MBS From High

Darryn Chiew climbed the stairs and took this picture.

He said:
Actually, believe it or not, the photo was taken from the top floor of the yet-to-be-completed West Wing!

Yew Zheng (the late Mr. Leong’s son) and I obtained permission from he contractor to go upstairs to take the photo. The contractor readily agreed after giving us a safety briefing, since the stairs were already built. When the new block is completed, go on to the top floor and you’ll have an excellent view of MBS, just like in that photo!

Seated from left:
Foong Kwok Chuen, Letchumi (Pala’s wife), Tan Lee Lee, Ng Pui Wan (Heng Yuen’s wife) and Wong Tuck Meng.

The two kiwis did not deserve it but were brave enough to show up for a dinner just to meet up with other MBSians. Chiang Quan has not meet Kwok Chuen for a while and made it a point to catch up on old times.

The dinner was graciously hosted by the Wongs, Tuck Meng and Choon Seng. Still the hat went round and a sum of RM1030.00 was collected.

The motley crew then held a hurried discussion and decided to contribute this sum to the MBS Centenary Building Fund.

The collection has been handed to Headmaster Mr. Wong Chee Kheon.


It was at the visit to the school before the last chicken rice eating binge that it was suggested that MBSLoop start a collection towards the school building fund. Should the sum of RM50,000 or more be collected, then a classroom would be named “MBSLoop”.

Five persons have already pledged a sum of Rm1,000.00 each to this end:

  1. Low Cheng Cheong
  2. Liew Fook Song
  3. Wan Heng Yuen
  4. Wong Choon Seng
  5. Captain Ho Fooi

In addition to the RM1,030 already paid, the fund now stands at RM6,030.00

Through Dato’ Lee Tak Lum, building fund committee chairman, a request will be made for the names of the donors to be on a plague of said new classroom.
