Weekend Activity - New Books To Read And A Giveaway Too

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.


  1. Ooo, a contest, cool :D I think I'll give it a try :D

  2. Hello,

    But it is good to read English Novel because it enhances your English. Hehehe

  3. @Willie,
    Yes, but I also should improve my BM too! :D

  4. I can't even remember the last time I read a novel, must be ages ago.

    Btw, 17 years? if you meant highschool then we grew up in the same era :)

  5. @Evan's Mom,
    You are a 70s baby? :)

    I still read the novels in my collection (the numbers dwindled each time it was borrowed and not returned. Sigh...) but it had been quite some time since I purchase a new one.

  6. Wah! First time I come across contest in Lina's blog. Haha

  7. Too lazy to search for answer. So not joining this one lah, besides Nick and others already expressed interest to join, probably sent email to you already. I'll pass. Good luck to the winner! : )

  8. Oh, I should say congrats to the winner, not good luck. Haha!

  9. Yeah, early 70s. Having a 20 years highschool reunion this year.

    The only books I bought and read these days are Dora, Diego, Ben 10, etc. LOL!

  10. @foong,
    Yeap, first time on all three blogs for me. There's a winner already actually but I'm only announcing the winner next week. :)

  11. @Evan's Mom,
    I think you are about 2 years my senior.:)
    I should be having our 20 years' reunion in 2012 but like always, I'm avoiding that.

  12. Hi Lina!

    I wanted to join but can't do research right now =P so much works to finish
