"I Remember May"

Category : Commentary/may.txt

That's the name of the novel (website down while being moved to China) by my friend Kein Kwok, the guy doing web and 3D design at Chengdu.

"Bittersweet and unexpectedly funny", says the blurb at the back of the book, and I can attest to that. I like the humour and love the ending. It's about first love and memories of old Singapore. It contains three or four stories that intertwine and unfold at a very nice pace, with flashbacks tying the stories together, lending the novel a sepia-tinged perspective.

The dialogue's unpretentious. It's not like he's trying to be an artist; he's just trying to tell a good story. But I believe it must have required creativity, precision, and good sense of timing to try to weave together a narrative the way he did. I couldn't do this in a million years.

Actually I don't why I'm still talking to this guy. He's a PC geek who totally dislikes the Mac. Snake oil salesmen, he calls the guys at the Mac shops (hah hah). Somehow I'm not offended.
