Dr M dan Dorm F (DMDF)

Have you ever wondered when you were in junior years in koleq, what was the one single cruellest thing ever done to you by your prefects?

In the late 80s and early 90s, prefects in charge of Prep School and New Hostel (unfortunately nowadays called; or rather self-proclaimed by them as “Custo” – the short form of custodian – too corny to a cynic like me ha ha) were really given free hands in the running and the dishing out of punishments to the F1s and F2s. I dare say that there was nothing worse than fire-drill or Common Room in those days, nothing that we dreaded so much more than that.

During my first semester break in May 1990, I told my parents that I wanted to leave the school because I couldn’t take it anymore. I can’t remember what was the conversation that took place but I did go on (like so many of us). Otherwise I wouldn’t have been around to tell you all these stories – and it would have been such a waste that what was the best part of my life so far; wouldn’t have been there. And all because of the overzealousness of some 16 and 17 year olds who lorded over us like Gods!

Anyway, in my book the cruellest thing ever done to anyone of us was perpetrated by my own dorm prefect (Dorm E) to Syed Moto (who adopted Dr M for Dr Moto nowadays). I think if we were to rank koleq’s cruellest act pun, over a period of 20 years, this one will always rank high in the list.

Those who have the privilege to know Moto would concur that he was unique. He was the tallest in koleq during our time that he required a special bed made for him to accommodate his long legs ha ha. He speaks like “moto” (laju nak mampus) hence the nickname Moto. He also has the longest name that required a separate IC just to spell his long name.

But when he was in Form 1, he operated a 7-11 store from his locker (to quote Radin ha ha) and it was a really un-kept and messy 7-11, if you know what I mean ha ha. To be blunt, locker dia ada segala jenis barang yg tah hapa2 (e.g. payung!) and memang bersepah giler. The joke among us was that bukak je locker Moto, habis bertaburan keluar barang bersepah macam avalanche ha ha

So not surprisingly he would have been picked on by the prefects each inspection, each night. It was quite a pity that after each inspection locker dia memang kena selongkar and he would spend the time after that to put in order (which never worked ha ha)

So one day, I think after he was given some ultimatum, this prefect went on to check his locker again. I was not nearby (his bed was at the end of Dorm E, mine was right in front of the cube) so I didn’t know how bad was the avalanche (if there was any ha ha).

But the prefect flipped and went back rushing to his cube, took his scissors. The next thing we knew he threw all Moto’s belongings through the big window at the end of Dorm E to the valley two storey below, he cut Moto’s kelambu and ripped the bed sheet etc. – all thrown outside, scattered all over the place.

But wait for it, that’s not the climax.

Moto was ordered to sleep at the corridor for more than a week! Imagine us waking up in the morning each day to find Moto sleeping at the corridor, curled in coldness ha ha ha. That’s why in our book Moto was the sole occupant of Dorm F – created specially for him.

Anyway last night there was a series of e-mail as Leman staged a come-back to make up for February’s appalling NIL point performance; and the jokes evolved from one to another.

Enjoy this – Moto finally gave his own thoughts on how he felt about the incident after all these years ha ha.

Bochap:
ini komplikasi peringkat tertinggi! Kawan2, jangan biarkan doktor moto menyulitkan hidup kita sekali lagi. Cukuplah tragedi Dorm F...

Joe:
saya cadangkan dr m di yellow card macam hoki, 5 minutes duduk tepi padang kerana idea2 dan thesis2 yang memeningkan kepala.. same house? belakang kira

Moto:
sbb tu aku dah immune .. ah .. tak heran duduk tepi padang .. dulu pun aku duduk tepi padang gak .. bukannye aku main ape ape .. tapi aku still boleh jerit dari tepi padang ... wakakaka

Radin:
kesian la kat syedmoto.. korang halau duduk tepi padang.. dulu dia dah kena halau pi dorm F... hahah

Moto:
dorm f .. miahahahahahaha .. teringin aku nak jumpa ID skarang .. kena tanya puyeng ah mana aku nak korek mamat ni

Rough:
laaa dia jadi lecturer kat UniKL. pi lah visit dia he he he

Radin:
kalau ko jumpa ID, call aku.. aku mmg nak pukul tibai dia.. dendam kesumat masih lagi membara ni. ID buat aku mcm hamba abdi masa F1 dulu.

Moto:
okeh .. nanti aku stalk dia dulu ..tahu dulu pergerakan dia .. belajar pattern dia .. kenalpasti saudara mara dan tempat tinggal dia ... peh tu kita atur plan ....

Rough:
laaaaaa yg ni pun kau dah buleh pakai nak revenge..."hello, saya dr m, phd lagi muda dari awak. saya laa yang awak campak barang2 keluar tingkap dorm e dulu and paksa tidor kat koridor."

Radin:
antara barang2 yg dicampak :

1) biskut yg ada bau & rasa ubat gegat
2) payung yg disimpan dlm locker pendek kecik tu..

