Your baby boy is not retarded and have a perfect lip

Baby boy!!!It was a fine day, both of my parents and three very young uncles who were at the back of a Volkswagen Beetle, which dad borrowed from his friend, was on their way back to KK. I was at that time in my mom womb for 5 months, oblivious to what is happening outside of my safe heaven. Back then dad was in the force, was driving fast because he was running late. I think we stayed at the officer’s quarters at Kepayan.

I think some of us know that a Beetle would skid from its track when you’re cornering. If you don’t know about it, well you do now, hence why those old Beetle enthusiast like their wheel wide, to give more traction. The car that my dad drove that day was also having a little problem. Don’t ask me what, even dad have forgotten about it. But it’s still clear in mom’s memory.

I think dad must have made abrupt cornering or he could be trying to avoid something because right after that, the car turns 180 degrees. Not only that, while it made that turn, the car practically flew, yes ladies and gents, it flew, while tumbling upside down three times, on the air, before it landed back on its four wheels. Sounds like I took that directly from a Walt Disney movie starring Herbie the Beetle aren’t I? It’s actually true, mom saw everything.

What was happening inside the car? My dad was busy holding my mom down and myself, my uncles who were at the back was laughing throughout thinking it was a roller coaster ride. I’m dead serious! And mom? Mom was gripping and holding the handle and side of her seat, watching dad holding her down without realising what’s really going on, and hearing my uncles’ laughter. Yup, the event I just told you guys is from mom’s point of view. I’m not questioning what she had told me on my birthday morning yesterday, which I ask her to recall back that incident. I’m just very grateful that I’m 33 this year, still have my family and friends around me.

The danger was not over mind you. A day after that accident, I stopped moving inside moms womb, but I was back kicking again after that, thank god! On 4th April, 1976 at 1:15 in the afternoon, I was brought into this world. Mom was relieved that I was not brain damaged from the accident and dad was relieved I was not cleft lip from the accident. Cleft lip? Yes, according to dad’s race, they believe that when an unborn baby was shaken in the womb, the child would be born with cleft lip. Funny eh? Dad was really concern about my look rather than my brain. Still I’m grateful to my parents who raised me to be what I am today. Thank You!

I have a great birthday yesterday; get lots of birthday wishes, mainly from Facebook. First of all I want to say thank you to Irene for these delicious cakes a week before my birthday.

And for this drawing sketch book. I straight away bought myself an oil pastel colour and art eraser. I’ve wanted to get myself reacquainted with drawing this time usingย oil pastel. I’m also going to get charcoal later on.

My 33th Birthday Present

I would like to say thank you to my friends from Silat Cekak Hanafi Sabah Branch for bringing me out for a game of bowling and later on after that bringing me to Secret Recipe and treating me to a Chocolate Banana cake. After that some of us went to watch Fast and Furious 4, a great movie I tell you! Makes you want to drive like them.

The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesnโ€™t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.
