April Fools' Day and it is raining cats and dogs here in Kelana Jaya.

I am supposed to go and join my friend Hj. Harun man our Friends of Kelana Jaya Park exhibit stall at the week-long carnival organised by Lembaga Tabung Haji at their nearby HQ building open car park. But the way it has been pouring since early morning I doubt very much if anyone's going to turn up this very wet Sunday. Not many turned up at the official launch yesterday by a former Mentri Besar, even though it was a public holiday here in Selangor. Hj. Harun just called to say he isn't coming today either.

It has been quite a hectic week, trying to help some friends and associates by opening some doors for them and culminating with an IKMAL Council meeting at the posh Malaysian Petroleum Club (MPC) premises on the 42nd floor of the KLCC skyscraper towers on Friday afternoon. Had to borrow a tie to get in ...
