Some of Us Die Young, Pondar (1983-2009)

It’s 2am. Something bothers me and I woke up feeling uneasy.

I logged on to facebook and twitter, searching for latest updates from friends and family. *BAM* a news struck me hard. I learned of a friend’s death. Knowing these group of boys, I thought they were playing around, it turns out, it was real. Made a few calls to justify my curious soul. Sadly, the answer will never change no matter how I changed the question.

PondarPondar (Azil Afiq) is not your typical friend. He’s playful and goofy. He lights up the room with his funny stunts and gestures. Loud as he may seem, he is one of those people who’d hide his sadness from others. Pondar is far from selfish, he’d share his grubs during stay ups and would sell his Maggie at reasonable price.

Pondar was a rugby player, he was the hooker, he was my team mate. Though slightly round, he is determined enough to complete 10 laps everyday although at slower pace. Like any other rugby players, his loyalties belong to his team mates. I remembered him sheltering me from being bulldozed by the opponent. He’d ask, “Eddie, kau ok?”. Built tough, sweet inside.

After 5 years at MCKK, I hardly see him. But I knew he was somewhere out there, having the time of his life. Living with no regrets. It saddens me, that our friendship never extended to our kins.

Pondar, I’m sorry if I ever threw nasty words at you. Thank you being a great friend and a wonderful brother. You will be dearly missed.

Note: Pondar was caught in a motorcycle accident and was buried on 20th December 2009, 11 am.

ps: I’d knew I’d feel the pain after writing this down.

pss: To those who’s riding on daily basis, please be extra careful.

Betul. Riders, hati hati bwk motor. Pada masa yang sama, awasi penunggang/pemandu lain jugak. Kadang kadang kita dah careful habis, tp kena langgar jugak. Mcm aku raya tahun lepas. Kena langgar lari kat laluan motor Kesas. Patah tulang bahu. Kena pulak time wife sarat mengandung. Dugaan betul.

Walau cermat bagaimana pun kita membaca kenderaan, itu tak bermakna kita boleh mengelakkan kematian. Semoga kawan kau ditempatkan dengan orang yang berjaya.

memang kena hati-hati selalu bab motor ni. Malang memang tak berbau. Kadang-kadang, kita bawa ok aje. Tapi kalau dah nak jadi cerita, basikal sondol dari belakang pun leh bawak maut..

al-fatihah.
