22 Oct 2017 – Knowledge Over Ignorance
Sat: Congratulations to Zai for the marriage of her only daughter Syazana to Mohamad Nazrin.
Tkx for a lovely lunch reception to Zai/mother and Hariz/brother of the beautiful bride@Novotel/Clarke Quay. Did not seem that long ago when Syazana&Hariz were just kids, now both married and Hariz is going to be a father in Dec!
Aisha&son Daniel (Aisha was pregnant with him when we were @MarinaHouse-1999 which does not exist now!), tkx to Aileen&Alan for the ride to&from to the hotel; Irene&daughter Phyllis who was one of my piano-students 15yrs ago.
Good to catch up with Peggy (classmate and friend from 1962/CHIJ), Carol, Francis, X-colleagues from H&H.
Entertaining evening@SOTA to celebrate its 10Anniversary, Sing’theatre presents Forever Young***a hilarious musical.
It is 2067 and a nursing home houses a group of actors who were previously pillars of the SIN arts scene. Looked after by their no-nonsense nurse, Sister Sara…
Let’s dance in style, let’s dance for a while
Heaven can wait we’re only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you going to drop the bomb or not?
Let us die young or let us live forever
We don’t have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music’s for the sad men
Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders we’re getting in tune
The music’s played by the mad men
Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later they all will be gone
Why don’t they stay young
It’s so hard to get old without a cause
I don’t want to perish like a fading horse
Youth’s like diamonds in the sun,
And diamonds are forever
So many adventures couldn’t happen today,
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
Oh let them come true
Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever, or never – Alphaville
Certainly do NOT want to live forever but as long as there is life in me, I will do my best to be young at heart and live it to the fullest 🙂 No matter how young at heart, did not make it to the hunt for Orionid Meteor Showers (01.00hrs). When age catches up, sleep is the priority!
Sun: wow! tkx for all your over-whelming ‘Likes’ and nice comments in FB for my latest profile pix. Might even like it more if you can read what is written on the chair 🙂 Must let YeeJit know what a good photographer he is. Sunday dinner@Jo’s.
This ordeal has been stressful for the whole family. Thank you and appreciations to all for your gracious support with kind messages and words – Good over Evil prevails for this Deepavali Festival. There are no doubts in me that my bro is good&kind and would be cleared, but it is sad and unfortunate that there are ppl out there who are mean and envious.
