The First Throw

Dated 2018G Feb 23 Fri 7 J-Akhir 1439H

NA returned, Feb 15 Thu for the home weekend after an ETIQA meeting in BANGSAR. The weekend was the DOG CNY break Feb 16-17 Fri-Sat. And NA spent all of it in Sg Merab to Feb 19 Mon with a rare KULTGG MH-hop.

Feb 18 Sun 2 J-Akhir 1439H, my 14-th Datuk 'conferment', of RUBAINI, her 6-th, the 4-th girl. And NA's second, she admittedly said. The 13-th was last year, Nov 2 Thu 13 Safar 1439H. And the 15-th to come in ca three months time, each respectively from three daughters.

And while in Putrajaya after welcoming Siti Aishah in Putrajaya Hospital, we caved in the BOWLING ALLEY in Alamanda. It was NA's idea, and it had cheered up ASRI untold, and a relief to CB. I never realised that the game is so much fun for a family outing, rather costly though. And for the FIRST TIME I threw the ball to the aligned pins. NA obviously was not a novice. She had told her interest in this since before we were together.

During which many walimah were arrayed, including in TRG. But I was in only one. That of Mohd Embong, Feb 17 Sat in the Dewan Komuniti, Taman Ibu Kota, Gombak. Ostensibly the event was swarmed by the ASAS6770, some of them I knew very well. One in particular was Dr Izzudin. I don't mind at all if many of them don't remember me at all. And also present to a certain extent were of Padang_Midin_SPM68, some of them are very dear from our very tender age of teens. Wan Muhamad Musa, and Yusof Said were two of them.



A Scary Casted Future

Dated 2018G Feb 14 Wed 28 J-Awal 1439H

NA was in Sg Merab home since DRVKUL Feb 8 Thu and stayed for a while before AK-hopped back to TGG Feb 12 Mon. During which Feb 9 Fri she attended the opening of the new BAR COUNCIL home in Jln Raja KL which she said the event may be her last event with the BAR in KL.

It was a double walimah Feb 10 Sat. The first attended was that of Dr Arisol in Sect-7 Shah Alam, Dewan Lavender of MBSA. Acquaintance with Dr Arisol was a long history, beginning in 1976 when I started my career as a lecturer, and he was my hons year student in 1979. But the closest was in the UKM 'imfamous' Chitosan Affairs of the 1990's. A 'congener', of equally acquainted, also present in the event, was Dr Ambar Yarmo, who narrated a bit of what 'remained' in UKM Chemistry. It was a long time ago, since my last day 11 years ago, in 2007.

Afterwards we rushed to Dewan Gemilang of Yayasan Felda in Kelana Jaya for the walimah of Dr Kassim, a colleague in the Faculty of Agriculture and Biotechnology, when we were in Universiti Darul Iman Malaysia (UDM) during our KOTA days 2007-2009. Dr Kassim lives in Kg Tunku in a community, pioneer wave, apparently with many I knew, one was Zawiah, also present in the event. Included obviously are CheGu Ghazali, and the late CheGu Hussein. Dr Kassim perhaps does not know my acquaintances in Kg Tunku. Not to mention that from mid 1971, to mid 1972, I stayed in Sg Way, next door, and I passed by Kg Tunku almost every day during its primitive development on my way to Pantai Valley for the lecture.

ASRI's stand by P-test for Feb 13 Tue, in Nilai-3 Circuit, was deferred, because of too many candidates, to another opportunity date, perhaps on 24-h notice. And most probably after the CNY break of mid Feb. MAZRIS in Bangi, and later AMSA in Sg Merab, were all fully booked till Apr which made no sense for SPM leavers like Asri. Apparently driving licence business is rather lucrative this day.

But WFV was finally home, after being away in DUTA PAKAR in FASA-4 since Jan 15 Mon, a lot better especially ignition and drive-wise, the raison d etre, but being aged, needed much attention, especially the engine cooling, the second raison d etre. As are the oil leaking from the steering, and the gear, although both had been treated, by separate POMEN though.
