Ahmad Said Sedia Dijel

Versi Jawi akan menyusul.

Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Kijal, Datuk Seri Ahmad Said sedia dikenakan tindakan ekoran tular gambarnya bertemu Menteri Besar Terengganu, Datuk Seri Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar di kediamannya di Telok Kalong di sini yang dikatakan melanggar Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan (PKP) baru-baru ini.

Bagaimanapun, katanya, beliau meminta supaya tindakan itu hanya dikenakan ke atasnya bukan melibatkan individu lain yang bersamanya ketika itu.

“Saya sanggup masuk jel, kalau itu menjadi satu kesalahan yang tidak boleh ditoleransi dan merupakan satu kesalahan besar.

“Tetapi saya mohon supaya jangan ambil tindakan ke atas anak-anak buah saya yang sedang bekerja untuk mengagihkan barangan keperluan harian kepada rakyat di Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Kijal ketika ini,” katanya.

Beliau berkata, pertemuan bersama Menteri Besar Terengganu itu berlaku secara tidak dirancang.

“Sebelum pertemuan itu saya bersama sukarelawan DUN Kijal bergotong-royong menyiapkan barangan yang akan diagihkan kepada penduduk di kawasan ini.

“Secara kebetulan ketika itu Menteri Besar (Ahmad Samsuri) dalam perjalanan ke Terengganu dan sedang berada di Karak.

“Memandangkan dalam perjalanan sehala, beliau ingin singgah di rumah saya untuk berbincang beberapa perkara melibatkan urusan rakyat yang perlu diselesaikan,” katanya kepada media hari ini.

Beliau berkata, ketibaan Menteri Besar Terengganu menarik perhatian kumpulan sukarelawan yang ketika itu berada di kediamannya.

“Mungkin disebabkan teruja, secara tak sedar semua yang ada di situ ingin merakam gambar sampai terlupa jarak sosial yang perlu dijaga dan tempoh penguatkuasaan PKP yang sedang berlangsung,” katanya.

Dalam pada itu, katanya, seramai 20 sukarelawan kini bekerja bersamanya sejak 15 hari lalu untuk membantu mengagihkan barangan keperluan harian kepada kira-kira 10,000 penduduk di DUN itu.

“Bantuan ini perlu disalurkan segera kalau boleh sebelum puasa ini saya mahu pastikan semua penduduk memperolehnya sebab itulah kita bekerja siang dan malam.

“Aktiviti agihan bantuan dan untuk mendapatkan bekalan ini bukan dibuat secara suka-suka. Ia telah mendapat kebenaran dan dipantau,” katanya.

Beliau berkata, setakat ini seramai 6,391 keluarga di DUN itu telah menerima bantuan keperluan ekoran penularan pandemik koronavirus (Covid-19).

“Setakat ini kita telah menerima sebanyak lapan tan kampit beras lima kilogram, 11 tan gula dan 10 tan tepung gandum. Masih ada pertambahan bekalan barangan lagi.

“Kita masih berusaha untuk mengagihkan bantuan yang berbaki lagi kepada kira-kira 4,000 keluarga,” katanya. -{Sinar Harian]

Photos: Serene Dungun Vs Lively Pasar Malam

A beautiful view of the near the river mouth of Sungai Dungun, Oct. 24, 2017.

Last month, we made a short trip to Dungun; and that was the first time I spent a night in the seaside town.

It is a lovely town, and I really enjoy the beautiful scenery.

I even visited the Pasar Malam, which was big and lively with rows and rows of stalls selling all kinds of food and drinks.

There are even traditional kuih and food that are not sold in Kuala Lumpur!

Left UMNO: Ahmad Said Forgot What He Did To Idris Jusoh

A few hours after he was replaced, Terengganu former Menteri Besar (MB) or Chief Minister, Ahmad Said has officially left UMNO.

It was reported that he left UMNO because he was angry over the matter and wants to still be an MB at least until during the wedding of one of his children this weekend.

I was shocked to hear the news because I never knew he would have the heart to do that.

Ahmad Said has forgotten the history of how he became the MB in 2008.

On 22 March 2008, Ahmad Said took over Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh’s position as the Menteri Besar of Terengganu despite BN just won a big majority in the Terengganu state election under Idris.

In that election, BN won 24 out of 32 state seats, while PAS won the remaining 8 seats compared to BN under Ahmad Said did very badly during the 13th General Election.

It was also reported that Idris received full support of twenty-three of the 24 Barisan Nasional state assemblymen elected and Federal Government.

Idris Jusoh was replaced only because the Sultan of Terengganu wants Ahmad Said to become the MB instead of Idris.

Of course Idris was angry; but did he leave UMNO the way Ahmad Said did?

Not like Ahmad Said, Idris was and is still loyal to UMNO and kept fighting for the party and did a very good job. 

But only hours after Ahmad Said was replaced, he quits UMNO.

What kind of man is he?

Is power and money is all that he could think of?

If Ahmad Said can get another ADUN to join him, BN may lost Terengganu to the opposition but it is good to get rid of leaders with no integrity and with no loyalty to the party before it is too late.

It is time for the Terengganu UMNO to regroup and build a better team under a better leader who will never sell his party for his own agendas.

GE13: “TUMBANG PAKATAN!” – PAS’s Latest War Cry Slogan

During the PRU13 candidate nomination in Marang, Terengganu this morning, PAS supporters grouped together in the middle of the road chanting words of war cry to taunt the Barisan Nasional supporters.

Let us listen to what they say:

I really love this part of their war cry:

Tumbang, Tumbang ! TUMBANG PAKATAN !

That shows how confused PAS supporters are that they even shouted, “TUMBANG PAKATAN!” 🙂

This reminds me of this ‘interesting’ photo during the KL 112:

There can’t be four qiblat in the Merdeka Stadium. So, which direction is the real qiblat? (Photo from Paneh Miang)

So, no wonder today they are chanting for, “TUMBANG PAKATAN” 🙂

That is why we should not vote PAKATAN RAKYAT!

Vote for BARISAN NASIONAL!

Meeting Uncle Cikgu Wan Hassan (My Father’s Teacher)

Yesterday, I met Uncle Cikgu Wan Hassan in Bangsar.

He is from Terengganu.

And he was my father‘s teacher in Sultan Sulaiman Secondary School (SSSS) in Kuala Terengganu.

He used to be my father’s scout teacher

Now he lives in Besut.

His wife, Aunty Cikgu Faridah Mohd Dagang also used to teach in SSSS (1981-1997).  

Now the school’s new name is Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Sultan Sulaiman. 

Anyway we didn’t visit his house, we visited his son’s house :mrgreen:

We ate rice with very tasty fried chicken, chicken percik, curry, ulam (Malaysian salad) and lots of other dishes.

My mother used to study in the school too, so my parents enjoyed talking to their old school teachers and their son. 

Anyway I didn’t enjoy so much being there because there was not much things to do and I do not understand what they were talking about 😉

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.

Collections of beautiful paintings by Uncle Adnan Othman.

The fruit series by Uncle Adnan Othman.

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.

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'.
