Tears have been shed, sleep lost, appetite gone, health suffered. It is time to move on. Ma would have wanted that. I will one day write about my mother.
But for now, I need to work on the next book which is book 7. In case you are wondering, book 6 will be out this year: Fun for Kids in Malaysia published by Marshall Cavendish. It’s a guidebook on where to go and what to do to have fun, relevant for kids aged 3 to 18. Book 5 was Stretching Your Dollars and Sense and Book 4 was Do You Wear Suspenders.
Fans of book 3, Honk! If You’re Malaysian and book 2, Life’s Like That have been clamouring for a new book of a similar nature. You can say the book is half-written as I already have a collection of articles which were published in Yellow Post, the free weekly newspaper put out by Telekom for a short period. I need to expand them and put in more articles.
If there is anything you want to suggest for book 7, please let me know. It can be about a Malaysian idiosyncracy or some people’s annoying traits or some pesky pests (human or otherwise). Any input will be much appreciated.
