Insomnia

I can't sleep.
It's 12.13 in the morning of May 30th and I've just finished reading Jodi Picoult's My Sister's Keeper, the best novel of the year yet I've read.
Highly recommended for readers looking for a book that can have an impact on their lives other than Paolo Coelho, but that actually depends if you're actually susceptible to the heart-rending experience of trawling through such tomes for inspirational stories.
Well, all in all..this book has not failed me. The twist and suspense unravels beautifully which makes this a gripping unputdownable story.
In the middle it does get boring a bit when the author dishes out on the regular days of human beings, delaying the pace slightly, as expected, but only then did I realize that it actually had me off guard temporarily to deliver the climactic blow of one of the most memorable endings, I should say.
It had my tears suddenly streaming down my cheeks for some inexplicable reason.
well, worth the spend, I should say.
when I went looking for a book in Alor Star recently, I was actually looking for The Memory Keeper's Daughter, but this novel in hand can termendously compensate for it.

Betrayed by the worst atrociously shameful mark of femininity, the shy, embarrassed, immature, self-conscious, awkward, school girl blush in the presence of a drop dead attractive member of the opposite sex. *facepalm* I'm gonna be fricking 21 years old, hormones, please stabilize.

If you have not read this book, get you hands on it quick!
Yes, I'm serious, it is that good.

why?
simply because it is unforgivingly, brutally honest.
What I love of this book is basically the fact that not a single word has gone to waste. Every single description is relevant, and makes for a pinpoint analogy of each scenario in the book. When you traverse each sentence, you already have an idea what the author is trying to portray in the way he describes what the characters do, wear, walk, talk. the simple gestures represent the very soul of the culture so imminently depicted in this book.
And the main character, Balram, seems so real that you could almost believe that he actually runs around in the streets, er, slums of India. The complexity of emotions and the inner turmoil he felt as he expresses his views on the issues.
The author's ideas of a new-age caste of small-bellied and big-bellied people and the Rooster Coop has been compellingly displayed along the storyline, and y…

Sang Bayu Membisikkan Rinduku Kepada Samudera Cinta-Nya

Menatap kebiruan
yang disulam hijau permata
hamparan keindahan luar biasa

Mutiara jernih
ibarat sungai yang berlari
membasahi pipi
sekali sekala jatuh ke pasir

bayu dingin yang mengelus
membelai-belai wajahnya yang lesu
muram dek cuaca yang mendung
awan-awan kelabu
membaluti langit yang biru,
suram di lubuk kalbunya

meronta-ronta hatinya
mencari nikmat ketenangan

meronta-ronta jiwanya
mencari kebenaran hakiki

ingin saja disapu
debu-debu penipuan
yang mengaburi pandangan mata hatinya

rindunya pada Kasih yang suci menggamit lagi

ampunilah hamba yang hina ini.
