This morning I was very happy to meet a friend about a business proposal.On returning home at 4:30pm,I got a very sad news that my dear friend Allahyarham Dato' Seri Dr Wahid Omar has passed away at his house this afternoon.Life is such..

Before last Ramadan ,I called him but his wife took the call.She informed me the late Dato' Seri was not well.When I asked what day I could visit him,his wife told me that Dato' Seri sleep during the day.So,I decided to visit him during Eidil Fitri.On 2nd Syawal,I called his house but no one answered the call.I presumed that my friend was sick and not in a situation to receive visitors.May be I should call again on better time.Twenty six days later,he passed away.

I knew Dr Wahid when we shared the same office on 1st floor,Wisma PKNS,Jalan Raja Laut since 1984.We remained good and close friend for about 30 years.He was the best structural engineer that JKR has ever had and a man of impeccable intergrity and will stick to his principles of good values and abide by the discipline of his knowledge even against the desire and commands from his superiors.He only feared Allah and I was his witness.Wakaffabillahi shahida..

Ya Allah,please forgive my friend Abdul Wahid Omar.Now,he returned to You,My Lord.Please accept him ,forgive him and put him among the solihin and grant him Al-Jahnah as his final abode.Amin Ya Rabbul 'Alamin.

Cerita Kedaikopi : # 86-31.03.2002

The only way we're going to lose our relevance is if we stop learning..

"I have been reading your 'Cerita Kedaikopi' stories but I still have

not finished reading the previous ones",said

my friend who happens to be one of my avid readers."Well, I took four

years to write 85 stories but please donot

try to read them within a month. Take your time and read them at your

own pace-otherwise you will have indigestion.

By the way, don't forget to read my other weblogs and travel journals as

well", I replied. Then he asked," How come

I do not receive anything this month?

'Honestly, it is easier to read than to write. What more if one is busy

with one's own business and some urgent

family matters to attend to. My wife's uncle, a well known writer once

told me: You can't do both; either you

write or you do business. He is right and spoke from his experience. He

started writing and became a publisher

I was on the Transit Train from KLIA to Putrajaya yesterday.On the way,I saw a dark cloud and I prayed to Allah to delay the rain until I arrived at Putrajaya Sentral where I park my car.On arrival,I was greeted with a down pour!OMG,now,I had to wait for the rain to stop.I was complaining..
There was no way for us to get to our car without getting wet.My wife suggested we walk around the station..May be we can buy dinner to take away.As I walked around reluctantly,we came upon a kiosk selling coffee/cakes.We were offered a small free cup of coffee as part of their product promotion.Immediately I accepted the offer.Having hot coffee on a raining day is great!
As we moved around,we came upon a Kerepok Leko Stall.This is another lovely surprise!We ordered a set of kerepok leko and enjoyed our 'high tea'.By the time we finished our meal,the rain stopped and we went to our car and drove home.

The above is my short story.The moral of the story is for you to interpret and take home a le…
