It's out! Chue Ee Kiam's "Singapore Splendour - Life on the edge"

Category : pub

08 Feb 2007 - I walked in to the museum to discover a signed copy of Chue Ee Kiam's "Singapore Splendour - Life on the edge" on my table. What a wonderful surprise!

Last November, I got a glimpse of the book as Ee Kiam went through the text with museum staff to identify some organisms and make some last-minute edits. I've been waiting for it eagerly since as it was almost ready then!

I was surprised by the final product and have been carrying it around with me, heavy though it is, to let others I meet share a discovery of its wonderful, colourful photos of organisms, scenes of many of Singapore's shorelines and faces of the community captured in the most delightful way.

I have to confess that I've yet to sit down to read the text but already the dust jacket is getting weathered! Once I do, expect reviews here.

Meanwhile, hop over to Simply Green.
