- The landscape belongs to the person who looks air it. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Greetings from England! Welcome to my blog which I have created mainly because I enjoy writing for pleasure. Nothing too serious or complex, just some light weight writing as an outlet to express myself. I am the sort who has noted down personal memoirs for the last three decades to date, and have also written several short stories and simple articles in the past. To me writing is a process of self-discovery which is therapeutic as it clears the head, just like a cup of tea! I like the fact that you can write whatever you wish in blogs, and have enjoyed reading those of friends and strangers which are all very unique. Having spent two-thirds of my life in the East, and the rest in the West, I sometimes feel I am neither here nor there, a mere traveller passing through this brief life. Nonetheless, I wish to share some of my thoughts, feelings and experiences thus far (my chattering really) with those who know me. Perhaps how I perceive, adopt and adapt the Western values and cultural norms to fit my Eastern-Malay identity (which is not always easy) shall be reflected in the process. As for those who do not know me personally, my blog might give an insight into the heart and mind of a Malaysian now living permanently in the West. I have no specific order in presenting my posts, I write or quote randomly on any topic which inspires me as I go about my daily life. I shall update at least once a week, all being well! I’m fond of including relevant images (all mine unless otherwise specified) and YouTube video clips to further enhance my writing. Last but not least, please credit any reference to my photos or contents to my blog. Thank you very much for popping by, hope you’ll enjoy your visit. Do leave a message below should you need to reach me for any general query or comment.
