In my Poly days, many activities took place on "The Lawn" (where Colours is today, in front of the library).
I remember a talentime was held there and a food eating contest! My friend, Tan Beng Kuan, and I were crazy enough to sign up for the latter. It turned out we were the only team of 2 girls (the rest were teams of 2 boys and one other team of a boy and a girl)!
It was too late to back out, so there we were, gobbling up food so quickly that right after the contest ended, I threw up all that I had downed!
Still, my love for food remained and I went on to be a food scientist!
