Let The Hunt Begins...

*from my other blog at Dilla Speaks Out

original post:

So, I guess you already know about STF’s 50th year celebration, right? STF Band Alumni is organizing a Treasure Hunt as part of the celebration activities and I have managed to coax the Hubby-Boss to join in the fun.


I have to admit that I am a virgin hunter. Never done it before.. It’s one of those things that I’d just like to do and check under my "Been There Done That" list.

The date? 22 April 2006 The time? 8am to 4.30pm The start/finish line? National Science Center

The prizes are quite good too.. Rm1500 CASH + huge TESCO hamper for the first prize… They have prizes for 1st up to 10th place.


Now, how does one prepare for the hunt?

As virgin hunters, I think we just have to take it slow… Maybe we should not set our targets too high.. Aim to

1. have loads of fun

2.finish and in the running for the Best Decorated Car andBest Dressed Team prizes.

Please call this lady if you wanna join in the fun: SK Yan Hasmoni 013.342.0503

Results? We (Hubby, Me, Ewa and Kira) came in Retro. Nani, Suah, Tipote and her hubby were there as "school kids" — I personally thought they were rather cool. There were some fimiliar amateurish faces and many Master Hunters in the line up.


Took us a little while to get used to the tulips. (I foolishly thought there would be actual, physical tulips lining the roadside to guide us. Duhh!!) Got to answer some questions right, and many of them wrong! heh heh heh Made good time at the half-way point in Tesco Damansara Perdana. Met Illa waiting for her kids finish Drama class in Shah Alam and we skipped the entire Klang part and raced back to the finish line to avoid time penalties.


Essentially, we had good fun, finished the race but a little disappointed coz we didn’t win the Best Dressed Team title - but we were in the running, though! Mission completion!

The Srikandi Dinner

*from my other blog at Dilla Speaks Out

It has to be said: I had loads of fun that night… What night? 1st of April 2006. The night I got to see my friends of 18 years.. Friends from the past.. Friends from STF.. (Of course, girls.. Anuar Zain kinda had a part in all that fun .. heh heh..)


STF is celebrating its 50th year in 2006. As part of its Golden Jubilee Celebration, the alumni association; Srikandi Tun Fatimah ; had lined up a string of activities which included the Majlis Makan Malam Perdana ( and Anuar Zain) at the Sunway Lagoon Resort Hotel. I took charge and gathered some friends from my batch to attend the affair. The turnout was quite good — there were the 6 month pregnant Fara, Dr. Farhi Ain, Tina, Iza & Kynne — engineers from TNB, Petronas and Telekom respectively, "Che’ gu" Suhailiza, Lin H and yours truly at my table. On another table, quite far far away from us (they got the corporate table, you see) were Alin and the gang. The occupants of that darn-lucky-table-who-got-to-oogle-Anuar-Zain-up-close were: Alin (main sponsor seeker), Edikok, Rina, Ardena, Linda (and hubby), Fifi and another 6-month-preggie, Aske’ — I think I’ve covered everyone. It was quite a huge achievement for Batch ‘92 ‘coz there were only 5 of us in the previous year’s dinner. (Yeay!)

There were the Royal Patron, Tunku Puan Pahang and her sisters, Minister of Education and his lovely wife, ex-teachers, current teachers, other alumni representatives and loads and loads of Srikandis. Entertainment was in the form of:

1.Srikandis singing a medley of popular songs from the 50s to the present reign of King Mawi.

2. Very very young Srikandis (those who sat for their SPM in 2005) parading a fashion show of STF uniforms from the ’50s till present.

3. A.N.U.A.R Z.A.I.N

So, the agenda of the night was pretty simple: good food, great entertainment and friendly company. People were busy mingling,jejak kasih was happenning all around the ballroom, chit-chat and big hugs all around. We catched up each other’s lifes, wondered why is Fahrin seated at the table across the room (hmm???), mis-identified our Biology teacher (malu… malu….) and basically oogled at Anuar Zain some more. Quite a night, I must say…

Hmmm… Maybe we could get 3 tables for next year’s dinner.
