Big Bad Wolf 2020 – Malaysia’s Largest Book Sale Goes Online

Since 2009, Malaysian bibliophiles and book hoarders have made their annual pilgrimage to the Big Bad Wolf Sale, which is held every year around Feb/Mac or Nov/Dec and is touted as the largest book sale in the region. The last time I went in 2018, they had over 3 million titles! Due to the pandemic, many events have had to be cancelled – so the … Continue reading Big Bad Wolf 2020 – Malaysia’s Largest Book Sale Goes Online

My Mini Library

Hey guys! It’s Day 6 of the Restricted Movement Order in Malaysia. Officially, there are 8 more days to go –  but looking at the upward trend of cases, an extension might be imminent. 😦 I know I am luckier than most in that I have enough savings to tide me over should the RMO be prolonged, but there are many out there such as … Continue reading My Mini Library

30-Day Writing Challenge : Day 15 – One Thing You Never Learned

15. One Thing You Never Learned  I’ve never learned how to swim properly. I can ‘move’ from one end of the pool to another (or more like half the pool), but I never learned how to float. So if I was in a place where my feet don’t touch the ground, I’d probably drown. When I was a little girl, my dad attempted to teach … Continue reading 30-Day Writing Challenge : Day 15 – One Thing You Never Learned

30-Day Writing Challenge: Day 14 – The Weirdest Thing About Your Family

14. The Weirdest Thing About Your Family  Hey guys! Sorry for missing out on entry 14 – got home late last night and was just too tired to write.

I think every family is dysfunctional / has its own quirks, … Continue reading 30-Day Writing Challenge: Day 14 – The Weirdest Thing About Your Family

30-Day Writing Challenge Day 13 : A Memorable Stranger

13. A Memorable Stranger stranger /ˈstreɪn(d)ʒə/ noun a person whom one does not know or with whom one is not familiar. It was many years ago when I first watched Wong Fu Production’s Youtube short, Strangers Again which chronicles the stages of a relationship.

30-Day Writing Challenge: Day 12 – Friendships

12. Friendships  Friendships come easy to some people. It’s fascinating how some people just have the gift of the gab for approaching complete strangers and somehow leaving with numbers, smiles and promises to catch up over drinks someday. I, on the other hand, have struggled with this since high school. Being bullied, ostracised and made to feel like I never belonged, I am now somewhat … Continue reading 30-Day Writing Challenge: Day 12 – Friendships

30-Day Writing Challenge – Day 11: An Adventure In The Kitchen

11. An Adventure In The Kitchen First things first: I am not much of a cook. When I was younger, my mother ruled the kitchen with an iron-fist, and would often shoo me out because I wasn’t cutting something right or wasn’t quick enough to take the pan off the heat, etc. Over the years, my interest waned, and while she did eventually try to … Continue reading 30-Day Writing Challenge – Day 11: An Adventure In The Kitchen

30-Day Writing Challenge : Day 10 – Traffic

10. Traffic  Like many major cities in Southeast Asia, traffic in Kuala Lumpur is pretty bad. The distance between my home and the office is about 20 kilometres, and I spend about an hour getting to work, and 1.5 hours to get home. This will stretch to two hours when it rains, or if it’s a Friday evening. Traffic congestion has been a long standing … Continue reading 30-Day Writing Challenge : Day 10 – Traffic
