The 1987 Cover-Up

This is a cover-up that happens back in 1987, not even the government knows about it up until today, which I am about divulge to you all. In case there’s no more update after this, assume the worst. Yes people, this is serious. How do I get to know about this? I was there when it happen. The place in question is Prince Philip Park, Tanjung Aru. I don’t know if they have change the name, but I know the one particular place where the event took place is still there.

On that very day…

I soiled my pants. Yes I did, but nobody around me at that time knows about it.

So I was 11 at that time, a few of my friend and I went to Tanjung Aru to have a little picnic later in the afternoon after school. During that time, my family are staying at Papar and everyday I would wake up really early in the morning to go to school at SK Tanjung Aru. My mom at that time is working with Education Department at Sembulan, and we would go back later in the evening. My school was having two sessions; I was in the morning session. After school that day, my friends plan to have a small picnic at the beach and had invited me to come along. I was having a bit of stomach pain at that time but I went with them despite the pain. It’s either I stayed at my aunt’s home and wait for my parents to pick me up or go out with my friends and have a little fun. So I choose the latter.

My friend was kind enough to bring food and drinks to the beach. We play around, chat and laughing at each other when it started to rain. It was the same time that I NEED to go. We were next to 2nd beach of the park and the public toilet was on 1st beach of the park. So I have to run from one end to the other end to do my business. You have to understand; the public toilet condition at that time was horrible. I have to really pick the cleanest WC among the worst, trying to figure out how I’m going to wash up, in the process, spilled a little on my pants, until I can’t stand it anymore, just pull down my pants and “bombs away”.

Now come the cleaning part. There nothing in the WC to get myself clean. What they have is one big drum full of water and a dipper placed outside. I was thinking, what if someone come in and saw me naked getting out of the WC to get the clean water. But I figure, it’s raining outside so I think it’s safe. So I get myself cleaned. Then 2nd problem, my underwear has been contaminated. I can’t just leave it there because my mom would surely kill me. I can’t clean it and put it in my pocket. It’s embarrassing if I accidently pull it out. So I did the un-thinkable. I wash it and wear it back. Just when I was about to put on my pants, I heard my friends outside came looking for me. I didn’t notice that it took me a long time to do my business. I had to act fast. I pour water on my pants to make it looked wet. That would be a good cover-up story for me. When they saw me, they notice that my pants are wet. When they asked what happened, I said I accidently dropped my pants to the floor. They laugh at me which is good, the bought the cover up. We went back together after that as the rain had stop that time.

Yes, that was the whole cover-up story. I told you even the government didn’t know about this. Why would they want to know about this in the first place? Have I ever accidently soiled my pants after that? Yes I did, but that’s another story.


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 doesn’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.
