Al Fatihah - Rustam A. Sani

My good friend Salha, lost her father-in-law, Rustam A. Sani, yesterday. He passed away at 3am of a heart attack. He was 64.

He is survived by his wife, Rohani, son Azrani, daughter Ariani and grandaughter Arissa.

To me he was a kind, loving, doting grandfather to Arissa who is 2 weeks older than Sarah. I met him at family gatherings and most recent was Arissa's 3rd birthday party at the Lake Club. I still can't believe he is gone.

Reza went to pay his respects and was there until the burial. He said Azrani was in a daze and Auntie Rohani was inconsolable. I cannot imagine their pain and sadness.

Salha was very close to him and from what she told me of him, he was a good man of great intellect.

For more of his thoughts and views, go to

Allah knows best. Amin.

Sarah is 3!

Our beloved girl turned 3 on 28.03.08. We took her to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah for her annual birthday celebration. We stayed at Shangri-La Tg. Aru which was superb. The staff sang her Happy Birthday when we ordered a slice of chocolate cake with 3 candles for her to blow out. She was thrilled. Her favourite spot was the kiddies pool. We ate a lot of seafood. During the 4 days we were there, Sarah ate steamed Tiger Garoupa for almost every meal. She loved it.
