Book Description: Hot on the heels of the bestselling AS I WAS PASSING and AS I WAS PASSING II is yet another anecdotal gem from a name that has become synonymous with Malaysia and Malaysiana. GLIMPSES is a montage of Adibah Amin’s insightful observations of the contradictory and colourful eccentricities in the everyday habits of Malaysians, before and after the millennium. Although seemingly more outspoken and individualistic compared to their earlier counterparts, Malaysians in the millennium have not shed the unique traits that define them—Malaysians still balik kampong, flock to the airport to see someone off, enjoy bargaining, call strangers “uncle” and “auntie,” and give a big makan to jaga their faces but also because of their naturally hospitable nature. GLIMPSES will provoke laughter and reflections as Adibah truly captures the Malaysian spirit in its wry honesty, making us realise that the more things change, the more they stay the same. About the Author: ADIBAH AMIN is not, as one Sri Delima reader imagined, “fat and bouncy, with a fruity laugh.” She does love Malaysia’s multicultural cuisines, but also enjoys Eastern-style exercise. Friends will vouch, too, that she laughs easily but not fruitily. Her mornings are mostly spent tutoring youngsters, her evenings editing, translating or “scribbling.” Her other joys are books, music, singing, crosswords with a kindred spirit, travel and holidays with faraway loved ones. She lives with her family in a quiet house that bursts into riotous life with clan invasions during festivals. In thoughtful moments, candid chats with friends of different races and creeds deepen her faith in lasting harmony. She is the bestselling author of As I Was Passing, As I Was Passing II and Glimpses: Cameos of Malaysian Life.Taal: Engels;Formaat: ePub met kopieerbeveiliging (DRM) van Adobe;Kopieerrechten: Het kopiëren van (delen van) de pagina's is niet toegestaan ;Geschikt voor: Alle e-readers geschikt voor ebooks in ePub formaat.
