I hardly listen to the radio because I hate the advertisements. Who needs radio when you can easily burn some MP3 and pop it into the player when we are in the car, right?
But the other day, I heard Phat Fabes and Ben on Fly FM, FIX IT program and I think they deserve a mention. Initially I thought Phat Fabes is spelt Fat Fab. LOL. I have someone else in mind whom I want to call Fat. Fab too. LOL (Fat with a dot, not that he is really fat lah…)
Anyway, that morning, both hubby and I were driving to the hospital as we heard that his bro-in-law is in critical condition. So, we were rather sombre about it. No doubt we knew that he doesn’t have many days left, we never expect it to be that short.
Usually, hubby and I joke a lot about our own ‘endings’ and we can go to crazy length and morbid descriptions over these jokes. We always view our own deaths as something funny and we never really think about the sad part. So….on the Fly FM FIX IT, Phat Fabes and Ben were talking to a little girl on the phone.
She is only 9 years old. I forgot her name but her mom’s name is Sabrina. Apparently, the little girl has just recently lost her father. So, she was dealing with the loss in her little, innocent way. Phat Fabes and Ben asked her what would be her wish. She said she wants to go to USA and the way she described it, it was so sweet.
All the while, both hubby and I kept quiet and just listened to their conversations. It is rare that both of us become so engrossed over something on the airwaves. I felt my heart breaking, imagine the situation where the little girl lost her father.
Then, the two DJs asked her about her little sister who is only seven years old. The nine years old girl has some problems with her and it is understandable. Sabrina has to work. I immediately like the way Phat Fabes and Ben talked to the little girl, explaining to her the situation and etc. Finally, the little girl said she loves her mom very much and misses her father.
After that, Sabrina came on air as well. The girl told her mommy that she wants to go to the USA. Sabrina told her that it is very expensive and they cannot afford it as her father is not around anymore.
And what finally made me teary is : “But Abah promised me.” (abah = daddy)
It is an unfulfilled promise due to her father’s death. I pray that the little girl finally get her wish come true one day. Air Asia/MAS, where are you lah? I wish Sabrina strength and God bless her and her two little girls.
Good job, Fat Fabes and Ben!
When the chat with Sabrina and her daughter was over, both hubby and I sat silently in the car and I think both of us have the unspoken understanding that we are going to stick around for a long, long time. LOL, not that we have a say in it. Still…..

I loved listening to Fly FM in the morning because Phat Fabes and Ben really could wake me up! They were so fizzily crazy and creative and sometimes weird. Their Fix-Its were always entertaining too. I can’t wait to go home so that I can tune in again! 😀

Lilian you cute lah, “uncle sha yang muda” … haha
Hope the little girl you mentioned have her wish fulfilled
if she can wait until she form 5 she can apply with AFS to go for an exchange program to USA called YES program fully sponsored by US govt which I went on last year. but she must be good girl excel in both academic and community works.
hopefully her wishes comes true and i understood that desire to go, which fortunately i was lucky to go for.

5 X mom, i am quite new to your blog and i must admit i really enjoy most of your posting although some of it is of your personal encounter and life. Keep up the good work and to be very honest to you, i make it a point to read your blog every day and there is this one abreviation which i catch no ball, LOL, what does it stand for? Anyway i am just like you and many others who hardly listen to radio especially malaysian who always have so many advertisement and some of this advert is so irritating. I am actually from JB and like most Johoreans we down south hardly tune in to malaysian radio or TV as we are mostly lock on to Singapore media. I hope you can post and recommend popular Penang Food outlets for us so that we know where to eat if we happen to be in Penang. Thanks and keep up with your good work. Cheers!!! 😛
