'Hati' and A Personal Struggle

"Hati" in BH Ahad, 15 September 2019
Alhamdulillah.
Relief. 
That is the best emotion to describe my feeling upon finishing writing 'Hati' a few weeks ago. For the past two, three years, particularly after writing Rumah Kopi (yikes that's four years ago!), I just spiraled towards a black hole where I struggled artistically on a daily basis. 
Nothing I wrote was satisfactory - I wanted to tell so m Read more of this blog post »

Isabel Allende shared a note from
The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende
In l981 I was 39 years old, living in exile in Venezuela, working as a school administrator, frustrated and lonely. My marriage was slowly ending, my children were teenagers and they had their own interests, I hated my job. I missed Chile and the life I had before the military coup of 1973 that forced me out of the country. On the 8th of January, I got a phone call that my beloved grandfather was dying. I started a farewell letter for him that rapidly turned into something else. My intention was to tell him that he could go in peace because I remembered all he ever told me, his life, my crazy ...more

Maisara what's your favorite series?


Maisara words are very small though (but not as small as microorganisms)but great cover but once upon a marigold sound silly. well, my favorite book is how to your dragon book 7:how to ride a dragon's storm. the words are bigger

Apologies for not replying sooner, I've been sick and lethargic after work.

Do you want to read the books immediately (I can ship them) or do you want me to pass them to Mama whenever I see her next?


Maisara cool, i would like to try them!


Rebecca Maisara wrote: "Any kind of books you read my kind?"

Hi Maisara!

I love Ella Enchanted (Gail Levine): http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24...

and

Once Upon a Marigold (Jean Ferris): http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15...

Their stories are similar to Tangled - about strong young ladies finding their footings in life. If you're interested, I have both books and you are more than welcome to borrow them.


Maisara Any kind of books you read my kind?


Najibah Abu Bakar Becky, selamat berGR :) - Gembira semakin ramai penulis muncul di sini.
