agak2 nya, selain dalam wiki dan dalam kamus, siapa pernah guna dalam tulisan atau pertuturan akan perkataan "--phobia = fear of no. 666", hendak menyebut nya pun amat menyulitkan, apa lagi untuk menulisnya. (spt dalam "easy said than written (instead of done)"). apa-akal lah ada kemudahan untuk dibuat salin-tampal, kalau nak tulis pasal semua itu, tentu penat juga.
Dalam pada itu, Mr K.A itu pun cikgu/pensyarah Bahasa Inggeris jugakah? Beliau ada blog tersendiri?
Terimakasih.. sangat bermaklumat ruangan "journal of a sensei".
