Teaser Tuesdays: The Joy Luck Club

Below I launch into Teaser Tuesdays for this week, I would like to post a photo taken by Andrew on Saturday at TCK 1920, 1 Utama. This was after the orchid garden photoshoot and we met with Denise for lunch and coffee. Do also check out part two of Andrew's post.

Denise and Yours Truly
(Thanks for the photo, Andrew!)

On Sunday, I was blessed by Mei who is the coordinator of Rejoice, a magazine published by Full Gospel Assembly Kuala Lumpur. I volunteer as a photographer, and occassionally writes (book reviews or ghostwriting testimonies) for the magazine. Mei passed on the gift when I was helping at the counter to sell the mags. What a pleasant surprise!

Guess what's in the colourful butterfly gift wrapper? The yellow sticker says, "We appreciate your contribution. Thanks Alice." (Awww... I'm blessed to be in the team too...)
A healthy treat: Pumpkin floss!

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

Here is page 33 of The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan, in the part where the four aunties (save for the 30-plus-year-old Jing-mei, daughter of one of the ladies who recently passed away) meeting at Joy Luck Club to play mahjong:

Auntie An-mei, who is sitting on my left, spills the tiles onto the green felt tabletop and then says to me, "Now we wash tiles." We swirl them with our hands in a circular motion.
