The Day My Mother Died
Don't you have the same too once in a while? That there is a movie in your head? On repeat? Over and over again? This I have recently. The day my mother died. I realized that I never put it on paper, this day, this rather special day in a way. Not for me but …
Facewell Facebook (pt 4)
Facebook is a terrible invention. I am happy that I am out of there, though it is only a month or so. However, it is enough time to have 'forgotten' about it, how it is not part of my life anymore, or, how I'm no longer part of Facebook's money making machine. But I also …

Slowly but surely I discover more and more about Malaysia and that's terrifyingly amazing!
