" My family give me life."

                                                                                       --- Ricky Goo

Here is the Story of #IntiFMIdol - Ricky Goo Ricky Goo is a 25 years old owner of Sense Hair Salon in Puchong and everyone describes him as a passionate young adult …

“... He always stay positive and optimistic, dedicated and hardworking…” said Jack, who is one of his long time client. ...

He is humorous, sociable with a lot of friends, straight forward and honest… said by a lady resident that lives in Sutramas Apartment, who never go to a dinner function without visiting Ricky Goo.

He is just like us, like everyone else, someone that hopes to provide his family with warmth and happiness through his dedication in his work.

Someone that works so hard hoping that one day in the future, life will be more comfortable.

Unfortunately,

He is destined to walk a different and more challenging path from everyone else, his is born met with an illness that most will give up and never be successful in hairstyling business, but he chose to achieve much greater things despite going through an illness than will ruin most people’s life.

 

One illness, One Night … and that’s the beginning of his NIGHTMARE

Ricky Goo when he was a boy

The illness that happened when he was only 3 years old, turned his life upside down.

Banting, where Ricky was born, the main town in the district of Kuala Langat, Selangor, is located approximately 60km away from the capital city, Kuala Lumpur. His mother is always away to work in Singapore when he was still an infant and his father is also occupied with his work. His grandmother is the one who took care of him and his 4 years old brother.

There was once, for a few nights, he had high fever. As his family was not very well off, he was only fed leftover medicine. Hence, he did not recover. On that fateful night, his grandmother brought him to a nearby hospital. Regrettably, his family was told by doctors that his high fever destroyed his ability to hear, along with the ability to converse for the rest of his life, that means he will never be able to hear and talk for the rest of his life ….. his only mean of communication is the sign language.

He screamed to himself and everyone else The words that couldn’t be heard were screaming inside him, blaming what happened to him is his family’s fault.

He screamed to himself and everyone else blaming them for what happened to him … “It’s all YOUR FAULT !!!! Mother, Father, Grandmother, you caused me to be deaf and mute !!!!” Since that day, as he was different from other children, he was robbed of a happy normal childhood.

 

As he was deaf, he begin to have negative thoughts that lead to his lack of self-confidence, and is filled with insecurities. Anger, solitude and tears were all he could do to express his emotions and thoughts.

There was once when he was young, he raised his fist against his family members. People would have thought his unfilial actions to be not forgivable. However, his family continue to still loved him unconditionally, hoping that it would help reduce the guilt inside them. All that the child wanted, was just to be happier.

However, all the tolerance and love given from his family, did not help him, but made things worse. During his rebellious age of 14 and 15, when he was acquainted with bad company of friends, his family feared that he would get into trouble especially drug dealing. Fortunately, that did not happen.

" Every midnight, I was afraid to receive calls as I have no idea what happen to him again. Back to those days, he has bad friends who always take advantages from him. I used to received calls from police and hospital, even sometimes his friends, asked me to pick him up."

Ricky's brother always give some valuable advice to Ricky, especially on the topic of choosing friends. Ricky used to have a lot of friends that bring about bad influence but after his brother's advise, he became more critical and thought through the process of selecting a friend.

Ricky Goo The Best HairStylist in Malaysia

Love Yourself, Love Others … Slowly as time passes, he began to realize, that in order for him to truely  find happiness, there is only one way, which is to let go of the past.

At the age of 15, he dropped out from school. With his passion and love in cooking, he became a chef. However, his career as a chef ended after a fight with his colleague 3 years later. When he was 18 and unskilled in any aspect, he decided to study hairdressing, to follow on her mother footsteps. He threw away his past, because he now knows that to be happy, he have to let go of all his pain that he allowed himself to be so consumed with from his past.

" I do think that they are slightly at fault. But over the years, they have given me more than enough love and support. I learned to accept my disability and became an independent man. " according to his translator when we interviewed him at his Saloon.

At that moment of enlightenment and realization, Ricky changed mentally. He transformed himself into a different person, from one with a world of darkness and hatred to one filled with love and hope. Since then, everything went uphill.

All that he need, was love.

