With pen in hand…

In the old days, the girls would have very nice cursive handwriting, especially those from the convent schools, probably because they were all well-guided by the nuns at the time. My mum had that kind of handwriting – the same as what one would see when getting a letter or a card from one of the Carmelite sisters in the monastery in Kuching. It looks something like this…

The boys would usually have very “manly” handwriting and though it did not necessarily mean that their handwriting was not nice, it was clearly quite different. But these days, it is very difficult to tell them apart for there are boys with really impeccable penmanship and on the other hand, there are girls who write like boys in the past.

Now, can you tell which of these samples is written by a boy? You have Sample A earlier and this is Sample B…

Handwriting 2
* Sample B *

I guess you would say for sure that the first one is definitely a  girl’s but are you really that sure? Now, if you think that the second sample is the one, have a look at Sample C…

Handwriting 3
* Sample C *

Have you changed your mind now? Or perhaps you think it is Sample D…

Handwriting 4
* Sample D *

…that is written by a boy, or Sample E…

Handwriting 5

Come! Come! Give it your best shot! Choose ONE, just one of the 5 samples – the one that you think is a boy’s handwriting. I will reveal the answer later…when everyone has posted a choice in his or her comment. LOL!!!
