Ipoh Gathering with KF on 27 / 08 / 2009

KIN FONG + TALI AND THE IPOH GANG had so much fun on Thursday night reveling and enjoying snow beers + KOK that they have no time to send us their report!

( KF'svision of that night in Ipoh ! )

We shall give them until Monday to properly report back to the Group or else ..... 嘿嘿嘿

To Captain & the rest of the 78ers,

We indeed had a wonderful night on 27th August 2009, but it was not as pictured by captain. We do not necessary have to associate ourselves with the 'snow beer ' & ' Kok ' to be happy. Don't be surprised that we didn't consume any beer during that night ! ( only James had a can of Heinekan ). We had 1/2 bottle of Black Label Limited Edition during the dinner & finished 1 bottle of Green Label in the 2nd session. Total no of drinkers = 7. Everyone enjoy the drink. No casualty for that night ( incl. Tali. ha ! ha ! ha !)

The dinner is normal. Average food. Specially ordered for KF : 四大天王,清蒸金凤, 啦啦 , 豆腐etc. I don't know how much it cost, since a generous 78er has settled the bill without out awareness. Thank you.

Kee Mun + the rest of the uncles

We went to Tong Leong's house & continued the night in his special platform cabin built next to the antique train coach. A very nice place to have a gathering like this for the old fellas. In short, a very enjoyable & memorable night for everyone, maybe with the exception of KF, he's been very quiet for the whole night. ( I think he's disappointed with the outcome of our arrangement for the night..... hee ! hee ! hee ! No Kok for session for him. He was misleaded by captain that it should be a wild night with the Ipoh Mari ! )

Tong Leong's private cabin

By the way, still waiting for the photos from Siew Yee Wah. Log on to this blog more often. You might be lucky to see the photos. Ha ! Ha ! Ha ! Cheers !

Have a nice weekend & Happy Merdeka !

The Pilot of 78er

We all know that there's a pilot in our 78er group.
We all know that he is very enthusiatic about planes.
We all know that he's at the same age level as most of us.
We all know that he is going to take his CPL test very soon.
We are also very concern that whether his age will affects his flying skill.
We are more concern that if he would land his plane like what we've seen here !

Ha ! Ha ! Ha !

Anyway, we all wish him all the best in his coming CPL test.

Cheers ! Auspilot.

You'll Never Walk Alone , 78ers

Judged by the responses of concern shown towards Wong sir's fever & sore throat,

it's good to know that you'll never walk alone, my friends.

Come on. Cheers. For this special friendship,

that has lasted for more than 30 + years,

and going to last longer,


It's My Coke !

The Fight over Coke by 78ers.

One of the 78ers, Wong sir was down with a slight fever & sore throat.

As usual, the 78ers uncles are so concern about that, and dug out all type of recipes :-

KM : Wong Sir, Warm Coke + Ginger !

Chut-Chut : Forget about the Coke. Use Warm lemon + Ginger instead.

Tali : Wong Sir, Coke + Kopitiam girl sure will get you well very soon !

Captain : Warm Coke + Ginger + Warm Lemon + Kopitiam girl ; stirred well, but not shaken ; add 2 shots of Blue Label whiskey ; lie down, tuck up a thick blanket in a stuffy room and read 老夫子 comic books.

Chut-Chut : With a kopitiam girl and Tongkat Ali Ginseng coffee would work better, I believe.

Wong Sir : Alamak ! What's all these ? I only want the Original Coke !

WONG SIR 。。。。。 老夫子???


KOPITIAM GIRL: Can you introduce Chut Chut to me?

老夫子(also Wong Sir in this case): Sure, but be careful, he is on a tongkat ali diet! He even tries to introduce it to me when I am sick!


KOPITIAM GIRL: Don't worry, I know I can handle a man like Chut Chut.

老夫子: I hope so!


老夫子: Chut Chut this is my girlfriend.

KOPITIAM GIRL: Hello my dear Chut Chut, how's the tongkat ali beverages helping you?


Chut Chut: Oh.... my tongkat ali is making my libido work overtime!


老夫子: Tali, Kee Mun come and help contain this monster!

One Cool Windy Night in Ipoh with Kin Fong

This posting is in response to the ' One Wintry Melbourne Night ' on 21st August 2009 posted by the Auspilot .

Our ' Grik Man ' from Australia has returned to Ipoh without the awareness of the Auspilot, and I understand that Auspilot has been looking hi & lo for him on last Saturday & Sunday.

Tali was also surprised to receive the call from this ' Grik Man ' on 23rd August evening , thinking that he was pulling his leg when told that he was actually in Ipoh. Kin Fong has returned to Ipoh on an emergency personal matter.

