Salam sejahtera Sharizal, It's good to see you again. Betul tu, sudah lama tak singgah. Terima kasih kerana Sharizal masih ingat nak singgah ke FunnyAccent. Alhamdulillah, Boston cuma mengalami hujan berterusan dan angin yang kuat, itu saja. Tapi beberapa kawasan luar dari Boston ada juga mengalami power outage.

There is a wide courtyard between a building I live and the next building. Three big and tall oak trees grow in this courtyard. On heavy snow days, I love to sit near the window with a cup of hot... Continue reading

It wasn't funny at all when it happened, but now when I think about it and look back at my behavior as the minutes unfolded layer by layer, it was pretty funny. Last Friday evening, Prisca called me to confirm... Continue reading