Ricky Goo ...

He became a very loyal, faithful and passionate person. He gave his all in every relationship, all that he could to give love. However, some things are unfair in this world, you are just not rewarded for what you gave.

Every relationship that he went through disappointed him and broke his heart but at the same time, these experiences are what brought him up, taught him, and made him understand that love is like wine tasting, each has their own particular taste. Not everyone settles for one.

After numerous failures, there was one time he almost gave up and thought of taking his own life. Eventually he realized that, these are all just stepping stones in his life, for him to be a better person in life. He is still filled with hope as of now, patiently waiting for the right person. That little child that resides in this fully grown man, all that he wanted and hungered, was love.

Love, a double edge sword

Ricky, now filled with passion and highly dedicated to his work is just like you and me, if not, better.

Other people’s condescension did not discourage him, however became his motivation in life. He knows that he is not alone, stating that if someone else like me can do it, so can I.

His family’s encouragement and tolerance all those years gave him strength in his life, letting him know that he was not abandoned but deeply loved by his family. " He is my good brother and my eternal responsibility." said by his brother, Nicolas during the interview.

Ricky is a very sociable person. He not only confines himself to meeting people who shares a common bond with him, but also a lot of other friends who support him in times of need.

" I feel that I am the luckiest person in the world, I have a lovely and generous family, a group of supportive friends. To those who loves me, helped me, betrayed me, insulted me, I really appreciated that, because that made me to become a better me."

Maybe because the fact that he lacks what most people have, made him cherish what he have even more than most people do. And his bright and positive attitude works like a charm, affecting people around him.

Some days, he still cries and feels sad but with the acceptance, care and support from his dearest, he is able to garner all his courage to live on more happily. .

One step, was all it takes.

Nowadays in this age, people in society always take things for granted, sometimes not knowing that they might have lost their most precious kinships and friendships or even their life.

If the people in our society would be more positive, tragedies would occur less.

In life, light will always shine through even the darkest corners. You just have to embrace it, feel it, and you will see the exit where the light has shown u.

Love, is a signal that will lead you home, is a directory to guide you to the right path, is torch light that brings you to brighter future. Without love in our life, it will never be complete.

Remember, positivity alters your life. And remember, your fate lies in your own hands, no one can force you in doing anything.

Live life, spread your wings and fly, as the endless sky awaits you

剪刀下隐藏的秘密images

 

" My family give me life. 家人给我的新生命"

 

269692_245269798823412_7522792_n                                                --- Ricky Goo

 

 

姓名:Ricky Goo

年龄:25岁

职业:理发师

出生地:万津

 

 

 

Ricky Goo, 25岁,Sense Hair Salon老板,一个年轻有为的热血青年。这是一般人对他的描述。

。。。他积极向上、奋力工作、刻苦耐劳。。。

。。。他幽默风趣、交游广阔、老实憨厚。。。

他和大部分人一样,希望现在努力的打拚,能让家人过上舒适、安逸的生活。希望现在的辛苦,能够让未来的人生少点苦头。

但是,

冥冥之中, 上天注定就是要給他不一般的考驗, 和我们不一样的路。。。

 

那个夜晚 噩梦才开始

22051_108066785877048_3403538_n三岁那年的夜晚,改变了他的一生。

他的出生地,万津位于雪兰莪瓜拉冷岳县的一个市镇,距离首都吉隆坡西南部大约60公里,一个偏离城市的小镇。那时,妈妈在新加坡工作,爸爸也在外头工作,家里就只剩下年迈的婆婆和大他4岁的哥哥。

那几晚,他连续发高烧。那时,家里生活拮据,爸爸就拿吃剩的退烧药给他吃,但是病情并没有好转。

出事的那晚,婆婆带着他到附近的医院。医生无奈地告诉家人他的脑部烧坏了听觉神经,他将永远听不见声音;这也会让他无法说话,往后也只能靠手语和别人沟通。

可是他心裏頭卻大喊, “都是爸爸、妈妈 哥哥和婆婆的錯 !!!”

