So happy you liked the video. It is okay if he never reads this, but I thank Jesus for bringing Ron into the world years ago. Well, I shall begin from day one. Like everybody else, I thought he was together with Amelia. They were school mates since forever and even in Uni they kept staying close to each other only… so I was like.. kay never mind. Will not disturb. After the first week, Melia announced that she is not with Ron hahah they were just friends – the english magazine really brought us together and helped break all the tension. I have to admit, Ron’s short story was terrible. His english… I think he did it like an hour before the deadline. Since then we started taking short trips after the first field trips. We would all have lunch together. And sometimes Ron will take us all out.
When finals were around the corner, they all stayed back to study. Ron didn’t really stay except when he needed help with English (Our english is actually called “academic and communication skills and they are really a pain – with super strict grading). But by the end of the semester, we started going to the gym, having suppers 24/7, watching midnight movies, cooking at Fien’s house. By the second semester we were all badass enough to play CS (Counter Strike) and we got out ID’s recorded. Haaaa. But till today, Ron remembers I killed him – super funny when he found out it was me. Anyway.
These guys were like my second family there. Ron or Javan would never mind sending me to and fro from the airport every time I went back. I probably will never say this to their faces but I am so so grateful each time I see their faces in the airport.
So grateful, because I know when I go back to Kuching away from home (oh how dreadful) I will be actually going to my other home – with those familiar faces.
No, Ron isn’t like an extraordinary gentlemen that will go all out to be nice. But he is nice. In our last semester, his car over heated. The next day he thought it would be okay already. So we went out for lunch. Luckily Fien was in the car (His dad is a mechanic so he knows cars). The car over heated and we had to stop. It couldn’t start and we were really stuck. We tried everything – poor Ron he didn’t know what to do. Fien did what we could but we were stuck. So Ron’s dad told him to drive to a nearby shop and leave the car there for the mechanic to collect. We had lunch AND HE PAID FOR US… like zomg, we are the reason your car spoil then you still want to pay? Heeh.
But he is funny to talk to and he loves HIMYM. In our third semester when we were all stressed up for 3 units we had to choose our degrees too. He could never really make up his mind. After classes he agreed to come back and study. We went to the comp lab and agreed if we studied we would watch HIMYM’s latest episode. But we didn’t study, we just watched HIMYM haha. While waiting for the parking to be free (10pm you leave uni its free parking) we went up to the bridge and he talked about his work. AHH that boy hahaha, he told me he used to write those price signs. Those big numbers you see in the supermarkets – “0.99 cents” only kind. Hahahahaha and this is the boy who got the cinemas wrong. He so gan cheong when he read the text because he was a little bit late – he ended up almost half an hour late. So freaking funny. Underneath all that hiao-ness I know he’s a lot more. I would never trade anything to know him (& the other bros).
As weird as he listens to Drenched and other emo Chinese songs alot, as funny as his lame shares on facebook are (he always shares lame funny pictures), as lifelessly addicted he plays dota – he is still Ron Ron that will take me go Mcd at midnight – cause we’re hungry. Then we go back and annoy those studying in the chilling crib. Those were the days – thanks for everything. 🙂
Happy birthday Ron!
