food for the soul (?!)

was at silverfish books today. had the honour of being served by raman himself. i felt so small, so much so i wanted to cry. no, he was real nice + friendly + helpful + patient. it's just that at 27 and a bit, i felt like i still have a long way to go + that triggered the alarms to ring. gulp!

oh! farish a noor will be launching his website @ silverfish books on saturday 28th october 2006 at 5:30 pm. i've attended his talks before + he's real articulate, one eloquent speaker, i immediately fell in love with him. unfortunately he's happily married. dan-g! :op

i'm having the unbearable lightness of being - milan kundera, generation: a collection of contemporary malaysian ideas - amir muhammad, kam raslan + sheryll stothard + the lawful + the prohibited in islam - yusuf al-qaradawi for my hari raya feast.

Been planning to read Unbearable Lightness, tell me if it's good. Lawful and Prohibited handy as a reference. Enjoy!

i've finished reading the unbearable lightness of being, i wish i read the book earlier. it's about love, infedility ... i like his philosophical speculations explaining the behaviours.

baca lah!


i've been reading v.s. naipaul, anita desai, salman rushdie, ian mcewan, haruki murakami, joseph stiglitz a lot + one or two works by other writers but milan kundera, this is my first taste.

i like his approach, he's a genius! i'll have identity next on my reading list.

selamat hari raya to you too!


the office is closed til sunday but i'm at work. :op

i'll do a gibberish update soon!
