An encounter I could never forget.

“Ring! Ring!”
“Shin! Shin! Please wake up, you are late to work!” Damn! It is already 8.30 in the morning. Today I have a very important meeting in my office! My wife, Stella, says, “Your breakfast is on the table, dear.”
Yeah. I am Shin. My body is well-built because sometimes I go to the gymnasium to sweat it out. I have droopy eyes and I am proud of it because only a few people have this kind of eyes. On the other hand, my wife, Stella, is a housewife. She is slender and she has the most beautiful cheek bones I have ever seen. When I finish my breakfast, I drive to work in a hurry.
On the way to my office, out of the blue, my car stops moving. Oh my god! My car stops in the middle of a forest! I need to walk at least 5 kilometers to the nearest gas station. Suddenly, on the way, I faint and fall into a dark, pitch black hole.
When I jolt awake, I hear voices repeating the same words again and again. The voices are all shouting simultaneously, “Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!” Where am I now? With multiple questions swirling in my head, I am helpless. I sit down. A man is quite curious when he sees me sitting on the road and asks, ”Why don’t you go into the stadium to celebrate together?
“Huh? Celebrate what?” I ask.
The man says without hesitation, ”Today is the independent day of our country! We are trying to enjoy ourselves today because the Britons have left our country.”
“What date is today?” I ask.
“It is the 31st of August 1957. Are you crazy? How can you forget the most important date in history?” With this, the man walks into the stadium.
Before I go out of my house, I am quite sure that I am in the year 2009! Why am I back in the 1950s? This is impossible! I think I must have fall into a black hole and go to the past. Today is the independent day of our country. This is history! I charge into the stadium to watch the Father of Independence, Tunku Abdul Rahman, chorusing the word “Merdeka” repeatedly.
When I see Tunku

    All Hollow’s Eve I was walking quickly by the old neighborhood real haunted house as we were going through the neighborhood trick-or-treating. It really is haunted!

    The Day I Will Never Forget I will never forget the bright light in the sky. I saw this light in the sky years ago when I was just a boy; I still to this day can remember it vividly as if it was just yesterday. I’m not exactly sure what it was in the sky, but whatever it was had defied all physics and natures law. When I was about nine years old I went with my parents one Saturday evening. One of my dad’s friends were throwing a pool party out of town. It was a nice summer’s night in or…

    A time I will never forget It was winter 2010and the weather was bad. The snow was knee deep and still falling. I was at work and sitting at the reception desk.

Straight away I could tell she was a gypsy traveller, the way she spoke and looked. She went on to tell me that she needed a room for the night as she was…

    The day I will never forget Everyone has something that reminds them of something or someone. For some the smell breadfruit reminds them of the meals their mom made in every fashion since it was the only thing she could afford. For others, it's a father playing with a child, an event they either experienced or long to experience. Then there are some who remembers a love one through a special song. For me it's a little bit of all. When I smell hot barber green marinating with the sound of rain…

    January 2014 A Loss I Will Never Forget September 11, 2001, I wish that was just a day like any other, but what happened on that day was sadly a tragedy. September 11, 2001 was the day terrorist high-jacked Boeing 747s and crashed them into the World Trade Centers, as well as the U.S. Pentagon. Everyone has a story from that day; some very different than others. Mine is probably very common for the kids that were in school. This was the day the Twin Towers were attacked, the day I lost a part of my…
