THE INCONVENIENCE OF LEFTY AKA LEFTHANDED

Being left handed or lefty means there are a lot of little everyday inconveniences throughout my childhood until I am at my age now.

I read lefties are normally is in the gene. Too bad...I am the only 'ugly duckling' in my family! The one and only lefties! I have one 'mole' on my lefthand. I can only recognise the left and right using this mole. Yeah! I am that woman who still unable to tell the left and right without my 'mole'. Gosh! that bad ar this woman? Ya lor! isk isk isk

When I was cute adorable little girl....I received countless spanking to my wrist by the elders who was trying hard to force me change from being a lefty. Bad Omen! WTH! So tortures!!!!....I wish I grow up very fast at point of time and give them a hard spank too! How dare???....hehehehe...Anyway, the stubborn me never give up and determine to be a lefty forever!!!! muahahaha... the fact is...IMA tried my best but unable to change the lefties fact in me.isk isk isk...

Remember those days, feel very weird why others can use the scissor and knife easily and I am until now still struggle to use one. Thank God nowadays they invented the scissor for lefty like me. Whenever I joined a 'ping pong' or badminton club, I would be the one without anybody to play with. I guess they unable to accept my 'good' skill..eheh! Many commented they got confuse because I am lefties and don't know how to play with me. huhuhuhuh one lonely girl grow up playing ping pong and badminton by herself. I always got 'alienated' by my schoolmate for being lefty. No joke! I hate school so much  and really dying to grow up faster!

During one of the class IMA still remember we are using the fountain pen to do the cursive writing, IMA don't understand why others writing turn out so beautiful but IMA got the most ugly one. Ah! its because that pen meant for the right hand not left hand. The ink smudged all over my hand and paper too and the writing always turn out ...haishhhhhh... don't even want to recall how it look like back then. Now when I grow up and old enough to understand....Oh! I got scolded from the teacher for nothing wei!!!! Not my fault wor...thats the pen fault! Even until now...my hand will be dirty with ink whenever I start to write. isk isk isk

Not only the pen...even the vegetable peeler seems not cooperating at all isk isk isk

Now that I am an adult, I have problem when being seated during dinner time at table with others. My elbow will end up playing kung fu with the person next to me. WTH ! People will stare at me if I pick the spoon from my left hand. I used to be concerned about all this...but now...nahhhhhhh....I care less about all this. Stare at me??? huh!!!! I will throw back my laser beam eyes to you......ngeng ngen ngeng...  Don't play play ar!!!

Now that getting ageing, I realise my left hand has been very tired a lot due to hard work. I try to work up my right hand instead...well at least that fella has been resting for quite sometimes and its time to work...but still cannot do. My left hand are more comfortable to use. haiissshhhh.... poor my left hand. IMA so love my left hand and yet nowadays feel overworked.

Perception  about the lefties people....

1. Lefties are intelligent and creative

2. Able to learn foreign language better and quicker

3.  visual memory is more developed

4. more flexible and capable of switching over hand for performing tasks easily

5. Quick thinking when playing games or sport and consider a better player

6. often exhibit fighting nature

Goshhhh....is that so??? Ah! why IMA feel so lacking here????
Why??? Which part of all above are applicable to me???? Tell me??? malhae? malhaejur!!!!!
I end my rant with HAPPY MALAYSIA DAY ALL!!!!

  2. Being a lefty definitely has its disadvantage but I guess it's important that we accept who we are and embrace our nature. Of course, with determination, those who are right handed could also learn to use their left hands and vice versa....but at the end of the day, the natural instinct will be to use the ones that you are familiar with....it was a great post on Malaysia day as well!
