Zayed’s turning 6 tomorrow. Times flies real fast. I can’t believe that it’s already 6 years …
I grab this chance to write something after such a long time. I don’t remember what took me back to early primary school time. My mind started to wander about the school, my teachers, my headmistress, and my friends.
I went to St. James’ and St. Michael’s school and the headmistress was Mrs. Bowie. I remember my year 1 (Pluto) teacher was Miss Benson and my year 2 (Earth) teacher was Miss Kate Hall. I wonder how they are now. They might be in their 60s, maybe 70s.
I can place names to only a few of my friends. There was Muna, Nihawra, Johnathan, Giles … I remember Johnathan clearly because his mom was our music teacher and I learned the violin.
My dad would take me to school every morning and I walked home with my friends in the evenings. The things that my friends and I did … hahaha … I remembered there was this new chinese girl in school, a junior. We were in year 1. My friends said the girl and I look so alike, we could be sisters. One day, as we were walking home, we spotted her and her dad ahead of us. Someone gave an idea to follow them and see where they lived. Their flat was just a block or two away. We even peeked which apartment they were staying in because they had to press the bell and someone opened the door for them.
I don’t remember when, but one day, we decided to visit the chinese girl. I guess it was because we hadn’t seen her in school for quite some time. So, after school, we walked over to her place and rang the bell. Someone answered and we said we were the girl’s friends (I can’t remember her name …). Her parent let us in and we walked up to the apartment. I can remember the surprise her parents had on their faces! hahaha … they must be thinking we really had guts to come visit on our own.
*sigh* those were the times eh 😛
