I am a retired medical general practitioner. Graduated from Uni. NSW, Sydney, Australia in the 70’s. Graduated with distinction in Masters in English Studies from Open University, Malaysia. I have published a poetry book: Flicking Flame: Poetic Echoes. (Partridge Publisher, Singapore). This book is hardly available in Malaysian and Singaporean book stores. About a year later, I self published my second poetry book, Cloudscape and Landscape: Poetic Echoes, which was sold at Rm 20 per copy. A few hundred copies were sold (in my town only), more than enough to cover printing cost; many were given free to libraries and friends. My third poetry book, with more than a few hundred new poems (mainly haiku/senryu), is now saved in my pen drive. I am not publishing it, knowing it’s a dying genre with dying interest. A poet never retire, even though we may go through long period of darkness and hibernation, but always awake with inspiration, and a new rebirth. I am bilingual. I enjoy reading, writing and gossiping with friends.
