This is a random courtesy lion. This time he’s wearing a mask to prevent H1N1. That’s nice of him. Oh for non-locals, he’s kinda like the mascot to be uh, courteous and all.
But let’s get back to business!
TGX 09 is The Games Xpo! I have no idea why they spelled expo as Xpo but whatever. It’s “cool” to do so, I guess.
This isn’t the TGX but it’s just an amusing ad at The Strip in Suntec, some waxing place. It was on the way to the convention halls there anyway. But yeah, Suntec. I was there to see more of the cosplaying segments and this was on the 4th of July. That was day one and day two was more of the championships. I didn’t go for that one.

Polymath & Crust. 86 Club Street. Ooh-er, I got lost getting there. Was this really the place?

Monday, June 1st, The Pod at the National Library. It was a rather good turn out especially on a Monday evening! The Pod’s a restricted area on the 16th floor there and the staff there had to beep their cards so we could take the lift up.

It was yesterday on the 2nd June at the Iluma in Bugis (Singapore, if you’re not local reading this). And oh man was it insane. The invite said 2pm but it launched at 1pm since I think there were too many people and we were all gonna block the mall’s entrance or something if we waited another hour.
I arrived there at 11.30am.
This is the view from the top when people are moving.

First meeting shall be at Geek Terminal, 2pm on the 17th. You can come earlier if you want… We’ll be editing/blablaing about our WIP novels that we wrote during Nanowrimo 08 to scrub it up into publishable form.
Oh man, is my topic title long but the info on submitting work your work and getting a literary agent AND the young writers’ seminar is under the “more” cut! Got the info from Rozen who got it from NAC, I think.
COPY PASTING GALOOOOORE!
Italics in this font are just MY comments by the way, hur hur.

So, it happened on the 6th October at 6pm. I made my Pa pick me up from work and send me straight to Borders, reaching there around 5.30pm or so and I went good grief at the crowd.

I found this in my email one second after posting in my (more insane and personal) blog.
I don’t mind people reading that other blog (if you are actually actively searching for who knows what!) but it’s rated MORE insane and with a warning that one shouldn’t ever read it while drinking anything for it might make you laugh insanely or something. Heck, I’m BARELY restraining on this so called “serious” but not really serious blog.
YES!!! YESSSSSSS!!! You guys should know where I’ll be today at 6pm in any case.
Ps. I guess I should upload my other review on another book I have before this becomes a Meg Cabot fan blog or something.
I WAS DISAPPOINTED WHEN HER TOUR LIST CANCELLED SINGAPORE BUT THEN I GOT THIS EMAIL A SECOND AGO FROM THE TIME OF WRITING THIS POST FROM BORDERS.
I’M A PRINCESS! YES I AM! Heck, the meaning of Sarah IS PRINCESS ANYWAY.
SO IT WAS BORDERS WHO CALLED HER TO SINGAPORE!!!!! I AM SO GOING TO BE THERE.
But first, I want to buy a new book. The UK covers are absolutely pink and I hatess it. Well, at least for Jinx. I’ll get a new book to get that one autographed, the one with the black cover for Jinx, the others suit the pinkness. SORRY ERA! LOOKS LIKE I CAN’T LEND YOU MY BOOKS YEEEET.
Or maybe I CAN, cause I just need one book autographed… I won’t… I shouldn’t be freakish and ask her to sign my collection…
STOP ME FROM ASKING HER TO SIGN MY COLLECTION.
Maybe just two books… Avalon High and Jinx. Yeah.
So, I got invited by Rozen (Nanowrimo nick) aka Rosemary to the launch! Ravensilvers got invited too and I brought Nefas along with me. In case you were wondering (and I’m sure you are), the book I’m talking about is this book.
To the Irish ambassador’s place!
