Flashback: The One Thing You Never Got

Cuba kau flashback sedikit.

Zaman kanak-kanak.


Pernah atau tidak,
Kau mahukan sesuatu,
Teramat mahu,
Tetapi kau tidak dapat miliki?


(What's the one thing that you have always wanted back when you were small, but never really got the chance to own/have it?)


Iya, kau kecil, kau tiada wang.
Sumber kewangan kau; hanya ibu bapa.


Dan jika ibu bapa tidak mahu belikan untuk kau,
That's it.
(Or budak SJ likes to say "Kau makan pisang." hahaha WTF )


Aku, obviously pernah.
(Memanglah banyak perkara yang aku tidak pernah dapat semasa aku kecil,
But there's one thing in particular yang aku ingat sampai sekarang)


Masa aku kanak-kanak, when I was 13 years old.
(Cheh takde la kanak-kanak sangat, tapi aku belum baligh lagi time ni, so considered kanak-kanak lagi kut?)


Aku 13 tahun.
Semua budak-budak 'cool' di sekolah memakai jam.


TETAPI,
Bukan sebarangan jam,
Tetapi jam tangan jenama Baby-G.


Oh so cool wey, aku pun mahu!
Jadi aku minta ibu bapa aku & obviously my "application" was rejected.


"Beratus for a watch?? No!" kata Daddy, ringkas.
Aku pujuk punya pujuk, memang tak dapat.
Aku merajuk 10 tahun pun tak guna, sampai sekarang aku tak dapat.


Aku cuma lihat kawan-kawan cool aku memakai Baby-G ke sekolah.
Terutama sekali Baby-G warna pink, di pakai sewaktu kami bersukan.


Sedar-sedar, zaman Baby-G sudah berlalu & aku telah pun dewasa.
Bila kau dewasa,
You learn to accept that there are some things; you can't have.
No?


Pagi tadi, aku terima sebuah kotak misteri, di meja di tempat kerja aku.


And teka apa isi kandungan kotak itu?
My very own Pink Baby-G!
(Aku cool weiiih!!@@##)

Adakah ini bermaksud you can have everything in life?
Or are some things ... just worth the wait?

Life, is full of surprises.

I will not agree on it. I think polite post. Especially the title-deed attracted me to read the unscathed story.

Brim over I agree but I contemplate the collection should secure more info then it has.

Back then, value the inspired collection had was merely material,

But fast forward to today,
The collection indeed represented more value of which I do not publish as readily available info becoz
INDEED,
this is an unscathed story
