Candle 11: Noor Ashikin Ishak

Continuing with our Project Kindle series, here's a letter from Noor - who is searching for her classmates from the Class of 1977. If you'd like to get in touch, please send me an email at joannayeoh@gmail.com.

Hi Joanna

I once did a ‘shout’ on your blog. You responded by suggesting that I should 'write' instead. Not sure where to start. Guess I'll just have to introduce myself…

I am Noor Ashikin Ishak and I was in BBGS from 1973 to 1977. During that time, “remove classes” were still around. I was not a brilliant student, neither was I popular in school. Here are some of my memories:-

  • I used to try to “ponteng” the weekly Maclay’s house practices and got myself woken up by the librarian.
  • I tried to be polite to Ms Cooke one afternoon, by wishing her “Good afternoon” and got caught instead for my untidy (already) short hair! She did follow-up with me the next day, to see if I did something to have more decent hair!
  • My favourite teacher was Mrs Lian (class teacher of Special Remove Class 1).
  • My classmates in the third form (3 L),1975 includes Celia Foong (the famous model). Together with a few other girls, we went to watch few movies of the “WINNER” a HK/Taiwan band group.

My years in BBGS were the most interesting years of my teenage life. I appreciate the values that BBGS tried to instill. I have always been proud to be part of BBGS.

I am still in touch with few of my schoolmates. I will try to get them to write too.

Finally, like any other, I wish to get in touch with my old schoolmates. Hopefully, there are few, if not many, out there who recognise me.

Thank you for your initiative in keeping BBGS alive!

Noor
