Words Go

We conducted author talks on ‘The Little Singapore Book’ at several schools as part of Words Go Round, organised by National Arts Council. They included Blangah Rise Primary School, The Winstedt School and Da Qiao Primary School, as well as the National Gallery Singapore. We were blown away by the extent The Winstedt School went to prepare their students for our session. They painted a wall mural of an illustration from The Little Singapore Book, and built a child-size rickshaw from recycled material straight from the pages of our book, right down to the exact colours! Thank you so much, Winstedt School, for that fabulous surprise.

Children’s Season
– Exhibition, party like its 1999, make a tongkang

We were completely chuffed to be part of the National Museum’s Children’s Season. The pages of our books came alive with life-size walk-in exhibits of old Singapore, based on Diane’s illustrations, and collaborations with students from The School of the Arts, Singapore. Complementing it, we ran a bunch of weekend workshops with storytelling and crafts based on old Singapore, as well as how to party like it’s 1969!

Kinokuniya launch
of ‘The House on Palmer Road’

We launched our second book ‘The House on Palmer Road’ at Kinokuniya bookstore at Ngee Ann City in August 2017. Author Mdm Si Hoe S.S. regaled the audience with her childhood stories and even belted out a road safety song, which she learnt at school when she was just seven years old. Let’s just say that was many many moons ago! Thanks Kinokuniya for your amazing support!
