I can still vividly remember the first time we met. class of 1.11, 1993. He was small compared to the other boys, even smaller than Addie and Mud. Modestly dressed, unlike Bad yang segak bergaya dengan jam Tag nya!. But the main reason you can’t hardly unnoticed him was his very very thick glasses! Macam b*nt*t botol! I’ve never seen such a thick and heavy (I think it was heavy) glasses!. His eyes seemed so small and sepet behind those glasses. Sure nerd mamat ni was my first impression.
Me and my mulut jahat: Kalau kau tak pakai spec tu cam mana?
Zuki : Tak nampak, nampak bayang saja.
Me : Waaa that bad huh?
But I think those glasses made him special, made me want to know him more. Throughout our friendship, I like him for not being kedekut ilmu, for being patience towards my perangai, for being frank in giving advices, very polite (unlike budak2 lelaki lain), and the best part is he is VERY GOOD in programming!. Selain awal2 dah booked him as my group mate in whatever assignment, I usually tried to seat somewhere near or at least betul2 belakang him at the lab so that I can peak his monitor, copying his coding! Hahahahahaha. If we were not in the same group, I will always ask him to help and ngendeng2 to see his coding yang cangih-canggih. Oh, I miss those days.
But look at him now. Metrosexually handsome, traveling here and there. Those two pictures he send me through emails somewhere last year, telling me his wonderful life and all.

And last May ketemu dia. During Samsung Challenge 2007, Pyramid Megalane. Masih cun, masih ramah, masih ketawa begitu, and masih bujang!
Iman kagum ngan handphone canggih Zuki
Satu ayat dia : Macam tak percaya kau dah ada anak Dd!
Ye la…knowing me dulu-dulu kan…
