இ Finale ~ 7 Random Facts of Bananaz ~ Everlasting Love

Supposedly to be on a low profile but eventually ended up fully exposed and peeled right up from stem to fruits and from head to toe. The 7 Random Facts of Bananaz tagged by Mariuca and Jingle has finally come to an end with this entry. Lina also tagged me with another tag by MKL too on the 7 Links Project. Would combine all together with some slight variations into this entry. Sorry it took a much longer period of time as initially Bananaz hope to complete within 7x7=49 days. Moving backwards chronologically in further peeling the 'everlasting love' of Bananaz.


1. 1993 *18 years* ~ Since we came into this world in our birthday suit it must be nice and comfortable to sleep without wearing anything. Its one of the healthiest ways to relax and my blanket is merely a piece of cloth *of course the real blanket is always on stand by in the cupboard*. Anyway a note of caution here, always have your clothes or robe at a proper place handy for emergency use such as natural calamities, fire and robbery. Would be horrible to see your naked pix in the headlines just like the pix. BTW sleeping naked in Minnesota is illegal. How true?.




2. 1992 *19 years* ~ Bananaz's first pair of faithful Asics jogging shoes almost totally worn out. Currently still wearing them for brisk walking and squash occasionally. This pair of jogging shoes came into the scene after encountering feet problem after the Penang Bridge run in 1991.



3. 1991 *20 years* ~ Not willing to part with this singlet even though its worn out at the upper collar. Somehow not pretty good in throwing away things perhaps its the lifestyle Bananaz was brought up the frugal way.





4. 1992 *19 years* ~ This theme music from 'Airwolf' has been Bananaz's ring tone since he owned his very first hand phone until today *quite certain this Airwolf ring tone will follow Bananaz for life*. *Sorry my first hand phone was a second hand NEC, Bananaz only got the ring tone after purchasing a nokia phone*. Some may remember this macho helicopter pilot Jan-Michael Vincent, whoa really loved to watch him in the TV series. Started off with Celcom am still with Celcom and will be with Celcom. Guess what? My handphone number has never been changed, except during the migration of analog 010 to digital 019.






5. 1980 *31 years* ~ Learned hatha yoga from a lady guru whom the doctors have given up hope on her shoulder and told her she would not be able to use her left arm. Her last resort was to take up yoga, mastered it and got her arm healed and later conducted her own hatha yoga class in her house compound in Penang. The headstand *Sirshasana* and Sun Salutation *Surya Namaskara* would be a daily routine for Bananaz.




6. 1977 *34 years* ~ Another long lasting wedding great electrical iron gift. Changed the electrical cable once and Bananaz got a feeling the much awaited steam iron gotta wait for perhaps another 5-10 years more?.



7. 1970 *41 years* ~ Keeping 5 sen was an accidental 'hobby' as it was a naughty plan to make life 'difficult' for one ticketing lady in State Cinema in Petaling Jaya during our college days. She always make a fuzz over the small change of money especially 5 sen as the entrance ticket cost RM0.65 then. We wanna give her all in 5 sen in one of our purchase for a few tickets but then we are all kind hearted students *ahem* only angry and upset for a short span of time. Bananaz also loves collecting coins from different countries too.

lena said...

nice to know a little more about you. wow, you do that yoga pose everyday? for long how do you hv to keep with that position? what brand is that iron? 34 years is really long..or you seldom iron your clothes?? haha!

[SK] said...

oooh, the finale of the random facts about bananaz series!! and first thing i noticed was that you are living younger and younger as years gone by.. so you are actually Bananaz Button?? hahaha!! or you want to indirectly tell us how young you are now?? 41 years old in 1970, and now 2011 means you are a new born baby!!! :D

[SK] said...

ooopsss, or you actually didn't mean your age, but just how long that year was ago?? hahahaha.. anyway, nice chronological events of your 7 nonsense huh?? enjoy reading it, haha!! really interesting with some facts back then, 65¢ for a movie?? wow, it's now RM12 per ticket, almost 1800% increase!!

[SK] said...

oooh, Bananaz already have a handphone back then in 1991?? hmmm, i wonder what kind of handphone that was, a "dai gor dai" handphone with a briefcase size battery charger?? hahahaha!! hey, do you still keep that?? i really want to see how it looks like, please snap a photo for us with yourself holding on the phone by your ear~~ that must be very classic!! :D

Twilight Man said...

LOL Thambee dei ~ what Bananaz Button!!!
I love this post. It made me emo a bit to reel back my pasts. I have thrown away many old stuffs so I won't be able to blog like you. You really lived your life to fullest!

