Winners: Post-a-card-or-letter contest
This contest was waaay too hard : there is a grand total of 4 participants. Only four people who read this blog has snail mailed a card or a letter to someone in August. Speaks volume of the high-tech and instantaneous communication we are used to. Anyway, drum roll for the winners :
Please let me know which of my books you’ll like to have and email me your address (tehlydia at yahoo dot com) so I can mail the book to you. Congratulations, WP and Nylusmilk!
Popular-The Star Readers’ Choice Awards 2010
If you’ve been reading The Star, you would have known that Do You Wear Suspenders? The Wordy Tales of Eh Poh Nim didn’t win a prize. Ah well, you can’t always win, right? Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. It’s part of life. Ask Michael Schumacher or Nicol David or Lin Dan and they’ll tell you the same (though I wish Lin Dan will lose more often to Lee Chong Wei). So congratulations to the following winners :
1st prize : Life: The Malaysian Style by Peggy Tan
2nd prize : Even Madder about Malaysia by Dean Johns
3rd prize : Yasmin Ahmad’s Films by Amir Muhammad
1st prize : Little Hut of Leaping Fishes by Tei Chiew Siah
2nd prize : Map of the Invisible World by Tash Aw
3rd prize : Kirkby : the Life and the Loves by Shaari Isa
