Should I Turn Back Time?
Well today, I have decided to shed some light on one of the mysteries of modern indie era, what my life was before I was DJ Bunga, Patron Saint of all things Indie in Malaysia, Molester of Prepubescent Female Teenagers, Style Guru and Juice Magazine's Urban Archeologist...
I was your average run of the mill teenager when I was in my teens. Back then I was affectionately known as Ah-Kean. I used to do what every regular teenager used to do back then. I was an avid collector of stamps and bottle caps. I guess that was where my fetish for collecting stuff kind of manifested. I was also into gasing and kites. As you might have figured out, I was quite a loner when I was a teen which is why all my favorite activities were ones that I could very much do alone.
All the ass kicking I got and the running away from kids who wanted to beat me up made me loose a considerable amount of body weight. By the time I enrolled in college, I was pretty much looking good like how I look today, except less haggard and druggie looking. When I was in college, I used to hang with the music band kids who were shunned by all others. You might be thinking how band kids can be shunned. Well, unfortunately we were part of the 'cool' band that used to play metal and thrash. We decided to play much more melodic and peaceful tunes like folk and country. I used to play the tambourine in our group. We were called 'The Field Pixies'. All of us had cool names like Winter Fox, Eternal Sun and Little Hummingbird. Mine was Cosmic Flower. (later I decided to drop cosmic and use bunga which means flower in Malay and added DJ in front of it coz you know when I rock the decks I tear da roof off this muh-fucka!)
Well, I know I’m boring you guys with all this but fast-forward around 10 years. here I am at 32, an established and well respected label manager and indie DJ who drives a VIP-styled kenari, still stays with his parents and who's in constant cosmic sized debts.
I know some of my fans out there are wondering what happened to Ah Fai. Well, you know what, karma took place. Ah-Fai is a reknown DVD seller outside Cheras Leisure Mall, stationed outside the Maxis Centre. He had a shotgun marriage with his 23 year old Hor Fun selling wife. I drop by every now and then to buy DVDs from him. I made sure I wore my dopest gear and parked my pimped out Kenari smack dab in front of his stall when i performed said DVD purchases. He always give me the eye and charges me higher though (RM18) but I don't dare say anything still coz I know he might beat my ass into submission with me crying for my dear mommy (like that one time I returned a DVD which i was told is... DVD9 but turned out to be a lousy cinema copy).
Having my ass kicked by DVD Ah Fai
But you know what, I’ve got the last laugh coz I’m living the rock and roll lifestyle now while Ah-Fai is peddling DVDs like some punk street urchin that he is meant to be and ever will be.
p.s. if any of you guys personally know Ah-Fai, please don’t tell him about this post, coz I think there's only so much ass kicking my frail body can take now at my age. I’ll belanja you a drink on Friday and give you a copy of Twilight Actionlove vol.9, the latest compilation if you would come to the DJ console, kiss me on the hand and swear your allegiance to me. Addressing me as 'your highness'...
Provided here is an example of how i wish and hope to see The Loft every Friday...
