On Saturday 9th April 2011, I had the opportunity and privilege to be invited for the Anderson School's annual Hari Anugerah Kecemerlangan (in our days,it was called the Speech and Prize Giving Day in conjunction with Sports Day). This was due to the good rapport and influence of our Ipoh agent, Pretam Singh who helped finalised the Economics book prize with the Pengetua of ASI recently (see our previous story).
Going back to ASI to attend the function after 45 years was really nostalgic for me. I remember attending every single sports,speech and prize giving day from Std 1 to Form 6. Standing under the school porch that morning brought back memories of being together with my other Prefect friends in 1966/67 waiting for the Guest of Honour to arrive. This time around, I was there with Pretam to await the arrival of DSS and his wife who was accorded a special parking space near the porch (also arranged by Pretam!)
The first recipient for the inaugaral "Book Prize for Economics in honour of Dato Seri Selvamany and sponsored by students of 1966/67 Form Six Arts" is a pretty lass (from Kg Simee?)...Ms Curly Lee Kar Yee who scored the best results in Economics in Upper Six. Ms Curly has already started work with a pharmacy outlet nearby and she rushed over from her work place to meet up with DSS and us (see photos attached).
We "bidded" farewell to each other at about 12.10 pm.
