Hi Kayes,


Thanks for all these beautiful pictures of my Alma Mater. Do you know what is the building next to the Teerath Ram Badminton Hall?

I assumed it is the Principal's house since a few previous Principals stayed there. During my time it was Teerath Ram but it was a wooden bungalow then. To make doubly sure I will ask the security guard next trip Smile

Hi Kayes,


The next time you are there ask about the Red Building too. If I am not mistaken, it used to be the book store where we can purchase the new text books for the new year.
As for the Teerath Ram Badminton Hall, I wish they could put a new coat of paint over it. I had fond memories of this Badminton Hall. It was opened when I was a student there in the mid '70s. In one of the first "International Event" Liem Swee King from Indonesia was there to compete. I was a few of the Prefects that were asked to take care of the players. Liem Swee King asked me to warm him up with a few strokes. Sure, within a few strokes, I was totally "warmed up" !

Hi ACS77,
Liem Swee King was the next badminton superstar that emerged from Indonesia after the great Rudy Hartono retired from the sport. It must have been an unforgettable experience for you to spar with a maestro of the game. That 'warm-up' will be etched in your memory forever.

Wow, lucky you .... to be able to spar with Liem Swee King Smile You are right about the badminton hall. They should spruce it up a bit.

Hi Kayes & Ken Chan,


Thinking back, it was indeed very memorable for me to see Liem Swee King. I also met Tjun Tjun, Ade Chandra and Christian Hadinata. As for Malaysians playing in the tournament, there were James Selvaraj and Saw Swee Leong.


What Memories !

I had so many fond memories, playing the fool most of the time in school. Even made a few 10.10am visits to Brain's office for what you know la. Had a love/hate relationship with him. He was my history teacher as well. Had a lot of respect for him; the only teacher who commands respect of all the students.

Hi Kayes


Thanks for sharing these absolutely beautiful and magnificent photos of Ipoh. You are a gem! After over 3 decades away (though my last visit was 2006), fond memories of Ipoh have sustained me, especially during the cold winter months. I also like the old street names before they got renamed.


Cheers

Hi eddie


If I am not mistaken, our paths crossed many times. I have scrutinized the ACS Prefects photo of 77 - ok, it's not in HD, but didn't you play football in Housing Trust, and left for SIA with one of the Lim brothers (Lim Soon Hsien & Lim Soon Seong)? You subsequently got posted to Oz.

Hi Kayes


I am truly in awe of your photo collection of Ipoh. You can turn even a simple tree (there's a photo called "Ipoh Tree") into a glorious pic. Do you have any black and white photos of Ipoh during the the 60's or 70's?


I remember watching the Exorcist in the mid 70s with a school mate at the Sun cinema(?)(the one across the Main Convent school, and next to the Christian cemetary). Reason I remember watching it there was because we got soaked getting there, and were literally shivering from the cold from the air con ....as well as fear!. There was a lot of hype surrounding that film at the time.


Ipoh has given me plenty of great memories....including watching the Hawaii dance troop performing at the town hall (or somewhere near there), and then getting locked out of the house for returning late.


Your are now based in Penang, right? My sis lives there, overlooking the food stalls at the corner of Gurney Drive. A lovely island indeed.

hi Richard, I did take a lot of pics in the 60s and 70s but unfortunately most of them were either on slides or Polaroid. The Polaroid ones have faded to faint vintage colours and the slides are in boxes stacked deep in the store room. I have lived in Penang since 1974 but I always had a branch office in Ipoh (up to 1993) which meant I spent a lot of time in Ipoh even though I resided in Penang. I daresay my heart is always in Ipoh.

hi kayes


As the saying goes, "Home is where the heart is". Penang is a good second home then, with its cool sea breezes and magnificent beaches. chow kway teow vs Penang Laksa. Incidentally, the best chow kway teow I had was from a chap who used to cycle through Housing Trust in the 70's. Something about the aroma from the magic wok.

Hi Richard


If you are the same Richard I am think of then our paths have more than crossed. We used to be buddies man. Whenever I drive past your old house, I always look in just in case I see you there. Your dad's Mitsubishi is still there right?


Hey, email me when you get the chance.

hi eddie


Been waiting a while for you to sign into this site. I even asked kayes if he could help in contacting you.


Yes, the Mitsubishi is still there. However, sadly, my dad passed away sometime ago. I am sure you remember my dad well!


eddie, I have send a mail to your mailbox, so we could take this offline.


Well, thanks to this site, I have managed to link up with a friend I have not seen for more than 30 years.
