Dah lah tu...Baliklah - Student Nostalgic 1978-1984

I feel nostalgic today,looking back at the long and winding road which I took over the years.The memories came running after Fahmy my eldest came home yesterday with a couple of his band wagon from campus.Yes,Fahmy is reading Law at Ahmad Ibrahim Kuliyyah of Law IIU,Gombak.Seeing those fresh faces,determine and daring to go remind me of my hey days including Zees's at UKM where else I go abroad.
Well,actually they came for Mak Su's home warming tahlil cum berbuka at her new house.Congratulation Mak Su,those back aching days are over.In matter of fact Mak Su's bought the house as a gift to apak and mak.She and Mak Teh boards with apak all this while. Mak Su's decided to get a spacious space,after considering current Apak's and Mak's health condition.
Well Apak,it a long story.I will tell about this great man later in the blog.
Keep in tourch bloggers.The story of The Unsung Hero.

Seeing Fahmy's mate from campus brings back memories of 1980's, when I first steps the shore of good olde England.As George Bernard Shaw once wrote 'if you are tired of London,you're tired of life' how true.
London remind me of the laughters ,cries and friendship I developed over the years and uptill today I am still the 'God Father' to my buddy Julian daughter Zsa-Zsa.
Those memories are precious.I might take the wrong steps but it was a learning how to learn process and learned it I do.
How could I forget the cold winter Raya's,hot summer raya, queing for a plate of mee siam and a twick of kueh raya at Malaysian Hall 42,Bryston Sq.W1
How could I forget sitting for exams in the middle of Raya?
How could I forget sleeping at Forgensee Lake,Black Forest Germany,the free flow of River Rhur and the auto bahn trampping during Raya 1983 with Tajam.

Hmmmm..it is part of me. In this bless month, I ask forgiveness from friends where ever you are.Some of them are still in Europe and USA for the reasons they themselves knows best.
All I can say.'...BEB..DAHLAH TU BALIKLAH !,ayam itik pun ada reban tau!!'
When meeting with friends when asked:'......amacam?
my standard answer is '..alahai....umur makin meningkat tapi amal tak kemana pun!

To my mates over there and here:
Rommel(USA),Daud mamak lu kat mana ni?,Jamal Oxford (merajuk with the living situation in Malaysia after serving well for the country),Azam Kuntek and Bababra in Zurich dah lah tu..kuntek,Boe,Jamil Balham,Zaini (aircraft designer),Apek Zul.Tajam,Ajim Warwick,Amok Super Tank,Man Cowboy (alah.. lu dah kaya cowboy lu lupa gua eh!!),Tadjri,Sheila London,Ramlah Sarawak,Kamik,Dollah Ce'Lagi,Tajul,Zak,Mus Guitar,Badak..

Hi Pak Tuo,

Wow..so that's you zaman muda eh? The rebellious years? Actually it is always a journey of self discovery isn't it? Ha ha.

It is nostalgic when we think of our days at school/uni. Wonderful times, baffling times, sad times..a real mixed feeling isn't it?

Anyway wishing you and family..EID MUBARAK.

Pak Tuo said...
