form my school days, long long time ago, i like to read newspaper. without fail, i will read from the front page stories to the last page, everyday. from the hot topics, to editorial reviews, celebrities scandals, sport news, to business and stock reviews, i like them all.
i paid RM0.80 only last time to RM1.20 - RM1.50 now. almost double the cost, will not stopping me from getting them. at least two daily, Chinese and English version each. spending almost an hour a day reading them, still i don't think i manage to digest every single issue inside it. so committed, and it is far more motivated than reading educational materials.
nowadays, i like to go to my hospital's library. it provides me daily 'supplements', i can read all three major languages' newspapers at one time. even the librarian was asking why don't i buy newspapers myself? jokingly, she is bored of seeing me everyday in the library. the librarian even had to stay overtime sometimes for letting me reading the newspapers. my answer, it's FREE of charge mah there!
even we have internet now, there are plenty of updated news and open resources online. still, i like the paper, as in paper'ish' feeling. i like to hold it, flip it, and feel it.
eh, it sounds like i'm insane??? gila???
