Books, the best invention in the world.

I used to hate books so much. The books are just so heavy to carry around. Not to mention that it’s flammable enough to cause huge fire. I can’t enter into any library as well because I will suffocate inside with so many books around. I felt like I have some weird power to sense any books around me, I would have headache if there is any. In other words, I have books allergy. The fact that I grew up with a lot of books make me sad because to create books, lots of papers are required, and where you get the papers? Tree.

I guess it’s not all bad, there is a saying, never judge a book by its cover. Books are not just for reading, try to think outside the box for awhile,  the books can be turn into a box! Well you just have to duct tape lots of books together and you got your self a box made out of books to put more books inside.

I believe many designers out there have their own preference of decorating home, be it furnishing, lighting or nothing. In my opinion, I think that book is the best decorative ever. Books are just so flexible that you can fit it in any scene you like. No matter what it will always be relevant. Perhaps you can try it your self, decorate your home with books, I’m sure when people pay a visit they would say wow, with their jaw dropping. Yes, that is what we are looking for, the “wow” factor.

Some people just love to write down notes no matter where they go. Always having a book with you would help sometimes. As you can see, the world is not square, not even a perfect round shape, it’s slightly oval. Not every place have smooth surface for you to write properly, in this case do not hesitate to use a book as the bottom layer, it provides smooth and comfortable writing surface.

Growing up in an Asian family is not easy at all, we are forced to read a lot. We are forced to read everywhere we go, including the washroom. As the elderly always said, time is gold. I didn’t understand how that phrase have anything to do with reading all the time everywhere. Until one day, when I was doing something big, guess what, there is no more tissue left. That moment, the phrase “time is gold” struck my head, and I understood. I used a few pages and get it done. If I call and wait for help, I might missed the intro song of my favorite cartoon.

Books can be a good tool to kill insect too. I used some of my mom’s books to smash some cockroaches. There is no need to buy any other stuff which are poisonous. Just use books, it help save cost, non poisonous, friendly user and intelligence. By the way, my friend told me that the cockroaches that I smashed must be very proud to die under the book, they died with honor, not every living got the chance to die under a book.

Ever annoyed by the person sit beside you? Feel like hitting them? That’s a common problem and reaction that we face nowadays. Hitting them with your own hands could hurt your own hands, but hitting them with common weapon could kill them. Just hit them with a book, it’s the best choice there is. Why? They feel the pain and it doesn’t leave scars on them. Also that hitting with a book doesn’t really hurt the relationship, it’s somehow like a package, sense of humor is included. We’ll all just have a laugh about it and get to remain the relationship until you are annoyed again, then just repeat the process and everything will be fine.

A book can be use to block the sunlight. A book can be use to keep warm as well, I learned this from the movie called ” The day after tomorrow “. There’s a lot more usage of books, and I will let you explore them all by your self. Go ahead, don’t be afraid, have fun exploring the books.

Nowadays, internet make the world shrink smaller that we can have friends from all over the world with different culture and life style. We don’t not need pen pals anymore, we can just use online messenger. We don’t have to travel to other country just to get particular item, it can be done through online shopping. We don’t have to rely on television anymore, Youtube is there for you, and Youtube can do much more.

Youtube is not just a website for people to watch and upload video, it is a platform where everyone gets the equality to be famous. It’s like the street, a place where every dancer get the same shot to win. When all those happening event going on and on, Youtube it self, within the community rise up quite a number of entertainer and much more interesting. These entertainer done so many creative production with limited resources which is very impressing, compare to high budget yet lousy production.

The variety of available videos on Youtube is just amazingly mind blowing. From casual videos to cliche pop song, dance videos, funny videos, random videos, you name it. Watching those failed videos is just so inspiring sometimes, it makes you feel good about yourself. Not to mention reading those comment below, it’s like a free brainstorm session. You don’t have to get it started, people would just throw a lot of cool ideas in the comment section.

Now, I am going to introduce some of my favorite Youtube channel. Nigahiga, Youtube number 1. Kevjumba, whom also have another account for charity purpose, JumbaFund. He collaborated with WongFu production for a new web series call Funemployed, also with DavidChoi for producing music for the web series. I also subscribed to MysteryGuitarMan, one of the most creative person in Youtube community. CollegeHumore, one of the most resourceful channel. Last but not least, TheAnnoyingOrange! The most annoying!

The “Bah!” is a one of the favorites expression word for Sabah people. Everyone adopt into the usage of this “Bah!” so quickly that it become the latest trend that everyone talk about. Everyone is using it every where, and it soon become a culture.

The usage of “Bah!” can be versatile and yet dynamic. You can express almost every feeling possible but of course, one at a time, each usage only allowed a single expression. It can be funny, sad, angry, depress and so on. With so many expression you can manipulate using only one word with intonation and loudness. It is also a very useful tool to emphasize on something to extract more of your point out. It can be a very deadly weapon for female to melt the opposite sex too.

Next, I’m going to show how this magic word can be apply in the sentence. But before that there are few rules that indicates the wrong usage of the magic word. The magic word cannot be a substitute for any vulgar words! The magic word is sacred, it is holy, too pure to be use as a substitution for bad words. Besides that, the magic word cannot be use along with any vulgar words. In addition, it cannot be use in a sentence if there are any vulgar words inside. For example, what the fuck bah! No, this is wrong. Further more, the magic word cannot appear more than once in a sentence. For instance, let’s go bah to the movie bah. Again, this is wrong too. You should avoid using the magic word in every sentence. It is best that if there are interval of at least one sentence before using the magic word in the next sentence. It cannot be use to greet people.

The following are some example on the usage of the magic words.

  1. Don’t act like that bah!
  2. Let’s go eat bah!
  3. Cross this line if you dare bah!
  4. I’m fine with it bah if it is from you.
  5. Do your homework bah.
  6. Bah, so what now?
  7. Bah, see you tomorrow.
  8. Bah, take it.
  9. It was the lecture bah, it was all his fault!
  10. Bah…

If you notice, most of the time the magic words always appear as the last word in a sentence, sometimes, it appear as an opening ceremony for each sentence too. Occasionally it appear in the middle of the sentence. When you don’t know what to say and the situation is getting awkward. Feel free to use the magic word, and if the other person don’t know what to say as well, they might reply that magic word too. Repeat this loop until one of you have something to say. This is abit complicated to digest but I will give an illustration through an example of conversation.

Subject A : i don’t know what to say…..and it feels so awkward now….                                  Subject B : ………                                                                                                                         Subject A : bah…                                                                                                                        Subject B : bah….                                                                                                                       Subject A : ……                                                                                                                                Subject B : …………..                                                                                                                        Subject A : bah….                                                                                                                         Subject B : bah…                                                                                                                                Subject A : i still don’t know what to say…                                                                                    Subject B : me too.

See, it makes the conversation alive, it keeps the conversation going on. So those are some tips on how to use the magic words, the rest is up to you. Practice more, find a partner to practice with and you should be able to speak like Sabah people. If you are a foreigners and plan to visit Sabah, you can say ” Sabah bagus bah!” to everyone you met.
