The Effect of Her by Gerard Stembridge.

Here’s the thing about reading: There will be a book or two that you won’t enjoy reading. And most people would tell me to stop reading it then and choose another book to read. Well, that’s where the dilemma comes in. I can’t make myself stop a reading a book the moment I start reading…

Hello, Is It Tea You’re Looking For?

Let me tell you something about myself. I used to swear by coffee and I always had to have my cup of coffee in the morning before starting my day. I always had to have that early morning jolt before I could focus on anything. That was then. Lately, however, I’ve been drinking more tea…

A Platform of Knowledge.

It wasn’t too long ago when I discovered the secrets of Tumblr, and found out that there were many others like myself. Avid readers, book lovers, title hoarders, and page turners. Intellectuals who loved the smell of brand new books and sighed with pleasure the moment we set foot into a library or a bookstore….

Feng Shui in the Eyes of the West.

I’ve never been much of a Feng Shui follower, but because of an interview for the position of Research Writer in a Feng Shui-based company yesterday, I was given an assignment of composing my understanding of the introduction of Feng Shui. Also, I have an aunt who is a big fan of the practice, so…

The Idle Mind is Talking.

Do you know what happens when you suddenly stop being busy and productive? Your mind stops being the same. Your body is still active because of the certain activities that require you to be up and about, but your mind becomes idle and you end up shooting blanks. If you’re like me, retrenched and unemployed…

Deadpool; No Holds Barred.

There are many reasons why Malaysians don’t trust nor like our own Censorship Board because they have a habit of censoring and removing the best parts from movies that are deemed to be too offensive for movie-goers, especially those who are not of age. More often than not, these could be the same reasons why…

Trippin’ Down the East Coast.

Every year, for Chinese New Year, my family and relatives would go back to my dad’s hometown in Kuala Lipis, Pahang for the first day and reunion dinner on the first night, followed by a short trip to Fraser’s Hill (also in Pahang). The latter was more of a recent addition to our CNY vacation…

Drama Kings and Queens.

Growing up, I never had the opportunity to watch many television series, despite some of them winning a number of Golden Globes and Oscar awards. I had a curfew to adhere to when I was growing up. Completion of school work and assignments at a certain time, helping out with household chores at a particular…

That Time of the Year Again.

And so begins the cycle of cleaning, decorating, preparing and cooking, visiting, and giving out red packets. Are you looking forward to this? Unless you’re the child waiting to eat and receive red packets, right? What is it about Chinese New Year that gets our panties in a knot anyway? Those who do not celebrate…

Drive with Your Eyes on the Road.

The time has come for the children to get up to mischief again and start monkeying around, and with reason too! As Chinese New Year falls on Monday and Tuesday, Malaysians are looking forward to yet another long weekend. Unfortunately, long weekends mean that many will be on the road either for a long weekend…

Knowing What is Necessary.

Government offices often attract long queues and crowds even more than carnivals and amusement parks. As the offices are only opened on weekdays, everyone will be there to pay their bills, persuade an officer to cancel a service because they don’t want it anymore, or demand for a refund for a bill that was not…

Book Review: The Hopeless Life of Charlie Summers.

Alright, I’m finally done with this. Took me awhile to finish reading, it did, and now I’m two books behind my 2016 Reading Challenge! I’m supposed to finish reading 50 books before the end of the year too. Well, without further ado, here is what I think about the book. My usual routine will begin…

Southpaws, Unite!

I used to think that fairytales were real. I thought that if I looked at other boys hard enough, they would have some sort of royal gentlemanliness in them and I’d try to get their attention. I also used to think that left-handed people were weird. Not weird to the point of being associated with…
