My First Day At PLMGS Series - Part 1 of 3

Thinking of Faith's first day at PLMGS in a few months' time, reminded me of my own first day at PLMGS.

Despite the fact that she will be there as a student and I was there as an instructor, both are/were very much a whole new learning experience for the both of us respectively.

It was a Saturday morning somewhere in 1986 where I took the 165 > 153 > 321 bus route for the very first time from Ulu Pandan to Lorong Ah Soo. I woke up especially early as a result of not knowing how long the journey would take and also didn't want to make a tardy impression of being late on the very first day.

As one would have expected, I arrived a little too early. For a guy who spent the past 9 years in a All-Boys school, I was a nervous wreck inching towards the All-Girls school's main gate.

How do I look?

Is my fly down?

Got vege in my teeth or not?

WHY AM I WALKING WITH MY LEFT ARM SWINGING IN SYNC WITH MY LEFT LEG?!!

I could hear the bustle from the canteen. All the laughter, giggles and chatter all morphed into a dim of monotonous blare.

I crossed the gate's threshold with a lump in my throat and was telling myself to attract as little attention as possible.

FAIL.

My first foot into the school and the entire school suddenly turned from 100 decibels to 0 in 0.42 seconds.

Did I just stepped on the MUTE button?

Hundreds of pairs of eyes were on me like starving lionesses in the Gladiator's Colosseum. Had they each have a laser pointer, I would have gone ablaze into cinders on the spot.

I continued to walk towards the staff office and keeping as cool as I possibly could.

ARRGGHH!!! WHY AM I STILL WALKING WITH MY LEFT ARM SWINGING IN SYNC WITH MY LEFT LEG?!! 

I think I peed a little in my pants too.

It wasn't until half an hour later before everyone arrived and we started with our very first Parade.
