Yeah…….! More book sales at Falim House and on the streets of Ipoh old town……

Wow….. I sold a few books during my visit to Falim House in Ipoh. Surprisingly, I met Chew Beng Hian’s brother, Ignatius Chew who was at Falim House too. And he bought a copy of my book. Before leaving Falim House, I met Dr. Raj Paramjoothy from Klinik Raj and he too, bought a copy of my book as a gift for his young son named Kuhan who followed his dad to Falim House.

You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.

I just took the first step on the night of August 3rd at the Ipoh ACS Alumni Dinner held at Kinta Riverfront Hotel and was richly rewarded.

My first customer that night was a friendly and cheerful lady by the name of Madam Tan Kit Pheng. She need no persuasion to buy my book. Standing at my stall, giving me a very broad smile, all she did was just take a look at my book and declared firmly, “Okay, I want to have a copy of your book!” and that started the ball rolling………………read more
