This Guy was My Teacher in Form 2 SDH

Some years back, about 2002 or 2003, I met him at masjid AnNur in Christchurch after Friday prayer. He was attending a conference in Christchurch. No I didnt recognised him, until he speak, which sounds familiar.
The I remember he was my teacher in Matematik for a few month ( he was a cikgu sementara back then) before he continued his studies to USA. Originally from Kg Tiram Buruk, Tanjong Karang. Used to wear red kopiah when he was teaching. That night I went to his hotel and chat about old times for a few hours.
Funny thing, when I told him who I am, who is my father, he knows my father too.
He is the one who told me that Selangor Menteri Besar Khir Toyo was his student at Sek Men Dato Harun, so does Dato Noh Omar.
Not that I knew them.