Rough:
ha ha ha ha yang paling klasik biskut yang ada bau tu gegat tu... rasa aku x tahu sbb tak try lagi
tapi gula pun banyak kan? kalau uncle david x cukup gula dia pi mintak ngan dr m ha ha ha

Radin:
Gula pun ada. Benda yg ko tak terpikir nak simpan pun dia boleh simpan dlm locker tu. Senang cite locker moto ada semua benda. Mcm 7 eleven

Bochap:
kau nak plan apa dr.m? kau nak potong markah dia gak ke?

Moto:
banyak dah devil plan aku develop .. cuma cari masa dan mangsa je ...
Hahahahahahah

Bochap:
tapi dia devil dari besi la dr.m... devil plan kau cukup mantap kah untuk mengatasi dia?

Indeed.

no words could really describe that 'historic' event. aku rasa mcm nak mengalir ayer mata tengok moto kutip barang dia time tu. Dah la kita diharamkan drp tolong dia.

Man, what was he (the prefect) thinking then?

awi said...

[OFF]tahun paling byk aku kena migraine.

Noni Kapet said...

betul laa the part kutip barang tu memang x leh ingat kesayuan nya.

yg lagi sayu was the fact Moto actually tengah berusaha kemas locker dia masa ID flipped tu. He was trying tp tak sampai up to standard...

Aku terlupa part x leh tolong tu... why didn't we all rebel, stage a coup and just showed defiance and tolong?

tp kalau kita tolong rasanya citer locker kena buang ni dah dieclipse ngan kita kena sepak terajang ha ha

nak idopppppp

E67 said...

tu la.. time tu, berani ke nak go against ID?

oo rupa2 nya kau pun nak keluar koleq ye noni? hahaha

abah emil said...

ramai yang nak keluar e67 oiii...

tapi ko sorang je yang kronik sampai HM kenal & ingat...

abah emil said...

rebel???

waktu F2 selalu AJ of the States plot nak rebel. Ajak semua reramai terkam & cubit sorang sekali semua pengawas ketika itu.

tapi itu lah, setakat plotting je la...

abah emil said...

woitt, jom compile kekejaman yang pernah dilakukan oleh brader tu. bukan la dendam, tapi sesaja la. nanti dah tua lupa pulak...

AJ said...

Epit, AJ of the States? Aku ke tu? Ke ada AJ lain?

Anonymous said...

Memang kejam, apa jenis manusia la mamat tu, Kesian kat Moto,tp masa tu mana brani... Mamat tu active T-kwndo la. Dia punya lawak libas tuala kat orang, student mamat ni x suffer ke?

E67 said...

bapak itik,

mana tak kronik, dah stress out.. hahaha

Noni Kapet said...

he he aku pun nak keluar, aku pun x tahu why aku balik semula. masa cuti first semester tu aku dah plan elok2 x nak balik, and dulu cuti sekolah je bawak semua barang ha ha

a' aa leh AJ of the States (senang aku panggil Goor-eyla je la) ada ke nak cubit2 je, giler x macho rebel macam tu.

Kau cubit dia, dia fly kick kau ha ha...

Aku banyak la jugak idea nak merebel masa f1, tp sebb aku sure aku sorng je yg kena balun masa tu, so sonyap je laaaa... terima je laaaaa...

ha ha lawak libas towel tu pun satu. giler nampak psycho, aku rasa dia cherish tengok orang suffer. sbb dia libas ngan tuala, lepas tu orang sakit dia buleh gelak terbahak2.

aku sungguh x paham penyakit apa dia ni, patut dihantar jumpa counsellor ha ha

fadli pun kena penampar sebijik ha ha

AJ aka Gory-la said...

Hmm... kalau dengan izin Allah aku boleh travel back thru time, memang aku gi jumpa balik diri aku sendiri, suruh rebel and create uprising ala-ala V for Vendetta, siap pakai topeng Guy Fawkes lagi. Baru 9 ekor tu tau langit tinggi ke rendah.

Good for them aku kat sini lagi. Don't know what I will do if I stumbled upon any one of them today. For sure it won't be pretty.

Noni, kalau rebel setakat cubit kat pipi memang la tak macho ("ala, nakalnya you ni... geram I nak cubit pipi you.") Kau pernah kena cubit dengan gorilla tak? Sekali kena mau mati pucuk (dengan akar-akar sekali).

joyah geleman said...

perhatian ..
dorm F pun dah dipatent oleh ...

Noni Kapet said...

Joyah Geleman (ni pun kau dah patent Dr M?),

Aku lupa nak ckp la ni memang ada dorm F tak silap aku, kat bilik yg dulu ping pong room dulu. Aku lah AJK Ping Pong room (itu petanda how prefects PS tak suka nya kat aku, dia dah x tahu apa nak assign kat aku dia bagi aku ping pong room!). All the favourites dpt Common Room (Rembell, Barieng n gang kot), Surau (Zadin, Tok Guru etc.). Muka2 lancau mcm aku ngan Sharap dpt ping pong room yang nothing but a store ha ha ha

Gori-la AJ,

Oh OK aku x nak try laa kena cubit ngan kau kalau mati pucuk aku. He he he kalau kau lead rebel dulu aku rasa kitorang ikut tengok body.

