Alas, September is here and as this new week begins we find an empty space, a gap, a void in our midst. Yes one of our group, our dear scobber Hui Ting "The Ting", has gone, departed, moved on to new pastures.
In retrospect, perhaps I shouldn't have used the word "departed" as it may give the impression that she has passed away but NO!!! Do not worry! Hui Ting is alive and well. What I mean to say is that she has just moved on to a new job, as indicted in the her Memoirs below.
Thanks Hui Ting for all your help at the observatory. Sorry I didn't really provide you with the necessary info to help ease you in, it must have been like getting thrown in at the deep end. I'm glad SK and Albert Ho were there with their great help.
Was Yong really that grumpy while I was away?
I like your Memoirs. I was wondering what you were thinking that orientation day, you were very quiet I remember :0)
Anyways, on the subject of those "liquids". Below are some photos of one of our outings to commemorate the beginning of The Ting's last week at Science Centre. (apologies for the blurriness of the photos, however, this may represent the vision of certain people after the consumption of said liquids :p)
At this point, I must point out that we scobbers are not compulsive drinkers of said liquids nor do we condone excessive drunkenness. We do like to drink such liquids on occasion purely for social bonding, fellowship and for the sometimes delusional ambition of becoming connoisseurs of said beverages.
Motto of the day: Drinking can be good but do so only if you want to and responsibly within your own limits. Also, respect the age limit and do not drink and drive :o)
That said, now on with the photos:
Prior to arrival of "said liquids"
In consumption of "said liquid"
Yong looking like he is in violation of everything I just said about being responsible with "said liquids"
Don't worry folks, he didn't really drink that much, we gave him all our empty glasses. He's just pretending............ or taking a nap, I forget which ;p
I like this photo because it looks like Yong has a transparent head, maybe he feels lightheaded! hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.....I crack myself up sometimes :)
