darn these jobs.. i was about to write something and along came the task, in which, produced an overwhelming wall that blocked my mirage of my mind as to what i wanted to write about.
right.. lemme search for it for a moment…
oh! got it.. took me 1.51 minutes to remember back
here goes, i was browsing for the calendar a while ago to seek out days for me to relax. and i stumbled upon one that clearly shows school holidays on it. so the school holidays will commence through out Malaysia in just a few more days. so lucky them kids. i remembered my school holidays. well, lets just say that i’m lucky enuf that i get to spend some of my school holidays with my friends around my neighborhoods. i used to lived in Selayang Baru, a village just near Batu Caves, and are on the tracks to be developed into a small town. so i still felt the tradition of kids around neighborhood. i knew almost everyone in 5 miles radius. awesome aight? be it someone we like.. or someone we hate. we knew them up and down. that’s y i like kampung.. i envy people who lives in a kampung. we were joined together because of traditional games and any kind of sports. guli, gasing, karom, tenteng, konda kondi, rounders, badmintons, polis sentri, football, bicycles, kites or wau, hide n seek, mandi sungai or parit, panjat bukit, maybe some fighting, takraw, sepak raga, raga ikan, tangkap belut, mandi lombong, ikan laga [or toman laga ikan laga.. lol] and many more. shesh.. i cudnt have remembered everything. yeah! parents should just let their children play all their might during school holidays. not sending them to tuitions or some extra cdt school. thats damn boring i tell you. thats what happened when i was form3 and form4.. form3 was preparation for PMR; form 4 for SPM. seriously, it got into me.. and it let me down. well, form3 was easy.. Alhamdulillah.. PMR was easy [i think].. but SPM was hard and for me, not getting what i want really stressed me. and spending hours on tuition didnt help at all. well.. at least for me that is. okay. enuf of that, i think.
u might know these sports or games came with their own ‘seasons’. man! one day you’re playing guli [marbles] on your neighbor grounds and u saw another was playing gasing. tomorrow it was gasing season for a week.. then someone found a tennis ball somewhere… then its rounders season.. oh! Pakcik Mat beli karom letak kat bawah pondok dia rehat.. then its karom season.. so on and so forth. i bet some children nowadays dont even know whats konda kondi.. let alone knowing if they ever existed. for some who ever heard of it, they dont know the rules. hush! i pity them so much!~ seronoknye dlu2.. main PS2, main PS3, main Xbox, main Wii? haha! dlu ade micro genius beb.. tapi still go out petang2, main ngn kawan2 lagi sronok.
u pick a bulk-size sand and throw it on your friends window. kalau tak malu cam kitorang dlu.. berdiri ramai2 depan umah orang.. jerit name kawan2, lol! anuuuaaaaar!!! anuuaarrrr!!! bulaaaaattt!! bullaaaaatt!! if it were me, kawan2 panggil kat luar. mula laa jenguk2 kat luar. pastuh tanye mama.. leh kuar tak? “takleh!” she shouted. then ask her again.. “tak boleh mama kate. buat ape main2 ni? keje skolah ape tak buat, dah la main dengan budak2” she added “pegi buat keje skolah tu. kalau tak siap tak boleh keluar” te heck?! by the time school assignment finished, it’ll be night fall already.. no no no!
when she went upstairs or go to the kitchen or something. its time we flee current scene.. kalau mama duk kat ruang tamu gak.. loncat dari verandah.. takpe.. for the sake of fun time. tingkap kene grill dlu.. tak dpt kuar tingkap. balik2 umah mase maghrib kene tibai.. tak pun kene halau kuar balik.. jgn masuk umah selagi mak kate takleh masuk. huhuhu! nanges.. tanak buat lagi… huhuhu…
NOT! besok buat lagi.. lol
fun fun fun.. thats all we had to think. future? dapat masuk asrama bagus? masuk universiti bagus? hahaha! no no no.. tak penting! even if we got all that academic privileges. its all will go to waste. in my time at least.. maybe not now. asrama was fun if u’re a senior. juniors get bullied everyday. same goes to university. but thank God i went to UTP. the seniors were open-minded by the time we entered. and we did better than those seniors.. way better.. i dont know why.. but we from our age of time.. as i hear it from others too.. we started to play nice.. so nice to juniors that the juniors would be nicer to their juniors.. takde puak2, takde inferior people amongst us.. we knew each other more than we know our own siblings.
if u ever go to UTP; i tell you this, your goal should be because you want to make lotsa friends.. not studying. lol! well.. might as well study too.. i heard the lecturers are better nowadays, save for just finger- counted when i was there. in my time, people looked down to Information System students.. but as of now.. IS students are more successful than other students. not IT.. not Engineering features.. in term of careers, that is. do not under estimate the power of analyst. we were taught how to create, how to manipulate data. you’d be surprised how far we can govern resources. be it simple as you can see.
lari topik lagi…
so [where were we?], night comes in our villages. it doesnt stop just after playing. Maghrib in mosque is another must. haha! lepas semayang berjemaah Maghrib, main main lagi.. selalunye polis sentri or kejar kejar.. here’s the rule of kejar-kejar:
1. u settled with whom to be the ‘it’
2. the ‘it’ will chase anyone else into becoming the next ‘it’ in certain boundaries. or chase them until they sit down or freeze and say ‘twit’ or ‘chop’. if u forget one of those 2.. u’re ‘it’.
3. if the ‘it’ succeeded in making everyone froze or sit down. then everyone have to sit down accept for the ‘it’. and the ‘it’ will to count to 3. anyone who stands earlier than the count or the last to stand after the count.. will be ‘it’
senang je.. selamat bermain.. lol
and setiap Rabu lepas Solat Isya’ ade sedikit jamuan utk tetamu masjid.. hehe! kekadang kuih muih.. kekadang roti canai.. delicious.. if u’re spending the meal with friends, that is.
man.. those were the days. so pity children these days. rasenye derang penah jumpe tak durian belanda? rasenye derang tau tak kite minum tebu dengan gigit tebu? rasenye derang tau tak cara2 main guli? rasanye derang tau tak cemane nak buat wau gune kertas ngn plastik? rasenye derang penah mandi parit tak? rasenye derang penah panjat bumbung jiran senyap2 utk ambik bola rounders? haha!
viva school holidays~~!
