A Map of Trengganu

Copies of AMoT. Please place your order now.

‘A Map of Trengganu’ (AMoT) is the latest book written by Uncle Awang Goneng.

It is a sequel to the best seller, ‘Growing Up in Trengganu’ (GUiT).

The book is about the old days in Terengganu, the beautiful town and the people living there long before I was born.

It also talks about the old and historical buildings that had been demolished like the the mosque near my mother’s house and the rows of shop houses in Kedai Payang.

GUiT was launched at Alam Akademik or Kedai Pok Loh Yunang in Kuala Terengganu.

Anyway the building had been demolished.

My father picked up the books from the distributor this morning and had delivered some to the costumers who had placed their order.

Orders had came in even before the book reached KL.

There was an order from New York, USA too.

I do not really understand the book as it has lots of hard words but my big sister is so excited about it and cannot stop reading it.

I am reading AMoT but there are too many hard words for me...

She was smiling and laughing by herself while reading 🙂

I want to keep one copy and wait until I grow up a bit older to enjoy it as my big sister and my parents.

May be Uncle Awang Goneng should write a simpler edition with  larger font for small kids like me :mrgreen:

This book had just came in from Singapore and may not reach the bookstores in KL yet 🙂

Just now I sold a book to Uncle Wan Yusuf after the Friday prayer.

During the ‘Khalifah Dinner And Talk’, I helped to distrubute flyers.

I hope that I can help my father to sell a lot more copies of AMoT and that AMoT will be another best seller like GUiT 🙂

So, please >>>Click Here<<< for information on how to order ‘A Map of Trengganu’

I wish that one day I can write a book too, like Uncle Hulaimi.

This book is fun and very interesting, so please place your order now :mrgreen:

A Map of Trengganu by Awang Goneng.

The sequel to Malaysian bestseller Growing Up in Trenaggnu looks at the terrain of Trengganu, the landmarks that are still standing and those that have fallen to rubble, the winds that bring chill and change to the inhabitants of his coastal town, and people who walked the streets and breathed the air that is laced with dried shrimps, the aroma of röjök, and salt coming in with the spray from the South China Sea.

Khalifah Institute Dinner And Talk

I was enjoying my dinner.

On March 26, 2011 or 21 Rabiulthani 1432, I went to Khalifah Institute‘s ‘Dinner & Talk’.

The event was held at the Dewan Perdana Felda, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The talk was entitled, ‘Do Your Best’, by Bro Idris Tawfiq.

Bro Tawfiq is a British Muslim writer who now lives in Egypt.

[Here is his blog – http://idristawfiq.com/]

This is the second time I met Bro Idris Tawfiq.

I first met him in 2009.

I also met Uncle Ustaz ‘Uthman El-Muhammady, who was one of the guests of honour.

Uncle Ustaz 'Uthman El-Muhammady sits on the left of Bro Idris Tawfiq.

Over there I helped my father to set up the camera and distribute the flyers of a new book, ‘A Map of  Trengganu’ (AMoT).

I was busy helping my father.

I also help the volunteers to pack things up after the program.

A Map of Terengganu is written by Awang Goneng or Uncle Wan Ahmad Hulaimi.

It is a sequel to the best seller, ‘Growing Up in Trengganu’ (GUiT).

I reached home at around 12:48 AM 🙂

I was very tired but I could not sleep until almost 2 AM 😉

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.
