#BuySingLit Festival 2017

Happy me! I stocked up my personal library with some local Singaporean literature at the #BuySingLit Festival 2017 at Gillman Barracks in Singapore. I've thoroughly enjoyed myself in the weekend of activities dedicated to Singaporean literature, browsing through the books, listening to local authors, talking to publishers and receiving book recommendations from them. It was awesome, AWESOME!

The highlight of my visit was meeting the author, poet, graphic guru, and thinker, the one and only Gwee Li Sui. I am now a proud owner of @gweezilla's (that's his Twitter and Instagram handles) latest HAIKUKU and WRITTEN COUNTRY: THE HISTORY OF #SINGAPORE THROUGH LITERATURE.

I'm lazy... (haha!) so I'll let my Twitter posts do the storytelling of the bookish event.

I also bought two Singapore coloring books and two Malay books at the book festival. I will share about them in another post soon. Meanwhile, happy reading, my friends!
