I'm back to my former secondary school Sekolah Alam Shah to assist the alumni organizing our annual Rugby 7 a side called PutraJaya Seven 2009. Although during my time which was way back in 1986 the school was located in Cheras still the memory of a boarding school students remains.

It's not easy organizing such an event and in Malaysia this is one of the premier rugby event in the Malaysian Rugby Union calendar and to be part of it is something special. I've to admit it's tiring having to drive early in the morning from Kelang to PutraJaya 2 days in a row (Saturday and Sunday) with no allowance but the spirit of ex rugby player and ex Alam Shah keep me going and this is my 3rd year involvement organizing the tournament.

The next one which is in 2010 will be even bigger and the alumni members (the Datuks and Tan Sris) are considering to put it in the Tourism Malaysia Calendar for 2010.