[SK] said...

ooh, sleeping naked?? no lah, later the mosquitoes bite your banana then how?? hahahaha.. asics, i also have a pair of asics back then in the 90s.. hmmm, wonder where it is now, maybe already degraded somewhere.. hey, so how much in total of the 5 sen you've collected?? that looks like a lot of money..

Twilight Man said...

I think my mobile phone started from 018 to 010 to 019 to 016. I changed so many handphones like underwears! LOL

Twilight Man said...

Adoi silly Thambee SK!!! What nyamuk wanna bite his bananaz? The mosquito might drown of cum. LMAO!

London Caller said...

Sleeping naked is extremely good for me.
Just like wearing boxers is better than briefs.
Different subjects, same principle. Ha~

Malaysia is very hot, even at night.
So I can totally understand that.
Here in England, summer nights can also be cool.
Yes, cool enough to turn rambutans into walnuts.
It's best to wrap up.
They don't use "blankets" here.
They use "duvets" made of goose feather.
But I got a cheap one made from polyester! Ha~

London Caller said...

Typo: 1st sentence.
good for "men"
not good for "me"

Ha ha~ Maybe it's a Freudian slip?!

Daisy said...

It was fun learning more about you Bananaz. I think you might have been a little bit of a prankster with wanting to pay all in small coins. HA! Made me laugh. :)

suituapui said...

That iron can put in museum already. LOL!!!

suituapui said...

You sleep naked? Eyewwwww...must make sure, don't share room with you when travelling.

Isaac Tan said...

hey nice share bananaz, thanks!

You guys were really naughty back in college days ya, making life difficult for the ticket lady!

Some of us are really attached to our old shirts too. I have one which was so worn out it could be used as rags, and yet I still wear it to sleep, to the chagrin of my mrs. Lol!

Sheoh Yan said...

Very interesting and amusing post of you.
1. Goodness you give me a big room to exercise my wild imagination.

Sheoh Yan said...

2. Nikki, please remember what to buy for your dad on next Father's Day.

Sheoh Yan said...

3. This one I can understand, because my husband too cannot part with his yellowish sweat stained and torn out Pagoda singlet. At least yours still have the Penang Brigde Run wording and picture.

Sheoh Yan said...

4,6 and 7. Congratulations to Mango for having such a loyal man to be her husband.

Sheoh Yan said...

5. That's explain why you dare to sleep naked. A person who sleeps naked must be a person who is confident and proud of his body.
Agree?

lol on SK's mossie bite concern.

wenn said...

u definitely feel more comfortable in that pair of shoes!

Small Kucing said...

wa..20 year old baju you still have. Mmm...going to join some more run?

MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE said...

All those are reminisences - can identify with them in person.

Lastly, not very nice of last act : "an eye for an eye" LOL

Stay cool & shed your banana skin sometimes hahaha

lina said...

65 sen for a cinema ticket! But if pay with 5sen, quite hefty load, owh! xD

lina said...

1991 got handphone and can put nice ringtone some more. Bananaz sure one kaya banana, eh? ^^

Bananazஇ said...

lena இ Headstand on a fast count to 300 everyday, iron is National brand and ironing of clothes about twice a week for 34 long years. Touch wood am eyeing the steam iron for some time but will still rely on the old antique haha.

[SK] இ Wow 1800% inflation. Just counted the 5sen totalled 589 coins hoarding 14 coins per year. Sorry 1001 apologies the year was 1992 got my first Nokia hp previous was an NEC bought it second hand. My colleague used that tai-kor-tai in 1991 so very often pinjam his hp. Must be friendly to the mossie they dont kacau me definitely wont bite on that part hahaha..

Twilight Man இ Dunno if its good or bad to throw aways things but since they are usable have no heart to throw. May have changed a few phones but still only when they cant be used only changed. Now using PDA phone got antenna coz its working where else all hp now are without the small little bit jutting out. Mossies know where to bite one hahaha.

Bananazஇ said...

London Caller இ Wanna be free of T shirt or boxer pulling at one angle haha.

Daisy இ Yeah that's a nice word 'prankster' was thinking hard and lost for word like cheeky & naughty haha.

suituapui இ If put museum where got iron anymore? Share room ok what you sleep yours I sleep mine sure request for twin beds lah hahaha.

lina said...

Bananaz,
You and SK same lah... still keep old items in store. But at least that iron of yours still in good condition and yet to be deemed obsolete by you. XD

Bananazஇ said...

Isaac Tan இ Not so much on the attachment but not willing to throw since can be used haha.

