yup..the above is a pic of a
BOOK that i have read!!
don't be shock huh..
coz this is my VERY 1st time
posting a bout the book review
basically,
i don't read a lot
in other word i DON'T INTERESTED in reading!
waaarghhhhhhhhhhhhhh...
no seriously...

i do always have the intention to read
but to practice it..hurmmmm..not really
BUT THIS BOOK is totally a DIFFERENT!
as i go to my friend's room
i saw it lying helpless on the floor
then, i take it and started to read the FIRST SENTENCE
and...
WOOWwwww...i knew that i'll FINISH this book
(hahahha..coz usually when i read an ENGLISH novel....
HALF only lor)

thus,
what is soo0o interesting about this one..
lets begin with the author
she is LYDIA TEH..
a woman, housewife, mom and A BLOGGER!
yup..thats the answer
her story based on her blog post!!
and in a MANGLISH-lor!
*MANGLISH means MALAY+english ^____^
well actually Mangled English..
which is easy to understand
and which is the language that i used here in my blog..heh heh

but what is the thing that most captured my interest is
the way her thinking as a pure original MALAYSIAN
is REALLY A MALAYSIAN!
IF YOU'RE NOT GETTING WHAT I MEANT...

here is some of  the sub-topics of the book:

1. We're Malaysian-lah, we don't kiss
telling about our culture here where people don't kiss in the public although there are chinese or indian.
she story about her experience when an AUSSIE kiss her as he wanted to say THANK YOU for the dinner!

2. Blame it on the worms
she was expressed her unsatisfied feeling with the typical situation about paying the summons at the police station whereas a group of people (worms a.k.a ULAT) that wanted to pay for several summons. Then they are taking longer time than ever!

3. The one who cuts the grass
this is really a MALAYSIAN culture..she categorized this person who come to cut the grass at her house with THE ONE WHO DISSAPERED, THE ONE WHO BROKE THE CAR WINDOW and etc etc

4. MAGLISH very short one
the culture of using ENGLISH in MALAYSIA..she gave lots of example that i am myself is using it without realize it..heh heh look at those sentence

english     :hi lucy, havent see u in a long time..hw are u?
manglish  :hi lucy, long time no see..so how?

english    :would u reverse ur car?
manglish :GOSTAN!

hahahahha ^___^
FUNNY ISN'T IT?
yup the whole stories in this book are lots of humor!
LYDIA TEH is a FUNNY writter...seriously!! ^____^
while i read this book, i kept SMILING and grinning
ok sometimes i was laughing!!
Beb memang die nih jelakar.. 
dan buku nih KELAKAR!

okeyh..lets end it here..
so im suggesting for those who DON'T put reading as a hobby
