Thanks to the Red Crescent Society of Malaysia and the MMU Cyberjaya Chapter I was able to experience an simulated event that I would never want to encounter. The 21 RC members including myself was whisked off from campus around 6.30 and arrived at the KLIA Fire Department’s multipurpose hall a little shortly after 7. After a brief briefing and a nomnomnom nice simple dinner session, we put on some makeup(some of it pretty gruesome) to simulate the injuries and waited to be brought to the end of the runway where the simulation will happen. It was about 9.20pm.
After being brought over to the location by space shuttle bus we sat and waited for the simulation to begin. And we waited….and waited….and waited some more….until 10.15pm sitting on very long grass and ‘lalangs’ when they finally start by lighting up the fire in a few huge pits that they dug up earlier and placing fuel and burnable trash accelerates. At first it was such a small fire most of us were really turned off and felt quite disappointed with what we saw until 30 seconds later that is when it mutated into this humongous bonfire that is at least 12 meters high and producing such heat that I could feel it from where I was standing about 50 meters away. With the amount of smoke produced I was wondering if they would get summoned for open burning. Oh and I believe it caught the attention of a few passengers on a plane getting ready for take off. lols.
So after the fire brigade came with their specialized vehicles and put out the fire with foam we (all 120 volunteers) were then ordered to go into the ‘danger’ area and act out our roles. I was suppose to be an injured passenger with severe burns and fracture to his left arm. So as we lied there on the grass shouting, screaming and some were moaning in very weird tones for help, the rescues arrive to assess the situation and to coordinate the rescue so that we could be taken out of the area to safety.
Finally it was my turn and this is how it turned out:
*a KLIA emergency rescue team member knelt next to me*
Rescuer A: Apa masalahnya encik? (What is the problem sir?)
Me (in character): MY ARM!!! IT HURTS!!!! THE PAIN!!!!! HELP ME!!!!
Rescuer A: Ok, bolehkah encik jalan? (Ok, can you walk sir?)
Me (in character): PLEASE HELP ME!!! MY ARM HURTS!!!! *using my right hand to grab left arm*
*Rescuer B, C and D arrives. (all KLIA emergency rescue team)*
Rescuer B: Ok, jadi apa yang kita nak buat? (Ok, so what should we do?)
Rescuer A: Ermm…..bagi dia ‘neck brace’. (Give him a neck brace.)
Me (to self): Huh? *pretending to be crying due to plain”
Rescuer B: Jadi tangan dia macamana? (So how about his arm?)
Rescuer A: Buat ’sling’. (Make a sling.)
*a 3 second silence…*
Rescuer B: Ehehe….mcam mana nak buat ’sling’? Saya dah lupa lah. (Ehehe…how do I make a sling again? I forgot.)
Me (to self):…………………………HUH???? WTF????? OMG?????!!!!! WTF??? WTF??? WTF???!!!!! *still crying btw*
….he proceeded to tied a piece of bandage on my arm….very lamely and unprofessionally.
I was brought on a stretcher after that towards the safety area where all passengers are taken to out of the danger zone. At the safe zome I was attended to a young female malay doctor who gave me a ‘red card’ after I have gave her many hints about my actual condition. Disappointing. With that I continued to stare at the dark cloudy sky for another 40 minutes with the neckbrace on and on the cold hard ground. I was so bored I contemplated on life and all its meanings assuming I even know what I was doing.
Anyways, I was later brought to an emergency treatment tent…if I was really in the red I guess I would have probably died by now. So now I had to stare at a blue ceiling and get a proper treatment bandage and all. But as I was lying there an ambulance trolley hit me on the head and due to the neck brace my whole body moved. Yes…it hurts. After some frantic apologies by the paramedic who pushed the damn thing and some automatic cursing and swearing by me and few nurses came over to put on a proper bandage on my supposedly damaged arm. Using a scoop they scooped my up onto one of the incoming trolleys for a ride I will never forget…on an ambulance.
On the contrary of being fun, its was frightening and bumpy and frightening. If I had a heart problem I would have suffered a heart attack and died. If I’m really a patient in critical I would have died due to shock. But regardless of how it was, that was the only way to save any patient and its speed. Lots and lots of it.
