    Wan Suzynarita Wan Ahmad<>

    Hello, Someone told me about this site quite some time ago. He said my name is mentioned here. When I visited this page, oh my God, this is simply awesome my friends, my teachers, my school, they?re all here. I was a former TMGS student right from kindergarten [1975] until Form 5 [1986] before proceeding to King Edward VII for my Lower Form 6, which I stopped after 6 months. To all my beloved primary and secondary school teachers, Ms Foo, Ms Phuah, Mrs Sundram whom I dearly missed, Mrs Zainal, Ms Lim, Puan Zaharah, Ms Amirul, Ms Toh, my ever loving ustaz and ustazah, the strict and concerned Ms Satwant Kaur, my sweet BM teacher Puan Rohani whom I met couple of months ago at my daughter?s kindergarten [waiting for her grandchild now :)], my warm and caring English teacher Puan Normalina, the good looking neighbour of mine who happened to be my Chemistry teacher Mr Sum[You're always our #1, sir], the attractive Mr Ong, my wonderful Biology teacher Ms Ho, and to all of my teachers whom I have not mentioned here, I would like to express my deepest and my heartfelt gratitude for your endless efforts and hard work, for your never-ending patience in teaching me to read and write from ABC and Alif Ba Ta and most of all, thank you so much for making me a whole human being as I am today. Your contributions, big or small, truly mean a lot to me. I could not have done it without all of you. Only The Almighty can ever repay your kindness and your compassion to me. Thank you and thank you so much!!

    And to all of my primary and secondary school friends, Amelia Kartina, Joyce, Hasmyza, Roslin, Chuah Bee Ang, Mageswary, Wan Foong, Chin Yoke Fong, Chong Lu Lu, Maimunah, Feeza, Rosziliaini, Aina Zuraya and to Zeenatul - remember the night we waited for the eclipse to happen? It was in 1986, we were studying for the exams remember?, to the members of the ?Secret Service? [SS]- my very first best friend, Azleen Rubilda Zainal whom I greatly missed [Alin, do contact me at my email if you happen to come across this site], Chua Bee Leng and Nor Mardziahiza[The SS meetings that we had during recess behind the school building, God knows what we talked about!], to all the male friends whom I met in King Edward VII, my good friend, the kind hearted Khairil Amir Akhiruddin who pursued his studies in IIUM [thank you for your wonderful friendship] , Mohd Amjad, Khairul Anuar, my backdoor neighbour, Subash whom I heard studying medicine in India , Charanjit Singh and his Danish friend, Benno Jensen [ Charan, I have enjoyed the karate class so much even though I got severely injured during sparring and came limping to class the next day only to find you and Benno laughing at me :)], and many more [the list goes on and on, I don?t think I can fit the page!] The wonderful moments that we have shared during our school days, the crushes and infatuations, the fights and everything those are the sweetest and the most valuable memories that are still treasure in my mind. To all of you, thank you for coming into my life and thank you for giving me the pleasure to be part of your memories. No matter where ever you may be, May Allah blesses and bestows sheer happiness and bliss upon all of you always. ~suzy~


    Accidentally hopped into this webpage!!! Currently working in HK however never forgotten about Taiping - a quite and lovely town - I missed the food, the larut matang supermarket "seut san", "Kaka noddles"... I was from SM Sri Kota till 1990 - this website remind me of lot of sweet memories about my school years, friends - I have my most comfy life during these yrs - quick summation of me would be slack, low profile but happy. Guess life is simple yet it isn't empty... after Taiping more studies within Malaysia and Australia. Sad to say, I never met most of my friends after 1990... where have they been ? how are they doing ? To those who know me, feel free to drop me a note to say hi. Lastly, I'm glad to see so many responses from all rekindle the sweetest memories. Very amaze so many Taipingites spread thru the world and shaping the world....May all of you do well, stay healthy and happy. Also, keep this website going... Keep Taiping develop a perfect country town ! Cheerssssssssssssssssssssssss !!!

    Found this site by chance. I was Tiger from 1951 to 1959. Initially my mother & I lived in Kampong Boyan and in 1961 moved to Pokok Assam. The names of Edwardians that I remember are the Lim Ah See of Railway Station, Thuraisingam, Rajadurai, Mohan Singh(TNB, Arunasalam. The teachers remembered are Late Francis Chang, Chua Ket Hin(Maths), late Letchumanan and lastly Low Eng Leong.If anyone knows more about them, please pen me a line Best of everything to all.

    Wow...really enjoyed the site. Reading all the stories in this website really brings back the good old memories while in my schooling years. I'm born and bred in Taiping and a TMGS gal all the way from primary to secondary school. It have been almost 11 years since I left the school in 1994 (Form 5). I am currently working in KL. I still remember the teachers in TMGS...Mrs. Ong, Ms. Helen, Ms. Lim LH, Mr. Kanna, Mrs. Ng, Mr. Chua CB, Mrs. Khoo BT, Mrs. Foo. Remember when I was under Mr. Kanna for this subject 'principle of accounts', he would make us all stand up if we could not answer his questions. Each time my turn comes to answer his questions, goodness, I shiver with fear. Guess that's what makes me score all the 'A's in the subject!!! Anyway, I must thank all the teachers in TMGS for moulding me to become what I am today. Yes, I'm a full fledge accountant today. I still keep in touch with a few friends, namely Ming San, Sern-Ny, Yin Haa, Hooi Chiun, Hiew Wei, Hua Lian pals - Swee Luang, Sheue Mei, KE - James, HHH (you know who you are), etc. I've also stumbled upon loads of people from Taiping while working and it just makes me wonder how small the world is and how talented Taiping people are! (Just to name a few, Mr. Chew BK - Hua Lian, Navin - SGI, Pauline Chua - Convent, Paul Chua - SGI, Win Nee - TMGS, Ee Yen - Hua Lian). For those who remember me, do drop me a few lines and if possible, we could meet up to catch up on the good ole days. Best wishes - Chee May.


    BORN TO ROAR, Ooooh I miss those lovely moments in KE VII - 1, surely would send my sons to the same school if I'm there. Remember Ms Ong when I was forced to join 2A's Maori dance back in 1978 still got the photos, back then so scared to say no la... luckily I was given the male outfits, still laugh when seeing my friends playing maori girls plus with make ups, lipstick and red cheeks... ha haaa.... I've never miss to visit the school whenever back to Taiping, Old classmates who knows me or happen to own the photos of the maoris, do contact me okay, bye E PA PA WA A RE TA TO A MANI, KA TO A MANI, bla bla

    First of all, thanks a lot for the person who created this website. Bumped into it while surfing for other sources. I was in King Edward primary school .... moved to King Edward secondary school from 1982 - 86. When I was in primary, there was my football coach ?Narajan Singh? used to call me ?Harimau mandi? just becoz I was the only person who answered him that the harimau normally take their bath every morning. Still got that name till now. Moved to secondary, I got the opportunity to meet Pak Long, Pak Sajad and Pak Moen Skymmar. Involved with football team and Rugger team.. Mr Jayapalan and Pak Yu, still fresh in memory. Now I?m teaching in one of the secondary school in Perlis. Missed those old days.. To Pak and Mak Yau who taught me english and science,,, missed u soo much. Get in touch to those who really got hooked to me

    TYVM to the creator(s) of this site. Been trying to re-new ties with old friends now that I'm 54 yrs old, well almost. Am looking for old friends from school too. I joined KE VII in 1961 (Std 4) and left after failing my HSC badly in 1970. In 1971 I was a temporary teacher in SGI, teaching Forms 3 - 5. Hope to communicate with anyone who still remember me - I was rather quiet though I was quite active in drama, debating and elocution. In 1964, the late Long Heng Hua (Pak Long) took over from Bion Dury and I witnessed my 1st public caning. 1965 was the diamond jubilee year and the song "King Edwards will live forever for as long as the Taiping Hill stands......Magni Nominis Umbra" was introduced. If I'm not mistaken, it was composed by the father of my classmate, Yeoh Beng Keat. In 1966, Nadasapillai & I were caught looking furtively at our answer books during a quiz, and Pak Long invited us to his room for 1 roti panjang each. the next day I was annointed School Prefect - among the few from Form 3. Many other sweet memories, will share the next time. In TMGS then my friends were Puteh Aishah & gang. I'm now retired from Shell Co and am now a full-time, freelance translator.

    Found this fascinating site by simply searching for "St George's Institution". I was in SGI from 1960 - 1969 (1969-1970 in SMI). Now living in Perth, Australia. My recollections of Taiping are mainly good - nostalgic is pretty accurate. Teachers as dedicated as those who taught us are hard to come by these days...the late Fr James Saw, Bro Denis (Denis Doss), the late Bro Christopher Ng, Bro John, the late Ng Beng Por, Patrick Teoh, Thomas Sant Singh, Albert Joseph, the late Ooi Chek Huat, the late Bro Fabian, the late Simon Choong, Ong Ah Guan, Vincent Soo and many many more. Chokes me just to think about them. Great guys. I used to play in a band called "Genesis" with Yeoh Hooi San, Ngan Kin Sing and Jossie Thomas. Jossie is of course still pursuing a career he loves and is acknowledged as one of Malaysia's finest guitarists. Hooi San is in Perth but I have lost touch with Kin Sing. I believe he is in KL. I would like to hear from anyone who knew me.With kind regards Kuang Yam

    Hello! firstly I would like to thank Kayes for the wonderful webpage.Ex-Convent - left school in the year of 1982. Whew..more than 20 years!!But it doesn't feel that long...I can still remember the smell of the food in the canteen! The mee rebus is the best!! couldn't find the same exquisite taste ever!!Hihi I can still remember the morning assembly, the rushed to canteen during recess also again the rushed home, of course after school. After form 3, I never bothered to rush home (cycled to school),instead we just hang out and talk! Being a girl back than I don't hv much freedom so school was everything to me. To those who knew me, please email me, probably we could catch up for the long lost years....Miss all the teachers and all my friends.