A group of the 78er : Kee Mun, Tong Leong, Hock Choong, Yee Wah & Tali , has hosted a small gathering for Kin Fong - the ' Grik Man ', in Greentown Ipoh Kopitiam. The night was cool & windy. The uncles are happy to sip coffee at this round table conference with Kin Fong.

We tried to contact Wong Sir, but couldn't get him through his mobile. An email received from him this morning read “ Hi guys, Sorry just saw the missed calls and SMS from you this morning, couldn't call you back because my pre-paid card had expired. Have been running a light fever with sore throat these few days so to be safe I am under self imposed home quarantine now. Will let you all know later if I can make it to the dinner this Thursday. ”

A ' wash the dust ' ( 洗尘)dinner has been fixed for Kin Fong on Thursday ( 27th August) at Marpoh ( 子子 宝)restaurant in Ipoh Garden.

Siew Yee Wah, the dedicated professional photographer of the 78er, has taken some group pictures for the gathering of the night. He promised to Tali to send these pictures in his first availble free time. However, an email received from him this morning were without any attachment of the photos, although he stated in his mail " hope the attached photos can get through to you ".

So, sorry mates. No pictures this round. ( with courtesy from yee wah ).

Aiyah Tali, 我 Sunday 有 call 你嘛! 有相喔!

Will post the picture later when I have received it. ( hopefully, ha ha ha ! )

Back to 1979

This One for the 78er Uncles

One night, after the older couple had retired for the night, the woman became aware that her husband was touching her in a most unusual manner.

He started by running his hand across her shoulders and the small of her back. He ran his hand over her breasts, touching them very lightly. Then, he proceeded to run his hand gently down her side, sliding his hand over her stomach, and then down the other side to a point below her waist.

He continued on, gently feeling her hips, first one side and the other. His hand ran further down the outside of her thighs. His gentle probing then started up the inside of her left thigh, stopped and the returned to do the same to her right thigh.

By this time the woman was becoming aroused and she squirmed a little to better position herself.

The man stopped abruptly and rolled over to his side of the bed.

"Why are you stopping darling?" she whispered.

He whispered back, " I found the remote!"

哈 ! 哈 ! 哈 ! 哈 !

James Wong

( sorry about this blur-blur picture, but that's the way to show the true colour of James Wong )

This James Wong is an old classmate of mine during the secondary school. We have lost contact for more than 30 years. Catching up with him in the last few months & obviously he is very supportive to our group mail. He would on & off send in some cool jokes . Claiming himself as a nut towards the computer tech, he is yet to forward his cool stuff into our group blog yet.

He was nicknamed ' toothless tiger ' in those days & he has now became a fierce tiger, biting you silently with his hilarous jokes. Some of them are too sexy that I can't reprint them in my blog !

He has been coming back to his hometown very often and we used to have ' snow beer ' sessions in the older part of the town. ( hey, he is a good drinker ! )

It just popped into my mind while laughing through his jokes tonite : there are so much of similarity of this James Wong to that late James Wong ( 黄沾, 又名不文沾 ) of Hong Kong ! 搞笑一派 ! Is it just a coincidence or he purposely take that same name ??

A Very Touching Moment !

Year : 1975
Situation : Last day of school

Arjun Singh and Pargat Singh are very close friends. The whole school talked about their friendship. They had been friends right from their kindergarten days. They have studied together, roamed around together, sat together in school, ate together. They both wanted to become Police officials and serve the country.But today was a day they always dreaded. It was their last day together.

On their way back from School Arjun started talking.

Arjun : " Bro! I am moving to a different city to study. I will miss you , man "

Pargat: " I will miss you too mate. But nothing can break our friendship. We will at least meet once every year. "

Arjun: " Yes , that is a deal. "

And they parted with tears in their eyes... As time went by, both got busy with their work life. They kept their promise for two years and after that they moved on with their own lives and in the process Arjun lost his contact with Pargat. Time went by and both became Police Officers.

Year: 2009

Venue: The Police station where Arjun works

Tring... Tring... Arjun picks up the call and he gets a pleasant surprise...

"Is this Arjun?" "Yes. Who is on the line?" " Bro. Its Pargat! I just found out that you are posted in this station" Tear drops welled up Arjun's eyes .

Arjun: " Where are you? "

Pargat: " I am standing outside the Police station. Come Out ! "
Arjun: " Is it? I am coming right away ! "

Arjun rushed out of the Police station and saw Pargat standing outside. They were seeing each other for the first time after thirty years. He wanted to go and hug his friend. But he could not hug his friend.

It was a very touching moment for both of them :

Have you ever seen a touching moment like this?

A 78er : Hey ! Tali . I am also very TOUCHING one leh ! Hee ! Hee !
