New Year, New Place, New Challenges

I've long abandoned The Moon The Stars. It'll still be a part of me but I'm pushing it in the backseat for now. I stopped writing posts in the blog because I just got fed up with it. I was extremely frustrated with myself and the situation that I was in and trying to fight that deep frustrations drained me out of energy. So I stopped.

However, it is imperative that I start writing now, since our livelihood depends on how good a writer I am :). I'm not good, I'm still grappling with words and grammar rules but I want to be good and I strive to be good and in due time I will be good. Insya Allah.

I registered the blog name many many moons ago, I cannot be sure when exactly and I did just that. Registered the only name I could think of and after a few minutes staring at the screen I left it sans any post. My mind was devoid of any writing ideas.

Today, a schoolmate asked me about the previous blog and why in the blog I wrote in English while in Facebook 'Melayu Tulen' is my choice of language. I told him, many of my FB posts were in English and that I was thinking of writing in a new blog. Not exactly answering the question but it was the only answer I could come up with. The truth is, I don't really know.

So, he was the final push. In conjunction with the new year, the new place that we are in (which is just a stone's throw away from the previous abode) as well as with the new heights to be scaled, I present to you, MamaRockstar and her ramblings. This will be the venue for me to practice, to vent anger, to gloat, to say thanks, to be grateful, to be helpful, to be insightful. Above all I hope it will be the venue for me and for us to learn and re-learn.
