Lailatool Badariah.......

Sek Yee & the 'Boss' dropped into 'Valencia' to visit Lailatool and "Ah Kow" (another mystery guy) who now have 6 grandchildren to look after! Mondays thru' fridays .......the grandma cooks and the grandpa bath the kids, play with them and then puts them to rest, runs errands,etc.......looks like "Ah Kow" has more duties to perform. Although technically they are "free" on weekends, they still go over to their children' place to visit the "cucus" (they all stay in the vicinity)

With Lailatool, an excellent cook by his side, no wonder our "Ah Kow" is grinning from ear to ear!

And this is how you make your fried meehoon and coffee!

We are all looking as young as we were in 1967!

Photos below show her 2 daughters trying to guess where their mum is standing in the A2 photo.......later one of the daugthers exclaimed......."wa, mummy has so much hair then and so thick".....compared to now I suppose.......

(Please keep this a secret boys & girls of '66/'67: Tomorrow 21/7 is the super grandparent's 37th wedding anniversary.....hip, hip hurray!!)

Anderson School....100 Yrs Celebration Dinner in 2009!

This was in February 2009: Datuk Seri Selvamany and his wife, Mr. & Mrs. Wong Poh Lam were all there! WAK was on our table but he was not around most of the time!

Khadijah's brother Amir Sulaiman(old Andersonian also)was there as well and the young boy is Amir's son who is in Form 3 this year;The young boy was so keen to attend the dinner when he discovered that we were attending and Datuk Seri was so fascinated to see such a young student there.....hence Datuk Seri insisted on taking a special photo with him......his name is Mikhail Sulaiman!

At Batu Ferringhi Beach, Penang....... April 1968

This was a trip we made to Penang between April 02 - 05, 1968! Must have been after our Exams! Choy Foong - need I say who was the naughty guy during our Sixth Form days? This is an 'undoctored' picture as evidence!

Chin Fook Leong........Anderson's 'Top Cop' in Singapore!

Here he is seen in his 'neatly pressed' uniform welcoming his Malaysian visitors to Singapore during his service with the Singapore Police; Does he look 'fierce' enough? According to Fook Leong, it is his public persona to look 'fierce' but is actually a nice (and naughty?)guy within! We believe you Sir! And did you notice in the picture, the Police all have the same pose... right hand in pocket (maybe they do have a gun in there?) and left hand in 'ever ready' position to strike! Hmm... must learn this new 'cat walk' style! Have a good week end everybody!

Bringing Back Some Colours.....Hamzah's Grandchildren!

The girl, Edria Dayinnah, age 4 yrs, is my first. Gentle and talkative like a girl usually is.

Zia Khalif, age 3 years, is my second. Naughty like a monster. 'Mana tumpahnya kuah jika tidak ke nasi'.

At a Social in 1966..

Hopefully, we will not have to queue for food this coming July 25, 2010 - this was the usual scene at our social (waiting for food) way back in 1966!

'Malau Fish'......?????

'Charlie' and his angels? But let me quote you the 'greetings' wriiten on the reverse side of this photo! First angel says 'with very best wishes & regards', second angel writes 'every success to the blind bat of Anderson' and wishes, Malau Fish! Maybe our Hamzah can help here!

Prefects with Datuk Seri 1967

Look at their immaculate suits! Our guys with Datuk Seri Selvamany and our Lower Six comrades!

Annual Prefects' Dinner in 1967

Hey boys & girls of '66/'67! We will not be doing this 'sit-down' dinner on July 25, 2010; But this is a great picture of the 'top cops' of Anderson School then!

July 25, 2010...... Date with 'DSS' in Ipoh!

Hi Andersonians of '66/'67! Some of us have not met our teacher extraordinaire since then, so please make extra efforts to be with us in Ipoh on July 25, 2010 for the day trip if you are from Kuala Lumpur! You can come by sea, air or land - only be with us to meet our 'Tokoh Guru Malaysia' or 'Tokoh Guru Economics' to many of us! This is the happening of the year!

Chin Fook Leong.....and the Art of Non-Answer!

Photo shows CFL with Minister Jayakumar who is now a Senior Minister.
I was Head PR cum Press Secretary to the Minister for Home Affairs.
I was on secondment to the Ministry of Home Affairs (1986-89). Here I learnt how to reply to the public/press complaints and queries without really answering their queries……and from the experience I gained from this job, I later took over the SIN Police Public Affairs Dept as its Director.

Chin Fook Leong......A long time ago

This is the “ Gang of 4” in 1967. Look at the “obiang” specs worn by them then!! But where is Thoo Poh Yik now? He seems to have disappeared. He was in SIN (1971 or so) but went back after he resigned from SIA. Can anyone locate him? (And can you all imagine that Chin Fook Leong was to later become a top cop in Singapore?)

Pictured below is the gang of 4 in 'work uniform' but minus Thoo Poh Yik! In his place is Ahmad Sharkawi; (Even then Poh Yik could disappear at will, what more now??)

(left to right)Head Boy Oon Eng Hock, Ng Pak Thong, Yours truly, Evelyn, Ah Nya, Principal’s daughter (forgot her name) meeting Minister of Education (Khir Johari) and Mr. Tagar Singh, Principal.

At The Banquet, Bangsar.......on July 05,2010

Poh Lam showing off his 'forever young' physique to the ladies! "Madu di tangan kiri and kanan juga!"

The Publisher, The Boss and the Swimmer!

"Mr. Rose Chan and sidekicks!"

The "evergreen" Wu Sor Hwa: That's why the Boss is smiling!

Patricia could not even recognise herself in this photo! Imagine that Poh Lam!

Ladies in serious thought: "Have we changed so much?"

Wong Poh Lam and "Mr Rose Chan" came to KL to attend a tax conference ( right in the middle of the World Cup semi-finals?? - must be a very taxing for both of them!.) A few of us then got together for dinner in Bangsar where Pit Loo and Rashidan stays.....Wu Sor Wah came along together with the regulars, Hau Kiang and Merlyn as well as Poh Lam's three daughters,Geraldine,Sharon and Karen. However 'Mr. Rose Chan' shall remain anonymous to all Andersonians '66/'67!
