Meeting Uncle Cikgu Wan Hassan (My Father’s Teacher)

Yesterday, I met Uncle Cikgu Wan Hassan in Bangsar.

He is from Terengganu.

And he was my father‘s teacher in Sultan Sulaiman Secondary School (SSSS) in Kuala Terengganu.

He used to be my father’s scout teacher

Now he lives in Besut.

His wife, Aunty Cikgu Faridah Mohd Dagang also used to teach in SSSS (1981-1997).  

Now the school’s new name is Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Sultan Sulaiman. 

Anyway we didn’t visit his house, we visited his son’s house :mrgreen:

We ate rice with very tasty fried chicken, chicken percik, curry, ulam (Malaysian salad) and lots of other dishes.

My mother used to study in the school too, so my parents enjoyed talking to their old school teachers and their son. 

Anyway I didn’t enjoy so much being there because there was not much things to do and I do not understand what they were talking about 😉

A Moment With English At SMK Tengku Mahmud 2

Ali-SMKTgMahmudI went to Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Tengku Mahmud 2 for ‘A Moment With English’ program on Tuesday, June 16, 2009.

The school was a big secondary school in Besut, Terengganu.

I read the article about Swine Flu (but now it is called Influenza A H1N1) which I wrote when it first started in Mexico.

I met Kak Athirah and a lot of  other kakaks,  abangs  and teachers there.

I enjoyed ‘A Moment With English’ at the school.

I also enjoyed the ‘mee soup’ at the school.

It was tasty but very hot.

16062009(116)On the way back, I stopped at the Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium that collapsed a few weeks ago.

I also stopped at Pantai Bari.

In English Pantai Bari is Bari Beach.

I had keropok lekor, coconut drink and watched lots of goats drinking left over coconut drink from the coconut shells.

I love to go to Besut and I wish to go there again soon.
