The Nite Where 6 hours Was Not Enough...



44 alumni plus some of their spouses and love ones had made it to this special event dedicated to the friendship we forged during our formative teenage years some 40+/30+ years ago.
We do not need to say more to describe the atmosphere and the feelings of those present (see video). After all we are a bunch of caring and loving ex-schoolmates who treasure friendships and would like to bring back those memories for many years to come.

On behalf the organizing committee, I would like to thank for your support and participation. Please help spread the word especially to those are not part of this forum. Until then, we shall meet in 3 years time..... Of course besides your other individual get together, kopi time, children’s weddings, etc.

Cheers ,

10 People, 5 Couples making 1 Great Valentine dinner together


Billy, SinSiew, Cheong Seng, Malai Wang and I have invited our wives to celebrate a Valentine wine and dine on 14 Feb 2009. A rare occasion for most of us who are not that "romantic" and almost forgotten what Valentine meant for us. It turned out to be a pleasant evening with fine France wines, delicious international cuisine, lots of laughter, and feeling goooood.

Friends In Time

Times of your life …

January 26, 2009 … 1st day of Chinese New Year … time for reunion with family and loved ones … time for the joyful gathering of friends … time for sharing and catching up with each other … time for leaving beautiful memories in each others’ lives … times of your life and mine.

For many of us, the last time we saw each other was after our MCE in 1979. Yes, whilst we were still “teenagers”. On January 26, 30 plus of us gathered at Sunset Lounge, Palm Resort for a reunion dinner 30 years later. As with the meeting of good old friends, we shook each others’ hands heartily and gave each other huge bear hugs, and guess what, the ladies even received a stalk of rose, courtesy of the guys! With that, we started an evening of a mix of “those good ol’ days” and “the past 30 years” and counting blessings along the way. One of the highlights of the evening was of course the viewing of old photos which brought many fond memories (and drew laughter) of our younger days such as our school, our classmates and our various outings, all laboriously put together in 3 video clips. There was also a viewing a video clip taken in the evening itself.

Two missions were successfully completed that evening. One was the mini donation drive to help with the start-up of the 24 Festive Drum Troupe at SIS Kulai and we managed to raise RM2,500. Second was the membership drive for our SIS Alumni which also saw new registrations.

As with all reunions, we wined and dined and laughed and shared through the night, with some in our midst entertaining us with jokes, stories and impromptu cat-walk performances (a proof that many of us are still very much young-at-heart and fun-loving) and this continued long after the tables were cleared.

Yes, many of us were glad we were able to make it for the gathering and we went away with additional (laugh) lines on our faces, with renewed friendships and thankful hearts, with memories of a lovely evening and a DVD each. Well, I did.

If you were not able to join us that night for whatever reason and thus was not “featured” in any of our video clips taken that night, do make special effort to join us … in 3 years’ time. See you then! Meanwhile, God bless, take care and stay joyful and healthy!

Walk Down The Memory Lane

The more we get together
当我们同在一起
如果云是天空的呼吸;风是我慌张的叹息。
回忆是爱的延续;只因为你和我已经不再一起。
当我们同在一起,在一起,在一起。
空气里有午后的暖意,我听着沙沙的收音机;
驺然间下起了雨,雨让我好想好想你;想要拥抱你。
当我们同在一起,在一起。。。。。。在一起齐快乐无比!

(R){你是我曾经的甜蜜;我是你爱情的过去;
那一段美好的记忆,我们都不能都忘记;
因为我很爱很爱你,所以能微笑着离去,
虽然我不会再见到你,幸福是我们曾经在一起。}
X X X X X X X X X
空气里空气里有午后的暖意,我听着沙沙的收音机
唱什么听不清晰,因为我傻傻的笑着想起了你。
当我们同在一起,在一起。。。。。。。齐快乐无比。。。。。。
(the more we get together, together, together........)

