Ted at 67 Jalan Tempinis Satu.
I was knackered yesterday, so I didn't get to post much.
Anyway, the readings went great! Though I rushed through my piece, everyone seemed nice about it... ("I didn't hear it well, but it sounded great.")
Both Jessie and Saradha read lovely stories from their collection of short stories, Snapshots!
Fairul "Roy" Nizam read some really good poetry in Malay, of which I thought "Merdeka!" was his best.
Sharanya read a beautiful, lyrical excerpt from her WIP novel, and Jasmine Low read some good pieces of writing, with the one I like most the "Man in the Middle".
Also, some people seem to be a little confused over my surname. You'll have to talk to my parents about that, but I can tell you I'm not from East Malaysia. I grew up in Ipoh.
Haiyah. I totally forgot about the Open Mic session. *slaps head*
KG read his poem, "anal" and Patrick Dominique read one about women. They were fantastic speakers.
