Growing Up in Terengganu













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.

Dr.B, great meeting you. I guess we have fun last Sunday.... and mind you the KinoK Manager is still looking for the person who dared to tamper with their books arrangements.... you wre caught by their camera and now wanted at KinoK. Than you for taking care of Kak Teh & AG after the meeting.

drbubbles said...

Pak Jafflam,

Hahaha..I'll wear clown mask next time going to KinoK.

AG and KTeh are like my 'surrogate parents' already.It is an honour indeed to make sure they are comfortable during their back-home trip.

I already linked your blog to mine.

Kak Teh said...
