Reuniong Budok Teghanung Raya 2009

So the Eid-ul-Fitri Gathering for budok2 Teghanung did take place on 3rd Syawal, joined by Pyan and Badut (the adopted budok2 Teghanung since their other halfs are from Terengganu). Mattop (who was in Jabi, Besut at his wife’s kampong) could not join allegedly because of some permit issue from the Home Minister. Moto could only make it on 5th Syawal, so they were going to hold another one on 5th Syawal.

The plan was to hold it at Toje’s new satay restaurant, unfortunately we did not check first with him and he has dismissed all his staff until 4th Syawal – so we ended up at a very old place that remotely sounded as Montel Desa (rupa2nya it was Motel Desa); which we suspected could have been manned by volunteers from PEMADAM program (private jokes, jangan saman kami!).

Anyway, for the record, there were 6 original boys from Terengganu (original because we were born and bred and all our parents were born and bred here) and 1 co-opted (because Shahrin Jaminan was originally from Johor but his parents were working in Paka at the time of our registration in koleq).

Out of six, four were from Kuala Terengganu (Awie, Wong, Toje and Ja) whilst Zadin and I were from Kemaman. Zadin and I were the only Kemaman boys in between 1991 and 1993, until a Form 1 from Class of 98 registered in 1994. Before us, the only Kemaman boy was Nik Akid from Class of 90.

Anyway, Zadin and I drove separately and all of us met at A&W Batu Burok, before we adjourned to Montel Desa.

Lepas tu borak mesti berlarutan sampai kutuk2 orang dalam slange Teghanung, antara bahan kutukan Pyan dah elaborate dlm email he he:

“Kristy sebagai penyimpan mohor besar ruff, telah mengumumkan tarikh dan masa berkumpul adalah jatuh pada syawal 3, malang, restoreng toje. Sekiang harak maklong” - Pyan

“Salam, antara perkataan glamer masa gathering: congek, se same se, 660, cambodia,hairdryer, konek (ruff sebut dgn penuh jelas ketika waitress tgh amik order) bahang, bukak pintu, ayien dan fadli, gadap bomoh hantu, meterosexual, dan rough cuak nak drive kemamang takut hantu. Yg lain2 akan diceritakan oleh sdr rafizi sbb fon aku xde qwerty keyboard” - Pyan

“ada lagi...RON 93” – Ja

Explanation skit:

Congek – menggambarkan hobi kegemaran budok2 kaki hanyar di Teghanung i.e. congek motor.

Se same se – cabaran Menteri Besar Teghanung kepada YB PAS untuk gochoh se same se di luar dewang

660, Cambodia, hair dryer – buat kesekian kalinya kitorang kena dengor Wong citer dia gi Cambodia naik Kancil 660 dia, lepas tu enjin Kancil 660 kalu masuk air tak dok hal sebb buleh kerring paka hair dryer (aku dah nak tape letak kat Youtube so that Wong tak yah ulang citer ni)

Konek – he he mesti la pasal Gadap

Ayien & Fadli – kisah suka duka 2 orang penjual unit trust batch kita bila dibuli muka2 mcm Gadap

Metrosexual – he he citer Nik and jasa Zadin menyelamatkan Nik masa Nik telan boxing oil in 1991, flashback teknik2 bomoh hantu di koleq

RON 93 – mulanya citer the big difference pasal RON95 and RON97; lama2 ada orang bawak masuk citer RON93 la ha ha

dan lain-lain.

By the time nak habis, semua citer hantu dah mula keluar; dah le aku sorang je yang nak drive jauh-jauh balik Kemamang malang2 bute. Wong lagi la banyok nok ngossek, the deal was kalau ada apa2 aku akan telepong Pyan suruh dia baca Yasin ha ha.

Anyway it was one of the highlights of raya each year. We were the weird ones kat koleq – loud, cliquish more than any other groups and a variety of characters although there were only 6 of us. By Form 2 we all went separate ways though we still meet once a year at least to rehearse our spekong skill.

Moto spent the last few days of cuti raya in Terengganu on his wife’s side, so they went for another round – this time at Toje’s Sate Ori. I was not there but Moto sent me the photos – they were joined by Dany (Class of 90) whose kampong is nearby in Marang.


i) Blog still menunggu laporan-laporan raya dari negeri2 lain

ii) Antara accolades budok Teghanung Yengkoz94:

1) Raja Sukan – Zadin, Victor Ludrum 93 & 94

2) Raja Penyamun – ha ha sapa lagi kalu bukang Wong, dial ah antara pelopor curi line telepon bilik HM and bilik guru

3) Raja Fishball & DC – Ja, sebab sepanjang 5 tahun duduk kat koleq, tak de budak selain Ja kena DC sebab keluar awal masjid sebab nak bolot fishball

4) Raja Sungguh – Ha ha Awie la, sebab dia memang anak raja betul2 punya ha ha

5) Raja Songe – Toje, sebab bila dia mula membebel dia cakap dok buttir (kata orang Teghanung)

dan lain-lain he he.

