What does spring cleaning mean to you?
For me it's just basically unnecessary work. Time which could be better spent doing other things. =)

I've had to sort of spring clean a little. Reason being mainly because my family have moved and I have yet to move and there are still some things here that I haven't cleared out as well.

So I started cleaning out my drawers and I found quite a lot of things that I've forgotten.
Old mail from friends, weird birthday gifts (witchdoctor bones), my old G-Shock watch.. man those were the days of super large wrist-watches, cards from my cousin.. even found my old prom tickets.

"22nd December 1997
Sarawak Ballroom,
Shangri-La Hotel,"


what else did I find.. hmm.. my baby teeth.. I used to keep them.. lol found 6 of them.
some commemorative badges - "Lawatan sambil belajar ke taman negara malaysia - 16-19 Ogos 1991"
keychains, old namecards, old pictures.. (wow I've put on a bit of weight.. =P)
old nametags (mine was gold because I was a "pengawas pusat sumber" which literally meant resource center monitor. You see in my high school, librarians and us were different. We handled the multimedia aspect of the school resources. Projectors, AV systems, PA systems were all under our purview. =)

ermm.. magnets for a very ambitious geography project. Solar system with planets that could turn freely (2 magnets). That didn't work out too well and we went with a volcano instead. =)

old birthday cards from ppl that have fallen on the wayside. Scouting memorabilia, old notebooks with song lyrics, an old address book from Form1. I had pretty cool gadgets actually when I was younger. Stuff that my dad's Japanese suppliers would give.

hmm.. I even found a wood carving tool set.. old letters.. hmm do ppl throw away old letters?
Found a letter from OJA.. it was hilarious.. she would say something and then the next part would be what she thought I'd say which was only semi-right I think.. And asking me how to fend of unwanted attention.. OJA if you're reading this, I'm gonna bring the letter over for you to read. =)
Ah.. the days of snail mail.. before e-mail took over. before phone calls were so damn cheap and etc.. =)

so many memories
so many lost friends

Hmmm... well, you lose some friends and you gain some others. All part of growing up, right? :)
