Shoe boxes are great to me because I store my old pictures, photos and memorabilia in them. I still have my old Scout proficiency badges in one of the boxes, for example.... I look at them a few times a year and not surprisingly my mind wonders back to when the photos were taken, what could have been if I had done certain things differently.....
Where are your shoe boxes? Have you looked into their contents lately? If you have some treasures I would like you to share them with us!
It was a "popular" thing for us school kids to keep a passport size photos of class mates. We used to exchange photos during Forms 3 and 5. Do you remember that practice? What is interesting to me are also the words written behind the photos by these individuals. Some were meaningful. Some were XXXX. From left to right in the uploaded shot above I detail their comments as follows:-
KC Mak - It says " Bye, goodbye, bye-bye.....I just want to said good bye....."
KC Mak again - A little funkier. The words written on the photo were $500,000 WANTED!
Ng Chun Mun - 一路顺风
Chin Yong Yong - 身心愉快 Yong2 头1975-5-9 (That is some 33 years ago)
This other pic was of me riding a bike just outside our former Ipoh house..... Biking was popular, remember? We used to ride a bike to school, and for school activities. The more well-to-do rode "cub jai" .....
In this photo I can see Weng Wah, Chen Kim Wah, Khoo Tuck Ming, Chun Mun, Yuet Fai, Tong Leong, Siew Fook Kheong, Seng Kian and Ah Hor.
This is my Standard 6 photo. Not sure. Maybe Remove Class?
