The Background Bridge

Dated 2019G May 26 Sun 21 Ramadan 1440H

May 23 Thu 18 Ramadan 1440H, DRVTGG, solo, taking WIRA back to TRG. ASRI was actually in the first week of exam weeks. He said today Thu, and the next day Fri are two papers. The third is on May 28 Tue, in the second week.

Homing in W-Tengah now is with a different sighting. It's no longer of classical look of the red brick.

May 25 Sat 20 Ramadan, strolling the city of K TRG, in particular the vicinity of SHAHBANDAR where the would-be-famous DRAW BRIDGE is in the last stage of construction. What initially brought us there was the BAZAAR RAMADAN. On strolling, the bazaar was not as impressive as I first encountered in 2007, twelve years ago upon checking in UDM, Kota Campus. The years that followed, the faculty moved to KUZA in Gong Badak.

Took the full JJA route, skipping off entirely LPT2. Both traffic and weather were nice with some spotty light shower in the east coast. However, nearing the destination, noted an armada of timber, perhaps waiting for the sky to get clear. The haulers were seen roaming right close to Ajil.

May 24 Fri 19 Ramadan 1440H, accompany-ed NA to a homestay in GELUGUR for the event TRG BAR IFTAR, in which she was made to responsible to the meals. The place was exclusive in nature, but was not so in its nature. A late afternoon torrential rain nearly marred the event. But when it stopped, miraculously, the zeal of the young members, put up together into one piece a perfection.

Ostensibly most of the foods were those of ubiquity, prepared by the youngsters, and for the youngsters too. Western-like with local taste. Local dishes were limited to some fish, grilled or fried, and smeared with red sauces such as chilly sauce. And were rather expensive because of the fish price.



Into the Second Half of Ramadan

Dated 2019G May 22 Wed 17 Ramadan 1440H

May 18 Sat 13 Ramadan, popped in SNR for the Terawih, taking advantage from the fact that CB-ASRI had their iftar with respective buddies. It has been quiet sometimes absent from SNR for the garib-isyak. Whenever at home in Sg Merab I went just for zohor-asar. The following night, CB-ASRI were made to tag on.

May 19 Sun was Malaysia Wesak break, and thus May 20 Mon 15 Ramadan was the subt-break day. The day NA AK-hopped back to TRG for her CT case and related matters in TRG.

May 17 Fri 12 Ramadan, DRVKUL with NA in WIRA. TAV was made to stay in Sepetir. The change of logistic was due to NA's CT re-schedule, came about from the fact that May 22 Wed is a break day for TRG et al. Nuzul Quran. After a contemplation, she would AK-return to TRG, and I would DRVTGG the WIRA back at a later date.

Opted to cruise the beach route, just like before the advent of LPT2, and un-opted the AJJ alternative Route. Seeing how much changes had taken place for the post-LPT2 era. Singgah at the Lemang Mall in Kijal. Visibly it's been far down the anti-climax. Perhaps they would maintain better in the heart of local Kijal like they used to. The anticipation that the added motorists would multiply the customers is just a pure assumption.

We were in Sg Ular at mid-day, thus stopped for the Jumaat at the New Masjid. In the 80's this place was almost a must-stop pit to wash even to bathe children. It was then a half-concrete old mosque with a well of cold water drawn by the roped-bucket. Big trees provided unlimited shadow in front of the mosque.
