- Chaptet 23 15 May 1981 - The catch Can one recall the exact moment when one fell in love? It was an extremely humid afternoon. The Istana was dressed for mourning and the air was heavy with the scent of frangipani. The ceremony was to begin in the afternoon and already the driveway where the cortege would be traveling to the main gate was lined with scouts on both sides. After all the late President was a big supporter of them. James was feeling the heat. He had tried to stock up on fluids earlier but the weather was determined to make the occasion as physically challenging as possible. All the schools' scout troupes were activated for this solemn occasion. And despite the fact they were standing at ease under a patch of shady clove and rubber trees, the sun's merciless rays seemed to be able to penetrate through the foliage. James tried to swallow; he could feel the starting of the swirling and tried to steady himself ungainly. His vision began to cloud and his knees buckled and he felt himself falling... Tom who stood diagonally opposite James moved with a grace and speed and caught James before he hit the ground. James's eyes fluttered open in confusion and caught the vision of a concerned Tom leaning over him while in his arms Can one recall the exact moment when one fell in love? The answer - yes.

- Chapter 22 1 Dec 1983 - The confession Thaim Cai was glad that he had convinced James to head to their potential new school to take a look. It gave them some alone-time. Where he could daydream that they were out on a date. He stole a look at him. The wind ruffled James's hair but to Thiam Cai, all it did was to make James better looking even though he seemed to be somewhat preoccupied. These last few months of studying and training together had been like a dream he did not wish to wake up from. It was a dream that he would continue to build upon - where James suddenly realised he was in love with him, where they move to their own apartment, and they would happily ever after. He knew that the first step to that was to be honest and admit to James how he felt. But a big part of him worried... "Isn't it magnificent?" James spoke for the first time gazing at the stadium-like running track, "We can train here everyday instead of going to National Stadium." Thiam Cai cleared his throat nervously, "James..." "Thiam Cai, I really don't know what i would have done without you especially in the last few months. I feel like I can tell you anything..." Thiam Cai held his breath. "...I really need your advice...i think I'm in love with Tom."

- Chapter 21 25 Oct 1994 - The postcard The first time Josephine connected with a celebrity seemed like a lifetime away. She didn't even remember writing to Thomas Howell but 6 months later there was a postcard bearing his image in the mailbox. Maybe it was his agent or one of his publicity people who wrote back and sent the postcard but to a fifteen year old, that was nevertheless a big deal. That could possibly be the moment Josephine the journslist was born. What kind of role interest​s him? How challenging is it to be working in Hollywood? What was working with Steven Spielberg like? is he attached? She still had the postcard somewhere. One day maybe she might get to do that interview with him. "Jo the boss wants to speak to you."

- Chapter 19 15 Sept 1983 - The Bookmark Thiam Cai laid out his latest acquisitions on the floor. Even though he had yet to decide on James's birthday gift, he simply couldn't resist these bookmarks when he saw them at the school bookshop. He wondered if it would be too much if he included them. After all, he just wanted James to know that he was happy that they were friends. Am i lying to myself, he wondered. Is that what i really want? How does he feel about me? And is this the right time to be thinking about all this with 'O' levels just round the corner? Thiam Cai knew that he did not do things halfway. When he took up athletics, he trained everyday. When he decided to take up Physics and Chemistry as his core subjects, he put in extra hours. It was always 100% or nothing. He knew that he could not just keep on waiting. He set his lips into a determined line - he would tell James how he felt immediately after the exams.

- Chapter 18: 26 Nov 1982 - The connection ”Brooke Shields looks so perfect in the movie," sighs James. Mei Mei didn't quite know what to make of his comment. If this was a date, that would be a quite a inappropriate, and possibly infuriating thing for him to say. But if this wasn't a date... then what had she just spent the last two hours doing? "Let's get a drink here." He stepped into the cool interiors of McDonald's​ located just downstairs of Lido and quickly secured a table for both of them. Ten minutes later after two Big Macs, one large fries, one Apple pie and two Cokes, James fixed a steely look on Mei Mei. "So are you keen on Tom?" She was completely thrown by his question. Ok so this definitely was not a date but shaping up to be one strange outing. "Look he is a really good guy and you're..." He paused and then sighed, "... you're really lucky." Then it hit her. She smiled and said, "Tell him to listen to Radio One tomorrow at 9.10pm."

- Chapter 17: 20 Nov 1982 - The Rum Balls "Hey i better return these to you before i forget." Tom handed over an Oriental Emporium paper bag. James winced slightly. "Can you find a more obiang paper bag?" Tom laughed and smacked James on the back. "What's more important is what's in the bag." James furrowed his brow and extracted two scouts books., "Why don't you keep these? Scouting is more your thing. Probably should have joined the choir " "You would have gotten them to perform Like a Virgin," Tom teased, his eyes twinkling. "You know me so well," James finally smiled, "Nonetheless a unform group looks better on my school record." "Not everything is about grades and getting into the university you know." "You obviously have not met my father. Why do you think I took up althetics as well?" "By the way, i got your favourite rum balls​to thank you for helping me at the campfire." James sat uo straight. "Did she phone you?" Tom shook his head, "Maybe she's​ not interested." "She's an idiot if she is not." James stole a glance at him. Tom looked away and quickly interrupted, "You've not taken out everything." James paused for a second and peered into the bag. His eyes widened as big as the rum balls inside the bag. "They"re from..." "Hans." At that moment, James made up his reluctant mind to help him.

