Happy New Year 2016 to All…

New Year 2016

Today is the last day of the year 2015. I just get into my office and pour a mug of coffee. Actually it is the second one because I need coffee in order to work well in the morning.

I just wanted to wish people around the world a Happy New 2016. I hope everything good in the year 2016. Every year I’m getting older and hoping getting wiser with experience.

Carol Soundtrack

Carol Soundtrack

 

Yesterday I ordered Carol soundtrack CD from Amazon.com. I’m so addicted to Carol after watching the movie. The score is so beautifully done by Carter Burwell. I can’t wait for the CD to arrive somewhere in January.

 

The Danish Girl

 

I’m also looking forward to watching The Danish Girl. I haven’t read the book yet but I think I will just watch the movie first. Usually I will watch the movie first because I was once to be a lazy bum when it becomes to read the thick book.

 

I’m looking forward the year 2016. I think my New Year resolution would be trying to lose some more weight and hope to further my study or get a new job. I’m quite happy because I manage to maintain my weight but I need to lose some more. Haha… lame resolution but, I do need to find time and energy to exercise like 3 to 4 in a week. Now I usually exercise every weekend only because when I get back from work almost 7 pm so I don’t have the energy to exercise just relaxing with my cats (my babies).

Road Bully in Malaysia

Road Bully in Malaysia

I have to write this as a reminder to Malaysians that not to follow or be like this guy. I took these pictures because he took my pictures first. He might post it on Facebook, Instagram and etc. I can do it, but thinking back I just post it here only. I’m not like other people like to find fame or popularity through those social media.

He acted like a maniac and keeps cursing at my car (not listening!). Haha… I just ignore people like that! Because I think people like that not worth to pay attention.

As you can see from the pictures above how rude he can be. If I’m not thinking clearly I might ram his “Kenari” car. But as a professional, I need to think about my reputation. I can’t taint my name or my family name just because of this RUDE Malay guy. I’m so ashamed with people like that.

People like him made my former colleague from America can’t stand staying in Malaysia. He even reminded to my colleague from The Philippines about Malaysian driving attitude. I felt ashamed but I know it is the truth. I have had been staying in Australia for almost 2 years and I like the way the Australian driving their vehicles and respect the pedestrians.

Merry Christmas Wishes to All Readers and Followers

I have quite a long holiday so I took an opportunity to buy another two books for myself from thriftbooks.com. This is the first time I buy used books from the thriftbooks.com. I hope the service is good because usually I will read other reviews before commit to buy anything from the website that I am not familiar with.

One of the reasons I buy books from the thriftbooks.com is because the shipping costs. I’m so happy with the standard international shipping costs and they also offer expedited shipping.

I bought Kim Wilkins books called The Infernal and Fallen Angel. I love Kim Wilkins works and I never read any of her work as Kimberley Freeman. I like the element of horror and supernatural in her writing style. I can’t wait to read The Infernal because it was her first novel and it won the Aurealis Award.

Carol by Patricia Highsmith

Carol

This is the first time that I ever read from Patricia Highsmith. I loved the book and I cannot wait to watch Carol after reading the book written beautifully by Patricia Highsmith.

I did pre-ordered the book from the bookdepository and happy with my purchased because I cannot wait for the book to be sold in Malaysia.

At first the book quite slow, I think it is because the storyline was in 50s and I need to imagine and get use with Patricia Highsmith written styled. I’m able to finish the book less than a week.  I love the cover design but the cover too soft and I need to be delicate to read it.

I wish I could watch the movie in the cinema because I was amazed with Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara performance in portraying the Carol and Therese. The cinematography of the film is also beautifully done.

Home Sweet Home

Time goes so fast and today’s already the 1st of December. I’m looking forward to moving in to my own home sweet home. Currently I’m still living with my parents. I always wanted to design and decorate my own house and finally my dream comes true. Firstly I wanted to design my own bedroom and then home office with a delightful library in it. I can’t wait to relocate my precious collections from boxes and some of my books are placed in the closet. Most of the books that I bought in Australia are in the closet that my dad had it built after I came back from Australia because I brought back lots of things. I’m so excited to move out because currently I need to travel like 45 minutes to work. My new home sweet home if I’m not mistaken only took 10 minutes from work place.
