Volleyball Team of 1975

This was the team representing the school in 1975, I remember we managed to play a few matches in the inter school competition until the last match with one of the schools in Baling.
The main player of this team was none other than Ong Tiek Hwa, he was the main spiker and did most of the attacking role. He is now teaching in Badlishah School. Due to my height constraint, I was always in the setting position and making sure that I could feed the spikers accurately. Whenever, the team managed a good attack, we would yell "char siew". Diving for save, digging, overhand or underhand serving, blocking and dipping were parts of the fun in this game.

Back Row R-L : Ronald Koh Wah Heng & Yeoh Cheang Tiek ... the rest I cannot remember. 
Front row : Sim Kong Aik, Sin Tai Lim, Teacher, Ong Tiek Hwa, Chew Eu Jin & Tan Teow Chow.

Abdul Rahman Bin Abdul Wahid - Where are you?

Where are you, Abdul Rahman bin Abdul Wahid? The last time I met him was probably in the early 1980’s when he was staying in Section 17 Petaling Jaya. Abdul Rahman was one of my earlier childhood friends living in Padang Serai, Kedah and we went to the same primary school together in Kulim.

I used to visit him at his home in a Police barrack back in Padang Serai and later his family moved to a new house at Jalan Bagan, Padang Serai which was nearer to my house. I can still remember his mother vividly and she was always nice to us. I would like to see him again. Should anyone knows his where about please do contact me?

Mini Gathering to Meet an Old Pal - Wong Kok Choo

The chance to meet up Wong Kok Choo (seated on the right) at last has been materialized. I received a call on a Sunday morning while I was at a market doing my usual chore. I managed to gather a few more schoolmates for this special meeting. Thanks to Tan Kean Hooi, Ho Tick Choong and Yeoh Cheang Tiek for attending this mini gathering.

 We were young and we were at Maxwell Hill, Taiping in 1974.

And this photo was taken at Penang Esplanade during a school excursion.

We talked and talked and were very happy to meet up again after 36 years since we left school.

Our family members were there too to share and compare notes of our lives. We shall meet again.

A. Bathmanathan Another Long Lost Friend Found

My mission to locate my old classmates has been very encouraging. Bathamnathan sitting next to our form teacher Miss. Low Guat Sim.

Bathamnathan is always a quiet person and I glad to meet him in Penang on 4 March 2011 after 36 years.

We were in the same class in 1970 in a Primary School called Sekolah Tunku Abdul Malik, Kulim, Kedah.

Mah Tiek Chuan - Another Classmate Not Seen for 36 Years

This photo was taken in 1971 when we were in Form One (1 Merah). We studied until 1975 and we left for own destiny. Tiek Chuan is standing at the back row third from the left.

2 March 2011 we met up at Auto City, Juru, Penang and we can not afford to wait for another 36 years to meet again.
