The Launching Of Kelantan Gateway
Kelantan Gateway was launched by YB Dato' Hj. Takiyuddin Bin Hj. Hassan, Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Kerajaan Tempatan, Pelancongan dan Kebudayaan on Saturday 20st June 2009 at 12 noon. The launch was done at Hover Restoren which happened to be the restaurant that Pak Zawi was assigned by Deputy Editor of the Magazine to write about. The short article by Pak Zawi appeared on pages 31 to 33.
So beside the State Government's other magazine Qiadah, Pak Zawi is also contributing to Kelantan Gateway. Hopefully Pak Zawi's children and their children will be proud of Pak Zawi. Hey don't forget Pak Zawi also contributes to Boxxtomoi Magazine, which is Malaysia's first magazine devoted to Tomoi!
This is Restoren Hover located close to Muhibah Cake House in Kota Bharu.

Pak Zawi took his own photographs but was not credited for it. That reminds Pak Zawi to give Bariah Ishak the Deputy Editor a small tounge lashing the next time Pak Zawi meets her.
YB Takiyuddin is seen busy welcoming the guests.
The co owner of Restaurant Hover is busy on the phone. She and her husband helped by their son operated the restaurant and rented out a part of the restaurant to Haji Hussin and Haji Hassan to operate the nasi Minangkabau Hover. Another important tenant of Hover Restaurant is the nasi berlauk Pak Din which sells nasi berlauk from 7.00 AM till 11.00. Due to space constraint, they were edited out from the story.

A copy of the magazine being given away to this young singer. Can anybody identify him?
I will make a post on Restaurant Hover so that readers can read in full the story about it. there is more to it than what was portrayed in the magazine as the space constrain wouldn't allow the full text to be printed, nor the many pictures that Pak Zawi took over two days at the restaurant.
