ANCIENT MARINER aka CAPTAIN YUSOF. RIP

The Ancient Mariner

"I cannot change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination" - Jimmy Dean.





It is indeed with a sad heart that I read about Yusof leaving us this morning, coming as it does hardly a week after his mother had passed away.

I got to know Yusof over the last couple of years through our common interest in blogging and politics. I enjoyed his company at teh tarik Tuesdays in Central Market with Desi and as co-committe member of BUM 2009. We were all due to meet up next week with Rocky to pursue the registration of BUM.

This was a man of great intelligence, integrity and surprisingly sharp wit. But, most of all I admired him for his tenacity in pursuing and exposing the scandal at PKFZ.

He had served the nation well for many years with great honour and distinction. His family must be justifiably proud of this MAN of great stature.

Commiserations to his wife and children. A good soul has left us for better shores. We shall miss him dearly.

He's got to visit Davy Jones locker, the dream of every seafaring sailor.

Though I have never met him, his blog showed that he was a man of integrity, character and most of all, a gentleman.

I will miss his writings.

Rest in peace, Captain.
