Saving Yesterday For Tomorrow

Here we have a picture of St Joseph’s Church, in Batu Gajah. From what we know, the church was built in 1882. This picture was taken around 1957.

    Thanks for sharing. Here’s a photo that I captured tbis month during my hometrip back to BG. I have not been to this place after moving away from Malaysia for so many years, and it’s nice to be back and able to see these beautiful buildings once again. Here’s the link to my shot of this church

    This church is the Catholic church at Batu Gajah with a cemetery, adjacent to the Protestant Cemetery – God’s Little Acre.

    Behind this church was my kindergarten back in 1967. I still come here sometimes when I went back to Batu Gajah just to soak in the nostalgic feelings of childhood. There were many a time when the gates bore witness to my tears while standing there all alone waiting for my dad to fetch me when everyone had left for home after school was over. There were also many a time when the kindly Father who stays up in the quarters adjacent to God’s Little Acre would come up to me and ask me why I’m crying and to see if I’m okay. Despite that I had a lot of fond memories in this kindergarten. After all this is where I first established bonds with some of my friends to which I’m still bonded with until today. I can still remember the games we played and the fun we had. Batu Gajah will always have a special place in my heart no matter where I’m stationed now…….
