I am Chinese wording illiterate. I can only understand and write few Chinese words. I choose to only learn some words that I am interested with. For instance, I love durian. 我爱吃 Durian. I do not read Chinese but I love browsing Tawau, Morning Post and China Press for which I only stare at interesting pictures.
Browsing Morning Post is to divulge ‘8 poh” news. It is astonishing to discover shocking pictures of a familiar human face. Just a short info, I came from a small town, recognizing familiar faces from a small town aren’t that complicated. I could recognize someone that could be your family members, relatives, neighbors, friend’s family, friends; friend, regard it as a 60 degree friends circle. I take it as an “eating-too-full-nothing-to-do” hobby; to identify who is getting married by the end of this week, who became a mistress, or a young adolescent marriage or who had just graduate from a notorious abroad University. Tawau citizen loves to publicize graduation. Whenever any “Ah kow” or “Ah Lian” graduated from a couple of hundred thousand ringgit school fees University, you will see them wearing their black Dracula gown, and a child's handmade square 20 x 20 cardboard hat alike thingy holding on an empty toilet roll core, cylinder scroll on a black and white print, which sometimes come in pink in the newspaper. Undoubtedly the graduates feel ego, conceited and pride. Who doesn’t? Imagine you see yourself publicize on a page in the newspaper holding your expensive empty toilet rolls core cylindrical.
