We don’t go around blowing our own trumpet…but this is something we’re really proud of, and it’s worth shouting out from every roof top in Ipoh town!

Pretty Souvenirs!

No, we’re not selling these! But do any of you remember the time when such souvenirs were popular? I once saw a souvenir plate / saucer (somewhere in my grandfather’s cupboard) with a picture of Prince Charles, Princess Diana and little Prince William (issued at the time of Prince William’s birth). I do wonder if people merely collected such cutlery or if they intended to use them…

‘Leaked’ Exam Paper…

…well, not really 😉

But do YOU remember what your examination paper looked like when you were in school? Here’s one from 1928, the English Grammar paper from Cambridge for the Junior Local Exam.


What kind of student were you back then:

a) the ever-ready student, eager to perform well?

b) the one who constantly burnt the midnight oil, and crammed as much as possible before the test?

c) the ‘gifted’ one who never really studied, but got top marks all the same?

d) the one who panicked and broke into a cold sweat before the exam, fearing the worst?

e) the one who was as cool as a cucumber?
