errrr My pic when i was kid ;)

It touched me a bit, reading Irwan's entry today... He shared some memorable photos of him as a kid...

The touching bit was, it all suddenly reminded me of my own childhood... I do not keep any photos from my younger days... All of the memorable pics have since gone missing, destroyed or totally "condemned"...

I remember having posted about this once before...

When I was a kid, my skin tone was really, really dark, and I had big eyes, with super curly hair. People around me called me an "anak negro" or "anak India"... an aunt even regarded me as the son of an Orang Minyak! I grew up somehow in a depressed state of mind... And when I was old enough to think about it, I asked myself if I was an adopted son??? Being surrounded by siblings with fair complexion, that seemed to be the only answer!

When I was about seven years old, the pressure and jeering from my friends made me hate seeing my own pics, or hated being photographed... So, I ended up ruining any pics which had my face... I scribbled my pics with magic color pens, or cut up the pics into small shreds, and threw them away... To mum, I was just being naughty... Furthermore, I dislike seeing myself in the mirror!

So... that was the touching bit of the memory of my childhood... But now, I sometimes laughed over it, asking why I was being so unfair to myself! Now, I am left with no pics of my childhood!

But hey, like most happy-ending fairy tale, by the age of 14, miraculously, my skin tone turned fairer and fairer... and the super stubborn curly hair straightened itself slowly... Most of my relatives were shocked by the change...

And that's why I now love taking pics of my own self, or allow people photographing me... sebab masa kecik tak puas bergambar? kekekee...


p/s: now I wish my skin is a golden tan ;)
