Shuk Ling and I went back to our primary school where we first got to know each other in 2003. While waiting for her little sis we took a tour around the unfamiliar renovated school. They changed the field into a lower ground carpark, the field got boosted up to the normal ground level. Gone were the large steps we usually skipped down to get to the field. The new sports center, new table/benches at the canteen, new corners, new toilets, new everything!

We visited the 贩卖部 or (in English) your typical school mini bookstore. We’re so used to calling it in Chinese it’s the Only Name People Respond To (not sure if today’s Choong Wen kids still call it that?) It was the only thing that hadn’t changed. It HAD, BUT IT HADN’T! In my 2003 mind I could climb atop and perch on the counterside and easily swing my legs, now it barely reached past my waist. Marvelled at how small I used to be!
