Click to enlargen the poster! Or you can download it here. The Nanowrimo Kick-Off party will be at the possibility room (level 5) of the central library on the 26th October! Don’t forget to actually sign up in the main Nanowrimo website though. The RSVP thread will be out in October.
What do we do at kick-offs? We have intro to Nano, quizzes, fun and stickers.
If you don’t know how to get to the fifth floor of the central library. You can take a lift, that’s just a video of me taking the escalator and trying to get up there as fast as possible. Starts at 6pm to 8pm but generally for those who have been to the parties know the ‘main’ part of it ends around 7pm and the rest is the major mingling and cake time.
And if you’re not Nanowrimo-ing… JOIN THE ZOMBIE WALK!
There were so many activities happening on the 7th September of 2013. Like, whyyyy. Why was everything happening on that Saturday? Like the launch of the Malay Language Month (Bulan Bahasa), Let’s Play (an analogue gaming convention), open house of Goodman Arts centre with various workshops and exhibitions… Well that wasn’t the only ones but yeah EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING that day.
I managed to get to Ken Liu’s 2pm-3.30pm session about science fiction at the national library. Spoiler alert: It ended around 4pm because people wanted to know MORE. So it tells you how good it was.
TIME TO CHANNEL MY INNER SUMIKO TAN. If you don’t read the Straits Times, I don’t blame you. I’m sure you have other things to do like instagram your food or tweet something. Me too, my friends. Me too.
The only time I read the Straits Times is when I go straight to the Life! Section and scan the pages to see if I’m in it.
OHO I LIE.
Ok, maybe not.
But I do check the comics section first and LO AND BEHOLD, the comics section is now… JUST TWO STRIPS? WHAT THE BANANAYS IS THAT? No. No. Did I drop a page and did my cat eat it? Of course not, that’s silly. My cat wouldn’t eat the paper. It is not that attractive to consume. Was it my imagination that this comic section was now less of a section and more of random COPY PASTA ON A PAGE?
I noticed this phenomenon when they started last Sunday or so when the comics strips were reduced to one page instead of three. Ok. Ok. That’s alright… I think? Maybe the papers had something more important to write about in the Life! section. At least the local strip by Miel was there.
The thing is, I wasn’t the only one who noticed this new thing ST was trying out.
