Today is indeed a very sad day for me. I have received an email from my friend back home this morning says that one of our friends has just passed away yesterday. It comes as a shocked to everyone as he was a healthy and athletic person without any major health concerns. In fact, he passed away while jogging in the sport complex. He was still young, maybe in his late 40’s or early 50’s.
He was a family man, a great friend and a great teacher. I'm blessed to have known him and have been his colleague for ten years. I have great respect for him. He was like a big brother to me. While I was still singled, he was the friend I came to when I need any advice (work related or personal) from a man point of views. He had never been biased or prejudiced when giving his opinions or advice and whatever you share with him will safe with him. What a great person he was.
He will be certainly missed by his beloved family, friends, his students and everyone who knows him. My heart and prayers go to his family. May God blessed and give strength to his wife and family. May you rest in peace, cikgu Bahrin.