- Chapter 16: 26 Nov 1982 - The call Mei Mei hunted high and low for the key. She glared at the television set which seemed to be just quietly mocking her. The wooden doors of the long Telefunken television set was determined to deny her from her afternoon of The Young and the Restless It's not fair, she thought furiously, how can they lock up the tv again. It's not like i watch everything on tv. I mean i don't​ watch news. Maybe i should get them to get a new tv; one without doors so they can't lock it, she thought deviously. Oh my goodness, I'm beginning to think like Jill Abbott. Maybe i should pick a Christan name. The phone rang. She pounced on it so that it wouldn't wake her grandmother from her afternoon nap, "Oh hi James. What a nice surprise." Her eyes darted to the bedroom where her grandmother's snores could be heard, "OK but i get to pick the cinema and the movie."

- chapter 15: 20 Oct 1994 - Like a Prayer Josephine could hear the opening strains of the trumpets to the Rocky's theme as she turned towards the last stretch at MacRitchie Reservoir. As her Nikes pounded the hardened sandy ground, she imagined herself like a Gladiator racing for her life. One might think she was being chased but in her mind' eyes, it was she who was doing the chasing. As the music swelled to its crescendo, she exerted one final push and finished her 5km run with a skip and a hop. She slowed her pace and allowed herself deep intakes of air to stablise her breathing. Her daily runs had brought clarity and some relief from her rage. She glanced at her pink G -Shock and grimaced. The Madonna interview would begin in a few hours. She turned off her DiscMan and strayed to the side of the waters. The reservoir was tranquil, a sharp contrast to her internal emotions percolating within. For her own mental health, Josephine knew that she should not hang on her grudge. The interview was going to happen. After all it was not as if her boss would be stuck on the plane, unable to meet Madonna. Her Motorola suddenly rang. It was her sub-editor. "Jo, did you hear? The boss's flight couldn't land in London because of the smog and was rerouted to Dublin!!!!!" "Dublin?" "Exactly."

- Chapter 14: 14 May 2006 - The story book He popped into Thomas's​ room to tell him it was bedtime and was surprised to find him already in bed. "Hey buddy, are u asleep?" he whispered, his hand to turn off the light switch. "Daddy can you read me a story?" Thomas asked, his eyes optimistic. "Well it's past your bedtime​ buddy," he said gently. "Mommy used to read to me before i sleep." He felt his heart breaking into a thousand pieces and tried to steady his voice,"Why didn't you ask me this before?" Thomas was silent for a moment. "Because I didn't want you to miss Mommy. But today in class we were making cards for Mother's Day..." His voice wobbled a little, "...and I miss Mommy..." In one swift movement, he scooped up his son and held him tightly. After some time, he wiped the moisture off both their eyes and cupped his son's tiny face in his hands, "It's ok to miss Mommy. It shows that she was a big part in our lives. And I wants you to come to Daddy whenever you miss her. And we can miss her together ok buddy?" Thomas nodded. "Now which book do you want Daddy to read tonight?" Thomas pointed to an Enid Blyton book which had seen better days, "I like it when Mommy read Brer Rabbit." He smiled as he opened up the familiar book, "Once Brer Rabbit had a job to do...." He read till Thomas stuck his thumb into his mouth and closed his eyes If you enjoy this this, do LIKE & SHARE the post and the page :) watch out for tomorrow's ePIXode. www.facebook.com/pastpresentperfectSG #pastpresentperfect #iremembersg #sgmemories #sgmemoryproject #ilovethe80s #singapore #singaporehistory #sglife #singaporelife  #nostaglia #the80s #oldsingapore #sgmemory #story #stories #writerslife #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writing #writingcommunity #writings #writer #writers #creativewriting #words #past #wheniwasyoung #sgarts #booksactuallysg

- 27 Aug 1983 - The Campfire The fire crackled as a log dropped from the top of the log tower sending a bouquet of burning sparks into the darkened skies. Mei Mei wondered how the scouts managed to transform the basketball court into a firecamp site. She had been already been impressed when the fire was lit esrlier by a gadget that slided down a flying-fox contraption secured from the second floor of the nearby school block. As she stood together with her fellow Girl Guides surrounding the fire, readying to present their song item, her eyes caught someone staring at her. She had seen him earlier when their troop arrived and he was part of the welcome party. He smiled at her and clapped his hands in encouragement. She glanced away bashfully like all good Cedar girls did. After their performsnce, she stole a look in his direction but was disappointed that he was no longer there. "Hi I'm James, can you autograph my song book?" James asked, popping up from nowhere. She awkwardly scribbled something and passed him hers to do the same. The fire had cast a fiery glow litting all their excited faces. She scanned the crowd of scouts who had all stood up, getting ready to bid farewell to their guests. That guy seemed to have vanished into thin air, Mei Mei thought before turning around to collect the song book back from James. But James was no longer there. What was left was her song book on a bench with something planted on it. She picked it up in wonder and traced the woooden pattern on the woogle. A thought struck her and she quickly flipped the pages. True enough, there was an entry from James and besides it, another entry with s short message: You sang like an angel.

"Let's check the answers at the back and finish the remaining years' papers that we have not done," he suggested to Thiam Cai. "We don't have much time left before the exams." Thiam Cai brought out a tray with a plate of pineapple biscuits and two glasses of Sarsi, "Don't worry. We're on track with our revisions. Let's take a break." James threw down his pen in near exhausation, "Does it get easier? I feel like I'm going to explode." "We're all going to be fine," Thiam Cai soothingly. James smiled, and marveled at Thiam Cai's calm, "I'm glad that we are study buddies." Thiam Cai's face fell slightly, "I'm glad too," he said after a while.

And this guy which I got to do research on and had the pleasure to get to know as well as intro to the producers and project manager, is a real gem! Grateful to have met him and be his friend! If old is gold, he is the real proof, and I can only hope to be as dynamic as he is in life! His advice is always have good intentions, be sincere, and help whenever you can. #sgig #sg #oldisgold #igers #freelance #researcher #history #singapore #sghistory #educational #singaporehistory #sgarchives #video #youtube
