Dear Kama,

6 hari seminggu tarik troli. Tanpa kami berempat, pagi di DGCC senyap sunyi. Gelak ketawa kami boleh didengar seluruh golf course. He..he..he.

Dear Sharif,

Of course I know him. A very creative person. He left the Air Force while serving as my Nuri Flight Cmdr in Labuan. I think it's inappropriate to reveal his name in public.

Maj!
A memory that the pilot will have to live with and the uncertainty of the risk encountered during the mission and only GOD knows! But will you be appreciated or praised- no... surely not that what we want but it all fated. No regret I believe to all chopper pilot and pray to ALLAH that all of you guys in good health and good luck with your loving family.
The great thing of yesteryear RMAF leaderships were, they have balls to bring people to court martial as to get the truth as well as giving people the opportunity to defend accordingly but I was told by a friend that present leadership has none apart from abusing their authority just to cover their asshole (CYA). What a pity! Sorry sir!!!
