Tomorrow : 12:00-3:00p.m we would be having our farewell lunch at the Lake Club Kuala Lumpur.
Barely two months from our last great gathering (18.04.09) when Sham came home for her month long holiday from Oman, which brought joy and laughter to SK'72... (she then left Malaysia on the 30th April, to continue working for another few more years) .... and now it's Yati Takiman's turn to leave us.... sob, sob, sob.
She finally made her decision to work in Ta'if.
Ta’if (الطائف aṭ-Ṭā’if) is a city in the Mecca Province of Saudi Arabia at an elevation of 1,700 m (5,600 ft) on the slopes of the Sarawat Mountains (Al-Sarawat Mountains). It has a population of 521,273 (2004 census). Each summer the Saudi Government moves from the heat of Riyadh to Ta'if. The city is the center of an agricultural area known for its grapes and honey.
We shall have lunch in a room fit for "25 loud voices ladies"... we still call ourselves ladies (self respect), mind you! Gatherings are always full of joys even though we never shared same classrooms while in school but friendships developed and lasts until today and until the end... forever and ever
Maisarah Mahmud was kind enough to use her club membership and to host our lunch. Thanks to her for this gesture.
I saw a long list of the "girls" (to make us feel young) who could attend, another list is for those who wouldn't be able to make it and another is for those who sent farewell messages... I hope I am right with these listings.
