Growing up

An alternative title would be "Oh shit".


Some years ago, my cousin Lai would frequently remind me that working life is not pink, fuzzy and huggable, and that I should make full use of my uni years while I was still studying.

While the question of whether I made good use of my uni years is debatable, Lai is of the opinion that some of the time spent studying mathematics, philosophy, automotive technology, physiology and physics would be better spent socialising and having fun, I hold by my opinion that these insights have given me superpowers. (urgh that's a long sentence: 52 words and 5 commas)

Today, I found myself dishing out the same advice to the god-sister. Granted, she is not yet in university but the recommendations still hold. And I found myself envying the time the cousins get to spend together.

We had our interesting times too, the first times we stayed up past 4 am, when we made agar-agar at 1am, the petrol bomb incidents, stifling our laughter lest we wake our parents up...

We (D, May, Hou and myself) certainly did stir up a minor ruckus, our grandparents' neighbour occasionally being on the receiving end of our mischief - inadvertent or otherwise. Bless his soul, I hope his passing had nothing not much to do with our misdeeds.

Ya we were damn bored and we decided that our car needed a break down, so we popped the bonnet to take a look. Only later we saw the police behind us did the car magically heal itself.
