It's time of the year again when old boys of MCKK took off from their weekend routines to congregate @ their beloved alma mater in Kuala Kangsar for an annual event ; the Old Boys Weekend. Several games were played, witnessing the champions of the yesteryears (ex- & retired champions.. heheh ) took the pitch against the young and fresh blood of the present boys in the name of brotherhood. Though hilarious and at times comical, those old hands still seemed to have what it takes to give the present boys hard time in most of the games…Well, it’s not everyday you can see datuks and tan sris playing just like school-kids, isn’t it?


What made this year’s Old Boys Weekend extra special was the inclusion of the annual Malay College – Vajiravudh College ( MC – VC ) of Thailand friendly rugby tournament into the annual OBW. Novelist Anthony Burgess alias John Burgess Wilson, the English teacher at the College during the mid Fifties, once commented that sports, and rugby in particular, had become an obsession at the institution.( Tan Sri Ahmad Abdullah ). The traditional match between MCKK All Blacks and VC Dancing Thais is an annual tournament whereby each college took turns every other year to host either in Kuala Kangsar or in Bangkok and this year, MCKK played host. How the game turned out? Hmmmmmm….. well, like usual!


As always, in the evening after the annual dinner, there will be a concert performed by the old boys, present boys and teachers. Playing in bands or singing songs, each year the historical Hargreaves Hall will be ‘forced’ to witness talented and not-so-talented doctors, engineers and lawyers belting out songs to entertain the crowd. Unfortunately this year as the beloved hall is undergoing major renovation works, the night’s concert had to be shifted to our physics’ lab building nearby the hall fronting the Prep School’s field. Nevertheless, everyone still enjoyed the concert under the stars thanks to the Thoroughbreds, a band from the batch of ’86 who played the night’s tune.


It was a fun weekend, but nevertheless tiring! especially as yours truly was involved at the mcobafutsal’05’s promotion booth. Really hoped to go back again in the years to come...

Till then, here are some shots of the weekend! Enjoy!
