Paip SeKolah : The Thirst Was History

Far better than Pepsi-Cola : it was cool, refreshing and clear.  And F-O-C and F-O-S too (free-of-charge,and free-of-sugar)

Just reminiscing my primary school days, when after a PE lesson or a game of football, we kids made a beeline for the solitary standpipe in the school compound, and got our thirsty throats quenched.

No SWEAT for us to gulp down this unadulterated H-TWO-O; just opened our mouths big big, and turned on the tap handle, and the thirst was history.

My late mum cautioned me against drinking straight from the tap for the fear of water-borne diseases.  She always made me carry a bottle of boiled water from home.  But….drinking from Paip Sekolah was a totally different experience.  I never told her.
