2017G Diary


April of Sans Blossom

Dated 2017G Apr 6 Thu 9 Rejab 1438H

MANGO turned up in pasar-malam, but the price was not any nearer to the usual 3kg/10rm. The over-ripe banana was forever demanded for making the cekodok.

NA was in Sg Merab home during the weekend of the first of the Apr month. The et seq img was captured at KOPI TIME while taking her to KLIA en route to TGG, Apr 2 Sun early hr.



The Bridge-2 Penang

Dated 2017G Apr 12 Wed 15 Rejab 1438H

Apr 7 Fri, DRV to PENANG in BKD 4-beranak. CB, ASRI, and their UMI. ZIDNI et al, and ALYA-FARHAN were joining, the latter by air from JB. MUZANI et al, hosting. The mission, to attend the walimah of En Karim in Bayan Lepas the next day Apr 8 Sat. En Karim was such a nice Penangite who almost never miss my invitation since knowing him in 2008 which led to the 2009 wedding trip, my last trip to Penang, that this time I am greatly obligated to attend. There were other significance too. One was NA's mini-reunion with her old KIK-UM buddies who work in the area. But the time was so short, we could only reflect. Penang was a place every one wanted to remember once they have been there.



From Fifty Years Ago

Dated 2017G Apr 19 Wed 22 Rejab 1438H

I was given a task I could not refuse by one Mariam, and perhaps inflamed by Zawiah, to gather as many as possible the buddies from as early as 1964 that were destined to meet in the pioneer Malay-Medium secondary school of PADANG MIDIN. It started Jan 28. I was at the same time tighted up with the preparation for Jan 29, and Feb 19 events. It didn't take too long to get the support of ever-waiting Razali Yusof, Abdullah Che Din, Wan Mohamad Musa, and others who were consequently contacted. All were arranged in virtuality for the reality. It's to be known as KIJAL 15 APR. The REUNION of SRP-1966 SMKPM (then, Sekolah Dato Amar which was then refined to Sekolah Dato' Sri Amar Diraja), Kuala Terengganu. 78 alumni responded to come, many were very eager indeed, and many were obviously accompanied, making up a total of 142 attendees.

For the first time by KLIA2 on an AK, TGG bound. Arriving from TGG was just once before, after my retirement 2014 Feb. AK was never our first choice.



Done Sixty-Six Since 1951 Apr 20

Dated 2017G Apr 20 Thu 23 Rejab 1438H

And on the way into sixty-seven. NA started on her own in TGG, and spent in Sg Merab for the weekend while attending a meeting in ETIQA Bangsar. For the rest, FB led.
