I am reading your book ‘Honk if you’re Malaysian and find it very interesting and I believe can be apreciated by all Malaysians. I knew about you after reading a local magazine who had article on you and other women who worked after having kids.
Thanks to Popular bookstore because they give 15% discount to members for some books to encourage Malaysians to read more books.
Bravo! I totally enjoy reading your book!
Keep it up!

I’m a 12 year old girl who has just finished reading your latest book Honk! If You’re Malaysian. I have to say my favourite article was ‘The Savvy Shopper’ and ‘Washing The Wife’. I laughed alot when I read The Savvy Shopper! I also liked your last book ‘Life’s Like That: Scenes From Malaysian Life.’ My favourite article from that book was ‘Signing For Service and Mother’s Hospital Stay’. All I have to say is keep up the good work! I look forward to your next book.

I bought your book when I was in Sabah. It’s an interesting book and I
quite enjoy reading it. Most of the things you wrote are mostly about
the way of life in West Malaysia. However, there are some similarities
in East Malaysia.As I am now living in Australia and working in a transport
organisation, Chapter 22 – Wonder gadget to the rescue, is wonderful.
A lot of my Aussie colleagues like it very much. They find it amusing
and true. Unfortunately, nothing can do much about the problem unless
someone invented the “gadget”.
Anyway, thanks for such a wonderful book. It’s enjoyable reading.

I have just read your book, “Honk if you’re Malaysian”.
Thanks very much it is a good read, and really hits the spot, in
recognising what makes Malaysia the great place that I think it is.
I am a resident of Australia but have been a very frequent visitor to
Malaysia for the last 5 years. I am there at least 6-8 times a year.
As I am there for work I spend most of my time in KL. It is a truly
great orld city, made special by the people, as you have defined in your
book. L has all the sophistication of a large metropolis but with a unique
feel of comfort and familiarity, that is due to the people.
My trips to the countryside, on the odd weekend off, have shown me the
beauty of the rural areas and of course the history in places like
All the best and thanks again for a great fun book.

Good afternoon, Lydia. I was reading your 2nd book (Life’s Like That)
during the Chinese New Year holidays and found it to be such a pleasant
read, especially for those of us who are working overseas and who
occasionally feel nostalgic about home. Therefore, it was a pleasant
surprise to find your latest book (Honk …) at the bookshop at KLIA. I
didn’t give it a second thought and snapped it up. I just finished
reading it over the weekend and it was a good read. Keep writing. I’ll
be looking out for your subsequent books.

I just bought your book and in the midst of reading it. It’s very good. I laugh at the part where you wrote MRT. It’s true, we tend to stretch the time.
Thanks for writing such an enjoyable book. Am looking forward to purchasing “Life is like That: scene from malaysian life” . I hope you will write more in the future.

Firstly, c’grats on your most recent book “Honk if you’re Malaysian”.
Personally I’ve never read any books by Malaysian authors, will make
more attempts to do so after reading yours and Xeus’. I’m born and
raised in Malaysia, however I’ve been staying in the USA for nearly 10
years. Only recently I’ve decided to balik kampung for good. I want to
personally thank you for publicly educating and writing the Malaysian
lifestyles into a entertaining reading session. It’s a crash course for
me to assimilate well into the Malaysian life
