Love Of My Life - SWALK

While driving home after dropping my girl to tuition, I put on the Bee Gees CD and the first song at random was Melody Fair. When the song was playing, it brought back my childhood memories... I was only 11 when the movie SWALK was shown in Lido cinema and you would not believe how many times I watched this show!

I was Crazy... I WAS and still Am at times... I watched this show more than 10 times!! I was REAL Crazy... over SWALK.. over MARK LESTER... over TRACY HYDE... that was my first movie which made me fall in love with Mark Lester.... I thought I was.. hahahaa... (11 years old is very vulnerable to puppy love!)

I remember buying a lot of magazines like Fanfare, Galaxie just to cut out all their pictures and pasted them into an exercise book...

How I wish I still have these memoirs... they are priceless now.... sigh... all my hard work and effort... my infatuations... my dreams of going to England... all gone as years go by....

Thanks to youtube..... I can still "fall in love again" with them.... once more...

SWALK starring Tracy Hyde, Jack Wild & Mark Lester

wonder how she looks now...

I remember having this black and white pic..
on the front page of my scrap book...
How I wish ... I'm young again..
YESTERDAY ONCE MORE..

  2. I may be young but I grew up listening to oldies, the all time favourite of my family. Bee Gees, Beatles, Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley were my childhood companion...

  7. SWALK was before my time! I had the biggest crush on JTT from Home Improvement and bought dozens of those teeny bopper magazines so I could rip out the posters and hang them on my wall.

  10. I have never heard of this show, but I LOVE the BEE GEES!!! I have a lot of their songs, and remember buying their first album back in the 60's!!!! Since Maurice died, I guess they won't sing together anymore. I never found out if they won the lawsuit or not.

  11. Hi Reana, good for you having these memories. Yes, I too remember them.
    And I too had my pin ups of actresses...I guess when in our teens it was always these movies, actors that will remain with us.
    Have a nice day.

  12. Didn't you post on Mark Lester before? I had a post on this movie long ago too - I love First of May...so sad, the song.

    I saw this movie 1973 in Singapore - rerun... Missed it the first time when screened in the cinemas in Sibu - study time, weekdays...not allowed to watch movies.

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
