A Nostalgia To Play Chess At PPAS

The venue of the upcoming chess tournament, "Battle Chess Selangorku", has been changed from ICT in Section 7 to the old Raja Tun Uda Library (PPAS) in Section 14, Shah Alam.

It is both bad news and good news for GiLoCatur.

It is a bad news because the dream of playing chess at ICT has been dashed. And it is a good news because  it will be a nostalgia for GiLoCatur to play at the new venue. 

GiLoCatur had played at the library way back in 1988 at the age of 20 years old. It is the only chess tournament that GiLoCatur had the certificate of attendance at the time. The certificate is still in good condition even though GiLoCatur had kept it for almost 24 years.  

A 24-year-old certificate

Hey, it is not only CM Fadli aka stonemaster keeps an old chess tournament certificate of attendance as per his blog entry. GiLoCatur does as well. Actually, GiLoCatur does not realize that GiLoCatur was really crazy about chess when young. In the first resume back in early 1992, GiLoCatur had stated playing chess as the first of three hobbies.

So, GiLoCatur can't wait to participate in the upcoming Battle Chess Selangorku tournament. CAN YOU?
