[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!

[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!

[Book Haul] Epigram Christmas Sale 2018πŸŽ„

Early December in 2018 Epigram had a REALLY REALLY good sale for Christmas (Hanukkah too IMO) at their HQ office space in Toa Payoh. I decided to kick my hermit ass out of the house one evening to go have a look and see if there was anything I didn’t own yet. Spoiler: there was.

Better Shorts Than ‘Cat Person’ [Literary Lists]

If you were away from the internet recently, let me fill you in.Β Everyone lost their minds over a semi decent short story in the New Yorker about a 20 something college girl having a questionable but short lived relationship.

Long story short, people got upset, people had opinions, and honestly, there are SO MANY better short stories out there that you can read instead of this one. Here are my recommendations of short story anthologies that you can read instead of bothering with that one.Β πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
