This blogspot is a medium to share my thoughts and adventures apart from promoting my books. Below are the books which have been written or authored and published by myself.


"Berpetualang ke Aceh: Mencari Diri dan Erti".

ISBN 983-42031-0-1, Jun 2006


"Berpetualang ke Aceh: Membela Syiar yang Asal"

ISBN 983-42031-1-x, May 2007


"Berpetualang ke Aceh: Sirih Pulang ke Gagang?"

It is interesting to note that while these books were written in Malay it has gained enough attention to merit being part of the collections of the American Library of Congress and National Library of Australia. Look here and here.


While the first three books were published by my own company, the fourth titled "Rumah Azan" was published in April 2009 by a company called Karnadya with the help of the Malaysian national literary body Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka. It features beautiful pictures along with stories behind selected mosques which could be related to the history of Islam and the Malays alongside the formation of the Malaysian nation. Look at the article A collaboration of old collegemates - the book "Rumah Azan".


My fifth book "Ahlul Bait (Family) of Rasulullah SAW and Malay Sultanates", an English translation and adaptation of the Malay book "Ahlul Bait (Keluarga) Rasulullah SAW dan Kesultanan Melayu" authored by Hj Muzaffar Mohamad and Tun Suzana Othman was published early 2010. Look here... My 5th book is out! Ahlul Bait (Family) of Rasulullah SAW and the Malay Sultanates... . For more information check out my Malay blogspot CATATAN SI MERAH SILU.



Like my fourth book "Rumah Azan", the sixth book "Kereta Api Menuju Destinasi" is also a coffee-table book which is published by the company Karnadya with the cooperation of Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka (the main Malay literary body in Malaysia). Coming out January 2011 it features pictures and stories on the adventure travelling by train to all of Peninsular Malaysia along with the interesting places which could be reached this way.


My seventh book "Jejak keluarga Yakin : Satu sketsa sejarah" in turn is a coffee-table book which is written, editted, designed and has pictures taken by me. Coming out of the factory October 2011, this book which combines family history with history of places such as Singapura, Johor, Batu Pahat, Muar and in fact the history of the island of Java and England has been reviewed with me interviewed live in the program Selamat Pagi Malaysia at RTM1. Look at the article Siaran langsung ulasan buku "Jejak keluarga Yakin : Satu sketsa sejarah" dan temu ramah di Selamat Pagi Malaysia. Some selected contents have been featured in Sneak peek "Jejak keluarga Yakin : Satu sketsa sejarah".

Confluence of 3 rivers in Teluk Intan...

God lord... I feel so tired but I just got to let this go off my system. Here goes...


After Lumut, I went to the place where my father was born at which is in Teluk Intan 60km south-east. Among the places visited there is part of the Perak river besides Kampung Terengganu east of town. In the picture is the Bidor river flanking the kampung (village)...


The Bidor river runs from as far as the town of Bidor over 40km away south-east of Teluk Intan...


Its waters merged into the mighty Perak river at this point... The Perak river on the middle of this picture, part of the Bidor river estuary to the right...


Part of Kampung Terengganu west to where I was standing at...


Look to the east slightly to the north and you can see the mouth of the much smaller river Tungku while the Bidor river on the right runs into the Perak river. So you could say here is the confluence of 3 rivers...


And finally a look at the bend of Perak river going inland northwards to Kampung Gajah some 20km away. Both the Tungku and Bidor rivers are on the right outside this picture. Ends! :]

Rasanya MS patut ambik gambar sungai di kampung durian sebatang di depan kedai2 cina lama (tak pasti ada lagi ke tak kedai ni), kerana disitu lah tempat bahtera sultan mendarat ataupun bertolak untuk ke beting bras basah.

Kedai2 Cina tak da dah... Yang ada tokong Cina tapi kat dalam tokong tu ada gambar "Latuk Melayu"...
Depan tokong tu ada pokok Jejawi besar yang banyak akar, ada kedai apa entah sambung ngan pokok tu lepas tu depan sikit ada warung... Ada singboard tulis Jalan Mak Intan...
Kat tepi sungai ada jeti, ada signboard UMNO Kampung Durian Sebatang
