It Wasn’t A Sequel To Begin With
November 29, 2012 – 18:32 | No Comment

My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

WIN USD $50 – Share Your Coolest April Fool’s Story

Submitted by on March 29, 2010 – 13:1023 Comments

Hey Coby! I am getting married this 31 April. The reception will be held in my church at 11am. Tradition dinner will be held at Sheraton Hotel, KL – 7pm. You’re invited to be part of my big day. Let me know if you can come ya.

I sent the above SMS to a guy friend whom I got to know through Last Chaos Multiplayer Online Game. Despite the fact that we only chatted in the game and I didn’t know who he really was in life, we somehow managed to exchange mobile number. Every time he logged in and didn’t see me online, he SMSed me and vice-versa. The game would be boring without his companionship. We became good online friends and grew very fond of each other.

What? You didn’t say you were engaged? You are eighteen right?

Of course I am 18. I won’t lie to you. So are you coming?

Sure I am coming. You are getting married. I will cross the ocean to be there if I must.

There is no ocean between Kuantan and KL. But if you wanna climb over Gunung Tahan, I wouldn’t mind. Hehehe!

This is so sudden. I think I am getting a heart attack.

Oh calm now. It’s just a wedding.

No, it’s NOT just a wedding. I can’t believe you are getting married.

Why not?

Cause you have never mention about it when we were fighting beasts and scorpions in the desert.

I don’t think knights talk when they are fighting for their lives.

But we talked and chatted throughout each battle. You could have said something.

Like what? Thank you for being my knight in armour and saving me from the beasts but my real knight is sitting next to me in front of the computer?

Well… something like that. Can we meet up before your wedding?

Are you serious? I can’t even believe that you are coming.

Who knows! You might meet another Prince Charming before your wedding.

And what? Get married twice and have 2 husbands?

I was hoping that you will marry just one.

Obviously just one hubby for me. I can’t imagine jumping into bed with two guys though that would be tempting.

You can jump into bed with just me… I think I like you.

Of course you do. We got married in the game, remember?

We need to talk before your wedding. I’ll buy a bus ticket and we’ll meet up some time this week, okay?

Don’t you have classes tomorrow?

We need to talk. I want to be more than just the knight who saves you from beasts. I like you. We could be more than just friends.

We are more than just friends. That’s why you are invited to my wedding on the 31 of April.

I care for you, gal.

So do I. Happy April Fool’s Day! Hehehe…

P/s: If you haven’t figure out the joke, there are only 30 days in the month of April.

Every 1st of April, I remember this prank I played on Coby in 2005 as if I butted the prank into his face just yesterday. I smile to myself every time I recall this joke I played on a faceless friend living across the country – a bittersweet smile. It was surprising that an innocent prank has helped me discover that a guy actually like me. And he was so serious that I got a little shocked. I’d always thought that he might like me and imagined how it would be like to have a boyfriend, but to really have my imagination coming true was beyond my prospect.

This April Fool’s Day, let me hear your coolest April Fool’s story instead. Just submit them via comments and stand a chance to win USD $50. You can write your story, or if you are good in graphic, you can draw out your story in cartoon and email it to me, or if you have done up an video, simply post the link here. Presentations of idea do not matter (I know, not everyone is good at expressing themselves), the main core story idea is the winner; something that tickles funny bone and makes people laugh till their sides hurt when they read; something that people want to try on others during the next April Fool’s Day.

With April Fool’s just 2 days away, this is the time to put on your thinking cap to make it yet another memorable day. While you are at it, remember to share your coolest ideas and stories here. Contests ends on 15th April 2010. So start sharing now to win USD $50! Good luck and have fun!

    Hi, Flo Toh’s friend Michelle Chee here.
    Just wanted to share my april fools prank I thought I’d go a bit crazy this year and change my Facebook relationship status from ‘Single’ to ‘In a relationship’. It’s only been six hours since the change, and already people are leaving comments and sms-ing me asking for details. Haha. My younger brother panicked and asked whether he could tell our mum. I said “Go ahead, but first ask yourself what day this is.”

    Flo herself texted me. Went something like this:

    “Michelle, Congratulations!. So, who’s the new heartthrob”

    Reply: “Oil palms. Happy April Fool’s Day”

    Flo: LOL. Post tat(sic) up in Gina’s website……….

    So, that explains what I’m doing here. April fools is not over yet. 6 hours to go. I’m waiting for more drama. Ciao.

    • Cmate says:

      Hey hey hey!

      Great prank, Michelle. Something so simple, yet people keep falling for it. Right right? Hehee! And Flo herself fell for it, now that is funny, cause I remember telling her to open her eyes cause it’s April Fool’s Day.

    Hola everybody, Happy Fool’s Day!
    A shoplifter was caught red-handed trying to steal a watch from an exclusive jewelry store. “Listen,” said the shoplifter, “I know you don’t want any trouble either. What do you say I just buy the watch and we forget about this?”
    The manager agreed and wrote up the sales slip. The crook looked at the slip and said, “This is a little more than I intended to spend. Can you show me something less expensive?”

    Happy April Fool’s Day!

  • flo says:

    My Submission:

    1996. We were just entering Form 1. The transition from Primary school into Secondary education was one that gave us great aspirations. Along with the ambition, came the inevitable desire to be enrolled in only the best institution which would ensure exceptional examination results, paving way for what would seem like a bright future. I was lucky that I got into the best school in town, the only school with Form 6, the one which was famed for many achievements and glamorous headlines in the newspaper. I was obviously feeling very proud of myself.

    Some of my not-so-lucky friends were listed in other secondary schools that were perceived to be not-so-prestigious. As soon the new academic year reopened, the Education Department would be flooded with parents trying to transfer their children from these ‘not-very-prestigious’ schools into my school. Sometimes they succeeded, sometimes they didn’t. I have no particular idea on how the selections were made. But I had an idea on how to make sure my friends don’t feel left out and separated when we parted ways in secondary school.

    One eventful day, I rang up Lee, a close primary school classmate who was enrolled in a different secondary school than mine. Below is the translated version from the original Malay discourse.

    Me : (speaking in very formal Malay language). Good afternoon, may I speak to Mr. Lee (his full name) please?

    Lee : Speaking.

    Me : Hi Mr. Lee. This is (I came up with a fancy corporate-sounding name for myself) from the Education Department. You applied for a school transfer from (his ‘not-so-prestigious school’) to (the name of my school) right?

    Lee : Yeah…(he was sounding rather confused)

    Me : Congratulations! Your application has been accepted. You can enrol into the new school this coming Monday.

    Lee : (silence…then after a while came a distinct voice “MOM…??!! Apparently he called his mother on to the phone)

    Lee’s Mother : Hello?

    Me : (in a more formal voice) I’d like to speak with Mr. Lee (his full name).

    (the phone was passed back to Lee)

    Lee : Hello?

    Me : Hello, Mr. Lee? You can enrol into the new school on Monday.

    (silence for a few seconds)

    Me : Hey, it’s me lar… hahaha! Happy April Fool’s Day.

    Lee : Cheerrrrr!!!!

    Me : What are you doing?

    Lee : Eating durian…can you smell it?

    Me : (took a breath for a second …then felt lame and stupid) Obviously not. Can’t smell durian over the phone lar…

    Lee : Hahaha…

    Me : =_=”
