i've decided to leave out any names in my post titles, since i'm the only one that can read them. so now i'm just naming them as entry 11, entry 12 etc.
today is hari raya haji. when muslims from around the world complete the mandatory part of their pilgrimage to mecca, and this is to celebrate that event (note to Dmitri: it is NOT Allah's brithday. God has no birthday). so after coming back from camp yesterday with that stupid slopey feeling still hanging around, i had to wake up early this morning for prayers. almost didn't want to, but i knew i had to. then in afternon went to my cousin's house. was completely zombified until we started playing cards. then i came back to the world of the living.
since there isn't much to update, this post is gonna be kinda short. but there is something to note. one thing that i forgot to mention in yesterday's post about kluang. there was a little... incident that happened on the third day, which i won't describe in detail, but which resulted in us cleaning the toilet. and so was born the team of shit diggers. me, zheng hao, darren chew, and reuben.
the story in brief: one of the toilets was being particularly irritating, cause it was choked with some kind of hard substance, which no stick or rubber tube could dislodge. so it was up to me, darren chew and zheng hao to try and unchoke the damned toilet. as mentioned before, nothing could dislodge the thing without someone actually sticking their hand into the completely full toilet bowl. whoever wanted to was quickly discouraged from that course of action by the others who couldn't bear even the thought of doing so.
the last and only thing to do was to try and empty the bowl, so that we could see what it was that was causing the choke. so i took some sort of garden instrument that had a scoop at the end, and started 'shovelling' the shit water out of the bowl, and poured it onto the toilet floor, while darren chew was on a raised portion, and trying his absolute best to spray the stuff into the drainpipe, with a pathetically short hose that had a hole in it. my hat goes off to him for standing in the cubicle so long while i was at the door scooping out the liquid.
my hat also goes to reuben. one of the cubicles was marked as 'out of order', but some joker still decided to poop in it. as it turns out, the cubicle was out of order because of all things, the flush didn't work. so whoever took a shit in it, there was still a piece of shit there on the inside of the toilet bowl. reuben was the only one who dared to try and scoop it out, with the same tool that i would later use to scoop out the shit water.
for the shit diggers.
