Memeluk Gerhana by Isa Kamari

It nice to be a reader. Lets read, don't be shy to read. Few days ago I just finished reading one Malay novel-the title: Memeluk Gerhana, the author: Isa Kamari. The story of a boy named Ilham Sidek, the boy of Kampung Tawakal, student of Raffles Institution, the prisoner of Jabatan Keselamatan Dalam Negeri. He was gone through a hard and happy life. A few girls around him, affected his life. Something unexpected made his life became harder. At one stage, he made his parents very dissapointed and he learned from his mistake but "those people" never want to let him go. He missed Syakila from his heart with his blind eyes.

I was impressed by this quote, "'Hendaklah engkau jadi orang besar, yang sanggup memikul cinta yang besar. Kalau tak begitu, engkau akan beroleh cinta yang rendah dan murah, engkau menjadi pencium bumi, engkau akan jatuh ke bawah, tak jadi naik ke dalam benteng yang kuat dan teguh...yang sukar tertempuh oleh manusia biasa".

p/s:What's good things about Malaysian?
i. We speak Bahasa Melayu, we read Bahasa Melayu books, we proud with Bahasa Melayu
ii. We speak English, we read English books
iii. We are celebrating the 50th Independence
iv. He made mistake, being recorded, and he resigned, then we say something or we say nothing

Salam Kerd,

I've been to this blog before.Sight seeing je,takde jejak.

''He was gone through before...'' should be ''he has gone through...''.

Always on the move.Really need some time to unwind and enjoy those books that I bought last year.Dah berkulat pun tapi bila nak baca ntah!

Salam kak Rai,
Recently I start to take care about this blog very much. Yeah, that was my mistake.. It should be "he has gone gone through", thanks for the correction. Sometimes I just avoid the grammar. Please come here again kak Rai, thanks for the visit.
