re-posting what i posted last year: this year's cny is no different from last year's: balik parents' kampung, eat, meet relatives, ang paos and that's it. Not to mention cheesy cny songs in shopping malls/radios with predictable music chords, excessive flute+cymbal playing, no syncing and shallow lyrics (not like I understand also haha). Fact: I cringe at most cny songs, pardon me. Call me the scrooge for cny or whatever i don't care haaa

happy cny, enjoy it to your heart's content

I chanced upon this yesterday at Popular at 80% off and I had to get it, hard cover and all: 

Since it was such a steal, I thought Hey why not just get it and educate myself about Nelson Mandela. Before reading this, all I know was that he championed for the Apartheid rule to be abolished and was sent to prison for that. Well actually that's the main gist of the book haha, since I just finished reading it. 

Great and informative book about his life; how he never gave up fighting and standing up for what he believed in. Sadly he was ridiculously imprisoned from the 1960s - 1990 for fighting for the rights of the black people. Stupid Apartheid rule! It made me angry that this rule was imposed for so many years, creating pointless barriers like 'White Area only', 'non-whites restaurants' and so on. How civilly barbaric, if you get what I'm tryin to say.

Get this book if you see it anywhere. Very informative. Nowadays I'm widening my reading genres to non-fiction/biography/war because I find them more fulfilling than reading fiction. Hooray?

She allowed the slow current to move her across, forming quiet ripples that broke the monotony of the sea. Her muscles begin to relax as she becomes one with nature. Her senses were heightened; she could feel the gentle lapping of salt water against her skin and was surprised at how cooling it was despite the minute grains of salt rubbing her legs and arms. Her almond eyes were directly looking up at the cloudless sky of intense blue. A tear snaked down the side of her face. Her mouth quivered as she tried to suppress a cry. It overwhelmed her as she realized that there is no end point to how far the sky can stretch above the sea. 

The silence was deafening. 

I am finally free, she thought, heaving her last breath.
