Dancing on the table…

Most of you should probably know by now that I’m rather known for my fiery and serious articles. My big bro Calvin used to tell people that sometimes, my writing left people stunned and reading my words sometimes made people feeel as if they were slapped on both of sides of their cheeks.

Claire thought I was well into my 30s or maybe 40s while Smallkucing sheepishly told me that she thought that I was a plump lady who was also well into her 30s. Thank God a certain Submerryn thought that I am somewhat a personification of a horny fairy. That was actually a compliment, considering that she actually thought that I’m a passionate and romantic woman.

Chrisau on the other hand, thought I was an Indian lady who’s way older than him while a good handful of others thought that I am a man, all just because I slammed women at times.

I wasn’t offended. No worries. It’s amusing. It’s all because of my writing, isn’t it? LOL…most would agree that I sounded very opinionated in my writings, and I hardly show the fun side of me.

Perhaps, most of you are not privileged enough to know that Cleffairy does have a wild and fun side. If you were to tell my school or friends that I am a serious, no-nonsense person, they would probably laughed their head off at your statement, because in truth, I was never a serious person when I was in school. Tell them that I’m a fiery person, they would probably stare at you in disbelief. I was all smile and no frown back then. It is just too bad that along the way, I had to grow up… perhaps a little bit before time as life is nothing but a bitch to me as soon as I left school. I was introduced to many nasty and ugly way of life, and I had to be nasty to survive.

I did many crazy things when I was in school, especially when I was in my honeymoon year. You know, Form 4. Form 4 was literally honeymoon year. It was fun, and I looked forward to go to school every day back then. I did many unthinkable things. Apart from playing football with my ‘boyfriends’ and swimming in the sea in the evening after school, I did many crazy things in the classrooms as well. The classrooms were not spared from witnessing my youthful antics.

I’m not quite sure if you people know what is Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, but to cut the long story short, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai is a famous Bollywood movie that sent many of us Malaysian youngsters into Bollywood fever. It hit everywhere back then, including the shore of my school.

One of the unthinkable thing that I did was danced to Kuch Kuch Hota Hai on the table during recess time just because a friend challenged me to it. Yes… I did… I did danced on the table during recess time, and the best part was, a bunch of other rascals joined me and we danced while singing Kuch Kuch Hota Hai on the top of our lungs. Within minutes, the classroom was turned into a mushy Bollywood scene.

Trust me… it was kinda fun attempting to dance like Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol back then. And it is rather amazing that though none of us were Indian whose mother’s tongue was Hindi, we did sang the bloody song with a horrifying accuracy. I bet Shah Rukh Khan would have beamed with approval if he saw our antics. It was indeed a miracle that the table survived us.

I can scarcely believe that I actually did dance on the table with a bunch of boys who happened to be my best friends, and I escaped the wrath of my short, bald headmaster alive. Yea! Alive… unscathed at that as well. LOL…we were not punished for our antics. Incredible, isn’t it? There was no casualties, instead, we get to bring the sweet memories home with us, and it’s ours to keep.

My teachers, as well as the headmaster, were rather sporting. Some passed by the classroom and did nothing. Instead, they just laughed at our antics and waited for us to sing and dance til the song ended and told us that recess would be over soon, and we ought to come down from the table.

Recalling those times, I wonder… how many teachers these days would let the students have their own classroom fun? I think…the possibility is zero. I’ve always felt that school teachers these days are rather rigid and too exam oriented that they forgot that school is supposed to be fun, and full of youthful exuberance. Headmasters and headmistress…on the other hands, would be worried sick for their students and overall school performance.

It is sad, isn’t it? Brats these days don’t get the crazy fun the brats in my time did. It is just sad that school is no longer place to learn and to grow up. Instead, it became a place where you sit and stare at the blackboard while trying hard to memorize whatever the teacher told you to memorize.

