Allow me to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting my fledgling blog these last few months. I would also like to thank all the blogs that were kind enough to promote my little corner of thoughts. This blog started out as a project to practice my writing skills and an extension of my Wikipedia Bahasa Melayu articles on issues close to my heart: feminism and Malay literature. In only a few months, Cycads has managed to gather unexpected levels of attention, support and honourable mentions from more experienced members of the blogosphere – I am indeed humbled.
For about a month I will be taking time out from the blogging community to reflect on things past and what lies ahead, and to spend quality time with family and friends, which goes without saying. I will also be busy rehearsing for a charity concert next month, in which I might re-emerge again as a solo concert pianist. But during the break, I will be around to respond to your e-mails and comments posted on Cycads.
Have a wonderful new year, my readers. Hopefully and God willing, we will witness a better year for everybody.
