.: Ayat-ayat cinta :.

Verses of love.

An Indonesian Islamic romance novel by Habiburrahman El Shirazy. Read 7 chapters of it. So I wasn't patient enough, cheated and skipped over to the last page. Wrong move. The ending almost made me in tears and I have yet to read the other chapters. Perhaps my sister was right ... I have a soft heart. *coughs*

----- :: To my sister :: -----

No. I have not gone mad. Remembered the look on your face when I purchased the novel. Priceless. Although I am fully aware that you have the e-book, I much prefer to acquire the physical version even when the cover is distasteful to my liking. *it's the color* Afterwards, you asked why on earth did I buy it, and I never really responded besides saying that it piqued my interest. Tip - keep on guessing. :)

----- :: To my friends :: -----

No. I have not fallen in love. Wipe that smirk off your face. All of you jolly well know that I'm married to my work.

Self note:: Thank God none of you are aware of my blog. XD

The movie rendition of the novel will be shown this Sunday. Reviews from critics state that it's not as good. Having a high-imagination, I doubt it'll be up to my expectations.

Back at work.

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dearest sister,

I have yet to see or hear of a movie that is better than the book!

Happy reading :D

Wa'alaykum as-salaam
Love Farhana

Kitchen Flavours :: Thanks for coming by.^

W'salam Sister Farhana :: Nor have I! Although LOTR wasn't half bad. So I checked on some spoilers, seems that the movie adaptation is crap. I'll judge on it when I see it. :)

"Happy reading" ... that'd be so hard as I'm really trying my hardest not to cry.
