Keat Hwa(吉华)is a well known school in the city of Alor Setar, Kedah. Currently, Keat Hwa consists total of 6 schools; three primary schools: Keat Hwa (H),Keat Hwa (K) and Keat Hwa (S), two secondary schools: Keat Hwa 1 and Keat Hwa 2, and one private secondary school, Keat Hwa (P).

This year, Keat Hwa will celebrate its 100 years of existence. A centenary celebration committee had been setup under the Keat Hwa Alumni Organization and had its official launching on 31st December 2008. For this anniversary, a series of celebration will be organized the whole year, culminating with events from 28th till 31st July 2011.

The celebrations include a music concert by ex-Keat Hwa students who are well known in the entertainment field, a Teachers day celebration with the participation of 6 schools, publication of books written by ex-Keat Hwa students, grand parade during the peak celebration, a grand dinner which the organisers expecting to bring 2500 people together and all sorts of Chinese traditional cultural activities.

One of the most attention-catching events, is the release of the song album for Keat Hwa Centenary Celebration.

The Keat Hwa Centenary Song Album consists of seven songs. All the songs have been composed and produced by ex-Keat Hwa students from all over place either in the country or overseas. The purpose of the album is to bring up the spirit of Keat Hwa Centenary Celebration and to attract more Keat Hwa students and ex-students to participate in the celebration.

'Only Us' (只有我们)is one of the songs that will be included in the album. The song was composed by two ex-Keat Hwa students: Tan Jiun Wuu (陈君武)who is currently a videographer cum video editor at Malaysiakini and Tan Kang Wei(陈康伟)who is currently doing his Biological Science PhD course in Singapore. 'Only Us' was composed during 2005 as the theme song of St. John Ambulance Malaysia, SMJK Keat Hwa Division (St. John of Keat Hwa) 45th anniversary. The song was became an icon to St. John of Keat Hwa and was kept on passing down through the years. The song's popularity was because of it being able to build up the spirit of the members of St. John of Keat Hwa. Both of the composers were members of St. John of Keat Hwa too.

St. John of Keat Hwa has a tradition where every year there will be at least a new song composed by its own members to the theme song of the annual activities. Unfortunately, all the songs can only be recorded in rough and low quality demo due to the lack of financial support and professional knowledge in recording.

As the Keat Hwa Centenary Celebration will release the album, 'Only Us' was selected to be recorded because of its meaningful lyrics and surging melody which matches the objective of the album, which is to raise the spirit of the Keat Hwa Centenary Celebration.

The song was recorded in a production house in Alor Setar and 14 people including members and ex-members of St. John of Keat Hwa took part in the recording of the song. The song is a little contribution from St. John of Keat Hwa to Keat Hwa Centenary Celebration.

The album is expected to be released mid June, 2011.
