Ending Shawal

Dated: 2024 May 15 Wed 6 Z-Kaedah 1445H

2024 May 1-15 covid, was MCO-F5-52, the accompany-ing FOTOTEKS-es, topping the previous COVID-MCO-es. Covid was very quiet.

May 3 Fri 24 Shawal 1445H, DRVTGG with NA in TAV. Setoff early, passing Bar Council, in the heart of KUL, fetching some docs. Then Waze took to the super-elevated h-ways to Gombak toll. And onwards. The weather was fine, super-dry in TGG with a very light skirmish in Dungun LPT2. And traffic too. Home in W-Tengah after a short peek in Sepetir, as well as for zohor-asar.

May 8 Wed 29 Shawal 1445H, a DIY of garment-rack, which had failed recently to stand up by the overload. It worked as schemed. A visit to WT-Bazaar for the night meals. Noted the de-swell-ing of sellers, and thus the visitors.

May 10 Fri 1 Z-KAEDAH 1445H, a blessed RAINY DAY in TRG. It was raining since wee hr last night. A rain that would quench the thirst of trees and grasses, and cool the air a few degrees. A DRV-DUNGUN attending a b-fast gathering in the residence of Azizah, a Padang Midin acquaintance of 1965 era. Signs of blessed rain were every where along the drv to Dungun. Jumaat in TELIPOT, the smayang istisqa was carried on after jumaat. After jumaat, drove to Golf Resort, from asar in masjid Tok Jembal, misreading the event which should be Fri next week.

May 1 Wed 22 Shawal 1445H, was a Malaysia break of Hari Pekerja. It was called Hari Buruh during my school days, written in the history book, firstly celebrated May 1, 1921, in Ipoh by a group of labourers. In the while took TAV for a post-raya resuscitation for a DRVTGG. And try-ing as much to get the house perimeter shaved off. Of late at the back the ground was rather wet and marshy due to its low level catchment area.

May 4 Sat 25 Shawal 1445H, a makan2 raya, among the last of NA's colleagues, and thus not to miss it. It was in rare residential neighbourhood of Mahkamah Shariah.

May 5 Sun 26 Shawal 1445H, took WLU for the power steering hose replacement. Decidedly it was in KB TYRE. It was not a fast handling, the pomen said it may take more than a day. Left the car, get NA to fetch. Coasting in PTJ, and PKB. A feast of fish for it was late afternoon, the frenzy was over. And a nasi-ayam treat at nearby eatery. The day ended in Jalan Pusara, a dinner in rumah Dr Jamil, with some guests of NA's previous connections.

May 6 Mon 27 Shawal 1445H, an attempt to fix RZC internet in Sepetir which was down since last Sat. A w-msg with CB in Sg Merab with vid of MODEM-ROUTER, CB said it's physical disconnection. NA made several hp, but could not get the right starting person. Decided to drive to UNIFI BANDAR, J-Sutan Ismail. Did just that only to be helped to make a report. Nonetheless the vic of Stesen Bas Lama was visited. Noted for the second time, the notable JAMBAN STESEN BAS. Plus another nostalgic stop at MOKNGOH J-Sutan Omar. Also passing Bukit Tunggal, both the school SKBT, my alma mater, as well as GOK ROTI, purportedly originated from the 1960's. By the way soon when we arrived back in Sepetir, the Unifi man in two vans arrived, and in 30- min, the connection was re-established, he said at the exchange box.

May 9 Thu 30 Shawal 1445H, another makan fiesta, in TER, that of one of NA's colleagues. Preceded by a rendv in Masjid Terapong, a NA's potential client, FATIMAH, who happened to be a buddy of Dr Abdullah in SS, and a cousin of Mohd Embong. She apparently knew many of our Padan Midin 1966 bundle, including Abdullah-Zaharah. The makan fiesta in TER was elegant with foods. Many had already knew me well, and vice versa. We could stay all day if we wish. Being among loyar, a lot of matters could come out.

May 11 Sat 2 Z-Kaedah 1445H, DRV-JERTEH, seeing the trees, plus other things. In P-Rimau just saw the trees. The many tandan-s of KELAT were fighting the virus. The toklitok did not show any flower at all. Hopefully it's a late bloomer. In P-Panjang, managed to mow a bit, covering mostly under the canopy of tall trees. In T-Bugis just saw the MK3. In P-Panjang, and T-Bugis the fallen bunga-derian were under every tree.

May 14 Tue 5 Z-Kaedah 1445H, DRVKUL, initially by the beach route, stopping in Marang Land Office, and the town market, and beli2 along the route. Took the Kuala Dungun toll to join LPT2 and on to KUL. It was a bit of drizzling in Dungun vic, and before Gambang vic. KL was dry but cloudy. Home in Sg Merab ca 5-30, which was rather early.



Through One Third of the Year

Dated: 2024 Apr 30 Tue 21 Shawal 1445H

2024 Apr 16-30 covid, was MCO-F5-51, the accompany-ing FOTOTEKS-es, topping the previous COVID-MCO-es. Covid was very quiet these days.

Apr 20 Sat 11 Shawal 1445H, B-DAY-73. It was in the middle of DRV-JERTIH, seeing NA's brothers and sisters, and nephews and nieces, in Abg Jamil's place, Taman Permint Impiana, Kg Raja. NA arranged for a KEK to be delivered by one of Abg Arif's daughter to the rendv house. While in Jertih, seeing the plants in P-RIMAU, P-PANJANG, and T-BUGIS was always an excitement.

Apr 16 Tue 7 Shawal 1445H, a raya-time with Dr Abdullah, and Mohaimein in off RAHSIA.

Apr 17 Wed 8 Shawal 1445H, RAYA NAM, ziarah kubur, a home coming to Kalang Arang, seeing the land I was born, and grew up before venturing to distant school, and MELAUT. Not many contemporary kampong folks had left. Nonetheless, re-acquainted with several of their offsprings.

Apr 20 Sat 11 Shawal 1445H, DRV-JERTIH, seeing NA's brothers and sisters, and nephews and nieces. And the plants in P-RIMAU, P-PANJANG, and T-BUGIS. Some flowers eventually appeared after the recent long rainy season.

Apr 22 Mon 13 Shawal 1445H, DRVKUL in TAV with NA. As recently frequent, took the beach route up to Dungun, stopping in Marang for some goodies. And some more along the Ru Muda. A snack in Che Lijah was worth a repeat. The surau break was in Kuantan LB. The weather and traffic were favourable untill crossing over the Titiwangsa. KL was very wet, traffic was not bad though on MRR2, but unreasonably congested on the Sg Besi Serdang short stretch. Homed in Sg Merab just before dark after 9h of real time drv.

Apr 24 Wed 15 Shawal 1445H, DRV-SEREMBAN for a legal matter in KPJ. It's been a long time not in this town. The last perhaps a passing in 2011-s. The most frequent was during Malini F1-F5 in TKC 1993-1997. Seremban had changed the manner other towns had changed. Even a lunch in Ampangan did not bring any reminiscence.

Apr 26 Fri 17 Shawal 1445H, ALYA arrived from JB at near subuh. And SB at near garib, after Ruby et al, Malini et al were already in. Makan2, and settled with a KEK-ing. Alya returned to JB the following Apr 27 Sat mid-day. Zidni et al, Muzani et al, completed the evening through the night for another KEK-ing. And ngecun-ing.

Apr 28 Sun 19 Shawal 1445H, NA's day of gathering her ank-sedara who stay in KL-vic. Che Lloh and Dr Abdullah Sipat et mems, especially the latter were the VIP. As well as CG Ros et ank-cu2. SB DRV-iKEROH at time to reach before m-night.

A lot had to be done post Shawal in Sg Merab, after a neglect during entire Ramadan. But at current Apr end the evening downpour had never missed.