Greeting from Han Mui Wah


Hi everybody,
Gong Xi Fa Cai and a happy new year. Greetings from the USA. Saw the reunion dinner online and it does sure bring back old memories. Boy, it doesn't seem like that long ago though. I recognised most of them, but there were a few who I have no earthly idea who they were. Guess I have matured quite a bit.
My children and I will be in Malaysia sometime in August and maybe we can play some catchup with old times. My oldest son , Nick,(19) is a sophmore at James Madison University. Phil (17) is a senior this year and going to college in the fall and lastly Katie (8) the cherub, is in 3rd grade. Jc, my hubby ,is still working with DOD (DEPT. of DEF.) and enjoying it. I am a full time housewife and enjoying life in general.
Whoever reads this, pls drop a line or two and we can start to keep in touch again after 30 years. Also, we live in DC area, and if any of you comes to this neck of the woods, you all are more then welcome to come visit us. Just let us know in advance.
Thanks Tiew Siew for doing such a good job online. Kudos to you for your time and effort, and keep up the good work.
Muiwah Pollman

Season's Greetings





Seven of us from class79 got together last nite to have a home cooked meal prepared by “the wife” to celebrate the festive season. We are glad to have naturalized kiwi Cynthia Cheong LeeYin as our guest of honor this time. FYI, her next stop in KL is on Dec 29th, do contact Kathleen if you wish to meet her.

Though 30+ years have passed, every time we meet we’d still talk about the bees and the flowers during our SiS years where life was so much simpler; catching spiders and making them mate/horny! before each major fight; catching fish at the kulai river, etc. How to survive the mid 80’s recession where Jackson had to “jump plane” to New York City to be a fast food delivery boy; Sin Siew and Ah Choy going to the kiwi land, etc…

Til then looking forward to see and hear from some of you guys again…

Would like to take the opportunity to wish you guys a merry x’mas and happy 2009. Regardless of whatever faith you are, be it a commercial X’mas Christian like me.

Cheers,

An evening with the July B'day "Boys" - Part 1

8 of us showed up @ Crystal Jade Bishan Junction 8 to celebrate the July "boys" Soon Hiang, Mok and Choon Seong's birthday. All three did not go thru the "Remove" class like me thus they are 46th years old this year. Though the "boys" met occasionally, am sure King Ling or Enid has not seen some of them like Mok for ages....
Good to hear that Mok is picking up oil painting lately and my immediate suspicion- he was probably motivated by the studio's nude model! Need to find out where he attends his painting class. Part time "landlord" Sin Siew was talking about retiring and more importantly all of us were in good health to have a meal together...

Just as we were engrossed in our deep chat, the waitress hinted us that they were closing soon... We had to leave the brief get-together and promise to catch up again more often in the future. May be in a few months time...

Out-of-town folks, do remember to give us a buzz when you are in Singapore so we will have an excuse to meet again…

cheers,

Catching up with Elaine Chai in Hong Kong


Taking time off from work to catch up with old friend. The last time we met was probably after we left high school in 79.
With me were Elaine Chai Chew Yen and her husband Kalen at Wan Chai area in Hong Kong. Am sure I have brought back a lot of old memories to her from Kulai.
For those who visit HK next time, I am sure she would be happy to see you guys. She can be reached at +852 9436-1111.

With me at the lunch are Wong Kim Siong (BB 80) and Mr. Tee (BB officer in late 70’s & 80’s) and Mrs. Tee. Both are former Math and Biology teacher at SSI and now residing in Singapore.

Update From Sou Si

All,
You know who to call next time when you are in Perth. The wife just told me that Tiger Airways is launching a budget service(S$21) to Perth!. Any one who is thinking of emigrate to Australia, I am sure our tax accountant can give you some $$ advice though not sure about her charges... Glad to hear from you Sou Si...

Hi TS,

I must really embarassed my brother who shared the same bus as I did.!!!! No doubt it was pretty " messy & muddy " affair but most probably most upsetting that my mum had to buy me another pair of shoes. ( as we were very poor). Just told my hubby & daughter abt your e-mail - they thought it was funny.

Left Singapore in 1997 after living there for 15 years. It wud be great too if I still in S'pore since there are so many Kulaian in S'pore.

I have a daughter and a wonderful hubby. We live near University of Western Australia, within walking distance to the Swan River and very short distance to the Cottleloe Beach and city. I work as a tax accountant. To balance my role as mother/driver/maid, I work 4 days a week. I really prefer this arrangement than to rely on maid as I did when I was in S'pore. After living 10 years in Perth, I learn to appreciate here. There must be a reason why Perth is one of the ten most livable place after Vancover, Melbourne etc. Having said that, I must clarify home is where your loved ones are and also what you want from a place. Perth at the moment suits me very well. I go back to S'pore/Malaysia on an average once a year. It was always nice to catch up with Linda Phang when I returned to Kulai. So it was pretty sad when I found out she left this world. I hope the above give a brief update of my current life. Interesting I don't think many especially the boys who went to

I will try to ask my hubby to get a decent photo for our class 79 blog posting.

