ISBN 983-42031-0-1, Jun 2006

"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".

Video at the tomb of Moyang Salleh, testing...

This is a video taken at the tomb of Moyang Salleh on Sunday 18th May 2008, an important olden personality of the state of Negeri Sembilan, to be exact in the mid 18th Century AD. The same video was uploaded in the latest posting at my Malay language blogspot CATATAN SI MERAH SILU 2 hours ago... But yet after almost one hour taken to load and process the 40 MB AVI format video, I found some problems including much delay in buffering for play when the posting have been published...

Perhaps it's a matter of time before the problem correct itself... Perhaps. But I'm not taking any chance... After all the trouble travelling and making the video, then having to change the format and then cutting it out of the original video (it used to be part of 92 MB AVI file which originated from a 920MB + DVD MPEG video!), I want it to appear right for the blogspot.

So I tried to make another upload... And thus another hour spent for the effort. First, I want to test it by publishing it here... If it fares better, than I'm going to slot this one in to replace the one I posted earlier in CATATAN SI MERAH SILU .

Whatever, it's good to have a video clip here too although in Malay. So apart from for testing, let it make a permanent posting in this blogspot. Here goes nothing... :]

p/s: Yes... I've posted it just about 5 minutes ago and tested the video. It works... Yes... Except there's a slight disalignment between the visuals and the audio, perhaps a result of the video clipping done last night to partition the original much larger video clip. Never mind, as long as it works... Cheers! :]
