Mat Salleh and Sharif Osman's graves in Kota Marudu?

Friday, December 12, 2008
Really? I don't know for sure but I came across this article as I was browsing the internet just now. Mat Salleh in Kota Marudu? I've heard about Sharif but Mat Salleh? Hmm... Whatever it is, I hope they're right. Yalah, at least orang akan lebih kenal Kota Marudu, kalau betulla. Saya kan orang Kota Marudu and erm, Tampuruli jugalah... eh, dua2lah.... hehehehe...

Tracing Mat Salleh’s lineage with DNA
13th May, 2008

KOTA MARUDU: Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment Datuk Masidi Manjun has commended a Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) lecturer who is using DNA testing to identify descendants of the legendary 19th century resistance fighter Mat Salleh, saying the effort would contribute greatly to research into local history.

“We know that today’s technologies are already advanced, making it easier to compile a list of Mat Salleh’s descendants, and this will surely add to knowledge of the rich history of the people here,” he said, adding the legendary warrior “fought for Sabah.”

The half-Bajau half-Suluk rebel fought against the British North Borneo Company in the late 19th century, and it is learnt that several agencies are involved in locating his burial site, believed by some to be in Kampung Langkon Baru near here.

Masidi said he has asked the district council to identify the historical sites related to Mat Salle, adding he would approve funds for the district council to do restoration work on any historical site related to the warrior.

“When the restoration is completed it will not only be an important site but also another tourism attraction in the state,” he said.

A resident of Langkon Baru told New Sabah Times that the grave of Sharif Osman, another rebel who fought against the British colonial administration, is also believed to be located in the village.

"Sebenarnya, Time Saya Buat Tu, Saya Tiada Perasaan Langsung..."

Thursday, December 11, 2008
Sakit. Itulah yang saya fahami. Mengingatkan saya kepada zaman di mana saya juga mengalami kekecewaan yang sama. Perasaan yang sama. Kesakitan yang sama. Pada masa itu, saya merasakan dunia ini gelap. Tiada cahaya dan tiada keseronokkan. Semuanya adalah kelam dan mendung. Semuanya adalah kekeliruan dan kebodohan. Iya, saya faham perasaan itu. I understand it all...

Last Saturday, after not meeting for a few years now, kami kembali bertemu dengan rakan kami dari Sarawak. Mungkin sebab kami agak rapat, he told me everything that happened to him and the very reason why he was in KK. Okay, let me put this straight. Elparanza Grand Reunion will be held this coming Saturday (13th Dec 2008) and he couldn't make it. So, apart from the reason that he was here to support the reunion, he's actually trying to save the last inch of his relationship with his long-distance girlfriend which will be engaged to her other boyfriend, on the same date with his birthday - 17th of Dec 2008. I really feel sorry for him, personally, because I've been there and I know how it feels like to in his shoes. Memang perhubungan jarak jauh sangat susah untuk bertahan tapi dalam banyak kesusahan, ramai juga yang membuktikan bahawa ianya mampu bertahan. Dengan usaha untuk dekat kepada girlfriend dia, RM1600 terpaksa dia habiskan untuk keluar dari tempat kerja. Oh, I forgot to mention that he is a teacher and unfortunately, he was posted to a very rural school - 10 hours from Miri and RM1600 is the cost for a single back and forth transportaion!

I don't know every detail of it. True. But I also know that this is as much the truth that should be appreciated - the effort of calling her almost everyday using the only available communication there - public phone. The effort to, as much as he can, travel to KK to spend time with her. I know it is not fair for her that I interfere, but he's our friend and we will do anything to support him. We know him as a very warm-kind-hearted-down-to-earth kinda guy. Very good looking and very interesting person to be with. Kenapa orang baik selalu berhadapan dengan benda-benda yang buruk?

I'm putting my effort to write this because I want my readers to know that appreciating is a must. Learn to appreciate people around you. Apa lagi kalau orang itu adalah orang yang kita sayang. Memang kalau tiada jodoh, tiadalah bah kan tapi jangan buat orang itu rasa bodoh dan seperti tidak pernah berusaha.

To you 'girlfriend of him', I know this is not fair for you because I do believe that, both of you ada problem sendiri yang kami tidak tahu. Tapi, as a friend of him, kami mahu share yang kau telah terlepas seorang lelaki yang begitu baik dan begitu sempurna perinya atas nama manusia. We are far from hating you because we do appreciate you as his girlfriend before. Anyhow, congratulations on you engagement day. Have a blessed life with you fiance.

To you dear bro, life is like that. It's a process of maturity in every single point there is. I don't mean to make this harder for you, but please know that we are here for you. Will always do, always had been. Learn to be patience and learn to learn from it. Pull yourself together and trust that the world, although it seems not fair, but it is actually so fair that you will learn to smile towards it. Above all, trust God. He has a plan for you and He will never put burdens to your shoulder one that you cannot carry alone. Please remember that, the least you have is us and the most of it are your families and of course, the almighty.

