corrie tan from the straits times has stolen my reviewginity!
she awarded me 3.5/5 stars! :D (democracy, peace, a bit of progress, without equality and justice)
"...his work picks and prods at the seams of Singaporean-ness, not always effectively, but with a blend of cheerfulness and cynicism that is difficult to resist."
she also makes an interesting case for creative writing within the inherently restrictive nature of the sonnet form being a metaphor for "the many liberties we still manage to take within the unbending structure of our country". not from my lips!
a singaporean poet with an unhealthy addiction to forms.
