Bangkok - My First Holiday Outside Malaysia

Mr Quah Guan Teik organised this bus trip to Bangkok.  Good holiday after LCE.  On returning to ACS the LCE results were out on the notice board!  Well certainly a lot of anxiety all the way home!  Mr Chan Chee Yin (Maths teacher) met his wife-to-be during this trip.  I am seated 3rd from right.
