Bangunlah Puteri oh Bangun

Ada yang komen lirik lagu versi BM ni dah berubah. Tak macam yang kita nyanyi dulu. I gave you a task to find me the old one.
Hasilnya, Azie, Min dan Shera telah bergotong royong berhempas pulas memikirkan the old lyric. In Red.

Thanks ladies!


Versi Bahasa Melayu


Kitalah puteri harapan bangsa
Berkumpul dari seluruh tanahair
Menuntut ilmu tekun dan usaha
(Hadapi cabaran tabah dijiwa) Cabaran kita semua

(Bangunlah puteri bangun) Bangunlah puteri oh bangun
(Harumkan nama sekolah) Harum nama sekolah
(Majulah puteri maju) Majulah puteri oh maju
(Bela bangsa dan negara) Bela bangsa negara

(Cabaran hadapi dengan tabah) Berpandulah Rukun Negara
(hidup berpandu rukun negara) Amalan kita semua
Ke hadrat Allah kita berserah,
(tentu berjaya jika berusaha) Tentu kita berjaya

(Bangunlah puteri bangun) Bangunlah puteri oh bangun
(Harumkan nama sekolah) Harum nama sekolah
(Majulah puteri maju) Majulah puteri oh maju
(Bela bangsa dan negara) Bela bangsa negara

English Version

We are the hopes and the pillars of the nation
Gathered from each state throughout the nation
To study diligently and to gather knowledge
Facing challenges patiently with heart and soul

Arise always puteri arise
To brighten the school Seri Puteri
Onwards march puteri onwards
Loyal to your people and the country

We face tribulation with patience
And we live by the Principles of Rukun Negara
And our trust in God in whom we do surrender
Surely success will follow with perseverance

Arise always puteri arise
To brighten the school Seri Puteri
Onwards march puteri onwards
Loyal to your people and the country


Why am i making this post?
So that all you sspians reading this could sing-along and remember the good old days.

Tempohari saya dan bunda ke masjid mengerjakan solat tarawikh. At the entrance, bertembung dengan this kind smiling lady who told us to be careful, lantai licin. Then I saw the paperbag she was carrying. It says, "Seri Puteri Cyberjaya". I pointed it to my mom excitedly. Since she was a bit too old to be an old girl, my mom quickly assumed maybe her daughter went to SSP.

Dalam masjid, kebetulan mak duduk sebelah that kind lady. Mom casually asked, if she was from Seri Puteri. The lady said, yes. Mom introduced her to me. She looked especially happy when I said I was from Kolam Ayer, not Cyberjaya. The bond is there. We walked the same hallways, the same canteen, under the same trees...

Then...


Kind Lady: Awak ingat saya?
Me: (mengingat bulan Ramadhan lagi lah tak boleh menipu maka...) Err...maaf, tak
Kind Lady: Saya bekas pengetua.
Me: Owh! (gubraksss)


Of course I don't remember her. She was there until 1992. I was there from 1995 to 1999. Aci kan?
After tarawikh we sat together for a while, swapping stories. She especially wants to know what I am up to these days, said she is always interested to what happened to her students. Well, okay so I wasn't technically her student, but she's former headmistress, that makes me her student all right.

I'm sorry I didn't get her name. I feel bad about having to ask, so I didn't. After years of looking up at the wall where photos of all the former headmistress were hanged, I should have at least some recollections of their names, I thought. But I don't. And google doesn't help much either.

Maybe I would see the kind lady at the masjid again, one of these days. I hope so. Moments like that, makes my heart swell with pride for being an SSPian.

Once an SSPian, forever an SSPian.
(Shera suruh tambah ayat ni...Forever SSP Kolam Ayerian. hahaha!)
