The home-made video screened at the function was very well produced and directed for the entertainment of the parents of both Bryan and Rowena.  The video is researched thoughtfully, well planned and scripts written from their memories to show their “secret love stories” since they first met in school eleven years ago.  They must have learnt from drama schools and produce their personal “masterpiece”.  The audience were delighted and enjoyed the video very much to learn the experience of this young couple.  Fun too!

As the wedding reception was an exclusive, private affair for guests from the family, relatives, friends and colleagues, the secret love stories re-enacted by Bryan and Rowena for our restricted audience with due respect to them.  Else its no longer a “secret” 😉

Lost and Found Friends at the Wedding Reception

Its wonderful for me to meet Ronnie’s family at the function since the last time I met them over 40 years ago.  I was then about 16 or 17 years old and I often visited their family at Jalan Tiong during school days.

The first thing they asked me:  “Where have all your hair gone …..  where’s your “crowning glory”???

To cut the long story short, I told them that the weather in Singapore these days is like a desert and its cool to be “hairless”!

My long-time friend, Kingston Goh and his wife for almost 50 years.  We are both Pioneer Generation friends.

Mrs Goh has great memories asked me whether I could remember that we were former fire victims of the Bukit Ho Swee fire in 1961 and were neighbors at Blk 9, Jalan Bukit Ho Swee “emergency flats” a few units away at the 4th storey.

Wow ….. a gem encounter with Mrs Goh.  What a pleasant surprise to help me with my memory blogs to pick up my schooldays stories and Bukit Ho Swee neighbors.  I gotta catch up with her soon.

As she had missed the Council for the Third Age activities, it is my pleasure to share with her and our heritage friends on the “50plus Expo 2014 Forum Talk” at:
