The Third Day Activities for the Homecoming

On this day, May 06, we had our rehearsal at the school , in the morning. Lunch was at an "Eat All You Can" restaurant courtesy of a batchmate from abroad since it's her birthday. However, there were only about 20 of us who went because some had heavy breakfast when they went to have pictures taken at a tourist spot in another town. After lunch, we all went home. We came back at 6:00 for our torch parade as you can see in the picture where we are in red caps. When it was over, 4 of us went to the hotel where a batchmate from abroad stays for the duration of the activities. We refreshed ourselves there and changed clothes. And we posed too for a souvenir as you can also see in the picture. At 7:00 p.m. , we had dinner at Alvi’s. The foods there were really delicious. A picture is also attached. Again, we had some raffles , courtesy of those from abroad. They even raffled US$50 , AUS$50 and Philippine money. We also again had some dancing. At least the foods we ate were a bit used up by dancing .

@LadyDuck So you haven't experienced being reunited with your former classmates. Before , I don't like to attend because I was thinking some would brag of their achievement in life. But no, everyone treats each other equally. The rich are so generous.

@nomus24g You should also attend Alumni Homecoming of your school. Then try to form a group from your batchmates who are just in your place, where you can all meet every now and then eat at a restaurant, Dutch treat. This will make you all closer to each other and would love meeting up every now and then. That's what our batchmates, based here do.

You know since the start of the general rehearsal, we keep having dinner and also lunch out. I gained poundage, but I like it. And yes, the catching up with each other never stops. The restaurant can become so noisy with our talks. ha ha ha How are you? Are you back in Singapore or still at the US?

Looks like you and your classmates really enjoy your reunion! Twenty is still a good number considering that many of you could be so busy with your lives, and some could already be living abroad.
