"From the very start Thumboo's has been a powerful voice - one which lingers and demands attention: each poem contains gems which together form an inimitable filigree of literary excellence."
- Kirpal Singh, Director, Wee Kim Wee Centre, Singapore Management University
"...the poems which strike the deepest chord are those the poet delves into a moment in time and place and brings it vividly alive, plunging the reader, like a bold immigrant, into the embrace of a wondrously new context."
- Stephanie Yap, Journalist, The Straits Times
