November rain

November rain

In pouring rain
come November
we were playful kids
drenched in muddy fields
little friendly faces
kept us in cheerful company
in season of togetherness

We've grown to smile at life's pose
the graciousness of true love
in pouring late November rains
we abide passionately 
its season of endless memories.

In 2015 I decided to put on permanent record i.e. on the world wide web a historical piece I did while studying history at the Universiti Sains Malaysia at Penang in the early 1970's.   I self-published the writing in the form of a blog called " The First 100 years of Penang Free School" in August 2015.

Historical writing made the fun way

Bintulu Fish Market in the 1970's
One of the challenges I put myself is in writing history  that is fun.  How?  In today's inter-connected world of the Internet and self-publishing and advanced pictorial digital technology that is free, I have endeavoured to optimise its advantages in the form of writing history by combining narrative with images.  A blog created to meet this end is called " Images of Bintulu Before and Now".  It is a pictorial history of Bintulu. I started wring in this blog in November 2010.