Salam Aidilfitri 1430H

Dedicated to:

Those who have wandered and strayed from the batch for far too long – pulanglah as we do not get any younger and as we grow older, we require every support system we can summon;

Those who allow us to grow apart because increasingly we live a different life – pulanglah for the sake of those wonderful years of a life without judgment;

Those who are scattered around the world fulfilling the expectation that we bear to be the best – once in a while pulanglah as all of us eagerly await you for a few hours of laughter and catching up;

Those who have come across us as a batch and a group of people – we ask for forgiveness and may you tolerate our inadequacies and eccentricities as a batch; for we are one of the most dysfunctional batches ever to have come out of MCKK.

Selamat Hari Raya from Class of 94.

Sensasi Sahur Yengkoz 2009

For whatever reasons, the planning for this year’s Sahur was a bit late (it was all my fault that I alerted Epit a bit late) that by the time it was announced, the only date available fell into the last 10 days of Ramadhan. So inadvertently it whipped up some discussions on the properness of having a “Sensasi Sahur” (as Epit inaptly branded it ha ha) on such a date when we should be concentrating on ibadah to reap the reward of the last lap of Ramadhan.

(Discussions come and go; and usually there are people who would divert the attention and after a pause; events like this go unhindered anyway ha ha).

For the record, we have been having a Batch Sahur since 1995 i.e. the first year we left the school. I was not around until 2004 but the others went on religiously year after year, meeting at PJ Hilton until 2008 when we chose Concorde Hotel.

I was not privy as to why we opted for Sahur as an annual Ramadhan get together (as opposed to iftar at MCOBA Penthouse as practiced by other batches) but I can have a good guess. First; as an under achieving batch we shy away from MCOBA all the time ha ha. Secondly; the time after Iftar to sit down and chat is too short as everyone will be rushing for tarawih; hence why it’s a lot more convenient to sit down for Sahur.

And traditionally the hours for such an annual Sahur get together stretch from 11 pm to imsak (about 6 hours).

As we grow older, we shun the upper class establishment like hotels or expensive restaurants more and more. I was only interested at a place where we can sit down to laugh and chat and increasingly hotels are no longer a perfect place for that – especially for a motley crew of people with different backgrounds, dress codes, opinions and noise levels as us.

So we decided to downgrade to a mamak restaurant this year ha ha and we chose Pelita @ Section 15 in Subang Jaya, the place we gathered after the annual MCOBA Futsal tournament.

I had to pick Bobo at Mandarin Oriental so we planned to leave a bit late. I took a nap after tarawih and by the time I woke up it was about 11 pm. Waited for Bobo for almost half an hour late at Mandarin, I was really grumpy and was an inch close to abandoning him to a midnight cab ha ha.

It was a blessing in disguise because for hours I could blame Bobo for my lateness – I arrived around 1 am because there were at least 3 roadblocks around KL that night that jammed up the whole place.

All went well – we did exactly the same routine each time we have a get together i.e. a crash course on what has been happening on the emails for those who don’t regularly check their emails.

You see, our batch’s mailing list churns out on average 300 to 400 emails per day so sometimes some people will just give up. A few of them employed a different technique in order to prioritise their selection of which emails to read e.g.:

1) Ikram filters the emails containing his name so he reads these ones timely – but this doesn’t work too as there were times people play a prank on him by including his name in all unrelated emails so he ends up reading spam too;

2) Picca confessed that he only reads emails with attachment – which will not work too because Fadli’s emails are all about forwarded emails with large size attachments (and he has lots of them each day!)

…and so on ha ha. But usually, unless you are in front of your laptop each day, it’s very difficult to keep up with the emails. I have been missing out on what’s happening in the mailing list for the last of 2 weeks and the unread emails on my Blackberry have reached thousands ha ha (just to give an example).

Anyway – that’s why most reunions revolve around the mailing list and people just laugh about the most comical and impromptu emails that we exchange every day. The Sahur get together was no different.

By 3 am some people have started to leave. Our jaws nearly dropped when Toy, Chibix and the Winning 11 Gang (see Note 1) pulled out their gadgets and tried to connect to the TV. Apparently they had planned to play Winning 11 all along – fortunately (or unfortunately) the connection did not work out so we managed to stop it from becoming a precedent; otherwise all future Sahur will feature a Winning 11 competition!

Everyone left about 4 am and Aiwa, myself, Bobo, Sheppe and Fadli were the last ones to leave to witness Aiwa’s fourth Sahur for the night.

