Lanterns at 3rd

It was after the PKV Junior Visitation on Monday (Mooncake Festival) that I bumped into this group on the way out of college.

This obviously wasn't the official 3rd Lantern Walk. I guessed it was the PM group, having some fun after Haluansiswa last week.

I asked Gabriel, "Ah, all of you PM this year is it?"
He said, "Yeah, second time."
"Hah?! Second time? Oh, you're in third year already!"

I still find it hard to believe that people like Emily are in third year, and people like Firdy, Adila, Hwei and the law gang in fourth/final.

It was so nice to see Uncle and Aunty Foong again. A welcome, familiar sight in a rapidly transforming campus.

Mr & Mrs

Ryan and Audrey Lo.

Showers of blessings!

Well, not quite yet. It's only 10.00 p.m. on Friday on the other side of the planet.

But here's a hearty congratulations, in advance!

Dewan Tunku Canselor

[The Dewan Tunku Canselor is] unsurpassed in concrete plasticity. Despite its concrete expression, the building is appropriately tropical and has weathered well over the years. Every year, convocations are still held in this building, which is the iconic centre of the university.

They built the KPS Auditorium, they built a ghastly white 'new' Chancellery, and they built a so-called 'second' DTC.

But there will ever always only be one Experimental Theatre, one 'old' Chancellery, and one DTC. Dato' Kington Loo left behind a legacy set in stone, and one that will continue to weather well... just like the students of this age-old institution.

Here's to all of you, to all of us.

Convo 2011. Happening this 3-8 October!

What was I thinking, camwhoring with a fisheye lens, that night after the 'voyage' on the Hōkūle'a.

The last night of our first leg in Honolulu, before our week on the Big Island.

Good times.
