The Lag

Connection has been excruciatingly slow ever since. Somehow I do not doubt that TM-nut/Snailmyx/Screamyx is behind the slow internet speed, maybe the recent earthquakes around Peninsular Malaysia have ultimately affected the speed. First is China (amen T^T), then Sabah, and later Indonesia. I do hope Kuala Lumpur here won't have its first earthquake anytime soon. Malaysia is quite peaceful... for now.

Even Miku needs some recharging :0

I just finished reading a really good book today. It's titled The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. I think as an addicted reader, I should really recommend you to read this book, because the story-telling is so gripping and powerful! Let me share some of the details with you:

The Kite Runner is the story of strained family relationships between a father and a son, and between two brothers, how they deal with guilt and forgiveness, and how they weather the political and social transformations of Afghanistan from the 1970s to 2001.

The adult narrator, Amir, lives in San Francisco and is contemplating his past, thinking about a boyhood friend whom he has betrayed. The action of the story then moves backward in time to the narrator's early life in Kabul, Afghanistan, where he is the only child of a privileged merchant. Amir's closest friend is his playmate and servant Hassan, a poor illiterate boy who is a member of the Hazara ethnic minority. The Kite Runner, a coming-of-age novel, deals with the themes of identity, loyalty, courage, and deception. As the protagonist Amir grows to adulthood, he must come to terms with his past wrongs and adjust to a new culture after leaving Afghanistan for the United States.

OMG, my tv remote is dead! Darn it.

Have fun watching this music video here D:
