GRRRRR. Arrrgh. And sometimes a travel log.

On 27 January 2005, Sham and Tahar receive an SMS from Pak Ali, asking about our well-being. He tells them that the school had reopened for lessons that day. Enrolment is good, 300 students in all, and all but one of the teachers have returned to teach.

He ends the message: Do not forget us.

The school has since been adopted by Mercy Relief and a MOU has been signed with UNICEF that Mercy Relief would be responsible for the rebuilding and restoration of the Sekolah Muhammadiyah and the two orphanages in the neighbourhood.

Eddie has since gone and come back from the school. Ming is due to leave soon (11 March).

I have asked to return as well.

We will get to finish what we started after all.
