An ANSARA member meeting the ANSARAwan and a second day of 'leave'

I started rather early today. I was at the hospital by 7.30am. Abah was reading the morning papers, right after breakfast.
Left: Abah reading the morning papers
I need to check on my old man before going down to credit control when the office is open for business, at 8.30am. There is a new bill needed to be settled and also, clarified. My niece, Alia was already in the suite, although she was still in her 'jim-jams'.

Then, off to Putrajaya International Convention Centre. I am attending the Anugerah Belia Felda Malaysia. I was seated with a few YBs and YB Senator Tan Sri Dato' Jins Shamsuddin.
Right: Being seated next to a veteran movie maker
We chatted about the current issues, especially with a lot of marchers and street demonstrations, almost weekly now. It is clear they are not happy and satisfied how things have been handled.

When I arrived, the Minister of Innovative, Science and Technology YB Dato' Dr. Jamaluddin Jarjis and Angkasawan Negara Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor, who is also the ANSARAwan were seated on stage and in a forum, with the 3,000 odd youths representing the various FELDA schemes from all corners of the nation. It was a very good motivation for these youths to interact with him.
Left: With Angkasawan Negara aka ANSARAwan
Next to our table, was the VVIP table. As soon as their session is over, Dr. Sheikh went to seat at the VVIP table. Being an Ex-Muo, I immediately connected with him. I talked about how my daughter Aishah has her own blog and she blogged about his journey to space. He cordially gave my daughter an autograph.
Right: The Angkasawan Negara writting a note to Aishah
It was very sweet of him.

The moment lunch is served and Mawi started singing, I excused myself and hurried back to the hospital. But not before I sounded out to Dr. Sheikh that ANSARA Deputy President Roslan Bani Amin (representing Dato' Mukhriz Mahathir), Secretary General Ahmad Bazlan Che Kasim and ANSARA Muo Chapter Head Sallehuddin Hj. Ahmad Khalid was in the crowd, few tables behind us. Salahuddin Hj. Hisham was with them too. He instantly went up to look for these guys.
Left: The note
When I rushed back to the hospital, I called in and Tan Sri Mr. Yahya had not done his ward rounds yet. The moment I got there, I showed Girl-Girl the 'surprise'. The was thrilled and flabbergasted, in mixed emotions!

I'd be too, when I was eleven and my father suddenly came back with an autograph for Mokhtar "Super Mokh" Dahari (He was the hero of every nine, ten, eleven and twelve year olds boys, then!). Unfortunately, my father did not get the opportunity to be acquainted with the great footballer. In fact, all his friends then are either civil servants or politicians. So no autograph from a national hero for me, in the seventies.
Right: Calling Chu and telling her the 'surprise'. She can't call Mama as Mama was in a class
Then at 2.30pm, the eminent cardiothoracic surgeon Tan Sri Mr. Yahya Awang eventually arrived for his ward visits. He looked at the wound and happy that it has much improved. He would want Abah to stay on this tomorrow evening. To make Abah happy and his moral boosted further, Tan Sri Mr. Yahya allowed him to have another couple of hours 'leave'.
Left: The unmistakable happy face with the 'surprise'

So Abah left the hospital again, for a short while in two days and supposed to comeback by 6.30 pm.

The first thing he did, when he arrived home was to look at his Koi pond.
Right: Closely looking at the plants within the water feature
Then everything else was okay for him.

Another good neighbour, Toi See Yan, dropped in with his wife later in the evening. Toi, a Chartered Accountant and former Company Secretary of Abah's company is the elder brother of renowned Malaysian designer in New York, Zang Toi.
Right: They shared their experience in Dubai recently with Abah whilst having his dinner
