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".

The new look of Sultan Alauddin of Melaka's tomb

Next we went to Kampung Raja, Pagoh where lies the tomb of ruler of Melaka known as Sultan Alauddin Riayat Shah (ruled 1477-1488 AD).

The last time we paid visit was about half a year ago.

This time we noticed a very good change.

The inscriptions on the tombs made in the Arabic language and writing have been coloured gold making it easier to read and recognise.

Please refer and compare with the pictures shown in the article Batu-batu nesan di makam Sultan Alauddin Melaka (Tombstones at the tomb of Sultan Alauddin of Melaka) made in the blogspot SENI LAMA MELAYU (MALAY OLDEN ART) 5 months ago.

The 4 tombstone and each 2 faces and 2 sides of every tombstone are presented here exactly in the same order as in the old article for easy reference.

Note: 3 am 19 September 2011. I've just noticed I've only put pictures from 3 tombstones instead of 4 as it should be. So below are the pictures from the 4th tombstone ya. Cheers! :]

Salam Abg Radzi,

Gambar nesan ke-2 terakhir tu adalah ayat Kursi dari mula:
Allahu La ilaha illa Huwal Hayyul Qayyum ...sehingga Ya' lamu ma baina ..
-menurut pembacaan penglihatan saya, salah silpa mohon ampun maaf-

gambar yang ke empat terakhir pula adalah sambungan dari gambar kedua terakhir sehingga tamat ayat kursi. Wallahu A'lam.

Wassalam. Mekasih. Memang ada nampak macam Ayat Kursi tapi tak tahu le nak cakap. Ni kena tunggu pakar khat bersuara ni.

Apapun baru saya sedar saya cuma meletakkan gambar dari 3 buah batu nesan sahaja (setiap nesan ada muka depan, muka belakang dan pandangan sisi kiri dan kanan). Kena tambah lagi satu set gambar. Adapun aturan yang digunakan serupa seperti pernah disuakan pada artikel ini... http://artmelayu.blogspot.com/2011/04/batu-batu-nesan-di-makam-sultan.html

OK. Tambah gambar ni... :]
