Random Memories: Fourteen Years Old
"So you know lah, I've got a new girlfriend all now," he said to me one day in class.
Ben had sat next to me for the whole year that year, and had watched me and consoled me in my tears after the whole World Cup Betting Scandal of 1994 in my school.
"So that day right, my mother so funny you know."
"She was standing at my bedroom door and looking at me lah. Then you know what she say ah? 'Ben, now that you got girlfriend, ah, don't love mummy anymore lah!' So funny lah she! So I mah stand up and go and hug her lor!'
'You'll always be the number one, Mum! Huh huh!'"
Ben laughed his trademark chuckle, and his boyish faced lit up, and you could see both the boy newly in love, and the good son trying to reassure his mother of his love for her.
Congratulations to both Ben and Angie on their wedding!
Ben (who occasionally reads my blogs) it has been an absolute pleasure growing up with you, sharing in your easygoing attitude towards life and laughing at your jokes all these years!
