Zuhayr is our first grand child.He is now four years old.He has travelled by plane but never travelled on a real train like the ERL train from Putrajaya to KLIA2.On Monday 21/11/2016 is a historc day for him.It reminds me of my first KTM train ride on 3/1/1965 from Palekbang to Gemas/KL/Tanjung Malim,Perak.He was very scared initially and got excited after we boarded the train.
I took many photos at the railway stations but the photos have her grandma with him.My wife is a very private person,so I am not allowed to post any photos.As grand parents,we enjoyed the ride as much as our grandson Zuhayr.Along the route,he could not keep sitting quiet but showing us what he saw and asking many questions.
Most children love to see aeroplanes.Usually he has to look up to see them,but here he can look down.He was excited to see the plane taxing on the terminal apron and moving for take off.
After one hour loitering at KLIA2,we settled for nasi buryani and orange juice.Alhamdulilah.

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 lesson learnt.Cheers and have a good day.

Ten years ago,I gave this small gift to Abang Rashid when he celebrated his 50th anniversary on 26/8/2006.After a few years of illness ,he passed away just now at about 4pm at HUKL.Al-Fatihah for Allahyarham Tuan Haji Abdul Rashid Abu Hassan.May Allah bless his soul and place him among the inhabitants of Al-Jannah.
I became his next door neighbour for 25 years since 1984.All my children called him Atuk.He was 20 years my senior.Whenever,I balik kampung,he was my house caretaker and when I was out station,he became a grandfather to my kids.My youngest son Khatam Quran with his grandson at his house.When I was living home for my Hajj,he called The Azan and read the do'a for my safety.He prayed at the masjid almost everyday and a devout muslim.Not even once,he hurt my feelings.
Good-bye Abang Rashid...And thank for everything you had done for me and my children,especially for Munir Adib.Jazakallahu Khairan.