Awat 9 prefects je? We hv 10 prefects masa F1 and F2? Wat happen with another one?

AJ Gory la... said...

Aku sampai sekarang nyesal kenapa aku tak laksanakan rancangan nak rebel. One thing I've learned from koleq is that guys that ran by the rules always finish last.

I've kinda pardoned Bogak, so tinggal lagi sembilan pengawas. He had the tough responsibility to ax Kicap at the very last minute to make room for me in the Cagers roster during PPM 1992. How he did it with a straight face is beyond me, so now he's OK in my book; even though that does not change the fact that he was a [bleepin' bleep] in 1991. Plus him, Long John and Suhir were pretty good mentors on the court despite how many times I screwed up that year. Sabar tahap wali-wali diorang dengan perangai aku tahun tu.

Noni Kapet said...

I never thought that they meant to be as inconsiderate and cruel as they were; when it came to punishment. Giving power without proper guidance itu la jadinya, especially at that age. "Power corrupts absolute power corrupts absolutely".

I am sure they thought they were doing the right thing because in their books nothing they did was wrong and reproachable at that time - so when they screwed up batch election at their whims and fancies, tortured the hell out of us, ripped our locker and desk cover over and over again - they thought they did it for our benefits.

So given that foolishness and childishness - I forgive them a long time ago. They were not that matured at that time I guess and could not see issues from all angles, blinded by their sense of power and weight of responsibility. That's why this idea of "Guardian of Tradition", "Custodian" drummed into the heads of these kids is dangerous, and the ones who should be responsible are those adult old boys who go back and carry out this propaganda, without weighing the drowning effect of the weight of pride like that put into the head of 16/17 year old kids!

But I will not forget (I've forgiven everything a long time ago) the double standard that many prefects at PS and NH practice from the yesteryears till today, because to me that is corruption at the earliest level.

That they allowed fellow prefects to roam free there for whatever they wanted to do with the juniors, while had the seniors attempted the same - they'd be sent to DC.

That many of them did exactly the same deeds they used to frighten and blackmail juniors when it comes to seniors.

That they so judgmentally apply their own rule as to who would do well, who would be doomed, who were hopeless and who should be favoured.

The anti-mainstream always had a tough uphill battle to have a fair chance to carve our niche in koleq, because of this attitude and double standard.

But then again our experiment with liberalism and free will at PS 1994 i.e. not to tell what to do and teach them live and let live - didn't work either. I think that batch was cursing at us left right and centre.

So there needs a balance - that only great personalities can give and these people only walk the ground of MCKK once in a while in its long history.

I had my share of experience of holding such 'power' and 'responsibility' at such young age. Being an NH prefect and the one assigned to be one of the 'meanest' (ye lah, takkan nak suruh sharp 93 kot, ye dak???), I believe I can offer some insights on this matter.

We were just thinking about our charges then. Then, the punishments and 'tortures' were dished out just so that they will be able to carry themselves well once they are on their own. It's not us, it's the system.

Having said that,probably some of us took the responsibility a tad heavier than the others hence ppl like ID, etc. But at the end of the day it was your sensibilities that guide(d) your actions, then. I did not be 'cruel'(if you can call it that' for cruel's sake, but when you have charges like chacha of 96 (this is fact, I will not be sued I hope), you might overreact if you are not sensible.

AJ,

I beg to differ when you lumped every prefects who had taken care of us in one basket. That's a bit unfair, I would say. Where do you put ppl like Rudy 91, Maroon 91 or Chomang 90 for that matter? Many of us until today still cite Chomang's contribution.

But then ppl like ID, Kudin and some others just brought all these condemnations upon themselves.

abah emil said...

In addition, I hope there's no 9296 blog tgh mengutuk aku at the moment..muahahahah...

AJ said...

Epit, you're absolutely right. Even though as "a group" I despised them, but individually there's a separate level of anger I felt towards each of them personally. For Comang, definitely he is the one I liked the most among all of them. But still he bit his tongue and let the others did whatever crap they did to us. So, I will go for drinks with him if I meet him today, but I would still (verbally) grill him on why he allowed all those things to happen, and make him pay for the drinks too while I'll run up a huge bill.

However, not all of them will be so lucky if I meet them today.

Who were out prefects in F2 ye? I remembered Bogak, Rudy, Kudin, Maroon... and? Sapa lagi sorang?

hei.. biasanya org comment pendek2 je dlm ni.. ni dah mcm blog yg korang buat..

anyway, aku nak suggest cerite pasal ID torture kita, budak Dorm E b4 games hour. ID mengamuk yg ada orang sangkut plastik air minum (yg uncle david jual tu la) kat wire kelambu tu. abis satu dorm kena torture ie. jalan itik keliling prep school, dorm a ke dorm f.. tapi takde org yg mengaku.. last2 raf sebagai monitor dorm gak yg ngaku.. then, settle.. tak pulak raf kena apa2 pun bila dia ngaku..
