Letter from Kakak and Abang Leicester

Congratulations  AG for the bequest of another book to our youngsters.

I have not had a chance to read it but here's a review.

We're very sorry we can't share your day this week-end at Tuk Din but we are over here rooting for you over there in London and in KL when you have the 'proper' Launch.   Just remember us when you're tucking into Sambal Ikan Bilis and Petai. 

It's very heartening to find a Malay who has documented so lovingly the Trengganu Malays'  way of life and purpose, of a time that some of us in modern Malaya  have chosen to forget and discard.

It's an admirable mission accomplished by a gentle Malay gentleman.

For you and Zaharah here's a song from the old days, from the old thing here to celebrate your journey.

This is a quiz for Zaharah who got her KiaT over numbers and dates.


And from the Scotsman to the T-man , LANG MAY YOUR LUM REEK!

Salam and love from Darby and Joan.

Mm, Looking at picture of you and Zaharah.. somehow remind me of the French Government's ban on Burqa..
just to pull your leg ;)).
Being Trengganu Malay.. I am also very proud of that T-man.. kira tumpang gembiralah atas kejayaan beliau.. dengan GUIT and AMOT..

Thank you Wan Sharif,

Wish there are also J-man, M-man, NS-man, S-man etc to match the T-man, or maybe I haven't had the privilege.

oh my God!!! How come I missed this? Thanks so much kakak Leceister - we missed you and its all my fault! When i had the courage to tell AG, he was visibly upset and I had to take refuge at Tuk Din's. We had a great time. Hulaimi is now back in Gombak and Insyaallah - will be there too soon. will see you when we get back okay ? Salam to abang Leceister!
