We are ONE

Dear Friends,

The Back to BBGS blog is celebrating its 1-year anniversary and what an amazing year it's been..

One year ago, I was sitting in a hotel in Singapore when I decided (on a whim) to resurrect BBGS online and see how much support we could drum up. Looks like I wasn't the only one missing our schooldays. So many of you have come forward to share your stories, photos and memories. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Although it's been hard work, this blog has proven to be such a blessing, allowing me to enjoy:
  • re-connecting with classmates I haven't seen or heard from in 20 years!
  • meeting and speaking to some of my beloved teachers and knowing that they're happy and healthy in retirement
  • letters and emails from BBGSians of all ages who are living all over the globe
  • triggering reunion ideas for different generations of girls
  • 8186 online visits
  • 3843 visitors
  • readership from Malaysia, Singapore, UK, USA, Australia, Thailand, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and Hong Kong (that's just the top 10 countries)
  • emerging as No.1 on Google for "BBGS" related search
Being based in Shanghai for most of 2008 has proven to be a challenge in maintaining this blog. But dear friends, I am determined to persevere and will continue to tell your stories. Do feel free to write and share your stories and photos with me at I look forward to hearing from you.

May God continue to bless all of you as you strive to give nothing less than your best in every area of your lives.
