This month, we'll be reading the critically acclaimed classic, Animal Farm by George Orwell. Though written in 1946, it transcends its publication date, being especially relevant not just for its many political aspects that seem to always suit the world somewhere, but for another reason. 

Animal Farm is a superb story, set at Manor Farm. One night, all the animals gather together to listen to what the well-respected Middle White Board, Old Major, has to say. He tells the animals about his dreams of Animalism and how he wants a farm without Mr Jones, the mean and careless farmer. Old Major passes away three days later, fuelling the other Animal's desire to put Old Major's dream into reality. After careful planning and preparation, they literally kick out Mr Jones and his wife, and begin to run the farm. The pigs, especially Snowball and Napoleon, assume leadership, and begin thinking about how to improve the farm (renamed by the animals as Animal Farm). 

This will be a very interesting book especially for our own current setting in Malaysia :) 

Happy reading!

  • Youth Convention '08: Dare to be Different

    I personally think that it's difficult to be different in our society. Like..it's the ultimate sin. We have to follow what others do to get approval. That's where we got it wrong. We do not have to prove to anyone that we are worth it. In fact, we only need to prove to ourselves that we are worth it. Why did people laugh when the idea to build KLCC was presented? Because they think it's impossible since no one has done it. What we fail to understand that in order to achieve something, we have to go out of your ...

  • Youth Convention '08

    It was really a great invitation. I was particularly interested in knowing what they were doing. I'm not so much into all the Battle of The Bands and stuff. And based on my previous job, I know that people can pay up to USD$ 3k to go to conventions. So, since Jo has given me the opportunity to go, why not?I arrived at 8 a, which is pretty early. Even the people working for the even looked like they just got out of the bed. But it was realy encourging to see people keep on coming to attend the convention. ...
