Yesterday I attended the book launch of ‘Minda Tertawan‘ at the Rumah Universiti, Universiti Malaya in Kuala Lumpur.
The book was written by YM Raja Ahmad Aminullah.
YM Uncle Raja Ahmad is the owner of RA Fine Arts.
‘Minda Tertawan‘ is a political book, written in Bahasa Malaysia.
The book was launched by Dato’ Baharuddin Zainal (Baha Zain).
There was also a discussion session about the book by:
Prof. Dr. Zakaria Ali (Prof. Sejarah Seni, UPSI)
Mr. Tan Sei Hon (writer and curator)
Prof. Dr. Syed Husin Ali (senator and a former president of Persatuan Sains Sosial)
Mr. U-Wei Hj. Shaari (film maker).
The moderator was Uncle Nizal Mohammad from TV Al-Hijrah.
A lot of people attended the program.
I met Uncle Jih (Uncle Nasir Zihni who wrote a comment in the book), Uncle Nizal Mohammad, National Laurette Uncle A. Samad Said, Aunty Dr. Siti Zainon Ismail (an artist, poet and writer who wrote a special poem for my big sister Kaman), Tan Sri Ramli Ngah Talib (a politician), Uncle Prof. Dr. Wan Ariffin Wan Abdullah (our relative from Terengganu) and a lot of other people.
Congratulations to Uncle Raja Ahmad for the launch of ‘Minda Tertawan‘ and thank you inviting us and giving us the chance to sellUncle Awang Goneng‘s books, ‘ A Map of Trengganu‘ and ‘Growing Up in Trengganu‘.
It is nice to attend Uncle Raja Ahmad’s events because I can meet a lot of great writers, poets, artists and wonderful people.
