Kompleks Stadium Gong Badak, KTGG. The one on the left is imfamously known.

Which reminded me of my degree conferment in 1976 Dec 20 in Salford University, UK, which in my case, was in absentia. In Dec 1976, I was very comfortable in Sect 16 PJ in Chem Dept, UKM, more or less a lecturer apprentice, and was just two months settling down with Azizah. My other subsequent in absentia degree conferment was my doctorate, 1983 Jul 14, at the same alma mater. We were then settling down in Bangi, the permanent campus of UKM.

The event was significant to both UniSZA and its citizens. First it was hastily conducted in a stadium because the speed of DABS renovation was too turtlic to reach at the simultaneity even though it was given a luxurious time of pre-preparation. The CEO had every supportive excuse, and was very unworried about it. The second, it was the fourth, third its content was in a full fledge, the honorary awards, the doctorate. The fourth to FPB, the pioneer BAnimP&H complementing the pioneer BAgricBiotech in 2010 conferment. Making FPB a wholesome faculty in the phase of KOTA-KGB. In Tembila it would be a new phase, not excluding a great possibility of a new face about which deep inside was what I actually anticipating for.

The momentum started with a Royal Dinner in Primula in the evening of Nov 30 Fri. During which I had a good rapport with Dr Nordin, on every corner of life in UniSZA, inside and outside. His side and my side. The first session was Dec 1 Sat in the morning. FPB conferment was in Session 1, Dec 2 Sun in the morning. The final session 3 was in the afternoon. During which I switched to Prof Nordin, from the beginning to the end, except during the stage session.

Last year 2011 convocation #3 was in Sep, with Asri accompanied, including in the majlis in DABS. This year, an addition of CB and SB, while Alya was deep in her final leg of FYP at home in Sg Merab.