Save me dammit!
At the makeshift hospital, I was again attended to by a doctor who I had a friendly chat with and who complained of a lack of sleep and of work in the morning. In other word nothing fancy happened at the ‘hospital’ only that I meet a few Red Cresent members from the Petaling Jaya chapter who was vonlunteering to help out with the rescue operation. Finally, after a few complains with the doctors my status was downgraded to yellow and I was able to remove the darn neckbrace.
I had a sore neck, a headache, extreme tiredness and fatique at the end of the day. Not to mention I had to drive back home and bath to remove the makeup and stuff before sleeping. I finally slept about 5am. All this hard work for pain, boredom, and a no confidence vote for our rescue teams. In the end, I so don’t wanna be in any accident of any sorts in Malaysia.
I got dissapointed by KLIA and all I was was this stupid armband

Ladies and gentlemen,
I am proud but sad to announce that after less than 2 weeks of this blogs creation there is a troll running around my site trying to cause havoc where nobody cares but thinks its really funny. I do too. If you didn’t know, recently there was an unknown person calling him/her/troll/somethingself ‘n3wb!e’ attempting to slander me in my very own shoutout box. Apparently I have pissed someone off in my past to so much so that that person holds a grudge towards me.
If you’re curious, this this the dialogue in the box(unfortunately you need to read from bottom to up though):
n3wb!e : Ok now i have think about it, i will give a u 4 day times to think about it. Try to remember all the dirty stuff we did such as ass licking to ass Fucking. I will not do anything until you remember it. To all girls please avoid this person as he is a Menace to all the society. Now i m doing a contribution to society to warn others about this Menace.
n3wb!e : since u don not noe me much, y should i tell u??
Clow : may i ask how old are you?
n3wb!e : If u wanna lie continue ahead as i will not be bother by it as you have my anal virginity
n3wb!e : I m a transvestite, you numbskull. I know your look and live at Impian Height as well last time.
Clow : oh and during that time i was on a farm in New Zealand.
Clow : kakakakaka…you have no idea how i was in my ‘younger’ days. I was a total geek than a ‘mat romeo’. I never go to any parties as they were non. Please continue and entertain us. Btw you said you were a girl. Please continue…
n3wb!e : u remember 6 yrs ago on december 2002, you went to a party then we met you say i was good looking and then we just hit it off. When we was on the bed, you say u didn’t care of my dick as long u look like a girl. Now do you remember this
Clow : ….swt….i have never went out with a girl before…even in high school…and hence the still single status….and i am able to take a girls virginity….
Clow : assuming you are a guy but too bad since i’m straight from day 1 and everybody knows i’m straight. so i’m gonna leave it here for everyone to enjoy this rediculously funny ‘drama’
n3wb!e : like i say u heartless sure won’t remember me and i confess i m not a guy but a girl instead
Clow : the whole i took a guys virginity shit
Clow : now i’m really sure i do not know you
Clow : ok this is just crap
n3wb!e : that incident, u took my virginity
n3wb!e : u try to think bck 6 yrs ago..
n3wb!e : u think im stupid..i in love with u so many yrs..do u think i dont know ur full name..christopher low weng cheong.then say i want keep my identity sercret tell for u call me instead if u remember me.
Clow : if you want me to apologise then tell me more info like where and when and what happen
Clow : then who are you?
n3wb!e : I’m contributing to society but i just can’t forget how much u hurt me before. i wanna u apologize.use your blog to apologize to me appropriately
Clow : you wanna fuck people also make sure you get the right one
Clow : you think i will put my full name on the internet?
Clow : *half of it
Clow : its only have of it
Clow : err…thats not my full name you fool
Clow : Oh yes please do call me so we can settle this once and for all…if you do say you know me then you should have my number. I’m serious about this. I haven’t changed my number from day 1 since I got my first handphone.
n3wb!e : yea, i know my english is not good as yours..but as least im here to learn how to FUCK u..do u think that i got a wrong person instead that i know his full name… CHRISTOPHER LOW… u wont know who i am…
Clow : Oh yes I am also a heartless person…to moronic imbeciles who talk and do stupid things. Do you fit into this category? Useless ingrate. How I wish i got such an ability as you say i have you moron. Go and study and be a good person and contribute to society since you have the free time to spam in my shoutbox.
