Aidura (sofira) | 1472 comments A bookmaker, or bookie, is an organization or a person that takes bets on sporting and other events at agreed upon odds.

--> A BOOKIE stand for what? An avid reader or a gambler???

Hang la, Johnny ooiiii. Double meaning sungguh...

Lots of other things, and at the end left a tiny amount of time for me to read - but I count myself lucky because my will to keep reading grow stronger!

message 28: by melissa (new)

melissa madjid (ichaudah) | 8 comments seringnya saya membaca kerana ingin mencari inspirasi2 baru..kdang selain dari buku bisa didapat dari film, meski momen filternya bisanya lebih extra, karna film indonesia sangat jarang. tp film 'luar'...

@khairul : always reading? wish i can do that too..


message 29: by Kataklicik (new)

Kataklicik | 714 comments Mel, masa Golden Globes hari tu saya terpaku sekejap sebab baru sedar yang filem-filem tahun lepas pun belum tengok, ini kan pulak filem tahun ini hahaha

(Kerana anak-anak, saya tengok cerita anak-anak saja di panggung wayang! Cerita 'orang tua' hmmmmmm.... tunggu Astro aje lah jawabnya...)


message 30: by Izzati (new)

Izzati Masri | 71 comments wanna share this too.. =D
previously, just before my lovely 'lappy' a.k.a my lptop was robbed i left left my books for hundred of movies i'd kept in my HD. [been collecting bfore i'd ended up my foundation studies:]...unless i got them all boring, then i will turn to my reading back.

or sometimes if i don't read, i'd rather listen to the music.. and i guess it is my OFFICIAL thing i'll alwz do...huhu, even if i'm reading, i'll do 2 things at a time, music and books..

haaa..this is anther one..blogging and facebooking. I can't leave it even once. At least, i have to check my account both at fcebook and blogger once per day. I am a cyber craze... =D


message 31: by Nurul (last edited May 05, 2010 03:09PM) (new)

Nurul (nurulhidayahyahya) | 242 comments What do I do when I'm not reading? I talk to other person about what I've read! I can assure you 90% of my answer to my friend's question of "mane ko tau pasal ni?" is "aku baca..".

Being a bookworm, It make the job of persuading others a lot more easier too..because people will just oblingingly listen to your "because I read it somewhere.." more than your reasoning of "because I heard somebody said.." heheh


message 32: by Norain (new)

Norain | 687 comments If I don't read books, I read journals and articles a.k.a studying(!).

If I don't read at all, I surf the net, blog and watch animes. Oh, and I sleep! Information overflow makes my brain wants to puke (yes, my brain; not me) and I have to sleep or else I will keep forcing my brain to work.


message 33: by Izzati (new)

Izzati Masri | 71 comments bagusnya Qudwatun..
kalau bagi artikel kat saye, tengok gambar je la.. =D

xpun, i will at least jot something down in my diary. For now, i've got 4 diaries overall. It is fun. Somehow, when i read those back,it sounds rather silly and fool =)

Those articles and journals are a part of the required readings of my course. I found it fun to read them but if there are too much for my brain to absorb, sometimes I will go berserk.

The last time I wrote a diary was when I was 17 but after that, I changed to blogging.

Seriously Izzati, I need to rethink my stand. I should go back to writing diaries. Lately I have the feeling of wanting to scribble down something every now and then. I cannot do that in my blog!

Diary, I am coming back to you!!! (And bloggie, don't cry. I am not abandoning you)

But really its really isn't all that great about writing blogs ...expecially if you want to write about ur deepest thoughts and opinion....blogs just for fun nothing much ....but when it comes to diary i feel like it is ur second written mind thoughts ....well just as long as nobody reads it LOL
gosh i miss diary writing alot !!!


message 41: by Izzati (new)

Izzati Masri | 71 comments i'm thinking the same too. I'm having two blogs so far. one for everyone and the other is more like a diary. I was at first wondering if i should have some variety of writing down in diaries. so then i turned out to do the same thing like e-diaries. well, now, i bet the feeling of having e-diaries are not so much fun instead of writing down by yourself in a pretty notebook or something. In fact, people still can read every of the story i had posted and mentioned on the screen and it will no longer be a diary. But,it did has the advantages as there were some inspiring comments which somehow had turned me on and motivating. =)

All blog sites have an option for you to make your blog "private".

yup they do but still if you can hack into people's blog...... no point .... besides your url link is bound to get linked somewhere
I too agree with izzati .....nothing beats writing in a diary :)

Izzati Masri | 71 comments LOL..i never think of making it a private site before..