 

由于比别的小孩不一样,他被剥夺了小孩应有的快乐童年。自从耳朵里听不到声音,他缺乏安全感、缺乏自信。发脾气、孤立自己、大哭是他唯一能够向世界表达他想法的方式。

他曾经在少年时,出手打他的爸爸、哥哥和婆婆。在大家眼中,或许是大逆不道的行为,但是,看在家人的眼里,觉得心疼这个孩子,让他发发脾气能够减少他们对自己的愧疚感。其实,这孩子,只想让自己更好过。

对于家人的包容与容忍,没能感化这冰冷的他,反而还变本加厉。14、5岁的叛逆,和误交损友,让家人一度担心他会帮朋友运毒。庆幸的是,他没有误入岐途。

"每个夜晚,我都很担心接到电话,我曾经接过医院和警察局的电话。以前,他交的朋友都想要从他身上的到利益,所以常常会闯祸。”

 

放过别人等于放过自己

慢慢长大,他开始明白到,让自己最好过得方式,就是放开的过去。

15岁的他辍学。喜欢烹饪的他,应征主炒。也不知道是不是做厨师的脾气比较暴躁,在工作了3年后他和他的同事吵架后辞职。

18岁无一技之长的他毅然决定报读发型设计,接手妈妈的理发店。就这样,踏上了理发之路。他放下了过去的执著,因为他知道放开了那些痛苦,才能拥抱快乐。

“我以前觉得他们间接让我变成这样。不过这几年来,他们给我的爱和支持,让我忘记了我的残疾。我开始接受了这个事实也学习成为一个独立的人。”翻译员表示。

一念之差, 心態的轉移就讓他從黑暗,憎恨別人踏入了另一個美好世界. 他心裏頭, 充滿了愛。。。 隨之,一切因此而改善。

 

心里的孩子 只想要100%的爱

他很重视感情,对每段感情都是100%地投入、100% 爱对方,但是感情并不是投资,不会有相等的回报率。541867_417816168235440_319972186_n

每一段感情都让他很难过、失望,但是让这个小鸡蛋成长的正是这种失败经验,也让他渐渐明白爱情本来就像酒,有的喜欢红酒、有的比较喜欢白酒、还有啤酒、香槟。。。

虽然经过很多次的失败,有次几乎让他爬不起来,还浮出自杀的念头,但是,他坚信没有这些绊脚石,不会有现在的他。

他,依然抱着希望,等待着下一站幸福。其实,心里的孩子,只想拥有完整的爱情。

 

爱 曾经摧毁了他  再塑造了新的他

现在的他, 有上进心,努力工作,和你和我都一样, 甚至比我们更有远见。

异样的眼光并没有成为他的困扰,反而更有动力的生活。他知道世界上有许多和他一样的人, 他们都能成功, 那他一样也行。

家人的鼓励与包容让他更深信活着是有意义的。他并不是被孤立的,而是捧在掌上的孩子。

“他是我一世人的责任!”他的哥哥说。

10423397_338263962990876_878856954_n

他的社交圈并不只是一些和他有同样残缺的人, 他拥有很多正常的好朋友。他们常在他需要帮助时挺身而出。

“我觉得我是世界上最幸福的人,我有一个爱我的家人,一群支持我的朋友。如果你曾经或现在爱过我,帮过我,背叛我,伤害我,我真的真的都很谢谢你们,因为你们才有现在的我!”

 

或许他没有了一些大家所有的,但是也让他拥有更多而且比我们还知道如何珍惜。

他积极正面的态度影响了身边的人。

他,也会哭泣,会伤心,但是身边的人的支持,让他更有勇气活下去,而且要活得更精彩。

 

那一步,往往就是差那步

如今在这社会上,正常的人往往因为不知足,不珍惜而失去了最珍贵的亲情,友情甚至是生命。1504081_828484990501887_1856003598_n

如果社会多了想法正面的人,那就会减少很多的悲剧了。

生命的少许灰暗不代表光就不能渗透,只要你愿意打开心房,你还是会看到那片曙光。

正面的思想影响你的人生。

你的人生在你自己手中,没有人有剥夺的权利,你可以自己活出不一样的你。

美丽的天空,正在等着我们翱翔啊。。。
