My wife and I drove to Klang for this function organized by the OPA of my alma mater, Anglo Chinese School, Sitiawan, and some volunteer organizers to gather friends from my hometown, even from different schools, for a time of reminiscence and enjoyment. As one of the organizers said, when we grow old and children leave us, who else do we turn to but friends of old? Even though we may not have kept faithful contact, memories of former classmates always rekindle friendships anew. So it was with this thought that I set aside yesterday to meet up with my old friends. I was disappointed that some did not make it although they live in the vicinity but I was encouraged by others who came from even farther than me.
The venue was the Restoran Taman Rashna and former class monitor Kao gave clear directions though I also used my GPS to double check. We arrived earlier to chat a little. The combination of good food, good conversation, free beer, free table gifts and free door gifts made the event a great winner. And it cost just RM50 a head.
Leaving the restaurant at 10.30pm I depended on my GPS now loaded with a new updated map to get home.