As always, Epit collected the money and as in any other get together in the past – we always make profits ha ha that contributes to the ever revolving “reunion fund” (see Note 2).

On this point; to the juniors who are reading this – there were a few people from junior batches who asked me before how we managed to keep up with our constant get together. It is understandable that as we grow older, it gets very difficult to organize anything; what with the different schedule and preferences – everyone thinks they know better and do not want to acknowledge the group who takes the initiatives to organize.

That’s why you need to identify a character like Hafiznizam Hashim @ Epit in your batch.

In our batch he is the equivalent of Penyimpan Mohor Besar Reunion who would announce and organize reunions, together with a group of other people. We do not question when he says it’s RM50 or RM30 – because that’s his job (although we always have a suspicion of the profit margin he and Mpro were making ha ha).

But the Penyimpan Mohor Besar Reunion of each batch must possess a unique set of qualifications. Our Epit has the following credentials:

1) Muka tak malu – he is not the type who would stop harassing you just because you did not pick up his call once. He will harass you until you give up and promise the Heaven and Earth to come. His time in koleq prepared him for this – when we were in Form 2; he was stripped nude right in front of the class by Kantoque in retaliation for the same act after a PE class. When your most prized asset had been shown to the world; there’s nothing that can embarrass you anymore.

2) Politician to the core – he is the type who gets along with everyone. His cube was the centre of any vice activities you can think of – from tempat bertenet, to where all the illegal things were hidden, to the smelly breeding ground of Madad’s guinea pigs during school hours etc. He says one thing to this betik; and says a different thing to that betik. With me he is the reform minded prefect; behind me I am sure he said I was crazy (nak hidup ha ha). You need this kind of character – only he can blend in and extort money from anyone in the batch regardless of the affiliation.

3) Civil servant at heart – Epit is the type whom once given an instruction or request; his usual reaction will be “consider it done”. I usually smile because I can imagine how in his daily life as a PTD officer; that must be a bread-and-butter act with the superiors ha ha. But the good thing is he usually delivers very well and you can consider it done (even if he over estimates the budget for fruits by 3 times; but at least the fruits were there ha ha).

4) Bini boleh kawtim punya – All of us were really lucky because throughout the years that we were doing this, Aily (Epit’s wife) has always been supportive and understood why we need to do this. Many times she would join in to organize and chipped in – without the Home Minister’s license, you can consider your Penyimpan Mohor Besar without the balls.

5) Trustworthy – whatever jokes we played on Epit (and we had many, including the title Bapak Betik since he was the only one interested with fellow batchmates back in 1994 when all of us were busy with juniors ha ha); Epit was the same trustworthy person I knew him since my third day in MCKK. He was sitting in front of me in 1 PK 1 and we had been in one form of alliance (holy or unholy) or another ever since that day until today because I trusted him with my life. So when we requested him to organize a reunion, I think he would not hesitate knowing that financially if there is a short fall, I and others will always top up.

I suggest those batches in MCKK began to scout for your own Penyimpan Mohor Besar Reunion from now on; so that you grow closer as you grow older.

Speaking of that, next year marks our 20th year rendezvous with MCKK. We registered as an MCKK student on 6th January 1990 and it has been 20 years since.

Some of us are already hatching suggestions and plans for another big reunion next year – the whereabouts, themes etc. will depend on the type of development we see in MCKK in the next few months.

But expect to hear more from our Penyimpan Mohor Besar Reunion ha ha J

Note 1: These are the hardcore W11 fans who congregate once in a while to battle out with each other at each other’s house; sometimes the points contributed to the batch inter-house competition. W11 was one of the events included in the 2008 Sukanterer in the run up to the athletic events at Padang Big School. I just don’t know why their wives tolerate this but they (the chubby husbands) may compensate the Peter Pan behaviour with good performance in bed – bersangka baik la ni kot.

Note 2: The reunion fund is the most unaccountable and unaudited fund in the batch; with the sole trusteeship in Epit’s hand. We never know how much it is in the fund – once in a while he would update us on the balance. That was why Aiwa made a joke that Epit could not wait to go back for the night to count how much money he made that night that can pay off his new hobby (whatever that is).

