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.

Hoon Teck Ming



老同学们, 死党们,大家好!收到邮件非常高兴并惊讶, 真的好想在做梦一样。 30年真的过的很快一瞬间就过去了,我们都快50了!2009年注定是个不平凡的一年-- 我们大伙毕业30年, 中国改革开放也正好30年!之前听我秘书说有位韩性男同学找我一时没转过神来, 我想应该是寿畴吧!真对不起因为最近特别忙, 忙着我一个楼盘开盘准备。确保万无一失!您们大概也知道因金融风暴的原因楼市很大的被影响所以要准备充分,质量关一定要把好, 细节决定成败!因为以上原因我今年就走不开了, 不能参加30年同学聚会非常遗憾。下会回来我们再约!借此预祝大家新春快乐, 万事如意,身体健康, 牛年行大运! 祝大家本命年(那些属牛的)牛气冲天!最后祝同学聚会圆满成功!谢谢!德明
