time really does fly!

saw my high school teachers yesterday... and suddenly i realized, "omg, i've actually left school for nearly 10 years!!!" gosh...

was walking back from my RM4-in-the-wallet lunch yesterday when i saw a bunch of school kids. their uniforms suggested them to be in the 6th form, but what caught my eye was their school tie. no mhs (m'ca high school) student will ever forget that striped purple-green tie! but what are mhs students doing in klcc? a school trip? then i spotted ms. sheow, my maths teacher! i waved like mad and excitedly went over to chat. and then i saw ms. shirley chua, my econs teacher, who grinned like she won the lottery at the sight of me. hehe...

gosh, how they have aged! streaks of grey hair n aunty looking... has it really been THAT long? when i looked that the gals in school uniforms standing around looking at us, i felt as if it was only yesterday i was wearing those uniforms, rushing to quads (mhs got more style one. instead of the oh-so-common term 'assembly', we call our daily morning bloc assemblies as 'quad', short for 'quadrangle' – a square or rectangular courtyard enclosed by building), hoping the discipline teachers won't notice my slightly loose tie, yakking the day away with my desk-mate instead of revising for the dreaded stpm, skipping house practice to run over to mahkota parade, gathering at the mee-hoon-kueh stall opposite after school... has it REALLY been that long?

then i realized... in the eyes of those school gals, i must look real old. i mean, if i were in their shoes, at age 18-19, i'd look at someone my age as old! not as in ah mah old lar... but more like the age u thought u’d take forever to reach. Oh yes, it HAS been that long... *sigh*

i can understand ur feeling, sometimes i tried not to hold back to the old days and let the past be gone, coz the sweeter the memories, the bitter u feel rite now, as we grow older. So its better to objectively look forward with full of hopes and let life shines regardless of age. ;)

hehe yw, not feeling bitter lar... just amazed how life seem to zoom past us at a blink of the eye.

but what u said is right. no point holding on to the past. stare the future in the eye and march on in full regal! (n hand out sunshades along the way, coz dun wanna blind other ppl with our 'shiny' life! haha...)
