Hari Raya with Ramli Hassan in Ipoh.......on September 11, 2010
"As we drove to Rapat Setia, Ipoh this morning (11/9) to look for Ramli Hassan, it was extremely nostalgic for us as it is not very often you get to meet someone after 43 years.We had to call him several times to locate the house and when we arrived, he was standing outside waiting for us. Pretam Singh and his wife Kalwant arrived about 10 mins later. Before and during breakfast we sembang over school times and the years after that. Ramli was working in Mardi his whole life until he opted for early retirement in 1991.He spent most of his retirement years in Teluk Intan and it was about 2 years ago that he moved to Ipoh where 2 of his three daughters are working.And it was through the Facebook activities of his eldest daughter that caught the attention of our dectective Hamzah. That was how we got to be re-connected with him"
