Sunflower's Hor Kai Siao

 I was chatting with Sunflower earlier when she mentioned that Yahoo Messenger now got a chat (as in IRC type chatroom) feature. It was something that I was unaware of, given that I am a Trillian Pro user to chat with friends on Yahoo & MSN and as such, not really in tune with the bells and whistles that the present version of Yahoo has to offer. I guessed much has changed from the early versions of Yahoo to what it is now.

Essentially, what this chat feature does is to allow you, with the same exisiting account log in, to access IRC-like chat rooms.

Anyway, Sunflower was saying how people in there were so desperate and I simply assumed she was referring to all the guys in there seeking young maiden prey.

It's been ages since I last touched IRC (10 years?). Feeling a pang of nostalgia and I decided to go in and check out the present scene.

Here's some background information to describe how IRC was in the early days, in order for you to see the contrast with my encounter today. I was a regular in channel #Singapore on GalaxyNet back then. In #Singapore,  there will always be people in there busy chatting in the open area. On weekend nights, it can have as many as 40 people chatting together. To join in is quite simple. Just get in, read the ongoing conversation for a few minutes to figure what's going on and then jump in. Easier if you are a recognised regular there.

Anyway, as I entered this Yahoo chatroom for the first time, I naturally made a beeline for the room that says "Singapore Global Chat" and pick the one with the biggest number of people in it. Thinking that it would still be like how I left it years ago, I was wrong.

There was nothing in there. Not even a squeak.

It was quiet like a library, closed on public holiday.
Just when I was about to log off, a small window popped up. It was a private chat with a "Hi!" and "ASL, please."

"ASL"? Simi lai eh?

Not wanting to appear like a bladdy swakoo, I quickly jumped over the wikipedia and check.

ASL =  Age, Sex, Location.

Orhhh...... aiyah.... say earlier mah.... basket. I thought what.
Not wanting to chat since I was on the way out, I put "35, Male, Ch1na", thinking if my age don't turn them away, my location would. After all, in IRC era, anything above 30 is past expiry date liao and Ch1namen aren't exactly getting very good press back home.

As I was drafting a polite exit farewell to click send, she typed again.

"Do you know Hindi?"

I was like "WHAT???", in my mind when I typed, "Er.... you mean Tamil?"

"No, Hindi is different from Tamil." She typed.

"Not to me." I replied.

A few more lines were exchanged and I noticed that her English wasn't very good. Ah Lian standard also win her type and I asked for her ASL (staydee lah... I also know how to say ASL!)

"24, Female, India"

No wonder. English funny funny.

"Would you like to start friendship with me?" She asked.

To me that the equivalent of my "小姐, 要不要做朋友?" when I kachow my female friends. Karma came knocking today and it was 报应 at the door.

I was like "errrr......... ahhhh........ errrrrr........ ahhhhh........" when she typed again.

"Let me call you.", referring to the voice chat function of Yahoo Messenger.

Aiyoh..... lim peh panic liao!!!

"Wait. Wait. Let me reboot my computer." and I hastily logged off.

iShy lah.

 IRC and messengers used to be separate entities but this Yahoo thing has integrated both together. So after my exit from the chat room, I remained online as I screaming bladdy panic at LittleDowager*.

Guess what?

I keep getting messages from her on my Yahoo Messenger, despite the fact that I am no longer in the chat room.

Apparently both Yahoo Chat and Yahoo Messenger uses the same userid and she could simply message me by just sending to me userid.


I ignored the message and put her on "Block". 5 minutes later, another message popped up. She used a another account to message me since I blocked her previous one. So I "Block" again.

Another 5 minutes later, another message from another account.  In a span of an hour, I blocked 5 accounts from the same person. Wah lau eh... Lim peh tio scared!!

Well, then messages have subsided for now.

Time to lay low over the next few days. I shall put myself on invisible for a week to let the smoke blow over. Message me on MSN instead or just try your luck sending me a message while I am on invisible mode.

Thanks ah! Sunflower. Hor kai siao..... -_-"

p.s. Eh Deek, what was the phrase that you used that tickled the Indian carpark auntie so much? Tan-Kar-Chi?
