I’m not too sure, but I think it was my 17th birthday party at my home. Photo is off-focused but it’s a gem! Many of my friends in the pic are still in contact after 32 years! What a lasting friendship!

1977 was the year that I peaked in athletics and sports. Group pic of us from Sacred Heart School with coach Steven Tan (far Left) and Brother Albinus (far right).

During the Inter-Division meet in Kuching, I broke the Long Jump record and was awarded the Best Athlete for Boys B. Following that, Wong Hing (Discus, Div A), Ling Hoe Hung (Discus, Div B) and I (Long Jump, Div B) were selected to represent Sarawak in the MSSM in Alor Setar, Kedah.

We also won the Inter-School Boys B basketball. Those were the days when every secondary male student wanted to keep long hair and own a pair bell-bottoms pants.

An old newspaper cutting from 1976 which I kept in my album all these years. I was in Form Three when I received a prize (Group B) in Walkaton fund raising for my alma mater.

In the group pic, Mrs. Wong (5S1 Form Teacher Class of 78) was seated at the far right. She too received a prize for fund raising for her tremendous effort.

One of my most terrifying ordeal was when my Form Two teacher Mrs. Tiong (nee Lee Sing Hua) made me participate in the Inter-Class Elocution Contest in 1975.

As a young novice in public speaking, there were butterflies in my tummy when I stood on stage at the school hall. I didn’t even have the confidence to invite my family members to attend the function. But strangely I came in third in the Junior category. I remember my classmate Stephen Teo, now a Professor at UWS, came in second and Joachim in Form Three, the champion.

Group pic of the participants. Stephen at front row, 1st right. Das Muthy (back row, 2nd right) was my senior and excellent student in Arts side. If my memory serves me right, Das scored straight As for his “A” Levels which was equivalent to achieving a miracle in those days! Joachim the big guy, was seated at back row, 2nd left. I was at the front row, 2nd from the left.
