Once in a while (probably 3 – 4 months in my case), something new will crop up either at my work place or home that will take my interest on a full time basis.

Parit MP Nasaruddin Hashim had been appointed as the new Felcra Berhad chairman.He replaces Datuk Hamzah Zainuddin whose term of office expired last month. Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Abdul Aziz Shamsuddin, who announced the appointment, said Nasaruddin would hold the post for two years from today.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Second Finance Minister Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop had agreed to the appointment. Abdul Aziz also thanked Hamzah, who held the post since 1999, and his board of directors for their services.
“Following the appointment, new members would be appointed to the board and new officials for the subsidiary companies,” he said after presenting zakat and Hari Raya contributions to 150 single mothers as well as donations to masjid and surau representatives and Umno branch chairmen under Gopeng Umno division.
Abdul Aziz said Felcra and Risda must get back to basics and focus on their core businesses which were rubber and oil palm and to enjoy higher yields.

Even my son helped out in the house shifting by packing and arranging his toys – seen here the next day exhausted and resting at the entrance.