Sheoh Yan இ Nikki seldom visit my blog..Bananaz also have the pagado singlets too hahaha. Bananaz is always one woman man *cough cough* or some said one track mind like a train. hehe.

wenn இ Love this pair may been to many places with me as well.

Bananazஇ said...

Small Kucing இ Have not joined any run practically just feel not like running.

MRC இ Yeah admit nasty once haha. Think no more skin to shed already seeing the bones haha.

lina இ Plan not to buy only 1 ticket but a few tickets with 5sen. *evil huh*. Good that this nasty behaviour didnt last long innocent young boy then. Sorry silap year that was 1992, Nokia was my first phone and not sure where I left it. Those days we dont download ring tone but manually key in the symbols into the hp to get the tone. Those days company very generous, all Regional Managers were given company car. Still driving it after 17 years coz Bananaz bought over when I resigned. Very seldom change things would use until they are dead. Hp bills paid by company so tak paya kaya ada butter cukup haha.

lina said...

@Bananaz,
Lucky that *evil* streak didnt last long, eh? LOL

1992 eh? I was still in school - cannot afford handphone. Still relying on public phone until 1999! Hahaha

Buy over company car, good what. COmpany car got scheduled and proper maintenance one. I should know... since my job gets me to keep track Mercs car. xD

Sure kaya owh. No need to fork out money to buy car, buy handphone or pay their bill.s Save a lot of $$$. Where you stash away your cash? ^^

bengbeng said...

seems like there is more yet to be revealed hahaha

Merryn said...

I oso college near State Cinema! Me Stamford gal :D

Merryn said...

when u got the iron as a gift, i was just born !!!!

London Caller said...

What angle?
According to a report done by some researchers, most guys turn right.
Ha~ Is it because most guys are right-handed?

Tekkaus said...

Wow...can really see that you are loyal huh. ha :D

Tekkaus said...

Wow...your pair of shoes can tahan like 19 years? Mine the most 1 year. :p

lina said...

Will there be any revelation of the same type as your first photo in this post, Bananaz? XD

Ever Green Tree said...

That's quite a collection of coins! You have come a long way @ keeping a low profile to being exposed... The journey has been 'Good to get to know u n the family better'

Keats The Sunshine Girl said...

Such amazing revelations about yourself and the things you own. I'm quite hopeless in keeping things for a looong time!

foongpc said...

Ooh! I like to sleep naked! Haha!!

foongpc said...

OMG! That Asics shoe is so old and torn! Quick change into a new Adidas shoe! Haha!!

foongpc said...

Like to keep old stuffs for the memories? Me too, but once in a while I have to force myself to throw out those things I keep! If not, I will have to buy another house to store my stuffs! : D

foongpc said...

Oh! I like the Airwolf theme! Used to create a ringtone of the theme on my old handphone : )

foongpc said...

Wow! You learnt yoga? I have never dabbled in yoga before in my life!

foongpc said...

Wow! That iron looks damn ancient! Still using it?!!!

foongpc said...

I don't collect coins except from foreign countries. I prefer to collect RM100 bills hahaha!!

rainfield61 said...

You can have a new T-shirt this year if you are willing too.

To renew a 20-year old memory.

khengsiong said...

NEC sold cell phone in Malaysian? I thought it only make cell phone for Japanese market...

One said...

Oh dear! You have a museum at home! You must be a sentimental bananaz.

Congrats! Your caption has been selected and being posted at Onenezz today!

eugene said...

yvonne said...

This piece of entry about bananaz 7 random facts is really interesting.

1st, I've never tried sleeping naked before. Not in the favour to try it out later.

2nd and 3rd, wow at bananaz who still keeps the shoes and shirt faithfully. The highest turnover rate is my wardrobe, hehehe!

4th, I changed many phones and numbers since 12 years ago and I don't remember all the others except the current one :p Memory no good.

5th, wow again as bananaz has learnt yoga for 31 years and I'm only an amateur compares to you. Psst... I like sun salutation too ;)

6th, hmm, this iron looks familiar. I think my mom has one. Nostalgic!

7th, I used to have old coins, handed down from my dad. He loves to collect all sort of coins and notes. Ok, now I need to remember where I stored them.

Err, I lost my count. Did bananaz really post up one entry per week for 7 weeks?? It seems like following a drama/series, only longer.

jam said...

Is the one naked in the first picture is you?

Hayley said...

This is interesting!
And that pair of shoes!! Must bring alot of memories to you.. hehe...

Caroline Ng May Ling said...

i oso love collecting coins !! :D:D

Bananazஇ said...

lina இ Think students cant be 'evil' but love to be a prankster. Tak ada lah not enough to makan where to stash away the cash..hehe.

