Meeting Uncle Awang Goneng

Today I went to A&W in KLCC to meet Uncle Awang Goneng.


His real name is Wan Ahmad Hulaimi.

Uncle Awang Goneng is a great writer.

He is also a famous blogger.

His blog is very popular.

The book ‘Growing Up In Trengganu’ is from the blog.

His blog is http://kecek-kecek.blogspot.com/.

Uncle Awang Goneng lives in London.

I wonder why Uncle Awang Goneng lives in London?

Uncle Awang Goneng will go back to London at the end of January.

By the way I met Pak Cik Saidi Yahya too 🙂

My father, Pak Cik Saidi and Uncle Awang Goneng are from Terengganu.

They spoke English and ‘Trengganuspeak’.

I only understand some words in ‘Trengganuspeak’ 🙂

I am very happy to meet them today.

A Program About The Writing Mind With Awang Goneng

On the 12th August 2009 I went to Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) to attend Awang Goneng‘s workshop about writing.

AG - workshop

Awang Goneng‘s real name is Wan Ahmad Hulaimi bin Mohd Ali.

Uncle  Hulaimi taught us a breathing exercise.

First we stand  up, then take a deep breath and then shake our hands like Michael Jackson.

I also learnt about palindrome.

Palindrome is something  that sounds the same if we read it from the right or the left.

For example, ‘Madam, I’m Adam‘.

But I forgot to ask Uncle Hulaimi if ‘masam’ is a palindrome.

‘Masam’ means sour.

Uncle Hulaimi said that we must  always use a dictionary.

Uncle Hulaimi wrote my name as Mohd Ali but my name is Ahmad Ali 🙂

I think it was because his father’s name  was Mohd Ali.

I enjoyed myself  very much and I am very happy to meet Uncle Hulaimi again.

We sold lots and lots of AG‘s book,’Growing Up In Terenganu‘or ‘GUIT‘ at Alam Akademik Sdn Bhd in Kuala Terengganu.

A Moment With English – Enjoying English

On 3 /5 / 09 I took part in a program at Sekolah Kebangsaan Padang Hiliran (SKPH).

The name of the program was A Moment With English – Enjoying English

The program started at 9:00 AM and ended at 11.20 AM.

I read an article from my blog entitled the Swine Flu.

My big sister Kaman gave a speech about “The Creation Of Universe”.

Kaman also did a book reading.

She read ‘Budu Spell’ from a book ‘Growing Up In Terengganu’ by Awang Goneng.

My big sister Kashah did a story telling about a girl named Jannah.

My big sister Kafah sang a song about butterfly.ali-khalifahsong-skph

We sang two songs.

First was the ‘Khalifah Song’ and the next song was ‘Guantanamera‘.

The ‘Khalifah Song’ is an English song.

Guantanamera’ is a patriotic Spanish song from Cuba.

After the program we ate fried noodle keropok lekor.

The keropok lekor was tasty but the noodle was too spicy.

I met a lot of kakak and abang in SKPH and a lot of teachers too for example the Head Master and Teacher Siti.

All of them were very nice and I enjoyed visiting the school.ali-receive-cert-skph

I am very happy because Kak Syaza and Abang Kimi wrote comments in my blog 😉

I think there will be more programs in SKPH.

I love going to SKPH!
