Singapore Launch of Steep Tea and SWF

Thanks very much, everyone who came out to the Singapore launch of Steep Tea tonight. You were, in a word, overwhelming. Your support, love, and friendship. I am so grateful. I'm just sorry that there wasn't time to talk to everyone properly. I hope we will see one another when I visit again next summer. If you fancy hearing me talk cock sing song about "Raising the Profile of Asian Literature" (10 am) and "Getting Published Overseas" (2:30 pm), come to the Singapore Writers Festival at The Arts House tomorrow (Sat). For those of you who couldn't get a copy of my book tonight, it will be available at the festival bookshop at The Arts House from tomorrow to the end of the festival. Thanks again, Boedi Widjaja, for the cover image and for coming out tonight. Thank you, Anthony Koh Waugh, for hosting the launch at your wonderful bookstore. You are a sweetheart.















At the Singapore Writers Festival, I was a panelist in two sessions.


"Raising the Profile of Asian Literature" with Linh Dinh, Laksmi Pamuntjak, and Eun Heekyung (Eun's interpreter on extreme left) (not pictured: moderator Desmond Kon).


"Getting Published Overseas" with Toh Hsien Min and Alvin Pang, moderated by Fong Hoe Fang.
