Eiyo friends,
How was your weekend? I had just finished reading a semi-historical novel titled Di Situ Langit Dijunjung (DSLD). And now I would like to share with you my thoughts of the novel.
DSLD is a novel hinged on patriotism, written by Hanna Alkaf and translated by Fahmi Mustaffa, and published this year by Fixi Verso. Hanna Alkaf is a Malaysian writer, who graduated in 2007 from Northwestern University, Illinois, USA, with a major in Mass Communications. Hanna Alkaf used to work for Marie Claire Magazine. Before Hanna Alkaf wrote DSLD, she wrote a non-fiction book titled Gila: A Journey Through Mood And Madness. The book was published by Gerak Budaya in 2016.
DSLD is Hanna Alkaf's first novel. The novel was first written in the English language with the title "The Weight Of Our Sky" (TWOOS). TWOOS was published by Salaam Reads and Simon and Schuster in early 2019. TWOOS received good reviews from its readers and is also listed as one of the best selling English-M…

Ji Chang Wook (JCW) is a South Korean actor. He is one of the hottest hunks in the Hallyu entertainment industry right now. JCW was born on the 5th of July 1987, at Anyang, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. That makes him 32 years old in 2019, and a Cancer guy. JCW has a Bachelor's Degree in Performing Arts from Dankook University. 
The gorgeous South Korean actor once dreams to become an engineer when he was a little boy. But as he grows older, he realizes that he has a passion for acting and decides to become an actor. JCW began his career as an actor in musical theaters in 2006. He then rose to fame playing the leading role - Dong Hea in Smile Again (South Korea 2010 - 2011 drama series). JCW has been promoting himself as a celebrity for more than 10 years now. He has acted in a lot of hit dramas, movies, and won many awards. 
Last October, I have listed JCW as the no.1 Hottest Asian Actor of 2019 in my list/pervious post- Fadima Mooneira's List: 10 Hottest Asian Actors of 2019…

Reading is a hobby that everyone should have. Reading gives you the knowledge, opens your world, enhance your imagination and creativity, and helps you with your language. Reading also makes you a disciplined person and is good for your memory development. That's why we, society needs to develop a reading culture. Authors, writers, book retailers, bloggers, and communities play an important role in developing a reading culture. However, not many people nowadays are into reading.
