Many thanks to 邱繼學 (Kaye) for coming up with the nice poster above for me! :)
I had a great time in Singapore recently! My heartfelt thanks to all who took their time off to come and listen to my stories :)
And guess who came for my book talk....none other than Mr. Victor Chee, one of the kindest and most generous Singaporean I have ever known!
In order to locate him, I had to ask a good friend, Matt Chia in Singapore to help me find his whereabouts so that I could send him an invitation to come for my book talk.
Luckily, it was pretty easy to find him under the list of Esso stations in Singapore!. Matt made a call at the outlet near Woodlands (which was where Mak and I first met Mr. Victor) and found out that he has moved to another Esso petrol station in the north east side of Singapore.
Matt managed to speak to Mr. Victor himself and told him about my intentions. I wrote to him (after he gave Matt his email address) and he replied! He said that he still remembers me after almost 5 years ago!! He said he will try to make it but didn't confirm so I really wasn't sure that he would actually come.
So when Mr. Victor quietly came up to me after my talk, it was such a nice surprise!! Finally, I get to thank him personally for all his kindness and generosity shown to Mak and I in 2009! I gave him a signed copy of my book as a token of my appreciation and hopefully, he will enjoy reading my stories :)
Ladies and gentlemen, the ever cheerful Mr. Victor Chee!!
Me, signing his copy :)

Date : Sunday, 8th Dec, 2013
Venue : Popular Bookfest 2013, Straits Quay Convention Centre, Penang
