Memories of RECSAM-1985
It gives me a profound pleasure to recall the memories during my short stay in PENANG, Malaysia in 1985, when I had the opportunity to participate in a RECSAM course.
The message delivered by Mr. Poon Poh Kong, the Director of SEAMEO RECSAM at the time, was deeply rooted and is still fresh in my mind. The participants in this course include not only those who come from the SEAMEO countries of Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand, but also one from Nepal, me. The Director gracefully assured the participants that there are no strangers in RECSAM, only friends who have not met before. The message of Mr. Poon Poh Kong expressed the firm belief that the bond of friendship, both national and international would be alive and grows in strength in the future, when one is back in their respective countries. This would indeed help to foster the friendship among and bring back fond memories of our stay at RECSAM.
