A Book Affair; with Chuah Guat Eng

Last Sunday, I've participated in A Book Affair event at Desa Permai Condo with Ai Jou... with the little books we have left to sell. When Ai Jou mentioned that Chuah Guat Eng will be there, I was thrilled! Well, she is one of Malaysia's top author, not forgetting also Malaysia's first lady novelist in English!

Anyway, A Book Affair is a monthly event happening on the first Sunday at Desa Permai Condo. It's part of an initiative by 2 beautiful ladies, Vannitha and Rachel, to promote literacy among underprivileged children and to collect funding by selling preloved books.

We were all located at the community hall and since the response was lukewarm, I got to join in the chat with Chuah Guat Eng! Her topic, Creating stories for fun and self discovery, was truly enjoyable and I liked that she has pared it down for newbies like me to easily understand it.

With Chuah Guat Eng, such a humble lady!
I bought one of her famous books, Dream Stuff, and got it autographed too!
Bought these from Book Bodega
And these from Books n Bobs
All for a good cause! FYI, the first four pics above were taken from A Book Affair.
