Wow, a post dedicated to me?

I am deeply honoured, Bro Zawi (from Life as I See It), though I am not sure if I am worthy of such a dedication.

I have followed Life as I See it for quite sometimes now. Most of the time I was a lurker, reading the entries, but not saying much, if at all. I do enjoy the stories, many of which are something I can relate to. In many ways, I thought our blogs have many similarities.

What makes his blog more interesting is the stories about Kelantan, a state I spent five years growing up in, and I am quite fond of the five years I was there.

It was only recently that I started to leave comments at his blog. Like the saying goes, a smile would aways elicit a similar response.

And here I am staring in disbelief that I now have an entry dedicated to me (even if the honour was shared with another).

If I may paste an excerpt from that entry, just for the record.

"First and foremost I would like to dedicate this post to Shahrir of Cakapaje who had lived in Pengkalan Chepa with his family and Rahman Hariri of Time In A Bottle for their being a former student of Maktab Sains Mara Kota Bharu (MRSM) putting him in the same league as Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir, the son of the former Prime Minister of Malaysia. Datuk Mukhriz is the man responsible for the setting up of ANSARA an association of ex students of MRSM Malaysia."

Thank you Bro Zawi for the wonderful entry, the wonderful pictures for me to jog down memory lane and the wonderful blog - it goes without saying.

But I would have to say it anyway and I have said it!


  1. Dear Rahman,
    Though we don't know each other much, your interest on Pengkalan Chepa especially your alma mater MRSM Kota Bharu prompted me to dedicate it to you. Hopefully that will beckon you to come back to Kelantan more often and make it your second homestate.

  2. Thank you sir. It is far fetched at this moment, but in the future who knows. One can never discount it. Thanks again.
