Mar 17 2003

I barely knew Samio Ho and have taken no initiatives in getting to know him since September 02. Being in his math (mechanics) and economics class, he is one of the people I see almost everyday. Passing him at the corridor isn’t uncommon. Conversations have been curt and brief, one thing that he impressed me was his creativity.
It is a bit of unfair and overgeneralization to say that the impression he has given to me was either positive or negative. I’d better make it neutral.
On February 14th he was disappearing from his math class (period 7-8). Which, again isn’t uncommon, and none of the student nor the teacher in his class were surprised. The system works like this. To check that whether he’s missing the class intentionally or having a valid excuse was easy, all you have to do is to check his afternoon and morning registration records down at the general office. And it took no time for Mrs Letters to do that, yes, indeed he was missing the class without a valid reason, even when there was no homework, no tests due in period 7-8.
In Monday morning he had a chat with Mrs Rowlands, the head of year 13. Apparently not too pleasant, and unfortunately I came across him at the corridor outside senior school center. Samio, confused and irrationally, grabbed my neck tightly and tried to threatened me. I, too, was confused.

Samio, “lay ng tor or ah?” (Cantonese: having problem with me? Dislike me?)


Samio, “fong hok jek chau eh….!” (Cantonese: you wanna challenge me and fight after school, one-to one?)

Me: “I’m not dealing with you”

Samio, “jek chau eh, I dare you” (Cantonese: yeah, one-to-one with me. I dare you)
He squeezed my neck even tighter

Me: “I said I’m not dealing with you”

At that very moment, Mrs Hoang walked came out of the Senior School center, and witnessed the second half of the ill-timed incident.

Mrs Hoang: “hey what are you guys doing.”

Silence. Samio was still holding my neck, utterly shameless of his act, and ignoring the presence of the teacher.

Mrs Hoang, “stop it, this is not what you should be doing at school. What are you doing??”

Me: “he’s threatening me”

Samio: “nothing….. personal issues” He released me and left the opposite direction.

And of course, by doing that, Samio Ho brought himself into even deeper trouble (or frustrations, or nonsense he’ll say) he took satisfaction in creating his own virtual enemy and refused to stop his physical and verbal assault on me dated until the day this was written. Unreservedly immature, inconsiderate and naïve. I choose not to retaliate and let him take all the blame. He is applying for Canadian universities, and is not performing particularly the way he should be in front of his Canadian Further Education Counselor, his and my economics teacher Ms Tonin. I do not want to see the future of a young man ruined in his own hands although he is 18 years old and bear separate legal status. He should be well aware of the fact that he, whether he likes it or not, bears legal responsibility of whatever he does.
I urge him to stop jeopardizing his academic performance and his literary potential. He should start showing minimum respect to himself even if he has none to others.
For your information, he claims to be a Christian.
His Faith is questionable and not impressively convincing.
