My 2nd project

Friday, February 26, 2010

After some time (last check, it's been a year plus), I continue knitting ya.. It's a pouch again, which has been long overdue, for my friend.. She had wanted a doggie on the pouch too, as she likes doggie, but well, can't find any now, so I make a basket weave drawstring pouch with pompom instead.. Hope she'll like it..

I wish I can practise knitting more, so that I can start on a sweater project.. :)

Tuesdays With Morrie

Friday, December 18, 2009

This is a very inspiring book.. It's the last thesis for Mitch Albom, with his old college professor Morrie Schwartz. Truly emotional advises from an experience coach disabled byALS, a motor neuron disease. Each chapter inspires me through such simple ways on how I should live my life from this second onwards.. This is a very special book that enlightens me and put me into tears. Love this book..

Learn how to die, and you learn how to live
- quote from Morrie Schwartz

The Dead and the Gone

Friday, October 09, 2009

It's hard to put it down once started and somehow I think I'm gonna remember this book for some time..

Author: Susan Pfeffer
First published: 2008

Description: I guess there's so much in the author's mind that made her come out with this book. About the uncertainty of our future, about what we imagine it to be and how we cope with it. It started of with the 'something' that hit the moon off its orbit..
I was thinking about it even after I put down the book, after I finished reading it.
I think about it before sleeping, in between work, in the car, during toilet breaks.. I thought I was going to be crazy... Thinking of what if it really happens, am I prepared? Am I able to survive? Though surviving may not be a good idea if your loved ones are not beside you.. But survival is a must, if you know your loved ones depend on you..

But Phew~~ What a relieve it's just a great work of fiction... or maybe not..

I've just finished reading on Wild Fire Nelson Demille

First published: 2006
Description: I like this book, it was much of a thriller and John Corey was once again smart but yet taking chances this time while investigating on Project Green & Wild Fire.. It was a miracle towards the end on how they deal with Bain Madox.
One thing I've learned from the book, is about ELF: extremely low frequency, which was once used by the US & Russion navy to communicate with their submerged submarines which are normally far away from the underwater station... And, ELF emerges again here in this book, as the frequency used to detonate nuclear bombs.................

4th July

Friday, March 13, 2009

Wernn borrowed me this book, entitled 4th July by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro.

This book is yet another detective solving strings of murders and crimes, but somehow the detective this time is involved in a teen-murder court case herself.. It was not one of the best detective & criminal stories I've ever read, but it sure is exciting and hard to put down. But just disappointed at how the murder cases got solved in the end abruptly. A little too express and fake.. Hehe.. worth it, as a leisure reading.

I've finally completed Spencerville by Nelson Demille
Wernn found this in the Penguin booksales. I was expecting more conspiracy juice out of this book, but since it was one of the early writings, it was a good leisure read.

First published: 1995
Description: About the passions of long-lost love and the sadistic husband in a town called Spencerville in Ohio.
