Reviews

"This anthology was one of the books I studied for my O Level Literature paper last year. It is also the first book that introduced me to local literature, I didn't even knew stories like these even existed in pages bound with a spine... This book opened my eyes to how much more beautiful this home of mine is. Some of the short stories were really sentimental, some thought provoking, majority, relatable... I really enjoyed it. The terms we have in Singlish being on print is different. Something about that just makes me smile... Worth the in depth study - I would've done it even if I didn't have it for the paper!" - Hazel, from Goodreads
