Hello there. I am Terry and I am a full-time undergraduate based in Singapore. I take photos, write a blog and design websites.

And no, I'm not a teddy bear.

Everything Grows… Except For Height

Woke up today morning and found that my hair needs a grooming, as it’ve been left uncut for 1.5 months already. Went to water my little bean sprouts that I’ve secretly planted in the flower bed just downstairs, and found that it’ve grown much taller.

On the way to school, found that the road in my school gets much congested compared to the first year I’m here. Hey, traffic actually grows, too. Took a last glance on the construction work site of our new school block before entering the school compound. It’ve “grown” a lot compared to a few months ago when it started off as a piece of cleared land.

If you think I’m some very handsome guy, let me tell you, you’re wrong. Totally wrong. Sorry to burst your bubble, if I really did. I’m short and skinny, like a starving child suffering from malnutrition. I’ve been the laughing stalk of people around me, but then I’ve accepted it as a fact, since I’ve not grown any taller since Secondary 1.

My height is kept secret here, but feel free to ask from my friends, which might give you an inaccurate information of my height. They thought I’m actually 130+ cm. Hello? I’m not that short, okay?

Mum tried lots of ways to let me grow, including giving me some medicine that the Chinese doctor says that will induce a fever in my body and increase cell metabolism, temporarily increasing my growth. That’s stupid, and of course, it didn’t work. She cooked lots of weird soups that will help my growth. None of them really helped.

I went swimming every weekend. Neither it helped. Play basketball? I am not interested. I think it is quite ridiculous for a bunch of people chasing around the court for a miserable ball. Like Jin, I just like staying at home doing some non energy-consuming stuff, like cleaning, reading, programming, computing and BLOGGING.

Argh, just don’t know when or whether can I grow any taller… will I always stay at the height of X cm? I really hope I don’t =)
