Takziah kepada keluarga beliau.
A very quiet person, a humble person, an unassuming person, he was a friendly guy who got along well with all the classmates. His absence will be greatly felt.

Bekas Pelajar ‘Class of 60’, Penolong-Penolong Kanan, guru-guru, staf sokongan, barisan kepimpinan pelajar, para pelajar dan hadirin yang dikasihi sekalian
Terlebih dahulu, saya mewakili seluruh warga The Malay College ingin mengucapkan Selamat Datang kepada bekas-bekas pelajar Class of 60 kerana dapat kembali semula ke MCKK bagi menghadiri Majlis Makan Malam dan Majlis Ramah Mesra bersama guru-guru, staf sokongan dan para pelajar sekalian. Sesungguhnya kehadiran Y. Bhg. Dato’-Dato’, Datin-Datin, tuan-tuan dan puan-puan amat kami alu-alukan dan pastinya mempunyai makna yang amat besar kepada warga Malay College sekalian. Sesungguhnya kehadiran Y. Bhg. Dato’-Dato’, tuan-tuan dan puan-puan pada hemat saya, pasti dapat memberikan inspirasi kepada pelajar-pelajar MCKK masa kini untuk memajukan diri dan mendapatkan gambaran sebenar tentang etos serta tradisi The Malay College pada suatu ketika dahulu.
Y. Bhg. Dato’-Dato’, Datin-Datin, tuan-tuan dan puan-puan yang saya hormati,
Saya difahamkan bahawa perjumpaan di Malay College ini sebagia menyambut Ulang Tahun ke 50 pelajar Class of 60 meniggalkan Malay College ini. Pastinya banyak kenangan, idea dan kepakaran yang ingin dikongsi bersama dengan semua warga Malay College pada hari ini. Saya sekali lagi mengucapkan ribuan terima kasih kepada Class of 60 atas usaha yang murni ini. Harapan kami agar usaha seperti ini haruslah diteruskan dari semasa ke semasa, dan diteladani oleh kumpulan-kumpulan lain.
Sebagai salah sebuah Sekolah Berprestasi Tinggi di negara ini, pihak kami amat mengharapkan permuafakatan yang berkesan daripada pelbagai pihak, terutama dalam kalangan bekas pelajar bagi membangunkan sekolah dan membawa hala tuju yang lebih luas terutama membawa MCKK sehingga ke peringkat antarabangsa. Justeru, kehadiran Class of 60 pastinya dapat memupukkan semangat kekitaan dan memberi idea-idea baru yang boleh membantu pihak sekolah meningkatkan kecemerlangan. Saya mohon permuafakatan yang terjalin ini dapat menyuburkan jalinan kerjasama yang jitu demi kecemerlangan dan kesejahteraan di Malay College.
Akhir kata, saya mengharapkan semua warga Malay College dapat memberikan kerjasama kepada Class of 60 sepanjang majlis ini berlangsung dan gunakanlah peluang ini untuk bertemu dan menjalinkan hubungan silaturrahim yang mesra dan bermakna. Semuga majlis ini akan menjadi suatu kenangan yang manis dan tidak akan dilupakan ‘selagi hayat dikandung badan’. Justeru, demi Malay College, marilah sama-sama kita melaksanakan tradisi kecemerlangan yang telah tuan-tuan jayakan supaya akan tersemai kepada generasi baru Malay College pada masa hadapan. Ucapan terima kasih dirakamkan kepada Class of 60 kerana menaja menu makanan tambahan kepada pelajar Tingkatan 3, 4 dan 5 dan majlis Malan Malam di Dewan Carey pada hari ini. Rakaman penghargaan jua saya hulurkan kepada para guru dan para pelajar yang menjayakan persediaan kepada program ini.
Sekian, terima kasih.

In 1960 we took our School Cert and in 2010 we returned to visit the old place, MCKK which we remember as if 50 year ago was only yesterday. We left the place in tears, and those of us who boarded the train out of Kuala Kangsar not knowing whether we are coming back after the SC results is out, and some of us did not want to come back after staying at the MCKK all those years, some had earlier joined at the Kings Pavilion in Standard 4 and some in Form 1 and some in Form 3 years later. And we became friends and buddies, and on our retirements we formed the Patikans, which the nickname for the MCKK Class of year 1960 and those who were supposed to take the SC exams in 1960.

It was with great sadness , to record that Sdr Zulkernain Sidin passed away in the early morning of Saturday 03 July 2010 in Seremban.
A very jovial person, cooperative in all aspects, and always been with the Patikan Group even though his health was failing.
He would attempt to join the Patikan monthly breakfast on all occassions, even though he might even have to travel in a vehicle whilst on a wheel chair.
We will all miss his company.
Perhaps other Patikan may like to make 'comments' in this blog.
May Allah SWT be always with his soul.
Innalillah ....... A-Faatihah.

