Someone sent me a link to a youtube video of Hwa Chong.

After viewing that video clip on how the Hwa Chong school song came about, I was drawn to all the other links, and found myself reviewing all the orientations, and activities I went through, myself as a student 14 yrs ago and then from 2001-2006 as a teacher. Many memories starting flooding through me, and I began to miss hc so much.

Will post some links here for all my ex-classmates, ex-students and colleagues who similarly miss those days in the past.

1. The School's official video (in english), shot in 2005 i think? Correct me if I am wrong, Danielle.

Nice seeing former students Xiz, Stef etc in the video, and Danielle as well. :-)

The Chinese video's URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OP5ttVVvZw
Chinese video is actually longer, cos there are longer student testimonials at the 7min mark? Any other differences?

Ignore the many immature comments on Youtube though. Even kids' clips have vulgarities at the comments area. That's the ugly side.

2. How the Hwa Chong school song came about.
It's actually a very popular school/ college song throughout USA (eg Cornell), China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and featured in a movie as well.

Dh said he did tell his students the tune was from American origin when he taught the school song to them in Sec 1. I always thought it was chinese in origin because it just sounded so chinese-y. haha. It was even used for an impt historic event in USA.

1857, written by Boston songwriter Henry Thompson. Original song entitled Annie Lisle, a ballad.

3. Couldn't find orientation of my 1st batch, 2001's students. This is the 2003 batch's orientation video, and interestingly, it featured a lot of my class' students. Ds1 could point out "kor kor Benedict"! Because at the Plaza Sing gathering of my ex-students and my kids and I, Ben was the one who did silly crazy things with him and played Ultraman with him throughout the dinner at Manhattan Fish Market. haha.

4. Many other videos will pop out as related videos when you view the above clips.

5. This is a really FUNNY one. Dh laughed loudly when I asked him to come view it.
For those not in the know, the male teacher is a well-known figure- the head of discipline in HC. ie, the "fiercest" of all the discipline teachers.

Is that guy student Wee ming? He looks very much like the 03S79 student I taught, but I am not sure because the video looks much more recent.
