Dont Expect Me to Speak Well in English

Oh no! Haha, guys, as some of you may know that I just started to blog in english last year and I never regret it.. ever.

1. Most of it because now I actually understand english books or article without depends mostly on my dictionary. Yay! Of course there were also some words that I need to refer online or dictionary, but I just love the way I dont have to worry in jingling back and forthย searching the words.

2. Now I have understand english (ehem, haha), therefore I dig into my book storage where I keep all my childhood books and grabbing all the english book that I think I understand but actually I’m not. I know this when I stare hard on that book and remember almost.. nothing.. nothing at all.

Facts : I thought Harry’s owl, Hedwig is a male but its a she! Andeeee, thats the circumstances I need to face when reading a malay version of Harry Potter books (as you may know that malay version is hard to recognize whether the character is male or female because we dont have she/he/his/her/him.

3. Just because I write mostly in english does not meant I can speak the language well. Bahaha, I dont really have accent, my accent was purely like Malaysian english (like the local Sabahan mixing UK/US english). I just say whats comes on my mind when it comes to communicate with other english speaker.

4. Writing and speaking in english for me is like a two different world. Cause we have more time in deciding what words comes next when it comes to writing while speaking was not. Its an in situ effect, you need to think the words comes next immediately at that time. So yeah my words comes along with a lot of ‘ummm’, yet thinking the right words to use.

5. But hey that does not meant I’m giving up to speak proper english. Who will? Pffft. ย Since I dont have enough friend who like to join english day challenge, now I’m practicing with the radio announcer, virtually of course.

6. Writing in english actually helps a little when it comes to speak. I guess its not a very different things at all.ย How bad could it be when I have manage myself writing a full blog post in english?

How about you? Are you a multi speaker when it comes to english? ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Terima kasih @imanpublication providing me a free copy in exchange with a honest review. Belum habis baca sebenarnya tapi nak post dulu lah teaser. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Dah baca 180 pages and I love it! Okay sy cuba berlaku adil dengan buku-buku yg sy pernah bca sebelum ni. But this one, was one of its kind. Susunan ayat, installing the character personalities semuanya menjangkaui telahan yang saya telah fikirkan berkenaan novel-novel melayu ๐Ÿ˜‚.
.
.
.
Daebak! Hanya satu ayat menunjukkan betapa saya kagum akan novel ini. But I need to dig more sebab tak selalu buku melayu membuatkan semangat membaca saya membara ๐Ÿ˜‰. Tahniah penulis atas penulisan setengah novel yang begitu dramatik dan intimate.
  • QOTD : What book make you cringe to do something after reading it?
.
.
.
Last week I've been indulge myself in gaming assuming an assassin role mentioned in #projekathena. The mutual connection between the role both in the book also in ML make me cringe to know what its like to be an assassin. Eventually I fall in love with her. So my next move is climbing up the local rank for that particular heroes ๐Ÿ˜‚. I blame @syeraho for this. .
.
.
Back to this book, its been a tearful journey, it was a long reading but a worthy one. I bet one can finish it in one sit as the words uses is simple and understandable.
.
.
.
Not to mentioned it was my first book from HF. Honestly its hard to rate this kind of book, where islamic lifestyle and fiction were blend together. For my version of rating, I tend to give high rate to the book which has intimate, personal connection to the reader (me), so for that reason I'll give 4โญ. Even after catching a headache resulting from tears streaming last night ๐Ÿ˜ฃ. .
.
.
This book recommend for a light reading, bedtimes stories also to those who keen to seek assuring words of His Promises. No particular reader, I think its just suit for everyone. Also a nice book to read it Ramadan!

The book synopsis gonna be in the comment below :
  • Alhamdulillah done reading a malay science fiction about Projek Athena : Manusia Ciptaan (trans : Athena's Projeck : Human Building). Thank you to @imanpublication for providing me a physical copy of this book in exchange with honest review.
.
.
.
And it was a fun reading towards the end. And syabas @syeraho for your first novel! .
.
.
This book recommend to those who love actions because Syeraho write a beautiful chereofighting, well mostly in words - and that something to praise with!
.
.

I'm currently constructing in depth review for this book and will update it soon on Goodreads - read on GR cause  i'm hiding all the spoilers and leave you with all the good parts, lols ๐Ÿ˜œ.
.
.
.
Rating : 3/5 ๐ŸŒ . Sorry there are pro and cons so I'll settle with this first ๐Ÿ˜‰ and also dont judge by my rating cause im just a very stinky person ๐Ÿ˜…. .

Setiap buku harus punya awal niatnya yg tersendiri (Eyqa, 2019).
  • QOTD : What book do you bought only because of its cover?
.
.
.
First time encounter buku published by @katapilarbooks ialah masa baca Syif Tengah Malam. Rupanya this is penerbit yg penulis dia dikalangan doktor, misi also yang bertugas di hospital.
.
.
.
One of many reason I like about them is their cover yg lain dari yang lain. Mcm this one.
.
.
.
Jadi izinkan saya post pasal book cover mendahului book review dulu ya. ๐Ÿ˜‚
.
.
.
Okay sekian. Saja nak bagitau cover dia cantik. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Big thanks to @prologmed cos hosting a GA for this book last year ๐Ÿ’–.

Akhirnya dapat juga habiskan buku ni. Dalam buku ni ada enam cerpen yang bertemakan time travel. Buat yg mendambakan peluang kedua dalam waktu yang terbatas, pembaca diajak untuk menilai semula sekiranya kita bisa merentas masa untuk mengubah sejarah, adakah kita akan lebih bahagia dari sekarang? Or worse? Or dlm erti kata lain kena baca dlu buku ni baru tahu ๐Ÿ˜‚.
.
.
.
Dalam enam cerpen aku paling terkesan dengan yang ada love story with bit of plot twist. Yang ada karakter yang kuat dan background cerita yang baik. Sometimes rasa geram but another time rasa bahagia tgk kebahagiaan character biarpun fiksi semata.Tak nak bagi spoiler jadi ckp secara am sejalah yer.
.
.
.
Overall it was a good book. Kalau fans tentang Hermione with Time Turner, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child boleh lah try baca buku ni, setiap kisah ada teladan masing-masing. Yang tak akan dapat dinilai melainkan dengan cara membacanya sendiri. Hahh suspen takk? .
.

โญโญโญโญ/5 cause I want more. The book alone tak cukup ๐Ÿ˜‚.
