The Brewing PRU-14

Dated 2018G Apr 19 Thu 3 Shakban 1439H

Noted, in ASAS 6770 Wasap, on reaching home in Sg Merab, Apr 12 Thu night, the passing of CheGu Ghazali, 2018 Apr 11 Wed 24 Rejab 1439H, ca 2340. Chegu Ghazali was the HM of SAS 1969-1970, taking over from Chegu Ariffin Suhaimi who apparently flew in his destiny which led him to the newly established UKM (later UPM, and finally UIAM). During the short time as HM, Chegu Ghazali made quite a change in SAS, and in 1969 leading to my appointment as the HB for 1970, the 8-th HB of SAS. My quest for the tribute started since the beginning of 2k, but materialise only in 2009. I visited him in his place in Kg Tunku, PJ, Oct 10 Sat. Interestingly, later on I was made known that we actually searched for each other, Chegu was helped by Zawiah, my school mate, Chegu's neighbour in Kg Tunku. Chegu apparently read my fototeks in the net, later when we finally met said it was searched by his son. And like Dr Huglin in Salford 1980's, amazed at my being able to read his mind. I once took Chegu Ghazali to TRG, in 2009 Nov, put him in FELDA hotel, and took him to see the places, he wished very much to see again in TRG, after he left in 1975. Allah gave me the capability to make his wish fulfilled.

NA AK-hopped to TRG, Apr 16 Mon to tie some loose ends in KT CT. And another one in Kemaman. And returned back to Sg Merab home Apr 21 Sat.

The last 'frolic' with Chegu Ghazali, was 2017 Feb 19 Sun 22 J-Awal 1438H, in the Veilaris, Kajang, attending my Walimah of Alya's wedding reception.

In Sg Merab-Bangi, the WAR of FLAG of PRU-14 wasn't yet as intense as in TRG, especially in the rural area. Perhaps it would after the candidature on Apr 28 Sat. The voting day is May 9 Wed, about a week before Ramadan. Life for the RAKYAT is a day-by-day continuation, the change being of entropic by nature.



Home in W-Tengah

Dated 2018G Apr 14 Sat 27 Rejab 1439H

Apr 6 Fri, DRVTGG with NA. ASRI opted to stay in Sg Merab to attend an ICT demonstration in IUKL about which he said he's interested in. In TRG stayed in W-TENGAH through out. Went to TOK JEMBAL only to park Nissan, exchanging with WIRA, and reversed on the DRVKUL day Apr 12 Thu, with only a hi to Kamal. Nonetheless, twice dropped by roti-canai Keron.

Apr 12 Thu was the return DRVKUL, with NA. Skipped all the LPT2, as though in those days without LPT2, saving for a meal in Gambang. And passing by SMKPM, glancing at the class F3A, the class I last left in Nov 1966, one of the places I would like my 'ghost' to keep on staying in guard of my past. The KT-AJIL road was very much improved, perhaps DONE, but the congest-state stayed constant because as the road is getting better, more traffic flow into it, more traffic lights were built to smoothen the traffic. Thus the net effect is about the same. AJIL-JABOR road remained the same, it's made better by less traffic, as in the case of BUKIT BESI-JABOR.

M-sia 13th Parliament was dissolved, effective today, Apr 7 Sat. The new one, the 14th would be formed after May 9 Wed voting, in the so-called PRU-14.

Visited MANIR. Perhaps this was the first time in 2018. For sure not more than the second time. And incidentally met HAMZAH NGAH. We had a quick cup of tea and nasi-dagang, and ostensibly the subject of PRU-14 could not be excluded. And as always, I exemplified the 1999 results which like others stunned him for a while. In the memory was the 2006 visit to KENYIR in which without my acquaintance the 'tourists', especially the bapak2 would not have the privilage of VIP treatment.

Managed only a day in W-Tengah in furnishing the inside needs, especially in the kitchen. Finished just one, the mobile-cookware-rack (MCR). Apr 9 Mon was spent in Jerteh. Apr 10 Tue, and the following day Wed were in Kemaman. TRG was reportedly very dry for the past weeks. These few days however some rain wetted the ground.
