It is amazing how ACS old boys stay in close touch to continue friendships that were developed since school days. Even though separated by time and distance, we always remain ‘connected’ in spirit and behave as if it was only yesterday that we left school whenever we meet after a long lapse of time. This was exactly what happened in Toronto, Canada recently when my wife, Shirley and I caught up with four former schoolmates who have been living there for decades.

Over lunch with Leonard Lye, Vinodrai, Choong Kian Choon and Denis Tay Chuan Hock at the Pearl Harbourfront Restaurant in Toronto, we recalled many happy memories of our school days and chatted away animatedly as if we were back in school. Kian Choon brought along an old boy scout photograph which was the talking topic as we figured out who’s who in the photo and where they are now.

We thoroughly enjoyed the meeting with our old school mates and we look forward  to more opportunities for such gatherings, be it in Singapore or anywhere else in the world.
