|34th Anniversary of Rainbow Girls and Teech|
24 July 2011
|Laughing all the way to the Ferry|
The accommodation was 5 Star - two persons to a chalet resting on water.
We had long lazy breakfasts.
They wanted to re-live their old days at Jurong Secondary School when they ponteng school and had roti canai at the mamak stall at Jurong Market - but of course with a different ambience.
They took to the rain like dried ikan bilis to water.
I was hoping and looking for sprinklings of magic stars to enhance our holiday.
Maybe a gathering with the tall Scottish leprechaun might do the trick.
While enjoying the breathtaking beauty of the gorges and canopy of trees surrounding Gunung Mat Chinchang, I reflected on these former students of mine from 34 years ago - these four Rainbow Girls. Despite the passing years they are still loyal and constant friends. They have changed in some ways but remained untouched by the wear and tear of life.
Here's Oi Bek as serene as ever then and now.
Demure and gentle Rohaya became more demure and gentle and sweet - a lovely and loving mother and grandmother and friend.
Lely looks very 'stylo-wylo' in her hat ........
However, you four girls do not need any magic for the rest of your life. You have enough, stored in you, and of your own making to bring joy and enchantment to the people around you and especially to Uncle and Teech.
