Awal Muharram


Salam Maal Hijrah 1430 kepada semua umat Islam daripada SMIOB.

GoOdByE 2008..


How do I say goodbye to what we had?
The good times that made us laugh
Outweigh the bad.

I thought wed get to see forever
But forevers gone away
Its so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

I dont know where this road
Is going to lead
All I know is where weve been
And what weve been through.

If we get to see tomorrow
I hope its worth all the wait
Its so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

And Ill take with me the memories
To be my sunshine after the rain
Its so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

And Ill take with me the memories
To be my sunshine after the rain
Its so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

Memori Aku Di SMI

Haii masih ingat kenangan kelas 6 biru! Kini aku ingin menceritakan perjalanan kisah kelas A7 di Sekolah Menengah St Michael Ipoh pada tahun 1992 sehingga 1994. Usah di tanya bagaimana aku masuk kelas A7 ni yang pasti pihak sekolah yang aturkan. Seperti kenangan kelas 6 biru tak banyak perkara yang dapat di ingati namun perjalanan di kelas A7 penuh dengan kesabaran dan kecekalan untuk belajar.

Umumnya di sekolah ni mempunyai 10 kelas dan diberi nama A1 sehingga A10 untuk tingkatan 1 sehingga tingkatan 3 dan secara purata mempunyai 40 pelajar setiap kelas pada tahun-tahun tersebut. Kelas 1A7 sehingga 3A7 adalah permulaan hidup ku mengenal erti peranan seorang pelajar

Ok kelas 1A7 sehingga 3A7 tak jauh berbeza dari segi suasana dalam kelas iaitu kerusi meja kayu, papan hijau, kabinet buruk (simpan alatan mengajar), lantai simen, kipas dan papan info ( di bahagian belakang kelas). Dari segi dimensi kelas segi empat sama dan siling boleh tahan jugak le tinggi. Mana kala lokasi pulak kelas 1A7 di ground floor (senang nak ponteng), kelas 2A7 di 2nd floor (penat naik tangga) betul-betul sebelah mini gereja dan kelas 3A7 kembali di ground floor.

Antara lokasi yang menarik ialah kelas 2A7 dimana ada lorong di antara kelas dan gereja (di gunakan sekali sekala). Jadi hampir setiap hari segala aktiviti haram (pecah rahsia)di lakukan di situ seperti main bola (sampai pecah cermin pintu gereja), hisap rokok , lepak-lepak, bergaduh dan paling hampeh sekali tempat buang air kecil (2
nd floor jauh dari tandas).

Dan lorong itu juga di kongsi bersama dengan jiran sebelah kami (A8-A10) maka bertambah meriah aktiviti di lorong tersebut.
Untuk pengetahuan semua di hujung 2nd floor (selepas kelas 2A10) ni juga mempunyai sebuah asrama untuk pelajar yang jauh sebelum di pindah kan ke Asrama berpusat di Anderson. Sekarang aku tak tahu apa dah jadi dengan bilik tersebut.

Kembali semula dengan kisah kelas A7 ini dengan pengenalan guru kelas iaitu Pn Yip Seng Chong (1A7), Pn Amnah (2A7) dan Pn Noorshimah (3A7). Antara ketiga-tiga guru kelas aku ni Pn Noorshimah antara yang best sebab cantik (hihihii), lembut orang yer dan paling best sebab dia bagi perhatian kat aku dan offer aku untuk ajar BI (tapi aku tolak sebab jauh umah dia).

Haa Pn Yip pulak kami (budak A7) perasan setiap hari mesti pakai baju fesyen lain dan tak pernah kami nampak pakai baju yang sama dalam masa 2 bulan (banyak baju dia).

Pn Amnah pula aku kategori kan cikgu biasa saje kerana tiada kenangan indah yang kami dapat daripada dia kecuali cubitan maut hikmat kelapan menjadi igauan setiap kali tak buat kerja rumah.

Ada satu kes yang tak best berlaku pada Pn Noorshimah dalam kelas kami bila dia merajuk keluar kelas sambil menangis sebab ada classmate aku lawan cakap dia. Terpaksa le aku (ketua kelas masa tu) dengan classmate (lupa sapa) pergi bilik guru pujuk Pn Noorshimah (ayat power beb).

Itu antara kenangan yang tak boleh aku lupa first time aku pujuk perempuan (sekarang ayat pujuk lagi power). Cukup la sampai sini aku mengumpat pasal cikgu kelas aku takut tak berkat pulak ilmu yang diberi.

