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.

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.
