Old Boys Weekend 2008 Programmes

The Old Boys Weekend ® 2008

The Malay College Kuala Kangsar

April 18-20, 2008

The Old Boys’ Weekend, or OBW® for short, is an annual homecoming event for the old boys of the Malay College Kuala Kangsar (MCKK). The weekend is usually filled with games between the old boys and the students as well as teachers of the College. There are also other activities such as a forum; career talks; a dinner and musical show; and other fares. The old boys enjoyed the weekend (without their families) and re-lived their experiences during the school days years ago. They played their favourite games, eat at their favourite joints, stayed at the old dormitories, and passed their times by telling old stories of their escapades during their times in College. Those who have been to the OBW® will usually look forward to go to the next one!
