If you look closely, you’d notice the pipeline on the far left of the picture. That should clue you in on the location. The men running belong to the HHH – yes, the popular Hash House Harriers! This picture was taken off their 650th Run Souvenir Magazine, 1977. Any members of the HHH reading this? We’d like to hear about your running (and drinking!) adventures ๐Ÿ™‚

The Humble Curry Puff!

Breakfast, tea time, supper…no matter what time of the day (or night) there’s nothing like a couple of warm curry puffs to accompany your tea/coffee. The one shown above are chicken curry puffs, the one cut into 3 pieces has a cheesy filling! Our photographer bought these at a road side stall along Jalan Canning Estate; the chicken curry puff was 50 cents, the one with the cheese filling was RM 1.50 ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s YOUR favourite curry puff filling?

Nellie High jumpsource: Janet Ferguson & Nellie Cumming

This was probably taken at a school sports day – most likely the ACGS (Anglo Chinese Girls School) Sports Day! I do wonder is the girl in the picture broke the record for the high jump event……

I vaguely remember the annual sports day at my school. But I’ll never forget the good ‘ol Milo van with the free Milo in paper cups (yummy!).ย What were YOUR school sports memories like?
