Nilaicitra’12

On Thursday, March 22, 2012, I went to Galeri Shah Alam for the UNISEL’s Nilaicitra’12

My photo at the Galeri Shah Alam after the opening ceremony of Nilaicitra'12.

Nilaicitra means ‘value of image’.

It exhibited the final projects of UNISEL Art And Design’s students.

The program was officiated by Datin Paduka Shuhaimi Baba of Pesona Pictures Sdn. Bhd.

Uncle Adnan Othman also joined us to the program.

Uncle Adnan Othman(R) was chatting with my father after the event.

We visited the exhibition halls and saw lots of beautiful photographs, digitally drawn pictures and other beautiful stuff.

We visited Abang Ibrahim’s booth and saw the photos that he took at our house

This photo was snapped by Uncle Ibrahim

It was very nice to meet Uncle Prof. Dato’ Raja Zahabuddin, Atuk Prof. Hashim and Uncle Ibrahim Bujal again.

The food that they served was very delicious.

I really enjoyed the my time over there.

Meeting Uncle Adnan Othman

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.
