26th JUNE 2017 ~ Friends started arriving on the second day of Eid for the annual house visits. The first one knocking on my door in the morning were Puan Farah Sabina Safiai and her family members who residing in Seremban. A friend of UPM TESL class of 1993, she is a regular visitor as her in-law's house is just a stone's throw away from my place.
The next group of regular people I see during Eid were the family members of Puan Hayati Ismail, another friend of UPM TESL class of 1993. I have been seeing the kids grow up year after year.
The next unexpected guests were Mr. Aslan Muzafar, his wife and daughter. An ex-student of SMK Taman Universiti from SPM batch 2003, he came visiting for the very first time. The last time we saw each other should be like 14 years ago.
Another unexpected guests were Puan Rozainah Abdul Latif and family, also from my UPM TESL class of 1993. She is currently staying in Melaka but the in-law's place is just at the neighbouring "kampung" (a village-like residential area).
This is just the beginning. I am hoping to meet more people later, some once in a year kind of gathering. 27 more days to go...
