I hardly watch TV. I can't remember when was the last time I really watch it. I did watch TV for 5 minutes last week when my colleague was aired for a slot in a program. That was it.
When I was out-stationed to Kuantan, I stayed in a hotel. Usually the first thing I do when entering a room are give salam and turn-on the TV. Just to leave the creepy silence. But that one time, the hotel room was equipped with a new flat-screen TV installed to the wall. I was a bit jakun and said "Wow, this is fancy". So I tried to turn it on, I searched for the button, but I couldn't find any. I was literally standing up on the bed and searched for any button, but failed. I tried to find the remote control but I failed too.
I have no idea on how to turn on a TV ! So, to let it pass, I turned on my laptop and watched 'How I Met Your Mother', *so I can laugh and ignore any creepy feelings. How come someone from Gen-Y didn't know how to turn on a flat-screen TV?
To make it sound worse, we got 2 flat-screen TVs with Astro in my apartment, that I hardly ever watch. I remember when was the last time I actually turn it on, the day I was staying there alone about 5 months back, when my brother came visiting. Why I can remember it? Because my brother actually asked me what I was doing?
When all I did was turn on the TV.
So that concludes my relationship with the television.
I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book - Groucho Marx
