Memories of my childhood....

I attended my primary school education at the Hokkien Association in Taiping. My father used to send me to school using his old and bulky "man" bicycle........

I imitated my elder brother by holding big firecracker between my fingers and exploded it. The end result is, I end up having a split thumb......
As a young boy, I used to fish at the river behind my house. In one "accident", I end up having the fish hook stucked in my foot. My mother have to take me to the general hospital to remove the hook.....
As a young boy, I used to run around the village road in Pokok Asam in our famous "blue colour rrussian pants" chasing after snapped kites........

I once broke my hand trying to outrun all my brothers to be the first one to reach the Indian bread vendor...

My late father love to watch me doing the cha cha dance over a glass of Guiness Stout....

CK, great sense of humour. Childhood memories always make us feeling happy and grateful. Maintaining the childlike innocence in us is a great way to live our lives. Be strong and keep the humour intact. You will win brother. Keep fighting!! Will continue to pray for you.

Dear Ck
Posted a comment on your previous blog but guess I didn't do ti right just like the earlier comment I made which wasn't received by you.
Anyway, I enjoyed your childhood recollections, a lot like my own with all the escapades and memorable moments with our dear parents. I am glad you are recording all these for posterity and they are gems which will be read by even your grandchildren.
Keep up the high spirits and have faith and hope. I am praying for you everyday. Jesus loves you
