Last Sunday I went to Uncle Adnan Othman‘s house for breakfast.
Uncle Adnan is from Terengganu and in ‘Trengganuspeak’, his name is Adnang Othmang.
Uncle Adnan Othman was a very popular singer in the 1960s.
He used to sing with a band named ‘The Rhythm Boys‘.
After that, he worked for Bata Shoes as a shoe designer.
Bata Shoes sent him to London for a shoe making course.
And one of his classmate was the famous shoe maker, Datuk Jimmy Choo.
Now Uncle Adnan do not design shoes anymore.
He is now an artist.
I went to his art gallery and saw so many beautiful paintings.
He draws boats in Terengganu rivers, waterfalls and flowers.
Uncle Adnan also has lots of guitars and he let me play his guitars.
Then my big sister Kaman sang a Cuban song, ‘Guantanamera’ while Uncle Adnan Othman played the guitar.
We also listened to his old songs from his LPs and EPs on his record player.
LP means ‘long-playing’ and EP means ‘extended play’ record album.
That was the first time I listen to songs from a record player!
I really enjoyed meeting Uncle Adnan and he gave us lots of story books.
