Simon & Su Ee tying the knot – Part 1- Meeting old acquaintances

 Caution! Mega lengthy post ahead!

 

My last visit back to my beloved university was on March 2007, for a siao project. This time, I took a week’s leave to go back to Partit Raja & Batu Pahat to attend Su Ee & Simon’s wedding, and to execute my secret mission.

 

I met a few professors, lecturers, technician, staffs from Student Affairs Office + Sports & Co-curriculum Centre and juniors. This trip has certainly boosted a wee bit of my self-esteem which has been seriously eroded at work place, I felt like I’m SOMEBODY because not only people still recognize me, they can still address me with my name when I have already forgotten theirs (or maybe it’s me who suffer amnesia? )

 

Old photo: Group picture taken with Prof. Aziz (sitting, 2nd from left) in Indonesia. He is now the Dean for my faculty. His face constantly reminds me of Wei Chern!

 

Old photo: Our dean last time (the one with songkok) has been promoted, he’s now the Deputy Vice Chancellor

 

Old photo: Met helpful Mr. Koh (middle) as well

 

I paid a visit to my good old coach’s house. As usual, I was greeted with warm welcome by him. I think Mrs. Coach must feel good to have a husband who is still well-built even in his 60-ies! Coach has a son who is equally attractive as he is. Potty and I used to admire the son so much!

Hippo & I also went look for friends who are still stuck at Parit Raja doing their masters e.g. Dave. Ah Liao & Gordon to have lunch together. We are surprised to observe that they have not assimilated into Batu Pahat’s style of talking and are still talking with heavy Borneo accent after 7 years living in BP.

 

Seekhee is kind enough to provide refuge for me & hippo during our stay at BP. Received funny sms from YK on the night of 30/4:-

 

YK: Eh, in BP already? Where do you all stay?

Me: Sleeping by the road side

YK: My house is empty tonight. Don’t say I never offer hor.

Me: Ceh! After tonight still have to sleep by the road side…

YK: Walao, got place la. Wanna come or not?

Me: It’s ok for us to sleep by the road side, as long as you treat me, hippo & Seekhee breakfast tomorrow!

YK: Bye!

 

Seekhee put the bolster in between to prevent me from molesting her while she’s deep in slumber!

 

I reckon Seekhee can really be a terrific house wife because she possesses the following virtues:-

1) She sleeps & eats very little!

2) She’s very thrifty. She kinda stopped McEgg from buying her a Gucci bag.

3) She does house chores diligently.

4) She’s a good cook! 

 

Seekhee’s cooking. To keep my promise of not posting photo showing Seekhee in her casual wear at home & to repay her kindness for shou liu-ing me, I draw her a Gucci top!

 

4-dish + 1 soup, prepared by Seekhee in just the blink of an eye. Not forgetting, the tabao-ed 烧肉 from YK.

 

"Reunion" lunch at Seekhee’s house

 

Miss this 福州 egg soup very much!

 

One of the constinuous shots yang tidak bermaya…

 

The age has really taken its toll on all of us, (I must say, except Ah Leang!) the enthusiasm for continuous shots is just not there anymore. These were what we could do during our heyday:-

 

     

   

As asserted by Suecing, what you witness above is just tip of the iceberg, it’s only 10% of our skills!

Random: According to Ah Lun, this is the trick to have twins!

 

Random: STARz

 

Random: His saham terus jatuh 50% by taking this photo!

 

Random: I went for pedicure while waiting for Hippo for his hair cut

 

I have a feeling that the later someone gets married, the less fun and more formal the wedding would become! Because as the days go by, everyone will be tied down more by heavier workload, naughtier children & busier schedule! Tell me I’m wrong…

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
"机遇总是偏爱有准备的人"
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
