Random picture of pizza. Cheese is nice.

I realize I usually rarely elaborate more on life; perhaps I think the photos will suffice. At any rate, in case it interests you, I have finally finished reading The Diary of Anne Frank and Princess: A True Story of Life Behind The Veil; both non-fictions and depicting the life of real women. Anne Frank's diaries was translated into English - the form I read it - and even then it was almost as if I was looking through a window in her life at that particular time. It was so vivid, from rotten potatoes to having to be silent all the time. Princess - depicts the life of "Sultana" (alias), an Arabic princess of royal descendant and her oppresive life because she was born a female - chosen marriages, initial discouragement from education (asides the Koran), polygamy - this is told based on secret diaries and manuscripts given to an author.

It is always interesting to read stories and voices of people who write it based on their own experiences as you carry out a new perception of culture; war; love; religion, and so forth, in their world. So you should read autobiographical books which is always the best source of truth and clarity.

  4. valencia - thank you! I love the sea here in Malaysia. But it's hard to find areas that are not polluted =X most of the seas are dirty, unless you head off to the islands where it's tropical paradise. You should come to Malaysia one day!

    @rosie - it is a gorgeous area, but signs of industrialization are starting to creep up and the sad thing is, it is just a matter of time before it is all destroyed in the name of "modernization" and "urbanization" =( hopefully they won't get to this part of my kampung.

    @carolyn - the camera is nikon d3000 and thanks for the compliment. it's quite a good camera for amateur photographers like me, but not for professional use. ahh i am so jealous of people with those huge ass cameras that costs like RM 12,000 ++.

Thank you for your comment :) I love any opinions, feedback, that sort of things. If it is about food, then just come to Malaysia and experience it yourself!
