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.
