Okay, I’ll admit I am a nondescript former journalist who hates politics and I prefer to hide behind my nom de plume of Tembam, heh heh! As I said I hate politics and am struggling to balance my finances but I am passionate about writing. Missed being a journalist until I discovered blogs. Hope my blog makes a difference.
My taglines “When my Atuk called me Mak Embam as a toddler, I knew he probably meant it as a term of endearment because I was a chubby toddler. His cute grandaughter no less. I am now middle-aged, having morphed from chubby to thin to plump to skinny to svelte and back to chubby. I am a BIG girl and Mak Embam just ain’t so cute anymore.”
What’s so bad about big? There are lots of people who are big and beautiful. Well, maybe not in Malaysia as much as in the West but I know I am not alone. Childbirth, middle age and affluence have taken their toll on my midriff and I have now joined the big leagues. I am also addicted to blogging and suddenly got an idea to blog about the big things in life, like making a BIG scrap book about the good, the bad and the ugly side of being generously proportioned. Also, I might add that I am blogging about the big issues.
