....... The Fire of Love - Episode 1.



There was no glow and Maizie had no time for callow Kiwis.


Rubbish!


More rubbish.  Maizie dreamt of becoming a train-driver.

Maizie had a second-hand MG Midget, not a  Morris Minor which was the standard vehicle for Learner-Drivers.



Maizie trained for the NCC  (National Cadet Corps) and was appointed as the Commanding Officer for the Girls' Unit at Yusof Ishak Secondary School.  She was quite a tough young bird - then.



YISS  was also known as "Yang Itu Saya Suka".  For me then, it was Riduan, front row, third from right and maybe ....???


When he learned of her military training in an adjunct of the formidable Singapore Armed Forces , he quickly backed off and retreated to the wet and windy English Wimpdom.



COMING  SOON   -    Episode  2

I say the boy from Paikok is better looking than the soldier boy.

Looking forward to Episode 2, just love the drawings !

Thank you BaitiBadarudin.

It's just a silly ole woman and man getting mushy and sentimental.

Hey ph,

You are biased just because he cooks lovely banana pancakes.

Oh dear Wan Sharif,

I just wish he weren't my tutor at University. He never stops regaling that connection.

Thank you fot popping in.

CO at NCC? Wow, I did not know that! After 4 years of NCC at JSS, I was still Private.
The CO feared me, though. That was good enough.

Thank you Bru,

How did you manage to get into the pukka NCC?

I can imagine what a pain you were - you have a knack for it!

I suppose that's why you're good at what you do.
