The Writer in Me from Beautifully Damaged

“Sometimes the writer in me crafted stories about the people I saw but today I just observed”.

This is a quote from Beautifully Damaged by L.A. Fiore, the book I’m reading. I thought I’m the only weirdo that watch people and make out stories about them in my head.

Glad to know I’m not the only one.

Story Behind “The Last Goodbye”

One of my two articles written for Malaysia Day is called “The Last Goodbye“. I enjoyed writing this particular article because my research brought me to the nearest public library, the Kuching South City Council library. Have I told you how much I love the library?

The last goodbye is about the final message of the last British governor of Sarawak before he departed for good.

It was intriguing to be able to read how journalist wrote a news piece back in 1963. Are Malaysians’ standards of English slowly deteriorating since we were no longer a colonial state?

Personally, I’m proud to be able to speak in fluent Malay. But I’m also proud that I can speak in English, Kayan and Mandarin Chinese.

Anyway, my research on Malaysia day led me to this news.