"Bahang" Sensasi Sahur


dear all,

dengan niat tidak mahu memecahkan tradisi yang dah kita pupuk bertahun-tahun, maka sahur tahun ini akan diadakan jugak. terima kasih kepada Tn Hj Bocap yg memang pandai bab2 bagi nama ni, kita akan namakan acara sahur tahunan kita pada kali ni sebagai SENSASI SAHUR 1430 HIJRIYAH.

walau bagaimanapun, untuk menunjukkan kita bukan katak bawah tempurung dan kita cukup sedar akan keadaan ekonomi global semasa, SENSASI SAHUR 1430 HIJRIYAH akan diadakan pada skala yang kecil sedikit. waima apa pun, kita akan pastikan kemeriahannya tidak akan kurang sekelumit pun.

makanya, saya dengan ini mengisytiharkan cadangan SENSASI SAHUR 1430 HIJRIYAH diadakan pada ketetapan berikut:




(nota: Restoran Pelita yang kita lunch lepas futsal tempoh hari).



selaku wakil penganjur, kami tidak akan menolak kalau ada yang nak buat sumbangan ketika itu. selain itu, kalau ada yg nak bawak kuih muih (kek lapis dan serunding contohnya), boleh la bawak ke majlis.

sesiapa yang nak sahkan kehadiran, boleh call 019 3388498 atau balas e-mel ini.

sebarang pertanyaan, komen, cadangan boleh dikemukakan juga di sini.

kalau ada aduan, korang boleh........ boleh blah....

sekian, terima kasih.

Epit (Bapak Betik MCKK)




Peristiwa ni berlaku semalam, tapi masih membengkekkan aku hingga saat ni.Kisahnya macam ni:

Dalam jam 11.30 malam, tetiba HP aku berdering.HP ni memang aku sengaja maximumkan bunyi sbb security kereta bersambung dgn HP dan sebagai bukti aku tak da skandal. Biasanya lelaki yg ada skandal ajer yg silentkan HP bila balik rumah almaklumlah ada penyakit takut b1n1.Jadi tanpa fikir panjang aku bergegas bgn dari katil ambil HP yang terletak agak jauh dari katil.Tertera nama Auzir kat HP ku membuatkan aku berfikir sejenak samada nak angkat atau tidak.Dalam kepala dah terbayang muka Auzir tgh mengharapkan aku angkat panggilannya.Dgn berat hati aku terpaksa gak angkat sebab bini dah bising2.

Aku.: a'kum, ya taik mu nak apa malam2 gini call aku?

Auzir: Mu buat menda tu??? Mu tgh 'bahang' ker??

Aku: 'bahang' taik mu! Mu nak menda?

Auzir: ye dah...memang mu tgh 'bahang' sbb suara mu lain macam.

Aku: 'bahang' taik mu!

Auzir: tak baik mu 'bahang' bulan posa...nanti kena kifarah mu..

Aku: kifarah taik mu.Kelakar gila mu call aku mlm2 gini..aku nak bgn
awal esok la taik.

Auzir: tak baik mu 'bahang'....bulan posa ni.

Aku: taik, mu nak menda...

Auzir: mu tgh 'bahang' ker?

Aku: mu nak menda taik, aku letak telefon kang?

Auzir: ada tak no tel Rifdi?

Aku: takdok la, aku lupa nak save no dia dulu.

Auzir: tu la mu, asyik 'bahang' jer kerja.

Aku: taikkkkkk

Auzir: No jures mu ada?Mu mesti ada sbb dia bedmate mu dulu..

Aku: aku tak reti nak tgk phone book sambil berckp, nanti aku sms ke mu..

Auzir: mu sms cepat sikit...jgn mu sms lepas mu 'bahang'...aku urgent ni.

Aku: ya la taik...dah la aku nak sahur ni...esok nak bgn awal taik..

Auzir: dah la 'bahang'..

Aku: taik mu...

Tetiba aku dpt idea utk kenakan org lain.

Aku: apa kata mu call org lain, aku rasa Wong tahu kot no Rifdi.Tak pun mu call Rough atau Epit. Derang ajk batch mesti ada simpan no tel ahli batch( bergeliga gak otak aku buat justifikasi masa mengantuk).

Auzir: malas aku kacau Wong tgh 'bahang' karang ni marah aku.Kacau mu takpe.

Aku: taik mu.Mu call la Rough & epit...(Masih berusaha)..

Auzir:tgk la camner nanti.Mu lepas ni nak sambungg bahang lagi...?

Aku: taik mu...

Auzir: tak baik mu 'bahang' bulan posa..

Aku: taik mu...dah la auzir aku nak tidur, sat lagi aku sms no Jures...kelakor gila mu ni call aku mlm2 nak minta no tel...taikkk mu.

Auzir: hehehe saja nak kacau mu 'bahang'..

Aku: taik mu...wassalam.

Pelik sungguh makhluk bernama Auzir. Begitulah pengalaman hidup aku semalam. Korang sangka kat Malaysia ni hanya Chin Peng atau Kim Jong Il atau Saddam Husssin yg kuram asam, rupanya ada lagi org kurang asam. Oleh itu silalah off HP anda bila malam menjelma.

GADAP (Bapak Konek)


Just a typical day in a dysfunctional batch - scanning through the hundreds of emails sent daily to the Male-ing List.

Jangan lupa tambahkan ucapan Warta, kita nak meet 400 at least this year!
