    Dear Mike,
    Keep it coming,but I do not know why you turned off the comment, most of us love to chip in a word or two to “memeriahkan suasana !”, or maybe those a***** spam got the best of you ..

    keep it coming for another 59 years, at least

    Happy Anniversary to the dude whose blog I spent two full weeks reading, during a particular Easter holiday in uni, when I should have been doing my final year project. I started blogging soon after that, and have stopped for a while now, but you’re still going strong.
