About the Book

This anthology of poems is based on personal experiences, childhood memories, travels, work, Singaporean local culture, observations, imagination and an interview. The poems give an interesting angle to the subjects, sometimes funny, but always positive. Quite a few poems emanate from a joy of tasting and eating food. Some poems are about the things we treasure, personal strength and lovable animals. Some poems take you to other countries for a measure of freshness. These poems were written around 2013-14 and 2015-2020. The subjects are precious treasures to me - their sights, sounds, smells and feelings aroused. Some interesting personalities of Singapore are included. By publishing the poems, I hope the reader will be enthused, enthralled and amused. I do not describe the poems at this point in order to let the readers appreciate the poems later when they actually read the book.

About the Author

This anthology of poems is refreshing in some ways as the author writes about things which are uncommon. It focuses on Singaporean culture and takes the reader to some international countries too. Some poems have a sprinkling of French words for added panache and class.
