A Surprise Durian Party

20 07 2011

I am standing in front the field facing the Dato' Haji Ahmad Badawi Hall.

On Sunday, July 17, 2011 we had a wonderful durian party at Dato’ Haji Ahmad Badawi Hall, in Butterworth, Penang.

The party started after the seminar(SEMAIAN) that we attended at the hall.

We were going back to the hotel when the uncles from ‘GABUNGAN’ brought us a very big bag of durians.

They said the durians were from orchards in Balik Pulau where the best durians from Penang come from.

The durians were very sweet and tasty.

We had the party outside the seminar room, facing a nice green field, full of pigeons. 

It was the best durian party that I ever had :mrgreen:

To eat the durians, we must first open the fruits 🙂

Pak Cik Burhan is trying had to open a durian..

Mmm...tasty and sweet. I am eating durian..

I(middle) was enjoing durian with my father(L) and Pak Cik Burhan(R).

"Where is my durian?", asked my sad sister Kafah. From left is my mother, Kafah, my father, me and Pak Cik Burhan. Everybody are enjoing tasty durian; except Kafah...

Meeting Uncle Adnan Othman

7 06 2011

Our photo infront of Uncle Adnan's beautiful house. In the back row are Uncle Adnan Othman(L) and Kashah(R) and in the front row are Kafah(L), me(M) and Kaman(R).

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.

Uncle Adnan teaching us on how to how to paint such a beautiful picture.

I went to his art gallery and saw so many beautiful paintings.

Collections of beautiful paintings by Uncle Adnan Othman.

The fruit series by Uncle Adnan Othman.

He draws boats in Terengganu rivers, waterfalls and flowers.

More beautiful painting by Uncle Adnan - waterfall, and boats in Terengganu rivers.

Uncle Adnan also has lots of guitars and he let me play his guitars.

These are some of Uncle Adnan's guitars.

Then my big sister Kaman sang a Cuban song, ‘Guantanamera’ while Uncle Adnan Othman played the guitar.

We are listening to my big sister Kaman singing our favourite song, 'Guantanamera' while Uncle Adnan 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.

My big sisters Kaman(L), me(M), Kafah(R) and at the back is Kashah listening to the songs on the record player.

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.

Rambutan Picking

24 09 2010

Tok Teh's rambutan trees

I was in Terengganu for the last two weeks for Eid holidays.

Kuala Terengganu is my parent’s hometown.

On the second day of Eid we visited Tok Teh.

Tok Teh is my grand aunty.

I called my grand uncle Tok Teh too.

It is very sad that he had passed away.

There were a lot of red, ripe rambutans on the rambutan trees at Tok Teh’s house.

So, a few days later we visited Tok Teh’s house again for a rambutan picking.

Kafah and I with our rambutans

Rambutan is a type of a fruit with hair on its skin.

Ripe, red rambutans

‘Rambut’ is hair in Malay language.

My big sister Kaman used a pole (galah) to pluck the rambutans.

My other sisters and I ran to collect to rambutans.

It was like a ‘rambutan rain’ 🙂

Kashah, Kafah and I rushed to collect the rambutans.

It was really fun.

This is the first time I went rambutan picking.

We sorted our rambutans and counted them. I collected 88 rambutans; more than my sisters did.

It was as fun as apple picking.

Later we ate the fruits.

They were very, very sweet.





A Penang Prawn Noodle Lunch

29 08 2010

I went to Penang last May.

Over there, I had ‘Penang Prawn Noodle’ for lunch.

In Malay, ‘Penang Prawn Noodle’ is ‘Mee Udang Pulau Pinang.

We had our lunch at a restaurant in Sungai Dua, Penang.


There is a big paddy field across the restaurant.

When I reached there it was very hot.

Then it became cooler because it was raining.

I think the noodle was too hot but my parents said it was tasty 🙂

There were lots of prawns in the noodle.

My sisters ate fried kuey teow.


My sisters said the fried kuey teow was very delicious.


We drank coldLai Chee Kang‘; a drink with ice, jelly and lots of other things.

I think the food at the restaurant was delicious but too hot and the place is very hot if it is not raining.

Our Nasheed Performance On You Tube-Part 2

9 01 2010

This is the second song we sang during our nasheed performance at the Masjid Sultan Salehuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, Shah Alam.

Our first song was ‘Khalifah Of Allah’.

Our third song was ‘Alhamdulillah’ and then we sang ‘Khalifah Of Allah’ song again.

Anyway it is noisy because of the sound of the blower of the “air stage’.

The stage’s roof needs the blower to blow in air because it is like a big, big balloon.

My father promised me to try to upload a better video with a better sound and a better quality picture soon.

The name of this song is ‘Animals Love to Hear Quran’.

Please click here to watch the ‘Our Nasheed Performance On You Tube-Part 1‘.

I’ll post the third part of the performance video soon.

I love to perform on stage 🙂

By the way, I made the sound of a bird at the end of the song.
