24 Weird JayWalk Things - Part 1

Got tagged by OLLie to do this one and man, this is taking much longer than I thought! As such, I shall be breaking this meme into 2 parts and will try to finish the second half by tomorrow. Siong!

1. I can use the chopsticks with either hand although my right-hand's dexterity is some what rusty after many years of non-practice.

2. Speaking of being left-handed, I may be a south-paw but I play pool and golf right-handed.

3. Speaking of sports, I was a keen footballer in school and everybody thought that I was really good at it when in fact I was not. I just happened to be at the right place, right time for me to put the balls into the back of the nets all these while. I was like the accidental top scorer. There was this particular game when I was in Sec 2. I jumped for the ball in my attempt to try to head it towards the goal but the jump was so badly miscued that I totally missed it. Strangely, I still managed to score the goal when the ball bounced off my backside and into the net past a bewildered goalkeeper.

4. Speaking of secondary school, there were 4 places where you can find me studying for my O-Levels. McDonalds at YMCA and Far East Plaza, Burger King at the basement of Shaw Centre (next to the old Lido cinema) and the canteen at the Ministry of Environment. Anywhere but home.

5. Speaking of Shaw Centre, I got myself into the newspapers and had my 15 minutes of fame as early as 12 years old. I kena food poisoning at the Mayflower Restaurant there on the 5th floor.

6. Speaking of 12 years old, I was run over by a motorbike with 2 people on it when I was a kid. Miraculously, I still managed to get up and walked back to the hotel unscathed.

7. Speaking of hotels, I broke the bed during my last stay at Dusit Thani Hotel (Bangkok) when I was jumping non-stop on it. I was in primary school then when foot of the bed snapped. Dad had to sneak a telephone book underneath the bed to support it, before hastily checking-out.

8. Speaking of primary school, I made it to the school teams for volleyball, basketball and table-tennis. As a result, my grades faltered and I was forced to give up all 3 sports.

9. Speaking of table tennis, I was perhaps the only guy who arranged a football match in the library. Yes, we played a football match in the library! It was the time between after the exams and before the start of the year-end school holidays. I, being the head librarian, had a set of the keys to the library where I sneaked in the whole gang and ONE table-tennis ball. The game lasted only 5 minutes when one of the guys squashed the table tennis ball when he accidentally stepped on it.

10. Speaking of the time between after exams and before holidays, our class would turn into a gambling casino despite warning from the school authorities. I guessed nobody gave a rat's ass.

11. Speaking of gambling in school, our St John storeroom was our mahjong room.

12. Speaking of St John, the tekan sessions during my Leadership Training Course (LTC) of 6 months was so tough that by the time I got to the real thing i.e. NS BMT, it was a cakewalk.

... to be continued.

"jump until the bed bee-cha" Wtf. Act cute sia.
Anyway, volleyball + table-tennis + basketball is freaking pro lor. I can understand the grades part because I was in tennis and basketball. It was hard not to be playing and playing and playing. And the only time I'd be studying is when there's rain. Hahaha.

OLLie: Not hyperactive. Just active in sports and games.
BTW, it's not bee-char. It's pichar.

ZheBin: I slipped from 2nd in class to 7th to 12th, which explained my folks' panic.

BTW for me, when raining hor, still can play table tennis. :P

Sunflower: Perhaps you are right with all the nut-cases like us in the classrooms.
BTW, we are darn proud of our lunacy. :)
