My Alma Mater

30th June-2July 2006. It was my old school's 50th year celebration then. And I, not wanting to miss the event, went back to the school, which was about 5 hours ride by bus from my home. My 2 best friends (Elin & Tie) and I purposely went by bus, just to capture the feelings of being a schoolgirl again. Even though many months have past, the memory never fades. Here are some of the photos taken and I know it was not much. Some photos were too blurred and not worth sharing here.













Now that the schooldays were far behind, the friendship bond formed between each of us remains and may it never be broken. Let the srikandi spirit flows eh?

The song below was our farewell song during the last few days of high school 17 years ago. This song was originally sung by Alan Parsons. Every time I hear this song, it brings tears to my eyes. Hope you enjoy the song as much as I do.






Old and Wise

As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows approaching me
And to those I left behind
I wanted you to know
You've always shared my deepest thoughts
You follow where I go

CHORUS
And oh when I'm old and wise
Bitter words mean little to me
Autumn winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they asked me if I knew you
I'd smile and say you were a friend of mine
And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes
Oh when I'm old and wise

As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows surrounding me
And to those I leave behind
I want you all to know
You've always shared my darkest hours
I'll miss you when I go

CHORUS
And oh, when I'm old and wise
Heavy words that tossed and blew me
Like autumn winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they ask you if you knew me
Remember that you were a friend of mine
As the final curtain falls before my eyes
Oh when I'm old and wise

As far as my eyes can see