Nice of you to set up the blog. A wonderful opportunity to catch up with old friends.

I will be travelling from Frankfurt to Singapore on 25 July and stay in S'pore for 2 nites. Hopefully we can catch up then.

Warmest regards to you & your family

Sou Si,
Glad you have check in as I wasn't sure who is reading and who is not. There is something I always wanted to confirm with you but never have a chance as we never cross our path since we left Kulai in 1979. This is regarding an incident about a Kulai girl who lost her shoe on the muddy road side while stepping out the school bus to let other folks get out along the way home from English College. Some of our senior boys used to joke about it when I was in KL before leaving the States many years ago

Do send me some updates about you and family and picture for our class79 blog posting.

Don't ask me how I get hold of her since I last recall seeing her is about 20+ years ago shortly we left Kulai. Now you know who you can call to "yam cha" when next time you are in Hong Kong. I am sure she can show you the finest dim-sum place in HK.

Auckland in action!

Auckland 2006


Visiting Auckland with the family since yesterday and Cynthia and family came down to our hotel and showed us around the city's beautiful and magnificent sites. We spend some time catching up and guess what? She brought us to the home of one of our school mate at suburb of Auckland. She is from 5B, and the last time we met was 26 years ago. Thanks god that our face DNA blueprint still intact and recognizable even though the size/shape might not the same as 26 years ago. Her eldest daughter already graduated from University.
She is Tan(ex Chai) Buoy Lan sitting on your left with Cynthia and me at backyard of Buoy Lan's home.

Live Til 100 Years Old

While at Kulai to celebrate Mother’s day two Friday ago (Vesak day weekend), I found out by accident from Jimmy that Katherine (Sew Lan) and Pauline(Siew Kiap) father just passed away. Together with Malai Wong and Jimmy, I managed to pay an impromptu visit to Kath and Paul at their father’s funeral. Glad that I am still able to recognize their residence somewhere near the Kulai’s Chinese Primary school.

Kath’s father passed away peacefully at the age of 100 years old. My immediate thought was how old is he when he was having the twins, 55? So, for those who thinking of having more kids, you probably have 10 more years to be on-par.

I did met Kath’s sister “Miss” Foo and her husband Mr. Clerence, our lower secondary math and commerce teacher respectively. What a silly question when I asked where are they teaching now? Where both are on pension from teaching and are in their sixties??? Maybe the question should have posted to their daughter (adult looking) instead who is sitting across the table…Times flied….

Attached is the picture taken on Malai Wong and Jimmy, out of respect I did not include the Foo's whom are too exhausted for the photo shoot.

Mr. Tee - The Tree Man

Tee Swee Ping § Assistant Director (Arboriculture Streetscape West) §National Parks Board, not sure what it meant but for sure got nothing to do with mathematics. I now know why I did not do well for my Form5 maths.

I have an impromptu coffee chat with him last Friday. The last time I met him was about 16 years ago when I was on holiday back from the US. His office at Gateway West happens to be located next to my client’s office that I frequent weekly. Mok’s office also around the proximity and I believe Billy’s too. His department will soon be relocating back to their HQ at the Botanic Garden. Do pay him a visit next time when you are at the Botanical Garden.

All these while he has being working for the "garmen" of Singapore, iron rice bowl, unlike my which was made of porcelain and vapourware broken many years ago. His wife is teaching at a high school somewhere in Singapore, so is our physic teacher, Mr. Chai, according to him! Don’t be surprise one of these days if you bump into your former teacher at your kids’ parent session.

KAGA2006 - 25/01/2006


The Kulai Ah Beng golfers met again on Wednesday, 25th January 2006 at the Jurong Country Club. Green speed is 8.526....very the fast. Fairway is superb and weather is sunny. 18 golfers, about half are from Kulai teed off at 1PM.

We adjourned to JCC Ban Heng Restaurant for a get together dinner where awards were presented by organizers Billy and Jackson.

This year our “marathon” man Jackson Tan (Chin Pin) went home with the KAGA2006 trophy. Wonder when he will stop winning. Biggest buaya went to KC Lim. I got a bottle of Australian vintage wine (hand carried back from the downunder according to the sponsor) that labeled most hardworking??? Non golfer… it’s a reward for “value for money played”, hit the most strokes!

