I don’t know whether you notice it or not that my last post was dated on March 1 and I haven’t posted anything else since then (it goes the same with my turtle’s blog)…the reason is because I was moving from our old house in Cipedak to Pasar Rebo.
As you know, well some of you know, that my mom passed away in December 2011. I have been living with my dad ever since. My brother, my father and I finally came to a decision to live together, the four and a half of us (me, my father, my brother and his wife, and my nephew). It’s a lot cheaper that way and the more is always the merrier.
We moved on Sunday and till this day our house is still look like a wrecked ship (it’s an Indonesian term, we always call messy house as kapal pecah – wrecked ship). I finally got around to set my tiny room (2,5 x 2,5 meters) to a perfect room that can fit one bookshelf, two 125 litre containers plus two basking area for my baby turtles, one bed, one small container for the books I have read and –of course- one computer. I only have small space for me to move around. I can’t let my turtles’ tanks/containers to be placed outside my room because my 1,5 year old nephew loves to play with the water. Turtle’s water is full of salmonella (they have no effect on me anymore).
Now that I have put everything in order, which I did in between my daily jobs, I can finally start blogging again…and I miss it so much!!
I have two books, some movies and L’Arc~en~Ciel’s newest album needed to be reviewed. They all will be written and published soon. I have started blog-walking since this morning. I really miss blogging and visiting my blogger friends a lot.
Although my computer is still not working properly…but…I hope I can blog regularly again from now on 🙂
You can also read about our moving process in Kame and Kroten’s blog.
Enough about moving and all the hectic that followed afterward, now let’s move on to my plan for next week.
Mel U of The Reading Life is hosting Irish Short Story Week once again, it starts on March 12 to March 22.
I have a thing for Ireland and you know why 😉
I bought The Wordsworth Collection of Irish Ghost Stories last year and haven’t read all the stories yet because I like to read them in slow pace. Reading few shorts from that wonderful book will be perfect for next week’s reading event.
You can see the list of all the stories in that book by clicking on the picture.
The ones I am planning to read are:
by Thomas Crofton Crocker
- The Legend Of Knockgrafton
- Daniel O’Rouke
- Master And Man
- The Haunted Cellar
- Legend Of Bottle Hill
by Bram Stoker
- The Judges House
by Oscar Wilde
- The Canterville Ghost
BUT…they are subjects to change 😉
I might have a change of heart.
Mel U has written some great recommendation if you want to explore Irish Short Stories with us > here.
Looking forward for my next week’s read. Thank you Mel.
