A surprise entry

Note: This entry is written upon a request from a friend.

A friend for me is...

Someone whom I can always depend on,
Someone whom I can always go to for advices,
Someone who is willing to offer helping hands...

All in all, a friend means more than just all the above. A friend is always willing to go an extra mile to brighten your day.

I bet this entry will be kind of a surprise for this friend of mine whom I am going to mention later on.

Looking back, I come to realization that we've known each other for more than 6 years now (and still counting) but never in my blogging life have I mentioned anything about him before. Haha... Okay, I admit, I'm kinda heartless but then again, I don't think he needs my help to promote himself because he's always been popular that's why there are people who want me to do an entry about him.

Okay, let's see... this friend of mine is very special, yes, special in his own ways because...

1. He loves to pose...


2. Again, posing is in his list...


3. He loves to make funny faces...


Despite of all those above statements, can you believe it that he's shy? Yes, very shy as in SHY but it's italicized shy. Hehe... You should have gotten what I'm trying to say if you guys know him.

And now, put your hands together and let's welcome this shy guy. Lemme introduce to you to the greatest friend of all - Chung Siang!

Basically, we knew each other like 6 years ago and it was through internet. Well, don't ask me how did I get to know him because honestly, I can't remember since my memory deteriorates with passing time. I only got to meet him like two years after I've known him but before that did we exchange pictures? Err... I can't remember...

So, in June 2005, I finally met Chung Siang in person after all those years of chatting, emailing and SMS-ing each other. I went through my photo albums and found a picture taken with him back then.

Shaddup!

I know some of you are laughing non-stop now because I used to look so FAT and RETARDED back then in 2005. I used to be so FUGLY and now, I'm pretty ugly!

Now you can throw eggs at my ugliness! Ah, I always got diverted whenever I talk about myself. Let's move on...

I remember, during the first half year I was in university, Chung Siang was the only friend I always turned to. Okay, you guys might wonder how did I turn to him when I was at KL while he was at Kuching? Well, easy - there's a gadget called mobile phone! Haha... Lame. He would call occasionally and asked how was my life in university and at the same time, telling me jokes after jokes to cheer my days.

After my visit to Kuching in June, Chung Siang came to Sibu for a visit somewhere in November. Well, he was so lucky because I was around to bring him around. Hahaha... I'm good at rhyming. I introduced him to a few close friends of mine.

Mr. Chung Siang, you remember the dinner at Sibu Esplanade, right?

This guy told my friends all the stories of my embarrassing moments when we first met in June. Aiks... I was so damn embarrassed lor because after I sent him back to his cousin's place, Melissa came to me and asked, "You really did that?"

So damn paiseh until I've to wear a mask to go out for a week...

But then, the good thing about Chung Siang is that after he kinda made me mad, he'd always call and apologize - something like, "Sorry, I was just pulling your legs."

Since I was and am vulnerable to apologies, as everyone knows, I never got mad at him of course because I was and am such a nice person. Hahaha... Laugh all you can. How to get mad with such a cute friend like Chung Siang? Haha... He'd make me smile and laugh again after that.

Ah, haha... But then, don't be fooled by that so-called innocent-looking face of his. Looks can be deceiving, you know? Hiaks, hiaks, hiaks... Chung Siang gossips as much as a lady. Putting it in another way, he talks a lot - truly a lot. Not to say gepo but then, he just talks a lot because first of all, everyone agrees that he's a smooth-talker and secondly, he just possesses the power of persuasion.

Then again, in the same year of December, courtesy of Lydia a.k.a. Mrs. Chung Lin, I went to Kuching - yes, for once again. This time, I made Chung Siang bring me everywhere. Hiaks...

~ December 2005 - CS and I ~

Enough say about our stories, let's see... this friend of mine has been a place where I seek advices, be it in the past or even now. He's been a very supportive friend during those years when I finally broke down because I went through depressions after depressions of being looked down at because of my weight issue.

Years have gone by now when I look back on the first day we got to meet each other... Technically, it means I'm getting old. Haha...

Anyway, Chung Siang, if you're reading this, I'm very grateful to have a friend like you!
