Paper Airplane

I am not sure if I had written about this but since I'm too lazy to check and there's a chance it was written on a previous iteration of this blog...

People usually have fond memories in school. The crazy (though sounded like a good) ideas expressed in those times are stuffs you wouldn't consider doing at this age.

One of the more funny stuff I remember doing is making lots of paper airplanes and flying them from the 2nd floor of the primary school. We just throw the thing and see it glide down in various flight patterns depending on how you fold the wings. Some went straight in a ladder like descent, some went to the left and some to the right. We did several ones that goes down in a spiral.

The spiral ones to me at that time was the coolest thing ever. Imagine from the top corridor, the plane would spiral into the 1st floor corridor go out again and another long spiral till it hit the ground. It's the closest thing you can get to an RC made out of pure paper.

So we threw a few of the spirals and watch it disappear in into the the first floor corridor and do the wows and ahhs only 11 year olds can do. And since we're in terengganu, the standard usual 'WOH BIJOK AH!' is yelled out. Spiral In corridor. wait. Spiral Out corridor. crash. Spiral In  corridor. wait. Spiral Out corridor. crash.

And then Spiral in corridor. wait.

and wait. and wait. and wait....

we start frowning. shrugs. and as we prepare to get another plane, a teacher's head pops out with a HOI!

Gotta love school eh?
