Currently Reading: The Feng Shui Detective

I am reading The Feng Shui Detective by Nury Vittachi right now. I know i know, i was too late, because this books has been published for the first time in 2000 (eleven years ago!).

what i really like about this book is:  it’s so hilarious, i can’t stop laughing.

There are a lot of puns in English, which makes me curious about the Indonesian version.

Here’s the example:

“… So like when you press ‘enter’ , the printer would simply like churn out a deposit slip-thing with the information you’ve just input. Out it would come. A piece of cake.”

“A piece of cake would come out?” asked Wong.

“No, not a piece of cake. A piece of paper.”

“Then why you say cake?”

HA!

By the way, i’m reading the english version published by Chameleon Press, Hong Kong. And the Indonesian version is being published by C-Publishing in 2005.
