Weekends usually prove to be schedule-tight as there are always some events to be attended or some activities to be done. Today, (Saturday, 20th December 2008; coincedently is the wedding date of Malaysian local heartthrob Mawi), I attended the USM Alumni Dinner – “Sirih Pulang Ke Gagang 2008” at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, KLCC. The invitation was courtesy of my Next-Next Cousin @ Godsis Sharifah Darweena who happens to be the Asst. Registrar; and since she asked me to ask a USM friend, I asked Naz to join.
The event was somewhat a nice remedy to reminisce the old days back in USM and is a nice event to ‘rub shoulders’ with new people. Among the Alumni members who attended were Ahmad Tarmimi Siregar, Yalal Chin (actors), Peggy Ng (TV broadcaster cum ex-actress) and Tan Sri Dato Idris Jala- CEO of Malaysian Airlines; who was later was awarded with the Grand Honorary – Anugerah Tokoh Alumni. He also serenaded the crowd with few blues songs. The event was solemnized by His Royal Highnessess King & Queen of Perlis. On whole, muchas gracias mi hermana / prima por el invitacion!~