Clow : hey newb, nobody here believes a single shit you are spouting. In fact I have really no idea why you are so pissed at me. Maybe you got the wrong person I supposed? Since you say you know me and stuff why don’t you call me and say those things to my face? Hey I don’t mind but I really think this needs to stop as you got the wrong person. I do not know someone who has that bad of an english as you anyways.
n3wb!e : see i alrdy told u guy there..he’s really heartless person. he wont remember wat he done to me..he really SUCK to me…
Nikki : *hugz akiko too*
Akiko : >__> swtz. *hug nikki* that’s all that i believe now.
Clow : eh… what? rejecting a gay guy? i do have gay/lesbian friends and i’m proud to be their friends but…non of them EVER confessed or anything to me. So really this is just plain weird…
n3wb!e : my heart broken in pieces of glass…thx man of honor…
man of honor : Sure is a heartless dude if he treated you like a clown.
n3wb!e : yea…anyway i noe tat being a gay person sure will b reject by a lot of ppl… but this chris is the one i hate him…he treating me like a clown…fooling me around… i doubt he is guessing who am i…coz he wont remember me at all…he is a heartless ppl…he should go to HELL…
man of honor : Sure hurts to be rejected.
There was some unimportant stuff at the bottom so i had to delete them to make some space. Anyways, apparently this ‘person’ is someone I knew back in highschool otherwise I would not be telling people where I live…or this person found my lost wallet when I lost it a few years ago. But still…looks like just like the opposition leader of our dear ol’country I’m being accused of ‘cucuk orang belakang’ and stuff of those nature(to a tranny btw!). Well, basically its slander to try to tarnish my good name (I have one in the first place?).
But from this hilarious and sometime scary chapter of my life I have learned that by beginning this blog I will definitely encounter this kind of nonsense sooner or later and I should be more humble in starting my blog. So therefore, I will start again with an apology.
To all my friends, classmates(past and present), colleagues(past and present), my family, and to those whose tail I stepped on which I might definitely have, I hereby apologize for any wrongdoings that I may/might/be doing to you. I am only but a human being in this ever expanding universe of ours. With that, I am sorry
…………but I’m not apologizing for actions that I did not take. Oh, speaking of actions, I also apologize for the actions I did not take due to forgetfulness(sorry Suzanne!).
So yeah I do hope my past enemies would forgive me as I had forgiven my own enemies…in fact I didn’t know I had one nor make one with my limited abilities in the first place.
P/s: man of honour…you really should stop encouraging weirdos like this. Nanti I ‘cucuk’ kamu punya belakang wei saya ni mat romeo tau! lols

This semester I’m taking a subject called Moral Studies. Its not like I want to take it, its more like I’m forced too. What really pissed me off the most was an assignment forced upon the students which requires us to do social work. I was literally furious when I first heard about it as other universities do not have such an assignment. But then after completing this assignment I feel a sense of joy and appreciation for actually having to do it. Why? Read on.
House of Joy
Recently, I went on a trip to do social work at the House of Joy, an orphanage located in Puchong. It is a social concern and a non-profit charitable home that administers shelter, care and training to orphans, children and teens who are underprivileged, abused, abandoned & neglected, poor, and delinquents. It is home to over 30 kids from preschool level to form 5. There we played with the younger kids and gave them snacks that we bought earlier from Tesco at the end of the visit. But that’s not the main point, its the whole learning process about them that really changes a person. In fact, at the end of the day I had so much fun interacting with them I didn’t actually wanted to go back.
Suzanne onee-chan playing with the kids
The kids were so rediculously cute, very smart, and very very diciplined.
Its sad to see such bright young kids in such a place. All of them are there due to various reasons from problematic families to abandonment. At the end of the day as I was leaving I felt an extreme sadness and anger because I feel that none of them should be here in such a place.
I wanted to put her into my pocket and take her home... (TT_TT)
I saw this Lucky Star poster when I was there and I almost burst into tears. I do not know why. Maybe it links me to the kids…I do not know.
I almost burst into tears when I saw this...and I do not know why...
