32 YEARS ON.....

Saturday, 5th September 2009 - six of us (Maria, Yin Peng, Li Za, Gaik Kee, Lai Yin and myself) drove to Kuala Lumpur for a very special meeting! We have pre-arranged to meet up with some of our school mates who are residing there.
For ladies, any outing without our other half will mean......SHOPPING. We went to IKEA, shopped and had lunch there before proceeding to the Atria where Tracy's boutique "EYE CANDY" is located. Tracy has arranged hi-tea for us outside the boutique and we were expecting about 20 gals to come by as some had prior engagements which could not be changed when this meet up was arranged.

Our hi-tea started at around 2.30pm and continued until the shop's closing time at 8pm. For the record, the hi-tea was delicious which was a combo of nyonya finger food and some cakes and sandwiches. We were so pleased that those who confirmed their attendance, came even for a short while. It was a blast catching up with each over the lost years....some whom we did not see since with left our dear alma mater - the MAIN CONVENT of Ipoh! And the memories came flooding back when we started to sing the school song....

The whole gang
Those of us who were still around at 8pm then adjourned to have dinner at the Esquire Kitchen Restaurant on the ground floor of the Atria. We were such a noisy group in the restaurant!
It was such a memorable day and we resolve to do another one pretty be continued!

Hopping in & out of blogs somehow landed me here :-) Btw, I'm also a true Ipoh Main Convent gal (left end of 1975 after F5) now residing in the Rice Bowl of M'sia. Nice to have "met" u :-)

You were at Atria?!?! I live near the Atria! And surely you saw that ugly coloured yellow and blue building of a college right? LOL

By the way did you see the little craft shop in Atria? I think it's on the same floor as Eye Candy. A bit expensive lor so don't bother to buy anything.

And I just love eating at the Esquire Kitchen!
