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'.

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 🙂

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.

My Father’s Uncle Segoked By A Cow

Yesterday morning my father’s uncle was ‘segoked’ by a cow.

‘Segok’ means hit by a cow.

I call my father’s uncle Tok Teh.

Tok Teh was ‘segoked’ by a cow when he tried to take the cow to his orchard.

The cow just had a baby.

The mother cow hit Tok Teh because she thought that Tok Teh wanted to take her baby cow away.

Tok Teh is warded in the Sultanah Nur Zahirah Kuala Terengganu Hospital.

Now I cannot take young coconut from Tok Teh’s house anymore because Tok Teh is in the hospital.

Actually ‘segok’ is Trengganuspeak.
