Spiffy’s mementoes

A Keepsake of Memories

SpLenDiD SaTuRdAy!!~ 6 March, 2007

What a day Saturday was! I haven’t been rushing like how I rushed that day in quite a while. For one, I woke up late.. well, not really late but I thought I had enough time to go to PJ then to KL in time for Lydia’s booktalk. Boy, was I wrong! It’s bad enough that I was like 35 mins late for the booktalk, the minute I sat down on the chair, the interview that Kenny was giving Lydia ended. Argghhh!! I felt like knocking my head on the wall. As consolation, Kenny said…well, at least u made it just in time for the photo session. Thanks, Kenny but I still missed the interview! Sighh…=(

This time around, there were more bloggers/writers compared to the previous one at MPH. It was very refreshing and interesting to meet Xeus, author for the book Darkcity, and DarkCity 2 (which will be out very soon) and Tunku Halim, author of The Rape of Martha Teoh, among other books, also who’s latest ‘greatest hits’ book 44 Cemetery Road will be out in April. Not forgetting of course, Lydia herself, Eric and also Kenny. Oh, oh…also Zewt that purposely postponed his movie to a later time to come over and get his book signed by Lydia. Ahh..it’s always great to finally meet the ‘face’ behind all the blogging. Heheh… After the interview, photo session and a few autograph signings.. bloggers being bloggers we all sat in an almost circle and started chit-chatting. For more infos on the book talk on saturday, head on over to Lydia’s Book Talk, Borders Berjaya Times Square.

As for me, although I missed the interview…it was a trip well taken because gatherings like these are always eye opening to me. I never cease to learn something new every time! Meeting authors who’ve already had books published are like meeting celebrities.. only in a different genre. These are the people whom I will say are the ‘behind the scenes’ celebrities.. people who worked their ass off to write a good book, then worked their ass off to get it published and hoping that their books will really sell. Some, like Xeus, won’t even want her identity to be shown to the masses! So there, these are the people worth looking up upon, don’t you think? =)

  12. argusLou Says:

    Spif, I WANT to leave my blogsite abandoned as I don’t want to spend time keeping it up. So I’m happy to let it lie fallow, haunted by both dead and living canines.

    I went sledding with huskies recently and fell in love with those beautiful, personable and strong creatures.

    Hey, you can get a Chinese-crested dog, or one of those scary hairless ones, I forget the breed name…

  13. Kenny Mah Says:

    Happy International Women’s Day!!!

  14. gRaCe Says:
