D7 The Refinery is an awesome place to be at during the weekends- you can paint, you can buy books and you can meet new friends. Thanks to artists like Ben Toh, Yenny Ng and Maxinne Xie for organizing these fun-filled gatherings.

It was here too, that I got to tell people, “Hey, I wrote a book about growing up in the 1960s and 1970s in a tin-mining town called Ipoh. Get a copy and read how life used to be for some ordinary folks struggling to have a meaningful existence.”

I am glad I took my book straight to the readers. I was able to meet them face to face, tell them about my book, autographed it and even took photos with them for remembrance. All these gave me a great sense of pleasure and satisfaction as a writer because it gave me a chance to interact with them.

It was at D7 too that some of my readers became my good friends. They read my book and gave me feed-backs and after sometime, we became friends! And some even told me they are waiting for my second book which will be out soon.

Today, a very good friend who started off as my reader even gave me a surprise – a birthday cake. How many writers are so blessed?

Well, I am one of them. Thank you, everyone, for being there for me as I embark on a long and tough journey as a writer.
