Things rolled up and finished so quickly at the end of 2011, and then all of a sudden 2012 was upon us ...

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Three people retired from the English department in 2011. When the much loved Dr Nur Azila announced she was retiring, we were all invited to a wonderful meal and enjoyable gathering at the Ri-Yaz Resort on Pulau Duyong (the island in the middle of the river in Kuala Terengganu).

It was a "steamboat" meal, and the IPG Rector (who was also retiring) was a special guest.

The whole IPG faculty then attended a celebration for all of the retirees (not just English Department).

At this function, besides a fabulous buffet meal being served, everyone received a raffle ticket as they arrived and then dozens of prizes were drawn for including several diamond rings and bicycles...

It was a lot of fun even though (to the amazement of our friends around us who were all winners) we didn't win anything!
