Class outing yesterday was pure awesome! Fun fun fun at Siloso beach and teoheng after that ^^ All the sun and sea, ultimate captains ball and our phail volleyball skills, gourmet cupcakes, throwing ball and frisbee around in the sea; and then class choir over a mic that kept on spoiling lol.
It just brings back so much memories from JC days. So many random class outings we had around the country back then; playing basketball after class; singing for PW; being disiao at class bench and during tutorials. Above all of that, however, would be the very fact that bulk of my JC experience was spent with this very special group of ppl. The bittersweetness of mugging for A levels and tracking our progress throughout the two years (with abit of competition here and there haha XD), the trying not to fall asleep and answering one another’s questions during lectures, the interactions we had with our tutors… it’s almost a year since we graduated, but all these scenes come alive in my memories once in a while (:
Watched That Girl in Pinafore some time back. Apart from the fact that I cried during the movie… The nostalgia just hit again, as I watched the ‘students’ go about their daily school life in an adapted version of the hc school uniform. Couldn’t help it but wonder what I would want to include in the movie if I could remake it such that it depicts hc life?
I’d probably include a time lapse of us reporting to school for morning assembly, how the earlier peeps would come at 6.30am and sleep at class bench or try to study. The time I was studying at top floor early in the morning and saw a guy sitting against a wall playing the guitar. The morning announcements on the bridge; Mr Thomas getting his daily dose of coffee at fishtank. The tehbing from the canteen drink stall; the beeline we would make for fried food Friday. That huge myriad of school shirts omg haha so colourful (: 开工 at huangcheng, the ‘道具开饭!’ at 7pm when we get our dabaoed ‘green plate’. Hiding in guitar room after school hours to play some new tunes on the school guitar. Attempts to stargaze in school cos central plaza is just so empty at night. Camping at SRC to do research, study, hang out with fellow SMTP/ISYF ppl, filming for SSRC exco elections, pretending to be ‘elements’ 😛 The last few days of formal lessons, when we walked around school during Chem tutorial to take class pics. Mr How singing his very own 7B song for our class montage. Graduation and the photospamming after that. Coming to school for A level papers, all the last-minute mugging and chilling. Going home with Sarah and Songhao after A level papers. My first MAF as an alumnus. Coming back to school for A level results, all the tears and laughter and nostalgia.
Will this story continue? Hopefully, because I wish that 1 year, 5 years, 10 years, 20 years from now, 11S7B will still meet up like this for a class outing at least once a year, to reminisce the good old days and update one another on our lives, and just have fun like how we did back in our JC days. You guys had formed such a huge influence on my life; I may stash you all deeper into my heart to make space for more good days to come, but I’ll never forget you, my one and only JC class.
Thank you all, for everything you’ve given me in the past two years. ❤
