In Sungei Petani with Zainal Abidin...... on September 12, 2010

On Sunday 12th Sept, the 3rd day of Hari Raya, we took another nostalgic trip....this time our journey was to Sungei Petani to visit another long lost classmate whom we have not seen since we left school in 1967. Wong Poh Lam and his wife came along too.After school, Zainal joined the Language Institute and later studied in UM in 1977 and he spent most of his teaching life in Bentong where he met his wife, Aliah. Later he decided that SP would be the best place to settle down....so he applied and was transferred to SP.Now he and his wife are happily retired there although their children are working in KL and one in Cairo. Altogether they have 9 grandchildren.

Zainal and his wife prepared a sumptious lunch for us as you can see from the pictures.Many thanks Zainal and Aliah

This is not a family photo guys; Look how Zainal has grown over the years!
The 2 young boys standing on either side (I mean the really young ones!) are Mahanum's adopted children from her orphanage.

Our 'Boss' not entirely convinced by Poh Lam's way of enhancing 'chi'!
