Jade’s Quest Book Launch

On 8 August 2019, I was invited to the Book Launch of Jade’s Quest for Her Heritage at Singapore Chinese Girls’ School. After labouring on this book for half a year, I am extremely relieved and satisfied to see it in print.

On the day itself, I invited my daughter Maxine to join me for the book launch. It was a good chance for her to revisit her alma mater. Maxine studied in SCGS from 2006 to 2015. The Launch was being held together with SCGS National Day celebrations. The timing was deliberate as the book had national and cultural content, having won funding from National Heritage Board and SGBicentennial.
During the celebrations, we got to watch tiny Kim Geks dance to a medley of Singapore tunes. Totally adorable! Squeeworthy shots! But I can’t post photos of minors here! Then, it was on to the Launch, held in the Alice Lee Hall.

I also thank my writers’ group– The Penultimate Stop– for their presence at the launch. 

I have so, so many thoughts about Jade’s Quest inspiration and creation, which I will share soon.
