Back to school story

Remember those early school days when we were in white shirts, blue shorts and long socks? I do and it was back in 1988. I was so happy the night before my first day that I keep on asking mum stuffs about my new school, friends, how my new teacher would look like and, “What’s my name mum?”

“Your name is Hidney Wahid dear…”

I thought it was the longest night ever. I keep on waking up and checking the time. I was actually worried that I’ll be late for school as dad use to say things like, “You don’t want to make your teacher upset by being late to school. He’ll make you do push-ups and you’ll be caned too.”

Ouch!

It was only 5.30 am and I was already wide awake. I took my first morning shower and it was freezing cold. But I was cool. It’s my first day to school!!!

“What if I want to pee?” I asked dad.

“You should say something like this. Excuse me teacher, I need to go to the toilet.” Said he.

“What if I just say I need to pee?”

“Then you’ll be caned!”

I saw a lot of kids with their parents at the school compound when me and my dad arrived that morning. Some of them were crying. I saw some of the mothers too. Who will be my classmate, I was wondering…

The bell rang 3 times and soon I found myself with some 20 other equally nervous kids in a small classroom filled with tables and colourful pictures. At the front of the classroom, I saw a mid-age man with a very soothing look. “Good morning class. My name is Cikgu Basiri. I’ll be your class teacher. But before we start, do you have anything to ask?”

“I need to pee!”
