Last week, Mr Hubby bought a book for me. A book by an author I really admire. She writes like Kak Teh. That's why I like it. And when reading it, it inspires me to write my blog.
I believe, he decided to buy me the book after several times seeing me flipping the book everytime we go to MPH :P And mind u, it's very extraordinary to see me so keen on reading books despite being an academician!
Mr Hubby wrote on one of the pages... "This book shows my support on your blog. May one day U become as excellent as the author is."
After a few days of snuggling with the book, whenever I am not very busy, this morning, I complained to Mr. Hubby about the little smudge on the edge of the book.
I have no idea where did it come from, but I just don't like it, esp. when it is on my fav book!
Hubby : It's ok. It shows that u READ it.
Me : But I don't like the comot-comot. Not nice! (*pulling face*)
Hubby: If a book is so lawa, it means that the book is untouched, not read.
Me : *grin*
And my thought flew to my red Add Maths exercise book when I was in Form 5. I could easily remember the author's name -Khoo Cheng, as it sounds like Kucing (the cat). Hehehe.
Anyway, the book was so clean, barely seen with scribbles... If any, it'd be in pencils. That's how good I was at keeping my books. Actually, it means how bad I was at manipulating the book for my own good.
One day, I was surprised to find a note slipped in the book that says "Thank u for lending me the book."
It must be from a putera (a male student that is) who must have occupied my desk during prep hours. You see, I didn't even realize that the book went missing from my desk! Hahaha. So bad!
No wonder I didn't get an A for Add Maths in SPM! :P
