Becoming Jane?

yeah i know its been far too long i abandoned my blog ,si? been so busy before i didn't even have the time to write anything, but then later i lost my appetite to write anything about everything.

just watched Becoming Jane just now on Astro and suddenly a question from a friend of mine long time ago popped. Her question was, "kenapa qilah suka baca novel hah? qila suka berangan eh?" .

She already answer her question herself before i can even tell her the truth myself. But the moment i heard her answer i was so shocked and surprised how shallow the answer was. Hello, kerja aku bukan berangan je okay?. Though architects need to imagine a lot and imagination creates everything you have now.

Yes i admit when i have free time especially during long holidays i'll read anything that i think interesting.

Reading, watching and even liking Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre and Becoming Jane do not show u like to daydreaming or to have the perfect love or marriage someday, but indeed these stories really inspired me in a way as a woman. These stories show that women also can create something, can be something and can be someone important. I just knew that Jane Austen never get married. All she wanted to do was to write books.

During the summer holidays, i've been reading a couple of books that i think some of them could really inspire you in a way which are the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and Have a little Faith by Mitch Albom.

I still remember when i did a very short attachment in an architecture firm after SPM. The architect (which is my mum's friend too) asked me a question at the end of the day,

"Do you imagine things when you are reading a book? If yes, then its just as simple as that to be an architect".
but of course you have to put efforts and hardwork with that.
