谈谈老友 Talking about old friend

耶稣有一位朋友,也是我三十多年的朋友,他叫苏初开,但信仰的不是耶稣。

他为人正直,谦逊,朴素,勤劳,有爱心,言谈风趣。他白手兴家,当年我们认识的时候,他是骑着一辆甲仔(Honda Cub), 现在已是千万富翁了(哈哈,这是秘密,他自己假装不知道!)。。。但有一点守旧。不过守旧是一个美德。他的电话是诺基亚3210(很旧很旧的那一款)。

我常常笑他太节省了,赶不上潮流,应该换一台较新款的。有一天,他来我的办公室,我拿起他的电话,往地上大力一丢,电话的塑胶壳破开两片,我以为这次他一定得去换台新的电话了。

他把电话从地上拾起,将壳合回,按了按几个键。。。脸上露出骄傲的笑容。。。“你看,这是一台好机,没问题。。。还可以用一排(广东话意思是很久)” 。 吹胀!

今天下午三点,我到他工厂和他的弟弟阿伦(Alan)见面。Alan是他的得力助手,管理厂里的一切货物及生产。

我突然发现一台新的电脑。。。。哈哈,少有。阿苏哥是“电脑盲”。电脑不会用,手机不会传短信。

我就好奇的和 Alan 及 员工叶小姐谈起电脑的事,再谈到上网。。。当然就要提到我的部落格了!

我介绍给他们我的部落格 。。。。哈哈,新发现。

当时在场的还有一位朋友张小姐。我邀请他们登录我的部落格,并且留言。假如有不满意,就留言@#¥%&×¥@, 我就知道是来自他们了。

千万不要给老板知道就好了!

Ah Soo (Soo Chor Hoy) is my old friend of almost 35 years. We used to joke about his friend Jesus (Ye Su in Mandarin), but he is not a Christian.

He is simple, humble, hard working, kind and humorous. He built up his business single-handedly. When we met 35 years ago, he was riding a cub-zai (Honda Cub) but now he is a multi-millionaire (It is a secret. I bet he himself pretending doesn't know that...:D) but a little old fashioned. Actually it is one of his virtues. He is still using a Nokia 3210 (an old old model).

I always joked with him that he needed to change his phone to a newer model ... be a little bit trendy. One day, he came to my office, I took his phone and thrown on the floor... the covers opened and scattered. I thought this time he has to change his phone.

He picked up from the floor, re-assembled and pressed a few buttons to test.... he smile triumphantly..."you see, a good phone, still can use for a long long time.." chui jiong!

Today, at about 3:00pm, I went to his factory to meet up with his younger brother Alan. Alan is his able assistant, taking care of goods and productions.

I noticed a new desktop! Haha... very strange... Ah Soo is IT illiterate, he doen't even know how to send SMS.

I talked to Alan and his staff Miss Yip about the computer, surfing the net and.... of course my blog!

Present also was a visitor Miss Cheong. I invited them to visit my blog and give comment. If I see @#$%^&@, then I know is from them.

But please do not let the boss know about it!

很可爱的故事及人物!

真幽默,可惜没有看到庐山真面目,不然会更生动。下期盼季刊摘录它,老大意下如何?

他和我连同禄声从诗巫驾车到汶莱参加你们汶莱圣母军的庆典,好多年前了,记得吗?我和他拍的照片不知放在那里了!

车上还有“尖不大”对吗?是圣母军金庆吧!但我还是想不起那位仁兄真面貌,或许那时真的好忙缘故。有空我会再找找看。
