Rest in peace, GrandDad and GrandMa. We'll come visit whenever we can.
This neem tree made news sometime back when it produced copious latex, that some people say look as if the tree was crying. Perhaps it was crying for the lost old mosque.
The cemetery is next to the old Masjid Raja, which has since been demolished to make way for a new structure. What a travesty. We found the "new" mosque unfinished, the site abandoned with building materials strewn all over the place and rubbish left piling in the workers' quarters. We cry for the lost old mosque and we cry for the yet to be finished "new" mosque.
The "new" mosque - unfinished and abandoned.
They scooted off and left even the blueprint to rot.
The signboard says it all - work on the new mosque was supposed to be completed in April 2009 as work started in January 2008. It is now August 2010. The white wooden structure is the temporary "surau."
Our sources say the contractors been paid in full but didn't finish the job. Can someone do something? Or else we'll get our cat patrol in KT to swarm the local JKR office and do a poopful. roar! roar! roar!
Ramadan Mubarak everyone!
