Keluarga Cikgu Radzi


Such a big family right? Well introducing to you guys my family on my fathers side. The picture above was taken years ago, about 12 years ago, I think. Now our family members has increased and arwah Cikgu Radzi and his wife Hajah Huyah are no longer here. Looking back at the old photograph makes me remind me when my grandparents were still around. I was not so close with my grandparents on my fathers side but what I do remember is that atok taught me how to write jawi and liked telling stories. He also has a sense of humor even though he puts on a serious face all the time.
I kinda miss coming to Atok's house at the evening and before I even step foot in the house area I could see Atok sitting on his lazy chair at the balcony of the house. It had become a habit and then before entering the door I could see nenek at the kitchen.
There's a sorrow feelings sometimes when we look back at our old photographs. Atok and Nenek dah tak ada, the parents are still the same though but the children inside there are all grown up and yes, they are now at different places all over. Guess which one is me.
One thing about our family most of them are all educated and graduated from various Universities all over Malaysia and the world. Atok really was strict with his children's education and I know that all of his children got canned and smacked when he was teaching them. But the results were something to be grateful for.
What I like most when entering my grandparents house is that at the upstairs living room there are pictures all over the walls, pictures of my uncles and aunties graduating. Its almost like a display of successful people. Looking at it also makes me want to have my picture hung up there to. My dad is also up there and I want my picture to be besides him.

P/s: Find me :)

Prof Madya Dr Shaiful Bahri Md. Radzi

Well yesterday was Fathers Day and I didn't really know how to wish fathers day to my dad cause I don't talk much with him.


My father is known as a strict and scary person among my friends and family. My dad is really strict but now not that strict as he used to be when I was little. I can't remember how many times I got canned when I was little. I got canned when I could read well, I got canned when I could not count fast, I got canned when I make to much noise, I got canned when I didn't look after my sister, I got canned when I raise my voice, I got canned when I don't finish my food, I got canned when I watch telly without permission, I got canned when I am disrespectful and I got canned for many reason. There were a lot of canes in my house and most of them have been split into pieces. I tried hiding the canes but one cane I hide my dad buys two other canes, if the canes are all gathered up there might be enough to even make a chair out of it.

Even though my dad canned me a lot when I was little I really thank him for that now. He structured me well till I avoid as hard as possible not to damage myself. My dad taught me reading, counting, manners and respect and if he hadn't paid attention or canned me when I was little, maybe I'll become like those others spoiled brats. Mostly I thank him for giving me education, I think if he wasn't so fussy about my education I would not even make it to University and maybe I won't even have the opportunity to further my studies at all. I own a lot to my dad and I really thank him for that.

What I miss the most about my dad is that when I was little my dad liked to take me on walks and to the park. It was really fun and I miss those days so much especially when he comes fetch me after school and buy me snacks otw home. And what I still remember till now is when after I get canned I will cry in front of the books that my dad made me to do and then I'll fall asleep, the next morning I know I'm already tucked in bed. I know that dad carried me and tucked me in bed when he found me asleep on the floor with dried tears all over. I also miss the jokes my dad used to do when I was little. There was also a habit when I was little every time before me and my sister go to bed we have to kiss my fathers hand cheeks and wish him good night. We did that every night until I no longer stay in my house every night anymore. That means that habit stopped when I entered University.

I'm 19 years old this year and soon I'll be leaving my teen world. Sometimes its sad cause the more I grow up the more that my parents see me as an adult and the more I survive on my own. My dad taught me to be independent a long long time ago and that's why I have no more quality time with my dad anymore. I love talking and sharing stories and mum is always there for me. I really appreciate that but sometimes I do really miss my dad. He is so busy now, he hardly takes us on a vacation or something. I really wish someday our whole family will go on a vacation together.

Since I can't say it to you dad better I just write it down. Happy Fathers Day and thank you for everything, Thank you for my education, Thank you for my manners, Thank you for structuring me into a person and a muslim as well. Thank you for everything dad. I owe to you a lot and I hope that someday I could make you proud.

P/s: Yesterday was fun

Surau AR-Radzi, Surau Keluarga Cikgu Radi

Just ask any permanent residents of Telok Panglima Garang Selangor, those families who have been living there for a very long time. Ask them about Haji Md Radzi bin haji Arshad or Cikgu Radi.
They will say "Orang Telok mana yang tak kenal Cikgu Radi"
Why is he so well known among the people of Telok Panglima Garang?
Lets read his Biography shall we?

Haji Md Radzi bin haji Arshad adalah seorang tokoh yang disegani. Beliau dilahirkan pada 6 Disember 1930 di Simpang dan mendapat pendidikan awal di Sekolah Melayu Telok Panglima Garang dari 1938-1942. Persekolahanya terhenti akibat Perang Dunia Kedua (1942-1945) tetapi disambung semula antara 1946-1947. Ketika berusia 17 tahun, beliau memulakan kerjaya gurunya apabila dilantik menjadi guru pelatih di Sekolah Melayu Telok Panglima Garang pada 1 Febuari 1948. Kemudian beliau ditukarkan ke Sekolah Melayu Princes Road, Kuala Lumpur pada September 1951. Gagal ke Sultan Idris Training Collage (SITC) akibat lebih umur, latihan gurunya dikuasai melalui Normal Class antara 1949-1952 di Kelang (Tahun I dan II) dan Kuala Lumpur (Tahun III). Setelah Tamat Latihan pada Julai 1952 dan diangkat sebagai pelatih terbaik negeri Selangor, beliau ditempatkan di Sekolah Melayu Sungai Buaya. Pada Januari 1960, Hj Md. Radzi dipindahkan ke Sabak Bernam di Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Besar dan kemudianya dilantik pula sebagai Guru Ketua pada Julai 1965 di Darjah Menengah Kebangsaan Parit 9. Di Sabak Bernam beliau berpeluang memperbaiki pencapaian akademiknya apabila lulus SRP (1962), SPM (1963), STP (1965). Kejayaanya dalam STP memberinya peluang memasuki Maktab Perguruan Bahasa, Lembah Pantai, Kuala Lumpur pada Julai 1966. Tamat kursus beliau ditempatkan di Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Telok Datok pada Januari 1967 dengan menekuni bidang bahasa dan sastera Melayu. Apabila Sekolah Menengah Telok Panglima Garang dibuka pada Januari 1973, beliau menjadi salah seorang daripada tenaga pengajar perintis di situ. Pada Disember 1979 beliau dinaikkan pangkat ke jawatan Penolong Kanan di Sekolah Kebangsaan Kebun Baru. Hj Md. Radzi dilantik menjadi Guru Besar Sekolah Kebangsaan Bandar pada Ogos 1982 dan seterusnya Januari 1984 sebagai Guru Besar Sekolah Olak Lempit yang merupakan sekolah terakhirnya. Setelah berkecimpung dalam profession perguruan selama 37 tahun 10 bulan di 10 buah sekolah, akhirnya pada 13 Disember 1985 Hj Md. Radzi bin Hj Arshad bersara. Semasa persaraan beliau melibatkan diri dalam aktiviti kemasyarakatan  apabila bertidak sebagai bendahari Masjid Al-Hidayah, PIBG, koperasi dan persatuan peladang, Hj Md. Radzi kembali kerahmatullah pada 6 Disember 2005 kerana sakit tua ketika usianya 75 tahun. Semasa hayatnya beliau sentiasa dikenang sebagai seorang guru yang amat tegas dalam soal pendidikan.

The Biography above was written by Prof Madya Dr.Shaiful Bahri Md. Radzi. 

 From the title of this post you could already guess that there is a surau taken from the name of Hj. Md. Radzi.  The main contributor for this surau is Hj Burhanuddin Md. Radzi.

Not forgetting also the sons and daughters of Hj Md. Radzi that also contributed a lot to build up this Surau.

For your info Surau AR RADZI is something that our family is really proud of. The surau is located at Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan Telok Panglima Garang since most of our family members still live in Telok Panglima garang and most of them also went to school there. Telok Panglima Garang is where our family gained their early knowledge from generation to generation so this is a way for us to mark that our family was once there at Telok Panglima Garang.
My Grandfather Hj Md. Radzi was a great man, he did many great things and he also contributed in building Sekolah Rendah Agama Telok Panglima Garang years back when he was still alive. 
I'm gonna write more about Hj Md. Radzi in another post and explain why he is really well known among the people of Telok Panglima Garang.
Till then, bye

It is currently day 2

Picture tak ada kena mengena dengan topik
The Puncakians are getting very busy day and night. Morning there are classes, activities and also work to be done. But at night it is like entering another world when the house lights are on but the people are all outside, talking, laughing, playing badminton, buying burgers and just lepaking. I find it really different this semester than the other three semesters. I think this semester is much more better than the last two semester.
Btw today is currently day 2. Day 2 of what? Keep on following maybe I'll tell you someday.

P/s: I hate the new name for our faculty, Film, Theatre and Animation, (Perkauman course betul!) ai bangkang habis2!
