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! =)

December Holiday!

I don't want to put my initials. It is erm...nevermind. LOL.
I'm sure most of you know why....


Hey buddies!

I have got updates regarding the trip we so-called plan for coming December. Up till now there has been no confirmation of anything. And quite a while ago, Carol has told me that she can't make it in December.

So girls....honestly, I think we are too ambitious in our previous plan. We may still be traveling within Malaysia, but we still got to think of the cost. Our plan is not exactly cheap either. And I doubt I myself can save enough for that trip. [need money for new handphone to replace my pathetic one...sudah rosak...T.T ]

Besides, this is our very FIRST road trip. I hope there are more to come. I think it should be better is we choose ONE venue. Makes planning much easier and more realistic too.

The question is what kind of trip are most of us interested in? The thing that would pop into your mind would be "as long as it is fun". No, that is not the answer. Adventure with Nature? Sea? Beach? Mountains? Or Theme Park? Please please let me know.

Now, I was thinking of Nature. LOL.

Snorkelling? I really had a fun time in Redang. But in December [monsoon season], we should opt for Pulau Payar in Langkawi. I have a friend staying on Langkawi that might be able to help me with the bookings if you guys are interested. =] And there are other places in Langkawi that we can go like the Mat Chinchang Cable Car and there is a GeoPark too.

Pulau Pangkor should be great too.

Cameron Highlands?

Taman Negara? There is a package. 3days/2night or even 4days/3nights.

Just one place fellas. Lets decide fast.

Feedback feedback. =]
