Memories are made of these...

JY and I were just laughing at some old photos of mine tonight.....ahh the memories, highschool seems like a life time ago. I look at these photos and I almost don't recognise the person looking back at me. Some of these pictures are a bit embrassing ...but what the heck!

Left to Right: 1997(Yr 10 Formal), 1998 (KMH formal), 1998 (Kingsgrove Formal)

1999 (My Yr 12 Formal)

Yr 10 1997 - My hair was sooo short! My Mum made my Yr 10 Formal dress and despite Marcus calling it a 'poo yellow' it was actually a lime green with 2 layers (shiny silk on the bottom and chiffon on the top). Wendy was at my house getting ready that day – would you believe our dates came to pick us up in a stretch limo??


KMH 1998 - Charley took me as his date but I can't find where I put the scanner to scan another photo. I remember getting my hair done for this and I wanted to cry at the salon because it was HUGE! I even caught a taxi home so no one would see me!


Kingsgrove 1998 - Jacky met my Mum for the first time when he came to pick me up to take me to his formal. Things went OK - Mum was always going to be difficult because she was annoyed that I was dating before finishing Uni (she'll hold it against me forever). She wasn't too sure about Jacky either, because he tragically had an undercut and she came to the conclusion that he must be in a gang??!?! Eventually she came around – it only took a few years!


Yr 12 Formal 1999 – You can’t see the dress clearly but it was by Lisa Ho (yes mum made it once again) it had a long train at the back and was made from 3 layers of silk (baby blue, an aqua colour and another blue at the bottom) finished with diamante straps. It was on this same night that I met DJ Ho , I didn't realise this until recently.

I was just going to say the guy in the year 10 photo looks very gangsta and a bit like Marcus...and then I read the description and it was! Sydney Tech represent!

Jas: longggg time ago.

Sophia: i wait for the day when you bring home your boyfriend.

Dj Ho: hahha yes I'm very good friends with quite a few of the Tech guys in the yr above me. Everyones grown up graduated and working. Did you graduate in 1999 or 2000?
