Hey guys, just thought I'd give a shoutout to everyone here to attend the makan session this Thursday. Yep, that's in three days time. Don't need to be on time or anything (though that's highly recommended) but at least come and join us. The more the merrier, eh? Details are already posted on the facebook page. Check your emails if you guys need the link. Or it would also appear on your fb homepage. Jeslyn's done a great job promoting hehe. It's been tough trying to get everyone together and we're all hoping there would be a great turnout.
See you there! ;)

Being A Blog Author

Hey all,

to Intanians who are not registered as Blog Authors (where you get to write blogposts for this site), please send me (LMK) your emails so I can register you as one. I'm the admin, meaning the Big Boss la, so you know what to do. Hehe.

I Was Reminded

I thought I'd post something here, seeing as I've just been revisited by George's great ghost.

It was a few hours ago that I was reminded to look up something in our senior year's school magazine, and decided to leaf through it as a break from Biology's several explanations on the mechanisms of impulse transmission across a synapse (influx of Calcium ions, blah blah blah).

And just going through it, my mind became flooded with the myriad of memories long kept somewhere in the dusty treasure chest at the back of my mind; almost forgotten and long silenced.

Can you remember the school mornings when you could have just anyone to talk to, from any class, just sit there and chat, and knowing that even if you were dreading that day, you'd still have that many people with you?

Can you remember recess and all that stupid jokes and our somewhat amateur take at national and school politics?

Can you remember skipping classes?

Can you picture the classrooms, and you, sitting there with your companion next to you, hate it or love it, and you, talking to the person at the other end of the classroom?

You, sharing a joke with the teacher and the class.

Laughing till you really cried.

Hugging a friend. (Or more)

Walking in the corridor and just being that carefree person that you are.

Going for silly society meetings or school outings, but laughing and talking a lot (too much, even).

Photographs and photographs and taking never-enough photographs, because there's no other way to remind ourselves of our youths, save these, writings and our slowly deteorating memory.

Can you remember loving SGGS so much, knowing that regardless of the unnecessary honours or bitching our school gets, we owe our memorable teenage years to the people we've met here, and that uniting bond that has brought us all together?

As I reached the "Graduating Seniors" page, I caught a glimpse of the word on the subcover, "It's the beginning of our lives" or something along the lines, and I thought, 'How funny'.

Perhaps in Form 5, we all thought that this was just the start - you know, going out into the 'real world' (whatever that means to Georgians), leaving Form 5, leaving school. Perhaps we thought that the road beyond 2007 would be the most amazing and flourishing times of our lives. And you know what, maybe we were right.

But it can't be the start. Hey, I'm pretty sure my journey included that proud clock tower, that crazy bunch of friends I've met, and the even crazier teachers guarding the school, and I bet it's the same for you, too.

I've learnt a lot from the people here - I've learn to voice out my opinions and communicate ideas, to lead, to laugh so very hard (oh you guys), to love (friends!), to cry, even, in front of friends, to share, to explore many possibilities and interests, and to appreciate.

Here's to the years in St. George's that has altered us in many ways. And here's to never ever forgetting them no matter what road we've taken or will be taking.

Though the destination is years and experiences away from our gaze, the journey began a long time ago.

Happy Birthday girl.

So guys, how was/is your weekend? Sabine, sorry if I can't reply to your email just yet - will find the time to do so!

Last night (Saturday) I went for this documentary-screening called, "Running", about foreign workers and refugees in Malaysia. It was really interesting and it was definitely an eye-opener to the mishandlings of the country officers towards refugees, especially. I have the DVD copy if anyone is interested.

Tonight, there'll be another film show called, Revolusi '48 (The Malayan Revolution of '48) from the director who brought us the 20 minutes-film, "Sepuluh Tahun Sebelum Merdeka" (Fahmi Reza).

In fact, he'll be there, too!

Details are as follows:

Venue: D' Space(3rd floor, 62 Weld Quay)
Organisers: the Penang Film Club (we meet fortnightly
Time: 8.00pm

This is a great opportunity to meet this filmmaker, and you can definitely ask him questions, too. This will def suit those who love history or love Malaysia for all its beauty and pain.

Go for it, if it's not too late!

The Intan Photoshoot Collection 2006

At last! We all knew it was about time this got mentioned, so here it is - behold! You, reader, are about to view our famous 2006 class photoshoots!

