About 15 years later..
Today, 26th. December, 2009
This building was formerly a piece of land containing a few residential houses for the Kemaman District officers. One of our friends used to live here- Zahrin Zahid and yes, some of us loved to visit him, not to see him but to play the expensive-Nintendo-game-set. He had a few awesome games and a beautiful ‘adik’ too.. [-admit it]. This is also the main road to the houses of Hamka Hassan, Hisyam Malek and Ghazali Said. -And Mazlinda’s house too. Jalan Dato’. When the town’s name was spelled as Chukai and Terengganu as TRENGGANU. [-and I still hate that change really..]
-And that was 30 years back..
Today, we are re-uniting again in this piece of land, but now in the hall called Dewan Berlian Utama attending a double-event: My Wedding and ‘Da Re-union’. Now you are back in the town of Chukai, a place that is so familiar, so close to us. A place that had given half of our lives ‘bitter-sweet’ memories. A place that we ever called HOME.
Now we are together again. To your eyes you probably see a bunch of strangers in front of you, but they are probably partner or families of our friends. We were friends once, and we still are so they are also welcome.
