I have always loved green and have almost everything green.
Be it wallet, bag, colour of my room, shoes and clothing, it will always be green.
Serving NS was one of the happier times in my life as well as most of the items were green and I get to wear green most of the time.
Most of the time when I go out, I would also wear green.
I have these two closer friends, a Chinese guy and a Malay guy and we go way back from our Secondary school days.
They have always made fun of me and my love of green.
Whenever they see something Green they would call out my name and say that it belongs to me or that it is me for example the common green dustbin you see under your HDB block.
There was once where they saw me wear a green top which I owned for about two years back when I was 10 kg lighter, they started calling me ‘Ba Zhang’ and ‘Ketupat’ because it looked small and tight on me.
From that day onwards, these two food, ‘Ba Zhang’ and ‘Ketupat’ has been my nick name.
I’m sharing this not because I feel offended by it but I just feel that we should all embrace and love ourselves no matter what and who we are.
