110 Shades of Blue

It was an amazing reunion with high school darlings during the 110th anniversary dinner of Main Convent Ipoh on 7 January at WEIL Hotel. Still the wackiest bunch. Keep this up, and we will never age a day in years to come. 

Note of caution:
You will see lots of blue ahead so if you don't like the colour, please skip this post entirely. :P

Most of us who had been waiting for this moment to get together since end of August last year. We made it! 

It was regretful that some of us could not join us that evening. We should really plan another one exclusively for '05 batch soon. 

The peaceful ballroom before the crazy girls murdered the silence with our laughter and non-stop chatters.

Blue refreshment. Not my fondest kind of taste. 

Donned in ao dai for the grand old lady's 110th birthday. 

After this event, I will lock it up for an indefinite number of years before I have the chance to wear it again. Or I might put on so much weight that I could only look at it forlornly regretting what my gluttony had cost me. 

Food is not the focus in this event. It's the people.

Wei Li, the brainy and class rep. Also my add math tutor during one of the school holidays once. So, so glad to meet you again!

We are just so in love with the yellow carpet.

A photo with Mr. Phuah, my Physics teacher way back in Form 4 and 5. I was always bugging him those two years because of the challenge I had with this subject. Hahaha...

Another shot with the girls. 

I met a twin from Vietnam! Thanks to Amy for the lovely shot. 

Happy birthday once again!

Happy 2017!

Happy new year, everyone! 2016 has passed by as swiftly as it came. I just want to wish everyone a blessed 365 days. Correction: Technically, remaining 363 days as this post came late.

As usual, new year resolutions are not my forte and I shall just live my life in the moment till 2018 comes along. 

Here are some stroopwafels to whet your appetite on the third day of twenty seventeen. 

My breakfast on this spectacular morning
