The wind-up bird chronicle

Currently dwelling into another Murakami's well. Too deep and dark I almost lost myself.

Apparently logic has penetrated deep into my deepest veins that along the pages I keep questioning the same question: why am I reading this? Murakami has been quite successful in bringing up those things and stuff I (didn't know that I) don't want to read such as human-skinning process and self-torturing. No, just no.

The usual Murakami topics such as existence, solitude and confusion are also equally irritating. Those used to be my favourites, a meta-part of me was always crave for them. Yet I find myself having a hard time to actually understand or even to have a little sympathy for the characters. Maybe Murakami is way  too god-like in this one, there is hardly a way for the characters too freely find themselves.

Or.. is it my ventures into Adult world that has swayed me from being.. me?

Of Weekends and Life

2016 went fast and here we are approaching mid year. We are also on the edge of holy month. Frankly, it's been a better fasting month than previous years. So everything is doing better except my writing skill--lol, yes I should read and write more to get used to this again.

Anyways, this is a personal blog but I never really share personal stuff which I consider private i.e family, relationships and work. But my highlight of this first semester of 2016 is me moving into a new industry. Previously, I was in consulting and now I am in private equity so more on the owner side. It's been fun, I feel like finding a new domain to explore. So yeah, work-wise I'm in a good shape!

The better part? Tomorrow is finally Saturday and I have no schedule at all! I've been craving for this kind of free weekend where I finally get to catch up with my bed :p reminds me of my office colleague's quote "I have a fond relationship with my bed".

Been loving this, I'll go to their concert again. yes, one day:
