Bukit Bintang which is one of the most famous 
shopping streets in Malaysia. With more than 
five shopping malls within feet of each other, 
this is the IT place for shopping and dining in KL.

cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf.

Hello, everybody. Look at these wonderful photos by Sanaa of her new home, Kuala Lumpur, where she moved recently. Many thanks, Sanaa, for sharing them with us.

I'm standing in for Mary today, as she's extra busy just at present. (Don't worry, she's fine; just otherwise occupied.) I hope you've been enjoying the week at Poets United. Thank you for all the great responses to my latest 'Moonlight Musing' on the dreaded writer's block and how to deal with it. I love getting your input! (If anyone missed it, you're not too late – just scroll down.)

And don't forget to come back on Monday – tomorrow! – for Sherry's interview. As you know, she's a great interviewer and her features are always a treat. This time it's particularly exciting. Believe me, you won't want to miss it! A very popular poet who hasn't been around for a while comes back to share with us an absorbing journey, a great and beautiful adventure. Can you guess?

  2. My internet access may be a bit limited for the next few days, so if I don't read everyone's poems immediately I will when I can, promise! Meanwhile I'm sharing a recent piece that not many of you happened to see.

    Thanks for hosting today Rosemary. I've been gone a little while - babysitting, which leaves me no energy to think or write. But, nice to be back today.

  18. I made a mistake in my post entry on Mr. Linky. The first "Myrna" entry is wrong and I don't know how to delete it.
    Rosemary can you delete it? I asked Sherry but she has not responded yet. I thank you in advance for you help. Really, thanks so much!
