Although I'm like 2 days late to greeting, but I'd still like to wish a Merry Christmas to all! =D How was life throughout this year?? I believe some of you out there must had a rough year, put down all your worries and enjoy the last few days of this year! =] Cheers everybody!! =D
I always loved Christmas, but for some reason, Christmas in Brunei is underrated, so you don't really feel the Christmas atmosphere. No worries! One more year till I leave this country and I'll have my Christmas celebration anywhere I want and more festive and lively!!! xD (How 'bout a santa claus cosplay? XD) Oh yes, my Gaia avatar also join in the play! xD I call it 'Dark knight santa', PLEASE! DON'T SAY I'M LAME!!!! (From everybody : Laaaaaaaaaaameeeeeeeeee*echoing* Me: Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo *voice fading away...*)
Alright, hope everyone out there is enjoying the last few days of this year. A Christmas banner has made for EVERYONE whose viewing this blog. ^-^ Lastly here, a Merry Christmas to all!! =D

Anyways, I remember before Evon went back to KL again this month, she passed some books to me and asked me to read 'em. I was kinda surprised that she even handed me some chic's books? Yes, you heard me, chic's books, 'The True Naomi Story' and 'The Model Wife', and I'm not even sure if I would read 'em. xD She plucked another book from the bookshelf, titled 'The Five People You Meet In Heaven', which kinda caught my attention, it kinda reminded me of the book I bought in Taiwan, '我在雨中等你'. Direct translation should be 'I'm waiting for you in the rain' but the original title of the book was 'The Art Of Racing In The Rain'.
Introduction of the Book:
Author: Stein, Garth
Publisher: Baker & Tayl
Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.
Through Denny, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn't simply about going fast. Using the techniques needed on the race track, one can successfully navigate all of life's ordeals.
On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through: the sacrifices Denny has made to succeed professionally; the unexpected loss of Eve, Denny's wife; the three-year battle over their daughter, Zoe, whose maternal grandparents pulled every string to gain custody. In the end, despite what he sees as his own limitations, Enzo comes through heroically to preserve the Swift family, holding in his heart the dream that Denny will become a racing champion with Zoe at his side. Having learned what it takes to be a compassionate and successful person, the wise canine can barely wait until his next lifetime, when he is sure he will return as a man.
A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a beautifully crafted and captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life . . . as only a dog could tell it.
I did a research on this book in English version cos I want to introduce this book to people whose reading my blog. This is a book for the soul, telling a story from what a dog feels inside itself and how hard the little dog tries to listen to everything the master spouts at it. Anyhow, because I read the book in Chinese version, so I had to drop some Chinese words here~ xp
This novel is really worth reading. =]
