Memoirs of a Sea Scout: Entry 017

Look at that teacher! Is she pregnant again? How can she be pregnant again after she just gave birth to a baby boy earlier this year? I can't even remember the last time I saw her not looking like a hippo. She must have a really very active sex life with her husband. Either that or they are aiming to form a football team. They should really learn up on birth control but I heard they are not suppose to use any birth control as it is against God's will to do so. I guess she just have to bear with being a baby factory then.

Viva La FREES 21 October 2007

SCHOOL ATTENTION! And there it go again, every single year on this date we Frees honour the founding of our School, the Penang Free School. For many Old Frees, nostalgia strikes sudden and hard memories will rush back through the years to October 21st, a day mellowed with age; a timeless repetition of history; the simple ceremony at our Founders tomb in early dawn, attended by selected few; the smart parade on the field, the grand ceremony in the Great Hall, all these will have pleasantly surprised Rev. Hutchings.

In such a long period, the Free School has achieved many remarkable things that not many other schools have done; rich in tradition, our Alma Mater's legacy of academic and cocurricular excellence is reputably and arguably one of the nation's best. Some say we have become complacent, the past is what we have been always proud off but we should focus on the present and the future as well. The Penang Free School stands on the threshold of a new era, the Frees of the day should continue their predecessors domination and majestic reign and the legacy of the Grand Old Lady with a sense of pride. Here's a short momento to the Grand Old Lady:

Results of the 1969 Soap Box Derby

Previously, we promised the next installment in this series to debunk claims that the pedal car race organised by the Penang Turf Club in August 2007 is the first ever pedal car racing in Malaysia as claimed by them and rubber-stamped by the Malaysian Book of Records, is to be the report of the first Scout Car Grand Prix back in 1969. Before we get to that, wouldn't it be interesting to know the results of the race first? Here's the list of winners for the Scout Soap Box Derby of 1969.
