Someone told me I should start writing my blog in English. He said my grammar has turned from bad to worse. I couldn’t believe it at first but when it took me almost an hour just to think about what to write or how to say it right, I finally agree to what he said. Damn.
Anyway, I finished reading Taqwacores, a controversial book written by Michael Muhammad Knight last night. Great book, I must say. Can't wait for the movie to come on DVD in Sungei Wang because I seriously doubt our censorship board wants to play it in the cinema here.
Talking about censors, I think whoever in charge in this board is really funny, unpredictable and very interesting to work with. My advice as a Malaysian, if you want to be a good filmmaker, you have to make a good movie about good Malaysian. No sex, no racism, and nothing against government in it. Make sure you highlight all the elements of 1Malaysia and I bet you'll win at least best director or best picture in our own film festival. Blah blah blah.
And speaking about book-turn-movie, my other favorite book Eat, Pray, Love will be in the cinema as well. It’s a memoir of the author's trip around the world after her divorce, and what she discovered during her travels (very interesting especially when she was in Bali). Her character will be played by great Julia Roberts and my friends in Australia told me that his family/friends in Bali claimed that she was acting a bit like a bitch while she was there. Hahah. I don’t blame her. She's a diva. She has every right to act like one.
Next book that I'm gonna put in my carry-on bag is Air Kisses by Zoe Foster. I bought it in Melbourne last year when I was staying there. I don’t know anything about it really. Perhaps just another chick lit story like Devil Wears Prada or Lipstick Jungle but I'll read it anyway.
OK. I think I babbled enough tonite. You guys should clearly know by now that I don’t have any point to say. So I guess should stop here.
Before that, allow me to ask you guys something, should i just carry on embarrassing myself writing my blog in my broken English? or keep on continue it with my bahasa melayu pasar?
ps: english or malay comments are welcome. i understand both. sedikit-sedikit.
