Product Description:

Growing Up in Trengganu started life as the much-celebrated blog of Awang Goneng (the pseudonym of Malaysias most-respected journalist in London, Wan Hulaimi) until it was found to be too good to exist only in cyberspace. Through a collection of memories retold in glorious colour, he evokes the pleasures of a kampung childhood for the benefit of new generations brought up in air-conditioned condominiums. Listen to the azan call to prayer from the surau of Haji Mat Kerinci, order satay with toast for breakfast, meet notables such as Tun Long the laundry man and Cik Wook Payong Lch, whose umbrella turned inside-out in a storm, and relive the pleasure of hearing the rain hammer down on a corrugated iron roof while reading the Beano and eating kueh putu.

Sultans, sweetmeat sellers and shopkeepers all act as springboards as you meander through Trengganu history, and by the end of this book you will have painlessly mastered the Trengganuspeak that foils even fellow Malaysians.

Rating: 3 out of 5

I would say this is really a good read. It is so funny and I couldn't stop laughing-literally (I first read it in the book store, imagine laughing at the book). I, myself raised in terengganu and everything in the book, I can relate. I don't know though, if one doesn't understand terengganu as in the languange, will find it funny.
