Good old days with lil' bro and sis'

If you think my family is rich (each one of us got a bike), you're dead wrong. We have mom to be thanked for these bikes because she'd been nagging my dad to buy 'em for us since all the kids in our neighborhood have one. Mom's nagging was so amazing considering the fact that dad just earned roughly RM900 at that time.

I got that red bike back in 1995. In 1995, every kids rode a bicycle with 'tayar span'. Only cool rich kids rode a BMX. When I first got that bike, it was the greatest feeling in the world. I was so happy with my dad that I feel I could pijak belakang badan my dad all day long. A routine I used to hate because he always asked me to pijak his belakang when I wanna watch the TV.

Getting a bike is one thing. Getting a RED bike is a whole another thing. It changes the whole new dynamic of kid's bicycling world.

You see, back in my time, Power Rangers was like the coolest kid show ever. Every kids loves Tommy, Jason, Kimberly, Zack, Trini and Billy. In my neighborhood, I was the only kid with a red bike. So I gotta be a Jason. We even had our own Kimberly, Billy, Zack and Trini. We didn't have Tommy because there are no kids with white/silver bike.

The funny thing is our Trini was a guy. His name is Reza. Poor fella. His dad yang-tak-pernah-tengok-Power-Rangers bought him a yellow bike one day and we laughed our ass off when he rode that bike for the first time. I swear his bike was like the cutest bike ever. 

One day, it was Reza's birthday. His mom invited all kids in our neighborhood to celebrate his birthday. There was even a mini-party in his house. Me and my perasan-Power-Rangers buddies went to that party. After all, how could fellow Rangers missed another Rangers party, right?

So, after Reza blew the birthday cake's candles out, we kinda wanted a piece of his birthday cake. But Reza tak bagi! He said we can't have the cake simply because we're being kinda jerk for calling him Trini. I mean, who would like to be called after a complete contradictory character to yourself? Hahaha.

Obviously, his act caused a scene and he was forced by his mom to give the cake to us. Surely enough, he went to his room and cried. 

The story was soon got into my mom's ears and I was getting my ass whooped for being a jerk-off Jason. The next day, Power Rangers in my neighborhood telah dibubarkan. Keamanan kawasan kejiranan kami kembali pulih.

haha. beskal mmg ibarat memiliki superbike semasa kecil. kira tak ckup 'lelaki' la klu xde beskal. wtu kcik aku sebok nak beskal harimau hasil kontrak perjanjian bertadika tanpa ponteng sebulan. dpt beskal tu ibarat dpt sebuah zx-14 ninja. pendapatan bpk aku wtu lbk kurang 1k. dan basikal tu dah menghabiskan suku gaji bapak aku. ya, bila fikir balik aku adalah anak durjana.

Woohoo.
Yeah, I got a bike when I was a kid and that bike was super cool because it was one of the LeRun bike.
I got that for my birthday present and I used it till I get into primary school.
Now my sister is using the bike.
