The passing of a good friend

Abriza Mohammed, a former colleague, succumbed to cancer last Monday.

She was barely 40.

I'd known Abi during my short stint at JPBD, Jalan Cenderasari. In fact, we were office mates for a while when I was roped in to help out in the review of the Town and Country Planning Act (Act A1129).

She was a kind person with a heart of gold.

She had a peculiar sense of humour which I thoroughly enjoyed. Every now and then, during meetings, we'd end up in a bantering, using wickedly chosen words.

Just for the memory of it, here is a description of herself, in her own words, as taken from her blog:

Abriza Mohammed: "make awesome asam pedas, congkak champion 1987, hate to use umberella when it rains, sangat malas mandi and sad movies always always always make me cry!! "

Good bye Abi.

Semoga ALlah mencucuri rahmat ke atas roh mu, dan ditempatkan bersama orang-orang yang solehah dan beriman.
