Pulau Pohon Batu Labuan went to Damansara yesterday. The painting of Pulau Phon Batu Labuan was inspired by the sight of th small rocky Island off the shore of Pulau Labuan Wilayah Persekutuan almost opposite The Peace Park. The painting was given as a memento to my ex teacher Cikgu Rahman Ali who has since retired. He had been teaching in Pasir Mas immediately after graduation in the late sixties and later became the Headmaster of the school, later of MCKK and finally end up as one of the directors in the Minsitry of Education.
Cikgu Rahman Ali came to Kota Bharu after being invited to attend a dinner hosted by the former sixth formers of Sultan Ibrahim Secondary School in Pasir Mas on 26th September 2009 at The Royal Kelantan Club in Kota Bharu.
Yesterday he was on his way back to Damansara KL via train. Pak Zawi with wife Fatthiyah and a few friends went to the railway station in Pasir Mas to send him off. Here we were including another ex teacher Puan Hasnah Sulaiman and her husband Tuan Syed Halim Jamalulail having a group photograph together.
Now Pak Zawi's painting Pulau Pohon Batu Labuan has found a new home to grace in Damansara KL. The painting will represent Pak Zawi's gratitude to a well respected teacher who had a hand in shaping Pak Zawi's life. To Cikgu Rahman Ali, it is always to Sir with love.
