Blog Status

Update: Please note that Joanna Yeoh has resigned from the BBGS OGA Executive Committee on 16 August 2009 and is no longer able to represent the views of the Association. Kindly contact the President for any further information. Thank you.

Dear Friends,

It's been such a pleasure to serve the BBGS community through this blog and I've been so blessed by your kind words, support and love. Thank you for recognising and greeting me at the gala reunion last week.

Our readership passed the 37,000 mark this morning and we're only two years' old. I can only hope that the blog will grow from strength to strength in the coming years and more of us will be re-united with kindred spirits from our school days.

Back2BBGS is my personal blog which was set up to preserve BBGS memories in cyberspace. I take great care to ensure that the facts are correct, sources are credible and permissions are obtained for the stories and images. It is a matter of personal integrity, in addition to copyright.

From today onwards, this blog will revert back to its original intent and will remain a personal blog.

I am unable to adequately represent or be personally responsible for matters relating to the BBGS Old Girls' Association (OGA) or the Elena Cooke Education Fund (ECEF). The OGA has agreed to set up an official website as the channel of communication amongst its members. Meanwhile, all queries regarding monies and administrative matters should be addressed to the OGA President at

All other personal stories of girls, teachers, staff and reunions are welcome and will continue to be published as per the original intent of the blog.

Thank you for your kind understanding.

Joanna Yeoh
Founder of Back2BBGS Blog a.k.a "The Blogger" :-)

Well said, Joanne. I was just having a strange feeling the other day....why the back2bbgs blog "feels" different. Now I know why. Thanks for allowing your blog to be the platform for organizing the successful mega reunion.

You're most welcome. My end goal for starting the blog was to see a mega-reunion at the Pavilion and it happened - in a BIG way- and for that, I am blissfully content.

Dear Joanna,

On behalf of the BBGS Old Girls' Association, I would like to thank you for your fantastic blog that has been a great help in making the 4 August BACK2BBGS event a huge success. Appreciate your generosity in allowing us to publicise the event and OGA activities. It is now time for the OGA to have a website of its own—especially now that we have revived the association and set up an OGA bank account. Terima Kasih!
