On Saturday I went to the third Mynah Magazine launch!! They also had a really neat panel with several of their contributors that was moderated by the Mynah Magazine editor, Isabelle Lim. 🐦🐦🐦
It was absolutely mad packed and people even had to go upstairs to a balcony seating…!
I took notes as best I could of the discussion and the Q&A after (I’m in the picture, see if you can spot me 👀🎯🕵️♀️) so my notes are not 100% accurate… Apologies if there’s any misquotes or misunderstandings!! 😩
Amanda Lee Koe is one of my favourite homegrown authors and has been for years, so when I heard that she was gonna promote her first novel in SG, I resolved to attend at least ONE of the events!! I ended up going to her last one on the 31st of August at BooksActually.
I took some notes from the mini panel as well as the little Q&A afterwards as I thought people might be interested to hear what she had to say!
I wasn’t planning to buy books but then we were hashtag blessed with enough luggage allowance and since we didn’t really pack that much.. I just let loose. OH NO I SLIPPED AND SUDDENLY ALL THESE BOOKS ARE MINE??
I’ve had the sleepy b*tch disease as my friends call it. I’M JUST SO TIRED. ALWAYS!!!! ☹️ But I spent September in the UK visiting my sister and seeing friends so I tried VERY HARD to read as much as possible (mostly short books that I have not gotten around to reading from NetGalley), AND I changed my GoodReads reading goal because I want the shiny badge. It’s now at 30, and I think I did pretty well. SILVER LINING!
