Grandpa Hasan vs Current Trends: THE WOAH (why.)

(Puts on reading glasses)

So children, it would seem as though your generation of youngins have found yet ANOTHER unusually entertaining trend that has, once again, captivated young audiences with what can only be described as ‘minimalist movement’. To the readers that don’t quite know what is being referred to (which is highly doubted), it’s reference to the ‘Whoa‘ if that’s how it’s even called, anyways. Who knows anymore? (Rubs forehead)

According to the most conveniently trusted intelligent sources by way of social media (particularly Twitter) this phenomena has erupted onto the scene, making about as little sense as the movement itself in the form of a short video that’s caused some waves around the web.

This ‘dance move‘ reminds one of the evolution of man– just backwards in terms of dance moves. There is just too little to see. At best, it could hardly be referred to as a dance move at worst, it’s a dramatic change that may foreshadow future degradation of classics such as the hokey pokey which may be lost to obscurity in the future. All it takes to participate in this cultural dance is to just move your head and do some simple fancy move with your hands. And that’s it!

Yet, to many young fellow readers out there, the simplicity of the move is what captivates the audience, what with the complications of the world always looming ahead. First reactions to the move often left one utterly speechless, but for the fact that there was just too little to see! Reactions often consisted of “Ok, so what is this?” and “Is that it?”, before attempting to try it out ourselves.

This conclusion also yields the fact that, more often than not, modern trends these days often pick up trends the same way they were created: With odd simplicity that boggles the mind.

Undersized Pants

(Sips tea) So.

Our topic for this issue is regarding the fashion trend that we have in our school, specifically for the boys. Usually, I won’t judge about this matter, but it has gone too far, so we just had to cover it. There’s this trend where most of the male students specifically, wear these exceedingly tight pants and slightly cropped bottoms (in Malay we call it tingkai). Sometimes I chuckle to see what they’re wearing. Honestly, how can they bend their knees with those pants!

Look, I have no problem with this, but this matter has gone even to the point it’s hilarious to look at! I mean, imagine in the future where youths would wear even tighter pants, they’ll to walk with straighten legs all the time. (HAH!)

I have a question: whatever happened to those groovy over-sized bottom pants, flares? (yes the one’s Mr. Alan used to wear, when he was a teenager) Or those very comfortable regular sized trousers (dear they’re nice). Whatever happened to those? Let’s bring it back boys!

Until next time, Gramps out!
