On Saturday, March 31, students from SMK Anderson Ipoh’s Class of ’75 had their reunion at the Dome Restaurant, Meru Valley Golf and Country Club.
About 80 people, including teachers and students, graced the event. They were in matching collared T-shirts bearing the school crest. This group of former students came from as far as Switzerland, United States of America and Australia to attend this memorable occasion.
Before continuing with the night’s activities, they observed a moment of silence for their fellow friends who could no longer make it to the gathering.
Next was a surprise birthday celebration for their friend, Ahmad Sayuti, former Malaysian hockey goalkeeper. He was overwhelmed and nearly in tears.
They then sat down for a mouth-watering buffet of Asian and Western cuisines. Part of the selection of desserts were two boxes of Swiss chocolate from the renowned chocolate company, Lindt.
“We’re grateful to our teachers. Without them, we’ll not be what we are today. You’re the stars of tonight,” said former school captain, Ng Tin Choy, paying tribute to his teachers.
From table to table, the Andersonians went, exchanging stories, sharing jokes, enlightening their former teachers and taking selfies to capture the special moments for posterity.
All good things must come to an end. The night ended with a karaoke session. Everyone had a good time and hoped to meet again soon.
