Malaysia Sunset by Damyanti Biswas

About Damyanti Biswas:

Damyanti Biswas “loves books, animals, people, often in that order.” She’s an “Author, Blogger, Conversation-starter.” She is of Indian descent and currently lives in Singapore.

“When not nose deep (reading/writing) a book, you can find her pottering about with her plants or her aquariums, or baking up a storm. She would gratefully accept gifts of chocolate, green tea and travel vouchers. Compassion is her only religion, and sleep her favorite (and much needed) form of therapy.”

Damyanti offered a Malaysian sunset for the August feature, and I immediately searched for information on her blog site Daily (w)rite

She has published short stories in the US, UK, Singapore, India and Malaysia.

“Her debut novel in progress has received a grant from the Singapore National Arts Council, and has been long listed for the Mslexia Novel Competition, the Flash500 Novel Opening Chapter and Synopsis Competition, and the Bath Novel Award 2016.”

A very talented writer, her short fiction appears at Bluestream magazine, Griffith Review Australia, Lunch Ticket magazine, The First Line, by New York Writers Workshop, and other journals in the USA, Singapore, and India.

About C.E.Robinson

After years working in healthcare, I retired as a nurse practitioner to be a full time writer, co-author, and blogger. From the blog’s beginning in 2014, Before Sundown has been honored with awards, and blog tours. I’m ever grateful, and appreciative of dedicated worldwide followers who like, comment, share and tweet posts. I started the blog to connect with other bloggers, and in a way to learn more about writing. I also wanted to support other bloggers, friends and family by writing blog posts about them, their books, interests, professions and travels. The collections of sunsets/sunrises on the Welcome page came from bloggers all over the world. I wanted visitors to remember what made you smile Before Sundown. What better way then to offer breathtaking sunsets or sunrises? A monthly featured sunset continues.

        Thanks for stopping by and for the follow. I was checking out your blog earlier today! Wow! You certainly have a lot of interesting pages there. I love your dogs. So sweet. I’m a dog lover, but we don’t have a dog. 😦 The closest we come to having a dog is enjoying our granddaughter’s dog Riley. Well, it started out to be our son and daughter-in-law’s, but Josie and Riley are best buds and she calls Riley her dog. Riley is fine with that because Josie will play tug with her anytime and as soon as she started sharing her food with Riley, well, no need to say more.

    Thanks again Michelle for your visit and comment! Happy you found the doggie photos. Yep, Sammy & Charley are our fur babies. Glad you are dog lovers, and you have Riley & Josie nearby! Dogs make a difference in a person’s life! Good therapy! Looking forward to reading more in your blog! 💛 Christine (Elizabeth)


  8. So happy to have Michelle meet you, Christine. Michelle and I have been blog-friends for forever, and she’s one of my most supportive and kindest visitors. Glad you have already found things in common!

      Thanks, Jason! Every month I promote a new blogger friend & their sunset, or sunrise! I love supporting the blogging community! I’ve seen some beautiful vacation sunsets on your blog site! 💛 Christine Elizabeth

    Great post! Indeed, Damyanti’s blog is a well worth experience. I’ve learned much there and she twisted my arm to do the April Challenge this year. Another totally rewarding experience! Damyanti’s advice is often so good it’s hard to understand why she isn’t already widely published! 😉


    • C.E.Robinson says:

      Couldn’t agree with you more! Thanks so much for your visit and comment! Damyanti has an extraordinary blog! I’ve also learned a lot from her writing. 💛 Christine Elizabeth

      Derrick, I sent you an e-mail with sone questions before I feature you and your sunset (February). Haven’t seen any posts lately and wondered if you had taken a break from blogging. Need to know where you are now and if you are changing your blog to more of an illustrated travel type. Did you get the email I sent to Looking forward to hearing from you! 🎼 Christine
