I was deeply saddened to know about the passing of Cikgu Sabirin Sulaiman, his wife Puan Halina Said and his two daughters, Siti Aishah Sabirin and Siti Khadijah Sabirin who involved in a fatal accident involving bus at 1 am this morning...on their way back after taking part in a 3C chess tournament at Subang Jaya.
Cikgu Sabirin,as he fondly called...is a Terengganu Chess Association’s Secretary, a Japanese language teacher and if i am not mistaken both Aishah and Khadijah were born at Japan.
Both late Siti Aishah and Siti Khadijah are a strong junior chess players, having took part in many national and events...and yesterday, Siti Khadijah won best under 12 (few weeks earlier she scored 5As in her UPSR)...
Such a loss for chess, especially for the Terengganu chess.
My sincere condolences at this sad time and may all of them be among those He blessed...Al Fatihah.