Hold on to your seats. (: It's been awhile since we have revisited the beautiful memories of 2006, but it's never too easy to dash out that memory of numerous captures we've had, is it now? These photos have their own significances and holds testimony to the uniqueness and greatness embedded in the souls of the Legends of 4 Intan.

Seriously, though, I'm just trying to say I love you guys for having such wonderful personalities and humour. In true intanian appreciation, I say, you guys ROCK.

I hope you'll enjoy the brilliant masterpieces of 4I 2006 which I've pasted here for your viewing/reading pleasure. Contributions and comments are always welcomed!


The Early Picture

This particular photo marked the dawn of a career our Intan protégés partook. The model here, seen aptly holding a card depicting her crime.. err... I mean dilemma, will eventually be the wonderful official 4I make-up artist. A great start, no?

And so it began

Group Shots
The Stars of 4 Intan 2006

Thus, the ideas and photo collection grew. Here we highlight a few of our very own Intan celebrities. Really now, what class has Ronald MacDonald standing next to a curry puff-haired Elvis? Only in 4 Intan, man, only in 4 Intan.

Desperate Classmates

It is important to note that the Desperate Classmates from Macalister Lane are actually fellow Georgians where students are concurrently faced with Add Maths mysteries and History scandals. Oh-ho, and you thought you'd seen it all in that spin-off tv series they call Desperate Housewives. Poof!

From Right
: The super-skilled sweeper with a deadly burp (many scandals, this one), the hungry activist (not communist! shh), the hungrier klutz whose laughter is a mystery on its own, the culprit who ate all the recess food, the hairless-armpit being from somewhere, the other being who's in it on the Add Maths mystery, and the only innocent person in this picture. She could be the detective investigating it all.

Just to make it clear, ABC television copied us!

Good vs. Evil

This photo was actually our last one taken that year, remember? It was taken on the last day of school. It portrays the ongoing internal debates an Intanian has had to withstand between Good and Evil. Of course, more often than not, we follow Jeslyn... I mean, our Evil side.

But we're nice people... Right?

The Legends
One of the most important segments (and also our last part) of our class photoshoots is the individual photos. We don't have every one of our classmates here, though, but we will soon enough!

Chrisdolf Hitler

Ada Poppins

Sherilyn Bonaparte (who led the French Fries Revolution)

Mona Evonne

N.B. Mona Evonne is actually the great inspiration for Mona Lisa (which Da Vinci painted after time-travelling to 2006), but enough about him. The question is, is Mona Evonne smiling in this painting? We will never know...


N.B. Qisro burns fire from all parts. Ignition comes from the mouth, hands, and the (oops a little fart!).


N.B. Tareeni's alter ego is the great phoenix, which, unfortunately, can be a drawback as noted from the second picture. Oh well.

The Indefatigable Spidermodel

Count Sabine

Count Sabine & Count Caroline (the count-erpart)

Mrs. Bean Ruth

She's not a 4 Intanian, but we had to include her in our photoshoot simply because she played a mighty role as Mrs. Bean, so there you go.

So that's that!

I know there are never enough words one can use to elucidate the oneness that was/is 4 Intan of 2006. The photo sessions were really meaningful, and I'm absolutely grateful for the spritely and CRAZY nature of all of you.

I sincerely hope you enjoyed the collection of photos. I mean, I definitely did, collecting them and going through them once again! I can almost detect laughter ringing in my ears. It makes me miss you lot even more, you know? But that's one of the reasons we've started this blog, right? To share the memories we've had together. So I've taken this opportunity to post the photos up and make you laugh and cry about the past, but also face the new day with a better spirit (to spread the Intan love)! Haw haw, I hope that was soppy enough. Thank you, peeps!

Hello again!


Hey everyone! It's so nice to hear from all of you again (well, those who've been online and updating lately, anyway).

Thanks, Kath, for the update and the photo - What a great start! It's a good idea to post it up, too.


First of all, I miss everyone!!! How la are my favourite people doing?? Having that continual bout of myocardial infarction from all that academic exam pressures? Yep, same boat, same boat. Can't wait till it's over for the next Intanian reunion. Please reply in the comment box of Sabine's post, everyone!

I'll start updating this wonderful space now. Enjoy your weekend, everyone! Happy Easter to those celebrating it! =)
