Just before Raya, Cikgu Nazir made an entry about his high school friends, and how several have passed away while another cannot be traced. I found the entry touching as I think many of us can relate to the story. In wanting to assist Cikgu trace the friend, I made an entry of my own and hoped it would be passed along the line of bloggers - friends and strangers alike. But both - Cikgu and my entry - were made at a time when most people were busy with Raya or could not go online.
Though I have very few readers compared to Cikgu or other bloggers, I hope this entry would be able to assist Cikgu in his search of his friend as in the text below. I know I ought to edit it, but I'm just not the kind of person to do so.
To all my blogging friends and visitors, could you kindly copy and paste the below, or even write in your own words to help Cikgu in his search of a long lost friend? It would not cost you anything at all, just a few minutes of your time. But your kind effort may assist to rekindle a frienship. Just think of it as another episode in 'Jejak Kasih'. Thanking you, in advance.
Calling JACHFRINS - On Behalf of Cikgu.
Some people say that friendship is like a commodity which can be bought or sold. Perhaps to them it is as their friendship too can be bought and sold. But true friendship is one that is lasting. It need not be present all the time, but when it is, it warms the heart beyond imaginable words. It can be borne out of a lifetime of knowing another, or a short particular period where the spirit of comradeship takes place. In rare occasions, it can be bonded within the wink of an eye. In whichever circumstance, true friends will remain as such and cherish their moments together, sometimes passing down the relationship built to their children. This, is especially true in friendships of old.
This entry, is dedicated to Cikgu Nazir and his friends, and their quest in searching for another - a bunch of young boys (then), who called themselves JACHFRINS during their schooldays in Bukit Mertajam. The picture below, was one taken during their final days in school and the story can be read here.
Of the boys in the picture, Cikgu and his friends are searhing for Radzi, who ironically is not in the picture. Perhaps, Radzi was the photographer. Still, if any visitors recognise anyone in the picture and do know of Radzi, kindly contact Cikgu at firstname.lastname@example.org . May Allah s.w.t. reward you for your kind assistance.
