Welcome Ong Siew Chuan to Singapore

We welcome Siew Chuan to Singapore, having arrived in Singapore on 2nd June, 2006. Choon Foi arranged for a small 'makan' for him, and here we are, 4 of us meeting at the Meritus Mandarin Singapore, 333 Orchard Road. We met at Treple Three, The Buffet Restaurant at 3.00pm 3rd June 2006 for high-tea.
Yuet Ngor took this picture. Myself at the left with Choon Foi and Siew Chuan at the 'mahjong'-like table.
This is Ong Siew Chuan @ 54! It will be something like over 30 years since many of us last saw him. Now, an IT expert residing in Houston, Texas, USA., and you know, IT is a hot commodity nowadays.
Wondering why they look so serious. Maybe cameraman fogot to say 'cheese'.
Even with 2 hours of talking about the good old days, it is still business not complete and we have to move on as the restaurant is closed for buffet and to be opened for diners. Not enough time for Choon Foi to get his portion of fruits and ice-cream to finish off his meal.
We adjourned to the Top-of-the-M at 35th storey to continue the chat.

We are now at the 35th floor, pouring over a thick stack of old memories that Choon Foi has lugged along. You can see the Singapore skyline at the background.

Another round of drinks and the good old days continued, now with companion of the photos.

Highlites of the old photos is a must, otherwise how can the blogger get to post and comment on them? Choon Foi doing the hard work so that you will be able to see them soon. So look out on your e-mail.

We dispersed at about 7.00pm and wishing Siew Chuan a safe and pleasant onward journey.
