50’s Old Boys

5th August 2008

I was summoned to dinner, a summons that cannot be disobeyed. The evening at Noble House Jalan Delima turned out to be one not to be regretted.

50’s refers to the years these senior gentlemen were in MBSKL. Four of them had since made Australia their home and was in Kuala Lumpur for a visit.

Ho Chee Wah, Cheong Kah Thong, Wan Heng Yuen, Low Wai Kong, Yap Hoy Hoong, Lim Kim Kiat, Cheah Yew, Tan Kim Hock, Chan Tuck Choy, Kan Yew Kwok, Chok Wan Tho, Chang Siew Fah, Ho Jo San

Front Row:
Chan May Fui, James Siew Kow, Leong Yee Kong, Chu Tham Sang, Teng Kuen Cheong, Liu Kwai Choong, Tay Ah Lek, Jeffrey Chan Kam Fatt, Low Kong Ming.

[Could someone please help with putting names to the ??? Low Wai Kang, Kan Yew Kwok, Cheong Kah Thong]

Among the seniors there were two Group Scout Masters, Kwai Choong and James Siew. Scouters who mentored many of us in our formative teenage years included Chu Tham Sang, Tan Kim Hock, Chang Siew Fah and Chan Tuck Choy. The other seniors were the ones we looked up to for guidance and learned from by the MSMD (monkey see monkey do) method. They are pretty good monkeys.

The youngest person there, Chee Wah was not even born when these guys left school.

  1. Awesome.

    I can still recognise some of the old buggers! But Yee Kong? I could walk right past him without recognising him!

    Mr. Wan, when are we going to have the 60s?

    Foong Kwok Chuen ..60s

    Thanks for such prompt posting to the internet. This gathering shows that the scouting brotherhood is enduring and the spirit of Baden Powell will be with us always.
