Tuesday, 8 November 2005, 9.31 am - 9.57 am.

I received an e-mail from En. Mohd. Fadli Ghani dated 28 September 2005. He asked who Dato' Anwar Fazal is, and whether he was the PBB (UNDP) officer. I replied yes. He thanked me for informing him about the ceremony on Friday, 25 November 2005 at 3 pm, UKM campus, Jalan Pahang to officially rename the Medical Library at UKM campus, Jalan Pahang to Dr. Abdul Latiff. He will try to attend if he has time.

He will try to send a photograph of Dr. Burhanuddin with another Malay doctor, probably Dr. Farish Noor's grandfather (see Search 62).

He has attached 3 photographs of Dr. Haji Abbas Alias:

Photograph 1 (Dr Abbas Bola) - Dr. Haji Abbas photographed in front of Kelab Sultan Sulaiman, KL following the establishment of the Persatuan Bola Sepak Melayu Malaya (PBMM). Dr. Haji Abbas (middle) was elected as the first Presiden PBMM, 1948.

Photograph 2 (Dr Abbas 5) - Dr. Haji Abbas after retirement.
