i used to go to art class when i was a little. to be specific, when i was in standard two, going into standard three. that was about 16 years ago. whoa. 16. i went for the class up until i was 15. me and my brother were among the few malays in the class, and we were also the ones lasted that long. our teacher is a Chinese teacher, Mr Kong. a very good teacher, that's why he is also fierce. huhuhu. imagine that when he sneeze, everybody in the class would jump in suprise (or is it in shock?), including his wife, which is also his assistant. yeap, he's that type of good teacher, who would discipline you well. he would tear up your drawing homework just-like-that if you didnt finish the drawing. scary huh. yeah some of the students would end up crying, but that is his way to discpline them. and thanks for his teaching and the way he educates us, we are good in what we do best; drawings and artsy stuff. The art class was once every week, which was saturday night. Oh i can still remember how i hate Saturdays that time, as i would have to finish one drawing as a homework from the previous week. And if we were travelling to relatives house, my parents would make sure that we would be back home before the class. Sometimes when i'm rajin enough, i would finish my drawing earlier so that i would have time to go to pasar malam and watch doraemon a bit before going to class (the class was at 730pm, i think ). hehe. makan apam balik and jagung rebus rush2 mandi sembahyang magrib then go to class. i missed those days :).
and after that time, i dont really paint that much (draw banyak lah. draw sampah sarap itu ini conteng sana conteng sini). ada lah sekeping dua lukis gambar kucing lukis gambar tahpaper, but never a complete canvas drawing. sampailah satu hari nih, before i fly to melbourne, Mr Kong and Mrs Linda came to my house. (My family and his are actually quite close, muhibbah kan? hihi). Then masa borak2 tuh he said, 'Y dont u paint anymore?'. Trus i dont know what to answer. Ntahla cikgu, saya pun tak tau knapa saya tak melukis. mungkin saya nak jadik ahli musik, bukan pelukis. Hihihihi. tak funny huh. Ye lah, after all those years u have been drawing, then the teacher came to house and he didnt see a single drawing pun on the wall. mungkin saya rasa lukisan saya buruk sbb tuh saya tak mo gantung cikgu. Ataupun melukis bukan lah passion saya? atau sebenarnya hobi saya memancing? salahhh! sebenarnya awak nih malas! hihihihi!! *malu dgn diri sendiri*
Jadi untuk membuktikan ketidak malasan saya, dan oleh kerana saya baaaaaaanyakk sangat masa terluang kerana saya ini menganggur (sape ada keje kosong di melben sila sms ke 6014 13270461 ), maka saya pun berjaya (yes yesss!) menghabiskan sebuah lukisan malas yg bertajuk kisah rama-rama dan pengembara. tipu jek. tajuk sebenar dia adalah seperti dibawah. sekian sahaja episode ehwal islam kita kali ini, sehingga berjumpa lagi di minggu hadapan. wabillahitaufik walhidayah wassalamualaikum warahmatullah hiwabarakatuh. *arabic music continues then fade*