All of us left home by 9PM in time for the family, just like any other day of hard work at the office. Choon Siong has already started suggesting we make it a bi-annual event. He can’t wait to show off his new handicap ….. Til then perhaps KAGA2006.5

Surprise Visit by Kiwis


Cynthia Cheong Lee Yin has surprisingly shown up at my doorstep on 7th January 2006 afternoon, after missing in contact for several years. For those who do not recall who is this tycoon “tai tai” looking friend, her family used (or still) to own some Chinese medicine shops at Kulai main road.

Cynthia and husband Sam (i call him tukang masak) who was a trained culinary grad from New Hampshire college, USA are now proud owner of a cafe/deli shop in suburban of Auckland New Zealand. In the background are my wife Michelle, children Dylan and Samantha. Cynthia's children Julia and Jasmine who were at their teenage parent withdrawal syndrome did not tag along to see their mummy's boring old friends, instead, they have chosen to roam the shopping strips at Orchard road.

Belated Goodbye to Linda Phang - August 2005

TS
Yes our dear friend who passed away was Linda Phang. She passed away last August 04. I visited her in March 04 when she had just completed chemo and looked good and motivated ( appeared to me at least). August 04 my family in Kulai read the obituary and called me. I could not make it to attend the funeral and I was very affected by her departure afterthat. She had breast CA. Apparetly a relapse which had affected her brain months later.

I thought I would send a message to those whom I still have the email addresses sometimes later but somehow this has been delayed. For those who read this please check yourself ( or your wives )yearly because the strike rate for breast CA is very high. Last year alone I have 3 friends in Singapore who diagnosed with breast CA. 2 relapses,1 passed away in December. Another tragic one was an ex-colleage who suffered from depression after the wife got breast CA. He commited suicide while the wife was still undergoing treatment. Be it good news and bad news let's share it as a reminder to us and treasure our love ones around us always. We are blessed to be around sitting healthily to wish each other good health and may this be a tradition for many more years to come.

My best wishes to all - good health and go xi fa cai!

KAGA2004 - 17/01/2004


KAGA otherwise known as the Kulai Ah beng Golf Association tour started as an annual winding down golfing get together. It usually held the week before fellows class79 alumni heading back to their respective kampung for the Chinese New Year holiday. Even though the annual social golf event started many years back, the first recorded event was held on Saturday, 17th January 2004 at the Tanjung Puteri Golf Club in Johor Baru. The game was extended to class79 golfing buddies and friends from their respective business and social circle. Prizes were sought and contributed by fellow participants and scores were tabulated for varies expert plays e.g. most hardworking (most strokes); top “buaya”, etc. At the time of journaling this entry, I have no recollection of who had won what awards. Perhaps some one with photographic memory would like to share some light here. The best player goes home with a mini trophy and get to keep it until the next KAGA tour…

20th Year Reunion Dinner - 14/02/1999


20th Reunion Dinner - 5.30pm to 10.00pm, 14th February, 1999, U'Full Restaurant, Kulai Besar [26] of us, excluding some spouses and children, from the class of 1979 (“C-79”) met up for dinner on February 14, 1999 – to celebrate our 20th year anniversary. The plan for the gathering was formed when some C-79 folks got invited to Kai Siang’s wedding in mid-January 1999, where it dawned on them that we had not come together in the last 15 or so years. So, in less than one month (talk about speed!), contacts were made through e-mails and telephone, C79 members
“rounded up”, dinner date confirmed, attendance taken, …. We were warmly welcomed at the Restaurant by the “Organising committee” – whilst a print of our last class photo was passed around for us to identify one another as well as to recall every one’s names. I supposed for many of us, there have not been many changes since we were 17 or 18-year olds, though, of course, many of the guys have “prospered”. In the course of exchanging news that evening, it was indeed heartening to note that members of C-79 had done reasonably well in our careers. We had accountants, businessmen, consultants, engineers, managers, teachers, etc, in our midst. It was a nostalgic evening – not because of the spread of the food at our privately reserved function room of Restoran U’Full, but rather the meeting of classmates whom some of us had not seen since we went on our separate ways long time ago in 1979! It was a night where old contacts were renewed …, where “forgotten” friendships were reaffirmed …, where we caught up with some 20 years’ of news from each other. I believe many, if not all, of us left the restaurant in high spirits that night (by the way, liquor was not served during our dinner, so none of us could have been drunk!)… and perhaps we could look forward in anticipation of more such gatherings to come