    I had a fabulous time at Convent Klian Pau Primary School in 1987. Five years after that I was in SRK Convent Kota. Who can forget Ms Foo (fierce)? Or Mrs Ravi (also fierce). I wonder if the small dental clinic is still at where it was. I spent the next five years from 1993 - 1997 at SMK Sri Kota. People used to say that it was a notorious school. Guess that you cannot judge a book by its' cover. My teacher used to tell me, it is not which school you are in, it is how you work yourself to your dream. I had made many great friends during my time in Sri Kota. I am grateful that I still have them now. I give three cheers to the first ever girl softball team (1995 - 1997) of Sri Kota, we did a super magnificent job (Remember how we won, forget how we lost!)To my two friends who had to answer to God, you'll always be remembered. If by any chanceof my old friends read this, do email me.

    How can I forget my KE, the biggest school in Taiping. Class of '87. And being a kampung boy from Batu Kurau, it was a humbling experience schooling in arguably THE public school in Perak. Went to US and got a degree. Came back and work for MNC in KL and for the past few years, have been living out of a suitcase. Having spent 1/3 of my life overseas, reading my fellow Edwardian's nostalgic KE experiences brings me down the memory lanes. There were many nicknames for the teachers but if you wanna know who's the famous teacher in KE, easy! just visit the boys' toilet. Very artistic this KE boys :)

    Ahmad Fithrie Ahmad Tajalie<>

    Going thru all the response makes me wanna write everything about Taiping especially my days at school. Well, i'm born & bred in Taiping(Tepen). start my school @ Tabika Kemas Tmn Kamunting Jaya (1984) then rest for 1 year before going to SRK St. George (1) (1986-1991).

    Assalamualaikum, I'm one of the Edwardian, and enjoyed my youth in the small town called Taiping. I was an Edwardian batch 1983-1993. I played hockey for King Edward VII, and yes still playing occasionally now. Magni Nominis Umbra, the majority in my familes are O.E so I grew up listening to them talking about Pak Long, Junjung and et.c. Funny but when I studied there, i experienced a lot of nostalgic moments. Fun, exciting, sad, thrilling and awesome moments! Being caught by the discipline teacher, ran from the prefects and teachers..cheating ..and yes it was FUN!!! Well I was born with an identical twin brother, so we were always having fun and all, and being thenaughty boys we sure experienced a lot of ups and downs. Strange but our close friend is from St. George and he is still our close pal,Tee. Out third twin brother actually... Now all of us stayed around K.L and we do keep in touch and occasionally about the past and move on with our current life. Last but not least, we do miss the place. As once in a blue moon , we'll be back, taste our favourite food and drinks..combat, Bismillah, laksa Irene, and rojak pasembur ..sedap...last but not least,Once a Tiger always a Tiger...

    Looking back at those old days- in Convent and later in KE VII,full with unforgetable memories. Many things and secrets were shared about our techers in schools and that makes schooling full with joy and laughter.Knowing rugby boys as classmate during my form 6 in KE really trigger my interest to stay longer in KE and the saying " part-time students, full time rugby player" will always stay in my memory each time I look at my old classroom in KE when I have the chance to go back to Taiping. Fellow friends and teachers- I really miss all of you and the old days we shared in Convent and KE.

    Hasnul Hasrin Mohd Hasnan<>

    to all my good friend in St George yr 1987-1991 do e-mail me we have a lot of memories to share and i think we should get together for a reunion. and not forgotten to all my teacher Mr Patrick Teoh, Mr Francis Ho, Bro Charles and others thank u for everything.

    I'm a former student of SMK Convent, Taiping. Now I'm studying in UUM and going to graduate in September. It was great studying in Convent. I'm proud to be a Convent girl. Even now, whenever people ask me which school were you in, I will answer with no doubt "I am a Convent girl". To all the teachers in Convent especially my Modern Maths teacher, Mrs. Yeoh and my Science teacher, Mrs. Soh, thank you for everything that you've taught me. Who I am now, I owe it to you all. To all my classmates in 5VT1 (1999), it's a great pleasure to know you all. I will always remember those crazy stuff we did at then. To Kwee Phing, Gini, Komala, Shahila...miss you all so much. Hope to see you all someday.

    Found this site by chance. Was browsing the net for other info but ended up with this cool website of my beloved Taiping. I was born in Taiping (in 1974) parents are still living in Taiping, in Kg. Jambu to be exact, and I always balik kampung every month. I went to Convent school from Std 1 up to Form 5. Left after Form 5 in 1991 to further study and now I'm working in KL. Funny thing is..I'm married to an ex-KE boy...what a small world eh!! My inlaws are staying in Changkat Jering and I got 3 sis inlaw also ex-Convent girls. Well..I've been scrolling through the messages and can't seem to spot any familiar names. Especially those who finished Form 5 at SM Convent in 1991, in particular those from 4 Science 1 and 5 Sc 1...Swee Hoon, Carolyn Loo, Adelyn, Diana & Joanna Ong, Yoke Moi,etc. If anyone knows where they are right now, kindly inform them that I'm looking for my long lost friends.Chow!


    Hello everyone...Born in 1972. Primary at SRK ST George 1 from 1979 to 1984. The only thing I always remember is the MEE Rebus at canteen. Until now I can't find the similiar taste. Wonder who were the canteen operators. Hehehe.

    Aminuddin Kamaluddin<>

    I was in S.R.J.K. St. George (I) Taiping from 1973 to 1977. I was then in S.M.J.K. St. George from 1978 to 1980. I was the top student of the school for S.R.P. 1980, but I did not do too well in life after that. In 1981 I transferred to another school in Kuala Lumpur. My best friends were Suresh Kumar, Ong Heng Aik & Ong Cheng Hock. I was also a Karate Club member since primary school & was a Brown 1 Belt holder in Goshin Ryu Karate (I was not promoted to Black Belt because I was a skinny & puny little kid then). Anyone who remembers me, please e-mail me soon. I am now staying in Rawang, Selangor & I really miss those good old days in the school. Anyway, I am now 40 years old & unemployed. I have an elder brother, i.e. Amiruddin Kamaluddin. He was in Standard 6 when I was in Standard 2 (year 1973). He subsequently left for further studies in the U.K. I have 2 elder sisters i.e. Mazlifah and Zuraidah. I think they did their Lower 6 at Sekolah Menengah St. George for a while before going to the U.K. for further studies too. They were at Sekolah Convent Taiping. Our late grandmother's house was also near there i.e. at 227 Kota Road, Taiping. I have not been to Taiping since 1983 (until today i.e. 2005). I really miss those good old days especially at school where there was intense rivalry among several of us to be the top-scorer of the school. Also, I was a rather childish 15 year old kid i.e. I thought I was some kind of Superman just because I had a high-ranking in Karate i.e. just one level below Black Belt. Also, I used to share my secret studying methods with my 2 very best friends i.e. Ong Heng Aik (he also had a younger brother i.e. Ong Heng Lee) & Suresh Kumar (I think he is now a Doctor; I used to correspond with him when he was at the Kasturba Medical College in India & I was at the University of Alabama in the U.S.A.).

    Found this site by chance. It's just marvellous to hear the familiar chatter of Taipingnites again. Have been scrolling through the messages and don't seem to spot any msg from anyone who finished Form 5 at SGI in 1970, in particular those from the agriculture science class - the first of its kind in Malaysia. Where have all of them been? Hoping to meet some of them when I balik kampung for the 2005 Chinese New Year. Cheers.

    I have never known any other school but Convent Kota, Taiping. Was there from std 1 to form five. Left in 1979 and continued my studies in ITM. Its been about 20years since i left taiping, but i do go back at least once a year coz my parents and two of my sibblings are still there. Every time when im there, i took my children to town via my school. And i proudly told them that i once studied there. It was like a yearly tradition until they sort of got tired of it and said,,.. please, not again... And of course i told them over and over again how we put up a show at the old folks home near the railway station, ... we danced Le Freak, .. Daddy cool, .... we called ourselves The Pink Ladies. Oh my, .... the age of innocence.... For those who still remember me, pls do drop a line or two. Take care.

    Hi, I was studying in CHIJ Aulong from 1963 to 68 and my secondary was in the Main CHIJ, from 1969 to 1971 before continuing my From 4 & 5 in Ipoh. I should be from the Class of 73 if I hadn't left. So those of you, whether male or female, who remembers me, please do write. I would love to hear from you. Certainly been ages since I left Taiping, but Taiping hasn't left me, it still occupies a place in my heart, and will, forever. Love you all!

    Redzuan bin Ishak<>

    Hello and I'm Redzuan bin Ishak. I left KE VII in 1969, when Pak Long was still in charged. During that time our school was at its peak in most of the games. I remember when we went to Penang Free School we the TIGERS trounced the LIONS 50 goals to nothing. IF u Know "JUNJONG" is the most unpopular teacher of all time. Anyway I'll never ever forget K.E. VII and the Taiping Lake Garden(considered to be the most beautiful Manmade lake garden in the country).

    Jean Nee<>

    Indeed this is a great site! Well done! I'm from Class '96 of SM CONVENT!! Heaps of memories and experiences! Peng Lin and Jeanne has summed up most of the few key events that happened!! there's more.. I think if we actually get to do our reunion (i mean seriously where everyone is back) we'll take weeks to finish talking & updating each other.. In the meantime, keep in touch guys!

    Is this web page un popular to the Hua Lian boys and girls, so few of them, could it be the School's picture is left out or Hua lian boys and girl are born to be shy...haha. I sutdied in Hua lian from Std 1 till Form 5(1970) used to mixed around with some KE and SGI boys, of course the TMGS girls too during my seconday school days. left Taiping in the year 1972, a S'poren today. Please write to me for those who knows me as Yee Teik Meng(especially those long lost friends)and those who want to know more about me.


