hhmm...there have been familiar voices enveloping us recently...since Friday 2 b exact. Specifically...these r d Nottingham sounds that have been with us for more than 3 years few moons ago. Well, actually d Notts gang had a reunion of sort since 2 days ago n it was held in Parit Raja in Johor. N u ask...why King's Drain? Lets just say that our members, Baha n Awin, r running a hotel there, named D'Impian Inn, n it simply is a great opportunity for us to get together. BTW...d above is d back of Basri's ride...pity that we didn't get to cekau one of these BBC Notts stickers while we were in d other side of d pond.
d 'reunion' 'officially' starts on Saturday, but a few families turned up earlier just to savour d experience longer. We ourselves were supposed to travel south on Saturday...but early Friday morning we received calls 'encouraging' us to be there pronto. N since Friday was a holiday for Awal Muharram, we decided to jump onto d bandwagon n steered ourselves southward. Turned out that we were d 1st family to arrive n received by d ever-smiling Baha. But we were joined later by Yahya/Fauziah, Adnan/Azah, Rashid/Dila, Fifi/Nasiroh, Malik/Salwani n their respective families as well as Iko/Izan among others. N here we r enjoying a cuppa or 2 @ D'Impian Kopitiam on Friday...located right across from D'Impian Inn.
Later that nite d guys went out for a round of Asam Pedas...n it turned out to be a journey of about 80 km of jalan kampung each way. We went in 2 cars n with me commandeering Adnan's Odyssey. I'll say that d Odyssey was quite comfy to drive n responsive too. N ohh...d Asam Pedas dishes were nice...considering that we were there wayyy past midnite.
Saturday...in line with d tradition in Notts...we had a round of badminton in d afternoon. But since most of us r quite rusty...we managed only a few sets while d rest just borak2 je
in d evening we held our 'meeting'...with everyone putting on their NMC Alumni apparels. N if u may have noticed...even d table skirting r orange in color
n after 'deliberations n a transparent' voting process...these r d line-up of d NMC Alumni committee with Baha as d pengerusi
n followed by group foto op of course...
Sunday n final day...in d morning d kids had a gala time taking part in various games
we checked-out in d afternoon but d journey was far from complete. On d way back, most of d gang stopped by @ Baha/Awin's place for another round of 'meaningful communication' with BBQ on d side. Nasib baik d compound was huge...to accommodate d many 'student AP' German-marque rides...
All in all it was a great outing...thanks to everyone who have made it possible...especially to our host n hostess...n families who travelled all d way from Kedah. BTW, my camera 'kong-ed' while there...so...some of d images above were courtesy of Iko n NizamJohn...thanx guys.