Bengbeng இ Cant 'strip' anymore further revealing the bones aleady.

Merryn இ We stayed quite near to State Cinema a walking distance only. You are Stamford gal used to chat up with Goons gal just a floor below us haha. So sama sama age as my iron..

Bananazஇ said...

London Caller இ Left handers only take up less than 15% of the world population.

Tekkaus இ Yes very loyal Bananaz. Oh the shoes followed me to the even the worst place, Outward Bound School. Gone into sea water, climb mountains and the one particular sport I love most is abseiling for that Bananaz have to beg and requested the instructor to allow Bananaz to do it twice.

lina இ No no more of the first pix shy lah hahaha.

Casendra said...

Your asic can last 19years???? Walau... salute ...

Bananazஇ said...

Ever Green Tree இ Intially thought of not revealing whether Bananaz's a male or female and to keep the readers in suspense, but some how realised there's nothing to really hide about and perhaps can be closer to readers instead.

Keats இ Bananaz is quite cautious of taking care of things and would treat them fairly. Its good to learn how to throw away things that we do not need or wear them anymore. Bananaz is partially a pack rat by nature who is good at hoarding things.

foongpc இ Gimme 5 for sleeping in birthday suit. Still wearing the Asics for morning walk lah but got anther pair which is Nike *think will also stick with Nike for life too* coz Bananaz is one track mind and a loyal man haha. Have been wearing Larry leather shoes to work since 1980's and got a pair of Hush Puppy as my birthday gift from Mango.

Bananazஇ said...

foongpc இ those days no downloading of ring tones gotta create one haha. Next time if you happen to hear this ringtone most likely Bananaz is sitting next to you. Yup love yoga and the iron is still hot and working order. Bananaz do keep foreign coins and also have the square Malayan coin think 1/4sen & 1/2 sen as well.

rainfield61 இ tQ that's so kind wanna my address..haha.

khengsiong இ Yeah cant remember the model no. its NEC Primero a big and long bulky too where you flip the antenna instead of pull. The person who sold it to me was my bozz's dad who wanna buy a new smaller and lighter version of NEC phone.

London Caller said...

I try to train my left hand to do other things.
I use my left hand to control the computer mouse.
Because it's easy to use my right hand on the number pad.

Bananazஇ said...

One இ True keeping old things at home, some sentimental value some still working condition. tQ for posting my caption.

eugene இ What's that Chinese word 怀旧 wait let me check with MDBG..oh yes nostalgia. Great we are both sentimental in our own way. 1 sen cant be used anymore so how? Moreover out of circulation wont be able to continue getting em. Bananaz would go to Mydin look out for bananas at RM3.46 buy em and get the 5 sen change hahaha. Wait slowly think got old stuff my sony 14" TV already 19 years old sometimes in color sometimes black & white haha. Would use is as spare in case my unifi is offline can watch NCIS on Monday nite.

yvonne இ Think ladies seldom sleep naked but better without bra according to experts. You take yoga as well great. Bananaz got this problem of discarding things which can still be used like hp would used until the ON button is condemned or keypad got problem or speaker muted. haha. Oh supposed to complete in 7x7=49 days but was long delayed for a few months.

Bananazஇ said...

jam இ No bro not me chiak lat if its Bananaz haha.

Hayley இ That pair of shoes been tortured seriously, into sea water while in OBS and mud while playing paintball and around the world of course before this torn condition. Still wear em for morning walk.

Caroline இ You love collecting coins too. Foreign & local? Bananaz used to collect the RM2 coins but it stopped now collect 5 & 50sen coins.

Bananazஇ said...

Casendra இ Yeah 19 faithful years, soaked in sea water in Lumut while canoeing, swimming and sailing, in the mud playing paintball, travel around the world, jogging in 10km competition, hiked Mt Kinabalu etc. Almost condemned at this condition merely for morning walk as there is totally no 'flower' aka thread at the base already.

London Caller இ Bananaz got worried dunno how to use right hand on chopsticks anymore. My mouse would be going on rotation left and right on regular change.

Casendra said...

Ahahaha.. really 19! you know what, at first i tot my calculation really that bad so i use calculator to calculate again. hahahahaha.... wah must learn from u how to take care of shoes jor. I hate keep buying shoes as well, my sport shoes i think most faithful one was 3-4yrs only then declared death :(

Life Ramblings said...

nothing wrong with sleeping naked as long as your daughter doesn't barge in.

