The Fever of Traumatic Fear
I remember not too long ago when I was about 8 or 9 years old, I was watching television with my aunt and there was a musical show airing on RTM. Must be one of those “Hiburan Minggu Ini” shows and one of the artists performing was the renowned M. Daud Kilau.
M. Daud Kilau is a veteran artist in this country and there is simply no one who can match up to his inimitability. He always wears his black curls thick and fake looking, plastered to his head. His ward robe is so psychedelic, one need to wear a sun glass when opening his closet else risking the blinding of the eyes due to dazzling effects from all his sequined and beaded outfits, in the brightest hue of all colors of the rainbow. I think that is why M Daud Kilau himself is cross eyed. Until today when he already is a senior citizen, this talented artist with many-many fabulous hit songs will never have the adjective masculine describing him. The most notable uniqueness about him is the way he dance – belly dance!
I don’t think that the “Hiburan Minggu Ini” show was the first time I watched him perform but for some reasons I totally freaked out! I kept telling my aunt that I was scared but she thought I was just kidding. It was the rolling of the eyes, the sparkling gold tooth, the twirling of the hips and twitching of the hands above his head. He scared me! He scared me good!
The next day I got a fever. I didn’t go to school for two days. I will never forget it. It was the fever of traumatic fear!
Anyway the video below is not of M Daud Kilau but about a kid that is so funny when he got scared of a puppets show. I had tears of laughter rolling down my cheeks when I was watching it. This is a video worth waiting the buffering time and is sure to get you laughing hysterically too! Enjoy it!
So what’s the craziest thing that has happened to you when you were scared?
