A Day in Melaka (Malacca)

Yesterday I went to Melaka to visit Uncle Khairul Najmi’s mother.

Her name is Opah Asmah Idris.

Uncle Najmi is my father’s good friend.

She had a heart attack on Sunday.

She is now in the CCU ward of Hospital Melaka.

I met Atuk Idris and Aunty Aini at the hospital.

(but we forgot to take photo at the hospital)

After that we had lunch at ‘Lot 85’ with my father’s friends.

Their names are Aunty Jennifer Lim, Uncle Lee Chong Seong, Uncle Yong Chin Fook, Uncle David Wang and Uncle Ridwan Aziz.


They are Sulaimanians – they used to study at Sultan Sulaiman Secondary School (SSSS) in Kuala Terengganu. (The school blog – Click)

Now they live in Melaka.

I eat tasty nasi ayam (chicken rice) and drink a nice, cold lime juice.

We stop at Masjid Al-Azim for zohor.


On the way home, I saw a forest fire by the highway.

Forest fire is a disaster.

The forest fire reminds me of Micheal Jackson’s ‘Earth Song’.

I am sad because I was asleep in the car when Auntie Yaman called from Sudan.

I enjoyed the trip and hope to go to Melaka again.
