Attention all Ex-STFians !!!

I was going through busymum's blog on her alma mater, SMS Kelantan ( Reading the postings, I couldn't help reminiscing about my own school days back in 1980-85.

Girls, please take a look at her blog when you're free. I think we should do something like that for our school. They posted old pictures, stories on PPM, makcik dining hall, school trips, formal dinner... macam2! It's like stepping back in time, and it's a wonderful feeling.

Right now, I think our Srikandi blog s*cks. It's very dry. Perhaps, we should start a new one on our own. I know we have an e-group, but I'm not in the mailing list. So, as an ex-Editor of our school magazine, Purnama, I'm calling all STFians batch 1980-85 to join in the soon-to-be- established editorial board!!

But to start the ball rolling, I need to know who still keep the old photos? Anyone?? (I may still have some at my mum's house, in Ipoh)

p/s: Busymum, I think you did a wonderful job with the blog. It's brilliant! Do you mind if we copied your idea??

Hello Mrs Nordin, I think thats a fabulous idea re a mag going down memory lane.
And maybe the who is who of the class of 80's onwards.
Talking about old days, I am proud to say I was one of the many students who took part at Malaya's (not Malaysia yet) opening of Merdeka Stadium, (1960) the 1st mass drill by students. Few thousands of us.
And the following day witnessed the lowering of the British flag, the raising of the new flag of Malaya, and hearing the first time 'Negara Ku' being played, and I was about 300 yards away witnessing Tunku Abdul Rahman, hand in the air crying out "MERDEKA", 7 times echoed by the 40,000 crowd, my voice lost in the loud cheering.
It was a very emotional sight.
But I digress. I guess if mentioned in a school mag, I don't think I will get a good mention, as I would sneak snakes or iguanas into class.
If you have never seen lady teachers in sarongs or cheong sums scamper up a desk, ha ha, they sure did it in a hurry.
My reward? 2500 lines of, "I must not bring snakes to class". My whole weekend koyak! And my mom thought the apple of her eye very studious doing homework on a weekend, ha ha.
You have a nice day, Mrs Nordin, best regards, Lee.

BJ, it is a nice thought.

Sometimes looking back at those ´toya´ days will make us realise how far we have made it through the stages in life, betul tak?

Btw, I listen to lagu ´Kisah Seorang Biduan´ by Dahlan Zainuddin everyday in the car!!??.. ha.ha.ha... Bought those oldies two years ago and still listen to them.

The "idea", as you call it, doesn't belong to me. It's universal :-)

I just thought that by putting them on a blog (rather than publishing in the e-group or forum - which we have been doing in the past), I can reach more alumni :-)

And the stories are also for me to remember me. We are getting older, and I notice that I am forgetting more and more things :-(
Friends names are disappearing from my memory even though their faces are very clear to me :-(

AS for the pix, most are getting more and more reddish, so it's better to scan them before they get worese. And Picasa helps a lot too. ;-)

You zaman dulu, ok what? Tall, short haired, played basketball... I always thought you were kinda cool (same league with Wherever You Are). Kalau nak kira bab toye ni, I lagi toye ok? So, chill...

Hi U.Lee,

Wow.. you must be proud to be there at Merdeka Stadium! My kids are now studying about TAR's fight for Merdeka, and were shown videos of that event many times. They said, watching TAR shouting Merdeka! (7X) sent chills down their spine. I'm sure the feeling was 1,000x more if you witnessed the event live.

As for the snake, I guess you must be one of the naughty ones in class, huh? Spank you!

You listen to Kisah Seorang Biduan in the car?! Hee... hee... Dahlan Zainuddin and his bell-bottomed pants.

There are many songs from our olden days that make me smile whenever I hear them on the radio. "Ingin ku pergi jauh dari mu..." (Alleycats), Flybaits, Adam Ahmad, Black Dog Bone ("Kini engkau menyayangi diriku ini.."), geez... those songs!

I do have a lot in my collection coz MrN also happened to like oldies (his from the 70's mostly). We'd listen to all those evergreen songs in the car, and sing them out during karaoke, sampai the kids pun naik boring ("Baba, it's so 80's!!!") Hee... hee... what to do...

Hi Busymum,

Thanks for the tips. You are right, it's more for us to remember the past while we still do. But it sure is nostalgic to go down memory lane like way... I'm sure you enjoy doing it too.
