阿東伯與集郵

  阿東伯在十歲時,跟隨做牧師的父親在加帛定居幾年時,培養了集郵票的興趣,一直到如今。他說當時都是去垃圾桶去找這些人家丟掉的郵票呢!
  隨著email及電子網絡的流行,他有點擔心郵票從此會真成為古董了!
  圖示他在六十年代收藏的肯尼迪總的郵票及相關資料,他都保存很好!

何家模也是牧師的兒子,對於收集舊錢幣有一手,都是他與年輕人一起合影,這些砂拉越舊錢幣都是少年人從未見過的!噫,砂拉越怎么會出現英女皇?

不少年輕人對於收集郵票仍然很有興趣的

阿東伯是在下的中學時的英文老師,在部落上對他沒大沒小希不被見怪!

請問阿東伯是曾經當中學老師的Wong Siew Tung嗎﹖

Mr/Ms 0ya,
Pardon me to address you this way because I do not know your actual name, and hopefully after you have read this, you will somehow contact me and let me know your name if you don't mind.

My email address: wongmoo@hotmail.com.

Yes, you are quite right. I was a secondary school teacher for almost 30 years: first at Ling Chu Ming Secondary School, then at Peabody Demonstration High School, Nashville, Tennessee, USA, and after returning to Sarawak, at Kai Chung (Bintagor, Rosli Dhoby and finally at Chung Hua secondary schools (all of Sibu).

Of course I will be just too happy to know who you are, and perhaps, you may like to give me a ring at 016-8941326 or 084-332869 if you do not have time to contact me via my email address.

Thank you and God bless.

Dear Mr. Wong:

Time flies. But your appearance never changed. You looked the same as before (26 years ago). I remembered you were leading the stamp collecting club in school (thus I was quite sure the picture must be you). Your class on physical geography was fantastic. You showed us your nice slides taken in New Zealand and USA. You opened up my eyes to let a boy from the rubber garden in Sibu to join the world. I still remembered you showed us the slides about your university (I forgot the name or location, but you mentioned that the name has since then been changed). I thus "dreamed" of going to study in US, but it never happened. I went to a different place....

Mr. Wong, I am sure you don't remember me (when I met up with one of my form teachers several years ago, he did not remember me...). But I remember you well as one of my teachers. I will write you a separate e-mail in these days.

Mr Oya,

Let me begin by guessing from what you have written that you are one of the teenagers in my class then. Yes, time really flies. I am now a pensioner and have retired from teaching in government school for 7 years. I suppose you must have your own family by now.

Thank you for all your comments. I really enjoy reading, recalling and reflectig on them.

Do write to me via my email and let me know who you are. I will be eagerly waiting to hear from you.However, it is sort of strange that (I just have this feeling.) you neither provide me your name here nor give me your own email address.

I think we should not write of our own too much here but in our emails later. It is not an apppropriate place for us to do so. Agree?

Hope to hear from you soon and let us keep in contact.

Wong Siew Tung 说...

0ld At Heart,
Whoever you are, but I just want to say thank you for your timely encouragement. You know, for a number of times I have tried to give up this activity, but somehow friends like you would happen to either tell me verbally or, like you, write to me and give me a lot of encouragement to stay on.

By the way, do you collect stamps?

Do you mind if you contact me at wongmoo@hotmail.com just let me know who you are?

I will appreciate that a lot.

Siew Tung

Wong Siew Tung 说...

Lala,

Yes, Lala. You are right.

I taught at Sedaya College Sarawak, Sibu Branch before I came to teach at Methodist Pilley Institute and the Methodist Theological School, Sibu and I am
still there at both institutions.

And that was from end of year 1999, 2000, through 2001 for consecutive 2 full years teaching pre-Univerity English because English is may niversity major.

Just out of my curiosity, may I know who you are, and I suppose you must be one that I should not have forgotten you because you still remember me well.

Contact me, please at my email- wongmoo@hotmail.com and we can share our living experiences.

Wouldn't you?

Thanks for your comment on this page.

best wishes,

Siew Tung
