Never Too Late… Although it’s History.March 9, 2013 11:09 pm Books, Kids
History was my weakest subject in secondary school (apart from Physics). I preferred Geography because it wasn’t hardwork to imagine the vastness of Earth of which I could travel to and marvel at amazing things and places. I think I can give credit to Geography for the love of travelling heavily carved in my heart now.
Anyway, back to History. Being one of my weakest subjects, what I learned didn’t make much sense then. But they do now. I guess it’s never too late to acquaint myself with the history of my homeland. Why the change of heart? The recent, heart-breaking incident back home has triggered this ‘emergency’ reaction and I take it seriously.
Apart from reading news from reliable sources online, I managed to borrow a book on ‘A history of Modern Sabah’ by K.G. Tregonning from the university library. I’m utterly relieved to find it here. Now I just have to juggle my reading time between this book, my literature review and writing, and reading my novels!
