Thank You To Jackie And WordPress

I want to thank Jackie from WordPress for returning my blog, Ahmad Ali Karim’s Weblog that was deactivated for 3 days. I am a serious blogger and I have tried to work very hard to make my blog a successful site. On February 2, 2013, I was shocked to see a malware alert on my blog.

I was really upset and scared and I really did not know what to do. With the help of my family members, our friends and my wonderful blogger friends, we tried to solve the problem but it only got worse. Then my blog was blocked and I could not write any new post which made me really, really sad.

Again my the help of my family I tried to solve the problem but it only got worse until my blog was deactivated and I could not even read my post anymore. I was very, very sad because I was so scared that I might lost all the posts that I wrote since the past five years.

My blog means so much to me because it is a compilation of my works and ideas since I started blogging when I was five years old and how I learn to be a better writer year after year; and it is a part of my learning and growing up process. I wrote about what is important to me including good values and world news that I think important and that I want to keep for my future references.

Then Jackie wrote to us and explained that my blog was deactivated due to the US law, and told us that WordPress found out about my age when they tried to help me with my problems. My parents and I did not know that in accordance with US law and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, WordPress needs parental notification in order to allow me to have my own website on because I am child under thirteen years old. My blog was available just a short time after my father wrote to WordPress, granting his permission for me to blog on WordPress.com..

Now I am really thankful and happy to get back my blog and to be able to write new posts. I want to thank Jackie and WordPress for being very supportive and I am very glad that I blog on WordPress.  But the malware alert in Google Chrome is still not yet solved. I’m going to follow Jackie’s advice to contact Google and try to solve this problem and I hope that my problems will be solved as soon as possible.

I need to work harder now to get the traffic back to my blog as it used to be before these problems started a month ago. Meanwhile, I’m going to try the custom design and with that I’ll be able to learn lots of interesting things about blog designing. I’m looking forward to learn CSS coding to design my blog and I hope that I can make my blog a better site.

Congratulations WordPress for protecting the children’s right and privacy by enforcing the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and for being very supportive to kid bloggers like me and thanks to Jackie for being so wonderful to me.

A Wonderful House By The Beach

At the gate infront of Ki Hassan's house. From the left is my big sisters Kaman, Kashah, my mother, nenek, me, Ki Hassan and my sister Kafah.

Last two weeks, I went to Ki Hassan’s house.

Enjoying ourselves at Ki Hassan's house.

Ki Hassan’s name is Hassan A. Karim.

He is my grandfather’s cousin.

Ki Hassan is a good man.

He teaches the students around the area for free.

He is also a blogger, please click here for his blog >>>http://almanar-nuri.blogspot.com/<<<

His house is by the beach in Mengabang Telipot, near Kuala Terengganu.

We played in the large backyard facing the beach.

Pretending going home from the camp.
From the front is Kashah, me and Kafah.

The drink was very delicious and I ate my favorite snack, ‘kerepek bawang’.

I really had a wonderful time over there.

A Map of Trengganu Book Signing At Borders – In Pictures

I wish to write a wonderful book like Uncle Hulaimi and sign a copy of my book for him.

On Sunday, I went to the Borders at the Gardens for another ‘AMoT Book Signing’ event.

This is the last signing event as Uncle Hulaimi is going back to London in a few more days.

My mother says, this could be a start of a ‘ggocoh’ and even a ‘ggomo’ (AMoT page 250,251).

I met a lot of great writers and bloggers at the event.

Aunty Asma who was the chef for AMoT’s book launch at RA Fine Arts Gallery was also there with her family.

It is very nice to meet Pak Samad, the great writer again.

I was sitting with another popular blogger, Pok Ku Bustaman who taught me the meaning of a Trengganuspeak word, 'rang'.

A lot of Uncle Hulaimi’s good friends and family members were there.

And everybody had a good time 🙂

And thank you Borders for the very delicious Terengganu food from the ‘Wau Penyu’.

There were tasty pulut lepa, akok, beleda(jelly), jjepuk pisang (banana balls) and keropok lekor.

The akok was especially ordered from the palace!

I enjoyed kerepok lekor the best 🙂

Please click here for ‘Kerepok Lekor Recipe In Photos’.

A Map of Trengganu Book Signing

 

Uncle Hulaimi's fans listening to his speech at the event. I was sitting third from right in the front row.

Just now I went to the book signing of  ‘A Map of Trengganu’ ( AMoT ).

It was held in the MPH Bookstore, Mid Valley, KL.

We met some bloggers and some of my parent’s Terengganu friends.

Uncle Hulaimi’s teacher, Mr. Soh Kim Yew was also there with Aunty Dinah Soh and Aunty Soh Lay Choo.

From right is my mother, Mr. Soh Kim Yew, Aunty Soh Lay Choo and Aunty Dinah Soh.

AMoT  was written by Wan Ahmad Hulaimi or Awang Goneng.

He gave a nice speech and he talked about how to write books.

His speech was in English and not in Trengganuspeak 🙂

I was listening to Uncle Hulaimi's speech. From the right is Pok Ku Bustaman (a popular Terengganu blogger), my big sister Kaman, Kafah, me, my mother and somebody from the press (I guess).

I am happy that he also mentioned my name to the audience as ‘his friend, Che Ali the blogger’.

Uncle Hulaimi is the only person who calls me ‘Che Ali’ :mrgreen:

Some people at the event thought my name is really Che Ali 😆

Before we go home, we waited for Uncle Hulaimi to sign the books that we have to deliver.

My big sister Kashah(R), Kaman and me with Uncle Hulaimi who was busy signing the books.

I feel so happy that I met Uncle Hulaimi, Uncle A. Samad Said, Aunty Zaharah and other friends of my parent’s 😀

Why I Want An i Pad :)

phoneejwqbdnhujf

My father showed me a You Tube by Steve Jobs about the i Pad by Apple.

It looks interesting and looks like a toy.

We can read a book, watch movie, surf the internet, look at photo album and much more.

We don’t need a mouse but use our fingers to scroll.

We can turn it around and around 🙄

That looks really fun.

We can also write new posts for our blogs using i Pad.

It is light, so it is easy to be carried everywhere 😉

It is easy to carry an i Pad when we travel 😯

i Pad is good for a blogger 🙂

I wish somebody can give me an i Pad 🙂

I think Steve Jobs is a great man.

Meeting Uncle Awang Goneng

Today I went to A&W in KLCC to meet Uncle Awang Goneng.


His real name is Wan Ahmad Hulaimi.

Uncle Awang Goneng is a great writer.

He is also a famous blogger.

His blog is very popular.

The book ‘Growing Up In Trengganu’ is from the blog.

His blog is http://kecek-kecek.blogspot.com/.

Uncle Awang Goneng lives in London.

I wonder why Uncle Awang Goneng lives in London?

Uncle Awang Goneng will go back to London at the end of January.

By the way I met Pak Cik Saidi Yahya too 🙂

My father, Pak Cik Saidi and Uncle Awang Goneng are from Terengganu.

They spoke English and ‘Trengganuspeak’.

I only understand some words in ‘Trengganuspeak’ 🙂

I am very happy to meet them today.

Going Back To Terengganu Again

Tomorrow I am going back to Kuala Terengganu.

I think  we’ll have lunch in Kemaman again.

The restaurant is near Aunty Moon’s house.

They sell tasty chicken rice.

Uncle Azahar saw us there the last time we went home to Kuala Terengganu.

But I did not see Uncle Azahar because I don’t know that he was there too.

I hope I can meet Uncle Azahar soon.

I met Tok Cu Bee, Aunty Emy and Uncle Syed Zaid at a bloggers meeting on Saturday 🙂

Can I meet Uncle Azahar at the nasi ayam restaurant tomorrow?

I hope there will be no water problems at Petronas Mountain Station 🙂