Life Ramblings said...

wow, amazing that you're still wearing those worn out shoes. Bananaz memang boleh!!

Life Ramblings said...

i love Airwolf and i enjoyed the theme too. i never missed watching it every week.

Life Ramblings said...

that's a cool yoga pose. is that really you? i don't think i can hold this position for even five seconds. lol

Life Ramblings said...

wah, i didn't know that you're an avid collector of 5 cents.

Bananazஇ said...

Casendra இ How do you wear your sport shoes to condemn within 3-4 years? Over stressed em? haha. Bananaz pretty *small heart* taking care of things. Like my 1st Latitude Dell laptop bought in 1977 and the original battery lasted 7 years. Bananaz would not have changed it if it had USB port. Subsequently bought two more laptops also Dell in year 2004 XP version *strictly for office use* and year 2008 Vista *for general use*.

Life Ramblings இ Daughter sleeps in separate room. Shoes can be used so got no heart to throw away but quite run down actually. You liked Jan Michael Vincent too? Yes yours truly with the headstand holding on to a count of 300 every morning. Yup Bananaz is a collector of 5sen by accident & 50 sen and foreign coins too.

CH Voon said...

you are getting more more popular now.

not need to hide inside the skin, we know who you are now kekeeke

CH Voon said...

for sure, that guy which censored is NOT you! hehehe he look like africa guy.

er... You can sleep naked but make sure you double lock your door.

CH Voon said...

it is time to change a new jogging shoes :)...

the t shirt also look old ... time to change too. :P

CH Voon said...

so ING, your phone ring tone. I cant believe it.

But, i really like this movie for sure... if i am not wrong, this movie is played at friday 10:30pm gua... (Last time)

CH Voon said...

Yoga so more... you expose too much oledi.

Bananaz know a lot of times!!!!

OH... you keep a lot 5 sen, kekekee... why keep so small amount.

Keep the 50sen, it is more valuable and you sell it at pasar road at price RM1

Bananazஇ said...

CH Voon இ Really? OK pace catching up slightly nowadays. So no more hiding under the skin exposed to the bones now haha.

Surely not me bro downloaded pix from internet. In fact got on enice pix about a naked man climbing down the ladder from the fire truck but dunno where to find it anymore.

Bananazஇ said...

CH Voon இ Shoes & singlet can still be used so no need to throw away so sayang moreover times are bad bro..haha.

Seldom watch TV now but those early days was a TV addict eating dinners in front of TV.

Bananazஇ said...

CH Voon இ Bananaz also take up Tai-chi but gave up a couple of decades ago due to space problem in the house stopped practising tai-chi but continue on with yoga. Yalor have been over exposed huh..haha no more suspense already. You & Merryn have not guess my age right yet hoh and you still owe me one Pappa Rich ice kacang hahaha.

Can sell 50sen for RM1? Sure or not???? Bananaz also keep 50sen coins the big piggy bank already full now keep in smaller one. My 5sen totalled 589 pieces after 41 years a bit slow.

Autumn Belle said...

Just like Harry Porter series, you have some magical stories in 7 parts. Now, here's my 'inference':

You are a sentimental and loyal person. There is someone whom I have known for most of my life who has similar habits like you.

JK Rowlings became a millionaire long before she finished writing the 7 part series. Now, perhaps it's your turn? So, Good Luck!

Casendra said...

Probably :P hiking, jogging, gai gai(jalan jalan), travelling all same shoe, thats the reason guah... but i dont have asics :P hehehe... laptop battery last more than 4 yrs with same practise, hehe, probably this one i can compete with u :P

Luciana said...

fuyoo bananaz, u so setia :)
but memang best sleep with old singlet,rite?

Bananazஇ said...

Autumn Belle இ Sentimental & loyal? Hm nice to know that some said Bananaz like a train going straight ahead with one track mind. Oh same person same habits like Bananaz? Your dad or hubs? haha. How I wished to be a millionaire tQ for the well wishes.

Casendra இ Maybe Asics is more lasting, I have other shoes like you said also 'died' within a short span of time.

Luciana இ Yes memang setia hahaha. No singlet at all, nothing. Can also save washing and detergent.

Thristhan said...

I still do have my collection of 5 cent and 1 cent coins. Bottles of them at home, wonder what I'm going to do with them :)

Bananazஇ said...

Thristhan இ 5 sen still got value but 1 sen are like scrap metal haha. Bananaz do have the 1 sen too since you brought it up what we gonna do with them? tQ for dropping by.

Leovi said...

I love that series of sympathetic memories.

Thadeus said...

It can't work as a matter of fact, that is what I consider.
