My Class Photos

After looking at my old photos, I manage to assemble an almost complete chronology of my students photos, from kindergarten to my university graduation.

This is my kindergarten graduation in 1985 (Methodist Kindergarten). I was 6 years old.

This photo was taken during our last year at primary school in 1991 at Methodist Primary school. I was 12 years old. This was the first time we took a public exam, the UPSR

This was taken in secondary school, Form 1 (Class 1A2, 1992). I studied in Methodist Secondary school.

Form 3 photo (Class 3A2, 1994). This is also another year we had to sit for the public exam, the PMR.

Form 4 (Class 4S3, 1995). I remember this was a hard year for most of us as we were exposed to new subjects such as additional maths, physics, chemistry and biology. We were drilled pretty hard by our teachers back then

The final year at the secondary school (Class 5S3, 1996). This was where we parted with our classmates and friends after finishing our final public exam, the SPM. I kind of sad of the prospect of leaving my secondary school as the best moments and the best friends were found here.

After secondary school, I further my study at PRIME College Miri(now obsolete and taken over by SEGi College). I did my PAD course (equivalent to A-level) here. The graduation photo was taken in 1997.

After completing the PAD, I moved on to Prime College KL to study PCD (equivalent to 1st Year University). This are my coursemates. Photo taken in 1998.

My final journey as a student took me to University of Bristol and this is the group graduation photo (for the Department of Electrical and Electronics as well as the Department of Computer Science), taken at Merchant Venturers' Building in the summer of 2000. For the record, I'm the only one from Borneo Island in this photo :) I had a lot of fond memories here as well as making new good friends here. It is my wish to visit the university again somewhere in the near future.

I would like to pay my tribute here for all my teachers and lecturers for shaping what I'm today. For my lost friends, classmates and course mates who happen to come across my blog, do give me a shout (I practically lost in touch with most of them).

So, do you able to spot me in all of these photos?
