...world's booklovers' day...

today is world's booklovers' day!

i'm blessed that i am very well literate at a young age...reading has always been a passion to me...mama was very supportive - buying books for me at every occasions...being a good student - i always ended up receiving books as gifts during the annual 'Majlis Penyampaian Hadiah'...

...my Fun-N-Nuf 'Maya' dragonfly bookmark...

during my childhood times, i read Enid Blyton's Secret Seven and Famous Five, the Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew's and the girls boarding school series...i also read many of the Kelab Buku Kenari publications...

my siblings and me also enjoys comics...there are 3 types: 1)soft-paper chinese translated comics (i.e. Wira Pedang Sakti,etc...) 2)hard-cover translated comics (i.e. Mutiara Naga, Johan Bolasepak, Dr Slump, Doraemon, Sailormoon,TMNT,etc...) 3)english comics (i.e. Archie's comics and Marvel series)...these comics are just great!

apart from that, mama also ensures that we get monthly children's magazines as reading materials...these includes KAWAN, Kuntum, Bambino, Dewan Pelajar, Bintang Kecil, MICKEY...

mama dislike us buying Ujang or Gila-gila...but as i recall, comparing the jokes portrayed during the 90's era with current publications - the jokes last time are not lame...i enjoyed reading them...

as for entertainment news and gossips, URTV was good at some time before...i used to buy and read them...i even bought the controversial Mangga magazines sometimes...

moving on to SSP, my reading hobby continued...during this time, i read Sweet Valley High's, R.L. Stine's, Christopher Pike's...monthly magazines includes Remaja, LIME, Galaxie, Dewan Siswa and Mastika...

when i was in UTP during my undergraduate studies, i read Judith McNaught's and Sidney Sheldon's...i also read Harry Potter series...monthly magazines includes Cleo, Reader's Digest and Remaja...

now, it's even more exciting as i am able to spare some money aside to spend on books...back in the olden days, i don't own the books i read...i used to rent them from friends and Novelhut...
nowadays, my reading preference have become broader...i like Cecelia Ahern's, Danielle Steel's, Jodi Picoult's, Nicholas Spark's, Khaled Hosseini's, Adibah Amin's, Lydia Teh's...i read all genres and i especially like to read situational short stories...at the moment, i've just finished reading Tangled Emotions by Bernice Narayanan...currently, i am reading Lovers and Strangers Revisited by Robert Raymer and Mouse Clutching Winter Melon by Kuan Guat Choo...

...books i am reading now...
enough about books...to fellow booklovers - happy reading forever!

ermmm...today, i spent most of my time watching several beijing olympic events...i started early in the morning by watching the weighlifting women 48kg category for both snatch and clean & jerk...China took gold medals for both...

during the afternoon till late evening, i chose to watch gymnastic artistic men...again, the host China won gold medal for the Group Category...

and just now, i get to watch a little bit of everything from swimming women/men qualifying heats, football women, boxing, equestrian, beach volleyball men and sculls...this is because my abah enjoys changing channels...

ahh...very well...i'm looking forward of the track events especially 100m - wonder who's gonna be the world's fastest runner...

my other favourite events are rythmic synchronized swimming, diving and gymnastics...

other than beijing olympics, i couldn't be bothered with our political affairs...mainly on upcoming permatang pauh small election and unresolved DSAI's sodomy accusation case...i don't know DSAI personally but i do support Izzah...

for me, there are just too many loopholes...how can the so-called sodomy victim be protected in the rule of law?why is this one sodomy victim so special than the others? (pardon me: i believe that sodomy cases are reported everyday - not only this particular one)and then, suddenly the case are change to 'suka sama suka' incident...in addition, there's also a part where this fellow (the sodomy victim) went to see our Deputy PM - for scholarship?!what nonsense...this is totally illogical...how can ordinary people straight-away can go directly facing the high rank people for such matter?and then, in the sodomy victim's writings (apparently he's afraid to speak up on his own), he had written that his intention was not to put DSAI in shame...what's the point this victim wants to prove?i can't understand...isn't he's putting his family in shame too?and why is it now after so many times already? (this fact is also coming from the victim)...i don't know the truth...however, if DSAI really did it, it's better for the victim to just blackmail him...

i would want to write more but it's not safe, right?i better keep it to myself and pray for the best...may Allah shows the right path...
