At the Phuket’s Vegetarian Festival some years back

Started early at 5.30 am, we walked to the Ban Keow Temple about a km away. Tut tut is lesser in Phuket as compared to Hatyai. Armed with goggle and cotton-wool as earplugs we are ready to shoot … even with fire-crackers thrown over us.

October Luncheon of Penang Class-mates   Leave a comment


October Luncheon of Penang Class-mates

October Luncheon of Penang-based Class-mates of Penang Free School Class of 1964 – 1970 on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at Flamingo Hotel Cafe, Tg Bungah, Penang. Our Guest is Mr Wong Weng Choon (in white T-shirt) who now resides in Singapore. He was our school’s gymnast until he went to Japan on an educational scholarship in Kyoto University. He said the Japanese gymnasts were too good and practises without stopping so he gave up.
