Thud, thud. Not to worry, I'm still alive.

Sometimes you will feel a sign before something like disasters or accidents to happen. Maybe. Is it your instinct? Or your sixth sense? Perharps it's from God, sending you a warning, speaking to your heart very softly. And, like any other, I used to overlook it, muffling down the inner voice. Don't think too much Matty, nothing will happen.

This was just an ordinary day. The sun rised and went down. But before he hid himself completely behind the hills, ... ....

We were setting off to my grandma's house.At the lobby of my home my dad passed me the car keys and asked me to drive. I was wearing pants with no pockets, so I didn't bring my wallet and I held my phone in hand. Funny, it has been a long time I didn't drive my family out, and when the chance was offered I left my driving licence behind. I thought for awhile, why.

Out in the road, turned left. Oh no, it's Wednesday night, pasar malam. I reminded my dad. Should I? You could still squeeze through the market.He turned back and chose another route.

Going on smoothly.I leaned on the left door with my left shoulder as I used to, spinning my phone, never know what was I expecting of.

RED LIGHT ahead!Dad made a right turn to avoid it. I thought it was not neccessary. Silence reigned. Maybe my mum had fallen asleep.

Almost there, last right turn to cross. I saw the lights, a few were slow far behind the opposite way, but one was moving fast. Ah, I thought we needed to wait.

Yea, I thought.

The car did not come to a rest. It took a turn. What?!

I felt the time had stopped. In a second, my mind was turning and thinking fast. My dad should have stepped on the pedal hard to make a fast turn. However it seemed to be so slow. Why my mum wasn't screaming as she used to? Should I shout?

The light slowed a little bit and it yawed left and right. Wow, so near, with a passenger.Finally, I made up my mind to shout for a warning but it turned out to be a scream of fear.


I threw my body to the right and put my hands behind my head immediately. Of course, eyes closed.The car stopped after a few seconds.Ah, let me think, fight or flight reaction? Well, I am trained.Yeah.Haha.

I felt an impact on my left shoulder.Tiny pieces showered on me from behind, like scenes in the movies.A huge impact huh. When I opened up my eyes again, glass debris all over the cushion, my clothes and my body. I heard my mum crying in prayer. My dad went off. I looked back, a man lying there with blood.

" I don't want to see!I don't want to look!Oh Jesus preserve their lives!Oh Jesus!" My mum cried louder.

I dared not to move, you see, all the shattered pieces around, a slightest move will pierce into my delicate skin. I turned my head to the left, there was a small hole, the window had turned into a frame of diamonds, sparkling. My mum asked me to call the ambulance.I saw someone outside holding a phone. I called my aunty instead.

Don't worry my friends, no one died.

I can still laugh, I can still joke.



Thank you Neri for your comforting call, which was not comforting at all. It was more like a mum nagging to her son. I told you I was not the driver!Oh please.Haha. Thank you!

How I hope this was just a story, maybe his story, or her story, just don't be mine.

It was not a bad thing at all to have such experience. But I really don't like the consequences. I am still not clear what protocol my family will trigger. Don't worry, there is no such thing as Ghost Protocol in my family. Perharps I will be grounded for a few weeks? Ah yes, what my grandma repeated to me over and over again right after that :

" Matthew Zai!Popo always tell you do not sit your friends' cars!!You see!"

I replied her calmly :" My father was the driver just now ... ..."

So, kindly please drop your supplements to me at my room window, I must lie low for awhile at home. Haha. Thank you so much.


Dear mum and grandma, I love you all. I saw your white faces.<3


Forget about how much fun we had yesterday together,I miss the sea and the boat ride!Yeah! The only flaw of the trip was we didn't overnight. Allow me to clarify here, I didn't emo due to whatever reasons lah. I was sick, having sorethroat and fever and you all knew it.I am consicous and I live in the present.XD

With the condition like this, how am I able to run around in the field for paint ball? So I turned down the paintball game and chose to rest whole day at home.

As always, unexpected events keep on crashing into my life, making my life exciting.XD I received a message from Hong You Jing to ask me to go to school to involve in a simple movie making. I gladly accepted the request, ya, although I was sick, but I told him I might be late. Haha. You all know I love to act and direct movies.

I reached school with school uniform (which I dug a few metres down my home to get it,) and saw the other actors and actresses were doing some foolish movements on the field. I had a fever, and walking into the school compound with school uniform made me felt even worse. I joined the crowd, not knowing what was the movie about, I just followed what they were doing.

There was a large group with different layers of students, haha, but mostly were seafood form 3 guys (opps) and a few form 5s. As the time went on I came to know what was it all about. Year 2002 school leavers are celebrating their 10th year of graduating, and they wanted us to help them to make a short video for the event.

It was no fun at all.

Why?I am not the main character.Ha Ha Ha. Just joking.

The director and cameraman took more of the seafood kids, with dyed hair and seafood dressing styles. They seemed to like them so much. The pros like those from Drama Club and us ( hehe) were left aside watching them.

Yeah, we were just the crowd or the so-called 'Pedestrian A' in Chinese that you usually see in the movies.

Although it's quite boring, I tried to adjust my mood and observe what could I learn. I observed how they took the shots and the tools used. One of them was in the team of Malaysian Chinese Movie "Tian Tian Hao Tian" a.k.a. "Good Day". So I take it as an experience and felt being treated like an actor. Haha. They bought breakfast, tea and lunch, for over 30 of us.

The video will be on Facebook next year after Chinese New Year. I hope my face will appear more and some famous directors will notice my talent. HAHAHAHAHA.Who knows?XD

Today was a good day, even though I don't like the ending part of it.

Mission:Impossible-Ghost Protocol

 Yeah,I watched this movie for twice,once with friends and once with family during Christmas.

I think most of you have watched this movie too, so I will just skip the synopsis part.
 In fact, the main objective of my parents to go out for a movie is that we can hang out together as a family. My parents don't enjoy watching movie much, usually we will watch some animation movies, at least the cute characters will 'distract' my parents from dozing off.XD

However, this time was so special. Because of I was watching the movie for the second time, I had free time to look around to see others' expressions during the sudden bombing part (HAHAHAHAHA). It was quite fun though, seeing others shock faces (I know I am lame.). Before entering the cinema, I was afraid that my childish mum would not be able to understand how the plot proceeds. I was amazed that she could follow the story line well and she was so eager plus nervous to know what come next. She kept nudging me and asking questions like, " Is their plan successful?" "Did he die?" .

When the movie ended I was shocked to see my parents discussing the movie.

Mum :" So agent Hunt's wife still alive?"

Dad :"Ya, I think so."

Mum :" The assasin Moreau is whose girl friend?Agent Thant's right?That's why he is so angry when that woman kicked her down."

Dad :" No lah, Moreau is not Thant's girl friend lah."

Mum :" Then why is Thant so angry."

Dad :" Its because they are losing one asset."

Mum :" What do you mean by 'asset'?"

Matty:"An asset is ... ..."

Of course, such high standard question which my mum asked cannot be answered by my dad.XD

Well, familiar with this picture?

There is a question I like to ask, the sticky gloves which he uses to climb the tallest tower are produced by which country? 

Perharps they are made in China.Haha.Or they are pirated. That's why halfway climbing his right glove malfunctioned, leaving him the left one to finish the tough climb. Oh, dear USA, don't take your agents' lives as a joke.XD

This is a brilliant movie, it captured my parents' attention.=)
