WHAT a Great Reunion....40 years!

Even though I am absolutely zonked out with my Asian Youth Games work, I had made a promise to quickly put these memorable photos here so that everyone can access them.
What's so memorable and fantastic about this reunion?
Well...please visit my G TAHAN blogposts of February last year and you'll know why.
The date was Sat June 20, two days ago. We had managed to contact Twang Peck Ee, the leader of the 1st Singapore G Tahan Expedition and he had so graciously agreed to have

a reunion at his cosy home in the Sembawang Hills area, with us.
I rushed there after performing in public with my Ukulele at the launching of the Active Ageing Carnival 2009, on the same day, at Suntec City.
Mohkeed and Julia, 2 of the outstanding 69niners with their original PE teacher Syon.

Mohkeed and Julia...presenting the special 40th Commemorative NJC book to Balbir, their original PE teacher.

Six of the incredible and never to be forgotten 1st Singapore Tahaners in a picture scoop!
Dick Yip, Twang Peck Ee, Tng Kim Guan, Louis Hwang, Balbir Singh and
Francis Lee.

Why the thumbs up and victory sign?
It means we DID it 40 years ago and well ...we just might be crazy to do it again!
But we will look for Tahan kechil on the map and not THAT Tahan. That one time so long ago was a one off-pioneering adventure that set the trail for others to our footsteps.
