College Friends

I have blogged about my school friends and even my colleagues. But another group of special friends which I haven't blog about are my college friends.

I took South Australian Matriculation (SAM) from Disted-Stamford College, Penang (previously known as Disted College). Then I continued on to earn my Bachelor Degree doing twinning with Deakin University and finished my last year of degree in Melbourne, Australia. I have made many good friends along the way.

I went to 'korek' out a few pics taken during my college days. They are a bit blur coz I scanned it using my scanner and the quality is not that good.

This is one of the pic i treasured most. This pic was taken at Danny's house in Tanjung Bungah, Penang. He lived near me and I used to fetch him to college on days our time matched! He helped me a lot for my IT and Maths paper.

Group picture taken at one of Disted's Lecture Hall. I have lost touch with them except for Ai-Leen and TJ. Heard that Rosalyn is still at Dell. As for Chuan and Grace, well...who can update me?

This pic was taken at the Rasa Sayang Hotel, Penang before the renovation took place. Lay Ming's aunt gave us a 50% discount to flavour Waka and up til now is one of my most memorable Japanese buffet dinner. I remembered I gobbled up almost 15 fresh oysters if I am not mistaken! ;P

This pic was taken in 6/74 Glyndon Road's kitchen, Australia.
They are 2 of my very closest friends. Tarr Phai and Seow Wei. I grew close with Seow Wei only when I went over to Melbourne. Somehow, we just clicked straightaway. We could spend the whole day talking without getting tired and I slept over her place many nights when I was there! Seow Wei was the one who intro-ed me to Tarr Phai! Without Tarr Phai's car in Melb, we would have not enjoyed many late nights of fun! Remember Texas Chainsaw Masaccre, guys?

This pic was taken in 6/74 Glyndon Road's living room sofa. Tarr Phai intro-ed me to Jonathan. He is from East Malaysia if I am not mistaken. This guy is a joke man! He calls himself "mermaid" which until now I cannot understand why! Why would a guy call himself a mermaid? *scratches head*. I've lost touch with him and I think I shd make it a point to search him out...OK resolution 2009!

This pic was taken on one of our many stops on our way to the Great Ocean Road, Aus. I took SAM with them and Phooi Yee is now an accountant while I am not sure what is Wern Lynn doing now!

They are 3 people whom I shared 10 months of my life with night and day! They were my housemates when I was in Melbourne, Aus from Feb-Dec 2003. This pic was taken at the Tesselaar Tulip Festival! Adrian is now in KL, Ndru at Gochecorp and Ee Lyn is with Dell. I miss you guys!

These 2 pics were taken at 6/74, Glyndon Road (the place which was home to Seow Wei, Debbie, Yit Fung and Suki in Melb). We had many great food there, many mahjong sessions, many sleepovers. I remembered there was once their electricity billed went up to nearly AUS500 for 3 mths! hahaha.


This pic was taken in my room and on my bed in 2/53 McIntyre Street.
Jas and Sue Mei are now both in Australia. I miss Sue Mei a lot!

This pic was taken at Healesview Sanctuary, Australia - a place where i got to pet koalas and kangaroos. It was a trip organized by the church.

Wow...what a journey! I'm sorry if I have missed out any of my college friends, but pls blame it to the era where digital cams are not very popular yet! :P
I miss those college days. I even miss taking exams with you guys! :D
