HELLO THERE, I HAVE BEEN AWAY FROM THE BLOG FOR SO LONG. Now I hope to make a come back. How I wish I can keep up with my promise to write regularly here. 

Last night I attended the University Sains Malaysia Alumni Night. I attended the dinner because I was awarded the Tokoh Alumni for being Malaysia First Female national laureate. I have no pictures to go with the story. I try to get some to illustrate the blog. Anyhow for tonight I shall post a poem on the pollution of our river.

Klang River
Klang river is trapped
In garbage stacks
It has lost its track
Under the crowded shacks
The water brushing the floor
A spread on the squatter’s bed
As he lay his tired head
Until they come to shatter his dream
with a campaign to keep the city clean
By the river side
A beggar soaks his suffering
Dropping his coughs
dirt and grieve
Rolling under the bridge
Klang river
Drags on 
its burden
At times throwing questions
Man, did you not see yourselves
In my pollution
Did you not see your sin
In the fish that stinks”
