Last weekend was my second visit to Kuala Kangsar for the LaPassion Project. I met a few teacher throughout the 2 days training, on and off the field. As for the boys, they’re coping with the training easily. It was either fit or I was being easy on them. The U15s are doing quite well. I can see some unpolished gems on the field. Really can’t wait for their first cap.
Anyway, this post is not about the boys, it’s about my trip to my alma matter, The Malay College. It’s quiet a surprise that most the teachers still remember me, I’d have to thank my ‘English’ name for that.
Ms Grace : Kamu ni Edwin, jalan lambat2. Same saje macam dulu..
Miss Grace was our physics teacher. I was never in her class, but I remembered addressing a few questions to her pertaining the subject. And of course I did run from her, when she did dorm rounds. It wasn’t the ass whipping, it’s the never ending advise that I hated.
Ust. Ishak : Masripan! Lama tak nampak..
He shouted from a distance. He was my arabic teacher. There was a few occasions where I was caught ‘bending’ the schools law. While other boys got a whipping, he would just talk to me. By the way, he uses Surname to address people, i.e. our parents name. If you ask me, I’d prefer a whooping than being lectured, save my time please…
Ahmad Badri : Edwin, mana batu bata?
He greeted me after the rugby training. Back in 2000, we carry bricks for rugby practice. He was the school’s athletics team manager. I remembered he gave me a ride to town on his Yellow Jaguh. Was also the first teacher who explained what harm can smoking do.
Yob Zain : Hang dari mana ni? [he shook my hand and gave me a hug]
Boy, that was gay. He was the man behind every sports at MCKK. He was also the one to invite GREAT schools to compete in our invitational events for Sports day. Thank god, we won ALL. He was proud as ever, so was I.
Saffuan : Awak kencing lagi dalam pool tak?
It was one of his remarks, “if you pee in pool, your dick will be weak”. It was one of those (school) days, where I escaped class just to do some dipping and he caught me, and gave me another 30 minutes. I don’t remember him much. I was never in his class. But we sure spent some quality laughs together.
School’s out, what now? Work…
