Reading

As everyone can see, I am slacking in blogging.. :D

New Zealand holiday post : not done
Singapore trip : not blogged
Various outings with high school friends : not blogged

That's not gonna change anytime soon though. hehehe..

Been trying to read more since I came back but the rate of buying books has far exceeded the rate of reading those books. A new book I just bought is "What your Teacher Didn't Tell You, The Annexe Lectures Vol. 1" which is basically a compilation of lectures that Farish A. Noor delivered in Central Market. I would have loved to be in the audience.

I'm still half way through the book but it's a really interesting read. To simply put it, the book is about the history of our nation and how what happened in the past shaped the country we now live it. It's refreshing to see it from this point of view.

I would encourage anyone who loves or hates Malaysia to read it. :D

As most of my friends would know, I'm working as an industrial trainee in an electronics firm. And work can sometimes get a bit slow and we interns are left with a lot of time on our hands. :D

I've just discovered a wonderful thing on the internet. It's called Read Print. It's quite addictive (for reading enthusiasts). I would have read tonnes of books by the end of my training. XD

Lao Tzu

“A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.”


Read this quote in a book of quotes I saw in borders. Lao Tzu's philosophy is interesting and practical. Am gonna read up about it. ^^

Pretty words

"You are beautiful...when you let friends have their space, when you believe, when you laugh, or are moved to tears, when you let it just roll right off your back, when you talk about your dreams, when you help a turtle across the road, when you try to do the right thing even when it comes out wrong, when you love."
