Apart from two cookbooks I bought last week, I got myself a Malay novel from MPH today. Ashamedly I have to admit that I don't read Malay novels since I left school. So this novel is my first in almost 17 years!
The novel is titled Pulut Sakura, Serunding Kasih written by Leyla Shuri. What makes this novel so special that I picked up not one but two from MPH is that it was written by Kak Lela or Hajah Halela of Awan Okinawa Berlalu. I have been reading her blog from quite a while now and enjoyed her posts a lot.
Now, I have the chance to enjoy her book too and I plan to read the book during the weekend. I bought an extra book, and I plan to give it away. Interested in owning the book?
Open to anyone, anywhere but you do have to understand Malay language to try. Just answer one simple question and the first person to answer correctly will have this book sent over to him/her. E-mail me the answer (just click on my profile for my e-mail address).
The question is : In what month and year did the writer of Pulut Sakura, Serunding Kasih climbed Mount Fuji? A hint: shimmy over Hajah Halela's blog and go to posts under Travel. I'll announce the winner in two weeks' time.
