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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
