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.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
