About the Book

The idea of a collection of short stories from personal experiences and encounters was born following several desert time chats between the author and his friends, many of whom disclosed incidents which were bizarre, ironical, unexpected, or even belonging to the supranatural, stories not sufficiently grand enough to be turned into a novel or movie but which nevertheless could provide food for thought and questions on how we should interact with other persons, both visible and invisible. Most of us believe in destiny, though many of my friends would challenge or dispute the rationale of accepting or adopting any specific religious belief. The stories told in this collection are of necessity fictionalised, but the essence or themes of the stories are mostly based on or related to first hand experiences or descriptions which sometimes could, hopefully, stimulate us to think about life again and whenever we face a downturn, whether we should second guess our choices, decisions, and paths we have taken. Last but not the least, the author would hope that these stories are light enough to digest, but substantial enough to linger on in one’s palate for some time.
