Brother Vincent Corkery & Mr Adrian Tsen -- A Pleasant Surprise

Pupils of the Ipoh's St Michael's Primary school were greatly thrilled when two very prominent figures -- La Salle Brother Vincent Corkery and Old Michaelian Association president Mr Adrian Tsen stopped by to greet the young Michaelians and wished them well before they sat for their mid-year examinations. Both were on their way to the construction site, located just behind the current school premises, where works of a new school block are in progress. Built at a cost of RM3.5 million, the 4-storey building will replace the dilapidated and termite-infested primary school block which has stood the test of time for the past 40 years. Scheduled to be completed early 2007, the new block, "Brother U Paul Memorial", merges Primary One and Two -- to be named as SK St Michael, Ipoh.

The Ever Popular Siti Khadijah Market

Visit To Kelantan

It was a time to unwind with my family. We visited Kota Bahru, Pengkalan Pegoh and Tumpat, a small town at the tip of the Kelantan state. Stayed at Flora Transit, a newly-refurbished hotel located very near shopping outlets and eateries. We were there from 29 May 2006 to 31 May 2006. A memorable and rejuvenating trip - esp visits to a few museums in town.
