5 Jul 2015: QMC Tea Session & Durain

It was a tea session held at the British Club by Alvin's alma mater Queen Mary College, University of London. That usually means an opportunity to catch up with some old pals. Alvin met only Boon Hou and Robert Lim this afternoon.It was a tea session held at the British Club by Alvin's alma mater Queen Mary College, University of London.

In the evening, we enjoyed some Malaysian durains. Alas, we are really poor at selecting good durains. In fact, we have no idea how to pick durains at all!

It was a great Saturday morning sweat out by hitting balls, or more accurately attempting to hit balls, and running about to catch balls.

Alvin sharing the story of Tigerland Rice Farm

The exhibition was creatively set up with wooden crates and wire mesh. It was a pity that the organizer didn't do sufficient publicity to attract a bigger crowd. We had a good hearty chat with Pei Fen though.
