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?"

ISBN 978-983-42031-2-2, November 2007

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".

Interesting number this is...

OK. This is the number at the hits counter when I entered this blogspot just under a minute ago. In terms of how big the number is, it might not be that great. For information this is the first blogspot I started among three more than two years ago. While my second blogspot, the Malay-language CATATAN SI MERAH SILU have already passed 173,000 hits and my third, the bi-lingual SENI LAMA MELAYU (MALAY OLDEN ART) is going to 96,000 at the last count, this one is still languishing in the 40,000 + mark.

Never mind. I find it amusing that I entered the blogspot just under a minute ago to make the 44,444th hit. Otherwise I could have missed the number as despite its low-traffic, it is still often visited and that's enough to move the numbers quite a bit. And I just happened to come in when the counter moved to such a symmetrical number, in fact 5 identical numbers. Hope this augurs well for the future. Cheers! :]

p/s: Later, I was looking for some pictures of Janda Baik when I came across this old article titled My latest trip to Janda Baik and the number 22222! Then I realised, it was written in the same mold as this... except there's a number of pictures. Do have a look...

Wassalam Fif. Just one of my obssessions. So you got the books already?
By the way I'm scheduled to attend a function which includes the launching of my latest book, a coffee-table book with a local publisher and Dewan Bahasa Pustaka involved. The book is written and directed by me while the pictures were taken by Atok @ Shamsul Yunos, my room-mate at 51 C but from one of the law classes.
It should start at 2pm, April 20th at Pesta Buku Kuala Lumpur 2009 at the PWTC. I haven't got all the details but feel free to drop by. I heard Najib would officiate it. Cheers! :]
