Folk are not sure who this Bergen really is but then it doesn't really matter because all they want is to read what he writes every now and then. Of course he writes funny most of the time; that's because he learnt English from movies he watched as a kid growing up in Dungun. He did most of the watching in a cinema called Panggung Happy which has been long demolished to make way for a spanking new building selling all kinds of stuff but not as much stuff you can find at Pekan Rabu in Alor Setar, but close enough to be one. Of course the folk running the shops don't speak like the girls minding the shops at Pekan Rabu but you get the idea what's the idea behind the construction of such a builing, which is to complement the one and only bus terminal the town will ever have if ever the town like Dungun will be the state capital of Terengganu one fine day when folk are fed up with Kuala Terengganu being so far north.
This Bergen character came out of the blue when blogging was the favorite thing to do among folk his age who found the shortest way to consider themselves a writer or something like that. At first this Bergen guy wrote things that didn't matter to none; things like his life before he discovered that there was more to life than going about with folk who didn't know any better that fun and laughter came to an end too, just like life itself.
And so this Bergen guy discovered the joy of writing and heaven knows he tried very hard to learn every trick in the book to be a writer. It took him almost a decade to finally muster what he got in him and start writing. The first entry of the blog was nothing but a completely gibberish sentences of a guy who drank too much coffee.
And then he discovered Kak Teh. After that he discovered Awang Goneng. And things changed. He discovered sentences that can be written in many different ways. And then he tried to write like Kak Teh, and Awang Goneng but it didn't work out.
And so he met them one day for lunch. And he tried harder to write. And he's been trying since and still trying.
