I'm On the Papers! 我上报啦!

Last Friday, I received a message asking me to check that day's SinChew Daily. I ruffled through the paper and found this.


And then I received another similar message today, except that this time, it's to ask me to check NanYang Siang Pau. There's this on the last page of the local edition.


Cool eh! It's even in colour!


For English readers, this is my rough translation of the SinChew article. Both of them are essentially the same, by the way.

Yeo Wenqi Chinese Calligraphy Exhibition
50 Works on Exhibit from 27th

(Klang, 19th) He's 20, he's handsome, he's cool, he's hot and he's a youngster who just loves Chinese Calligraphy.

Under the close supervision of instructor Mr. Kerk Won Hoo, he has been studying Calligraphy for more than 10 years.

After the many years of living alongside Chinese Calligraphy, Yeo Wenqi seems closer to the arts than his peers. All these years, he has been practicing traditional Calligraphy, as well as experimenting with some modern creations. The 50 artworks featured in this exhibition will showcase his experiences.

This exhibition is held by Klang Gan Association's Art House MoDian. The three-day events will start on the 27th, at the said Art House. It is open to visit from 11am to 4pm.

For enquiries, please call 017 358 0121 or visit

Then and Now

I'm beginning to see more and more proofs that I'm grown up by now.

Last time, I asked people "how was children's day?".

Now, I ask my friends "how was Valentine's?"

People used to ask me "would you like some candy?" and I used to be very happy. Yay, free candy!

Now, the real question I'm looking for is "would you like to go for dinner sometimes?". Candies aren't that satisfying anymore.

Going to movies with parents used to be a good thing to do.

Now I'm not so sure about it.

Last time, playing with boys was considered friendly, and playing with girls was a sign of innocence.

Now, looking at girls will generate rumours. Looking at guys will be much worse.

Sigh. I still can't believe that some of my friends have already hit their 20s.

And no I haven't!!!

How I Plan to Spend Valentine's

Well everybody has a plan for the day. Let's see. Hmmm.

I personally it's just nice and romantic to go shopping with your loved ones, isn't it? You walk her into a fashion store, and gently brush your hands on hers as she pick a nice dress. When she comes out of the changing room wearing the beautiful outfit, you put your arms around her waist, checking if the size fits.

After that you walk to a dimly lit restaurant, and order a table for two. When dessert arrives you carefully cut a small piece of your cheesecake and spoon it into her mouth, playfully ignoring her protests that the cake would make her fat.

Then you enter the cinema for a romantic film together. You share your popcorns with her. When she cries, you lend her your shoulder. If she's cold, you invite her to sit on your lap to stay warm together.

On the way home, she complains about her sore feet and you immediately sit her down. Carefully taking off her high heels, you then massaging her smooth limbs. And if it doesn't work, you carry her all the way home.

There you bid goodnight to her, and you leave happily, knowing that she's watching with satisfaction at you from her bedroom window as you do so.

Flawless, isn't it? I'm so going to execute it and make sure I have an unforgettable Valentine's.

Well with a single twist.

I'll be doing all of it alone.

Or maybe I'll just stay home.

My Disgusting Things

Whenever you meet me, be careful not to make contact with the following several items. Excluding the obvious, such as underpants, of course.

1. Backpack

My loyal Body Glove backpack is three years old now. Throughout the three years, it has followed me, through the rain and the sun, wherever I go. The Malaysian hot sun and my tendency to walk a lot naturally means it er, gets as wet as I do when I sweat. I also place my bag on the floor quite frequently, and I usually end up stepping some parts of it or kicking it by accident.

What's more, I don't wash it that frequently.

I mean, I rarely wash it.

OK fine. I have never washed it.

2. Belt

Whenever I'm wearing my jeans, I have a "spiderweb" belt with me. I've been wearing it on daily basis for more than a year now. Well as long as it stays with my pants, it's clean.

The problem happens when I take my pants off. The undone belt is so long it trails on the floor. I need to take extreme care it does not happen.

Why? Imagine you're trying to shit in a Malaysian public toilet, and you'll know why.

3. Wallet

Which grown up person on earth doesn't carry a wallet or purse with him/her everytime? One dirty thing about wallet is money. I've heard that cash is too dry for microorganism to grow, yet I'm disgusted at the sight of hawkers handling money and food interchangeably without washing their hands in between. I mean, the money could have been picked up anywhere. From rubbish dump. From the toilet floor.

From so close to my privates.

One more thing is I never hold my wallet close to my head. 'Cause you know why? It has absorbed pretty much of my sweat from my groins.

4. Glasses

This is one thing I really hate. Why can't I have 20/20 vision? Can get rid of it forever.

My glasses are over 5 years old now, and other than turning urea-yellow after sucking in much of my sweat, there are these algae growing at joints, and I always had the trouble trying to remove them.

I sometimes wash my glasses (now this is not a lie, I swear), but the optician said not to use soap (I used to use) as it washes away the many complicated layers of the lenses.

Too bad.

5. Legs

Come on. It is common sense not to touch a guy's legs! I mean, look at all the football players and their thick, muddy, sweaty, and hairy legs. Maybe it's kind of a good thing I don't have to attend first aid duties for football matches anymore.

But I still don't understand why some people are so fascinated by my legs. Apparently because I have lots of leg hair.

And don't ever get your heads near my feet if I happened to have just taken off my socks.

I think that's enough disgusting things about me.

I have a bad feeling that I'm spending this Valentine alone.

One suggestion from the teacher. One night to consider. Every weekend's effort. Six months' preparation. Ten years' experience.

My personal Chinese Calligraphy exhibition is finally taking shape!
