Simon Ho My Brother

"Simon Ho My Brother"

I've given this post the name based on the new movie "Bruce Lee My Brother".
Like the movie, this post is a special post just for my eldest brother, Simon Ho Sau Man. Today is his 27th birthday.

In a blink of an eye,
you've gone through so much. From a rich boy to a troubled student to a alcoholic to a family man to who you are today. Its been almost 10 years since you've given up your future for the sake of this family - giving up architecture course and started working at 19 when our family is in deep crisis.

Perhaps, without you, I might not be who I am today.
Some people might say you've given up studying because you've lost interest in studies. But two months ago, while I was packing up the stuff in the store room, I saw your course work. It is hard to believe that you've lost interest in it. Your writing and drawings are much better than what I could've imagine. Those work are from your heart and soul. Is that "lost of interest"?

Screw what others think about you.
You will are and will always be one of my best motivation in life. I remember you said while we were on the way to Terengganu for your Rocket soy sauce sales, "I don't hope much. Just hope you guys(Kyle, Sam and I) study well". That will stay in my heart forever.

Perhaps you've given up in many things including life.
You've done many things that broke our hearts. But you've suffered, maybe too much. You spilled many things when you were drunk. Nobody realise that. I do. You're the best man next to dad. I thank God for bestowing me with a brother like you. I could never possibly repay what you've sacrificed. Thank you for being there.


Hopefully we've gone through the hardest of trial and tribulations.

Ipoh-Penang Trip

Just came back to KL after goin to Ipoh and Penang for class trip...
It was fun. Full of laughter and craziness. However, this is just a short post bout it. Gotta collect all the photos before going for the details.

The trip from Kuantan to Ipoh is really tiring.
The next time I go Ipoh, Imma stay at KL first. Took 8 hours to reach. Freaking. Sit until my butt hurts. Slept at Jian's place and missed the Nga Choi Kai session... ><

Woke up at 7 the next day to eat dim sum.
Then took off to Penang. It was not very long to travel from Ipoh to Penang. We stayed at Gurney hotel. The place was nice, with swimming pools, a beach volleyball courst, table tennis and gym. The best thing is, its dirt cheap! 200 bucks shared by 1,2,3,4...15 people! Less than 20 bucks per day. But some of us gotta sleep on the floor lo...

We did a lot of stuff at Penang.
Words can't describe how its like for some. Wait for the photos. =P We visited very few places but ate awful lot of food.. Had laksa, kuey tiow, cendol, many many la.. All thanks to Pei Chin's cousin who bring us around. =D
After the trip, Piak Piak even send a Swan to deliver us ham sap kai (salted Chi Gein)... =P

Kev and Mun Hoong was like scavengers . Nonetheless, the chicken died for some value. Now that I'm alone at hostel, kinda miss all of them. Hope everyone will do fine in the future and we can hang out some time.
ps; I'll be back for the Nga Choi Gai and be friends with Max(Jian's tiny angry dog)

TARC - End of another chapter in life

Time really do flies...
Especially when you start to enjoy what you're doing. Without realising, its been 1 1/2 year since I've set my foot on the grounds of TARC. Little to regret about but whole lot new experiences rushed into my tiny pocket aka the icky gooey lump beneath my skull.
Coming here with no friends at all was real tough.
The first few days was really sickening. Lucky me, I've met a few people who happens to stay somewhere near my place. Slowly after that, I get more and more friends here. Even some from Diploma! Gotta say, TARC is not as bad as they say.
We do have a lot of "cina apeks" and speaks "cina" all the way.
But hey, we have some of the brightest students here too! Finger pointing at myself... =P Nah, joking... But its true that some of the people here are smart asses, minus the command in English. The thing is, even when we are all Cinas, we don't mind having Melayu and India join us in our studies.
Just as we get to know everyone more,
the time factor kicks in. We are going to depart already. Sad case... Well, at least we have fond memories being together, doing crazy things, chilling and just laugh our asses out loud. I'll never forget all of you.
Thanks for being in my life.
We have crossed each other's path and may never return to this junction, but I know there are these "cool" people in my life once...
Good luck in your life la! =D
