Void Deck

The empty space below lil dot public housing is called void deck. If you die, you can hold your wake there, if you are getting married, you can hold your kenduri (wedding dinner) there, if you want to get rid of your old fridge, you can dump it there too, not too openly cos it is illegal….

Don’t know why it is called “void deck”? There is always something happening in the void deck. It is never void nor empty. Don’t believe me, lets take a look….

Child Play

November 11, 2008 at 11:15 p11 (Random Observations) (, , )

We used to run around in “lombong” (disused mining pond) when we were young and occasionally get wet sneaking a swim. The ending to this type of indiscretion was always a whacking from my father as lombong in those days was a dangerous place for kids. The seemingly serene water had claimed many victims but the allure of forbidden fruit was always irresistable, especially to kids with afternoons to kill. Nowadays, kids can get “wet” in the comfort of air-con mall and in the safety of a “dry” fountain under the watchful eyes of their dotting parents.

“Will you play with me?”
