The Stephanie Meyer


Assalamualaikum,

I've just finished watching Stephanie Meyer's interview in the Oprah Winfrey Show; on Youtube.

WOW!
Awesome!
Great!

I don't know who Stephanie Meyer is to others, but she is special to me. She's the author who lured me to start reading English fiction and apparently a combustion of love for reading. Before Twilight Saga, I only read [mostly] non-fictions and fictions that were in line with self-improvement or psychology - stuff like Mitch Albom. But never like Twilight Saga - an epic of something impossible to exist - and other novels.

Thanks to her, my reading frenzy is [insanely] increasing. I feel like forcing her to write new books every month so that I can have material to read. Hahahaha!

She's a phenomenon!

She's a 35 years old stayed-at-home mom turn multi gazillionaire. Despite that she never read vampire books - the only genre she never read - she didn't even write a journal about herself and she never even write a single short story before Twilight Saga. Eventually, Stephanie doesn’t even plan to be an author. [A cute jokes when she said that everyone knows that writing is a bad way to make a living. Ha ha. Gazillionaire!]

She just loves reading. She read Gone with the Wind and Pride and Prejudice at 8! Twilight was only a "dream catalogue" and was only to reconnect to herself. She shared that her boys were having health problem and "none of them slept through the night until they were 2" and she's losing herself at that moment. I like the part when Oprah mention the fact about women like Stephanie - a house wife with 3 boys - "doing the hardest job on earth, staying at home, taking care of their children, and trying to do that well - lose themselves." It is! I guess Twilight is the greatest connection ever :D

"Mama Oprah, you should try it because it's a delicious reading.", said one of Oprah's daughter.

Towards the end, there was a teleconference with Twi-Fans from Bolivar Middle School. There the Twilight Saga has "created culture of literacy", "spread like wildfire", and "it rekindle the love of reading among teachers and students". The library even has a waiting list of thousands for the book - 600 complete sets of Twilight Saga will be send to them!


I couldn't agree more on the stuff shared during the interview. They were all so true. Maybe Twi-Fans just have the same brainwave all around the world [so what?!]. Twilight Saga IS like a wild fire. The word "spreading" suits it very much. And, it is as dangerous as the vampire venom. Once bitten, forever you'll belong to the vampire world.


Wassalam.

Goodbye Ben Jern

Oh my... another good bye. Why laaaaaaaaaa~!

Today, we bid farewell and we wish a great future to our one and only Loh Ben Jern of #BenHafiz FlyFM. Our heroes of insanity.
It's the final 30 minutes of flying with Ben's craziness... So sad! Huhuhuhuhu. Ben Jern has been on air since 10 PM last night - slumber party katanya - and I only sleep 3 hours plus, listening to him sambil kemas barang.
I know, some of you might think: "What is wrong with this girl, crying over a DJ...". Clearly, you don't know Ben, you never listen to these #FunnyBigBoys #BenHafiz and you never listen to Mrs. Boopathy and Pak Jamil or their Krappi Call. They are the only person on earth who can make Malaysians do *obviously* crazy stuff over a phone call. Hahahaha. Ben is the most adorable talking goat. LOL!


*** They are airing the Grandmother of All Krappi Call again - where Ben finally got krappi-ed *** I was laughing madly in the car earlier this morning... And then I cried. Oh it was su…

Celebrate the Love: Bones and Booth

I have exam at 2 pm today and I've been burning the midnight oil. But I really really really want to share this: Bones and Booth's wedding vow. Well sort of wedding conversation, actually.
I love them and I am happy that the characters finally get their happy ending.

To Bones, the coolest geek I ever known, and to Booth, congratulations!


Booth: "You know, I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here—look, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here, standing right around this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me, and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, 'Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row,' right, and then you said to me, [Brennan: "I can be a duck."]. Yeah. We had been chasing each other for a long time, been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and sn…

Getting Out of the Slump

Sometimes I feel like crying will solve everything. When I feel like that, I know I am in the slump - "The New Moon" slump. I called it that because I am in a similar state as Bella Swan in The New Moon after Edward Cullen left her.
"It's like a huge hole has been punched through my chest."
"Normal memories were still dangerous. If I let myself slip up, I’d end up with my arms clutching my chest to hold it together, gasping for air..."
These.
It's hard to get out from this state, but I have bounce back before. It took a lot of patience, a lot of determination, a generous amount of support, and most importantly: a strong will.
The strongest will is fueled by living up to the purpose of our creation - to submit and worship Allah.
Crying does solve everything; when you used up all your energy and cry in your solat and doa.
It is always the darkest before the new moon. And stars are the brightest during this time.

I'll find my way - I assure myse…
