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