    Our primary school was in Temple Street behind the Lido cinema. in 1965 we went to secondary school, we were in the aulong hualian for 2 years then we came to the newly completed Hualian Secondary study Form 5 till 1969. i hope to find back my school mates from this period - 1957-1969. email me at:


    I graduated from hua lian in year 1989. writing this message made me realised i have graduated more than 15 years. 15 years is not a small number. anyway, i am indeed surprised and delighted to see this website. happy that those originated from taiping are still very much into our hometown tho we are now all over the world. that shows taiping has given us so much of sweet memories. bravo for this effort and wish to see more fantastic news from this website.

    Hail, hail Alma Mater, Hail to SGI! I engraved my footsteps on the treshold of from Stnd 1 right up to Form 6(2002). I have always been glad to have been a son of St. George`s. Well, the person I am today has lots to say about the nurture the school bestowed on me. Thanks to SgI for helping me thrive in education and other aspects of life. I believe the only way I can pay tribute to my Alma Mater is by continuing to share the wonders I have embraced in my childhood to others, so that the spirit of SGI may continue to live in others. Thanks SGI.

    I am Taiping born and spent the full 6 years (1971 to 1976) at KE 1. I left Taiping for a short while to study at 2 different secondary schools (SM Izzuddin Shah, Ipoh and SM Clifford K.Kangsar) but came back to KE VII where I took my SPM in 1981. I left Malaysia to pursue my university Education in the USA in 1982 and only came back in 1988 after completing my Masters Degree. I remember my schooldays very well and will always try to pass by both KE Primary and Secondary every time I visit my mum and dad in Pokok Assam, for a little bit of nostalgia. Those who still remember me, ( aka "steward" at izzuddin ipoh, the boy who got kicked out of the school hostel at Clifford KK, and the guy with the green bicycle and known as JAA in KE VII) do keep in touch. I would like to thank all my former teachers who happen to be browsing this website, from the bottom of my heart, and to all friends who have helped make life more colorful.

    Rohani Parkash Abdullah<>

    Every one of my family, girls (Form 6 only) and boys studied at KEVII under Long Heng Hua. They were Ranjit,Harjit,Pritam, Avtar,Zarun,Manjeet and myself Parkash. KEVII had a traditional rivalry with St. Georges Sec. and until 1973, only TMGS girls went to KEVII for their Form 6. BUT it changed in 1973 when we from the Convent Sec. and ST. Georges Sec were sent to KEVII for form 6 and TMGS were sent somewhere else. Man, it was big time friction in that school for 2 years 1973 and 1974. The St. Georges guys were rebellious (which was out of character for them). But eventually Junjung and Mr. Long were able to bring things to order. KEVII was a good school. I hope its still the top. I liked Mr. Long a lot as he was careful to contact parents and had a good relationship with parents and teachers alike.

    I was an Edwardian from 1977 to 1979. Ipoh born, but went schooling at King Edward VII, Taiping. So many fond memories i had while there. In 1999, I went back to the school by myself to do recollection of memories, exactly 20 yrs after i last seen the school. Sports, especially rugby was hugely popular at that time, MCKK and STAR was no match to us those days. Visits by Chulalongkorn and Vajiravudh of Thailand was a regular affair. Oh those days, never will i ever forget.

    Left SGI in the 60s and presently residing in Subang Jaya. I would be glad if any OG could help me locate another OG by the name of Henry Foon Kwai Foon who I think is residing in Singapore. He has a brother by the name of Foon Kwai Leng. I know I can depend on Georgians.

    Ahmad Azwan b. Mat Taridi<>

    Hello all, I was a student at KE I between 1971-1976. I was fortunate enough to have my own Dad(Cikgu Taridi) as my teacher (I think it was in Std 3). I can fondly remember those big tree roots that we use as a "sepak takraw" net during recess. And, yes who could forget the tuck-shop mee goreng and the delicious kacang-putih from the nice kacang-putih man. Those were the days... I now reside in the US and has been here for almost 20 yrs. About 6 years ago I took my family to Taiping to visit some relative and manage to squeeze some time to visit good old KE. It was a great moment to see my then 2 yr old son climb around the same tree-roots and playing in the same field I did many years back when I was a child. Strangely enough the field looks a lot smaller than what I remembered...

    Daniel Ho Kim Leong<>

    Hi to all fellow georgians, I graduated from SGI on 1996. Currently, i'm doing Quantity Surveying at Gamuda Berhad. Thinking of the old days at SGI is great. During that era, basketball is like the coolest thing that ever happened. I think i overspend most of my freetime at the basketball court during high school. But ends up i don't get selected for the school team. But is ok, i just love the game. I would like to take this opportunity to say Thank you to all the teachers that teaches me from Form 1A5 up to 5VT3, especially the headmistress Puan Sujatha & Mr. Phoon Chong Chee. Then i would like to say sorry to Renubalan, Jaya Sri Ganesh, Sashekumar & Kenneth Peh of 5VT3. I know i did gave you guys some hard time last time. Hope you guys will forgive me. Georgian for Life.

    ed dartford<>

    My father, Gerald P Dartford served as headmaster many years ago. I typed "Taiping" into the Google search engine to test it, and got an almost instantaneous response. Trying to make the search job more difficult, I added "school". These are very nice photos of the school. It looks much as I remember it. I hope that all people in Malaysia realize that people who worked in the colonial government, particularly in education, have fond memories of your country. We wish you every success, and we take some pride in your accomplishments.

    Manuel Lawrence aka Sithar<>

    Loved every minute of it. Was in SGI from 1980 to 1984 and was a school goalkeeper from 1983 to 1984. My fave teachers were Mr Rama and that teacher who always wore that green and white uniform who later fell in love with that dashing Brother Charles. Talk about forbiden love!Great buddies were Sani Majid, Andrew Arul, Mohan, Kumar Gary,Anthony Paul, David Leslie, Low Chuen Cheong, Pe Teik, Joseph Gerard.SO guys from class of 84 5A1 drop me a line!

    Teoh Thiam Beng<>

    I'm from the class of 96. I studied in St George from Primary 1 all the way to Form 6, 13 memorable years. I?m most proud to be a Georgian. Looking back, schooling time is the best time of my life. For those of you, who are still studying, enjoy every single moment of it coz once u are out in the working world you will wish that you are still in school. Does anyone knows whether Bro. Charles is still in Penang ? Someone told me he is at St Xavier in Penang.

    Great to see so many ex-Georgians sharing their past experiences here. I'm in upper six this year, so I do not exactly qualify as an ex-Georgian, but rather a current one. Anyway I saw many of your messages about wanting to know about your former teachers' whereabouts. Here's some info on some of them:
    Mr Patrick Teoh - Retired in 1998. Never got to meet him though, being in Form 1 then Mr Gee Hoo Chai - recently retired, 29 February 2004. Was my KH teacher in Form 3 Bro Matt - Transferred to St Michael. Not sure of the year though, or whether he's still teaching or not. Pn Sujatha - retired in 2002. Mr Wong Pak Kiong - retired in 2001 Mr Oon & Mrs Chan Din Kow - still teaching If anyone wants to know more about their former teachers from the 80s or 90s, please do not hesitate to contact me. Perhaps I can dig out some info on them. Old copies of school magazines also stored at the archives room. Glad to see so many old Georgians still remember the great times they had in SGI. "Sons of St George's, Valiant and True!"

    Khairuddin Wahidudin<>

    I'm a true & true Edwardian. I was at KE2 from 1964-1969. Either you are KE1 or KE2 but KE2 is always the best!in sports I mean. I played hockey, football and athletics. Shamsuddin Sharif was my friend in high jumping. I wonder where Loo Yuet Wah is, he is my rival in the 110m hurdles.Mrs. Gomez and Miss Khoo was my form teacher as far as I remember and Mr.B.A. Gomez was the headmaster. Then I went in KE Secondary from 1970-1976. Yes remember Junjung, Pak Long, Abang Cartoon and the fiercest Maths teacher on the planet earth Mr. Rahmat Ali. During the Maths lesson I tell you everybody were scared where nobody goes to the loo. I guess when you get older, you will always remeber. I was in Keir (that's green)house and Chikgu Fadzil was the housemaster. When I was in Form Four the Education introduced the dreadful science subject called Nuffield Science. The supposedly to be the science that focussed on more on practical than theory, what a subject. The unfortunate thing is my ! class was the chosen one. Pak Long was the headmaster. Some of my form teachers are Chikgu Azwa, Mr. Cheah, Ahmad Tajuddin, Francis Chang. Some of my classmates are Omar Zambri, Roslan Yahaya, Adi Maimun, Abdul Rahim, Murugiah, Solomon, Wan Hon Kong, Ang Eng Tai, Lim Kah Huat, Hilmi, Erman, Nor Azham,Ong Thiem Heng, Gan Boon Teong, Kamarul Baharin. I wish I could remember all of them. I won the sportsman of the year in 1976 (Victor Lodurum)and was in the Gymnastic squad. I did my form six in 1975 and 1976.I am now living in the UK since 1990 married and have 3 kids. So if anyone know me drop me a line.

    Lawrence Koong<>

    Howdy, some of you might remember me as the "Johnny Come Lately" who spent less than two years (81-82) at Georgie. Having escaped to Taylor's in 83, I trotted around to Adelaide, Sydney, London and finally home sweet home. Keying this at my office in the cowboy-town of Cyberjaya, I can't help but reminisce of the good-ole-days in Taiping. I'm glad to see some familiar names being mentioned here like Looi Teck Kheong and Maizurah Abdullah. Let's meet up at Si San or mail me

    I was in Convent Kota Primary from 1976 till 1981 and in Convent Sec from '82 till '86, in SGI in '87 and '88. School days were the best times of my life. I never can find the shiok 20 cents nasi lemak sold in Convent canteen ever again.

    Andrew Anthony Pillai aka Andy Avalon<>

    I was a student in SGI(1970 was my last year).My daughter told me about this page & she told me that i could keep in touch with my old pals.Just to let my pals know that if you woul like to keep in touch with me,you could email her address or write to me at Q9,Jalan Pokok Assam 34000,Taiping,Perak. Thats all.

