Welcoming Ramadan 1442H

Dated 2021G Apr 14 Wed 2 Ramadan 1442H

Apr 1 Thu 18 Shakban 1442H was the starting of MCO v2-7, to end Apr 14 Wed 2 Ramadan, just another continuation of the previous categorised MCO in which inter-state movement was still not allowed. Done were the MCO v2-6, MCO v2-5, MCO 2.0-4, MCO 2.0-3, MCO 2.0-2, MCO 2.0, Q16, R-Q15, Q14, Q13, R-Q12, R-Q11, R-Q10, R-Q9, R-Q8, R-Q7, R-Q6, R-Q5, R-Q4, R-Q3, R-Q2, and R-Q1, since 2020 Jun 10 Wed.

Apr 12 Mon 29 Shakban 1442H, DRVKUL in TAV with NA after getting P-endorsement in Gong Badak. Weather-wise it was cloudy, and the traffic was light. Two stops, one in PAKA RR to include refueling, and in Lanchang for washroom. The paper checking before Gombak toll was very light. It was pre-congestion time when we reached KL, even in the massive construction sectors of AKLEH-FLAMINGO and the 'infamous' BTS-SGBESI rail complex. With that we made it in less than the bench-mark time of six hr.

Apr 13 Tue, RAMADAN 1442H set in. And it was 5-beranak, including SB. His last Ramadan at home was 1435H, Jun 2014. He spent the last six Ramadan in Germany. Nonetheless, among the six years, he managed to spend some Raya Haji at home while on vacation.

Apr 14 Wed 2 Ramadan 1442H, end of MCO v2-7. The new positives were still in the thousands. The hope for the inter-state un-MCO this Syawal in four weeks time, was very dim.

Mac-15in screen was replaced in one w-shop in B-BAGINDA, CB restored to status quo before solat Jumaat. The 10y old Mac still performed, and with the new screen, free from damaged pixel, it still suited my purposes.

Apr 3 Sat 20 Shakban 1442H, DRVTGG, with NA in TAV after obtaining P-Endorsement the day before. It was a fine day all the way. At TEMERLOH RR where we stopped for a refreshment, stumbled with JAMALUDDIN DAUD 3-beranak, he said to send his daughter bungsu a Russian-DR-grad to report duty in Kuantan Hospital. And also stumbled with REDUAN 3-beranak, he said on the way home from routine check in IJN. And a fine traffic too, except the pass-checking, first immediately after Bentong toll, and the second at Prasing RR. However we exited LPT2 at Chukai, dropped at NASAEE's place in MOK CHILLI, for ca 2h. Resumed the drive by the beach route. Singgah ACID DUNGUN CORNER near the Telekom, for mi-kari, becoming the last customer for the day. The rest of the drive was on re-LPT2 from BKT BESI toll passing PADANG PULUT from CHE LIJAH.

Home in W-Tengah at sun set. Viewed in the semi-darkness, all were fine at home. It appeared that TRG was not that dry in the past weeks. Noted also, one new house is coming up. The southern back lot which was cleared for paket-ing.

While in the LPT, it was comm-ed that in W-TENGAH, NUAR was fitting the STEEL RAILING on the wash-area stair. The img were relayed ca 1150.



MCO v2-6, MAR 19-31, Gua Musang Re-Passed By

Dated 2021G Mar 31 Wed 17 Syakban 1442H

Mar 19 Fri 5 Shakban 1442H was MCO v2-6, to end Mar 31 Wed 17 Syakban, just another continuation of the previous categorised MCO in which inter-state movement was still not allowed. Done were the MCO v2-5, MCO 2.0-4, MCO 2.0-3, MCO 2.0-2, MCO 2.0, Q16, R-Q15, Q14, Q13, R-Q12, R-Q11, R-Q10, R-Q9, R-Q8, R-Q7, R-Q6, R-Q5, R-Q4, R-Q3, R-Q2, and R-Q1, since 2020 Jun 10 Wed.

Mar 22 Mon 8 Shakban 1442H, an adventurous DRV-KNERUS-KENYIR-GUAMUSANG-LIPIS-RAUB-BENTONG-KUL. The central event was in GUA MUSANG, the conclusion of the P-PANJANG event of Mar 20 Sat. Noted that we were in GUA MUSANG the last time twenty-one years ago Jun 2 Sat 1990, similarly KUL-wards, in Pajero, 7-beranak then, the smallest was ALYA, 14-month, ex-KOTA BHARU after a 'frolic' with Pustaka Aman Press which was the very reason we drove up to Kota Bharu.

Mar 19 Fri 5 Shakban 1442H, after Jumaat in Telipot, a DRV-JERTEH again. NA needed to see the event in P-PANJANG the next day Mar 20 Sat proceeds unhitched, whence, for the 3-rd time since Mar 9 Tue DRVTGG, we made the DRV-JERTEH. All adik-beradik gathered. Several ank-sedara naturally could not make it.

Weather-wise, SG MERAB was milder than W-TENGAH. Cooler evening with skirmish drizzling. Noted that, RAMBUTAN were flowering, as they did irrespective of season. But for the past many years they had not given us the fruit they used to since we were here in 1987 because as soon as fruits were formed, the troops of LANGUR took them all for themselves. Nothing was left for us. And of late, the trees were heavily pruned that they took several years to re-equilibrate. Other plants were also flowering, viz, chilli, cempedak, guava, bendi, and soursop. Looking forward for the flower were the musang-king, and the mangosteen. Noted also that langurs do not menace the chilly and the bendi. However, the papaya shoot is their favourite.

Mar 31 Wed 17 Shakban 1442H, end of MCO v2-6, but the daily new positives figure were still in the vicinity of thousand. Ramadan was in less than a fourth night, but the greatest hope was for the inter-state MCO-free for the 1-st Shawal 1442H which tentatively would be on May 13 Thu.
