I was cleaning up the photo gallery of my old Microsoft Lumia phone when I found loads of photos. So I exported them to my computer.
Among the many photos I found were the snapshots taken during my primary school reunion. I wrote about the reunion back in 2015 here and today 30-05-2022, 7 years to the day, I will publish photos of the gathering.
This was the banner right outside the hotel (Permai Park Inn).
This was a wefie I got on my phone even before I arrived at my parents' house. Some of my friends stayed at the hotel and had a head start to the reunion.
Umi K was a pack of nerves before she arrived at the venue and frequently lamented about her anxiety (and attempts to lose weight before the meet up hah...hah...) on our whatsapp group.
She gave me a big bear hug when we met. Umi K, you are the best! The strange thing is that we were never aware of each other back in 1978 hah..hah...since we were not in the same class.
Of course there were lots of goodies to eat. I should not have had lunch before the meet. But how to say no to my mum? Mothers always insist on feeding you.
There were the usual goreng2 stuff.
This is me, all bashful when Pokyo (standing behind me) asked me to take the mic and update the gathering about myself. I was too shy then.
There was a band playing and had I been my present 2022 self, I would have stood up (and addressed the crowd : Nok dengor lagu dok? [want to hear me sing?]), sashay to the band and ask if they could play Fly on the Wall by AC/DC. Hah!
We also shared a moment of silence in remembrance of classmates who departed too young. Umi K and I cried buckets.
