When I was in high school, we had this sadistic way of having fun. We call it “bonggol”. We would choose an unsuspecting fellow, surround him and then beat him up. Our usual victims? Any birthday boys and anyone who stands out, for example, there was once a friend carried a Sesame Street bag to school. We beat him up because of that. Well of course…we only beat up our friends..hehe

I heard loads of stories about fights in army camps and even in our National Service Camps. Usually the fights are one sided ie 100 fellows beating up one person. Hon Faai said it is a common occurrence when he was doing his National Service. However, the most unusual one was about this Indian guy who pissed some guys off. The guys then rounded him up and started whacking him. Well, the normal kicks and punches HOWEVER someone started tearing his clothes off. He was naked by the end of the bonggol session. Man..that’s so traumatizing, he would be shamed for the rest of his life.
