Old Beng : A Pseudonym

Ever since I started my Blog "lim peh ka li kong", I have been writing under the pseudonym of "Old Beng" and other times in Chinese some old articles written some years back.

Friends who know me as I am in reality seem not able to understand that Old Beng is just a made-up character and not able to accept my non-sense tales. The most obvious difference is the numbers of children Old Beng has and his "Fiona look-alike wife" cos in actual life, this is not true.

Oh please, in our fast pace-moving society we are having now, who on earth with a sound mind will have 12 children. I have a friend who has 5 children and for that I really salute him.

So if you are a personal friend of mine, please read Old Beng´s tales with an open mind and do not get confused over the real me in life.

Old Beng : 40 years old married with 12 children and stays in HDB driving a van and working as an office PKL man.

Real me : 40 years old married without children used to stay in HDB driving a car and working as an Executive Operator in the Petroleum Line.

The reason for this clarification is that I am thinking of touching on certain incidents and wanting to share the real life which I am now going through. Who knows, I may even upload some photographs to share.

In other words, whether I am writing my real life incidents or using Old Beng to spice up my articles, I do hope to bring a smile on your face whenever you read them.

    Old Beng
    Still like to call you that. Actually regardless of whether you are married with kids or not, makes no diff and I will still continue to visit your blog. I also share spinnee's question, why the sudden confession?

    Er, can you give me back all the toys which I brought to your house, for your 'children'?

    I would like to take back my comments about you looking like Andy Lau. Actually you are more like Liu De Hua's brother - Liu De Hen.

    Sobs sobs sobs....aiyo, how can you bluff me....I have been your fan since in YMB....and I 100% believe in your stories and your given fact, everything. End up, I am being 'not in a sound mind'???

    Ok lah, lets come back to the reality world. Actually, everyone in the virtual world would hide their true identity for many reasons. Which I think, mainly to get away from the reality & cruelty of living.

    It is like a fairy tale when you tell a child that Snow White and the Prince will live happily ever after. What will you think will happen if you tell the child that Snow White died after eating the poison apple? Sobs...sobs...sobs...

    Tracy, not everything in his stories are fictitious. Some of what he wrote, is true of the real Beng - he farts a lot. You should see how fast he swims in the pool.

    Mr Lim(or is it Mr Kong), can I have the toys?

    Anyway who in SINGAPORE would hav 12 children.But u say u got tattoos is tt true???

    This is the most crucial part tt i would wan 2 noe ;)

  • At Wednesday, November 09, 2005 9:44:00 AM , Blogger Old Beng said...

    Ai-yo, Old Beng is not fake la, just made-up character written by the real me to touch on certain issues through his eyes and family.

    Think I got more "scolding" feedback than I expected.

    Hello Daphne
    You are absolutely right, don't think there is anyone in Singapore now has 12 children but some of our older generation did have 10 to 12 children. I personally know 2 families with 10 and 11 children each.

    Why is the issue on tattoo a crucial part of your question?

    Old Beng will continue to write his tales in his blog and in fact I had a weird dream last night and think I will post it up to share with you.

    I wan 2 noe tt if ur true self hav tattoos is bcoz I hav great interest abt tattoos.

    Plz answer directly.

  • At Wednesday, November 09, 2005 11:12:00 AM , Blogger Old Beng said...

    Why do you have great interest on tattoo, may I ask? Hope you are not thinking of having one yourself.

    Old Beng has 2 tattoo but I only have a big birthmark and some scars which look like tattoo.

    I don't think a student your age should have tattoo cos it cannot be removed if you were to regret having it later on.

    Maybe you can try the "drawing" kind which can be cleaned/washed away after couple of days, so at least you have had "tattoo" and also able to get rid of it after that.

    For me, I won't mind the temporary ones but am against the real tattoo kind.
