In The Pink


Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

It goes to show how kindred spirits make a big difference in our lives.

Thank you Ilakya again for this amazing gift. It is really unexpected that you have chosen me for the Pink Award. Accepting the Pink Award doesn’t end here; there are a few more inspiring rules to accepting the award, and they are:

  1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award!
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass the award to 9* fellow bloggers whom you’ve met recently, and those bloggers who admire for some reason.
  4. Let them know about the award.
Ilakya, you have made me irrepressibly happy. You - whom I have known in the shortest of time for the deepest of emotions. Your poetry is an inspiration to me, surprising in that it mirrors my innermost secrets - yes, you must be the most emphatic person I know - online. Amazing!

Seven things about me
  1. I believe in God utterly, and I trust He will let me choose my path.
  2. Rudi is my soulmate who inspires me to live life to the fullest.
  3. My mother gave me my life. My daughters are my life.
  4. Writing lives me. I write books on ancient Malay and world folklore, write pantun (Malay poetry) and of course poetry.
  5. The world is my oyster, Malaysia is my homeland.
  6. I fell in love on the volleyball court
  7. I am constantly travelling from island to island, from Tasmania out to the rest of the world.
