nothing to do with spotting people reading, but...

If you haven't gone treasure-hunting at the Times Warehouse Sale in Hartamas Shopping Center, you should. In fact, you must. I went absolutely berserk there (and now I starve for the rest of the month). Here's my value-for-money grab:


The new fabulously funny David Sedaris book When You Are Engulfed In Flames is 30% off only during sales period, then goes back to regular price. The cheapest book in my grab is Jonathan Coe's 9th & 13th which was MYR1.50. I'm bad at math, but I think my total was an average of MYR14 a book. It's really, quite ridiculous.

Read While Waiting Project explodes later today! I can't make it after all, but Uzair will be there to hunt for you and your book.

PS: contributor positions are always open. I'll approve posting authorization, but your name won't be listed on the sidebar till you've posted!

What is that Mak Nyah book about? It looks interesting.

aiyak June I saw your question so much later. Sorry for the late reply. Mak Nyah is about the studies a woman conducted where she interviewed and surveyed a large number of Mak Nyahs in Malaysia and gathered interesting statistics about their lifestyles, childhoods, histories, awareness of HIV/AIDS, etc. There are also some interesting first hand accounts.
