A London MCOB in Dubai

you put an mckk (malay college kuala kangsar) boy anywhere in the world, and you see them thrive. a good example is our latest guest, a fellow mcob (malay college old boy) like mr. khairul – and he has been living in london for the past 20 years!

he was in dubai for holiday, taking along a family friend with him. welcome to dubai, bro kazan and family!


Kamil v96, Shamsul v86 (in specs), Kazan v86, Shon v84 (black t), Badak v82, Kay v96


oh, and when an mckk boy comes to dubai, god willing there would be a certain mr. khairul who would round up the other mckk boys for a get-together. where else? our favorite mandi restaurant al-tawasol in deira!

the ‘usual suspects’ were there, the ever supportive bro zaim and bro shon and family. bro kazan’s batchmate joined too – bro shamsul. mr. khairul’s fellow school swimmer kamil also took the time to come by. kamil’s wife is 6 months’ pregnant so she didn’t join him in this dubai trip. keep us updated on that, bro!




nothing beats sitting cross-legged on plush carpets, around delicious mandi rice, in a private tent – just chatting away without a care.

since bro kazan’s children were born and raised in london, you could imagine the way they speak. simply endearing! i absolutely ADORE british accent!


 the usual ‘sacrifice’ – lamb mandi, chicken mandi and fish mandi altogether in a large plate

 my sis-in-law teh, me & the darling kak muna (abg shon’s wife) – next to her is kak rozi (abg zaim’s wife)


sigh. what would the boys be without their ever-supportive significant other – who happily joined in in this happy reunion! while the murid-murid tua chatted about days of yore, kak muna talked about her son who just entered mckk.

hmm. their atuk is mcob. their bapak is mcob. their pak ngah (mr. khairul’s younger bro) is mcob. would khaleef, kahfi and kazim continue the tradition?

the happy mr. khairul, perpetually the ‘party-planner’ of these little get-together of mcobs in the uae, and any who comes and visit, insyaAllah. he would like to thank all his ‘brothers’ who attended to welcome bro kazan to dubai.

hope to see you when we visit london!!!
