I am not a boy, not yet a gigolo

Last week, a woman emailed me to ask if I give home tuition as she has a primary 6 daughter. Seeing that I am free at the moment, I say it is possible. On the same day she called me up and talked to me for 11 minutes on the phone about this and that. Later when I emailed her that I charge Rm120 per subject for home tuition (one on one tuition to her daughter at her residence). She immediately cut contact with me. The moral of the story is, do not walk into a restaurant before you know the prices they are selling. Or else you will be wasting time. Which I am very particular at.



My retarded picture 2 years back


It has to be a sickness of mine. But I am one of those people that is very particular with time. Whenever I was young, whether it be after school or tuition, the first thing I'd do is to rush out of the class. Because my father will be picking me up usually and if I make him wait any longer than 5 minutes, he will definitely yell at me. I can bet all my money in my pocket against all your money in your pocket that he will definitely f@#king yell at me. As a result, I grew up to be always on time, which is good. The side effect however is that I dislike people who come late or waste time. I take it personally. People who cannot do a simple thing like show up on time is just not fit for this world, they should be taken into a zoo, put into a cage and let the public feed them. That is the safest means for them to survive.


As I was reading the papers last week, I went through the classifieds and I saw this handsome 18 year old boy from Kuching on the obituary. A former lodge school student. It was written that he passed away due to an accident in KL. At first I thought it was a car accident because that's how Malaysians usually like to die. Later I heard that he died falling from the 14 storey of a condominium. Apparently he was living in the condominium, and he realised that he forgot to take the keys when he left the house. So he somehow thought of climbing back to his condo by the balcony or the window. Unfortunately he slipped. It's a sad story.


Whenever you want to do something and you are unsure if it is the right choice. There is a simple formula I have to make things easier. All you need to do is consider the consequences of the action both when you succeed in it and when you fail. Then compare both consequences to see if the risk is worth it. For example, if I cross the red light sucessfully, I get to reach to my destination faster. If I fail, I may be involved in an accident and die. Is reaching your destination faster worth your life? If you think it is, go ahead. After all, the classifieds needs something to post up all the time.


No one can separate emotions from rationale completely. Just as neither can separate love from lust. If I love you I must do you just as God intended it to be. The question here isn't who is rational and who is not. It is who is more rational and who is lesser.



P/S: Rm120 for personal home tuition is not expensive compared to what my fellow toy boys are earning lah.

Hey, I also very particular in time but I realize people nowadays alwalys like to be late and not punctual at all......

Hmmmm - what a sad story on the young boy. I just wonder why he dare to climb.......Not sure is that we should said "FATE"???

I believe in destiny but not fate. Destiny brings Jesus into the picture, but fate leaves you to yourself. I can definitely verify Andrew's experience that my dad will yell at him if he's a second late. I experience that from my dad too when I was young. That is why until today, we are punctual people.

The young boy actually helped his friend to get the key. It's not his condo.

Thank you for informing.

Magnild world, I totally agree with you! They really don't know what "ON TIME" means!!
Andrew, you are so kind, put them in cage and let others feed them... I ll kill them and tear them into pieces straight away because I really hate those people with lousy time management.
