Lately, I've been thinking a lot about possibilities. You know, the phase when you think of the next move that you're going to make in your life.
And honestly, sometimes I just cant help to think that I may not even make it through the day.
But I still remember the day when my dad and me went fishing together. I was 14 at the time, and I had just gone through some disciplinary action at school for smoking.
We talked about a lot of things, but I still remember one particular thing that he said to me.
Kamu tau, whatever it is, I'm just happy you experienced all this masa kamu tgh budak lagi. You know why? Because I know you'll learn from this and I know my son will be a better man than he was meant to be.
I also remember the day when my mom and me were having breakfast together at a stall near our house. I was 18 at the time, and I was waiting for my SPM results.
We talked about a lot of things, but I still remember one particular thing that she said to me.
Teruk mcm mana pun keputusan kamu nanti, mak tak kisah. Kamu tau sebab apa? Sebab mak tau anak mak lagi pandai jaga diri, berbanding anak orang lain yang resultnya lagi bagus dari kamu.
And I still remember the day when my sister and me were having dinner at home one night. I was 23, and just got a job in KL.
We talked about a lot of things, but I still remember one thing that she said to me.
Dont worry too much. I'm sure you're gonna do just fine. You know why? Because I know, you are smarter than those wannabe jocks out there, who doesnt even know how to tie their own shoelaces.
I still remember those days.
Maybe I'll make it through the day after all.