Jadi aku nak mengumpat pasal kawan-kawan kelas aku pulak. Kawan-kawan kelas aku ni pelbagai kaum, melayu, cina, india dan ada seorang bangsa baba dan nyonya dalam kelas aku. Kelas aku ni boleh dikatakan susah nak di kawal (termasuk le aku) dari segi nakal dan samseng maklum la masing –masing nak tunjuk jaguh .

Jadi pergaduhan, perselisihan paham, mencarut, mencuri, vandalisme terhadap peralatan sekolah dan macam macam lagi tak boleh di elakkan lagi bagaikan isi dengan kuku. Jadi suasana pembelajaran tu menjadi tegang sehingga boleh menjejaskan keputusan peperiksaan.

Walau bagaimanapun terdapat jugak muafakat dan aktiviti bersama kami lakukan. Antaranya adalah bersukan (tak pernah jadi jaguh) dan kawad hormat sukan tahunan (tak pernah menang pun). Itu adalah sedikit sebanyak yang dapat aku singkap kan mengenai kelas A7. Mungkin kawan-kawan yang lain sama ada di kelas yang sama atau kelas lain menambah kan lagi cerita yang ada disini untuk artikel seterusnya.

Di sini seperti biasa aku sertakan gambar-gambar kelas A7 untuk tatapan semua semoga kenangan kekal abadi.

Artikel memori kelas Sc5 tungguuuuuuuuuu……

Unity in School




Some of our old boys were told by the current student that unity among races in school is not in good condition. Students prefer to be with their friends who share the same colour and faith.Are we going to see SMI students who will leave the school confined themselves with their friends of their own races?

Have we asked ourselves, do we have the opportunity to meet with our Malay, Indian and Chinese friends again after graduating from SMI?

The problem with the students particularly daily schools students is that they are so impatience to step out from the gate of the school. They are eager to be a man when actually they are not ready in becoming a man. After SPM exam they usually shouted MERDEKA!!! What Merdeka? The road is long and many winding turn ahead waiting for you. The journey of your new life is just begin.

As the results of this non perseverance, a lot of SMI students including those who are now an old boys seems to forget about their school and their school mates. They think that they are not associated or have no links with the alma mater. That is the reality.

This can be proven when one of our friends here said that he had once asked his older brother who is also a Michaelian about his school mates whether his brother had still keep in touch with them. The answer is none. The worse is he even hard to remember his friends from the other races. Ahmad lupa Muthu and Muthu pun lupa sama itu Ah Meng. That is the fact. And this is still happening even after 50 years of our nation independence.

How to overcome the cancer in this Malaysian society? We already told the current student that if it is true that it is hard for the SMI students nowadays to do as what the batch of 96 did, there is no other way for them but to unite and contacting each other the moment you were no longer the boys.

Recently, when few of us had our "teh tarik session" on the eve of Deepavali, we discussed about the unity during 1996, our graduation year. We talked about the negative side or evil side of our batch and how that evil stories turned to be a positive one. Students from our batch used to against the school regulations. Fighting, abusive words uttered to the teachers, came late to school, did not wear name tag, absent and lost in action from the school, smoking and others.

There were many stories but there were two occasions that were so important which reflects the true spirit of multiracial and togetherness among Michaelians, although the act of the incident were not approved by the school authority as it may affect the students at that time. Even the author of this blog had forgotten about this incident. Believe it or not the author was actually at the scene of the incident. It may not appropriate to be told here. Let bygone be bygone. Let the stories fade away.

The current student if they read this article may think that it is OK if we against the school regulations as the old boys had done it before.
Come on brothers..the bad stories such disobey the school regulations are not to encourage you to become a bad boy. In studies we did well. Those days we just being naughty which is in line with our teen spirit. We must not cross the limit. Do not make yourself to be expelled from the school. Finish your studies in SMI with flying colours in academically or in sports and co-curriculum.

During our days if it is for the sake of SMI, the students will unite and do whatever for the name of the school including protecting our brothers whether he is a Malay, Indian or Chinese. You do not mess with SMI students and if one of our brothers in arms were harmed, we will retaliate by doing the necessary to protect them because "they ain't heavy, they are our brothers". (listen to the first song of this blog from The Hollies to understand the meaning of the phrase).


So...is it so difficult to unite in school and after school???? Only we have the answer and that answer will lead us to which path that we will take.
