I am a book-lover. I am fond of reading fiction, non-fiction, thriller, suspense, fantasy and other topics that catch my interest. These books that I am buying and reading does not just stay in the bookshelves after I am done reading, for my husband and my sons are reading it too. Seldom that I buy new or firsthand books, usually I buy them on book-sale or second hand book outlets, except for the Harry Potter Series, Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of the Rings and Dan Brown’s collection.
I also have this craze in collecting gadgets, from pagers to pda and cell phones. At the moment, I am saving to buy an e-book reader, for my e-book collections be organized.

I love to sew too, cross stitching became a hobby years ago, but due to hectic schedule I stopped doing it for a while but will get back to it again soon.

My husband is a piggy figurine collector. These figurines he gathered over the years came from different places here and abroad. Some of them were given as gifts.
