Why am I started blogging again? Simply because I want to share thoughts, ideas, memory that hardly expressed by speaking. I can share them on other social media such as, Facebook though but the feeling is different from writing a blog post, yeah, I think you got what I meant, the excitement when you finally articulate your ideas and emotions into words. That’s it! And I can hardly find my previous posts on FB…I might spend hours hitting the down button to find my post in 2014.
I’ve been using English to write my blog posts, but still, as a non-native speaker, I can feel a bit rigid in terms of expressions (yea, you got what I meant if you’re learning a new language). We don’t often speak English in Malaysia though, we learn lots of written English and grammars (native speaker learn from sounds then words, second language learner usually learn the opposite way.) Anyway, I’m still learning from mistakes as my host mentioned to me: “We always make mistakes, learn from them, young man!” Cheers, my friend.
