Cikgu Sazali is the son of Dato' Meor. Although he was an adopted child like the late Cikgu Siti Kalsom, he was raised and taken cared by the late Dato' and Datin since at the early age. It is indeed a great pleasure to have a chat with him, although I spent only a "tea-time" at his house. It was not difficult to find him as everyone at Taiping should know the every Gayong family there.
Before coming to visit him, I stopped by and took a look at the Dato's house. It's sad to view a great Mahaguru's house and Gelanggang where most of the senior Gayong Masters nowadays came from in such a pity condition. I wish I could see it when it was still "beautiful". Cikgu Sazali indeed revealed his sad feeling about the house. The Dato's mural painting is still in the house. I am not sure exactly what is happening, but I think all of the member and disciple of Silat Seni Gayong should do something. Everyone of us Anak Gayong must think and help. How could the great Gelanggang of Ayer Kuning could be "degraded" in such of horrible condition? But no one seems to care, even though for certain, they cry for the situation but helpless and unable to do alone.
I wish I could help. But if I am allowed to ask the Gayong leaders, I wish that our federation could do something to make the house at least as a memorial or a museum. InsyaAllah with the help, contribution and prayer, we all can do it!
Mungkin sesetengah berpendapat membaik pulih rumah arwah Dato' atau menjadikannya sebagai satu "muzium" dianggap remeh berbanding projek-projek Gayong yang lain. Tetapi hati kecil ambo tetap berharap dapat melihat gelanggang ini "gah" kembali, sebagai jejak warisan bagi muda-muda baru bagi mengenal asal-usul Gayong. Wisma Gayong, Pusat Latihan Gayong, Akademi Gayong, Kedai Gayong, Restoran Gayong, Kilang Gayong, semua telah dirancang. Memang sukar untuk merealisasikan semua perancangan dalam masa yang sama, tetapi diharapkan adanya kemajuan dalam melaksanakan idea-idea ini.
