I met the author of Growing Up in Terengganu (GUIT), Awang Goneng aka W.A.Hulaimi yesterday at Kinokinuya KLCC.Ah, finally, I met the witty man himself and managed to get my two copies of GUIT signed by him.
I read GUIT with envy. How I wish he could write Growing Up in Pahang (GUIP) instead. By all means, every Terengganu citizen must have this wonderfully written piece.
He and his GUIT reminded me very much of Yorkshire's famous son, James Herriot aka country vet Mr. Alf Wight who wrote such classics, All Creatures Great and Small and All Things Wise and Wonderful.
