Sayonara, AT-San



I was busy with work and also updating http://www.malaysiaclubjakarta.com/ website on behalf of the MCJ EXCO and forgotten to say a word or two about AT Chuan. I must admit that due to personal reasons, I did not attend the wake and this article in my blog act as a sign of my last respect to AT Chuan who passed away peacefully on March 11, 2008 at about 12.20 p.m. in Jakarta.



As far as I can recall, AT is one of the very first few Malaysian whom I’ve met during my early days in Jakarta way back in 2000 and it was during one of the MCJ monthly gathering. Thanks to my lovely wife who insisted that I get myself registered at the Malaysian Embassy, otherwise, I would not have met so many Malaysian in Jakarta.

The very first time I met AT Chaun, he was warm and courteous and he certainly knew how to make a fellow countryman feel welcomed in a foreign land. I recalled how we spoke and he later introduced me to the other MCJ members who were present then. The rest is history.
8 years on, now you’re gone, may your soul rest in peace. (bow once, bow twice, bow three times)

I can't put a comment in MCJ. I just want to say, he's been a very good uncle to me and all of my cousins. Icong AT has been my dearest uncle and I will miss him as well as his wise guidance.

I'm sorry that I can't even come to see him one last time.
