EX SERDANG'S GATHERING.
We had a small gathering of Ex students of Serdang College Malaya who are residing in Kelantan. Most were from the batch of 71,72 and 73. It was Wan Yusoff bin Mohd. Nor who started the idea of the mini gathering. He called me to start calling all Ex Serdangs and propose the gathering to be held at 11.oo AM at Syam Restoran Jalan Hospital, Kota Bharu. The time of 11.00 AM is definitely too early for lunch but we thought it would be better as we could talk before the crowd come should there be a crowd at the place which is more popular for dinner than lunch.

The main room can be set for 20 tables

Syam restoran have more seating places upstair but I didn't check it out.
The reason for the gathering was simply because we had not had such gathering for sometimes. So we started calling those that we have on our phonebook and request the next person to do the same. Over a period of 4 days we managed to inform about 14 people who agreed to attend. Good enough for a start.
A few of those who attended were mates that I have not met since we parted ways after graduation in 1972. Wow that long huh? Most others we did meet on and off. Since most are above 56 by now, we have all reached the mandatory retirement age of 56 years. Some still carry on some business just to keep themselves busy.

1. Tuan Haji Muhamad Omar
2. Tuan Haji Adzmin Ismail

After a good meal Tuan Haji Wan Yusoff, Tuan Haji Nik Hassan and Tuan Haji Nasir gave short speeches exhorting on the need to have regular meets to maintain the silaturrahim.
Recently I received two invitations from two very dear friends to attend their daughter's wedding. Both are from KL as I still consider Taman Tun t0 be still part of KL.
Both invitations came via beautiful cards which I can never dream of using for my own children because of the sheer cost of it. Take a look at them.
The first one on the left was slated for 19th July which was impossible as I was then in Labuan taking care of my granddaugther Balqis. This one came from my classmate Hajjah Zamariah Ismail. I couldn't do much about it.
