Two Reunions In A Day
After getting two calls from long lost Sulaimanians in a day, we had a reunion among some of us. Bukhori decided to have lunch and a small reunion at his house in SS19 Subang Jaya. Surprisingly, the simply organised get together [thanks to Bukhori and family] turn out to be an enjoyable one. We had so many things to tell and to catch up [and especially the host had so many to recollect our memory] it lasted over 4 hours (or even more for those who came much earlier).
Those who came were:
[R-L] Gerard Royan, Soh Wee Chong, Karim Omar (me), Syed Mohd Zaid, Shaharudin Ibrahim, Syed Abdul Fattah, Bukhori Abu Bakar (host), Abdul Ghaffar Mohd Nor, Abu Latiffi and Mohd Kamal Omar
This is just a quick brief update – hoping someone among those above would be writing a post soon with photos taken to be included.
Earlier in the morning it was another reunion among those who were with the Persatuan Mahasiswa Islam Universiti Pertanian Malaysia (PMIUPM) in Bangi [I was the Vice President in 1980-81 – besides other positions prior to that].
Here is an additional note/comment from Bukhari (Bob):
One of my favourite song ever, is a 1970s hit by Bread called “If ” …If a picture paints a thousand words……well, standing together, nothing can describe our joys and happiness to be able to meet again, some after almost 35 years. It was a memorable day indeed.
For a start, almost everyone were invited, turned up (Nik Paudzi, Jamil, Mat Stopa – awat hangpa tak mai ?) and I was delighted Zaid, the later been living in the same neighbourhood all these years! Some have become almost unrecognisable like Apo (Ghaffar) and (Abu) but still retain those schooldays looks. With the exception of Kamal, and Kid (Shaharuddin), all have improved statistics in the mid-areas.brought along the brothers, Fattah and
Presence of Karim, Fattah and Zaid (who were some years our juniors), have balanced the group in age and appearance. Apo brought along his large collection of schooldays photos for us to reminisce old times and anecdotes. We spent talking and laughing so much of the time that my dear wife complained that no one was eating. We certainly have a lots to catch up but time was so short (4 hours!). Anyway, we promised to meet again, maybe over teh tarik at some(your idea Gerard?). For me, I am looking forward to the coming (bigger) reunion on the .
P.S. Here’s some photo snaps i had on that day…too bad, I was too excited to remember taking pictures!
