I am enjoying Preeta Samarasan “Evening is the Whole Day” on my lovely balcony this morning. Having my coffee and keeping Bangkok’s state of emergency (again!) tucked away, for the moment, at one corner of my mind, to be visited, maybe later today.
Preeta is one amazing writer, and I can relate to her great story because I am Malaysian. Please buy this book, for it is such an interesting and wonderful read. It’s a story based on the lives of members of a Malaysian Indian family, before and after the 1969 riots.
Preeta is also a very skillful and creative writer, with a great imagination. Malaysia indeed boleh, because Preeta is also a Malaysian! Keep it up, Preeta! (More of Preeta here, thanks to Sharon Bakar).
It’s supposed to be winter in Bangkok, and there’s a cool breeze rustling through the leaves of two big trees in front of my balconey.
One is a tamarind tree, the other mango. I don’t live in a luxurious apartment, just a modest one, and it’s actually situated in a kampong area.
Just so you know, I’ve been working on other blogs, too. If you want to keep tab of me and my life in Bangkok, you are welcome to visit my other blogs at BANGKOK BLUES; and my virtual art gallery at SEVEN SENSE. From there, you will notice that I am a multiple blogger and that my life is not all about politics!
You see, I couldn’t stay away, could I?
HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE!
