Sobre mimI'm a bayou-born Cajun from Cut Off, Louisiana (real name place and has nothing do to with cutting things off but more about things cut off). I've been in Singapore and Malaysia since 1989… a two year move just kind of dragged on. Though I love nasi-lemak, it's still not as good as jambalaya... luckily, thanks to my Dad, I know how to cook Cajun food. Here's my Gumbo Recipe.
I went through a period not long ago where all my reading was done using my hand phone. It was convenient. A mobile phone could be pulled out and looked at almost anywhere without question. And I could keep hundreds of books on my memory card… it was more a portable library than phone but I hated getting calls when I was in my library. So I’ve gone back to paper print. Yeah, the environment is important and we should save the trees, but the smell of a new book and feel of it’s lightly textured paper is a joy worth a tree or two… just be sure to replant a tree for every few books you read.
Problem with my reading is I don’t remember things too well. I’ve got multiple copies of books. It’s a costly problem. I think it may be an age thing, though I’m not fully convinced of that. My memory goes back a couple of weeks fairly well, before that…
I'm a landscape architect working at WDI Design Sdn Bhd. I’m paid to tell people where to plant trees so that I can read more books. I design swimming pools and fountains too because water is cool.
My sign is Cynic not Virgo. The charts are wrong… I should know.
Sobre a minha bibliotecaMy library is my current library. Not my library when I was younger... or older. I've gone through many libraries and my books of yesterday seemed to have vanished from my shelves. I'm not sure where they ended up, whether they just turned to dust or sneaked off to be with other books on other shelves. I need a book dog to keep my flock of books in order. I'm beginning to think books are wild beasts and cannot be tamed.
Also I've read almost all of the books listed in my library but since my memory is limited and getting less reliable I'm only marking 'read' the books I've recently gone through.
