Google Earth’s Snapshot Of My Life

Even though it’s been out for a while, apparently I just found out that Google Earth recently updated their maps…to show you detailed pictures of good ol’ KL. Well…it’s not really that updated. It turns out that the map is actually an imagery of say the middle of the year 2004 because there are a lot of things in there that hasn’t showed up yet even though I know it’s been built or torn down.

Being that I’m like thousands of miles away in the middle of nowhere, I thought I’d take a stroll down memory lane. So because I have nothing better to do, I present to you now the Educational History of Edrei.

See the red circle? See it?
That is my neighbourhood. That red circle is my house. My house is nice. My house says hello.

A little further away from my house
My old primary school. It brings back memories. Like head being hit by a rock and being kicked. Ouch. Painful memories. Don’t want to remember them anymore. Angry already.

A little closer to home
My old high school. It changed everything in my life. It made me the person I am today. A hardened melancholic with lots of scars. Don’t want to remember them anymore. Angry already.

A little closer to home...again
College life. Exactly as I imagined. Free to be everything I could be. Brings back memories of primary school without the rock on head and being kicked. It was a good time. Not angry already.

A little taste of heaven and hell
The next level. It was bittersweet. Mostly sweet. Then again love always is sweet. Until it becomes bitter. Hmmm…angry already.

A blank slate
No memories here. They moved the old college here. Thank God I’m not there anymore. Don’t go there. Really.

Very very very far away from home
Where I am now. So far out in nowhere that Google doesn’t even have a satellite image of it. There are good times. There are bad times. Can be angry. Can be happy also. Cannot decide which to be. So I shall be angry to be happy. Or happy to be angry. Don’t know which. But glad I made it this far anyway.

That pretty much sums it up the history lesson for now. It’s nice to know that some things will always be there. I just wonder what other things I can dig of next. Maybe I’ll see if I can find her house from here. I wonder if that’s considered illegal or not? Go figure.

  1. Google Earth sure brings back memories. Maybe in time we’ll get super hi-res in all of Malaysia. They say you can count the number of leaves floating on the pool in some parts of the USA. That’s pretty cool.

  2. Only KL and some parts of JB unfortunately. It’s good enough that we have a hi-res image of KL and until Malaysia has it’s own GPS satellite that spies on us all. We won’t have those super hi-res pics. So sad. So sad.

  3. i read somewhere that there was a guy who wanted to sue some satellite imaging company for showing pictures which included the location of his house. err. the fact that i don’t know any details really reflects the way i read huh? lol. just don’t start looking for other ppl’s houses, circling them and posting them on the net…and you’ll be fine i guess.

    weren’t you in sedaya? so those pics of your college are of the old campus in ss2 right? ooer. so cool. *squints* but cannot make out where it is laaaaaaaaaaa…

  4. SS2? Jax, you’re way off. Sedaya was in Cheras which was nowhere near SS2. That’s probably why you can’t make out where it was.

  5. penguin angel, i’m surprised to see u post up the primary school’s pic, which sadly bring back the bad memories and pain.

    hey, you’re posting the location of my house at the same time too. 🙂 don’t know if you realise that….

    Smile a bit, i don’t make you angry….at least, I hope.

  6. Is it just me, or is your high school Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Melawati? If so…

    Holy cow. It’s a small world.

    I was from there as well. Loved the place. Total pandemonium during my years. And we had a stupid headmistress by the name of Pn Rohani.

  7. Meekie: Angry or not, still part of my life. Can’t deny that for sure. 🙂

    Zafran: SMKTM man. Under Pn Tengku and the hell bitch Pn Rohani. Still remember the day we actually stood up to her when she wanted to change the entire school’s co-ed system. Drew the damn line at the stairs bit.

  8. eh sedaya used to be in ss2 ok. then only moved to cheras. now it’s called what arr? some international university college thing right? SUCI? ooer. suci. muahahaahahaha.

    what stairs thing?

  9. aiyoo….if penang is not there in hi-res, i can dream abt kulim. wont even bother then. 😛
