Puan Faridah Wazir, an ex-colleague of SMK Taman Universiti, held a wedding reception for her daughter, held at her house in Taman Desa Skudai. That was really kind of her to still remember to invite me to the event.

As usual, there were many ex-colleagues/friends who were there to attend the event as well as a few ex-students.

Too bad I could not stay too long as I was expecting a few guests coming for Eid visit. I hope there will be more events where I could meet with friends and ex-students in events like this in the future.

THE 14th DAY OF EID 1439H

Eid was celebrated in SMK Dato' Jaafar today. We had some sort of "open house" where each class (led by the form teacher) held a feast for the teachers, members of the class and the non-academic staff as well.

Basically what I had to do was to walk around and visit a few classes assigned to me - only nine (out of the total number of 32). I was already full by the time I was in class number 3.

People were happy in all the classes I went to, especially when they were surrounded by delicious food. This definitely was a good session for both the teachers and students, not only the got to celebrate Eid together, but also to strengthen the rapport between respective parties. I was too busy eating so I did not take many photos.

Food always unite people. And I am getting fatter by the day.

THE 12th DAY OF EID 1439H

Two groups of ex-students of SMKTUN SPM batch 2006 were in the house on the 12th day of Eid. The first group arrived at 8:00 p.m. and the girls even brought dinner for everybody. 

The three girls were Eid regular visitors and as for Mr. Voon Yee Yung, this was his first time ever. Guess I had to thank Ms. Khaulah for the effort to get the gentleman to tag along.

Then, by 9:45 p.m., another group of the same batch and just one from SPM batch 2012 arrived. 

The girls had to leave after the photo session but Mr. Voon stayed on to chat longer with his ex-classmates.

By 11:00 p.m. it was time to bid these people "goodbye" and hopefully, I would be able to see them again next year.

THE 9th DAY OF EID 1439H

Today I went visiting for the second time for this year's Eid. I was invited to an Open House by Tuan Haji Abd. Rahman Ngah and Ustazah Raja Ainurraziyah Raja Omar at their home in Taman Nusa Idaman. This was just the right time to go out as there were two wedding receptions to attend right after.

I managed two see two of their kids (out of four)  who are my ex-students of SMK Taman Universiti - Nurul Izyana (SPM 2019) and Izzuddin (SPM 2012) .

an ex-colleague of SMKTUN

Another ex-student, who happened to be
the neighbour, Mr. Azfar (SPM2010)
I was happy as I got my traditional Malay dishes, finally after 9 days of Eid - "Burasak" and "Laksa Johor". I should have taken the photos of the food, but it was already too late once I realized about it.

THE 8th DAY OF EID 1439H

Today should be the start of the second week of Eid celebration and the visiting routine must go on. A group of ex-students from SMKTUN SPM batch 2012 were here, accompanied by a mother of one of the girls who happened to be an ex-colleague, Puan Yusidah Yusof.

With the loud and continuous chattering and laughter throughout, it was just like yesterday once more.

The last visitors of the day was Mr. Huzaifah Abd. Rahim [SMKTUN alumni SPM batch 2009] with his wife. He used to come with his classmates before this but then time sure has changed, and by next year, there will be one more new member of the group.

NOTE TO SELF: One more day before school reopens. Where is my plastic bag containing the students' exam paper?
