Nostalgia

I started my TESL degree in UPSI Tanjong Malim in 2000. I graduated in 2002. During my time in UPSI, I was staying in Bernam Baru and I drove to the university.

Yesterday, I was on my way back from Shah Alam and I purposely dropped by Tanjong Malim. I wanted to meet my coursemate but unfortunately she was teaching in the school. So I made the decision to drive in the UPSI campus.

This place is new to me. I love those handicrafts.

Here's my favorite building. I loved to spend my free time in the library.

What's this? It's a modern-looking building!

I used to love attending lectures in this 'Bangunan Cancelor'. Because all the lectures rooms were air-conditioned. Furthermore, the lecturers' rooms were situated there.
I suppose it's still the same inside.

My other course mate was wondering why 
I posted so many UPSI's pictures
on facebook.
He asked, 'Nostalgia ka?'

Would you visit your school/university/college?

  1. Your alma mater has developed a lot! Really nostalgic to walk down memory lane, right? Yes, of course I would visit the place I studied in before.

  2. i think i will not purposely go there but if i am ever nearby or passed by, i think why not just drop by for a "nostalgia" visit?? hahaha.. i think surely brings back a lot of good (or probably also bad) memories when you are in there again.. it will surely make you feel different being there as a visitor from being a student back then.. :)

    1. The Chancellor building was new when I was there. The modern building must be an addition recently.

  4. Really bring back lots memories.. Glad you were able to make a turn into your uni..

    If you ask me, I would like to visit my college, but not my primary/secondary school.. I know I'm weird, coz most people would LOVE to visit their primary school. I did not have a happy childhood during my primary/secondary school days, thus, it did not give me sweet memories.

    I always passed by my secondary school when I drive in KL, it's located in Pudu (Pudu English Secondary Girls School), but I don't feel like I want to go in there..

    1. Wow, you graduated in 2002? That was like 12 years ago! The visit sure bring back a lot of nice memories!

      I graduated in 2007, I miss UM very much! Had been thinking to go back there one day!

    2. Now I visit UM very often because my wife is doing her Masters there. Nothing much has changed and they really need to repaint the walls besides putting more traffic lights to ease the congestion. I saw the huge lake and believed many couples held hands there. Aha!

      wow, TM really spends some of his time in UM.

  11. Hello, I'm a fellow TESL-ian too and graduated in 1999 :) I revisited my alma matter many times and each time I went, I saw more new buildings and less greenery... how sad.
