It is Sunday 12.08 pm.

I am reading two e-mails from En. Mohammad Shidek Nazaran which I received on 7 and 8 August 2005.

The e-mail on 7 August 2005 contained an attached article from a book entitled "Dr. Hamzah Haji Taib", in Pejuang Terbilang Johor by Professor Ramlah Adam, pages 91-97, produced by Yayasan Warisan Johor. He said it will be quite an effort to seek more information concerning his grandfather as those who lived during his time had died. He does not know whether his siblings from the second mother are still alive. He will try to search for a photograph of his grandfather. He recalls having seen a photograph of his grandparents when he was small.

His e-mail on the following day, 8 August 2005, explained about his occupation and how he came to know about his grandfather. He explained that he had listened to some of Prof. Ramlah Adam's lectures while he was with Johor Corporation. According to him, Prof. Ramlah Adam had deep knowledge of his grandfather and his family, and he was moved when she spoke of him as he barely had knowledge of his own grandfather. He agreed to to send more information about Dr. Hamzah's second wife who was featured in another volume of Yayasan Warisan Johor.

It is 12.35 pm.
