A Literary Evening - With Felix Cheong

 
Join one of Singapore's most well-known writers, Felix Cheong, as he discusses humor stories from his trilogy of short stories, Singapore Siu Dai. Have a laugh about the way Singaporeans "chope" tables, smile at how the locals queue endlessly for anything from Hello Kitty to bubble tea, and be tickled by Felix's wry observation about our uniquely Singaporean brand of politics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Life in Singapore is good, sometimes even — dare we say it? — absurd. In Singapore Siu Dai, Felix Cheong, with a little help from illustrator PMan, finds humour in the everyday. From our kiasu behaviour to weird geographical boundaries called GRCs and OB markers, no quirk is left unturned.
