TPS alumni are going places!!! Vol 2

In Volume 1, we were transported to London, United Kingdom. This time, we go east to the Land of the Rising Sun with Sam Chan Meng Kwang. Meng Kwang, as we knew him back in school, was very fleet-footed. You would be forgiven if you thought Sam had golden winged sandals, just like Hermes, the messenger of Zeus.

Sam was good at running, the monkey bars, one-leg and anything athletic. He definitely was in hot demand for Sports Day. Despite his slight build, Sam was also very righteous and often stood up to bullies, for example on Eric Lee’s behalf for a 5-cent coin that was taken away. Mind you, 5 cents could bring us a long way back then. Yes, we also have that infamous pinching incident that Sam was allegedly victimised in….with one of his very good buddies as witness (kelong????).

Throughout the years, Sam kept in touch with Ng Kok Kiang, Philip Yeo Yong Long and Daniel Lim Ngee Khiang. (See https://tps1979.wordpress.com/2014/03/11/how-we-got-reacquainted-our-personal-perspectives/ )

Well, Sam was not just speedy in covering so much ground in and around Tokyo but also in sharing this great video with us! You sure wear that t-shirt with pride!

Thanks, Sam and also to Su Hiang for hosting the video in his Youtube account! Enjoy!
