We don’t get together that much these days, but when we do the survivors of the ACS Sitiawan, SPM 1990 batch, create one hell of a ruckus when we sit around the table talking about… well, anything that comes to mind. Earlier tonight, a bunch of them fell upon the Tenth Floor for a gathering and of course, to eat. There was also talk about peeing or hocking a loogie onto passers-by or the swimming pool below from the window and/or balcony.
However, some sort of decorum was maintained since there were kids in the room.
Apart from our household, the roll call included: Teik Sing (with Michelle and Baby Ashley-Joan), Shahar, Tern Lik, Nguk Lui, Alvin and family, Hudson and Kok Soon.
Ain cooked two variations of bihun goreng, both of which were tasty. Teik Sing bought appetizers and desert, Shahar bought some kuih, Hudson brought chips and Kok Soon, who arrived last, brought a barrel of KFC.
Highlights of the night includes: bunch of belly laughs, computer tech talk with Shahar and Teik Sing, talking about getting in shape (“Round… is also a shape!”), going through The Album looking at faces and asking “Where is this guy now?”, more belly laughs, trying to figure out how Hudson gets an monumental amount of information from tabloids, Kok Soon getting drunk on orange juice, Hudson trying to get singer Camelia’s phone number out of Nguk Lui, a couple more belly laughs and some talk of backup singing and breaking and entering Mei Lin’s house next month.
The dinner also doubled as a farewell dinner for Teik Sing since he’ll be leaving for Australia for a new job in the next month or so.
We’ve also planned for our next gathering, which will be at Mei Lin’s apartment. Mei, if you’re reading this, there’ll be a time next month or so where there’ll be a horde descending upon your place. You don’t have to be at home. Just make sure you got 42″ plasma TV in the living room, fridge is fully stocked and tell security to ignore the noise coming from your house.
Oh, and you might need to replace your lock after that.
