Gambar gambar lama membawa kenangan manis. Rasanya gambar lama dalam album lebik memberi nilai daripada simpang dalam computer. Pegang bukr album pun dah rasa lain

Dear Pak Cik,
In time my albums were all in tatters and the colours of the prints faded.The negatives were all mixed up. I then switched to coloured slides. After a few years the slides had now got mouldy and began to get spoiled. I'm having them scanned and stored in an external drive in separate folders. In the meantime I would select a few at a time and make blog entries where there are narrations to explain when and where.
