About meI'm a bayou-born Cajun from Cut Off, Louisiana (real name place and has nothing do to with cutting things off but more about things cut off). I've been in Singapore and Malaysia since 1989… a two year move just kind of dragged on. Though I love nasi-lemak, it's still not as good as jambalaya... luckily, thanks to my Dad, I know how to cook Cajun food. Here's my Gumbo Recipe.
About my libraryMy library is my current library. Not my library when I was younger... or older. I've gone through many libraries and my books of yesterday seemed to have vanished from my shelves. I'm not sure where they ended up, whether they just turned to dust or sneaked off to be with other books on other shelves. I need a book dog to keep my flock of books in order. I'm beginning to think books are wild beasts and cannot be tamed.
