Salam Pengenalan

I have been following Abedib and Dato Azahar (both are my schoolmates) blogs for quite sometime, got interested in Awang Goneng's Trengganuspeaks in his Kecek-Kecek and found Kata Kama in my search for pictures on Teluk Bidara beach. The demise of one fellow blogger, Ms Ruby Ahmad (Al Fatihah) has somehow made me realized that there are so many good bloggers out there that care for their fellow bloggers..

Following more blogs , however, landed me on some political blogs that somehow got me into thinking.. oh shoot how many good minds got in this quagmire of trying to put their words into others' mouths. These are minds that can make our earth a better place to live, what a waste!?. That push me back into thinking maybe I will write something that I should or can share with others..after I am no longer a cooley, afterall I am still an 8 to 5 worker.

However, in my excitement to comment on Kata Kama's nostalgic "To Sir With Love" the other day, I end up with a site that indicates that I have been blogging since March 2010.

Rather than appearing "nnawwok or lebong", Trengganuspeaks for cheating or bluffing, here I am on the last day of March 2010.. introducing my blog.. Minyak Gaz.

It should be Minyok Gah, Trengganuspeaks for kerosene.. the fuel that light up at least 12 years of my nights in Pulau Duyong, Trengganu, until I was fortunate enough to be nudged out of the island to go to Sekolah Dato' Abdul Razak, Tanjung Malim. But then "Gah" is the Malay word for Megah(a word that does not always carry a good connotation) whereas Gaz is a French word for Gas.

Oil (Minyak) and Gas is an industry which I have been involved since joining Petronas since October 1979..thus Minyak Gaz is a subject matter very close to my heart.

SDARa Wan Sharif ...


Thanks for changing to a new format to make it easier for people like me to participate. Infact I beat Bond and MK as I tried to post my comments before Fajr prayer. It's April 1, guessed it fooled me.

I do not know about the passing of Ruby if not for your posting. I had breakfast with her and together with her OGA excos sometime back in 2007 at PJ Hilton. May ALLAH bless her soul.

Happy GAZZZZing.

Welcome my friend to the world of blogging.

Writing is very relaxing, as long as we do not hurt someone's feelings intentionally.

I am sure you have chapters of your experience in the O&G (oil & gas and not Obstetrics and gynaecology!) to tell fellow bloggers.

Brother Adib and Azahar,
Thank for the support, oil exploration does not seem to have many thing that can be of interest to the moment at least..
excuse me for visiting without dropping a line.. I do not want to spoil the party.. your blog have so many followers and very up to date..
Thank you so much for dropping by, your blog tell me how much I miss Khartoum.. I was there only for 10 months and 7 days.. to busy working, playing and patah kaki(tak ada kereta) then to tour around bumi Auliya.. been following your blog for quite some time now..
Could not write too much now.. too many good blogs to read and have been doing 2 jobs at the same time.. helping a friend in difficulty.. very interesting time though..

With some time to spare I visited my usual sites and decided to leave some comments on one. That 'Wan' among the few who had left comments caught my eyes and I wondered if this 'Wan' was from Terengganu. So here I am, curious. So you are from Duyong, below the bridge that drive over almost every day. A belated 'welcome' to you and salaam from Pakcik.

Wan Sharif said...

Salaam Bro Hassan,
I am probably a bit old to address you as Pakcik. Thank you for the visit and for dropping a line.

Wan Sharif said...

Deares Ina,
