BTW Sychronicity is Tawafuq in Islam. 

The happening was yesterday 5.2.2022. I met a person that  I had not met since fifteen years ago.
On WhatsApp later I wrote this to her.
"Amazing indeed that today January 5, 2022 we meet again after fifteen years. It was on November 8, 2007 that we met at the Coffee club at Kinokuniya, KLCC. That scene is still vivid in my mind; two strangers, one a young students of journalism from a local University and me a retired government officer from the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports, then a Blogger. I blog here on that meeting on .. The meeting on 8.11.2007 In this meeting she was gathering information on the role of blog in the new media, for her study on journalism. I tried to help her with whatever knowledge I have on the role of Blogger in this new era of information sharing. 
By the grace of God today's meeting of just a few minutes became an important dot in both the life of this gorgeous woman whose name is Grace, a mother of two and me now a great-grandfather. Incidentally She is now a senior officer in the now Ministry of Youth and Sports.  Imagine we have not met for fifteen years. Only in touch from time to time in the social media. Today's meeting cannot be just a coincidence. To me it must be synchronicity. Alhamdulillah. 

Have a nice day.

Twinkle Villa Janda Baik...

A few months ago, I surfed the net trying to find an outback resort in the jungle of Janda Baik, an enclave of the east side of the main range of Malaya, for a short retreat with the family. In Malay the main range is call the Banjaran Titiwangsa. Most of the forest in the main range of Malaya are some 160 million years old since it was not touch by the ice age. In the search I stumble upon the Twinkle Villa and decided to explore more from the resort website. It looks interesting with a concept of a private villa where the guests are limited in numbers. Since this is something new I then told my daughter Lin to check and maybe one of these days we could just go there. She did her homework and then make a booking to get the whole family there on the weekend that she is free. As usual with a three-generation family it difficult to get everyone along in one go. In the end she books a villa that could accommodate six and was allotted the Villa Resak. All the villas are names after the

The Cicit (great grandchildren's)

This is my first blog posting since the new year of 2021 and today is already the 21st day of the new year. See how time fly. Let me me starts by saying Alhamdulillah for the family.. the Idrus Clan move forward with an addition to the family. On 7.1.2021 our second great grandchildren was born, a baby girl to our second granddaughter. With that now we have two Cicit (great granddaughter) We became  Moyang (Great grandparents) on the  21. 6. 2018 when we were blessed with the first Cicit from our eldest cucu (granddaughter) The first cicit is named Ayra and the new arrival is Nadaa. Folks of my generation would never dream in seeing such names but our grandchildren knew what they are doing by giving their babies meaningful and beautiful names. Coincidentally their Nenek, our eldest daughter retired on 5.1.2021 after 30 years of service at UKM. And it looks like a good timing for she would have a great time in helping to nurture these babies in their early years of developme

Of Fig Planting in Malaysia...

I have always love to eat cake or biscuits that contain figs and never thought that fig tree could be planted in this country. Of course we have the local fig trees but it just grow wild and most of the time folks in this country never use it for food. But recently when I join a closed group on Facebook that call Malaysia Gardeners I notice that many friends talk and exchange ideas and information on Fig and growing it in their garden. Some kept exchanging variates and give it among friends. On one posting in the group a friend post a box of cutting that he got from a friend from another part of the country and that he has indeed start planting the plants with some success. I post a comment on the posting and jokingly say that I would love to have some cutting. He reply on my personal message that he could send me some if I give him my address. Without much ado I let him have my address and today, this morning I received a small package from the postman.  Delighted with the cutti
