Down Memory Lane

As I was clearing away unwanted stuff and going through my old photo collection and letters, cards and autographs, it brought me back to the 90's. I read an old diary I used to write in and I felt like I reading something that someone else had written. I have forgotten who I used to be and yes, I felt silly. But those were the events that made me who I am today and I will not trade it for anything in the world.
I can't remember when this picture was taken in uni, but it sure gave me the warm feeling. It's genuine, what we were. It's unpretentious. We were carefree and happy. As most undergrad students are.


And ohmigod look how young we were. This was taken at Taman Negara, 1998. I much prefer the way he looks now. All the manly charms...and extra flesh around the belly. Still the same heart.


*flashback to 1994* Way before digital images existed. Want to photoshop anything? Here.


X-files trading card. I'm keeping it for Daniel so that when he's 8 in school, all his friends exchange Ben Tennyson, Power Rangers, Transformer cards, he is the only one in class that has the exclusive edition of alien cards.

Autographs, autographs, autographs. Roses are red, violets are blue, friends forever, I'll remember you.... These days, everyone writes on everyone's Facebook, which by the way... I suck at it.
