Why Do I Look So Happy?

Because Kampong Ah Lee's food is so yummy! Dare I say .....  it's a "delight"to eat!
Last night, MBA and I had dinner with some good friends at Kampong Ah Lee, Malaysian Delight, after we attended a Gifford Lecture given by Terry Eagleton at the Playfair Library in Old College.

While the above picture is of the Playfair Library in Old College, yesterday the room was set up for a lecture and not a banquet. Statues line the room alongside antique bookshelves filled with presumably collectible, historic books. The room is over 190 feet in length and has barrel-vaulted ceilings. It's quite an ornate room; yet, the acoustics are a bit lacking. Thus, you have to concentrate to understand the speaker. 

Yet, with such a fascinating and witty lecture, it was quite a pleasure to listen to Eagleton speak on The God Debate. Known for coining the term "Ditchken," Eagleton has been a dialoguing partner of the New Atheists. If you're interested in hearing Eagleton share on similar subjects, you might consider listening to his lecture series given at Yale in 2009: The Dwight H. Terry Lectureship given by Professor Eagleton.
