First Rented Room in Kuala Lumpur 1976

As I was travelling along Ipoh Road yesterday, my mind start to creep into the period during my student days staying along this road. Took out my handphone and captured this image (traffic jam lah). This is the house where our 1st room was rented during our Lower Sixth Form in TARC. We, meaning Teow Choon, Tick Choong, Yeok Tooh & myself. Our land lady is Ah Chan, now staying also along Ipoh Road @ 5th Miles ( a canvas shop called "Federal Canvas").

The most memorable thing I can still remember staying in is house is our neighbours, they were the adopted daughters of Rose Chan. Their professions were "stage" performers, and everyday they would hang their costumes out on the line to dry, you can see all kinds from G strings to bras with feather or glittering scale on them, just like those you can see in the big time shows in Las Vegas.

My housemates from Taiping (working guys) engaged in a quarrel with these ladies during one quiet night. Hell, they had a fierce quarrel, cursing and challenging each others. BTW, both houses have similar long corridors cum balconies facing each other and leading to the bathrooms at the rear. These were their battle field or killing field, which ever it was. For more juicy details, you can contact those names mentioned above.

It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I write.

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting and loving one another. However...

Some feel invaded and ofended that I present myself this way in their blogs and rudely insult me back.
Some think I'm playing the smart guy who wants to profit, in my miserable and ridiculous gain with Adsense (go figure!), from and with others curiosity and benevolence.
Some simply ignore me.
Some aknowledge that It's most important we all take notion that there's milions of us bloguing arownd the world and thus vital any kind of awareness such as I believe this my self-introduction card and insert apeal brings in.

May you be one of those open and friendly spirits.

You must not feel obliged to come and visit me. An invitation is not an intimation. Also know that if you click on one of my ads I'm promised to earn a couple of cents for that: I would feel happy and rewarded (because I realy need it!!!) if you did click it, but once again you're totaly free to do what ever you want. I, for instance, choose immediatly to click on one of your ads, in case you have them. To do so or not, that's the whole beauty of it all, however, blogocitizens must unite also by clicking-helping eachother when we know cybermegacorporations profit from our own selfishness regarding to that simple click.

About this I must say, by my own experience, that no one realy cares (maybe a few) about this apeal I make, still I believe in my Work and Dreams and thus I'll keep on apealing and searching so strong is my will.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge (though you can use the translater BabelFish at the bottom of my page!) and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Remenber that pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!
