It had been a long time since I went for an outing. So last Saturday, I went to jungle trekking with Champ and then breakfast with Yen Yen. Bump into Mr. Raja and we exchange greeting. Training session on Sunday was fabulous, I did a few round of zoomie and it felt great. Mr. Kimi told me he brought back 11 bags of dog food from the previous trial, which made me totally jealous. Anyway, I ought to negotiate with Ms Owner. Since she's working, she should be buying me food, and I mean having steak for dinner.
Have I told you she's an avid reader? She only read fiction, mostly sci-fi, crime and thriller. Never philosophy or anything that will enhance your morale. She loves it when the author actually did a thorough background research on the subject, regarding the historical (war or architecture), geographical location, technology, fire arm and etc. So even she's wasting her time indulging in fiction, atleast she did gain some basic knowledge from it. Like in a corporate thriller, how a geek can trace emails, hack into computers, worm their way through coded password, track complicated movements of cash overseas. Currently her favourite author is Jeffery Deaver. His Lincoln Rhyme series (Book 1 - 8) is about a quadriplegic crime scene investigator.
Overtime, she tends to forget, which book she had actually read 2 years ago. Thus, she came up with a complete reading list and synopsis of each book she had read. When she suspected the book is from a series, she needs to do an online research to track down the right sequence, because most of the time, they will not state it on the book itself. When she came across interesting title from Amazon.com, she will search through the public library search engine before attempting a purchased. When she wanted to purchase, she will check with the bargain bookshop at Amcorp Mall before going to the bookstore chain. More than a few occasion, she found out that she had bought the book at a more expensive price. The most extreme was Harry Potter Book 7. She bought it during the world wide release day at the price of RM99, and now the bargain bookshop is selling at RM39! That was enough to send her banging the wall.