As I am writing this, I tracing down the memory of being in the same situation. Although, I think I've gotten it under control, but honestly, it's in me and I am still adjusting myself. I know most of you will and actually can relate yourself into this situation. I am happy for what I am and for what I have now.

And as for the title, it's something that he said to me. It hurts so much that I bite my lips so that I can return to the real world. It is something that I will remember because you were so hurt and our friends felt it too. Most of it, I'm hurt but it's okay. After all, this is not about me...

As you are reading this bro... As you are reading this, please know that we are here and the very least you are going to have is me...

Battle Of The Cakes!

Tuesday, November 18, 2008
Okay, this is interesting. Last few weeks, almost the entire classes in my school held their Annual Farewell Party. Party like what we used to held before, remember? I know it's like a tradition and probably held throughout the country. It's a party in which students together with the teachers celebrate for the years of all the good times, funny times, hard times and stressful times - all times. Well, I know I had a very tough time with my class.

One thing that attracted me most is the cake they have in their class. Back in my days, nobody really cares who will cut the cake, what song to sing and what type of cake we will have. We were only interested in what we call as 'Battle of the Cakes'. Oh you know, the cake fight we used to have... Hahaha...

And this year maybe are one of the many years to come in which I again traced down the memory lane of the cake fight. Not that I took part in it but just watching the students made me feel the fun of it. Of course I didn't encourage them to have the 'fight'...

Why just 'ordinary' cake ah? It didn't take me long to realize why.
My class' cake. Very Simple yet very threatening, hahaha..
Durian cake from one of the class I went into. This is tasty...
Chocolate cake anyone? Very rich in chocolate, I must say.. Added KGs in my life!

Now is funny.. A Happy birthday cake in a farewell party? Or am I missing something here? Nope, didn't hear any birthday song being sung...

I don't think they'll have their cake fight here since the cakes were very inviting.. Or is it?

I remember this because this is the first photo of cake that I snapped that day. The first class we went into.. They're the SPM candidates.

After the first class, we divided ourself into groups and tried to go in every class just to pay respect to the students who put effort in holding the party. I was late to a few classes where I can only snapped ,specifically, a quater of this cake. I couldn't really went in all the classes but I where I can, I took the privilage to snap a photo or two.

You see people, hand marks! They're about to start the cake fight!!!

I also remember this cake because it was home-made by a student in her class. A bit ameature but it was good..

Together with my colleagues, we went in class after class. Ate as little as I can at first, then settled down finally in my own class. The only class which made an effort to prepare a choir for the teachers. I felt the vibe suddenly. Only then I realized that this will be the last time we can actually be in one place together. Be in one roof. And as any human being will be feeling about saying goodbye, indeed I feel sad and tears fell down my cheeks! Nah, no tears. Just made that up but the sad part, crystal!

I don't think it's a good idea for me to put the cake fight photos here. Just understand why okay. But I leave you people with the thoughts and memories of what it used to be like during our time. Not surprisingly, they're just like us!

Staff Meeting & Annual Dinner 2009 - Beringis Resort, Papar

Sunday, November 02, 2008
I am sure looking forward for this event. Okay, this is the 2nd time I'm here. First when I attended the BSS - EMS programme which last for a week last year. Reached about 1 p.m. and straightly prepare my presentation - Club and Society Strategic and Action Plan. Been busy with this presentation for the last few days. I should say it went well, although there were fews changes and improvement that I should take note of.

Maybe the highlight of the programme would be the annual dinner. The organizers picked 'flora and fauna' as the theme and I think everybody has done a good job to suit the theme. My best buds and I wore floral attires - secara kebetulan, the three of us semua pakai baju corak bunga raya ni - hahaha.. a very interesting coincidence, hahaha.

The only thing I regretted on this year's annual dinner and staff meeting was that the tentative was to pack and there's hardly time for us to browse the area. But it's all good..

My colleague's first born.. So cute..

Cyril, Ned, Red and Chong in the same table

Gambar kami juga bah...

See the baby? hehehehe.. Kiut kan...

Ni group yang serious2 ni... huhuhu

This is the line up of the administrators with their respective family members..

Ni pula meja kami.. Meja paling best.. hahaha

Orang-orang kuat semua ni tau..

My best buddies - Cyril left and Red right..
The annual dinner was indeed fun. Jokes, laughters, teasing here and there.. It was a memorable night for all of us. Tidak selalu kami dapat kumpul dalam situasi begini. It matters to know a little bit more of our colleagues and hope it will tighten things up every now and then.. Now, another year to wait before the next annual dinner...
