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 www.damyantiwrites.com
