A Scary Casted Future

Dated 2018G Feb 14 Wed 28 J-Awal 1439H

NA was in Sg Merab home since DRVKUL Feb 8 Thu and stayed for a while before AK-hopped back to TGG Feb 12 Mon. During which Feb 9 Fri she attended the opening of the new BAR COUNCIL home in Jln Raja KL which she said the event may be her last event with the BAR in KL.

It was a double walimah Feb 10 Sat. The first attended was that of Dr Arisol in Sect-7 Shah Alam, Dewan Lavender of MBSA. Acquaintance with Dr Arisol was a long history, beginning in 1976 when I started my career as a lecturer, and he was my hons year student in 1979. But the closest was in the UKM 'imfamous' Chitosan Affairs of the 1990's. A 'congener', of equally acquainted, also present in the event, was Dr Ambar Yarmo, who narrated a bit of what 'remained' in UKM Chemistry. It was a long time ago, since my last day 11 years ago, in 2007.

Afterwards we rushed to Dewan Gemilang of Yayasan Felda in Kelana Jaya for the walimah of Dr Kassim, a colleague in the Faculty of Agriculture and Biotechnology, when we were in Universiti Darul Iman Malaysia (UDM) during our KOTA days 2007-2009. Dr Kassim lives in Kg Tunku in a community, pioneer wave, apparently with many I knew, one was Zawiah, also present in the event. Included obviously are CheGu Ghazali, and the late CheGu Hussein. Dr Kassim perhaps does not know my acquaintances in Kg Tunku. Not to mention that from mid 1971, to mid 1972, I stayed in Sg Way, next door, and I passed by Kg Tunku almost every day during its primitive development on my way to Pantai Valley for the lecture.

ASRI's stand by P-test for Feb 13 Tue, in Nilai-3 Circuit, was deferred, because of too many candidates, to another opportunity date, perhaps on 24-h notice. And most probably after the CNY break of mid Feb. MAZRIS in Bangi, and later AMSA in Sg Merab, were all fully booked till Apr which made no sense for SPM leavers like Asri. Apparently driving licence business is rather lucrative this day.

But WFV was finally home, after being away in DUTA PAKAR in FASA-4 since Jan 15 Mon, a lot better especially ignition and drive-wise, the raison d etre, but being aged, needed much attention, especially the engine cooling, the second raison d etre. As are the oil leaking from the steering, and the gear, although both had been treated, by separate POMEN though.



A Month Closer

Dated 2018G Feb 9 Fri 23 J-Awal 1439H

Asri started his driving lessons, in three consecutive days, started Jan 31 Wed, Feb 1 Thu, and Feb 2 Fri in IKAMS Nilai-3 circuit. And was listed on stand by for a P-Test on Feb 13 Tue. ALYA made a home weekend Feb 1-3 Thu-Sat. NA opted to stay in TGG, for the weekend, waiting for my return. And Feb 1 Fri was SB's final paper in OSNA semester exam, his 5-th sem, to be followed by a month break to Mar 4 Sun. With that my DRVTGG on Feb 4 Sun was alone, and in Nissan.

The DRVTGG on Feb 4 Sun was for the first time the W-TENGAH home. Arriving 2242 to the waiting NA. In Tok Jembal was only from Feb 7 Wed, the day after the DRV-KEMAMAN, the night before the reverse DRVKUL, and with NA. Two days in W-TENGAH, Mon and Wed, was not long enough, not much could be furnished. But a mobile cooker table-seat was shaped in form and usable, pre-decoration though. More to be done in the kitchen to make it imbibeable.

While in Kemaman Feb 6 Tue, on accompany-ing NA, while having lunch at Stesen Bas lama Chukai, we were met by my ex-student in UNIZA. We have an anecdote in one evening before he quitted Animal Production and Health Degree Programme in 2010? to take up a Medical Course in Egypt. Currently he's waiting for his HO turn in HSNZ in a while to come.

DRVKUL Feb 9 Thu was with NA going for the home weekend in SG MERAB home. Terengganu has returned to the heat of the coastal weather. But windy. The grasses were dry, and easily caught fire. The rain was just skirmishes. Plus the dew in the morning.
