Chang Mei Mei

It must have been more than a decade since I last saw you. In fact, to be precise, it was some 17 years ago! And 17 years is a very long time with many many days, weeks and months. But everything seem so fresh in my mind as though you were still around.
-
Thanks to Facebook, I accidentally "found" you! It was really nice to know that you are doing very well and that you have kinda "migrated" to London, UK. I am sure London must have been treating you comfortably that you don't want to come back home. But I was thrilled when I got your Facebook message saying that you will be coming back to Malaysia for a two-week holiday.

It was awesome being able to catch up with you again during lunch and yamcha sessions. 17 years...that's a lot of catching up to do! Looking back at some of our old photos, they certainly bring back many old memories, the times we had together. The good ole Yamaha days and the family gatherings.
-
Ladies and gentlemen, this is Chang Mei Mei. Someone who is very special and dear to my heart.

This picture was taken in 1991, I think. It was taken in one of the music studios in Yamaha Music School, Subang Parade where I was teaching last time (1988 - 1994). As you can see, I look pretty good last time...slim and adorable. Don't you guys think so? Haha... I know, I know...I look much better last time. But that's a "boyish" image. After 17 years, one has to mature, rite?

Mei Mei, you have not changed much besides, like me, gained some weight, a little here and there! Nevertheless, you still look great! Matured, no doubt. The pair of dimples on your smile are still there, nice!

Here is a picture of both of us taken last week.
-
But tonite you will be catching your flight back to London. Two weeks passed so quickly, even you wished you had another week here. Nevertheless, life goes on. And for you, its back to some London air, away from this current Malaysian heat. I pray that you will have a safe and pleasant flight.

Good bye, my friend...a very special friend indeed. Till next time, take care!

audrey~ i agree with u! xD
omo.. Boss u are a music teacher?? COOL COOL! xD

Babyboss Pictures said...

Fen, thanks for your kind compliments. But I personally think that a lil slimmer would be just nice. Loose that tummy and that double-chin would be nice.

Yes, I was formerly teaching music in Yamaha Music in Subang Parade (1st Floor). I teached the piano and electone and the digital sequencers and stuffs. I also teach children courses (age 4-10) and they give me nightmares! Teaching was my first job, then went on to insurance, then photography and events.

And now, I am hoping to semi-retire liao. Dunno whether can or not. Haha...

Babyboss Pictures said...

Miamihero : Kekeke...cool leh? Kekeke... But I no longer teach. But at my church, I am still playing the keyboard on a occassional basis. Now I play mainly on the drums and sometimes the bass guitar! Oya...sometimes...I also sing! Woohoo! :)

Violin is the toughest instrument to master. I learnt acustic guitar until my left arm cacat, muscle pain. Violin is even smaller!
