Old friends...

The Internet is truly a powerful tool to reconnect with old friends. Last week, a teacher from my primary school days, now in Perth, Australia, sent me an email. He taught me in 1970 and had a powerful impression on me. We stayed in touch through the years and would exchange Chinese New Year cards. It was after I moved to the capital in the 1980s that I lost touch with him. So it wa such a pleasant surprise to hear from him and pleased that he had been following my career and life stories all this while. I immediately put him in touch with the bunch of us from that school who are still in touch with one another.

And then, another mail came. This time from a classmate whom we had been trying to locate all these years. As far as we know, he was the only one from our batch to become a policeman, although all of us, at one point or another, yearned to be a cop. He had been transferred to various stations throughout the country and recently got posted back to PJ.

We will have a lot of catching up to do. :)
