My spotlight-shy friend, who brought us his yearly review mentioned in "point-form" the other day, came back with another SMS which he texted me days ago... (P.S: Those in GREEN are what he texted, while whatever mentioned in the brackets are my take of the events)

Next year will be GCE 'O' level for S.League.

    (Remember those days at the start of the S.League when the fans flocked in see what's in store for us?)

    (The economic crisis that made all to tighten their belt with the 20% pay cut across the board)
  • 4th&5th coming up.
    (Things are starting coming up as suggested.)

  • 6th K2 in 2001,started to have extra rounds to prepare for Primary,teachers from Manchester & Liverpool came to teach us.
