From miyagi.sg: The Best is in Days of Yore

Last night I attended the 126th ACS Founder’s Day Din­ner and had fun catch­ing up with my class­mates (Class of ’85), dis­cov­ered that Ger­ald Giam is an ACS boy (Class of ’93), as is Lam Pin Min (Class of ’85). We also spent some time try­ing to recall what Messrs. Lam and Tan Chuan-Jin (Class of ’85) were like in school. Luck­ily for them, we couldn’t remem­ber much. It was also a good thing I arrived really late, at the 2nd last course of the sharks­fin­less Chi­nese din­ner, and avoided the time-honored tra­di­tion of present ACS boys and girls try­ing to sell all man­ner of school mem­o­ra­bilia, mer­chan­dise, and solicit dona­tions from diners. Please hor, school very big already. No need to annoy old boys pay­ing $100 a head to catch up. All you’re doing is train­ing the kids when they grow up to sell tis­sue paper at the hawker centre.
