Graduation in Glasgow

I will be graduating again tomorrow :)
And when I say again, it's because I already had a graduation back in Glasgow (my final year was in Scotland :D) and tomorrow will be the 2nd graduation back in Malaysia :)

It's not like I've graduated with a degree the first time, and this time a PhD, although I wouldn't mind getting a PhD :P :P

It is really nice to be graduating in a foreign land with loads of friends around me :D
The following will be a mini-flashback of how graduation in Glasgow was like.

Meow and Renly entering the graduation hall (Barony Hall to be exact) as a graduand :)

The scenario in the hall upon the arrival of all the VIPs :)
While in the hall I squeezed time to snap a few pics with my Scottish friends :) This is Fiona! She's a lovely girl who hails from Edinburgh (the capital of Scotland) and she was a great host and brought me to Edinburgh Zoo :D

This is a picture of Fiona and I on a more casual occasion, having famous homemade ice-cream in St Andrews :)
Then here's David, Laura, Me, and another Laura (Laura's kind of a common name over

And here's a picture of Me, David and Fiona at the beach at St Andrews. Man, I miss those days :)

Not to forget Duncan who's absolutely cheeky and Keith (the hongkie in Scotland :P)

LOL.. that's Duncan as William Wallace ( the Scottish Hero :P or if you guys watched Braveheart, you guys would know William Wallace as Mel Gibson) and me as a Vampiress :P
Keith and I at the graduation ball :)

Okay, enough of reminiscing on the good times I had in Glasgow (maybe I should stick my ass down and write a summary of my year in Scotland, it'll be really nice to be browsing through the tonnes of pictures I accumulated over the year. If each picture I have is worth a pound, i'll be a rich girl.. LOL.

Back to the graduation in Glasgow :)
While outside the hall, we took all sorts of silly pictures, for example this below..

We're all Harry Potter wannabes :P Actually it's because it was drizzling that day (typical gloomy rainy Scottish weather to mark our graduation day) but it was a day to be remembered.
Ps: Note how the guys are wearing kilts? Cute aren't they? (the kilt la..not the guys :P)

Sad people are we because of the bad weather. Look at how messy our hair is :S

My "family" for a year in Glasgow (with Choong Lii missing in action).
From left to right: KenKen(Vern Xi), Meow, Jay Bee (Cheh Hsia), Cucu (Chin Yeong), Kennethsaur, Baby Renly, Choon Hau (the stick insect), and the not so shy Poh Yee :P

I super like this picture because of the various facial expressions we have while "forcing" Ah Ken's younger bro who's looking smart in his cap and light blue top with a vest :) [Ah Ken: too bad u're longer as cute as ur bro la...:P]

A mini-group picture of my batchmates in P107 :) Yes, we'll be good-looking pharmacists after fulfilling the 1st year as a pre-registered pharmacist (PRP) with the Msian government :p

Alrights, that about sums up my graduation in Glasgow :)
Next post will be on the graduation in Malaysia itself :)

Thank you micheal for the long and absolutely heartfelt comment!!

I totally agree with you about pictures. They do tell a million words especially when you take time to go into every single detail :)

Haha~ HP books :) I have them, but I think I stopped reading upon the 4th installment :P

LOL~ you? geeky? I don't believe it, but if you were, then it is indeed a lucky thing that you lost them :P but then again it'll be fun if you still had some to laugh at when u get older :P