If the news is true, it is sad.
Its only MCKK has such tradition (as far as I know, of schools in Malaysia); it may seem small but it is a part of character building at MCKK.
Those of us who have been to MCKK, and our children who have followed us, have always looked forward to dining at High Table. Its not the food, but its the honour, and its a the tradition that is most valuable.
I just want to record here that the Patikans have been very lucky to have a few of our old teachers as guests at our monthly breakfast meets. We are planning to invite more of our old MCKK teachers to our monthly breakfasts meets.
Here we have CikGu Mohammad, CikGu Mohd Noor, CikGu Mohd Ali..

This happened at the Patikan monthly breakfast held at Sdr Wan Mahmud's house in Ulu Langat. Welcome to the Patikan (MCKK Class 60) Group, Puan Sharifah Hasmah bt. Tuan Muda

Anyway we had a good time at his place in Kuala Pilah. 3 acres of well kept compound, grass trimmed, with fruit trees, fruiting, and a fish pond. One of the Patikans came all ready to go fishing but was disappointed when he saw only a fish pond with a few dozen domesticated tilapia fish. I think that Patikan disappeared and went fishing in a river nearby (Did he?).
Good food, good company, what more can one ask for? ‘Rendang’ kampong chicken, ‘rendang’ lamb (or was it goat?) and ‘rendang’ duck. To a few Patikan’s wives, these were strange stuff, so ….. some decided not to eat. But there were other alternatives and no one went home, after the gathering, hungry.
And the durian, they were plentiful, the Patikan ate the fruits to their hearts content. Maybe a few ate too much and went home bloated and some may even had to take extra medicines when they got home.
Patikan was pleased to see Sdr Zulkernain, who came even though he was on a wheel chair. And Sdr Faisal who had been absent for a long time from such Patikan gathering. So glad to see them two.
And for sick (and hospitalised) friends, Patikan passed a hat around, Sdr Ariffin Omar’s hat that was. And the collection came to RM 761 ……… quite good for retirees like us.
And Happy Birthday to those Patikan (and wives) born in June.

The following were in the class.
Sdr Hussain and 2 of his children (who assisted in the lessons, we thank them).
Sdr Wan Mustapha.
and Sdr Mazlan and wife (both came in later).
and of course Sdr Mokhtar and wife, the facilities owners.
Thank you Sdr Mokhtar for allowing us to use your house and your facilities. And the food, it was beyond expectations.

Sunday 12 April, a ‘tahlil’ and ‘doa selamat’ was held at Sdr Mokhtar's house. All Patikans were invited, and many turned up, with their wives.
Congratulation to you both. May your happiness last, forever.
And it was also announced that Sdr Mazlan and wife had also been married for over 40 years now. Our heartiest congratulation to Sdr Mazlan and wife as well.
Sdr Mokhtar must be a keen gardener, look at the flowers found in the compound of his house.

At Engku Mohd Annuar's house on
Sunday, March 01, 2009
It was a real family gathering, happy mood, and ‘thanksgiving’ all around to everyone involved for making the group graciously happy as it is. Many have already left us forever but the wives and children have joined the group to keep the memory fresh.
Sdr Syed Ridzuan's son came with his wife, they have just got married a couple of months ago. And Sdr Zain Hj Idris re-appeared after being absent for such a long long time.
(Here he was standing with one of the breakfast co-host, Sdr Hussein Shaari, right on the far wall)
And as usual we have the Happy Birthday occasion for those with the birthdates falling during the month, in this case Feb. Smiling loving couple, you know who, happens to have birthdates in Feb. for both of them
And to Sdr Wan Mat, one of the Patikans, we have to give a token of our appreciation for being such a good host during our Jan. visit to his kampong. Here his wife is accepting that token. Just take a guess which of the three ladies is Wan Mat’s wife? (No prize for the right answer. She is the sweet lady, flowery dress, on the left side as you are looking at the photo)
And we had the honour of having the right hand part of the MCOBA Management with us. It was good of the Management to allow us to use the Penthouse for the gathering.
And the video of the stage show at last years MCOBA Annual Dinner was shown, two of our class mates played certain leading parts in that stage show. Sdr Syed Elias, one of the co-host for the breakfast is also one of the active members along with Sdr Hussein Shaari. And Sdr Syed Elias is shown sitting on the sofa, nearest the camera, watching the video.
