NST Reunion - The Montage

And so the NST 'exes' had a grand reunion in Tropicana Golf & Country Club Sunday. I wasn't there (had a prior engagement to attend to) but I did join the pre-event 'do'; a visit to Balai Berita two days before.

The editorial floor is no longer what it used to be. Today the entire place is so sanitised. And calm. The silence is deafening.

The old editorial floor was messy, reeked of stale smoke, and with a 'pasar malam' atmosphere.

Noisy it certainly was; the banging of the typewriters, the endless ringing of the telephones. And everybody seemed to shout and swear at the same time.

Former NST pixman Loh had put together the following montage in honour of the ex-scribes. Check out yours truly.. the hair...!
