When the exams came close, a bunch of us would gather at Ian’s place to study. There was a function room where we would all immerse ourselves in our books, interspersed with the odd prank.
At around 2am, we’ll all get hungry then drive down to the nearby prata shop to get supper before heading back to sleep.
We bought all these clothes for L-A before she was born
“Organic Rabbit”… Strange wordings for baby’s clothings…
One of the nice things that my bunch of classmates used to do was that we would gather at the College of Physical Education (CPE to those in the know) and play basketball for the whole morning. After that intensive session, we would then adjourn to a nearby A&W’s, Macs or even the Ponderosa buffet to pig out.
BTW, the title of this blog entry is in reference to the title of the song I was listening to whenever I was on my way to the CPE.
Found this grave in a dog cemetry while I was in Perth. (Don’t ask what I was doing in a dog cemetry…)
I was 9 when I was introduced by Henry Teo to the world of computers. We went over to his place to play games on his monochrome Apple II PC, and from there, we proceeded to spend whole afternoons programming basic text games just for kicks.
I didn’t have a computer, so I had to write my code down on A4 papers and then type it all in when I was at his place…
This is supposed to be a famous sight that you should catch if you go to Perth. I thought it wasn’t really worth the loooong bus ride, but I suppose it isn’t everyday that you see a rock that looks like a crashing sea wave
Back in the days before Holland V became commercialised, there was an immunization centre of sorts near where St James Church is now. I remember my mum brought me there for a jab one day, and as a reward for being a good boy, she bought me this toy which shot out soft plastic darts and was modelled like the web shooter that Spiderman uses.
There’s a bit of history behind the fence. Google it to find out more!
One of the great flexibilities that my first job offered was that lunch-time was “flexible” to a certain extent, and a group of us in the same department decided to go for some exercise during lunch time at the company club to keep ourselves fit.
Most of the time, we could not fit our exercise routine within the one hour lunch time, but I suppose no one really minded since the bosses knew about it but never really brought up a case with us…
Luck and good timing. Did this using a compact camera with just one shot…