Anyway, I’m not in the mood for serious discussion today. It’s Sunday, and so here I am sharing the song that I danced to 9 years ago. It’s been ages, and almost a decade, but it’s still fresh in my memory.

In the spirit of Sunday morning, let’s sing along. Come now, don’t be shy. 😛


Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

--FEMALE--
Aah, aah aah aah

--MALE--
Tum paas aaye, yun muskuraaye - 2
You came close, smiled like this
Tumne na jaane kya sapne dikhaaye
You don't know what dreams you showed me
Tum paas aaye, yun muskuraaye
You came close, smiled like this
Tumne na jaane kya sapne dikhaaye
You don't know what dreams you showed me
Ab to mera dil jaage na sota hai
Now my heart is neither awake nor asleep
Kya karoon haaye, kuch kuch hota hai - 2
What can I do, oh, something is happening

--FEMALE--
Tum paas aaye, yun muskuraaye
You came close, smiled like this

Kya karoon haaye, kuch kuch hota hai - 2
What can I do, oh, something is happening

--MALE--
Na jaane kaisa ehsaas hai
I don't know what experience this is
Bujhti nahin hai kya pyaas hai

--FEMALE--
Kya nasha is pyaar ka
What intoxication of love
Mujhpe sanam chhaane laga
Has spread upon me, sweetheart

Kya karoon haaye, kuch kuch hota hai
What can I do, oh, something is happening

What can I do, oh, something is happening

Hey, eh

--MALE--
Mmm, mmm

--FEMALE--
Aa aa aa aa, aa

--BOTH--
Aa aa aa aa

--FEMALE--
Kya rang laayi meri dua
What color my prayer has brought
Yeh ishq jaane kaise hua
I don't know how this love happened
Bechainiyon mein chain
In this restlessness
Na jaane kyoon aane laga
I don't know why peace has started to come

--MALE--
Tanhaai mein dil yaadein sanjota hai
In loneliness my heart sorts through memories
Kya karoon haaye, kuch kuch hota hai
What can I do, oh, something is happening

--FEMALE--
Kya karoon haaye, kuch kuch hota hai
What can I do, oh, something is happening

You came close, smiled like this
Tumne na jaane kya sapne dikhaaye
You don't know what dreams you showed me

Now my heart is neither awake nor asleep
Kya karoon haaye, kuch kuch hota hai

Kya karoon haaye, kuch kuch hota hai
What can I do, oh, something is happening

      OMG…. jahat lah this woman. *snort* But turns out I’m way younger than you. LOL… 10 years younger summore. LMAO… you can be my jie! 😛

      Yeah, the principal very sporting. For a reason, I think. He was retiring that year, so didn’t really give a damn about the school oredi. Ahahaha… but the teachers were very sporting. Most of them are like friends to the students…quite rare kind of teachers, I must say.

      Eiiiii… your school got public caning? Eiiii, takut. My school dun hv. We only have cuci tandas!

    • Cleffairy says:

    • Cleffairy says:

      *faint* Actress-like lady? Wahhhhhhhhh…. tonight nonid to sleep d… lol… too happy. Ahahahaha…LOL… I’m only fun and easy going around people whom I’m fond of. LOL… let’s just say you are the privileged few. Though not privileged enough to see me dance like Kajol Mukherji on the table. Ahahahah…

      LOL… I know Datuk Shah Rukh Khan thru Kuch Kuch Hota Hai as well, and it was madness… and the Deepavali that year, I stole people’s attention with my blue saree. Damn. That’s when boys started to look at me like a girl instead of their ‘heng tai’. Gosh! But that’s a different story altogether.

