late nights and rainy days.

salam.

wet.gloomy.
just imagine dublin with the two words in your head.that's how i endured my life here for the past few days.
weather does affect people.i asked one of my irish colleague yesterday why he looked so upset.knowing him,he rarely shows any signs or symptoms of sadness,more to madness most of the time i would say.anyway,he immediately pouted his lips towards the window.owh i see.irish hate bad weather.so do i.i could stand the cold but not the rain.i felt sick afterward with headache giving it signal on one side of my temporal lobe.great.

but that was yesterday.i feel much better today.alhamdulillah.eventhough the rain hasn't stop yet,i decided not to bother too much about it.i just opened my blue umbrella and off i went to class.

lately,reading habit has came back.thank goodness.




i've read the time traveller's wife(TTTW) last week.the struggle between reading this page-turning book and studying for paeds exam was hard.really hard.somehow i managed to finish it 3days before exam.hopefully i pass paeds,owh lord please.back to this book,if you're looking for an atypical love story,go get this book.at first i dunno why claire is so stupid wanting to spend the rest of her life with henry knowing the troubles he has in store for her,knowing she's gonna be left alone occasionally if not often.but the author potrayed claire as someone who knew exactly what she wants and sticks to it no matter what other people say or whatever it takes.if i were to meet claire,i have a question for her:how come she was so sure of her choice?



"mariam would always admire laila for how much time passed before she screamed"


i don't cry when i read novels.i hardly cry in real life.but i cried after reading this line knowing how painful it means.i cried harder towards the end of the story.and before i knew it,i was sobbing when i finished.it's a story of unconditional love,friendship and faith with flavors of lies,hate,pain and suffering.i felt like i was in the city of kabul with the sound of gunfire being shot every now and then outside the door and armed talibans walking up and down the streets.and who knew a limping child would grow up to be a fine man that u just couldn't resist falling in love with?:p i wont say anything anymore.a friend of mine hasn't read the story yet.dun be a spoiler,my heart told.

okies,done with the reviews.esok,lusa,tulat and isnin cuti.yeehaaa!

heyya cik azie.

yep,lama tak dengar dr kamu.owh,if u want i can buy the book for you.if u nak borrow pun boleh.and if u don't mind waiting i can pass it to you when i'm home this winter,around christmas time.

i hope the exams went well:)

my friends actually watched my sister's keeper on big screen.they said the movie isn't bad at all=)i bet the same goes to the book.try cari a thousand splendid sun or the kite runner if u tak baca lae.both are superb and written by the same author!

take care and happy book-hunting!
