My  dinner tonight.

Kangkung  (water spinach) fried with belacan is a simple Malay dish. I know it does not look that great, but eaten with white rice, it is good enough for a simple man like me.

GM Vugar Gashimov passes away

The very sad news of the talented 27 year old Azerbaijan grandmaster Vugar Gashimov passing was the big news yesterday. I did not want to spread this news until I was completely sure that it is authentic.

Gashimov was clearly not well in recent years and missed a few important tournaments. Nobody knew how serious his health was as he and his family kept it secret as much as possible.

More here. This is a nice pic of him.
