A Thousand Splendid Suns - Khaled Hosseini

A Thousand Splendid Suns recounts the experiences and emotions of two Afghani women, Mariam and Laila, whose lives become entangled with the history of recent wars in their country. Mostly bleak and heart-rending, their story does offer the promise of hope and happiness in a land ravaged by warfare, gender conflicts, and poverty.

Just finished reading this... if u haven't read this, i highly recommend that u do =) this is a splendid read~ its the kind of story that dwarfs the stress, financial issues, relationship problems and etc that we face in our life, the kind that makes u feel very very lucky just to be sitting here.. Sometimes we really need reads like this to just remind us that how truly lucky we really are and that we should always ALWAYS be grateful.. this story depicts the wars which were happening in Afghanistan a few years back.. which also lead to the 911 incident.. how war tore families apart, how thousands of innocent people were killed, how Islamic women were oppressed and abused.. and the saddest part is even though the characters were fictional, in reality, the truth is that there were many who suffered the fate of these characters or an even worser fate than them.. 

Hope to get my hands on this next, does anyone have it? =) there's a movie also.. =P

Confused.. Saddening.. Disappointed..
Are u really the u i know? Did not see anything of the u i've known and admired.. 
Was i fooled? Or are u putting up a facade? i don't know..
U're like a totally different person.. A stranger..

 Time don't really change people,
it changes the understanding between people..

Sports Day ~ From a teacher's view =P

8 May 2010

Sports Day~~

For the CHSians, u know how its like.. ;) The usual hunt for recyclable items, shopping for pelaka, cooking glue, getting costumes done, and 1001 things to do. XD haha.. Well, this year, Amy has been busy with these stuff.. I only pop by the Hijau room every once in awhile to see how the juniors are doing.. (btw, i'm a red house teacher this year.. but im still helping the greens anyway.. =P) so, after much preparation, the big day finally arrived~ haha..

This year, as a teacher, i was assigned as a Hakim Penamat. sounds grand right? XD haha.. basically we just sit at the benches at the finishing line to see who finish first, second and etc.. And well, since we have a new Photography Club, a dozen or so students were seen everywhere snapping shots with their very pro(expensive too) DSLRs. XD so, without furthur ado, let me show u their fruits of labour~ this is gonna be a very picturey post! haha.. enjoy! =)
