Kopitiam@SNC

Last Friday, my parents brought me and the kids to a kopitiam situated in a place which used to be my school, St Nicholas Convent, Alor Setar. As soon as we entered the school gate, I was transformed into my own world. I saw girls running around and giggling to each other when all of a sudden, Miss Mak, our headmistress appeared out of nowhere. When the school bell rang, we would then head to our classrooms and enjoy being an SNC girl....

I was awaken from my dream when my son started pulling my blouse. Grrrr...

That place was a hit! It was packed and you can order from nasi goreng to chicken chop. I was still skeptic of the place but after tasting my dad's meal, I didn't even talk but concentrated on tasting what had been ordered for others. My favourite was KCK. Apparently, when they started the place a gentleman ordered a dish which was not on their menu and he taught them how to prepare it. He was chief of the special branch (Ketua Cawangan Khas).

This is not KCK but my dad's special order. A combination of three dishes.

It was a mixed feeling of surprised, excited, sad and happy. I wish all of my schoolmates could gather here again, having breakfast in honor of our beloved SNC.

My friends and I have gone to this kopitiam for breakfast the morning after our last two reunions, or bila balik Raya. We sat at where my Std 2 class used to be .... 2 Yellow at the very end. It's sad that such a splendid school cannot be preserved. It's a great loss. (And with Miss Sibert's recent passing, that's another great loss).

well at least u dont have to endure looking at one huge, ugly aladdin sorta lamp like what my school has. i despise the lamp. u.g.l.y. still cant get the idea why the lamp would be an icon to my school. not that we need to rub lamps to be intelligent. nonsense....
