Meeting Uncle Adnan Othman

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.

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.

Michael Jackson Died

Micheal Jackson was the ‘King Of Pop’.

He was a very, very popular singer.

He was born in 1958 and died today in Los Angeles, California.

He collapsed and was taken to UCLA Medical Center.

Today I watched Michael Jackson’s video clip, ‘Thriller’ on You Tube.

I also saw Michael Jackson singing ‘Billie Jean’ on You Tube.

He wore one white glove, a glittering black jacket, a black magician hat, a pair of new black shoes and a pair of white socks.

He sang and danced and the audience sang and danced too.

He did his moonwalk and that was very nice.

Someone hold a sign board saying ‘King Of Pop’.

He changed his face to a woman’s face.

Michael Jackson broke down musical and cultural barriers his entire life.

Michael Jackson reportedly has converted to Islam and changed his name to Mikaeel.

His friends Phillip Bubal (Idris Phillips) and David Whamsby (Dawud Whamsby Ali) were with him at that time.
