Once again the old fogey returns to SMK Subang Utama to see her precious Interact Club and to evaluate the quality of her Interact juniors. Hehe, just kidding. I am no longer in the position to give “evaluations” lah. This time, Mun Teng and I were the oldest there. I bet next year we won’t even be called already because anyone younger than the 1989 juniors would not have known us. Sigh.
And I can still remember how to sing the Interact song. Out of tune, but nevermind.
Jade Tan, the vice president was kind enough to invite me and she asked me to pass on the invitation to the other board of directors of my year. Can, if the club was willing to pay for the president’s, vice president’s, treasurer’s, funding director’s and club service director’s flight tickets from Australia.
Nevermind, Melody, Amanda, Esther, Abby and Zhuo Yan can read about it from my blog.
Sorry, Dennis, Josh. I would have called you guys but even I was pretty lost with the who’s who of the Interact Club today so the only person you guys would’ve remembered would be Pn. Rajes. (Dennis was the vice president when I was in form1, and Joshua was the president when I was in form2. And I’ve been out of school for three years now. They’d be lost as well.)
I was pretty impressed that they finally had a proper hall to conduct the membership drive at and with pretty good sound systems as well. Even though it was open air but the vast zinc ceiling really amplified the sound.
I have a confession to make. We have always been shocked by the decision that Sook Yi became the president of the club because we’ve always believed that the future president of the Interact Club would already have been “Chosen By The Stars” when they were in form1. Meaning they were spotted and were unconciously groomed to lead the club. At least that’s what Dennis The Legend told me. But like any other organizations, politics come into play.
We’ve only known Sook Yi through her involvement in the school’s volleyball team.
But after today, I can truly say on behalf of the board of directors of my year(2002/2003) that Sook Yi was a fantastic choice as a president. The way she led the crowd and spoke with such confidence reminded me so much of Melody. And anybody who reminds me of Melody will definitely be a grand leader. Kudos to you, Sook Yi. 🙂 I think you’ve done well.
So the other seniors who turned up were MY juniors and now my wee little juniors are all seniors now. I feel so old. After the event, the juniors-who-are-seniors allowed us old fogies to accompany them for lunch at Tanjung. Kah Kit enlightened me about the fact that there will be a horny/hamsap(I think he meant Confident, Brave and Charismatic) FEMALE board of director who will kacau people basically. Apparently, for my year I am the one, after my year was Wan Qi, after that, Shwe Ying and ….. I am not sure, but I think he said Nabilah is this year’s pengacau.:) Hehehe. What kind of tradition am I setting for the club man..:P

Some tail twistings going on.
Jade was made to sing The Barney Song and I have to say, she actually made the Barney Song sound MELODIOUS. Now, that’s a pretty impossible feat, but she managed to do so. Click click click!!
Another “interact tradition”. Why so many traditions formed after my year one? They had to spell Interact with their butts.
A dance is a must for any club events.
