HAMID Father.

About ten years ago I had aneurysm. Spent a few days in intensive care and took about a year to recover. These last few months I have been having recurring headaches lasting for a few days at a time and spell of dizziness and I felt that it was time to get an educated opinion on my medical condition. This I did with a visit to my doctor. To cut a long story short I will have the first of many tests this week to allow my Doctor to have the information he would need to make an informed decision as to what is to be done to me...either put me in the "too hard to cure basket" or start me on medication to start me down the road to managing what health problems I have. I have an aversion to Doctors but at my age, cannot play play lah!

But here is the better part of the day....when I powered on my PC I got a pleasant message from Andrew Ee…he knew my late Father…and he sent me photos of my father on Widuri – my Father’s beloved boat. Looking at my Father in the prime of his life on his boat brought back so many happy thoughts and memories of this Father of mine…and I wanted to share these images with those of you who might have known him too. Thank you again Andrew for your kindness in posting those images to me.     

For those of you who still have your Father with you - please I ask that you take five and try to reach out to them and let them know your affections, respect and reverence for them...and your mother too! What I have now of my parents are just memories...but what wonderful memories! And Andrew thank you for making me go back to the past to revisit those memories.  


  1. Stay well and safe brother. Yes, I began to think of my late Pa too. He held 3 jobs to give three of us the best he could afford.

  2. Dear HH,

    I'll pray that your medical this week goes well and your headaches is nothing serious. God bless and stay well.

  3. Semoga TUHAN memberi Pak Hussein kesehatan hingga ke akhir hayat,,

  4. Uncle Hussein, praying that things go well with regards to your upcoming medical and health matters. By the way, you have a lovely family and look just like your old man. Take that last bit as a compliment. :D


  5. I know your brother Rahman. I told him about your blog but he was not impressed. Is it true that you were disowned by your family because of some financial dealings went sour? Sorry to bring this up but that is what Rahman told me. Anyway, take care.

  6. To all my friends that wish me well...thank you so very much.

    As for my brother Rahman...he knows what he did and I know what I did.....and that is all that matters for me. and my father should have spent some time fishing together...he will be impressed with that Udanag Galah catch!

  7. Do take care and go for reqular check-up. Hope it will be good news for you.


  8. Sir,

    Good to see your post.

    When my dad was alive, It was a weekly routine asking myself what I can do for my parents.

    They were old and time was not on their side. Taking things for granted is not my style.

    I am glad I did because after they departed from this world, I have no regrets over things I should have done.

    Mum & dad, I miss you all forever.

  9. Suci dlm debu...agree with you. I do that to those that I love now everyday. You never know when you will be parted from them...when I go I will have no regrets.
