Reminiscing the past


Reached home at 9.45pm today. Tiring day. Getting closer to the year end, the more things need to be done and taken care of. In few days I’ll be 24. (Yes I’m that young still bwahahaha!) Looking back, man I missed the old days. Especially those memorable days in my life. Playing them my mind whenever I am not in a cheerful mood (which is rare because I’m happy all the time.. hehe)and I will smile everytime I think of those days. Such a nice feeling. Do you remember your old days? I do. I still remember…..

The 1st day when I started schooling. My mom brought me to the school, St Joseph Miri. Just 50 metres from the place we stayed. Still remember she asked me if I need her to accompany me, which I said no. So she left me there alone after telling be to be good and quiet. And there I was, sitting quietly in the front row of the class.

I don’t remember if I made any friends on the 1st day but I do remember seeing a lot of my classmates crying. Time in primary school passed very fast, and the next thing I knew, we were moving to Sarikei. I was 9 years old at the time. Yes, I remember clearly the day I started my Standard 4 in new school. SRK Abang Haji Matahir, Sarikei. I was the only Chinese student in the school with another girl, which is my younger sister. And when I sat for UPSR another Chinese student came to the school, which is my younger bro. We were the only non-bumi in the school. And that’s it. Haha!

So I was kinda famous at that time for being the one and only Chinese student there.Β Hmm, I don’t know if now, there are any other non-bumi studying there. I guess that’s how I get to mix along with other races quite well, even today. I’m happy to have many good friends from different races and I have no problem communicating with them..

Then, after UPSR, I went to KTDTH Bujang, Miri to continue my secondary school. Since the place is so far from my house in Sarikei, I decided to stay in hostel. Staying in hostel is a lot fun! And there I meet Cibol πŸ™‚ I used to join him during short holidays whenever I didn’t go back Sarikei, so I lepak with him at his house in Bintulu or longhouse in Niah πŸ˜€ Best… best.. That’s how we become good friends.

Lots of ‘interesting’ activities we did during our time in hostel. Stealing friend’s love letters, went fishing at the cliff behind the hostel, picnic, swimming there although is strictly prohibited πŸ˜› (We could get suspended from hostel if get caught) Some of those who have bigger bawls, they went along the shore line to other side of the cliff there is a shop there to buy cigarettes. Not easy feat to go there, swim.. walk.. swim.. maybe about 1-2km. I never join them, the reason is because I don’t smoke haha! And I’m a lousy swimmer… I miss playing soccer every evening like last time.

Everyday, 4pm you will hear clacking sounds, people walking on their boot at the corridor to the soccer field. And the seniors will go room by room, ‘Hoi!! .. turun turun.. main bola.. Apa tidur jak jak tok.. Bangun bangun!!’ (Hoi!! Come down, let’s play soccer.. Don’t keep on sleeping, Wake up wake up) So fun, we kind of addicted to soccer at that time.. even when it was raining we still play, only to be stopped by the warden.

Ah wardens.. haha! Rambo..yes, that’s one of the nickname we gave for our beloved warden.. and we were creative enough to create a lot of fun stories to suit his rambo-ish character kekekkee… Oh yea, talking about Rambo, reminded me of this one guy, a year older senior when I was form 1. He’s bit weird. We called him ‘Penyiasat’ (detective?)Β because of his obssesion with investigation stories, techniques and craps. He even had his own gang.. rakan penyiasat haha! Duh I can’t stop laughing thinking of them…. hahahahhahahahahahhahahahaa!

Cibol, if you are reading this.. hahahahahaha! You see, he and his gang will always meet up after studying session (7pm-9.45pm), sit under a tree and he started to give his ‘insights’ on things, his connections with some important people (he was 14? 15 at that time.. what the fark!) those shits. He always try to sound all smart and serious, he wear cap all the time, and so his followers haha! They always wear windbreaker or jacket, then hands in pocket, wandering in the school area after everyone sleeping. Making rounds lah konon konon…. πŸ˜€ The wardens seem to like him a lot…

To be continued…
