I have never known a friend who has so much zest for life at the university. As we poured over our books and studied hard...he was hanging out with friends to cheer the depressed and the lonely. But mind you he did graduate and reached the highest ranks in the corporate world. He was a great leader and a high achiever and he devoted his entire working life to serving Petronas to the best of his abilities.
I have not met amongst my friends who would bring all the old black and white photos he had (and enlarged) to One Utama (KL) Starbucks to show my children how great his school (Tanjong Lobang) was...and how much my children's father was a good friend to him since primary school. And he patiently and teasingly asked my children to identify their father ..in the class...and they were just little boys in Primary Five!!He was such a "good uncle" to them...They asked "He is a real CEO? an MD? He is like you know an enthusiastic prefect!!"....At the top of his career he still had that heart of a good neighbour...And he ordered cakes for me... He said...never mind..have the tiramisu..don't worry about your weight...I was never a loser in his eyes.
I have not met a guy who loved all his school mates more than himself and for as long as 50 years....in 2010.10.10 he was already a little ill..but he made it to the GREAT REUNION..but in a very unlikely event and against his wishes he had to be admitted to the MCMC in Miri...He had such a great sense of generosity that he would foot every bill if possible!! No one had to wash the dishes when he was around...he even asked the doctor if he could sneak out to attend the reunion dinner!!
to all my friends who will miss him...
These are the last photos I took of him...and his buddies..who were with him when he was discharged from MCMC.....
He loved all his friends...and all of us loved him.. WHAT A GUY11
May his soul rest in peace.
A Star has gone out from our universe....he will be missed.
May his family and loved ones be comforted by the great memories he left behind
On behalf of EX-Tanjong Google Forum world wide I would like to extend our condolences to his loved ones...every one who knows him will mourn for him and pray for him in our different ways.
