The Mirror Image Of Myself

8 Random Facts About Me

Posted in Tags by zenmaster on August 16, 2007

I’ve been tagged by Ting Tit Lei.

The rules of this tag:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. List eight (8) random facts about yourself.
3. Tag eight people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving them a comment on their blogs.

  1. I have a fetish for redhead. Yes, chicks with ginger hair, they turn me on. Read my journal entry on my fetish.
  2. I’m a very frugal person. Coming from lower middle-class background, it’s a norm for my family members to save it for rainy days, but it doesn’t mean I’m a stingy bastard to the point that I sacrifice everything during special events like birthday parties, dating, travel, marriage, funeral and Chinese New Year. Just control the spending lah! Don’t overspend, but don’t be kiam siap, either. Spend in moderation.
  3. I’ll buy Proton as my first car over Peroduas, rebadged Korean cars or CKD Japanese cars. Yes, I’ve faith in Proton already, despite its past bad records, faulty car parts and stupid tax. Since the management has changed, quality control is improved and less complains recieved from its buyers. Will Proton become part of Volkswagen AG? Will government sacrifice the national pride by abolish the excise duty and giving away all the stakes? We’ll see.
  4. I would like to be an autodidact and polyglot. Thanks to Interweb, I can find information for free such as wikis, open coursewares and productivity blogs. Nevertheless, gaining knowledge has its risk. I’m preoccupied with Google-ing, Digg-ing and Wiki-ing and leave revisions, tutorials and assignments aside as if studies is not important for me. I’m also risking myself from being heckled by others with derogatory names like Mr. know-it-all, smartaleck and smartypants. Well, better than being ignorant, am I right? Gaining knowledge is a lifelong process afterall. It doesn’t stop at getting a degree or obtaining As.
  5. I love to get high on nicotine and caffeine. On the other hand, I hate the feeling of getting pissed drunk. It’s okay to drink socially. Being tipsy is good because it miraculously transform myself from an introvert into an extrovert, which is good. My gripe for alcohol is the feeling of getting puked, liver damage and hangover, which is bad.
  6. I’m all for minimalism, be it web designing, grooming, furnishing, cooking or stuff like that. I don’t like complexity, it’s so messy and hard to maintain.
  7. <NARCISSIST MODE> Call me vain or what, History is my forte. Yes, I’m good at History subject. I never got anything lower than 80 before</NARCISSIST MODE>. History is just as easy as ABC, except that some of the information that we’ve learned in high school is crappy and misleading, especially the 513 race riot. What to do, government propaganda.
  8. Contrary to popular belief, my height is not 6 feet. I’m actually 5-feet & 11-inches and stop growing already. An inch/3cm more to become 6-feet-er. But am happy with my height. It’s a bitch to be a tall person, to be truthful.

This tag is getting stale and trite. That’s why, I’m not going to tag this to anyone. The infection ends here. But, if you want to volunteer yourself to do this tag, be my guest. 🙂

Insignificant Things In High School Life

Posted in Tags by zenmaster on August 7, 2007

This meme (pronounced meem, not mimi or mem) phenomenon is infectious. The phenomenon is worse than AIDS outbreak. No wonder people hate to do memes. I’m not spared from the meme outbreak. This time I’ve been infected by Rabbit. The theme of the tag is naughty stuff I’ve done in high school, as simple as that (big deal!). My ability of storytelling and writing a long entry seems to be far-fetched but it’s not impossible for me to do it. That’s why, I’m gonna dissect it into 4 series of unfortunate events (pun intended).

The rules marked in red font are the one that I’ve to abide. Am not allowed to flout the tag rules (which I flouted it in my first tag) and replace it with my innate version of unwritten law. Meh.

1. Write about one of your naughty moments in secondary school.
2. Story must not be shorter than 20000 words. Jk. Just don’t make it too brief lah.
3. Tag bloggers who you think have really interesting stories to tell. Don’t go “ah I won’t tag anyone”.

During high school time, I was part of the clique (not triad, mind you) called Kokkers. It’s also known as Parti Perikatan because it has uncanny resemblance of multicultural political alliance during 60’s (hope you’ll get my drift). Yes, we do have our own blog, so do pay a visit, ya. Although we’re parted ways already for different commitments, but we do have yamcha sessions once in a blue moon, with banters and chatters going on. Moving on to my stories.

  • What my friends and I had done was we stole T’s exercise book and cooked up the story. Well, actually he didn’t wrote it all. What happened actually is that he only wrote the first paragraph before he could finish it. One of the kokkers stole it and pass around and we all added up our own versions of the story laced with necrophilia, BDSM and sexual innuendo. English teacher, Mrs. Chew was dumbfounded with T’s masterpiece, so she called T to explain to her. Much to his disgust, he had gotten emo. Without hesitation, he pointed his fingers to us. Uh, oh! We got caught red-handed, but we don’t blame it at T though, we deserved to be punished after got kantoi-ed. Needless to say, we were awarded punished with 10 demerit points. 30 more points for us to get 2-weeks suspension. 😈
  • This is by far the naughtiest stuff I’ve ever done. Teacher had gotten herself an MC. No class for 3 hours. Bored a horrible death. Nothing to chat about. All of sudden, one of the kokkers came out with his idea of stacking the tables and chairs as high as Petronas Twin Towers. So, we joined the frenzy. Uncannily, it looks like a giant Jenga in real life. Because of the wobbly and lopsided structure, we had a bad, bad feeling that it was going to toppled by itself. Déjà vu! It dropped like Jenga and the loud thud sound can be heard, not just 3 doors down, but one whole block. Ditto, we got awarded ourselves with bad karma/demerit points worth 10 for the naughty stuff that we have done. Nevermind, it could be worse. We got ourselves pinched in the nipples by Cikgu Sajoli (cikgu disiplin in charge and our accounting teacher). God knows how excruciating the pain was. 😥
  • The final story revolves around the final day of SPM. Tempers flared as heat arised, mind trembled while waiting for the agony and torment to be ended. We burned all the wretched buku latihan as a sign of happiness. We even chanted our own mantra (maybe). Students and teachers were dumbfounded with utter disgust at our pagan druid-like behaviour. Felt so blessed that time, like in seventh heaven. Then, we head over to Desa Setapak for a 5-hours of non-stop fragging fest at cybercafe called Tbun (or was it Surfnet?). Best siut. Quote from the Kokkers “Best like fuck can die.“, unquote.
  • If you’re my best friend or classmate, you’ll noticed that I was a quiet indifferent person and a lunatic fringe who abhorred anything mainstream and trendy such as boyband and Hitz.fm. I also had a penchant for Führer Hitler, Chairman ROFLMAO and spraying out the water ala-Triple H. Because of that, I’ve got bullied, heckled, teased and annoyed. Now, I’m no longer a judgemental person. Albeit being a quiet person, I did a naughty suff like Operasi Pisang and playing firecrackers in school compound. If you were my classmate, you’ll find that I was so generous enough to let you all copy my answers during Sejarah exams without getting caught by teacher.

That’s the end of my high school stories. Now is the disease-spreading time. I’m gonna spread my viral meme to the following people: Cincau Hangus, Jann, Tze Lun, Faisal and Grace. Whether they wanna do the tag it or not, I couldn’t be bothered. It’s not like I’m going to butcher them with my machate.
