[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!

SG NDP BT 2017πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬ [Book Tag]

Singaporeans love acronyms. It’s a known fact. This year the nation turns 52, which means it’s been 52 years of my dad dealing with, “but if you’re from Singapore, how can you be white?” seeing as he’s so old that when he was born here, he had a commonwealth UK passport.

ANYWAY I decided to make a silly book tag relating to the nonsense you can find on every national day parade. Sort of like a bingo card, but with book recs, if you will.

I’m gonna tag some local authors that I love (on twitter), and then be daring at tag some Malaysian ones too and hope they don’t try to strangle me with their kebaya lol……………….
