I knew Nazliah ever since she was small and 20 years after, the child is now married today 02.05.09. How time flies...but of course, I had to attend this wedding as the father and mother is still my friend of more than 10 years.
When we reached Seksyen 9, Shah Alam, we saw cars parked by the roadside (left and right) and RELA staffs were busy handling the traffic. We had to parked a bit further from the wedding's place and we saw 15 canopies filled with guests.
A grand wedding I guess, and of course my intention besides the wedding is to meet former friends of the Applied Sciences (at the least, as I know the patron will be busy). The first I met was Ayob's sister who was one of the usherer; we had a small chat and my wife, Afiq, Aqilah and me were shown the table. Food and drink are not in my mind, and luck is with me as I saw and met Assoc Prof Othman Kio and Assoc Prof Dr Zainuddin table still vacant. My family and myself just went straight and help ourself with "tapai pulut" wrapped with rubber leaves, I had 10 pieces of it (so sweet and delicious) with 2 glasses of teh tarik. My wife and kids had the nasi beriani with chicken curry, rendang daging, acar buah and etc.
At the table, Assoc Prof Othman Kio and me were throwing friendly 'curses and swearing' at each other , what was 5-10 years left were thrown again; that's what we used to do as it's considered normal and lovingly between us. We are close-friends actually and still are. Among others I met; Che Mohd Som Chai and wife; Khalid Demang, Roslan Saarip (my student of KDPOUM/PPD Shah Alam/Petaling), Dr Wan (?), Ahmad Kambali (my former colleague of Peneruk, Pontian; a dendrology and wood anatomy expert) and Nora (his wife, a food technology expert), Puan Ropenah Samuri and ex-YB Adun Sungai Manik, Ibrahim Katop and wife (now residing at 4, Jalan 9/13, Seksyen 9, 41000 Shah Alam) plus some others
I waited until the 'bersanding' and also hoping to see the likes of others but had to move to another friend's place in USJ. Being at the wedding (at the least) was to ensure that friendship still remains to be seen; thank you to Assoc Prof Dr and wife for your invitation. May Allah bless us all.
Wasalam. Dated 02.05.09
