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…
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…
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.
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!!!
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!!!
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!!!
