Walking Down Memory Lane At Convent Of The Holy Infant Jesus, Ipoh

THE VERY NEXT MORNING AFTER OUR REUNION PARTY, some of us made our way to our former school... CONVENT OF THE HOLY INFANT JESUS!

Thanks to the committee, we were allowed to go into the school without any barrier and we really had a good time remiencing once again our school days.... I was in this school ever since I was six years old, the old kindergarten is still there though it has been converted to a dining hall for the orphans... To my surprise, a handful of us attended the same kindergarten at the same place and that makes us.... er... how many years of friendship???   Endless years!  Better don't keep counting...

  We had to focus on a few cameras and many ended up looking at different angles... 
Somebody mentioned... "We must capture Jesus too.. No Jesus, No US!"
Then we split up to our individual class...
Only a handful of us from the same class in Form 5 who came for this event...
Then it was all random pictures!
Still at the front of the school field...
Yes, Jesus is UP here.. 
Our school badges... 
Welcome to CHIJ!
Remember this?  
Primary assembly....
Our secondary school hall...
I remember we had our recess time here during our primary school days...
Walking down a few steps, we adjourned to the secondary side...
The Primary school hall where we had our music lessons then....
Those days it was only cement flooring... but now.... wow! 
Our classes along the veranda... 
Leading to the orhanage and kindy hall...
 Sister Mary Michael... our English Teacher!
We... her former students!!
Thank you Sister for the many years you have contributed to the Convent School!
 
Ladies...ladies....
 
Recess time area for the secondary....
 My Form Four sitting partner for the whole year.... 
Assembly area for the secondary students.... 
A lot of sweet memories here...
One incident was... we were made to stand in the sun when our class made too much noise one time!
 Now we are really disciplined and good.....
 CHIJ... shining upon us..... 
That is about all for this post....
Take a bow....
Thank you to all my Teachers who "nurtured" me for so many years.... 
Thank you to my friends who walk together with me for so many years too...
Thank you to all of you who come by faithfully to read my blog...
THANK YOU!!

  2. What a lovely homecoming!!!

    So nice that they've retained and maintained the place so very well. In Singapore, the original CHIJ is now CHIJMES - I think the school has been relocated some place else. Sure it can never ever be the same, not at all. Sad!

  4. Claire, I also attended this same school CHIJ from Form 1 to 5 which makes me your senior of 4 or 5 years. Thank you for all the photos of our old schools to refresh my memory of the good old days. Those days, we used to play netball on the front field in front of the school because of lack of playing field.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
