- Running into Preetam at last week's Hewlett-Packard launch event,
- Prompting me to visit his website and marvel at the usefulness of his Blogout '09 presentation, "Adventures of a Traveling Blogger",
- Leading us to exchange emails about our upcoming travel plans,
- Leading him to invite me to tonight's Singapore Travel Meetup Group's, uh, meetup.
Interestingly, the couple asked me if I knew of any particularly canonical Singapore fiction and I was stumped. I'm not a fan of Catherine Lim, Philip Jeyaretnam's writing doesn't quite strike me as being canonical and Alfian Sa'at's Corridor, which I like, feels premature nonetheless. In the end, I suggested they stick to theatre instead.
It's nice to be able to gab with new acquaintances for something on the order of two hours without noticing the time.
