Jane The Capricorn (Very True leh ... haha...)

A cool and quiet woman. Once she is mad she can be very fierce.

In her opinion, woman is not just a flower or decoration at home or at an office.

She likes to control and hide her weak emotions. She will never try to change anyone, but she will learn to accept them as they are. If she does not like someone, she will not comments or criticize but she will completely ignore that person.

She hate plastic and an artificial flower because it make her feel that you are not being sincere. She loves real flower and it's scent. She loves a guy who wear after shave cologne. If you are a type of a guy who wear your Jean one month before washing, or wear an old sneaker, then you can forget about her.

She loves music and nature even there is a rare case otherwise. She loves to go picnic in nature, so if you don't have so much time for her, you can take her fishing too.

She is not as jealous as Aquarius or Leo woman, but do not cross the line O.K. Better not to see she gets mad, especially in front of public when she feels like loosing face.

She has her own goal in life and does not care if you have a doctorate degree or not, if she thinks you are not bright then she will not care about you at all. She likes smart people by character not by certificate shown.

She does not like a dreamer who talk about his dream but never put his hands in action to make it happens. Don't bother to tell her "everyone is doing it, you should do it too", or "I think you should do it, it's good for you", because she will do what she wants to do only.

She is a cool type and will not nag, so easy on your ears. She is a slow but sure type. She will always respect and honor you and will never try to make you loose your face. If she loves you, she will help you in anything you do.

She likes to help people and expect nothing in return. If she asks you for a favor and does not get one, she will feel very disappoint. She has a high hope and a high faith and beliefs in her own confident than believing in "Luck".

"The Shadow Of The Wind" by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Translated by Lucia Graves

This is a Gothic thriller set in 20th century Barcelona after world war II. It is written by a Spanish writer whom by far only this novel had been translated among all his other stories. (Which i think is a pity) It depict of how a boy, Daniel who is a bookseller's son since the age of ten laid his devotion to unveil the mystery of the dark and love life of the author (Julian Carax) of a book named 'The Shadow of The Wind' when his father brought him to The Cemetery Of Forgotten Books.

This book is engulfed with many flavors. Tragedy, romance, humor, witty, thrilling and aesthetic background to the imagination of readers. An epic story of murder, madness and doomed love. Readers will feel romantic and heartache for Daniel and Julian love life. I feel that this is a mixture of plot of Romeo & Juliet, Don Juan and Lei Yu (雷雨).

I believe every book lovers would love this story if they like this phrase from the book, "Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens." Well that is just my perception.

After reading it, I have developed an interest and hoped to be able to visit Barcelona some day to explore their cultures, Gothic architecture and sculptures...
