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?”


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.
