Won't it be ironic if Whitney can't even sing this good nowadays?

Upon completing my primary school education in KB, I joined Maktab Sains in 1990. I spent five and a half years there and left in August 1995. Since leaving Maktab Sains, there have been just a handful of people that I keep in touch with.
Fast forward to 2010 and 14 years passed since my Maktab Sains years. Within the 14 years, the internet world exploded, bringing with it, facebook, friendster and a lot of other social network sites. From Facebook, I've been able to be reconnected to some of old friends; some who would not mind keeping in touch with and some who I would. Just recently, I found out there has been quite a strong urge by certain people to organise a reunion of all 1990 Form 1 intake students. I can quite recall that I was not really that social then and I don't think I knew everyone in the same year. I still have difficulties trying to remember a person, whose friend request on facebook remains unanswered.
There are certain people in my year that I would meet and catch up. But meeting 100+ people from an episode of my life that I probably couldn't remember much, nah it's not my cup of tea.
The reunion is planned to happen in June 2010. Perhaps I would have a change of heart or I would be 'conveniently' away from Brunei!

At last, a project has been launched to build a bridge from Temburong to Bandar Seri Begawan. The project is estimated to be worth BND500 million and will be financed through public-private partnership scheme. The Government will be financing BND300 million and the rest will be by a consortium, who will be given the rights to collect tolls to cover the cost of the project and the maintenance of the bridge. The bridge will provide a direct link between Bandar Seri Begawan, by-passing the Malaysian town of Limbang. The bridge is expected to be completed as early as 2013.
