Segar's Visit to Singapore

It is our pleasure to invite Segar for a get-together dinner with him on his working visit to Singapore. Some have not seen him since 1968 while most of us have not seen him since 1970, the year we left Ledang English Secondary School, now called Sekolah Menengah Ledang after going through the Malaysianisation process.
This picture was taken inside the restaurant, Iniaval Pte Ltd at 37 Chander Road, which is off Race Course Road in the heart of Little India on 16 January 2007.
Here, there were 9 of us: Nerine Seng, Yuet Ngor, Bee Huan, Segar, Choon Foi, Chong Cher, Pak Chong, Kim Teck and Lee Siong. The weather was good compared to all the raining over the last few days.
We had our chicken nasi briani on banana-leave meals and some other add-ons to go with lime juices.
The nasi briani, not too oily and just about right spices, just like those you get in South India. Ask Pak Chong how it was, and he would like to have another round, except that the tummy's out of space.

Talking about youngest wife, Ledang girls...some of those secrets out in the open for the first time.
All the subjects, from A to Z of the past got thrown into sound waves. Noisy crowd, but when The Tempest and Prospero were discussed, you cannot but recalled what has passed.
Sometimes you will run out of steam, so just relax.
And some fruits to end the day too. We wish Segar a safe and pleasant journey home on 18 Jan. and wish him all the best in his new job as CEO of Alcatel Asia-Pacific.
