The Oath of the Vayuputras by Amish Tripathi (Shiva Trilogy #3)

This is the third and final book in the series and sadly my least favourite. Many portions of the book could have been omitted as it was too descriptive and unnecessary. Perhaps this could have been tailored to fit the movie deal the author had signed or maybe, like all great books, he just did not know how to end it properly. Despite this, the Shiva Trilogy was a wonderful (…) Read more

The Secret of the Nagas by Amish Tripathi (Shiva Trilogy #2)

Just completed the second book in the series. Amish Tripathi definitely managed to maintain the same quality and intensity with this second book. We see the introduction of new characters namely Kartik, Ganesh and Kali. The author has brilliantly brought the characters to life maintaining some aspects of the puranic story and introducing a whole new beautiful storyline. There is also a lot of philosophical discussions surrounding “evil” and a (…) Read more

Immortals of Meluha by Amish Tripathi (Shiva Trilogy #1)

I know I’m a bit late in reading this book but as the saying goes, better late than never! Completed this in three days. What an amazing book. One of those which you can’t put down. I’ve read a lot of reviews about this book. The negative ones mainly talk about how this book is inaccurate. Of course! It’s fiction for God’s sake! This is a lovely book and the (…) Read more

Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering the Art of Manifesting by Dr. Wayne Dyer

Just completed this amazing book. I’ve read a couple of Wayne Dyer books in the past and this is easily my favourite as the topics he discusses are close to my heart. One key message which he emphasizes throughout the book is that divinity is within you. He provides many examples in his life including his encounters and experiences with Anita Moorjani (Dying to be Me), Mira Kelley and John (…) Read more

Goodbye Tiger, Malaysia has lost yet another great

Quoting Lim Guan Eng: The nation lost a brilliant legal mind and the rakyat a fearless “tiger” with an indomitable spirit who stood up for the poor, weak defenceless and dispossessed. Karpal Singh’s death in a car accident has shocked millions of Malaysians. He has been making lots of headlines in recent months with his sedition charge. His biography Karpal Singh: Tiger of Jelutong  was also released late last year. One (…) Read more

The Eping Baptist Church is Amazingly Child/Family Friendly

Zeenee, Saivhes and I were at the Eping Baptist Church (Sydney) for Good Friday today and I must say that we were highly impressed with the church’s family/child friendly facilities. If only other centres and organizations here in Malaysia can follow this example, it would be just awesome! This is a great example of embracing parenting, perhaps even promoting it in organizations. As a parent, we would definitely have no (…) Read more