  5. Bananaz says:

    Oh adorable Kajol she is so sweet!!!. Dancing on the table and not ‘dancing on the ceiling’ like Lionel Ritchie haha. Love Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham seen it a few times acted by Kajol too. tQ

  7. ericlee says:

    ahhh….this reminds me of my secondary school…We never exactly play pranks or whatsoever…probably because having a bunch of goody frens back then…if I was what I am now, there will definitely be havoc..LOL…the students neva made much of the jokes besides the occasionally scandal which includes the ridiculous kissing at the back of the school and RM5 blowjob whore…pretty much a lot of the teachers are the jokes of the school…don’t get me wrong..there are several terrific ones but there are several that I hate due to all the correct reasons… I once had this English teacher who is a datin and I absolutely hate her trying to flaunt herself even though she isn’t anywhere close to being hot…SHe acts like a pure Bimbo, talks about how’s her overseas vacation to here and there, how most students wanted to suck up on her especially the bimbos of the class..Good thing I never got to see her again the next year…I was one of the few rare ones that didn’t even bother talking to her and she kinda tried to do so but it just didn’t seems to work..LOL

    • Cleffairy says:

      LOL… thank you for commenting on the teacher’s part. LOL… I’ve been waiting for someone to comment on our school teacher’s attitude… was trying to be subtle zbout it, but everyone seems to see Shah Rukh Khan onli. *pengsan* LOL… you know a teacher who was a datin? Wow… I wonder why she went to school to teach? Her husband must have a lot of mistress outside, that’s why she still needs to work as a teacher. LOL… ok… I’m bad… but that’s the onli logical explanation I can think of.

      I’d hate to have bimbo teachers… thank God mine wasn’t. I adore most of them. Most inspire me and encourage me to do better and allowed me to be myself.. except for my math teachers… they hate me, and I hate them, the feelings is mutual.

      You wouldn’t believe how different I became after i left school… I was such a rascal back then, and never the one to back up from a challenge. And most of the time… when people dares me to do stuff, I ended up doing them. LOL… dancing on the table wasn’t the worst I did in school! 😛

      • ericlee says:

        LOL…not really/…she got her Datin while she’s still a teacher…The place I lived in, there are a lot of Datin that become teacher because children at school and house works all done by maids..husband at work…what else can do in the morning right? You have no idea how some of them insists on us calling her Datin rather than Puan bla bla bla..

        There is this one time when she act super bimbo-ish and i felt like throwing a chair at her face…come inside class, mention her birthday is coming la…hope can get this from husband la…then hint us to get her something which eventually I was forced to share..once, she felt sad over something and ask us to praise her to make her feel better….then bad mouthed other teachers’ fashion sense..it wasn’t funny at all as some of the teachers are very good…btw correction from my earlier comment…she taught us for a few months and out teacher is changed to another one…forgot why…i am the only happy one in the class…LOL

        I wasn’t a rebel at all…just slightly…now…i can say i rebel against a lot of things…i wasn’t as fiery back then…not even close…it’s hard to even imagine I never curse during my Form 4 and Form 5…funny huh? LOL

        • Cleffairy says:

          Cheh! That kind of Datin… just know how to show off their stats. Sickening kind of people. Teacher- Datin. Datin what Datin…Teachers are teachers, and when in school, status should not be in the way. It should be put aside because they are there to educate the students and serve the country, and therefore, they should be addressed as ‘Teacher’. ‘Madam’ or just plain ‘Cikgu’. I would be happy to kick this kind of teacher’s ass… I was pretty rebellious back then when I was in school. Well, still rebellious now too. Ask me to do something that i don’t want to, den you’ll face my wrath. Ahahahah.. that’s just me. But most of the time… I’m sweet to everyone… and goes around chirpee chirpee cheep!

          Wahhhhh! You’re so good boy wan kah? LOL… cannot believe! But then again… if my school friends told you that I’m sweet and smiling all the time, you wouldn’t believe it too, considering how horrible and nasty I sound in my writings, especially in my blog. 😛

          I hardly swear when I was in Form 4 and Form 5 too…but once I went to college…nobody could ever guess that my mouth is capable of blasphemy. LOL…Funny how life transformed us… 😀
