East Coast

It must have been like 15 years since I last stepped in East Coast of Malaysia.

So a relative’s function in Kuantan last week was just the excuse I needed for a 520 kilometres drive to and fro East Coast.

When I was young and my parents could not afford to buy us toys, we had to contend with making our own wooden toys. One of the “usual” toys that we often make is the wooden gun.

Not yet, at least for the moment.

The morning starts with me coughing and spitting out yucky phlegm. Yucky because it is just thick and yellowish. And when it is yucky, cough is often followed by vomiting (this is a scary part, even for me!).

So, just imagine hearing a “cough + vomiting” sound, so early in the morning for 10 minutes?… [Click to read the rest] “Down but not out”

Ice Age

The year was 2033

The polar cap has melted a long time ago, flooding the costal areas and completely covering many small costal nations. Many parts of Malaysia costal areas are under the sea.
