[IRL Adventures] Mynah #03 Launch + Panel

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 πŸ‘€πŸŽ―πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™€οΈ) so my notes are not 100% accurate… Apologies if there’s any misquotes or misunderstandings!! 😩

[IRL Adventures] Delayed Rays of a Star BooksActually Launch

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!

[IRL Adventures +Book Haul] 2018 Down Unda’ 🐨

At the start of March last year, I went for a couple of weeks with my parents to Melbourne and Sydney! We decided to take things easy tourism wise and just play by ear.

Which meant that I ended up dragging my parents to some pretty bookstores and second hand bookstores. And also buying books. Even though my dad shamed me every time, because APPARENTLY, “I wasn’t gonna buy them in the first place but then mum said to go ahead” is not a good enough excuse…

[Book Haul + IRL Adventures] Library Adventure + Childhood Books

A while ago I went to the big main local library to check out some books as well as look at a few embroidery books that were for reference only. I love to cross stitch and even attempt Big Girlβ„’ embroidery as a hobby for a while now but only recently set up an instagram for it, to sort of blog about it in an indirect way, and share the things I’ve made.

ANYWAY I had a lot of fun at the library and following that trip my mum did a deep dive into some storage boxes she was replacing and found some iconic and beloved childhood favourites!

Before I started this blog in 2015, I made it a point to go on a bit of a book crawl so I could make some posts showcasing the indie stores, while I was back home in Singapore.

Didn’t really get around to making more than two of those posts… BUT in the spirit of Indie Bookshop Week, I’m going to feature those bookstores I visited, and in geographical order!
