“One day I will read again this blog and will wonder how it feels to walk in the dark in extreme cold temperature. Maybe it is just a perfect way Deutschland says good bye to me.” Hafzan Lazim, January 26, 2010 8:53 pm

Tuailah padi antara masak
Esok jangan layu-layuan
Intailah kami antara nampak
Esok jangan rindu-rinduan

Anak cina pasang lukah
Lukah dipasang di Tanjung Jati
Di dalam hati tidak ku lupa
Sebagai rambut bersimpul mati

Batang selasih permainan budak
Daun sehelai dimakan kuda
Bercerai kasih bertalak tidak
Seribu tahun kembali juga

Burung merpati terbang seribu
Hinggap seekor di tengah laman
Hendak mati di hujung kuku
Hendak berkubur di tapak tangan

Kalau tuan mudik ke hulu
Carikan saya bunga kemboja
Kalau tuan mati dahulu
Nantikan saya di pintu syurga

Hafzan Lazim

Year end soul

The last few weeks before holiday break is really awesome. Loads of work comes up one after another. There are still plenty unsettle tasks on my desk. It is being done according to the priority. At the end, I am the one who gets confused with the order from the most important to the least ones.

They come from the smallest bits to the largest event, from being a reader to being even a PM. With the announcement that the school is in the list for the New Deal, SBT and Cluster School, things are getting more complicated (or maybe I am the only person who are not well organised? huhuhu)

Before the short break at the end of the year, lets take 5. Lets take a shorter break. Take a deep breath in.. and out.. If possible put the names of Allah in each of the breath in and out.. Imagine something peaceful and then think nothing, only the name of Allah fills your heart. huhuhu

When we are at the right place at the right age, at the right moment, we can take the real break as the call from God. We should better prepare enough pack lunches for the stock as “This world is the farming field of Life hereafter”.

Even the imitation Hang Tuah takes a break. huhuhu

Perdana Pusaka Gayong Johor 2011

Last weekend, PSSPGM Johor had organised quite a grand event. It was a three days course including the grading. The mandi tapak and seni ceremony were also held during the course. It was held at SMK Sri Saujana, Kota Tinggi. The trainees came from all over Johor mainly from Kota Tinggi and Johor Baharu. A number of trainees from Selangor also participated in the course.

All the instructors were specially imported from Pusaka Gayong Selangor under the supervision of Cikgu Md Rasip. There were about 20 of them. Therefore the teaching and learning session were quite efficient as the ratio of the trainer and trainee was just 1:10. huhuhu

The grading also went well as the participants had enough time to do the revision as well as to cover the syllabus. Thanks to the professional instructor for the skills and knowledge shared. As the organiser, a few of us did not have much time to learn and revise the syllabus. We need to make sure that the schedule run in a flow. However by looking at the impact of the program, we can comfortable watch at ease. The ‘bersilat’ part can come later. huhuhu

Lesson was held in small groups

The closing ceremony was held at the hall nearby. It was indeed a formal ceremony as the VIP was Dato’ Halimah  Mohd Sadiqeu. Among the part that amazes me was that the costume worn by the instructors was at the other higher level. They wore the Malay Suit (baju lepas or songket) which usually only been worn by the bridegroom during the wedding ceremony. It seems that I need to slowly upgrade my costume as well. How do the Kelantanese Malay suit looks like?

Congratulation to PSSPGM Saujana, Air Tawar, Gelang Patah and Johor at large. Congratulation to all the new belt holder. Remember that the new colour of the belt comes with responsible.  Remembering and mastering the syllabus is one part and sharing them with others is other part. Consistent in the path is also another part.

Thanks a lot to all the donors in term of knowledge, money, materials, strength and time.  Beside that, extra credit need to be given to KRT Seri Saujana Zon 6 for helping us especially in the closing ceremony. The collaboration that was made with the group has lessen the workload that we had.

Thanks to all, insyaallah we’ll meet again soon

A Short Visit

After going for a school trip to Langkawi Island, I sketched my own trip astray from the origional plan. Instead of going back to Kota Tinggi. I went to Kg Sungai Ara which is located in Pantai Besar, Batu Kurau. The aim was none other than to visit my grandmaster, Pak Ngah Izahar. It has been very long since the last visit, last year. huhuhu

The village atmosphere, deep on the high place near Taman Negara reserve is always refreshing. I had fun time chatting with Pak Ngah and my fellow Gayong brothers, getting the updates that I have missed.

Pak Ngah is rearing the rare species, Red Junglefowl

With the new signboard.. huhuhu

Can’t wait to make another visit to Pak Ngah’s, this December perhaps. huhuhu
