POPULAR - The Star Readers' Choice Awards 2013 :)

Hi all,

A few months ago, I found out that my book was nominated for the Popular - The Star Readers' Choice Awards 2013 and I was pretty surprised! 

So today, the results have just been announced in a simple awards ceremony down in Kuala Lumpur. Congrats to the top 3 winners for this year's awards, namely Dr. Hjh Siti Hawa Mohd, Marina Mahathir and Lee Chong Wei  in the non fiction category :)

Wow, it was indeed an interesting event for me to attend and having the chance to mingle with some of the well known local authors and hear their stories like Dr. Siti (top winner in the non fiction category), Dina Zaman (top winner in the fiction category) and E.S. Shankar (3rd prize winner in the fiction category)

Although my book didn't get an award this round, just being nominated in the same category with some of these household names is rewarding enough for me.

Besides, there's always a next time!! :)

Congrats again to all the winners!
