SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDIL FITRI MUBARAK

Saudara,

Pucuk pauh delima batu
Anak sembilang ditapak tangan
Biar jauh di Negeri satu
Hilang dimata,dihati jangan

Pucuk silingga,linggalah
Pucuk si jawi-jawi muda
Tanah suci tinggal-tinggal lah
Kampung hamba menanti jua

Pulau Kapas pulau di laut
Pulau bertentang Kuala Marang
Dayung dipampas kemudi dipaut
Itulah tanda dagang nak pulang

Pulau Pandan jauh seberang
Tempat orang mengail puput
Nasib dagangku dagang seorang
Saperti apung di tengah laut

We are Back........Boys.

Guys,so sorry the blog has to be change again,due to technical factors.
Wordpress is a bit complicated and time consuming to handle.
I am rather used to blogspot format.

It is much more user friendly and with lots of extra.
Thus I have to import all the previous article from word press.
I'm sorry,some of the previous commet made could not be retrive,thus been delete for ever.

You would notice, all the posting are published today.
In matter of fact I could nor retrive the actual date of the article.
It was publish ranging from March 2007 till date.
However,you could read the comment made and retrive the actual date of the article at the site http://www.classmonitor.wordpress.com but it will remain domain and inactive.

Further,the name Berita Dari Kawan is more appropriate and enviromental friendly.

At least it hopes to keeps us a fresh with news updates and keeps our bondage built over the years intact.

Happy Reading and Selamat Berpuasa.

Class Monitor

Salam Muhibbah.....Boys Where Are You......


This is the first entree on this blog.

It is meant as a tool to communicate,to retrack,to retrieve to keep in tact, the bondage built over the years which has been built since the class of 1971-1976 at the Malacca High School.

The ideas sprang up in mist of time to accomodate the 200th.yrs of MHS anniversery this year.Some of us left as early as 1976 to persuits life best intrest.Some of us was in MHS or ABC hostel or at home since stepping into the shore of MHS.

Some of us never leave Malacca since the day he was born or some of us are thousand miles away from home to quest the venture of life since leaving MHS in 1976.

Over the collectable years,we quest,we strive,we persuit,we strike at whats life has rewarded us accordingly to our bright stars.Some are brighter than others,some shines over the clouded moon,some shines over 'moon-river' and some doesn't shines at all despite all the ambitious plan one have in mind.

It is a blog not to shown our true colors and the reward that we have attain over the years.

It is merely a one stop centre for all ex-Malacca High School guys,to ponder,to interreact and to retrives the golden memories and friendship we build upon since leaving the ground of Malacca High School after Malaysian Certificate of Education(MCE) in 1976.Be it either Arts or Science stream.Be it, either you got a 1st.,2nd,3rd, or 4th.grade.

We begin to understand grading does not limits our social compartment but is merely a tool to help us achieved what we desire in life.

Lets us used what ever balance we had in life sharing our thoughts together via this humble blog to develop a string of social bondage among us.Thanking the teachers whom had taught us while we we still in our dippers trying to understand why

x + y = xy got to do with living and how to live?

the blog adminstration could be contacted at :


Any contribution articles or past photos of is much appreciated.

Lets persuit the balance of life given to us sharing our thought leading the path to our late comers as a useful reference point.

BerKorban Apa Saja


Allah tidak menyusahkan manusia.
Cukup segalanya untuk umat hambanya menikmati segala kebesarannya.
Hanya kita alpa dan lalai akan keindahannya.

Pertemuan - Prof.Ajmal


Sweet Communion(Written on the occasion of a gathering of High School
students, MHSMCE`76 December 1, 2001)

Today like yesterday I saw in a haze
The edgeless furrows left by the past.
They are the remains of a different age-
Sometimes appearing within wispy grasps,
Sometimes amidst nebulous horizons
That fade between sky and sea.

There are those who see fractious yesterday,
As fragments of unfettered memories-
They fail to see such moments
Present an eternity-
To tutored minds that fleet by time-
Memories are malingering fingers
That coax to the fore sunken thoughts.

Memories are sometimes tumults
That shake the heart with violent emotions,
Or buoy it with a measured, insouciant rhythm.
They are reminders that chime a tune
That is both sad and pleasing all at once.

But those who fear Nostalgia are like birds
Spooked by sounds as inconsequential as rustling
leaves.
And those who care less have forgotten
The sweetness of Communion.

Yesterday holds a myriad of images
For those who care to remember.
Today, my friends, shed the cloaks you have donned
Through ages,
And return to who you were,
As we knew you,
In memory and salutation of Friendship.

A Short Thesis



Could you believe some student do have some imaginary factor when writing essays.He must be tripping on LSD while writing the paper.
Go a head.Its a good laugh too.

Civil War Hero - Written by a Lunatic Student somewhere in New York.

During the Civil War many people influenced because of being such great Heroes. Well only one of these people actually did something. This was a man amongst men it is just a shame that he was killed.

Jesus was probably the main factor why the Divil war was fought the way it was. Not only was Jesus super cool he was really smart. Jesus was born in 1923 about the time of the roaring 20’s (or when you were born Btw did you go to school with him.) Si anyways everyone knew Jesus was something great. When he turned three he mastered the pogo stick everyone knows how hard that damn thing is. Shortly after ge was bored with it so he bought a bike. One day he was out on this nice bike he just spent a lot of money on and some black guy stole it out from underneath him. He ran after him for hours screaming, “nigga stole my bike!” no one did anything at all. This is when he knew it was time for a change. He quickly learned that black people don’t steal scooters. So he asked Marty Melfy could bring him one from the past because those things died along with president Clinton. He got his scooter and rode it from Springfield New York all the way to Olympia Washington, that’s like 5 billion miles that’s e lot even for an airplane. Once he got there he came ip with a plan, this plan seemed crazy, it was called the non-violent protest. He sat around for days until someone just told him he could have the government. He decided that black peoeple needed to stop stealing bikes. Because of this the Civil War broke out. The Civil war was between China and Pakistan. The people fought for about fifty years the war finally ended in 2020 . But only because China was like Jesus we are out of ammo, Jesus simply replied “What do I have to work with?” he only had a banana, 15 seconds later he developed the atom bomb and dropped it on Pakistan and killed a lot of people. The people thought Jesus was moding so they quit and joined a new server. Once the war was over Jesus was hit by a car, and with his last breath he said “warship me!” and died.

As you can see without Jesus the world would be a terrible place. All over the world black people would be stealing your bike. So without him, we all would be helpless.

Teacher response:

There are clear issues with the paper. As one cal tell you seemed to have taken this as a joke. Along with numerous grammatical and structural errors, you failed to prove anything with the presented information. With that I will need to speak with you and arrange a new paper topic.

Abstrack - Memoir Beribu Batu Nautica Part 1


Dato Cpt.Rahim ditengah berinteraksi secara casual dan mudah mesra bersama penulis dan teman-teman seangkatan.

Mengenali Ketua Kita.

Yg.Bhg.Dato Kapten Hj.Abd.Rahim bin Abd.Aziz.
D.S.P.N,P.K (ATM),D.P.T.J,A,M.P(Prk),P.K.T(Sel)


Zaman Persekolahan (1962-1973)

Bagi Putra-Putra MHS yang menuntut disekitar tahun-tahun akhir 60’an dan awal 70’an nama School Captain Abd.Rahim Abd.Aziz (PUTRA MHS 1967-73)
memang tidak asing lagi.

Keserlahan bakatnya dalam kepimpinan dan jati diri dipupok dari rumah oleh ayahanda beliau,Allahyarham Cikgu Abd.Aziz Mahadi,salah seorang guru Bahasa Melayu yang bertugas di Sekolah Menengah Gajah Berang disekitar tahun-tahun 60’an hinggalah ia kembali ke rahmatullah disekitar tahun 1980’an.

Pencapaian academic beliau amat terserlah dengan mendapat Grade I didalam peperiksaan Malaysian Certificate of Education (MCE) pada tahun 1972.
Perlu diingatkan bahawa pencapaian anak-anak Melayu di dalam kelas jurusan Sains di sekitar tahun-tahun 60’an dan 70’an amat kecil jika dibandingkan dengan anak-anak bangsa Tionghua dan India.
Bagi junior-junior , pencapaian akedemic beliau bukan hanya membuka ruang minda kami untuk mencontohi beliau,tetapi dengan daya tarikan serta personality beliau yang senang beramah mesra dan balingan senyuman yang manis membuatkan kami tertarik serta memandang tinggi akan hemah keperibadian beliau.
Dalam kesibukan mengejar paper qualification didalam masyarakat yang boleh dikatakan ‘exam orientated society’ beliau masih boleh bergiat cergas didalam aktiviti diluar bilik darjah(co-co) .Antara aktiviti co-co beliau di sekolah ialah

1. Pasokan Pancaragam Kadet Sekolah.

Diawal tahun-tahuin 70’an Pasokan Pancaragam Kadet MHS melalui suatu transformasi besar dalam segi persembahan , peralatan dan pernampilan sebagai sebuah pasukan pancaragam yang dinamis serta berdaya saing,sama setanding dengan pasokan-pasokan pancaragam dari sekolah-sekolah lain saperti Sek.Men.Pay Fong atau sekiranya diluar Melaka saperti sekolah-sekolah St.John Institution atau Victoria Institution..
Buat pertama kalinya dibumi Melaka dibawah pengawasan Pengetua dinamis, Mr.K.Anandarajan,beliau memperkenalkan alat-alat brass saperti Saxphone,Clarinet,Trombone,Bag Pipe,serta pakaian seragam Pasukan Pancaragam Kadet yang lebih segak dan bergaya jikalau dibandingkan dengan formasi lama yang hanya berbekalkan dengan serunai (flute) dan bugle serta barisan paluan drum dan bass drum.malah uniform seragamnya juga , boleh dikatakan ketinggalan zaman.

School Captain Abd.Rahim, diamanahkan oleh pihak sekolah untuk memimpin Pancaragam Kadet Bersatu MHS dengan transformasi yang lebih segak,gah dan harmoni yang sepadu.
Berpangkatkan Sargeant Drum Major,beliau dengan yakin memimpin suatu pasokan pancaragam kadet yang bersepadu dalam jangka masa transformasi yang singkat.
Berkat tekun dan usaha pancaragam Kadet dibawah kelolaan dan pimpinan beliau,telah berjaya merubah dan merupakan ‘trend settor’kepada sekolah-sekolah di sekitar Melaka.Ini dapat dibuktikan melalui ucapan Allahyaryarham Tan Sri Hamzah Abu Samah selaku tetamu Khas di Majlis Sukan Tahunan Sekolah 1972 yang diadakan secara gemilang di stadium Kubu Melaka.
Antara lain dalam ucapan pembukaan beliau,memuji akan kesepaduan harmonis pasukan Pancaragam Kadet Bersatu MHS dibawah pimpinan Sargent Major Abd.Rahim , menurut beliau ianya setanding dengan Pasukan Pancaragam Polis DiRaja Malaysia pada waktu itu.Tepokan gemuroh membanjiri stadium diatas komen yang diberi oleh Menteri Kebudayaan ,Belia dan Sukan pada waktu itu.

2. Sukan

Beliau mewakili sekolah di peringkat negeri didalam sukan badminton.Barang di ingat sukan badminton pada waktu itu merupakan sukan ‘nation passion’.
Hangat kemenangan Piala Thomas 1967 diJakarta oleh pasukan Negara membanjiri pembukaan gelanggang-gelanggang badminton disetiap pelusok cerok desa pada waktu tersebut maka tidak ketinggalan juga boleh dikatakan Captain kita juga terpengaroh dengan kejagohan Ng.Boon Bee dan Tan Aik Kuang serta Tan Ah Mong dalam permainan badmintonnya.
Malah badminton merupakan sukan bagi keluarga beliau.
Kesemua ahli keluarga beliau terlibat secara langsong didalam sukan badminton.

Anak sulong dari 7 beradik ini ,kelahiran Kg.Air Barok,Jasin Melaka dilahir pada
24hb.Disember 1954.Persekolah pertamanya ialah Jasin English School(JES) sehingga Darjah 3 dan seterusnya ke Bandar Hilir English School(BHES) melangkah ke peringkat menengah di Malacca High School sehingga Tingkatan 6 Atas Sains.
Dilantik menjadi pengawas sekolah sewaktu beliau ditingkatan 4.
Seterus dilantik menjadi Setiausaha Badan Pengawas Sekolah di Tingkatan 5 dan di lantik sepenohnya menjadi Ketua Pengawas Sekolah apabila beliau lulus peperikasaan Malaysian Certificate of Education dengan cemerlang dan melangkah ke peringkat Pre-University.
Sewaktu di Tingkatan 6,beliau dianugerahkan biasiswa Bank Negara Malaysia sejumlah yang besar pada waktu itu dan agak lumayan bagi seorang teruna yang berpotensi.
Namun,cinta pertamanya untuk menjadi seorang akuantan bertauliah bertukar apabila beliau ditawarkan biasiswa Lembaga Pelabohan Kelang untuk melanjutkan pelajaran diPakistan Naval Acedemy didalam bidang Marine Navigation.
Bak kata perpatah Cina,’the first giant steps towards life acheviement begins with a single step”.
Kerjayanya sebagai nakhoda kapal bermula dan tiada ‘de-tour’ sehingga kini.

Kerjaya Bermula.(1973-1983)

Dari situlah cintanya kepada laut bermula.Tamat di Pakistan Naval Acedemy dengan Kepujian,beliau ditauliahkan menjadi 2nd Officer di Lal,Bahadur,Sharstri dari Nautical College,Bombay India pada tahun 1978.Seterusnya sewaktu masih bertugas dengan syarikat perkapalan nasional (MISC) beliau melanjutkan pelajaran nya diRoyal Melborne Institute of Technology,Australia dan ditauliahkan sebagai 1st.Officer (FG) pada tahun 1980 dan menerima scroll penoh sebagai Master of the Sea beliau dari Institusi yang sama pada tahun 1983.

Remembering Micheal Landon -Little House on Prairie


hmmmmm......good tv slot is difficult to get by these days.
The black and white tv era is gone.
Come now the Tritron era.I am noT mourning over the rapid change of technology,but somehow,value slot is difficult to get by these days.Gone withe the 'right'social message in the slot either locally produce or those from the known tv producers ie the states or UK.

I will be glued to the black and white TV set at home every Sat at 8 for Micheal Landon 'Little House on Prairie'.Sort of our 'FELDA Version'.Early pioneers in resettlement after the 'Great Civil War'.
The early beginning of a modern state.The brave families venture to A new world looking for a better future.Giving moral education to their loves one at home without having a a subject on 'Pendidikan Moral'added to their dairly school subject.
Well mannered,admired even the father is jUST a poor farmer.

I thought they were my models those days.
Next 'The Waltons -John Boy' who wanna be a journalist and the main character is my extra added to the cart.
Whose to blame the producer or the tv giants for poor tv slot.However i do enjoy 'CSI' and 'Ugly Betty' thou.

Ingat Tak? ingat......ingat-ingat.........ingatkan!


Yippy,ingat tak?....ingat-ingat....tak berapa ingat, ingat-ingat
mana boleh ingat....dah lama sangat
How long was it?
macam semalam rasanya.

Me queing for the ticket at Rex,mak...dato.....punyanya long que together with the Purple Baju kurong girls.
Full House for the 10 times when I was there.
The book, I read it twice.including 'Jeremy'.
Didn't know what love really means in 1974 but only hits me when I am a bit older.
Menggelupor beb.Well... I continue and pick up from Mat Bangkai.
He's pro.

Well..........we were boys then !


It is indeed a long and winding road.
Thousands and thousands of nautical miles.
Who could forget the 'JukeBox' at Snow White Cafe,or for the 'Ponteng Kaki'
at the Joe's Shop ,the one at Jln.Bandar Hilir near bus stop near CHIJ or the Juke Box at Bunga Raya Ice Cream parlor with the mouth watering'Ice-Cream Jelly'
Who could forget the Cendol of Hj.Mydin opposite the Clock Tower.
Who could forget ABC stall open till late nite the 'mee rebus'
Nasi Lemak Bukit Cina in the morning by Ishak Mazuki brother.
Nasi Lemak Md.Shah aka John Bulat.
Mee Goreng Kakak junction of Jln.Bukit Cina and Jln.Durian Daun.
Hot and lots and lots of extra taugeh.
Now,my daughters wanted is 'extra cheese with my pizza pleased......'
alamak mana ada Pizza Hut,Kenturky or Mc'D.

All we had on some extra special day ie.pay package day on the Federal minor of the$25 was Coke Float and a packet of 'Eve',for those whom are smoking.
Me I am 555 guy.10 cent each but 15 cents for 2.

Somehow I do not fall to the category of 'half past six guy no?for not buying B&H or Mr.Dun.Its jes'being penny wise but pound foolish.

Words of Wisdom


'...Until the story been told by the tiger,the glory of hunting will always belong to the Hunter'

-African Proverb-

Thus, which one are we?....the tiger or the hunter?
Me remind of me the film 'DEER HUNTER'
'mau.....mau.....tak mauuu...."

Uji Minda ANDA...............

Who do you admire most?
Is it this man?

Al.Fatiha Allahyarham Dato Usman Awang (Tongkat Warrant)

or

Micheal Jackson said " I'm a lover .."
Both LOVES THE NATION and they are 'MAN'

hmmmmm......entah.

I contribute together with Juwara Dollah on 'Pasukan Paluan Kompang'a contribution by the Kelab Bahasa Malaysia.It takes a couple of weeks to practice.Cikgu Abu of Semabok neighbour or Dr.Aminuddin was the leader.

Since I did mention the name TYT Allahyarham Tun Abd.Aziz,his eldest son Prefect Mustapha Kamal Tun Abd.Aziz,a ruggby player was my senior by a year.
Good man Mus,honest, very jovial and easy to get along with the school boys.
All I could recallof Mus is his husky and firm voice......'eh........line up...line up...lineup...'
We were only county school boys. There's no 'aires' about it.

Plain,simple ordinary school boys of MALACCA HIGH SCHOOL.

Yes,..it was taken at Hj.Halim Yackob and Srd.Rosman Ibrahim graduation day at ITM then in 1980.Allahyarham Annuar Johari(Annur Joe)was there supporting friends who has made it.

'Ieee....yaaaa...if I cannot make it, but I push and guide those who can make it, its the same as me making it no?'

Itulah pengorbanan Allahyarham Annuar Johari kepada sahabat-sahabatnya.Kehadirannya sahaja di majlis convocation tersebut membuktikan betapa bangganya ia mempunyai teman yang berjaya mencapai pelangi.

MAJLIS KORBAN PUTRA BEKAS PELAJAR SEKOLAH TINGGI MELAKA 2007

'Ya Aziz,Ya Subhan,Ya Sultan,Ya Rahim,Ya Allah Berkatilah Majlis Korban Putra Bekas Pelajar Sekolah Tinggi Melaka 2007'

Humble Servant of Allah




WE ARE THE HUMBLE SERVANT OF ALLAH

Some Wise Advise.

Tempat : Mesjid Jamek Paya Ikan,Melaka

Tarikh dan Waktu : Selepas Sholat Ju'mmat Sept.1980


Bertemu dengannya secara kebetulan selepas sholat Jummat di mesjid.Saya pasti tarikhnya kerana 2 minggu selepas bertemu dengannya saya keLondon dengan tujuaan melanjutkan pelajaran.
Di renong mata saya dengan tepat,

'Cikgu,dia menangguk.Kami bersalam.Cikgu mengajar dimana sekarang tanya saya.
Saya dah pencen...Perbualan kami agak simple tapi mesra.Cikgu telah mendidik saya sewaktu saya di Tingkatan 3.Terima Kasih cikgu saya cuba mengakhiri pertemuan itu tetapi dia mula membuka laluan memberi kata dua pada saya dan ingin saya berkongsi bersama-sama.
Begini katanya.

'mie.....Tidak ada Suatu Guru didalam dunia ini yang ingin melihat anak muridnya menjadi seorang 'PENCURI'

Benar kata-kata hikmah beliau.
Sehingga kini kata-kata tersebut disematkan dihati sanubari.

Beliau ialah guru kita

Allahyarham Cikgu Hj.Masda Wongso.Al Fatiha

Remembering Prefect Paul Kwong

Paul Kwong was 2 years my senior if I'm not mistaken,same batch with Prefect Philips Tan and Prefect Dr Aminnuddin Ahmad.A Lord Minto if I'm not mistaken.
Active in Cadet and swimming.
The happy smiling prefect.
All the time with a genuine smiling face and with a good hearted laugh.
He was in BHES,same as I do.Remember him was quite plum.
What we boys used to tease each other fatty boom-boom.
Never once find any fault in me.
Yeap..... me the 'Dennis the Manace' type.
Pretty handsome guy when he was young,no wonder he was selected to be in the TLDM Cadet Officer programme and serve the nation with pride.
I am not sure of his senior ranking in TLDM but I remember in 1976 while I was in Form 5 he came to school with all white the standard OfficerS official dress as in Richard Gere film 'An Officer and A Gentleman'.

Way back in 1981 if I am not mistaken,I bounce into him at Kelvin Road,Highbury N1where I live next to his campus,The Polytechnic of North London Law Faculty.
The diffrence in most English Universities and Polytechnic then,but now been up graded to University the site were then decentralised.Thus,one find the building site ziz-zagging between faculties and I find it cumbersome to travel.
Campus are not big but the distance to cycle if it is summer and walking in winter will definately turns one easily cold and tired.But during term and in between terms my pocket is full of Mars Bars Choc.Especialy during the middle of the months.Eating choccolate makes me alert and healty coz' its made of milk.

Well...back to the story board..I approach Paul and introduce myself to him and he remembers.That about it, we never meet up again till 1990 if I'm not mistaken.I meet him again at Jalan Raja Chulan front of AMBANK HQ, he was doing his pupilage than in KL.A bright young up coming lawyer, I suppose at that particular time.
Catching the glimps of the utube slot well Paul sir,we do am old now but I am sure there is some sprits of togetherness since our roots is MELAKA and dammed proud to be "A HIGH SCHOOL BOY".

Arabic Conversation Game Show Anybody.......??

Guys ,this slot is awsome.Have a good laugh and a bit of escapism is good for our health.Could you imagine if some one put a game show of Quran Recital or Bahasa Arab coversation slot among us as a game show.

Mencari Permata Yang Hilang

Dalam mengimbau sejarah MHS diera kita iaitu ditahun2 pertengahan
70'an kita lihat dan memandang tinggi akan nama-nama yang terukir
diScroll Board MHS yang terpampang didinding MHS.

Kita akur akan usaha gigih sehingga tersuhor nama-nama mereka dan ada
diantara mereka sekarang hanya tinggal nama dinisan mereka.Jasa dan
bakti mereka pada masyarakat mungkin tidak seberapa tetapi nama-nama
mereka terukir sebagai pelupor anak-anak bangsa diMHS.


Antara barisan hadapan diMHS sekitar pre -Malaya dan tersuhor dialam
akedemic dan kerjajaya mereka sehinggakan mereka menjadi idola anak
bangsa ialah


Tahun-Tahun 20/30an.

(Buat Rakan Taulan Semua)

Terasa Sejuk dijiwa ini
bila mendengar takbir mu
lalu aku sahut dalam senyum sinis..
kau yang haq
menggigil aku mencari pengertian mu
merantau kami untuk mengenal mu
berlapar kami diajar oleh mu
terdengkur kami mengenang mu
bersyhadu kami teringat kalam mu
tersungkur kami mengenang dosa terdahulu
bertabur kami memberi kerana mu

Tanpa kau aku ....mati
Tanpa aku pasti sangsi

Aku lari.. mencari
aku nari.. menyerah diri
aku tantang penoh kemanjaan
aku lindungi saban semalaman
supaya mengenal hanya yang hakiki
supaya tubuh mu ini akur
dan tidak pernah dengkur dalam dengungan

The Danger of Blogging


The Dangers of Blogging

I don't use my blog as a space to rant about things I can't handle in real life, or to attack, retaliate or hit out at someone I know personally with whom I can't do so in person. I believe if you can't face up to reality, don't create an alternate reality just so you can be boss in your little corner of cyberspace.
What prompted me to write this now? Simply, I witnessed a couple of people who used their blogs as an extension to an argument they had otherwise relinquished in real life. In reality, they said they had spoken their piece and was done with it. In the blogosphere, it seems they aren't actually done with it yet. Too often people use blogs to make themselves out to be the victims in an argument. Last month, there was a similar incident where, again, the person went on her blog and ranted about how she had been wronged. Like I said, if you can't face up to reality, don't use an alternate one to validate youself. It's dangerous to live in an unreal environment and think that the response you get in that space is somehow valid. Your readers and commentors don't know you personally; the only side of you they see is what they read on your blog. Some commentors can be dangerous too. "Oh, don't worry, I've never met you but you feel like an old friend to me, and I know you're not that kind of person." I think ignorant comments like this do not help the delusioned blogger. If you've never met the person, then you've never met that person. Don't think that you know them just by their online persona, because nine out of ten times, people's online personae are the complete opposite of who they really are. It's also dangerous because things become one-sided and no one really knows the truth except to rely on the blogger's version of it. And what's worse is when some bloggers decide to name the people they're ranting against. Then you're involving a person's reputation and if your story is half-true or fictitious (as most of these rants are anyway), you could be held accountable for defamation. My rule in blogging is simple. If I can't handle it in real life, then I don't blog about it. What's the point? What good would it really do? Isn't it akin to talking to myself? If I have a problem with someone, I duke it out person to person, face to face. I admit, I've tried out a bitching space before, but I got tired of it because my problems didn't really go away, and nothing felt like it had any closure. And then there are those who confuse being outspoken with being rude and obnoxious. Hell no, they're not one and the same. Bitching is not being outspoken. It's just angry, pointless and unconstructive ranting. Unless, of course, it's not personal and/or to parody an issue or something

Poppies (Bunga Poppy)

From blood, from pus that rots in the soil,
from skeletons that have lost their lives,
snatched by weapons,
the result of war maniacs who kill love,
the red flowers bloom beautifully, requesting to be adored.

Those who live on are remnants of life, full of sufferings,
wizened, bent, deformed, maimed and blind,
war in retrospect is full of horrors;
they remember now, in bitterness, in solitude.

Others lost children, husbands and sweethearts,
lost their sources of support, their livelihood,
they live in starvation,
thousands widowed, thousands disappointed,
thousands tormented;
millions of orphans live on, and beg.

The war maniacs have killed all love!
war raged and found profit in colonial lands!
war raged and killed babies in their cradles!
war raged, and destroyed cultural values

Poppies are the flowers of fallen soldiers,
flowers drenched red with blood, full of horrors,
we hate war, full of killing!
we cry for a never-ending peace!

Terkuburnya Seorang Rakan -Srd.Annuar Johari

Kami bersama-sama mu anak-anak ku,hanya kalian perlu dilakukan ialah mengangkat telephone itu....Insyallah yang berat sama dipikul,yang ringan sama dijinjing.
Tanda Simpati,Tanda Kasih,Tanda Eratnya Kita Yang Tidak Ternilai.Srd.Rosman Ibrahim bersama balu Allahyarham Annuar Johari
Bersama-sama ahli keluarga allahyarham Annuar Johari id pusaranya di Cheras Batu 9


Ke Makam Bonda

Kami mengunjungi pusara bonda,
Sunyi pagi disinari suria,
Wangi berseri puspa kemboja,
Menyambut kami mewakili bonda.

Tegak kami di makam sepi,
Lalang-lalang tinggi berdiri,
Dua nisan terkapar mati,
Hanya papan dimakan bumi.

Dalalm kenangan kami melihat,
Mesra kasih bonda menatap,
Sedang lena dalam rahap,
Dua tangan kaku berdakap.

Bibir bonda bersih lesu,
Pernah dulu mengucupi dahiku,
Kini kurasakan kasihnya lagi,
Meski jauh dibatasi bumi.

Nisan batu kami tegakkan,
Tiada lagi lalang memanjang,
Ada doa kami pohonkan,
Air mawar kami siramkan.

Senyum kemboja menghantar kami,
Meninggalkan makam sepi sendiri,
Damailah bonda dalam pengabdian,
Insan kerdil mengadap Tuhan.

Begitulah bakti kami berikan,
Tiada sama bonda melahirkan,
Kasih bonda tiada sempadan,
Kemuncak murni kemuliaan insan.

-Dato Usman Awang @ Tongkat Warrant

Allahyarham Md.Yusof Bin Sulaiman (1958 -2006)



'The Pen Is Mighter than the sword'.
Itu adalah kata-kata hikmah orang-orang bijak pandai.Ma'afkan akan ketulian saya akan perjuangan Srd.seangkatan kita ini.Sungguh saya tidak mengikuti perkembangan rakan taulan saya ini semenjak meninggal MHS pada 1976.
Yusof yang saya kenal memang seorang yang agak pendiam dan bijak,Pembahas yang natural.malan kami bertemu di peringkat akhir Pertandinggan Bahas antara Form diimana kelasnya Form 4 Sci I diwakili oleh Dr.Razak(Skg.Dato)dan kembarnya Dr.Rani dan beliau sendiri dan kelas saya Form 4 Arts 1 diwakili oleh saya sendiri,Srd.Juwara Dollah dan Srd.A.Rahim Dolmat selaku Ketua Pembahas.
Pemain bola,hanya satu-satu pemain bola yang saya kenal yang sanggup membeli Majallah Bola 'Shoot'keluaran setiap hari Khamis.'The Knowledgeable Footballer'.

Email yang dikirimkan oleh seorang rakan berkenaan dengan Allahyarham benar-benar mengoncang minda saya seharian.

Mungkinkah ianya Suatu Perjuangan Yang Belum Selesai?
Article tersebut diemail oleh Srd.Rosman kepada saya.Ianya untuk kita merenong sejenak akan sumbangan kita kepada semesta.
Adakah ianya selari dengan Habul Mina'nas Habulum Innallah?

Belasungkawan Untuk Mohd Yusof Sulaiman

Mon | Jul 17, 06 | 03:17:36 PM Oleh Taufek Yahya KUALA LUMPUR, 17 Julai (Hrkh) - Bagi para pembaca mingguan Harakah di awal dekad 1990-an, nama Mohd Yusof Sulaiman bukanlah asing bagi mereka. Tulisannya mudah difahami dan isu yang dibawa olehnya saban minggu menarik perhatian untuk dibaca. Mereka yang jahil ekonomi pun mampu mengikuti tulisan Yusof yang penuh fakta. Beliau tidak pernah menyukarkan pembaca kolumnya dengan teori-teori ekonomi yang berat-berat. Malah perbincangan sesetengah topik ekonomi yang pada asasnya berat, boleh menjadi ringan jika diulas oleh Yusof. Itulah kelebihan Yusof Sulaiman, anak kelahiran Melaka, graduan ITM dan menimba pengalaman awal bekerja dengan beberapa syarikat konglomerat termasuk bertaraf sogoshosha di Kuala Lumpur. Para petugas Harakah memang mengenali manusia bertubuh gempal, rendah dan rendang, berkaca mata tebal, berkumis dan berjanggut dan masih mempertahankan gaya rambut ‘sikat tepi’ pelajar sekolah dekad 70-an dan 80-an. Dia akan datang ke Harakah pada setiap kali deadline, selalunya tepat jam 6.00 petang secara senyap-senyap, membaca akhbar dan kemudiannya menghadap monitor komputer untuk menyiapkan kolumnya. Tulisannya padat, tatabahasanya lengkap, aliran ideanya lancar persis seorang editor ekonomi sebuah akhbar. Pada hemat penulis, dia adalah segelintir kolumnis yang jarang memeningkan kepala editor. Tulisannya bukan sahaja diikuti pembaca Harakah di kampung-kampung dan bandar, ahli biasa dan pemimpin parti, malah diikuti oleh pakar ekonomi di menara gading. Dalam satu forum ekonomi anjuran persatuan induk mahasiswa di UKM Bangi, Yusof mendapat pengiktirafan Dr Jomo Kwame Sundram, profesor ekonomi Universiti Malaya yang kini menjawat Pen. Setiausaha Agung (Ekonomi) Pertubuhan Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu (PBB). Dr Jomo yang bersama Yusof menjadi panel jemputan forum ekonomi itu memuji tulisan Yusof dalam Harakah yang dianggapnya berupaya mengulas isu-isu ekonomi kontemporari secara berkesan. Sikap Yusof yang pendiam boleh berubah sekelip mata. Kadang-kadang beliau boleh ketawa besar apabila mendengar perkara-perkara yang melucukannya. Rakan-rakan mengenalinya sebagai seorang yang cepat mesra walaupun pendiam. Perasaan simpatinya kepada musibah yang melanda rakan-rakan cukup mendalam. Satu perkara yang melucukan tentang Yusof adalah dia tidak pandai memandu kereta sendiri. Walaupun mampu berkereta, memandu bukanlah aktiviti yang disukainya. Dia lebih suka menyewa teksi ataupun menaiki bas untuk ke sana-sini. Pernah dia bersungut tidak mahu gambarnya diletakkan di kolum tulisannya di Harakah. “Bukan takut, tapi malu kalau ada pembaca Harakah yang perasan bila aku naik bas mini,” katanya diikuti ketawa besar. Beliau mengambil keputusan untuk berhenti kerja dan memulakan perniagaan. Sejak itu, tulisan Yusof mahupun kelibatnya tidak lagi kelihatan di Harakah. Kesibukan mengurus perniagaan menghambat masanya yang berharga. “Sibuk sangat, tak ada masa nak tulis,” katanya ketika dipujuk untuk kembali menulis. Malangnya Yusof tidak berapa menyerlah dalam apa juga perniagaan yang diceburinya. Mungkin itu salah satu kelemahannya yang ketara. Tetapi manusia mana yang tidak punyai kelemahan. Dalam kegagalannya itu, Yusof sebenarnya berjaya mengasaskan beberapa bidang baru urusniaga yang menjadi ikutan pengusaha Islam kemudian daripadanya. Yusoflah peniaga Melayu Islam pertama di Malaysia yang membawa kurma Rotab terus daripada Iran. Sebelum daripada itu, umat Islam negara ini hanya mengenali kurma kering yang diimport daripada Mesir, Saudi dan lain-lain negara Timur Tengah. Kebanjiran kurma segar (rotab) daripada Iran, hasil usaha Yusof, memeriahkan lagi bulan Ramadhan al-Mubarak. Ketika menjadi pengurus Kointrade Sdn. Bhd., sebuah anak syarikat milik Koperasi al-Hilal (M) Berhad, Yusof merintis peluang niaga dengan rakan-rakan niaga dari negara-negara Timur Tengah, Indonesia dan Turki. Tidak semua usaha niaga yang dirintisnya berjaya, tidak kurang juga yang memberikan imej negatif kepada peribadinya. Namun keberaniannya menjalinkan usahasama dengan rakan-rakan niaga dunia Islam boleh dijadikan contoh. Kejayaan juga kegagalannya, wajar dijadikan pengajaran berguna dan sempadan kepada mereka yang ingin menceburkan diri di bidang perniagaan antarabangsa. Berita pemergian Mohd Yusof Sulaiman pada petang Ahad, 16 Julai 2006 di pejabatnya di Taman Seri Gombak memeranjatkan rakan-rakannya. Jenazahnya di bawa pulang ke negeri asalnya Melaka dan dikebumikan di kampung halamannya di Bachang. Semoga roh Allahyarham ditempatkan bersama golongan orang-orang yang saleh.
AL-FATIHAH UNTUK MOHD YUSOF SULAIMAN.

My Patrotic Unsung Hero Friend -KM Mohd Yackob





KM Mohd Yackob (MHS CLASS OF 1972-1976)

We celebrate,yes we celebrate the Merdeka Day with all the pomp-pomp.Normally,in Malacca during our schooling days the morning with all the marching Band at the old used to be 'Padang Palawan' but now its 'Padang Jutawan.'

Pengsan beb...panas terik with the heavy boot if you are a Cadet Corp but to some boys thats the day to know some MGHS chicks with their purple baju kurong.

Now,this is how my dear friend KM Mohd Yackob shows and spent his own money to shows the real meaning of partiotism,by painting his family home roof top at Kg.Morten with the 'Jalor Gemilang' and The Melaka flag.

Show some respect boys to this budding sailor of mind.5 time round the world and all the mix varities spicies of Allah he has meet.That the way to go KM,down to earth and humble guy.12 years a sailor with MISC and now back home with family and kids.

Grand Cifu Tun Tan Cheng Lock



He was our alma,an old wiseman of the nation and the dad to our former late Finance Minister late Tun Tan Siew Sin both old boys of Malacca High School.A colorful life.

In honoring the grand old cifu,our Istana Budaya presented a musical play of his colorful contribution to the nation,come on boys.....a little bit of culture will do us good.Fill the auditorium with all MHS alumi.What I hear the attendees on all Istana Budaya events is in a sad state.The gate collection does not cover the actors wages and any event held is heavely subsidies by the kementerian Warisan.
So do the Petronas Philhamonic Orkestra,the state of art of PETRONAS auditorium is an adventure by it self.
We don't have to be a Dato' or Tan Sri to appreciate culture beb!
Be a spot.See you there.

Well..............take a Break...

TIPS FOR ORGANISING A SUCCESSFUL CLASS/FORM REUNION

The webmaster Mr.TW Kang sent an email pertaining to the subject matter.
Thank you sir, for the assistant and willing to share with us your experience.I find it informative thus we could learn from it.It comes handy.

By TW Kang

To organise a successful and memorable Class/Form Reunion for your Class/Form takes sweat, time, commitment and sacrifices. You also need to be diplomatic, persistent and sometimes aggressive in order to get your old schoolmates committed to the forthcoming event.

With each of us pursuing our careers, dreams or bringing up our families, you will be surprised how fast time has gone past since you and your classmates/form mates left the School. This was the place where you all used to study, play, fight and bond together.

However, all the effort and sacrifices made in organising the event, will be rewarded when you meet and catch up with your long lost friends whom you have not met for the past 20, 30 or 40 years.

How to get Started

1.Organising such a daunting event can be difficult at the beginning BUT if certain actions/tips are taken in advance at least 1 year ahead before the event, the event can be organised successfully. Getting a core group or Pro-tem organising committee at the beginning is important as they have to set a date for the Reunion at least one year ahead.

2.This is important as advance notice of the Reunion must be given to old friends residing overseas via email so that they can plan ahead, should they want to attend the Reunion with their spouses/children. If not, too short a notice will negate their plans for attending the Once-a-lifetime Reunion.

3.Old Class Photos can be handy
A tool I find useful in locating old friends is to have a copy of the Class photos of different classes. Nominate a person of each class to seek out their classmates and obtain their email addresses or handphone numbers. A person conversant in Excel should be appointed to collate and update all the names, email addresses, contact telephone numbers and place them into the correct Classes. At the beginning, the list will be short but rest assured, as the time of the event nears, the list will grow with time.

4.Notifying the Event
Using the growing list of names and addresses, notices can be sent out via email or via SMS firstly to inform of the forthcoming Reunion and to confirm their attendences or not. By getting their confirmation or rejection will help your committee to plan for the number of expected participants, work out the costs involved and later book the venue and beverages for the Reunion.

5.Draw up a simple but comprehensive Programme
As the event nears, the Pro-tem committee can draw up supplementary itinararies before leading to the main Reunion event. Some classmates may want to visit their Alma mater, or some may want to have a game of Golf. Some of the spouses may want to enjoy themselves by going to a Spa or some long lost friends who reside overseas, may want to tour around the city before the Reunion. Small gatherings can be organised for various groups in order to satisfy their needs.

During the Event

For the main event proper, a few important things must be undertaken namely:-

1.Do have a jovial Master of Ceremony for the Reunion. Hire one if necessary so that all of you can enjoy and catch up with your classmates. A good MC can ensure the Reunion go on smoothly during the night as everyone will be busy talking to old friends and tend not to follow any set schedules, if any.

2.Hire a competent photographer or video photographer so that the historic event can be recorded in print or in digital format. These digital photos or video captures the event and can be presented to those who have attended the function later via compact discs.

3.Food and drinks are important but it is not necessary to order too much as most friends want to catch up with one another. Eating and drinking are secondary activities.

4.If old teachers or principals are invited, honour them by asking them to speak a few words to all those present for the night. They will feel honoured if given, to say a few words.

5.Getting a simple Welcome Banner stating the venue and date made and strung across the entrance, can make your friends feel good as they have come a long way to attend the event.

Moreover, a Group Photograph can be taken under the banner to mark
the historic occasion before the Reunion comes to an end.

6.You will be surprised how time flies and very soon, all your classmates will say “Adieu” and “Be seeing you Again in the next Reunion” before the night is out.

LETS DO IT BOYS.

Thanks Bangka-I,for the motion of Patriotism.
In principle I agreed with the line written.
Well said,after all one man poison is other mans meat.
However, I find another puzzling gig-saw puzzle to be sort out by the Gen-X.
It is really mind boggling situation.Read it and question ourself,are we giving it away?

My concerned is purely acedemic.
More inputs of local brain to fight the cause is needed now and near future.
Berkat pertabalan Sri Paduka Baginda Sultan Mizan,lets say,
'each and every square inche of this Peninsular is protected,care for and cultivated'.

In the mean time Gen-X, 'LEARN FROM HISTORY'

70s Icons for Hostel Dwellers

While we are on the subject of hostel life - notwithstanding that I stayed at a differest hostel altogether - I'd like to share a few memories with all of you.

Remember perennial Adidas Stan Smith? What about that pair of hardy Lee Chetopa Twill? And those wonderful Fruit of the Loom T-shirts that came in a few hundred colours? Remember these icons of the 70s? I suspect you do, even though we can't find these these in the local shopping mall anymore. Isn't this a shame?

OK, I'll admit that we will no longer look as good in Chetopa Twills and Fruit of the LoomT-shirt like we once did (frankly, they were never designed to fit anyone with a 42-inch waistline), I still miss them. I guess their nostalgic value far outweighs their aesthetic contribution to our present physique; for me, at least.

But looking back, these things weren't cheap, were they? I remember my first pair of Stan Smiths set me back a whopping RM60! And at RM80, my first Chetopa Twill broke my grandma's bank account. And these were 1976 prices! Unless I am badly mistaken, a clerk at Malaysian Airlines only earned RM175 a month back then. Do the maths, babe!

Now, some 30 years later, even with a reasonble job, all I can afford is the occasional RM10 shirt from the reject bin of FOS. And for the first time (this is maybe 30 years too late), it occurs to me, how did our parents afford to give us all those things?

Maybe they dealt drugs and did bank jobs when we weren't looking...

Remember,the days one kapok guitar sharing with 100 other hostelite at ABC.I remember well,the G,Am,C cords on 'My Sweet Lord'by the late George Harrison.Fauzi(Komeng) will jam that cords the whole day.

Enjoy this one too.

On being patriotic

I am flattered that I have been invited to contribute to this blog. But don't know why I was invited in the first place: I have never been elected to the position of class monitor - ever! It's a personality thing - any position of responsibility just doesn't mesh well with my personality (or so they say). So, for better or for worse, here I am.

Since the last post was on the subject of patriotism, I guess that is where I'll pick up from.

I'm stumped (even before I've started). So what's new? Anyway, I guess most people will take patriotism to be loyalty one's country. But my question is, at what point in time does one become a patriot? Do you qualify as a patriot if you are someone who feels discomfort at the prospect of misplacing (and subsequently losing) your identity card? Or must you be willing to die a horrible death a the the end of an enemy soldiers' bayonet before you can call yourself one?

My point is, we may all think of ourselves as patriots. But does that qualify us one? I hardly think so. In the same breath, I am also of the opinion that we must not be automatically disqualified just because we don't sing patriotic songs in the shower every morning. Somewhere, there is a line that must be crossed before we can call ourselves a patriot. Just where that line is drawn, is beyond me.

But that raises another question: Does it matter whether or not we have the right to call ourselves patriots? After all, I am sure Hitler and Pol Pot (or T. Blair, or even G. Bush for that matter) saw themselves as patriots. Look at what happened in those cases.

So, where do I stand? As long as I don't feel a need to apologise to any non-Malaysian for my being partial to 'durian' and 'belacan', I guess I'll consider myself a patriot. Not that it matters...

How Patrotic Are We

Habul Al Watan Min Al'Iman.

The love for a nation is part of iman.We were groom from an early age,instilled the discipline via Brass Band,Scouting or in the Cadet Gerak Khas.There was no such programe of National Service then.
The yearly training at camp Sungai Udang was much look forward by all boys.Its a life oppunities to hold a M16,learning to clean up an SLR,pistol,playing with the communication gadgets.
The annual 2 weeks camp was an adventure of a life time for the boys to experience the life of an army camp.To some it was the beginning of an ambition to be selected to the Royal Militery College only with impressive LCE result.A few of my batch did,Sdr.Rosli Md.Tan,Dato'Lt.Commander Badrulzaman Kamarulzaman of TLDM,the twins,Dr.Razak and Dr.Rani,Sdr.Jamil Md.Noor,an avid sportsman.
Me,however was not selected to either of them coz'selection for the annual camp at Sungai Udang were based on platoon.Only one platoon were selected and not mine.How frusrated.As for RMC,I did struggle trying to get a place but nothing near it.

How ever my Mak Teh sponsor me to the Out Bound School in Lumut for a month learning how to survive in pressing time while waiting for my MCE 76 result.It sure do taught me how to survive and taught us the of quality of leadership,team sprite and team work.
Thanks Mak Teh.'Budi mu dikenang'.

I might not be in the uniform but I do hold up to this beloved country.There a link on my seminar paper on such issues delivered IN IIU,Gombak.

Its call,Penal Code 121 - A Restropective Effect and Enforcement on Chin Peng And Malayan Communist Party Members.

Enjoy reading it and question ourself are we patrotic in the true sense of the word?

Local Boys v Sabah Boys


Thanks 'The Hostel Boys' for the old photos.
I could recognised some of my senior.Srd.Idris Jamalludin for one the Discovery Nite 74' champion with the song 'Dunia Ku',Annuar Md.Nor,Allahyarham Srd.NorAzahari(Captain),Allahyarham Srd.Annuar Johari,Srd.Razak Hitam,Srd.Yazid Kassim,Srd.Halim Yackob,Srd.Norazam Yusof,Srd.Rosman Ibrahim,Srd.Nordin Ahmad.Sanny my junior, etc.

Yes,its a mixed brunch.I was at MHS hostel for only a year during my form 3.Form 3 was acrucial year.LCE examination year.Ayah was worried about my acedemic performance thus he dragged me to be in High School Hostel for that year.Form 1-2,I was at ABC.I was at home in year 4th and 5th.

Yes,ABC Hostel,some prejudism against the ABC Hostelite.
Some suggested that it was a Gangster Hostel for boys.
No,it is not true at all.Abang Abd.Halim Abd.Rahman,top Malacca and MHS student 1972 was an alumi of ABC ,so do our Dr.Baba,the famous mercy volunteer whom made the head line for being shot at the buttok in Kabul.
Its a mix hostel from boys all around Malacca and from various Malacca School.We blend together well.
However,you would find the ego trip among MHS guys against other school such GBS,SDHS,ACS,SFI ect.
Yes, in sports we were definately rivals particularly with SFI in hockey,rugger with SDHS.
Those guys come from far away as Machap Umbu and as determine and as able as any other MHS guys.This prejudism arise from lack of understanding among our own back yard.
Some hails from Jasin,Mesjid Tanah or Linggi or as further as my buddy Mong ie.Hamdan Hassan,Wan Shah and Nuraddin Wahab did fromBukit Senggeh,Selandar.
Srd.Hamdan Hassan.
(Has anyone knows where he is or have met him or his hp.number pleased contact Class Monitor pleased)
Thus,this social stigma are stick among us.
To some,it remain in us until today.
We were just ordinary boys hoping to achieve the best what the town could offered to us coz'
that was the first time we stayed and began to learn the town lingo.

Some of the boys whom stayed at MHS hostel during Form 1 has to move out to ABC to make room for the Sabah Boys.
Yes,I remember some Panggabion a/l Dusuggun from Kelait or Sandakan bah!
They were rich.
The Yayasan Sabah provides them with lot of cash.
We were penniless,meleleh air lior,almost every day those Sabah Boys bersantap satay at the hostel.Wak satay will be there sharp at 3 pm.

Some hot head lion, like Srd.Amran Latiff hails from Ramuan Cina Kecil,Lubok Cina will definately gives them a fling any moment even though fight does not occurs but the jelousy and aggrovation arise due to the extra material they had from their sponsor.
Best radio with player with cassette and being the pet of Cikgu Mat Sekeping off course!

That was the reason for the aggrovation,some boy just got to leave for ABC to make way for the Sabah boys.Moving to ABC means having to walk to and from for 1km.to school.While the MHS hostlite was having their lunch right after school,we were on our way either walking or cycling in the hot sun .Worst,upon arriving, the menu would be Nasi and Kari Ikan Jaws.
That is the reason why I could not recall 1/2 of the guys coz the other 1/2 is Sabahans.

How We Copy Among Each Other


Yes....copy,photostate,zerox,cut and paste,copy during term exam,during monthly test particularlyduring Mr.Wee Meng Yong modern Maths paper.
We copy song,fashion style etc.etc.includind Bob Marley!

I do copy from friend when come to class home work or monthly or term test.
Does that means I am a cheater? I suppose I get away with it coz I was a minor and futher I could justified it coz more that 3 red in the report card we were march off to the Cadet Room.But not the major Public Examination MCE 76.
It was my answer and that was my result and that was the reasons for getting such a pathtatic result.

During LCE 1973,I took mine in 1974,there one guy from the last class obtain an aggregate of 10,reason was LCE was base on A,B,C,D,E answer ie. objective answer,thus,all believes he got his lucky charm on him during the exam day.All he bought with him during the exam day was a 2B pencil and a dice!!


Now we do it quite often,cut and paste.

I did a copy and paste from mine which off course it was from a link I cannot precisely remember It was in my Febuary 2006 archives and take a close look at todays news.Make a comparision between both.

Is there any similarity ?
I suppose its has noble intention.I agrees with the lesson taught from the article.
That is what I personelly call positivism jornalism!!

Thought pondering isn't it?

How We Learn The English Language


Writer and Srd.Rosman Ibrahim

We might stumble upon any languanges which is not ours.


Very single human in this universe would agree to it.Since English was our media of instruction at school there were hilarious moment when one uses English among us.From various mixed back ground,we blend together learning and conversed it that language with various slang,accent according to our limited vocabulary.I remember the form teacher of the Remove Class,(its a class meant for the guys from the Malay medium transfered to the English medium before the student is absorbed in the normal classes after a year intensive English),I cant precisely remember the teachers name but he introduced a fine system among the student, whom wew caught specking Malay instead of English in class.
Could imagine the amount of fine the monitor collected from the offender.......


Some specks with confident despite a few draw back in grammer and obviously he hails from the small town.Manglish,you knowlah what I mean.


Some stumble with only a word of 'yes' or 'no' all the way during his entire schooling life.
Yes..we do have a story, it befall to my budding buddy, Class and Hostel mate.From Masjid Tanah,Kg.Durian Daun if I am not mistaken.Last met him at my office AMEB in 1993.
Bless the soul of my beloved friend Allahyarham Srd.Annuar Bin Johari.- Al-Fatihah.



With his genuine smile and only a 'yes' or yes-yes-yes.....sir or no..no...no sir, will land us a few stiches in class but he has a golden heart.
Petit and stout in size 'Annor Joe' as he is passionately known among us.An avid footballer.
He facies himself playing like the late Allayarham Mokhtar Dahari our 'Super Mok'
Yet he strive the urban wave after MCE 76' and was attached to DBKL right away after school till his last breath.May Allah shows mercy on his great soul.Amin.

I wrote something worth reading about how we guys master the language.This one for you Nurad sir.Here's the link and itS call 'Old Vintage Wine' .


Enjoy it while it last.
