Mind Blowing

Thoughts and other crap on people, life and maybe footie...
My Haiku:
I wrote this haiku
with the hope that just maybe.
It blows you away.

The name is irrelevant.
The person is male.
The age is older.
The stories are true.
This blog is mine.

Old School Ipoh

One more day to go till the big day.

What big day you ask? Why, don't you know STAR is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year? The highlight of this golden celebration will be held this weekend. Where else but at the place where we lived the experience of our lifetime back in the day: The school ground of STAR, Ipoh.

Old Boys' Weekend or OBW 2007 will go down in history as the pinnacle of the 50th anniversary celebration. There have been a few events throughout the year, starting with the Majlis Pengkisahan dan Pameran STAR at Memorial Tuanku Abdul Rahman back in May. I went to see the exhibit but sorry, I don't have the pictures to prove (and blog about) it. There was a dinner held a few weeks ago but nothing could compare with OBW. This is the event we've all been waiting for. I've been looking forward to this day since 1997, when I left my beloved alma mater knowing 10 years on, we'll be celebrating STAR's Golden Jubilee.

This event represents a double celebration for Class of '97 too where we will gather for our 10th anniversary after leaving our beloved school. Never would I have ever imagined 10 years on, I would be in this position. Certainly I never envisioned myself working for the Gomen but hey, time changes people huh?

But going back to STAR is always a special event. Especially during OBW because as students back then, you always imagined yourself coming back to Tiger Lane in Ipoh with your loved ones showing your wife/daughter/grandchildren the place where you grew to be a man. I am really looking forward to this weekend so my mind this week will most probably be in Ipoh rather than here in Seremban.

Actually, I planned something earlier this year to give my contribution to this special event. I created a blog called Tales from Tiger Lane where I wanted to compile stories from my fellow Starians about what else? Life in STAR. It didn't receive the feedback that I hoped for, and add to that I really didn't spend much time updating on it anyway. But like a good Starian, I hope to keep the blog running where I will post my personal accounts and stories on STAR. Touch wood it'll continue not just for this year but as an 'extension' of Mind Blowing here. (chewah macam writer gempak je ada spin off series)

I hope everything will be great this weekend. Pray I would spend the time to write on this special event. Wajib. I'll leave you with a sample lagu cheer, which are songs that we sing during matches, usually rugby or football. Ingat 3 lions aje ke yang ada lagu cheer? This is one of my favourite actually, because its title has absolutely got nothing to do with the song. Sorta like a Nirvana song. It's called Dunlop (don't ask me why!):

Dari padang menghijau segar
Singgah di padang ini sebentar

Kami bersemangat waja

Agar trofi kami punya.


P/s: Don't forget to tune in to RTM1 (gasp!) tonight at 9.30 pm where there will be a special Forum Perdana titled "Disini Kita Bermula" jointly organised in conjunction with STAR's Golden Jubilee Celebration.
