SB's End of Break

Dated 2018G 2018 Sep 17 Mon 7 Muharram 1440H

September 11 Tue, was Malaysia Break of 1440H new year. DRVTGG, 4-beranak with SB-ASRI, for a few days. This is the last TGG trip for SB in the current break before flying back to Osna. Next weekend, Sep 22 Sat 12 Muharram 1440H.

Sep 13 Thu, a day trip to JERTEH for NA's 'last' matter with RYP. And similar matter in RYP K TRG at night, and the following day Sep 14 Fri, RYP Dungun. It was a hard and tough decision NA had made, it was like a judge arriving at the verdict after a long trial, with both sides produced witnesses of beyond any doubt, rather than like a lawyer in concluding a submission. And with that this street, Jln Hj Hussein in Jerteh, would not be seeing us again as frequently as before. Nonetheless, we would be visiting Jerteh, being NA's 'tanah-air', from time to time.

The time was rather tight. In the late afternoon of Sep 12 Wed, took SB-Asri to Paya Datu, on Zubaidah insistence, to fetch DUKU, even tough the place I was informed had been faraid-ed, and Azizah is not a variable in the equation at that particular site.

Followed by a short rendz with Dr Abdullah Sipat, and Dr Che Abdullah in AIR NYOR Tok Jembal. Just a casual get together.

The DRVTGG was mainly to be with TRG BAR in a family day 2018 in SWISS GARDEN resort in BASERAH, Sep 14-15, Fri-Sat. Baserah, Balok were two beaches, those days were signs that we were reaching Kuantan. In reverse, after a long and tiring drive from KL, these are the place where we would have the fresh air, and stretches the leg before continuing to K Terengganu.

Sep 15 Sat 5 Muharram 1440H, DRV KUTN-KUL, ex-Swiss Garden, Baserah. While in the area, stopped by to visit, first AWI MOKTEH PAH, staying very close by. This was the first time visit to him ever since he resided in Baserah while being an academic staff of MRSM after graduated from Mesir. In 2010 Haj, he arranged the proxy Haj for Azizah. Then stopped by NOR ABNG RA in Taman Mahkota off the camp. I could not remember exactly the last visit, but one vividly was in 2007 Jan 7; 1427 D'Hijjah 17 Sun.



New Year 1440H

Dated 2018G Sep 11 Tue 1 MUHARRAM 1440H

Noted in the net that Agong BD celebration was rescheduled from Jun early to Sep early, and this year the Sep celebration was cancelled. Merdeka this year, 2018 Aug 31 Fri, is Merdeka-61, for the first time not under BN. And it was rather quiet, even on the road-h-way, other than congestion of motorists taking advantage of the 3-days holiday-coupled-weekend, travelling to see their love ones. Supposedly 'New Malaysia', and the merdeka was 'Merdeka 2.0'. P.S., TST - Tahu sama tahu - You know that I know what you know. Conversely - There is nothing that you know that I don't know.

Of late, Taman Tasek Chempaka (TTC) was frequently visited. In the morning of both weekdays, and weekends. And with NA. Sporadically, SB and ASRI accompanied. Perhaps more or less on the same momentum since Jul-mid in UKM's Astaka.

Sep 7 Fri 26 Z-Hijjah 1439H, an ex-colleague sadly lost a daughter. I went to visit him, during which an ex-student in UKM, rekindled the acquaitance, and that was in the middle of many more SAS-ians, ex-colleagues, etc, who were visiting.

The week of Sep beginning, the media deliberately transmitted the Shariah Caning case in TRG, perhaps the first case of the kind in the country. It gave the true pic of the attitude of the people of Malaysia wrt to Shariah, from all views, be it political, and social, and all classes of people in the country.

The weekend of Sep 8, was a long one. It ended Sep 11 Tue with the First Muharram of 1440H. Sep 10 Mon was a replacement of Sep 9 Sun break of Agong BD. The following weekend was also an extended one, pivoted on Sep 16 Sun for the Malaysia Day break.

During which, Sep 8 Sat 27 Z-Hijjah 1439H, ank2 organised a half-day get together. All were in SG MERAB, including ALYA et al from JB, except the three Ruby's boys. And joining also were SB's five buddies who were on leave-tour from Germany since Fri night, through to Sun afternoon.
