed last time I can be compare to an ugly duckling. When we were in Form 5, we did quite a few activities together. Joining the school choir, going to Pangkor Island, having some fun by shopping and eating some great foods in Sitiawan were few of the activities that we had last time. To tell you the truth, without her, maybe I will be a mama’s boy, knowing nothing about this world. At least with that experiences she share with me, I manage to search for the fun that are hidden in this world. There are a lot more things that I can describe about her. But since all the past memories that I had with my friends are popping out too fast, I better go into the next one in case I forget about them.

For the next one is Yu Xuan, one of the greatest best friends and brother that I had when I was in secondary school. I still remember how for the first time I hate him when I was in Form 1. Surprise why I mention that? Haha…. Actually when I was young, I am quite a playful guy that like to fooling around and quite a brutal one. So, when I enter Form 1 for the first time, I want to have more friends. The things are I don’t know how… So, since I’m so playful and I was in the second floor, when I saw him standing and talking with his friends just below the building that I was standing, I just pluck the seeds from nearby tress that grows so near to the building and throw right at his head. And as the result, he rush up to that floor and gave me a hard kick on my lower leg… oh gosh!!! I still can imagine the pain that I got from him. And form that day on, I declare that he is my enemy. Haha.. Childish… Our friendship spice up when we were in Form 4. From an enemy, we turn into best friends. Irony? Guess miracles always happened in one’s life. I still remember how we turn into a foe. In Form 4, out of sudden, he say that he want to be my friend. For me, I wouldn’t want to accept him as I’m the one that cannot forgive my enemy. But he manages to break through the barrier that sealing up my heart to outsider. I cannot do anything to stop him too as he is too sticky as a glue. He keeps on invading my life and tries his best to be a friend of mine. His effort was not wasted. Finally in Form 5, our friendship grows stronger and stronger till we become best friend. Among all the craziest things that we did was driving a bike from Ayer Tawer to Changkat Keruing. It took us about an hour to reach that place. Guess he is the one that make me break my family’s rules. I started to live in my friend’s house, which I never do before I know him, and go out to have a drink at night and in the middle of night; we go to Lumut just to visit the beach. So, here he helps me to discover the beauty of night life and how to be a man!! The greatest thing that he did in my life was he helps me to find my first love, the first love that I had with Jesus!!! That is just a great memory that will forever imprint in my mind till death tears me apart. Because of him helping me to understand and find the true meaning of Christianity, I am who I am now. I finally know what a life means is and how to enjoy every single breath that I left in this world. I wouldn’t be true believers that wanted to seek God more and more every day and love and treasure the people besides me if he didn’t help God to seed Christianity in my souls… and he planned my birthday and gave me a precious bible that I’m using till now, accompany me walking the journey that full of life challenges…

Now another good friend of mine is Yvonne Loi. The first time I manage to meet her was in primary school. We studied together in MES, which was the school that I like the most. Since my family forces me to study in a Chinese school, I had no choice but to go and lost a friend like her. Look like our friendship is not over. I manage to meet up with her again in secondary school. The first sight when I saw her in secondary school, I was shock! “Who is that? Is that the girl that was once my friend in primary school? Am I mistaken her for someone else? No… I don’t think that I mistaken about that”. And as usual for whom I was in Form 1, I just rushed in front of her and gave her a shock. I think I kept on bulling her that time. I know for sure she hates me a lot… haha… Last time she was too man to be a girl. She was way too stubborn and particular in every thing that she did. I think till now, she is still who she is when she was in secondary school, just that she become more like a lady that have a good taste in fashion. The memories that I had with her also being built up in Form 4. She will always chat with me and joke with me during recess time since. We even gossip around and talk lots of nonsense in the class… and since she did not took any Chinese class that time, both of us tends to go out from the class and hanging out somewhere. Haha… what she did in my life is, she teach me how to be a more fashionable guy. She and Shin Chin help me to find the hair style that suits me the best! Thanks to her, my face now becomes smoother and less pimples. She introduces me to use facial cleaner. Till now, I still continue to use since it really help to clear my face form dirt and all sort of stuff… I look younger compare with my other siblings… haha… Sometimes being around with her, it makes me feel a bit more inferior or humble since her English is so good. And she is the one that inspired me to speak in English in secondary school. Compare to the other classmates that I had, she never says that I’m trying to show off myself by speaking in English. Being with her is comfortable in the sense that you can be who you are and not a hypocrite that you usually mask in front of the others. What I’m trying to say is, she don’t care who you are and what you are made from. What she wants is just you be sincere in whatever things that you do and you say. Strait forward! Haha… so, she is a kind of friends that you want to have in your life because you no need to turn around the bush to speak to her. Offence her and she will kick your ass strait away!!!

