Busy As A Bee

One thing I like about being busy with work is that I have no time to brood which I am very apt to. An idle mind is a devil’s workshop, so they say. This and the previous month have been an especially busy period with several speaking engagements and working on a few new blogs that I am building.

There are also a couple of entries that I would like to post but have not found the time to write yet. Hopefully, I will be able to do that when I have finished preparing materials for the Disability Equality Training (DET) that I will be conducting in Kelantan next weekend. Right now, it is all a rush as I try to wrap up the preparations before Friday.

In the meantime, do check out the two blogs that I have been working on – Softly Whispering is a photoblog of the favourite images that I have taken while Delicious Food in Malaysia is a repository of food and ingredients that have shaped my appetite through the years. The links for both blogs are available on the right sidebar of the main page.

The other site that I have been busy with is the Asia Pacific Disability Equality Forum. This site is developed by Dr. Kenji Kuno of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). It is a treasure trove of resources on DET and provides a list of DET trainers from eleven countries in this region.

  1. Aww shucks i was hoping you were going to write more on the topic of how busyness keeps you ‘busy’ from the mind 🙂

    Sorry to disappoint. It was more of a post to pimp my other blogs. 😀

  2. lol, i like the photography blog. It got me into searching for blog themes again.

    Searching for blog themes are fun!

  3. I did take a peek at your “Delicious Food in Malaysia” website and the food looks yummy! =) Well, keeping your mind busy is a good thing. =D Anyway, how are you?

    Busy! But winding down. Just waiting to deliver my presentation now. I hope to be able to spend some time building Delicious Malaysia. Sharing about food was, and still is, one of the most enjoyable thing about my blogging journey.

  4. Hello Peter,

    I am a big fan of your blog. I recently came back from an overseas trip to Japan (first time traveling in a wheelchair). My decision to go was actually inspired and reinforced by your Tokyo travel account on your blog. I have an interest in laws, services, supports and lifestyles of people living in disabilities in Asian countries but am struggling to find blogs maintained by people with disabilities in Japan. By any chance, do you know of any Japanese blogs of people with disabilities? Thank you in advance.


    Thanks. I hope you enjoyed your trip to Japan like I did. However, I do not know of any Japanese blogs on the issues you are interested in as I do not read Japanese. Will let you know if I come across any.

  5. Hello, Hisano again.

    I definately enjoyed my trip–it was the best experience!

    But, thank you.
