Hot off the press

Hot off the press

Whee! My very first copy of Singapore: A Biography. Now I have an actual book to show off and paw and fuss over, not just the cover art (which is very eye-catching in its own right).

The book will be in Singapore bookstores from next week. Don't let its heft put you off. It's eminently readable, gorgeously illustrated and does not once refer to Singapore as a "little red dot" (although someone's "little red book" makes an appearance, and I don't mean Mao Zedong).

For those of you who placed pre-orders, the books will be delivered to me next week. I'll get in touch with you then.

Mmmmm ... new book smell ...

Yeah, after our tea last night, and then dinner/drinks with a friend, I made my excuses so I could enjoy an early night cuddled up with the little darling (as hefty as it is).

Woke up this morning and didn't feel one bit of regret.

(It must be love ... love ... love.)