Recently I just added Vee Ee to my best friend list. Ever since I’m back in Malaysia, he is the one that really make the effort to help me out and be with me as what a friendship is all about. Sacrifices that he made as a friend, it really make me feel so glad to have him as one of the best. I think I meet him when I was in Form 4. That time he just moved to our school. “Oh gosh, he is a transfer student. I think I meet him before… he looks familiar”. True enough indeed I meet him when we were in primary school. Just have a word or two before we end our standard 6. So, now back in Form 4, we didn’t really chat much since we don’t have any similar topic to chat with. I think the time that I had some words with him was because I needed his help in physic, which is the topic that I’m so weak in. I think that is the only memories that I had with him in our high school life. Then we precede our friendship when he was in Form 6. I’m back for the first time after I left to study in Ukraine. Em… I guess nothing much happened between me and him during that time. Because he was busy with his studies too and I had to be with my family. I only had the change to meet up with them on Sunday or Saturday night. Still remember the time that I had with him when we went to Lumut to have our supper. We ordered “ice-kacang” and some drinks. Although both of us don’t really have a precious past memories, I think it’s still not too late for me to have him as one of the best friend. All the effort that he put in to cheer me up and enjoy my holidays fruitfully back in Malaysia. And thanks to him, I’m able to meet other new great friends that also share a part of my sweet memories back in Malaysia. I still remember the 1st year when I went back to Malaysia, he was the one that updated me on the news about 5B’s friends. He show me the video and pictures about the gathering that 5B’s had when I was not in Malaysia and even burn a CD for me to carry that memories of 5B with me to Ukraine so that when I miss you al, I can have a peep in it. Indeed he is one of my caring friends that know my needs. Vee Ee, Thanks a lot for all the precious things that u did in my life.

Now for the cute bunny who is Qian Hui. I gave her that name when I was in Form5, if I’m not mistaken, because she is so cute and as energetic as a rabbit. What she did in my life was she brought me to her church. Her church is quite an energetic church. It just inspired me not to limit myself in all the things that I do. I can just dance, sing out loud and shot His name without caring about what people will think about me. For me, I saw her when I was in Form 2 and really know her when I was in Form 4. I know her through Shin Chin as she always hang out with her. My first impression towards her is not a good one because for me, all those book worms are just weird to be friends. Maybe they don’t even know what the true meaning of friendship is. But I’m wrong. She is a clever girl and she is quite a nice girl too.. Not as what I had imagined… I still remember she always give me a lot of advise. It’s not because I did something wrong or being idiot in doing things. She just doesn’t want me to get influence by one of my friends. According to her, she said that he is way to wild and bad for me to be friends with, and it’s totally opposite to my character. Sound like she was trying to protect me. Sound so motherly… haha.. She didn’t know that the friend that she mentions was my best friends. em… I think for her case, I had quite some sweet memories with her and some bad one. For the bad one, she was the one that always didn’t keep her promise. Busyness is her main reasons even till now. So, sometimes I got so angry with her because she blows up whatever promises that I’d made with her. Other than that, she still consider as my good friend because the time that I had with her was a wonderful one. We laugh, we joke and we eat variety of foods together. All the life experiences that I’d gone through with her shaped some of the fields that I face in life…

Yip Song, Yip Song… that name sometimes cheers me up whenever I’m down or depress because of friends. It’s like he knows when I’m sad or when I need any help from friends. Even till this day, he is the one that always sent me messages, wishing me all the best in the things that I do, cheering me up when I’m lonely with his cute sms, encouraging me by telling me although friends are not there for me, their spirit still besides me… I think he is the only one that sms me. Every single month, I’m sure that I will receive a sms form him. He is the only one that really uses action to prove that I’m still one of his friends… for your information, he also is one of my best friends that I have listed down. All the suffering that I went through, some of it, he is the one that I should thank for helping me to get through. For me, I think he is my classmate since Form 1. That time he was just an immature kids that was so playful. He likes to run around the school, chasing with his friends and being chased by them. We was somehow so perverted because when recess time came, and he got nothing to do, he will go and molest guy’s little brother. Haha… guess my brother had been molested by him too… haha… but I’m the type that always take revenge. Sure enough his end up in painful condition, not a nice one… haha… oh… I still remember the time when we had gathering in his house. It’s quite a nice one. At least he makes us know each other well. We eat together and joke around in his house. He held quite some gathering in his house though. Thanks to him, I’d gained more sweet memories in Ayer Tawar. And back in Sitiawan, when he was in Form 6, he took me for a ride with his bike around that place. Guess we did not much things back there. Thank you for always being such a supportive friend, a friend that knows what a friend need. I know now you are in the period of depression. Whenever you need my help, I’m sure I will always be ready for you. I wanted to see the old Yip Song that is carefree and always smile and being so positive in everything that you think or do. I promise you that I will do whatever it takes to help you to get back that happiness in your life. Please do not be depress or sad because my heart aching every time when I see you are sad… sometimes tears just flow down when I notice that I cannot do anything to help you back in Malaysia. Please be strong friend!!!

So, I guess now is the turn for Mona or Siew Wen. I think when she is reading this blog, in her mind will asking why haven’t reach her turn… haha…I think she will scroll down and read hers’ first, as what I remember who she is… don’t blame me for that… haha… I knew her when I was in primary school, because we study in the same school and live near to each other. I think when I was young that time, I hate her a lot. Mainly because she was my neighbor, she talk too much and she too egoistic. But later on, again when we meet together in secondary school, our friendship grew stronger. I think that time she was the president for counseling’s club. And who she was, she always council me for sure. That time I’m having quite a lot of hard time since I had troubles with my friends and family. She will be there to help me up and be give me any advise that I needed to go through with. Reflected back the memories that I had with her, I think mostly it’s the time when we hang out, joking and chatting. In Form 4 or 5, since we were the school PA, both of us always being together. During the “perhimpunan”, we will be in a special room, sitting on a comfortable sofa, chatting all the way until the gathering finish. I still remember she always gossip with me about everything or anything… I think basically we don’t have much sweet memories in secondary school. I’m sorry to say that. But cheer up, why are you being mention in my blog? One of the main concerns is because you really did something in my life. When I was back in Malaysia this year, although we didn’t really had time to meet up, she still make the initiative to spend some time with me. I’m very happy that she did that. Friendship is all about fellowship. Without it, how can friends are called as friends…. haha… the time that I had with her, we went to shop for clothes. Actually I’m the one that want people to accompany me shopping… And she helped me to choose some quite nice and stylish shirt! Thanks a lot for that!!!

Bryan oh Bryan… whenever that name creep into my mind, I will think of Bryan O’ Molly… haha… That is not a name of any famous actress or books. I just don’t know how I got that name from. May be from one of the food in Mac Donald? Just simple combine his name with the name of the food and poof, I got that name… Haha… Anyway, that name just sounds nice and cute. Back to the past when we were in secondary school, he was my class leader. He was a class leader that do his best and quite a responsible guy. I think there was nothing much that we did together when we were in secondary school. But the best moment that I had with him was when I was in Malaysia for my summer holidays. He is quite a busy boss that always travels around with his “Kancil” or “Kelisa” or whatever la…. I just don’t really care what that car is. What I want to say is, he organize a small gathering for me since the time that I had organized was not suitable for him. He really makes a commitment to the promise that he had made. After finished his work, he strait away rush down to meet up with me. I can see the tiredness reflected by his face. For my sake, he sacrifice his resting time to meet up with me as he knows that if he didn’t meet me that day, we will never have the chance to meet again in the next few years. Thanks a lot for that, Bryan. Oh ya… I just remember we did have a sweet moment together. It’s the time when we were celebrating Chinese New Year! That time we did have a great fellowship together. He tries to make us laugh by using his cold old jokes. And in the end, no one smile… that sad though… haha… at least he did his best to make us feel comfortable. Bryan, for me you are one of the great and responsible friend that I have. I’m sorry that I didn’t really chat much with you that time since when I was back there, there are some gaps that make me feel so awkward when facing you. It’s not because you are not good enough or funny enough. That gap is the gap that results from distance friendship that we have. But I’m sure that next time when we meet in the future, we will be able to chat and laugh and do all sort of crazy things together. K? It’s a promise

And for this guy here, he is also one of my best friends that know what I require in a friendship. In last blog, I did mention about him. But since this is the blog all about our past memories, indeed he planted some sweet past memories when we were in secondary school. I meet him only when we were in Form 1. That time, I’m not that close with him since he always mixes with one of my enemy who was one of his good friends. Guess you all no need to know who is… haha… Then our friendship blossom when we were in Form 4. But still, our friendship didn’t really go to the stage of good friends. Soon when he was in Form 6, which was the time when I really got to know him better. I remember that I spent a night living with him in his rented house in Sitiawan since he was studying there. And for that night, he suggested some crazy ideas. So, I agree to go with whatever plan he wants to execute. First, we had some football show going on. That time, in his house, he lived with Vee Ee, Shang Wen and some others that I forget who those were. So, after finish watching the match, it’s about 1am. And he suggested we go for midnight “nasi lemak”. The stall just located somewhere far from his rented house. We drove there just to had some supper that according to him was delicious. And the next thing in the morning, about 4 or 5 in the morning, we were crazy enough to go to a “kom piang” stall just to buy some foods. And things getting worse when we had to wait for a few hours before we manage to buy that hot “kom piang” strait form oven. During that few hours, you know what we did? We totally chatting nonsense with the boss’s wife. That is one of the foolish experience that I got from him. But the main point is, I’m glad that I had that experience, and it strengthen up out friendship during that few hours. Oh ya, forget to tell you what is the “kom Piang”. It’s a kind of munchies that is made from flour and stuff with pork inside. What a night life that I had with him last time. It’s an amazing journey that I had with him. Thanks to him, I manage enjoy myself back in my hometown. it’s good to know you friend. Just want to let you know that you are also one of the best!!!

If two hearts are meant to be friends,
No matter how long it takes,
How far they go,
How tough it seems,
Fate will bring them together,
To share friendship forever.
Friendships are just like a circle,
A circle that has no end,
Has no imperfection,
What a circle has is just a continuous line.
It’s just like out friendships,
Forever and forever meets no end!!!

"Kampung Boy"

Have you ever heard someone proudly declare that he/she is a “kampong boy”? I’m sure this is a rare case. Wherever we go or wherever we are, we always don’t really want to admit that we are just a mere “kampong boy”. Why? Because we ain’t want to be look down by the others. Our pride is the reason why we do so! As what the English saying” the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence”. For us, when we finally have the chance leave our hometown, which is just a small “kampung”, we ain’t gona boast how great out “kampung” is. But on this summer when I go back to my hometown, I learned something new, something that is so meaningful and great.

On August 05, 2008, after 3 weeks I had been staying in my house, finally I had the chance to meet up with my friend. Guess who? I’m sure for those people in 5B sure know who he is. Only he alone always proclaims that he is a “KAMPUNG BOY”!!! And for those who still so blur, I advise you all better brush up your relationship with out dearest 5B’s friends. And for those who haven’t met him, I wouldn’t blame you for not knowing who that is. Haha..

So, here he is, Jeng Siang, my beautiful 5B’s classmate. Ain’t he beautiful? Haha… No offence in saying that, indeed he inherited his mother’s beauty. But still I’m sure that he is handsome in some other way.

“Kampung” is just a paradise for those people who love nature. Not many people really know how to appreciate this place since according to them; it’s a bored place which full of old people. They haven’t really know how many things that they miss out when they are in “kampung”. I was once had the mindset like them.

So, I had plan my a day and night trip to my friend’s house which is located in a place named “Changkat Keruing”, which is 45minute drive from my hometown. It’s a place that is much more “kampung” my hometown as they still don’t have ‘seven eleven’ or any fast food restaurant.
I’m a bit regretted because for this trip, I wasn’t been able to took some nice pictures because I was too lazy to do so. I think I will just post some nice moment that I had with Jeng Siang.

On the 1st day of my trip, he brought me to another town 10minutes away from his hometown. There, I bought myself a bowl of “Tie Ban Mian” and mixed BBQ seafood which consist of variety of seafood such as squid, prawns, snails, fish and etc on a very cheap price. That is one of the benefit that you can get if you plan to stay in a “kampung” area. Everything is so cheap!!! Then we precede our plan to buy some junk food in supermarket so that later at night we can watch horror movie. After finished shopping, we go back to have a bath and rest for a while. Suddenly an idea just pop up in our mind to go “long kai”, it’s a Cantonese word for “loitering around” by using motorcycle. Since for 2 years I don’t have any chance to ride on a motorcycle, I eagerly wanted to go for a ride. And he took me for a ride, visiting his hometown and showing me where his school compound is. Just right beside a road, there is a hawker. So, we decide to go and have our supper. I ate a bowl of “Wa Tan Ho”, a type of Chinese dish that consist of noodle mixed in a delicious dense soup… After our supper, we went back to watch our horror movie from TV. Haha…

So, the funs really begin in the 2nd day. 8 o’clock sharp we woke up and prepare ourselves. Using the motorcycle as our vehicle since it is fun when the wind stroke through your hair and creep pass your skin and stimulate your skin receptor. We go to a hawker stall, having a bowl of curry noodles, “wan tan”, and “kong lou mee”. It’s quite cheap, nice and filling for sure!

After having our breakfast, my friend drove me to another place which located not far from his hometown. It’s a place that located near a beach. And sure enough, since it is located near “kampung” site, the sea water was super duper clean.

The beach is sandy white and when you step on the beach, u can fell that the sand are so smooth and warm. The beach is sparkling as if it is filling with crystals and diamonds. Look at the picture that I took with him.. Our feet just like sank in it when we stepped on it.. The feeling is just indescribable. It’s so awesome after so long I didn’t have any chance to visit a beach. I guess I also cannot differentiate which one is my leg…haha..

The things that surprise me is the beach have a lot of living things that you never imagine that you’ll see. When I 1st arrive there, I notice there something creeping on the beach. Those are craps!!! Hell lot’s of crap!!! And he told me in that sand, I also can find some creature name as “sea cockroach”… haha.. that is the name that I gave when I saw he dig one for me. According to him, the thing taste crunchy and nice. I just don’t have the luck to eat that stuff…

I’m so happy that I have a “kampung” friend that is so proud of his own hometown. For several times I asked him whether he prefers “kampung” or city? And his answer is still “kampung” although for few months he had been studying in KL.
I also manage to visit the turtles’ resident. It’s great experience for me to see a lot of turtles there. I never imagine that I would see an alive turtle with my own eye. They just look so pure and cute. I always imagine that turtle is green in color and ugly. Ever since I saw that turtle, how I wish that I can hold them and ride on them.. hehe..

For me, turtle is just like a spaceship, floating freely and enjoying their lives. They look so light yet so heavy and dense.

And for the baby turtle, they look so cute and juicy… Haha… I really had the thought that they can make a delicious dish… HAHAHAHA… I think because of the people like me exist in this world, all the turtle extinct. They are cute, right? You will never have any chance to see these things in a city… and I can get so near to smell the fragrance of the water and snap some photos.

So, after an hour or two, we had finished visiting, we go back to have a rest. And now another fresh memory was added to my brain slot. He brought me to visit his father’s plantation and other plantation that near it. I manage to gasp the fresh air that haven’t been polluted by any chemical or any pollutants.

There are still a lot of things that I can describe here. It’s just I don’t have much time for me to do that. So, here I am, telling all of you that I’m proud to be one of the “kampung boy”. And so did him and the others that know how great our “kampung” is. We can get everything fresh, strait from the farm, fruits garden and from sea. Everything is just great. People that have the experience to live in a “kampung”, please do appreciate your hometown as a lot of great memories and histories were being born from that place! And thanks ya Jeng Siang for showing how to crack into the heart of our hometown and enjoy the creation in it! That is what friends always do, help, share the happiness and remind each other so that no one will fall. Friends forever!!! Hope you all will continue to appreciate the friends around you!!!

My 21st Birthday!!!

My New Friends

My 5B's classmate

It’s it great for us to have friends around us? Friends forever will be a part of our life. No matter its new or old friends, wherever we go, or wherever we are now, friends always support us and console us when we are sad. Besides our dearest family, friends are like our second family. They know how to care, to love and to cheer us up. As for me, I’m so blessed because I have such a great friends, friends that were my classmate when I was in Form 5 and a group of newly met friends!

It’s such a great blessing that I received from God this year because when I was back in Malaysia, I had great time with my dearest friends. For this year, I’m turning into 21st. And guess what the gift that I receive from my friends? It’s something that is more precious than any material that the world yearns for. For me, the greatest gift that I receive is “THE MEMORIES OF PRECIOUS FRIENDSHIP”!!! I’m so happy that I have this present, because these memories from my friends will never fade away as it had rooted in my heart and mind forever and ever.

It had been 3 years I study in Ukraine, and only on my 3rd year of education, I went back to Malaysia for my summer holidays. During this short period, a lot of memories being imprinted in my life. To tell you the truth, I never tasted then true meaning of friendship until now. I can fell the zest just stream out within me, covered up all the sadness and tiredness that I brought back from Ukraine. I felt so refreshed and alive!

My old friends from Form 5, Yu Xuan, Bryan, and Shin Chin sure help me to discover the fun of eating in a “mamak stall”. Although it’s just a simple dinner, still it helps me to remember them as a part of my memories. And sure the food is one of my listed foods that I want to eat in Malaysia. Bryan was my class leader when I was in Form 5. For me, he is a responsible guy. Although he always seems to be busy, he still will make a free slot for his friends. And he will always try his best to complete the duty that are entrusted to him. I will never forget a brother who is responsible, helpful and nice like him. And for sure he is one of the great servants of our Lord.

For Yu Xuan, who was my best friend, it’s great that I can meet up with him once more. Indeed when we were in Form 5, we had a lot of great memories.. But those memories seem to be fading away days by days as we did not keep in touch. Sad though.. But think of the positive way, I did not lose him as a friend! As now I meet him back in Malaysia, I can continue to renew my memories about him. For me, now he seems have a very different personality, views and taste. It’s great though because I have a friend like him who dares to try to be different. I hope that our friendship will continue to grow and I hope when we meet next time, we will have a wonderful time chatting and play together! He is also another great servant of our Lord. Nice to have them as a brother in Christ!

My dearest caring friend, Shin Chin, is one of my best friend who always being there for me when I needed help. I still remember when I was in Form 5, she always help in everything. Even now, she helps me to plan the gathering that I had with my 5B’s classmate. It’s always fun for me to hang out with her. She will tell you all sort of cold jokes and suggest a lot of fun activities to play. This time, I feel so guilty because when I was back in Malaysia, I didn’t talk much with her. May be it’s because for few years we didn’t really see each other. But still, in my mind, she is my best, caring and fun friend that I ever have. Indeed I will miss the joyful time that I had with her last time in Form 5 and last summer!

A week before my flight, I had been in KL with my friends already. Thanks to my friend, Shin Chin, I manage to have a gathering with my old 5B’s classmate in Midvalley. For few weeks I desperately want to meet up with my entire great classmate. But in this gathering, not all present. What I wish for is to know each of them better as I didn’t had any chance to fellowship with them for the past 2 years.

Actually Shin Chin and the others plan to give me a birthday surprise during this gathering, but a few days before the actual gathering, one of my cute classmate, Qian Hui, accidently sms me, telling me about the surprise that they had planned for me. So, it’s no longer secrete nor a surprise for me. Haha.. They still celebrated my 21st birthday although the plan did not work as what they had planned.

For my 21st birthday, the celebrated it in a place called as “Prince”. It’s quite a nice restaurant. And the boss of that shop is a very nice guy. He gave me a cup of ice-cream as my birthday present. We had a great time eating the cakes… sure it tastes nicer and sweeter as I have a lot of good friends accompany me eating the delicious cakes.

From the bottom left, Yip Song is one of my great friends. For me, he is quite a carefree guy who worries about nothing. Although his facial expression looks like he’s tired, he’s an energetic guy. He can joke around and laugh all the way. I think in Ukraine, he is the one that always use “friendship” to encourage me. I still remember the sms that he sent me when I was stress up and sad. He said “Friend, sometimes life will be hard for us, but just face it like a challenge; there will be better future for us. Whatever you do, we will support you and be with you”. Touching right?!

The next is Wei Jin, or known as “ju mau”. Haha.. That is the name that he got when we are in high school.. The origin of the nick, I’m not too sure. For me, he is friend that is quite irritating at first. But the longer you know him; you will know that he is quite a fun guy to hang out with, because you can always bully him. Haha.. Sorry ya… :’P

For Vee Ee, last time in Form 5, I don’t really know him well until this year, august 2008, I know him better and that makes me want to make him as one of my best friends. He is a kind and caring friend. Although he look fierce when he ain’t smiling, when he smile that time, he is cute. Someone once told me that he is as cute as a pig.. Haha… I think that is from his girlfriend. For a week I had been living with him, I think he is a great friend. He is a guy who can keep secrete, loyal to friends and always look so innocent and blur all the times. Haha!! Wonderful that I have a friend that is so special! Irony for a man who knows a lot of great places to eat and yet did not get fat!

Now, for the upper left, Yu Xuan, I had described before. Can see in the pictures that he dresses to kill? Haha! That is what I meant by dare to try different things!
To the right of Yu Xuan, my dearest cute friend, Jeng Siang, is one of my favorites. He has a nice and beautiful face plus he like to try new hair style. For me, he really is one of the carefree guys! Nothing seems to be bothering him in his life. I think mostly he got some issue to deal with in his life. But he won’t let those emotions to take control of him. He likes to bring people to ‘long kai’ or visit a lot of places in his hometown. Indeed he is a fun guy to hang out with as he knows a lot of entertainment around the area that he lives in.

Here is another friend of mine from 5B. Nick name is “ah pek”.. haha.. Actually Shang Hui do not look like one. Just I don’t know how he got that name. I think that time in for 5, I always have conflict with him. But now, he is a good friend of mine. He is funny as he can tell a lot of jokes, mainly perverted and cold jokes. Haha!! Still he is a joker as he can make people laugh till their stomach pain. What I can remember, he is also a kind friend who always try to help people when people ask for his help.

Look like Vee Ee? Not really right? That is his brother Vee Zien. Although I’m not so close with him, I think he also have quite some similar personality with his brother.. He’s quite a cool and wild guy for me as he seldom talk and smile less.. But as far as I know, he is quite a helpful friend. He is a friendly guy too as when he see you are lonely or ain’t talking much, he will approach and chat with you!

And these are the girls of my class. Ain’t they cute and beautiful? They are sporting and stylish. From the left is Qian Hui o known as “bunny”. This is the nick that I gave her as she look like a cute little bunny and she likes to hop around when get excited. She is one of Lord’s servants and seems to be busy everyday in her life. I think mostly because of the church activities. She is kind and nice and indeed she is a very smart girl.

For Yvonne, last time she was quite tomboyish, but now, look at her, look so beautiful and charming. But she still has the same attitude, choosy and wild. Haha.. Whenever we walk together in a shopping complex, she will disappear like a wind if you did not observe her just for a minute because she is too obsessed with shopping. Whenever she saw something that she likes or attractive, she will just went in and shop without telling anyone.

And for Shin Chin, I’d describe her right after Bryan. She looks nice in that dress, right? She know how to dress and make up as she is quite a modern girl.

The last is Siew Wen. She is one of my hometown friends. I still remember I always bullied her when we were young. That time I just don’t know why I’m having so much fun teasing her and making her angry. Haha.. She is quite a talkative friend as she can talk everything under the sky.

That is all about my great old friends from 5B! The memories that I had with them will forever be crave in my heart. Whenever I’m stress up or sad, thinking of them, I feel so happy and touch as I know that I’m being surrounded by a bunch of pleasant friend that always be there to support me. It’s my pleasure to have you all as my good friends. Be proud of yourself friends!

It’s my 21st BIRTHDAY!!!! Yeah!!! I’m 21 year old!!! Never in my life have I expected anyone to celebrate it for me, as on 26th of august was my flight to Ukraine. The joyfulness that I had that time cannot be described… what I know was, I’m so touched till I felt like crying. The feeling just keeps on pouring out within me. Deep within my heart, my soul was crying out loud, saying “FRIENDS, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH”!!! While my heart was still pounding fast, I felt like hugging them and gave each one of them a kiss.

It was a surprise birthday party thrown by my newly met friends! I never expected them to know that night was my birthday and as all of them were busy with the course night, I don’t think they will be able to throw me a party. Luckily I don’t have any heart disease. If I do, I think I’ll be dead by now as it’s really a surprise party!

Out of sudden, the light was off and what I saw was Pei Ling carrying a cake. That time I was stunned, staring at them with a blur mind. I cannot believe that was the cake for me!

And this is the first time that I get a birthday cake written “FRIENDSHIP FOREVER” on it. It’s such a beautiful cake. Although I’m so disappointed that I ani’t celebrating my 21st birthday with my family, I’m still so grateful and happy that I am able to celebrate it with my friends!

No matter its old or new friends, all of you are my wonderful and great friend. Although in this world I have my great God and my dearest family, without your existence in my life, I fell like a part of me is missing. Friends are something that is equally important in my life. Thanks you friends for being a part of my life and memory!!! Love you all. I pray that God will always cover you in His blessing!! Till we meet again, please take care! God bless!!

All About My New friends

It had been a week since I arrived in Ukraine… Streams of memories just creep into my mind as I stared at this picture that I took with my newly meet friends in a place call as Serdang. I still remember when I just arrived in Malaysia on July 10th; Vee Ee bought me to his rented house that night. And for that night, I didn’t talk much because I was way too tired and I don’t really know them well… I stayed in his house for 3days. In that 3days, Vee Ee brought me to eat a lot of nice foods and visited a lot of places in Serdang. One of the event that I cannot forget until now was the time where he brought me to Jusco (a shopping complex) along with his friends. The 1st thing that they did was buy some buns and filled up their empty stomach… in my mind, I think “oh no, not buns again”. Haha… they didn’t know that I don’t really want to have anything that deal with buns for my breakfast, as in Ukraine, I’m sick of buns. Kindly, they offered me some buns, and I rejected it politely. Looking at them eating the buns happily, I felt so hungry. I can’t do anything also since I’m new here. What can I do is just looking at them, enjoying their breakfast.. haha.. funny right? :P

The time when I really knew them better was a week before my fight to Ukraine. That time Vee Ee was busy dating with other girl. And that was when I had a chance to go out with his housemate. Chong, Heng, Hoon and me went out shopping for clothes in Midvalley. And I suggested KFC for our lunch as I didn’t had any chance to enjoy the meal that I yearn for since I arrived in Malaysia. So, they brought me for KFC in Midvalley. It’s a great meal though! J because all of us eat until we feel like vomiting. Haha.. So, after the delicious meal, we headed for shopping… that is how I got to know 3 of them well…
And in that rented house, Vee Ee have another housemate name as Tze Wei(I can remember his name well because in Ukraine, I have a friend name as Tze wei). As what I can remember , he is one guy that like to fooling around. I knew him he is the only one in Vee Ee’s house that reply me in English when I speak with him. Then every day when I walk pass his room, I’ll just start chatting with him in English. It’s fun though as I can sharpen up my English and I don’t really crack my head finding for words.. He is sporting and funny as well.

And for Pei Chin and Pei Ying, another two cute housemate of Vee Ee, I knew them because they always joking around with me. For Pei Chin, she always stay in that rented house and at night, she will joke around with me… Sure enough I also like to chat with her because she always makes me laugh till my stomach pain. As I cannot really remember her name, so, I give her a cute name, Valentino… haha.. whenever she online and I asked who I’m chatting with, she’ll use this name and in a flash, I know that I her.. J. Pei Chin is funny girl. She will fool around with me if I want to fool around with her. She is just a carefree girl… funny and cute..

Now, For Vee Ee and his girlfriend, it’s always fun for me to hang around them… Although sometimes I feel like I’m disturbing them, but listening to their conversation, it always makes me laugh. Vee Ee as usual, is a kind and funny friend. He took care of me when I stayed over in his house. He brought me to eat a lot of nice foods, shopping, and chat with me very day. Indeed he leaves a huge impact in my life. It’s great to have a nice and caring friend like him J!!!! For his girlfriend, until now I still cannot remember her name (sorry ya!!!) as she didn’t really told me her name..haha.. But I always call her “leng lui”.. She is a friendly girl too.. I think just for the 1st time when I met her, she just started to chat with me as if I’m her friend… haha.. that is friendly… every time when I’m out with both of them, she will always tease Vee Ee. Pity on Vee Ee.. haha..

And for the last person, Hui Wei, or known as a course queen. I still remember that time when I challenge her to blow a balloon. The fastest person to burst the balloon, he/she is the winner and the looser must treat something nice to the winner… and for sure I win the battle. But she didn’t want to admit the victory that I had and keep on inflating the balloon. Among all the friends, she is a stubborn one. Haha.. and funny too. Great to hang around a “wild” and energetic girl… J
This is one of the great memories that I had with them when I was in Malaysia for the past few weeks. Indeed all of them play a wonderful part in my life. Friends are like a hidden treasure chest. You won’t know how great treasure the chest hold until you make the effort to dig out the chest and open it up. So, for friends, you have to make sure you do your part, put in your effort to know and fellowship with your beloved friends then only you can get the GREATEST TREASURE OF A FRIENDSHIP!!!!

Take care ya all of my dearest friends… I love and miss you all.. God bless!!!