    Bee Lee<>

    I left SM Convent Kota in 1987 and I have lost touch with almost all my schoolmates. At that time, we only kept addresses. We didn't have any e-mail addresses so it's rather difficult to keep in touch. I hope to find my lost friends soon.

    Hi guys,im hail and left SMKE on 1992 im very proud to be Edwardian-a tiger and i had so many friends at K.E like Shahrul Pancut,Gagak,Belatuk,Razak al all to my friends football player for KE and u all know me just email to me.

    the best thing to start off the new yr is to hear about this website from a fellow taipingite over dinner at my place in Melbourne, Australia. I was a KE donkey right thru from Primary to Secondary schools hailing from Pokok Assam-the best village in Tpg.! I've always been proud to be an Edwardian-a tiger. There are lots of pleasant memories of my days spent there. I'm surprised that not many of my peers have responded to this website. During my days at KE had chap junjong, abang soh, bulldog & a host of other nicknames for our teachers. Rugby matches were often exciting & full of drama especially when we played against the Malay College & Anderson School of Ipoh. I remember the time we cycled to KK to support our school team against Malay College. I became a teacher & was a trainee in Hwa Lian Secondary School between 1966 & 1967. I can still remember a bright syt I taught there - Peh Suat Ching. Wherever u are, it would be great to hear from u. To all my school friends & Pokok Assam 'gang' it would be refreshing to hear fr u all. Hey Zoomers where r u all? What about 'the young ones' our rival in Pokok Assam - hey guys we're old ones already ! Cheers !

    Mah Tze Chiang<>

    Hi guys and gals.... it's great to find this site about Taiping schools..brings back fond memories the way the postings go on about the teachers and life in Taiping. Hope everyone is going great guns and finding their own niche in this big world of ours! Was in KE in the 1970's.

    Hi! How many years is that have passed by.Maybe the water that has passed under the Kota Bridge would be able to fill up 10 oceans or more. Thats how long it seems to be that I have contacted my Alma Mater and my bunch of naughty ,on thego plucky friends and classmates. Hi, Im a Georgian from the great class of 1969.Came across this website while scouting around for old georgian friends.Remember Brother Peter.Wonder where he is now.Very222 strict in class.Add Maths.One of the sharpest minds in school.Where~s Brother Denis?Met Sameul Ong the other day,he's now a Cardiologist.Operated on Dr Mahatiir,when he had that chest op. Anyone came across VICTOR Lim? History,Geography,maths,English,that guy could handle everything. And has anyone heard seen or heard where OUR artmaster has gone to.Mr.Gerrard Perrera. Also used to be in charge of The St.Johns.AND ANY NEWS OF WHERE mR. TASS IS.Thomass Sant Singh. The one and only Geography master that there ever will be. He could draw a perfect circle with his bare hands. I guess Bro.Leo has passed on.May God bless his great soul,and give him a place in Heaven. Any news of Khoo Teng Hai,Loon Eng Seng,Sritharan,Keng Seng or Amrithalingmm? Muralidhar has already left for India years ago. Soon Heng Is with Maxis as an operations manager.Sri is with Telekom., How can we forget the fantastic outings to Burmese Pool.And the Annual Swimming Gala ,at Coronation Pool. Well Boys lets see what can I remember about those days to laugh about? Yeah.One morning Yong Yong and me went out of school on our bicycles without asking anybody's permission.We were spotted by one of the prefects who informed the head prefect.Actually at that time our Form Five Exams were already over.And we had nothing much to do.So,Yong suggested that we might as well go out and try to get some advertisemnts for our school magazine.When we returned we were immediateley asked to go to the PrncipaL'S Office. Bro Leo was there ready for us. But when we told the reason why we had left he chuckled and let us go with a smile."WHY didnt you tell this before?"And we had also got an ad from one of the shops along the road at Cathay Cinema.That was some money made for our school. Lets not also forget the friendly rivalry with the school that lies across the fence. Sometimes this rivalry becomes not so friendly. I happened to be from both schools,with the latter years being spent in SGI,but KE7 will always remain in our hearts as the one that challanges. Friend here is now a doctor,practising at Puchong.Come over if ever you are passing by. The name of the clinic is Klinik Raya.All are welcome ,especially all Taipingians.14th mile Puchong. By the way for all my business partners out ther and all ambitious businessmen,come to Puchong and try out your new ideas.It has now become Malaysia's fastest developing zone. Happy New Year 2004. And also Very Very Happy Happy Monkey New Year to all my Chinese friends out there... Can you hear the Monkey coming///Its already swishing its tail around as it breaks those branches along the wayYeoooowwwwwwwwww.Have a swinging time, then. Bye. Dr. Jack.

    Sue Huey<>

    Well, I am actually writing this! Well, I was from Convent Klian Pauh, and later SM Convent Taiping. It had been a really wonderful experience with the invasion of monkeys into our classes back in Convent Klian Pauh. Still remember the wonderful teachers that I had, including Mrs. Saw who taught me in Primary One, Puan Puteri our athletics coach, Mrs. Ng in SM Convent etc etc. They have all been great! I am now away from South East Asia, and it is really great to see this page when I think of home sometimes. I will be back soon... and probably will take a drive around Taiping again. I just want to say hi to my dear friends, Devakhi, Tze Peng, Wen Ching, Sumitra, Hooi Ping, Kheng Hui, Kevin Tan Sze Yu, Kenny & Kevin Anthony, Teik Hon, Kevin & Kenny Saw, Boon Yew, Jolene & Li Fang. Miss all of you a lot! If any of you Taiping folks are around the Bay Area from now till Aug 2004, do drop me a mail. Will be glad to drive you around here a little bit. :) Merry Christmas :)

    It was so refreshing to come across this website for former students if schools in Taiping especially KE VII where I spent my most formative years from 1934 to 1947. KE and its special breed of illustrious teachers had moulded to develop into the man I now am - a conscientious and responsible Malaysian citizen, born Chinese, can be quite Chinese but in matters which are in the interest of national security, economy, social development and integration, first and last, Malaysian and with full cognition of each and every right of our component communities to continue to be what they are born as and in hopeful trust that sooner than later our peoples will be due process of developed understanding and mutual accommodation integrate in better form and substance into a truly Malaysian nation which will be able to face better the trials and threats that accompany the forceful descent of globalisation. We had great principals like RSP Walker, JD Joseph McCorkindale and Long HH after the war but the great masters just prior and after the war were rugby stars of their time, immemorable Yeoh Teng Khoo, Utam Singh, Robert Taylor and Lim Swee Chin. They regularly with other Edwardians like Lim Poh Hai, his brother Lim Poh Bok, Devan played for the Asian All Blues. Under their tutelage the KE VII rugby team was definitely of the few top school teams in the country and in 1947, the school team of which I was privileged to be a member, never lost any match against other schools. I remember we really trounced the GES Muar who came travelling. Our other elite teachers were Selvanaygam who breathed geography, Goh XX our teacher in arts a subject in which I was never any good and great was his disappointed when best "flower" still looked like a droopy mouse. Kai Huat was most impressive and entertaining with his poetic recitations like John Gilpin. His brother Kai Bee was a more serious character. Jesudason my form teacher in Std VI in 1941 and and man of literature postwar was equally mastery and agile on the gymnastic bars. His wife the daughter of a prospierous Chinese family in Ipoh and my Pri.II teacher in 1935 was quite unique. We were educated as we played and listened to her. Mrs. Koenitz my Primary One teacher I shall always remember as she could rememember our names years and years later. Mr.Doral was and will always be a revered part of KE VII for he breathed, worked and taught KE. Che Gu Ismail my Std 4 teacher was a strict disciplinarian and my nuckles had tasted his ruler on more than one occasion.The Monerasinghe brothers were coaches for our school hockey and cricket team. One of our notable cricket games was against the Survey Department who had an array of state players. We outwitted them when we forced a draw. As an opening bat with Kamalanathan I consistently stonewalled and took on all the bowling switching sides each time until light fail! I led and was the hero for the day. Most of my classmates like Ibrahim Khan, headboy Woon Ho Thye, Oh Bak Meng, Padmanathan, Lim Swee Leong, have passed on. I would like to hear from those still alive who have been overtaken in the queque of relentless time and age and also children or families of others to know their their present dispositions. I would of course be happy to hear from the younger Tigers and other younger Taipingites if they are interested in lores of the past. Coming across this website this morning has started a train of thoughts into the past that are nostalgic and yet a lttle sad for bygone days of our happy youth in simpler times. I shall stop now for the time being this develops into a book. Looking forward for informative and mutual response. Sincerely.

    Hi,guyz!Wow!It's like being send back to the past reading all these messages.Perhaps,it's fate that I stumbled upon this site. A little about myself(not too much wait I bored you guyz to tears ;)) I graduated from SGI in 1993.It's been 10 long years.Oh,how we have aged. LOL Can't remember well too much about those days but still can feel it in my bones.I have only one thing to say to our old school,"Once a Georgian,always a Georgian". Now,I'm residing in Singapore.Met a few old friends here years back.But,lost all most of the contacts.I guess most are busy getting married and meking babies ;) Haven't really gone back home for almost 2 years.Only took a short trip now and then to attend some wedding.Sigh! So traumatising.LOL I hope those who still remember me,drop me a mail,ok! ;) Hope to hear from you guyz soon if not sooner!Cheers!

    Great site. Thanks whoever did this. I'm a Georgian - finished Form 5 in 1976. I was not a ideal student then... but I used to be a soccer player. Currently in NZ for the past 15 years where I did my degree. So thanks to the teachers who had diligently laid the foundation in me, especially Mrs Low. Heard she has retired. Wonder how thick her glasses are now.Would like to contact Leong Kok Yeow who left SGI in 1974 after his LCE for Ipoh or Butterworth. You would do me a big favour if you know him. Since being downunder for so long and craving for the Taiping laksa badly, would like a recipe.It would be nice if any old mates would like to make contact. Thanks again

    Hi, I am an Old Georgian (class of '72). A number of us are trying to generate interest for a Grand reunion in 2005 when we will all be 50(sigh!!). I would like to get in touch with not only old Georgians of that year but also old Edwardians and Convent girls who graduated (Form 5) in 1972. Please drop me a line and pass this message on to as many people as possible. Maybe we can do battle on the sports field / swimming pool again..........

    It's really nice to have foudn this site today. I am a former TMGS class of 96. Anyone know me here? I was browsing thorugh and can't find any that rings a bell. I left Taiping after 96 and is now in Singapore. Taiping is the greatest place to grow up. Remember all the rivary between Convent and TMGS, KE and SGI? And the way we roam around in our bikes. And all the jokes we played on the teaches in TMGS. Remember the water balloon Felicia threw on Puan Pepsi? and the time we make a Temp Teacher Cry? I wonder hows all the teachers like Miss Lim, Puan Pepsi, ..... and my favourite Cik Helen. :) I haven't been keeping in touch even with my former classmates and really hope anyone that thinks my name rings a bell to email me. My fond memories of Taiping goes on and on. I miss Taiping

    Indeed, fond memories just by looking at those well taken photos of Taiping. I am a Georgian of class 1985 and literally grew up in SGI!!!! Well, my parents were the canteen vendor from the 60's till early 90's. A good solid 30 years providing cheap (some time free) and good food to thousands of students. Hope to catch up with all the SOONs from class of 85 - where are you guys/gals????

    Hey...this is cool! I'm a true blue Georgian! What great memories of the school I have. Great teachers, wonderful classmates and perfect study environment! I don't think I could have asked for more.

    Boon Sooi Teoh<>

    Good to bring back those nostalgic days of the alma mater, a great school! A true Edwardian attended school from 1957-1967. Our mind is so powerful that we can still remember the very first and few last days of our attendance in both the old and the new building of K.E VII School, the class rooms, the teachers but strangely not all the old classmates! Alas in our heart we will remember the good and bad days we all shared before! Thanks to all the teachers and staff who have had given me and other pupils their best guidance, care and for their dedication to see each and everyone excell and achieve something in life. It also brings back the torturous day of training with Chegu Isa & Khir when I represented the school in rugby union U15 and then to being one of the 4 players to be awarded 'School Colours' in 1967. Till this day I am still very passionate with the sport and also keen to know how the Tigers fare in their games. What can we say and not bring about poor late Pa Long??... No long hairs (remember the barber zipping away on the school corridor), No red marks on report card, proper attire at all times; badges, socks ties, absent in meetings for any clubs all came with a warning or whack on the backside. It is a no nonscence regine of the '60s & probably '70s! But in hind side it all meant to be for our own good character building! I am looking forward to get all those memories back from classmates of 1967-form 5. for a reunion one day. Email Tigers!

    I was from SM Sri Kota in Kpg.Boyan.From 1986 to 1987 there was the only girl class in this school.Those girls were very smart and I am one of them.I remember our form teacher was Cikgu Rohani.She was a nice and a friendly teacher.I'll never forget why our class never got the cleanest or dirtiest class award in school.And Cikgu Rohani used to say we should get the cleanest class because we are the only one girl class in the whole school.But......never.Anyone out there from SM Sri Kota still remember this class?I will visit my school again in my next trip back to Taiping.I don't know when....because I am too far away in Austria.But I will...

    Great site! Lots of wonderful memories came flooding back, especially when reading all those messages in this section. What can I say, those 11 years spent in Convent from 1987 right up to 1996 was simply awesome. Puan Rubiah, Puan Ramlah,Mrs. Nanjit, Puan Jamaiah, Mrs. Tan Tat Hock, Mrs. Ravi, Mrs. Rajan, Puan Lily Willin Lee, the unforgettable Miss Foo Kon Tai - these are some of the teachers from Convent Kota that have made an impact. The friendly kacang putih uncle, Mary Anne's uncle. Back then, frozen syrup sticks (the one in long, clear plastics) for 10 sen were everyone's fav. From SMC, there's Mr. Ooi, Mrs. Chuah Teong Ping, Mr. Tnew, Mr. Voon, Mrs. Shirley Ong, Mrs. Yeoh Sek Say, Puan Fakhitah, Mrs. Chuah Yoo Sen, Mr. Tan, Puan Long Kamariah, Puan Narimah. I'll never forget how my class 1C/2K1 always got the Kelas Terbising 'award' and Kelas Terkotor sometimes, without fail every Friday. And what else, Encik Yusof will make us run the padang, or it would be a ritual! of 'bangun, duduk, bangun, duduk' before he started teaching. When it comes to Form 3, there's the unforgettable Mr. Cham, discipline teacher-cum-motivator, making us sing Kau Boleh after recess everyday! Do-Re-Mi's class(Pendidikan Moral in Form 3K2), where almost every lesson is spent with us students coming up with lakonan, and more lakonan (to entertain her). Remember Teacher's Day in 1994, Mr. Khoo Boo Tong and Mr. Koo Eng Tong chased Mei Har and another girl (couldn't remember who) round the school field with orange cordial in their hands, (Puan Normah wasn't around that day!) and everyone ended up soaking wet that day!!! 4 Sc 2 and 5 Sc. 2, I had my wonderful, crazy partner, Wai Fun to put up with my mood swings, and I with hers! And the infectious laughter... Sumi and Ah Peen, sitting near you people was fun! How we used to sneak kacang putih to Physics lab after recess, the fun we had conducting the landasan troli experiment, when V. Lee proceeded to shake the frog!'s leg before she started dissecting it! People like Shelley, Heong Lean, Lydia, Wai Ying, Ying Mei, Chui Har, Guan Im, Connie, glad we're still in touch now. Lip Cheak, Ee Laine and Wai Fun, remember the seating rotations we did in class, and all the toasts we made when drinking water! Great time we had, with crazy, crazy classmates, and the outing we had (don't remember the name, Lata something, near an army barracks opposite Taman Lake View). Mei Ann, you took Chen Joo's Coke and hid it in the pool, and she couldn't find it! I could go on and on and on, don't know when I'll ever finish. Thanks for creating this site - it's a gift for the people of Taiping! I'll be BACK someday - for good...

    Bro Cprian's Lost Patrol - I was one of them. He was an Irish red head, a little blond with reeely white skin! But a real La Sallian Brother and an elder brother to me. We'd trekked up Maxwell's early in the morning to reach the trig point. Somehow (not by chance!) we lost our bearings, spent the night wet wet wet with leecches for company and, like the proverbial bear who went over the mountain, crossed over to the other side of the Keledang range, to see what we could(nt) see! because we were quite ignorant of our geography - oops sorry Sant Singh!

    I see, this page is at the moment dominated by folks from the `Western-hemisphere' of Taiping schools...SGI, Convent, KE (that's what we kids from Hua Lian used to called King Edward school). I came from the notorious Hua Lian in Lake Gardens, where kids were smart and good in arts they made school year books that looked like expensive glossy `Tatler' magazines but badass enough to beat up the headmaster...remember the student who hit the principal with a slipper? Anyway, I wonder who out there knows about this site...heck, who is the moderator here? Is there one? How about starting a guest-book for folks to contact one another? Oh, I work in PJ now, I'm active in the KL performing arts, in a smallish way...aside from work that pays the rent. I'm also involved in community work, this is in a way to make up the lost years that I DID NOT spend in the Rotaract Club, I thought they were bunch of smart-ass snobs...hahaha.

    Loh Siew Tee<>

    Even though I left SGI in 1971 after Form 3 , I still remember fondly of my time there. I always wonder what happen to a lot of my classmates?

Look forward to be in touch with allmy long lost contacts. Cheers!

    I remember King Edward the VII school when I enrolled in 1967 with my mom to see Mr Long Heng Hua - it was a cold and huge room. Mr Long was just going through his "cane" business with one of the students. It was a scary feeling for me. I am proud and glad I was in King Edward VII for I met the "teacher of my life" that touches me and thought me all I know not from her classes but from what she knows of me. She thought me how to sing, how to play, how to "fly", how to swim, how to save, how to write, how to see, how and what to say - its all in me - in our minds. No doubt I was sent out of her classes but without her I would never have been among her top English student for the class of 1970 and would never have been me! M/s Leow Kam Fong, linguistic honours, I honour her and her being - COSMOTOTS will live forever!

    I studied at SGI from 1952-1959. I am currently residing in JB with my family. I have very fond memories of my days at SGI and also life in Taiping.I used to reside in Pokok Assam. I would love to hear from Tan Sek Hoon, Francis Hor,Dr Gurunathan and A. Sivaraman. Even if it's their family or friends, i would still like to know about their whereabouts and I truly appreciate any help at all. It has been a long time since I heard of Taiping and I must thank you, Kayes, for this wonderful site.

    Well, what can I say about this site? It's simply wonderful! Finally, someone has done a great job in bringing back the old memories for all Taipingites! Having graduated from SGI back in 1992 (form six), I have been working in many other Taipingites and ex-school mates. Old school time memories, sweet, sour, happy, bitter etc keep flashing on my mind. The moment when we enjoyed our basketball session with Mr Ong (coach), canning by teachers, sharing jokes with the likes of Mr Onn, Mr Wong and many more, having our "kebun" session, playing football on the field, bullied by some seniors....well, it's all now a wonderful memories. To my lost touch friends like Wong Yee Leong, Beh Chin Huat, Sham, Choon Siang, Kah Wai, Desmond, Yap Pi Huat, Kenneth Tan and all the rest of the "batangs", hope you all are well and if you all happen to read this message, please contact me thru the above e-mail address.

    I am an old Georgian. Now I am 56 yrs. and I am working as a biochemist in one of the private hospitals in Penang. During my days Rev. Bro. Phillip was the principal and Bros like Bro Cypirian, Bro Alexander, Bro James, Master Joe Fernandez, master Chong and so many others. The days were really wonderful and remarkable. Since 1966 I have not been to the school. I still remember when I was in form one under Bro Cypirian we called him him the golden hair we played hockey. I wonder if they are still around some where. I know Bro Phillip has passed away. Anyway to those of you out there, keep up the good name and good work of our school.

    Aiya, after all these years I still remember about SGI. The best thing about SGI is the canteen food. Last time when Ah Yee was the vendor, macam macam we can eat and cheap and sedap. From the popiah-chee, the chilli oil char mee, the mee rebus, to the lengkong and ong-lai chui, wah see peh ho chiak! About Taiping, I very seldom go there already. I still go Taiping once a while to see those new Ah Beng Ah Seng and Ah Hua Ah Lian in town. Last time they are not there one but I think they're new immigrant from Sipatang, Tampulok or Selama one lah. In case you know me, drop me a mail lah, I think I know Kok Kun in Intel.

    Hi, Can anyone rememeber me. The days of our lives will live on forever in our hearts. My dad was famous as nickname "umpai Lee" (detective Lee in cantonese). We were all over Taiping on bicycles, catching iken kelly in shitty drains, peacock fish, chasing kites, spiders, swimming at burmese pool, hye lai and other pool (can't remember one near Aun Say Garden). Had many memoirs, a bottle of coke is luxury those days, when we can afford ABC and Tau chiu. There were regulars of us at that time: Mamak Azmi, Old Goats Hearts (Loh Yeong Sum), Hassan, Wei Sin, SAw Swee Hock, .......and myself. There were rival groups like "survival"...Mai Lee, Ean Hooi (many people were after his two sisters), Beng Chi and others that I picture the face but not their names. Pak Long's cane was untolerable but no one can match with double wipe single stroke by Geography teacher "Lee" - a bloody heavy smoker and ask one of us to keep an eye at the door. Abang katun still conducting the school song and the negara ku. MANY < many < moments !!!!!!!god bless all!

    Muzaffar Mohamed<>

    Attended KE VII Primary from 1968 - 1973.My Standard 6 class teacher Cikgu Tharidi would ask any boys who talked in class to sing.There was a story that the old toilet was haunted.It looked scary even during the day because there were no lights(dark and gloomy inside).Went to KE VII Secondary 1974 - 1978.The late Mr. Long was the Principal and the dreaded Junjong was the Senior Assistant.He always complaint of "I can still see boys parking their bicycles at the basketball court".

    While i'm looking my old friends in TMGS, I found this web site which I can share my memory while i'm studying in TMGS. I really miss the memories with my friends in TMGS. We're spent time together and have great time from 1991 - 1994. However, the great time was in class 2B (1992). The naughtiest in afternoon session. But we still maintain the grade...:-). To Miss Sapurabi, Mrs Wong...and who know me...thanx for everything. Now i'm in UPM to continue my study in Master and will be finish soon. to Lin, Mai, Jovi, Ame, Wei-pheng..siew mui...mei yin and the rest...retna, haz.... I miss you so much.... Hope to see you all in one day...




    Our dad is a former Georgian.So he wanted both of his sons to be Georgian as well.After studying in SGI since primary to secondary, we are really proud to be Georgian as what our father felt. There are millions of memories to share but in short that were the best days of our lives. We will always be a Georgion and our sincere thanks to all the teachers especially to Puan Sujatha Vasanthan. Prashand - class of 1994 Venodevan - class of 1997

    Going thru all the comments and letter posted here was the best trip I had down memory lane. I was a student at St. George, class of '94. Since graduating from Tpg, I can say I've been around a few places but nothing beats home. I still come back every chance I get since my parents are still living in Tpg. Have to make it a point to pay a visit to school. I too was under the tutelage of Mr Ravinder. To a 14yr old, he was the terror of the school. But, most importantly, he was among the best teachers I ever had. Same goes for Mr J.S. Solomon, Mr Oon, Pn Sujahta, Mr Mahendran, Mrs Chua CB, Mrs Chan Ding Kow... I still find the experiences and memories in secondary school to be the richest and certainly my fondest. To all my friends... I know some of you are half-way across the planet (Julian, Ong Eu Jin...) but if you ever stumble across this message, be sure to drop me a line. As for the rest of you (you know who you are), keep in touch.

    First of all,I'd like to thank Kayes for the webpage.As I read through, I found 2 emails from my friends of the days when I was schooling in SRJK Convent Kota and SMJK Convent Taiping from 1969 to 1979. Memories from my schooldays are....... Unforgetable............that's what they are.......... friends and teachers are...... For those who were from SRJK Convent Kota during my time, do you still remember Sr.Emannuel(Annie), Miss Pauline Dorai, Pn Azizah, Pn Ahsaniah, Pn Laili, Pn Sariah, Mrs Ho Ah Chai, Mrs Tan Tat Hock, Mrs Irene Lim, Mrs Chan Kwai Weng, Pn Muhitah, Miss Ang Siew Hock, Miss Ong Saw Kim, Ustazah Saadiah, Pacik Zainun(gardener), Ah San(carpenter), Louise(sweeper) & Rohana(Office girl)? They are all retired now except for Pacik Zainun & Rohana.Pacik Zainun is still staying in the same house which is at the side entrance of the school (remember the small gate?) I still meet them on & off in town as I'm living here in Taiping....home sweet home. Not forgeting the teachers from SMJK Convent Taiping, Sr Teresa, Miss Murugaisu (discipline teacher), Miss Soo, Mrs Ong Ah Guan, Mr Voon, Mr Goh, Mrs Monica Toh, Miss Yoon, Cg Baharum....they are also retired & are still in town except for Sr Teresa. Those were the days my friends...Jenny Simon,Ramlah Sham, Zuwaidah, Haslina, Chuah Chan Hoon, Muniamah,...fond memories we'll never forget..... I'd like to specially mention here that my parents were also teachers here in Taiping and my hope is that they are still remembered by their students.They are Cikgu Azizah Mohd Noor who taught in SRK Convent Kota for 32 years until she retired & Allahyarham Cikgu Zahid Jamal who was a teacher in SRJK St George I & later taught in SRJK King Edward II until he passed away in 1986 at the age of 49.

    I left Convent Taiping in 1989 and continued my form 6 studies in SM Dr. Buhanuddin in 1990. We Science Stream girls from Convent were the FIRST batch of Six Formers tranfered to SM. Dr. Burhanuddin. It was a dissapointment to all of us that we weren't able to continue studying in our "brother" school i.e. St. George but we went through 2 years in form 6 .......the annual Geogian Prom Nite, that year had to make a few "adjustments" allowing girls from other schools to be their respective dance dates!! I enjoyed all my 11 years in Convent Primary and Secondary. Sports Day in Convent: There were more boys that parents....It feels good to be a school runner then....I'm now a coach in the school I'm teaching and I still enjoy the outdoors. All my other friends who now work in KL still get - together and talk about the great times we spent together. I now work in Puchong and staying in Subang. They say Convent gals and the Geogians have a thing for each other .....maybe it's true because I found my soul mate in a georgian, whom I married after 12 years together last September. Thank you Taiping for getting us together.

    I'm a La Sallian, SRK St. Geogre(1983-1989) and SM St. George(1989-1993). I'm proud to be in that school.

    Abu Bakar Omar<>

    Born and bred in Taiping. Studied up to Standard IV in Sekolah Kebangsaan, Assam Kumbang(1959) and later proceeded to Special Malay Class I('60), Special Malay II('61) and Standard 6A ('62) in KE VII Primary II. The HM was Mr Khoo. Class Teacher was Ms Khoo, again Ms Khoo(different Ms Khoo) and Mr Leerdam for Standard VI. Those days being kicked in the 'but' and being hit at the back of the palm with the sharp side of the long wooden ruler, was not uncommon. We accepted those treatment as part of up-bringing. Promoted to Form I in KE VII Secondary. On the first day of school received a tight slap from Encik Radzi; whose wife is(was) Ms Khoo. Until today; at the age of 51 I could not explain the reason for being slapped on the face; on the first day of the Secondary School(1963). This was also the last year KE VII Secondary School had an expatriate Principle Mr McCummiskey, short, stout and bearded Englishman who carried a rattan cane with him. He was later succeeded by Mr L! ong Heng Hua(fondly known as Pak Long) who also 'educated' most students with his cane. During my time all the boys had the share of the cane. But it was done in good faith. I sat for my OSC/MCE in 5 Arts. The Form Teacher was Ms Yeap Gaik Khoon, Maths Teacher Peter Tay(who later became the Principal of Yuk Choy Schoolin Ipoh), BM was Cikgu Isa Ramli(retired as Deputy DG of Education), Science Teacher(Forgotten the name but the nickname was Abang Cartoon who stayed in Jalan Padang and cycled to school) Geography Teacher Mr Lim Swee Chin or fondly known as Bull Dog. Teachers those days were serious and meant business but they create human out of us. I am not so sure whether students of these days share the same glory that we had. I stayed in the School Hostel all were Malay students except for two Indian students Yellomalai(studied in the Malay Medium) and Maniam who hailed from Matang. I still enjoy visiting Taiping especially the lake gardens and of course passing by the s! chool as the class room is visible from the road. KE VII is a great school.

    The most memorable about my school is my school anthem. I could remember it word by word even after 21 years leaving the school. I studied at TMGS for 12 years (from kindergarten until my SPM in 1980). Presently I'm residing at Shah Alam and works in K.L. Do you remember the song "Yesterday Once More" by Karen Carpenter? I love that song and whenever I listen to it I will recall my happy school life . I hope yesterday will be forever. Million of thanks to my great teachers - Mrs. Zainal, Miss Lam, Mrs. Thang, Puan Jaharah, Miss Saw, Miss Looi, Mrs. Khir, Mrs. Ravinder, Mrs. Lucas ,Mrs. Goodman nee Miss Teoh, Puan Wan Zaleha, Puan Wan Teh, Mr. Kwa and my dedicated headmistresses Mrs. U Teck Hua and Miss Satwant. God Bless All Of You.

    Some of the happiest memories of my childhood were spent in Taiping. I started school at the Convent in 1952 and left in 1955. My first teacher's name was Mrs. Campbell. There were many different nationalities in the class from all over the world. I remember doing the Minuet dance, we were dressed in period style dresses, and other children did a Maypole dance. It was for the Queen of England's Coronation in 1954 and on the Lake they built a replica of the Golden Hind, that was pretty spectacular, especially for the children. I remember other parts of Taiping, our house and the many friends that my brother and I had at Kamunting, where our father worked. Leslie Donnelly

    Firstly, thanx a lot for this website. Bumped into it while surfing. Was a former TMGS girl....from 1982-1986. Memories of the yesteryears keep flooding back after reading those lovely articles by ex-Taipingites. Reading Looi TK's article reminds me once again about the shortness of life ie. having fond memories of Eric Boey who passed away unexpectedly in a RTA in 1999. So, it's good to take time to reach out to those we care and love. Schooling in TMGS was like a 'living hell' esp during exams, now, I think it is one of the best and happiest days of my life. Missed the gossips with my old friends...Chua Bee Leng, Joyce Chee, Sharon Khoo, Wan Fong, Megawati, Wan Suzynarita, Eni : missed having those silly crushes on our chemistry teacher the gorgeous Mr Sum, Mr Ong(physics) and the education of Biology by the lovely Ms Ho, the constant nagging of Ms Satwant Kaur, now the nagging is like sweet music to the ears. The never ending competitions in everything with the Convent girls were the highlights of everything. Missed those good 'fights'. Lastly, to my group of friends, hope that we can meet up again.

    Looking at the side gate next to the Grotto of the Main Convent school reminded me of the time when I was late getting to school and I was caught wearing Japanese slippers and was fined ten cents by the Prefect. The truth about wearing the flip-flops was because my white cotton latched up shoes were either not washed over the weekend or they were still wet from the washing on the Sunday evening! So the next time I knew better. I should have used a couple of plasters on the toes or dry my shoes by the fire at the cooking stove in the morning when my mother cooked our lunch prior to her leaving for work. When I looked at the dormitory floor of the school building, I remember I had my lst experience of eating butter and using a knife and fork at breakfast when I stayed over night in the dormitory after the Christmas Midnight Mass at St. Louis Church when I was in Form Four going on Form Five in Dec.1969. It was a big luxury for me to taste butter on toast! The whole experience of using a napkin and being served a cooked breakfast was such a privilege for someone who only knows how to use a spoon and chopsticks and who always had to fight for her portion of food among her four other siblings! Sweet memories of happy times at Christmas time.


    I left SM King Edward VII in 1978 after my MCE.My fondest memories were of my years in Form 3 to Form 5. Among them were the scool band and the Scouts. My principal then was the late Mr Long.

    I was a student of King Edward VII (2) Taiping since standard 1 in the year 1966. My former headmaster was Mr Gomez and my former class teacher was Mr Boey. I would like to get in touch with my old school mates(primary school) such as Abdul Latif b Mohamad, Mat Rodzi b Abdul Ghani, Mai Mang Lee, Zakaria and those who stated their schooling in standard one A in the year 1966. I left King Edward VII secondary school after form 5 in the year 1977 to settle in Ipoh. Please write in and could try to refresh our schoolday. bye.

    Though I was there in KE VII for my form six(1980-81)for only two years there are fond memories that I can never forget. Among the sixers we were very close. Our year was one of those years where we produce good passes in the STP result. Almost all of us continue to pursue our higher education. Thank you to our loving and caring teachers; the late Pak Long (Long Heng Hwa),Cikgu Mustafa (the Army guy who always told us why he had to wear thick glasses because of his involvement in students' demonstration in UM)), Mr Foo (or well known among us as Mr Kenyang coz' he always visited the canteen)Cik gu Harun (he was the warden for the boys' hostel) and others teachers too. For those who still remember me please feel free to contact me.

    I left Convent Secondary in 1987 and continued my form six education in SGI. Had lots of wonderful memories in both schools. I'm now a teacher. My first posting was in SRK King Edward VII (1). When my friends found out about it, some called me a "traitor" !! I guess most of you out there know about the "on going rivalry" between the schools in Taiping. SGI and KE, Convent and TMGS.It existed since my parents' time !! Well,is this still going on?!I really miss my school days and often wish I could go back in time. I guess being in school is one of the best time in one's life...

    Hi! I'm Noor Azuan of TMGS (1977-1981). I was TMGS student for 11 still visit the school when I "balik kampong". Proud to be one of the Taipingan and always proud to be one of the student in TMGS. Those times bring a lot of my memory...can still remember I was in 5 Science White 1981..Mr Sum (Chemistry and form teacher), Mr CBB, Pn Wan Zaleha and many others.. I was in King Edward for 2 mths before I when to USA. I still remembered our Lowersix Science 2 present a qoir song during Mr Long retirement..Junjung the deputy..and of course the friends there.. Really nice to remember the old days.. Oh Taiping! Really a great town....

    Hi Taipingites and Ex Taipingites, I am a former Georgian [form 1 (1978) to 3 (1979)] and ex Edwardian [std 2 (1972) to Std 6 (1977)]. Coming from two rival schools, I naturally made friends from both sides. Thanks kayes for taking the time to post up these photos - they bring back flood of memories, mostly warm and fond ones. As i read the postings here, I saw one from my good friend Eric Boey, (ex Edwardian). The sad thing is he passed away unexpectedly in a road accident slightly more than a year ago (1999). Reading his posting here reminds me once again about the shortness of life and why it's important for us to take time to reach out to those we care and love. I had a great a time in King Edward VII (KE-2). Friends like Chan Kok Liang, Eric Boey (dcd), Kanaseelanayagam, Loong, Beng, Hin, Huat, Meng, Yow, Salim Khan, Azman Wadood, Sharifuddin, Kamal Rusmin (dcd) and lots more made a difference at primary school. In fact, most of us are still in touch by email. The teachers, Cikgu Sharif, Cikgu Azizan, Ms Khoo Sin Nya, Mrs Ng Poh Leung, Mrs LW Ng, Mrs Chang, Mr BA Gomez (principal) and many more - they are remarkable individuals. The friends I met at Georgy: Robert Tan, Ching Fook, Jason Chin, Cheok Meng, Tuck Meng, Conrad, Kheng Huat, Suresh Kumar, Aminuddin, Kian Siew (dcd), Say Kiat, Igbal, Lourdes, Albert, and many more in the Scout Troop made growing up so much fun. The teachers such as Mr Maha (english), Mr Low Sai Seng (Sains Paduan), Bro James Saw (Geography) (dcd), Bro Matthew Bay (Art, Swimming, Life Saving & Scouting), Mr Yeap Heng (Form 3 class Teacher), Mr Patrick Teoh (Sains Pertanian), Mr Ong Ah Guan (Maths), Cikgu Abdul Rahman (bahasa), were excellent role models. I would not have made it without these crucial years of grounding in the basics. I still miss the Maxwell Hill and the Lake Gardens where I go for hikes and runs whenever i return as my parents are still in town. Not to mention the Burmese pool for camping and the Taiping town for lots of eateries (wanton mee and char keow teow) and activities. The schooling experience was never the same again after I left Taiping.! O! nce again, thanks Kayes for taking the trouble to keep this website going. cheers Teck Kheong Singapore

    Georgian ! Always proud to be one. Upper Six - Class of 1989. For me, the teachers I would always remember - Victor Lim, Bro. Matthew, Bro. Charles.


    I was in Convent Klain Pau for a year. Then moved on to another primary. Had a good time time there althought I can barely recall. Spent my five years in Sri Kota. Phew, I dunno what do others think about this school but I grew to like it. It ain't bad after all. I'm glad that I was there. If not I would not be where I am today. Thanks to the superb teachers and friends. It does not matter which school you are from. It's the way you carry yourself. Class of 1997...HURRAY! We had a fantastic year! Hope you all are doing well out there. Do email me if anyone of you see this! Ta

    Chong L CHOE<> Looking into photos of SGI brings back fond memories of my younger days there (1972-1976.)Completed MCE in '76 and left Taiping. Surfing the web to discover the departure of my friend and teacher Father James Saw was devastating.The society and especially SGI Taiping has lost a wonderful man. Guess wherever Father James may be, he will always look over SGI. What a great lost that words cannot describe.

    Went to TMGS all the way from 1976 to 1987. Good school. Ms. Amirul was my elementary school teacher.


    this is a great site man! i'm a georgian, class of 93, i love that school, memories always come back whenever i pass through the school,did any of you Edwardian guys know that Mr Junjung was in SGI 1n 1990 before he retired. another Edwardian teacher that was in SGI before he retired was Mr Mahendran,thought me English in form 5..i always love his classes because this guy travels a lot and he always tells us stories of his 'adventures'. The other teahers that i can remember are Mr Victor Lim, Mr Patrick Teoh, Mr Jamil(stone),Mr Francis Ho(Thundercat),Bro Charles, Mr Wong Pak Kiong (wonder if he's still teaching). Anyway, i understand that most of the 'old' guys are retired, just want them to know that they have thought us well.

    Klian Pau Convent and Convent Secondary School. Our geography teacher, Miss Chua who is rather large in size, got very angry with the class for failing her test and about half the class got walloping with the cane on our palms. Then one day many years later(I think it was 1988 or 1989)I saw her crossing the road in Melbourne Central, Australia, while I was sitting in the taxi at the red lights! I was so surprised and had to tell the taxi man about the beating I had when I was in Primary Five. My favourite teacher in Primary Six is Sister Ignatius(a M'sian nun)who taught me a lot to have faith in God and she was always very patient with us in class. I was sad to leave the Primary School and had wished in my heart that she would be my teacher again. This happened when I was in Secondary Two! She continued to be my guardian and counselor until I was ready to leave for UK and I still remember her comforting words when she said "When you do well, you could be a nurse tutor one day. May the Lord use you to be a light to others." Well, her wishes come true years later whenI obtained my degree in nursing education in Australia and later my masters degree in education. Primary school to me still holds pleasant memories while secondary school had some unpleasant memories but still overall, the pleasant ones still overrules the not so pleasant ones. I suppose life is like that and I learn to hope for a change even when the going is tough. I also received kind assistance from Reverend Mother Pius(an Irish nun), who was also mistaken by some pupils as "Mother Puss". It was because of her concern that I was given a free bowl of noodles (by a Mrs. Chang at the canteen) for lunch every day throughout my secondary school days. She helped me obtained federal scholarship, paid for my MCE examination fees as well as my yearly special fees and also for my X-ray fees prior to my going overseas. Then when I was in London I caught up with her as she had returned to UK and working as a superintendent of a Catholic Hostel. She was very proud of those of us from the Convent School as there were at least 8-10 or more of us in the same hospital. I had never forgotten what she reminded us about our motto "Simple in virtue, Steadfast in duty". I kept my promise to her about helping a needy pupil in my school with examination fees as she didn't want me to repay her. She paid for my above expenses out of her own pocket and this ! has impressed me of her action in Christ love. I realized that I was fortunate to receive such pastoral care from my school. This has shaped my concern for students in my care in tertiary nursing education. My hope is that teachers will be more caring to those under their charge. Education is preparation of a child for the future which is more than just academic success.

    Wow! It is quite a reach to remember back then, almost 20 years ago. I went to school at SMJK Convent from 1974-78..had a blast with schoolmates. I remembered one time in particular where I stood up and asked a very legitimate question..." Why can't girls play soccer too?". I then proceeded to form a team with the blessing of the pricipal at that time (Sister Teresa). I irritated the P.E teacher though...can't remember her name. The teacher that inspired me the most was my Biology teacher.....Miss Ong (?)I think? She told me to dream big and that nobody should ever decide your future for you!!! I have since graduated and went on to attend college in the U.S and am now working in the States. Would love to correspond with any who went to school at the same time I did.Some names I remember from the past, Ooi Poh Poh, Chuah Chan Hoon, Jasmiah, Azmon, Haslina, Thomas Yeoh (Geogian), Paik See, Marie Sansighn, and many many faces. If you are out there, e-mail me. Rock On!!!!!!!

    I suppose most of the people who send you an email are former students of the Schools in Taiping. Well, I am a former teacher from a long time ago. I was the science and health teacher at Treacher Methodist Girls School in 1958 and 1959. I am an Australian and was in Taiping with my husband who was a chaplain to the Australian forces in Malaya at the time. I loved my time at this school. I loved all the girls I taught. I still think about Taiping very often and would like very much to go back for a visit. If any of my former students read this, I would love to hear from them.

    Left King Edward Vll in year 1982. Was a Edwardian all the way from primary till secondary. Had a great time there. Memories of fights (fist/sporting matches/girls etc...) with the "school across the drain" (no offence ok. inter school competition). Just a note to say that now I am in Subang, I met up with lots of Taiping people and here we are no longer bitter enemies like during the schooling days but we are proud to let others know that we are Taipingnites or "Perak mali takda Sombong" and there is a certain closeness. How we kacau "Junjung" (Mr. Ravinder Singh)a man with a white turban and wears a neck support for some time and got away with it. (Do it smart).Anyway, if you should come accross this, no hard feelings ok, Mr. Ravinder. Would like to say a big thank you to my ex teachers both in primary and secondary. THANK YOU (Primary) Ms Teoh, Ms. Ng, Mrs Ng, Ms. Khoo, En. Shariff, En Azizan, En. Kamaruddin, Mr. Boey (my dad) & others that I can't remember. (Secondary) Mr. Thong, Mr. Long or fondly known as Pak Long, Ah Pak Kartoon (Mr. Lim Eng Keat), Mr. Ravinder Singh, Pak Chia, Pak Ho, Ms Janet and many more that I can't recall. A great thank you again for guiding and grooming me through my young schooling days to be what I am today. Thank you. As I've read through, the memories posted and for those Georgians who lives far away, I would like to mention that Mr. Ng Beng Por (a uncle of mine) passed away a couple of years back in Kajang, Selangor.Lastly, to my group of friends near and far, been great knowing you guys and hope that we can meet up again in ICQ soon.

    Left St. George's after School Certificate way back in 1969 and went to England in 1970 with our Taiping Clique - Jerry Tai Lai Seng (also here in Australia), Tony Wan Hon Mun and a couple more who I can't remember their names, sorry! If any of you out there who still remember us and have lost touch all these years, please drop us a line on the net. I can't say I have a favourite teacher whilst at St. George's but I respected most of them especially Ng Beng Poh, our Biology and Chemistry teacher. One specific teacher from Primary School I will always remember is Miss Foo Kon Tai. I hope she is well and healthy. Hope to hear from somebody from the old Taiping days.

    Something that I will never forget ! First day in Form 6 at Sek. Men. King Edward VII, back in 1983. The Principal was Mr. Sajad and the Assistant Principal was a Punjabi teacher (well, sorry! I have forgotten his name). And this Punjabi teacher was very popular among the school's students and was known to them as "Junjung". because he wore a "turban" on his head. On the first day at school, I was asked by him to get something from my previous school (certificate etc). And it happened to be that my previous principal (TMGS) was also a Punjabi but a lady. When I went to see her, she asked me "Who sent you here?". So I answered "Mr. Junjung". There I went, a big blunder for that year! The next day during school assembly at KE VII, "Mr. Junjung" announced loudly that there was a student trying to insult him and this student was ordered to see him after the assembly. And of course it was me lah tu ...... So apa lagi, I really "got it" from him. Thought I said sorry many many times, he still punished me. Poor me! Not only I got punished by him. I also got played out by the other students. Everytime they saw me, they would say "Junjung" and salute me! Looking back at the incident now, sincerely, I really was naive and did'nt even know a teacher's real name. I wonder where is this Mr. Junjung now? Anybody out there can help me?

    I am an ex-Convent Girl. It has been 11 years since I had my education there. From Standard 1 till Form 5. All my class teachers are still in my thoughts - Puan Arbayah.. Puan Wan Teh, Puan Rubiah, my beloved headmistress Miss Foo Kon Tai, Mr Tan,Puan Zarinah, Cikgu Raja Nordin and Mrs Lau. Not forgetting my best principal.. Puan Normah Mohamad. She was the one who makes me strong and patient all the time. You know what? We have been given heavy homework in every subject during our school break and that sounds so cruel. But then, that was Ok for me. If not for that bundle of workload, I will not be as hardworking as I am now. Well.. anyway, I want to thank all my teachers wherever they are now.

    Hi, just wanted to tell you that this is the best Taiping site I've seen. The rest were mostly "no Taiping site ah? I better set one up myself" types. Yours is the most extensive and informative by far, and you have some decent pix online. I can contribute more pix if you like, as I've done a lot of photography during my time there.BTW, I was born and bred in Taiping. Lived there till I was 18. My parents are still there. Anyway, if you're printing this, please don't list my e-mail address. I don't like getting Spam. One thing though, your sources for the origin of Taiping's name are dubious at best. As far as I know, Taiping means "Great Peace" which was meant to signify the end of the tin wars. Anyway you can always check with the real historians at the muzeum. Regards, Chan Lee Meng In.Tech The Star.

My curses on anyone and everyone who wishes to destroy our beautiful Lake Gardens and our beloved Maxwell's!!!!! Magni Nominis Umbra (also Magni Nominis Black-Bra and Magni Nominis No-Bra!!)


    Firstly, thanx a lot for this website. Bumped into it while surfing. Was a former TMGS girl....from 1982-1986. Memories of the yesteryears keep flooding back after reading those lovely articles by ex-Taipingites. Reading Looi TK's article reminds me once again about the shortness of life ie. having fond memories of Eric Boey who passed away unexpectedly in a RTA in 1999. So, it's good to take time to reach out to those we care and love. Schooling in TMGS was like a 'living hell' esp during exams, now, I think it is one of the best and happiest days of my life. Missed the gossips with my old friends...Chua Bee Leng, Joyce Chee, Sharon Khoo, Wan Fong, Megawati, Wan Suzynarita, Eni : missed having those silly crushes on our chemistry teacher the gorgeous Mr Sum, Mr Ong(physics) and the education of Biology by the lovely Ms Ho, the constant nagging of Ms Satwant Kaur, now the nagging is like sweet music to the ears. The never ending competitions in everything with the Convent girls were the highlights of everything. Missed those good 'fights'. Lastly, to my group of friends, hope that we can meet up again. tHATS ALL.

Still remember and could felt the taste but sadly the uncle have move shop. School time? Fuhhh...! Lots of memories..sad, happy, funny and serious too.Aaaii, during the time we still wear white shirt and GQ belt or long sleves with 'Fung Keong' basketball shoe to school. That's the time I remember, I kena 'saman' coz of school rules. Who else nothing but Mr. Ravinder S..., Wong PK also dangerous but English odd little bit. I like Mr. Tarmizi.. liek an Ustaz. Don' forget about MR Gee, he told us a joke about the 'Crocodile Underwear' and 'Why do Tarzan Have To Yell'. Kan..funny!! For the Georgian session 1987 to 1993 you could remember, that 1st table canteen is for who, right? Anyway, for who still remember me, please drop me a line or two. Dun care what you have just mail me some. For my friends who i could remember, Premkumar, LingSH, Lim Cheng Hsu, Chua Yew Hean, David Yak KK,Yong SK, Teoh Ban Lee, Teo EG, Jo'Aidy, Farid, Wong Tuck Hon, Jimmy TeohJ, Raymond ChinWC, Yu Man, Goh Kay Lai, Tean Cher Mai and ya'll. Long live Georgians.....
