Just another day in Malacca....

Over the weekend we went to stay at our condo in Malacca and enjoy that sunset again for the two evening we were there. Every evening it was a different scene, yet the same sun doing it disappearing act as usual. A ritual that had been going on since the earth was formed eons of years ago. I love to watch the setting sun and as usual got some snaps of the setting sun on that day. In a way to immortalized the evening scene of January 11, 2008.

We had lunch with a friend whom we had known from the year 1969 when I was working in Malacca then. She is now a blogger as well. During my days in Malacca, she a teacher would volunteer her free time to help us in some cultural programmes for the youth. It was nice meeting her again and now we talk about the joy of blogging. Like me she has retired but continue to contributes her spare time to help folks in their recreational activities. She say that teaching has always been her passion and would continue to be a teacher in one way or the other. Thus she enjoyed doing the same but to a different group of people, that of those in their golden age like her. It was real nice meeting her again. The last time we met was some eleven years ago in another circumstance. A meeting of this friend after a lapse of times do trigger great memories of our youth, especially so in that enchanting city. The historical city of Malacca. Well, that is life and it is the friendship of such people that made our lives so colorful.

Friends, I did not get the mean of broadband at our condo, so it was hard to surfed the net. Well, life is like that sometime. A little changes here and there plus a little happening with an old friend do made our lives more interesting and beautiful. Have a nice day.

There are few pleasures as keen as meeting a friend or acquaintance after many years. As your friend mentioned, the years just fall away when you begin chatting again.

Pak Idrus,

You are one hellavu guy with great friendships.

louis, thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts of the true meaning of friendship. I have always treasured friendship.

True when you chat with friend especially that you have not met for such a long time, times never seem to be with us. It just walked away just like that.

Well, that is our world. Einstein was right that time is relative. Have a nice day.

hi&lo, thanks for the visit and the kind words on this posting especially so on my kind of friendships.

To me friendships should be forever and I always treasured true friendships. In the real world other then relatives, friends do play a part as sort of an extended family, that would be there with you come rain or shine. That is one reason that I believe that strangers are friend that you have yet to meet. Like you, louis and the other cyberpal, I considered as friends already. In due course when we meet in the real world it is just completing that relationship as friends.

It would be a dull world indeed if we were without friends. Have a nice day.

Salam Pak Idrus,
I've been missing your blog this past week or so. Actually I went back to Malaya on 3rd til yesterday, 13th. However, I didn't have time for the usual visits, etc. since I was attending to my father who went through an operation and was hospitalized at Ampang Putri for a week. Guess what? When I got back here in Dhahran yesterday it rained for whole day and yes, we have flash floods and the city was congested for hours like KL (they don't have longkang & parit here)... looks more like KL than Saudi Arabia! And the kids missed school! Anyway, its good to visit your blog again... and the song Semalam Di Malaya... salam & take care.
