Al-Marhum Syed Yusof Zawawi’s Youngest Daugther Wedding
As always, weddings are occasions that you can meet old friends. That was what many of us did last night during the wedding of Sharifah Hanaa, the youngest daugther of our al-marhum Mufti of Terengganu in the 1960s and 1970s, Syed Yusof Al-Zawawi.
Most of the late mufti’s children were the Sulaimanian, such as Syed Salleh – the only that permanently resides in Terengganu (Batu Burok area), Syed Abdul Fattah (we were classmates for so many years – right from the primary school days at SSPS1), Syed Mohd Zaid (Syed Zed – MCE1976), and I cannot recall the names of their other siblings.
So, during the wedding reception at one of the new hall along Jalan Raja Chulan (correction: Jalan Bukit Bintang), there were Tg. Mahmud, Fauzi (Kattang) Abu Bakar, Syed Sallehuddin, Zamri Sulaiman (Cikgu Chema’s younger brother), Bidin Nazar and Yunus Abu Hassan – they were all MCE76 – my junior.
All of us came alone except for Fauzi who was accompanied by his wife (seen here in the photo on the left talking to Syed Zed).
It was a surprise for many of us to see Syed Zed showing his multi talents. Firstly as the wedding couple walked in the hall towards the dias, he used his powerful voice to lead the “salawat”. Later, he mesmerised the crowd with some oldies with his own band of musicians (with own equipments/instruments).
Sitting at the other side of the hall I also met with Halimaton Daim with her husband and her mother too. Unfortunately, I was too busy talking with her and her mum (whom I have not met for so long – she used to do her marketing at the same pasar tani as we do). I had never seen her ever since Halimaton’s father passed away).
It was unfortunate that I also forgot to have Syed Fattah’s latest photo taken. But here is a photo of him taken earlier this year during a gathering at Bukhori’s house.
