Alam Akademik

When I went back to Terengganu I went to Alam Akademik.


Alam Akademik []


Alam Akademik is my grand mother’s book shop.

It is the oldest book shop in Kuala Terengganu.

Long long time ago the name of the shop was Keda Pok Loh Yunang.

Alam Akademik is near the Pasar Payang.

There are lots of books at the shop.

I like to help at the shop.

I helped to arrange the books at the shop.




My big sister Anisah Afifah helped to arrange the books too.

I also helped my sister to arrange the books.



I like to go to Alam Akademik because I can read lots of books.

There are lots of story books at the shop.

The books have beautiful pictures.

I think Alam Akademik is gonna have a new place to read books.

  1. I used to buy books from Alam Akademik bookstore when I was in secondary school but unfortunately this shop is now gone and replaced by new buildings. I hope there will be a legacy Pok Loh Yunang re-opened the Alam Akademik in the near future.

    P.s: Happy to see you arrange the books 🙂


    1. Dear zulfahasan,
      I am very sad that Alam Akademik is now gone. I love the book shop very much and used to go there whenever I went back to Kuala Terengganu. And I am sad because the historical buildings are now gone. The buildings were more than a hundred years old. The other states in Malaysia are proud of their old historical buildings. Uncle Awang Goneng was also upset about it. He wrote about it in his blog and that article was published in his book, ‘A Map Of Trengganu’.
