My dear Ayoh Wang Hulaimi aka Awang Goneng who lives in London, is in town, and he's just launched his second book - A Map of Trengganu last week. Check out his blog - Kecek-kecek - (it's on my list of fav reads - blogroll) to know him better.
We missed Uncle AG's book signing at MPH MidValley on Saturday so we thought we'd better not miss this one. Anyway, the venue would be on our way home from attending Aunty Anoi's wedding. And I get to be pawpawrazzi for a change.....teeheehee!
Event: A Celebration of A Map of Trengganu
Venue: RA Fine Art, Solaris Dutamas (it's an art gallery)
|First things first: An autographed copy for Angelina. That RM33 was well spent, Mama.|
|Uncle Ishak (the famous Ishak Nengah) and Aunty KT (the famous Zaharah Othman of BBC London aka Mrs Awang Goneng) were the master and mistress of ceremony for the event.|
|Uncle AG delivering his speech - among others: blogging frees the mind from the burden of not writing down what's in his mind for years, and that's how he started writing his first book - Growing Up in Trengganu (available from Amazon).|
|The crowd - friends and family of Uncle AG, plus some members of the Press, plus some blogger friends.|
|An audience following Uncle AG's reading of a passage from his book.|
|Aaahhh....typical Malaysian function - must have food!|
|And more food - of the traditional Trengganu variety.|
|Uncle AG had to give a press conference afterwards....|
Poor chap had to earn his afternoon tea (he doesn't drink coffee, he says)!
Angelina's Note: Ayoh Wang, enjoy your short sojourn in Malaysia, mate! purrr....meow!
