Kamal Ahmad

I met Kamal Ahamd at SDAR,Tg Malim way back in 1966.Both of us hailed from Kelantan.He was a Pasir Mas boy and I was from Bachok.Both of us were lucky to be selected to study in a boarding school.Kamal was my junior one year and we bocome good friends for three years in SDAR Tg Malim and later he joined me at TIKL.I became the school headboy in 1972 and he took over my post in 1973.Both of us love science and maths-I became an engineer and he chosed to be a physic teacher and one of the panels of examiners of National Examination Board.
Looking back over the last 50 years,we had good friendship.He was like a brother to me.I was choked to read the sad news of his death.The memories of our shared childhood started a slide show in my mind-the train rides to Tg Malim,weekend cheap matInee shows at Rex,the streets and shops we walked and ate during Tg Malim and KL days.MEE PANJANG/ICE KACANG ETC.Those were the days when we were students..
I wish to relate more stories but I could not proceed futher.Tears started to flow on my cheeks.So,my dear brother AllahYarham Kamal,may Allah accept your iman and amal and place you among the solihin and put you in His Jannah.
Al Fatihah and good bye my friend Kamal for now.InsyaAllah we meet again in the Hereafter.

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…
