Sembang Ngeri (Buku Fixi) by Gina Yap Lai Yoong



okay dah gedabak sangat ni. wkwkwkc.

Joanne, Samuel dan Rehan tiga sekawan mahasiswa filem yang bercita-cita besar untuk maju sehingga ke Hollywood. Kegilaan mereka: menghasilkan skrip-skrip yang menampilkan pembunuhan sadis.

Skrip-skrip mereka selalunya ditolak oleh profesor, yang merasakan ceritanya tak berasaskan logik. Namun, segalanya berubah menjadi menggerunkan apabila berlaku siri pembunuhan sebenar yang mirip skrip-skrip mereka.

Trio itu saling mencurigai. Apabila pembunuhan semakin mendekati persekitaran universiti, keadaan bertukar cemas. Adakah pembunuh NGERI itu sememangnya salah seorang daripada mereka?

Setelah akhirnya tak baca buku, okay tipu dah baca himpunan cerpen Kopi hari tu. kali ini membaham pula Ngeri. kenapa baca Ngeri dulu? sebab Kelabu nak save dalam bas nanti. hewhewhew.

Rebiu saya untuk Ngeri ni, banyak main imaginasi. Ye saya dah boleh teka jalam cerita dia macam mana. Tapi tak boleh pulak nak kabor dekat sini, kan? Nanti tak syok pulak korang baca.

Melalui cover tu je saya dah dapat rasa thriller dia. *pasang background Thiller-Michael Jackson* tak mudah nak karang sebuah buku thriller. Sebab tak semua orang boleh imagine macam mana budak tu disumbat dalam peti ais. Macam mana orang dicucuk dengan dawai. Macam mana tubuh dikerat kerat. Macam mana nak sambungkan tombol pintu dengan elektrik kan? kan kan?

Selain tu untuk penulis bukan berbangsa Melayu nak tulis sebuah novel Bahasa Melayu, memang power gila lah. Pernah seorang sahabat kata, kalau bukan Melayu bagus berbahasa Melayu, dia paling terbaik. eh? wkwkwkwkwcc.

Selain tu, pembahagian watak penting dia memang betul. Memang menyeluruh sampai kita tak jangka siapa pembunuh sebenar dia. Sampai satu masa.......

Tapi secara keseluruhannya saya syak semua tu macam pembunuh dia. Awak syak tak? Wkwkwkwkc. Tapi selepas baca bab kedua dan ketiga saya dah tahu siapa pembunuh dia kot. Saya syak je. Tapi a well done job by Gina Yap Lai Yoong. Siapa yang suka baca horror selain dari majalah Mustika (read : lame) tu boleh la mengarahkan diri anda ke Popular Bookstore terdekat untuk dapatkan naskhah Ngeri ni. Kalau tak pun order online di Kedai Buku Fixi.

Overrated. 6 over 5.

Conversation: Mental Health and Self-care

We had a conversation in the car. 
About mental health in workplace. 
It was a very sensitive topic to me since I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Having bipolar means the depression is worst. The period is longer. Then BAMMMMMM mood swings, anger, eating disorder, grieve, anxiety came along. 

But we were talking about it because I was a high-functioning person with bipolar disorder. I didn't get medication for more than two months now, and believe me, everyday that pass by is just me throwing my body to the wall and breaks like a piece of ceramic and pick myself back again with bare hands. It's hard. 
I didn't get medication, I didn't get counselling, I didn't get psychotheraphy. I was struggling to do self-care, I was struggling to sleep or wake up. It was a battle everyday, and to think about it, I just started a career. I was marching in a battleground every morning. 
Mental health in workplace has been recently a raised topic in Malaysia, since there is s…

My Daily Skincare Routine

Invest in your skin. It is going to represent you for a very long time – Linden Tyler.
I believe in good skin care, makes you least need you make up and you can even have a better, brighter canvas to put on. Having a healthy skin also shows you're healthy and well-hydrated, so yes, drinking water is important. I usually put on 2L of water inside me, forcefully. It makes me visit the toilet often, but seeing my skin glow is just another set of happiness!
I just learned to take care of my skin because when I apply make up, my dry skin looks so flaky and tired. I have to spent more time to look better. I have oily-dry combination skin, which the T-zone is oily, but my sides and cheeks are dry. And very very dry. Drinking water helps me, but I need more than that. 
So every morning, I woke up with a cup of water. Usually ice-cold water. I am not a fan of hot drinks. 
And I wash my face with Garnier Pure Active Matcha Detox Pollution & Oil Deep Clean Facial Foam. It feels so rich …

Buku Tebal Challenge by @BookendsMY

Everyone who knows me know that I am a bibliophile - and I'm targetting myself to read 60 books this year (Follow my 2017 Reading Challenge on Goodreads!)
So on July, a reading community called BookendsMY had organised Buku Tebal Challenge, where we got to read a book, over 500 pages, and post our reviews about the book in any platform. I always loved Goodreads because it allows writer to read comments about their books and interact with them, too.
Follow me on Goodreads!
So my pick for the Buku Tebal Challenge was American Gods by Neil Gaiman.


Check out what I say about Gaiman's American Gods:

Phew. It was a roller coaster ride for two days I spent on this book, ignoring everything that happened in this world just for Shadow's adventure.

I can't find anything that I hate about this book, truly a read that brings the meaning of belief and religion and emotional attachment and detachment, value of life and death to a person, and to believe that something has bigger powe…
