Ok, I must admit, I came from one of the notorious class back in secondary school. We had the super duper classic "ah bengs" and "ah lians" of our times - oh wait a minute, back then in the 1980s, I think it was pretty cool to be one! I wasn't "one" per se. Some of us here tried the look but failed terribly at it!
Despite our differences in pursuits having left school, the camaraderie we have when we come together every year makes our friendships unique. Geez.. it's been 23 years!
Though not all of us are that close to one another, I'm really happy that we have been there for each other one way or another. From the time we started our first job, to attending each others' weddings and celebrating the births of our children. We all have busy lives but we make it a point to "arrow" someone in the group to plan our annual gathering. I think it's a mean feat every time we gather!
It's also really awesome that our families come together to celebrate our friendship with us! We've seen each others' children grow up and many are already in their youths!
The greatest feeling I have when we meet up is that we can pick up from where we left from. That is, from school days!! And there's no doubt that it makes one feel all teenager again. And we're on the prowl searching for more long lost classmates/schoolmates to join us in the next gathering!
Someone in the group suggested an overnight retreat somewhere so that we can yak our hearts out. I'm for it! Now who is the next one to be arrowed?
Here's the perfect way to sum up our friendships!
