A Book-y Weekend
It was a packed Saturday as I was out early Morning till evening. 3 different events, luckily they were all located within walking distances.
Morning, Teck Whye Primary School books launch at Malay Heritage Centre.
Two different titles written by their students and they also acted part of their stories live.

The Golden Rules to Writing for Children - by Ethos Books Featuring authors Chan Wei Teng and Eva Wong Nava, talked about their award winning books, "Murphy, See How You Shine!" and "Open: A Boy’s Wayang Adventure". A nice small and close up sharing session about what made they wrote their books, the responses, and their future plans. It was nice meeting them. :)
Have not read them yet, but definitely in my To-Read Dec list!
This was the first time visiting this bookstore, after seeing it on FB for a while and meeting Waln Ching, the owner at the Writer Fest few weeks back. A cosy and 'wood'y place, feels almost like the time slowed down, especially in a fast paced place like Bugis/Cityhall. Do pay a visit and you might find a book you like!

Luckily our book discussion and signing session was just a road across (literally!). It was our first session after the launch at the Writer Fest, we got some elderly and they shared their own experiences back when they were kids. Thank you all who came!
There is also an on-going exhibition of Asiapac Books, a showcase of their original artwork till 9th Dec. Along with it there is a 22% off all books on their website! Click on the pic below to get One Upon A Singapore... Traders at 22% off now!
