Launching of Gemuruh Alam at RA Fine Arts Gallery


On 7 June 2008 (Saturday), I attend a launching of Mustapa Haji Ibrahim’s poetry book ‘Gemuruh Alam’ at RA Fine Arts Gallery owned by YM Raja Ahmad Aminullah. The book was launched by Pak A. Samad Said (Sasterawan Negara/ National Laureate). Among others, the occasion had introduced me to ‘Anak Alam’ group and ‘Asas 50’.

I was really impressed by Prof Rahman Shaari’s style of reading sajak. I was never interested in ‘sajak’ ( a type of Malay poem) until the day I heard Pak Samad recite one of his sajaks at RA Fine Arts Gallery on 19 January 2008. It really open my eyes to the beauty of poetry. I was honoured to speak to Pak Samad when he gave good remarks on my reading (please click here).

Thank you Pak Engku Raja Ahmad for giving me the chance to experience the wonderful world of literature and art.

  1. Dear Hackspot,
    Alhamdullillah. Thank you. It was really wonderful to hear those words from someone as great as Pak Samad and the fact that he remembered me made me even happier.
