We'll Meet the People We've Met Before

Dated 2019G Mar 18 Mon 11 Rejab 1440H

Mar 10 Sun, a return DRVKUL, solo, and in WFV. Arranged with RAZALI in Dungun to stop by for a visit. But the main intention was to have him in company to visit AZIZAH MOHD, who I have not met since we parted in 1965, staying nearby him, an F-1AM classmate in 1964 Sultan Sulaiman, and F-2A 1965 Padang Midin. She contacted, 2018 Sep 5 Wed, quite sometimes after the AWANA RE-UNION in 2017, she said from the info in the net she asked her ank to search, the event she would have joined had she knew in advance. The visit was rather brief, but completed with the invocation of our dearest teacher CheGu Saadiah, to whom Azizah said she went to visit her at her son's home in Shah Alam, as did I in 2006 Jun 18 Sat in her home in Kapar, Klang.

RANTAU ABANG, and KUALA ABANG, two nostalgic place-names, neighbouring, on reaching DUNGUN by the beach route, once upon a time were very breezy vacant beach-land. Mok Ngoh, my father's sister always reminded me of (paternal) relatives staying in Rantau Abang, and my mother reminded me of (maternal) close relatives staying in Kuala Abang. Somehow I never met any of them. My elder brother did.

The rest of the DRV was by the beach road before taking LPT1 in Jabor to KL. Gombak toll was congested, and all along MRR2 with never ending h-way constructions.

Bangi was equally under the heat wave, especially in the afternoon to early evening. However, on some days, some very thin drizzling fall, but not enough to cool down the day heat.

Mar 14 Thu, NA MH-hopped home for the weekend, and for some matters relating to her career. On Fri it was about the APP of e-filing that needed to be bought, and installed. And Mar 16 Sat, the BAR AGM in Ampang. And hectically AK-hopped back to TRG in the evening of the same Sat.



A Re-Cruise

Dated 2019G Mar 9 Sat 2 Rejab 1440H

Mar 4 Mon, DRVTGG with NA, and most importantly was in WFV. The last time the Merc was driven to TRG was 2017 Dec 23. It then went through a very bad poor condition. The non-firing cold start engine. The leaking power steering oil. The over-heating. The leaking auto-gear oil. In 2018 Jan, it went through a massive check up in DUTA PAKAR in 4-TAMBAHAN. But its return was only after going to SRI KEMBANGAN in 2018 Nov, for the second time, to have the over-heating, and the gear oil leak fixed.

The DRVTGG cruising was very pleasant, weather-wise, very light traffic. If I were alone, I would have taken the AJJ route, avoiding the 24rm LPT2. TRG was very dry. The grasses were brownish, signs of non-rainy season. Blue sky, very thin clouds. For the first time WFV was parked under the unlimited shadow of the house in W-Tengah.

There was no response from RIPIN, Tue-Thu, about bringing the PLASTER MAN, to see the job quantity at the house and the upah. I was waiting for three days.

Mar 7 Thu 30 J-Akhir 1440H, a small impromptu rendz. MD SOOT w-msged that he's to see JALIL in Marang, taking SHUKOR YASIN from Dungun, and would like me to join them. Jalil, Md Soot and I were classmates for four years 1967-1970 in SAS. I have not seen SHUKOR since after our HSC in 1970 Nov in SAS. He's Md Soot's class mate in southern Johor before coming to SAS in 1967. From the beginning of his career, Shukor embarked in FELDA, and he said being posted in the vicinity of Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan. During which in one instance he landed in AJIL, and get married to a lass. He settled in Dungun to his retirement, with four children.

The symbol of tangible Election Manifesto, only in TRG. It happened in PRU 1999. In 2018 the PRU of similar result was repeated. The symbol was standing there. Tall, witnessing.
