Dear diary...

How many of you keep a diary?

I did. Yes, used to write and keep diary when I were in my secondary school. Thanks to a teacher who inspired me to write one. At first, the writing is to improve my English composition but as I continued to write one diary to another, my interest in penning down my daily activities grew. 

I kept this habit till I finished my Form 5. When I went to college, I stopped writing because no time. 

Last night I asked my girl whether she would like to keep a diary but she did not show much interest. Instead I told her to draw what she did or want to do.  She done a scrapbook before last year and it was full of her drawings. So drawing in a diary is not a big problem to her. Hopefully she would show interest in writing in the future.

I personally think it is good to keep a diary. A way to express ourselves without telling others and same time penning on something that worth keeping in a diary.

Hello Rose, I used to write a diary and I still keep it. But recently, I thought of throwing it away because I think it's too personal and sensitive. I prefer blogging now.

At least I can control what I write knowing that there are others who read my blog.

My son doesn't know what a diary is. I'm sure he might write a diary one day when he knows how to compose an essay.

Have a nice day yeah?

I used to write diary during my schooling time. I can't remember when I started but I love writing on a diary. I have 2-3 diaries at home. Though my English is not that good but at least we are brave to pen it down. Right now I have another companion - my blog. hehehe....

I used to have a diary ~ a pink perfumed one. It was where I penned my amazing imaginary life as a heroine on some planet, with a love interest to boot. Comes with a lock and key too..lol! ^.^

I used to keep diary last time but not anymore, but I keep a blog right now, so I am more careful in what I write because it is made public, a diary is different from a blog, because you can write any and everything because it is personal and nobody reads it.

I threw away my old diary that time because it contains too many sad things and it is sad to read them once again.
