Apples and Patience

Some excerpt from The Kite Runner.

"How long?" Sohrab asked.
"I don't know. A while."
Sohrab shrugged and smiled, wider this time. " I don't mind. I can wait. It's like the sour apples."
"Sour apples?"
"One time, when I was really little, I climbed a tree and ate these green, sour apples. My stomach swelled and become hard like a drum, it hurt a lot. Mother said that if I'd just waited for the apples to ripen, I wouldn't have become sick. So now, whenever I really want something, I try to remember what she said about apples."


Simple things that happen around us, can be the door to a great wisdom.

Apple pun led to discovery of gravity by Isaac Newton.

Hah, apple je kan (nampak sangat pengaruh ke-tidakmelayuan-nya)

Bila la nak durian ke, rambutan ke yang- to put it in your words -can be the door to a great wisdom.

You must love this book very much, aiii? No?

I search high and low for this book, however, lately, I have no patience to finish a novel. It's too long. And I, who become easily bored, are no longer a suitable candidate for novel-readings.

If you have time, do visit Jeffry Archer. Short stories of course. Or, Roald Dahl short stories for adult. Me, I can breathe the fear on my skin. To that extend.

Owh, how's Genetic?
