Wanna get your hands on a copy?

Epigram is now stocking Oyster Girl.


Finally, I can reveal the COVER for the picture book I have been working on for the past few months. Presenting Oyster Girl, a picture book published by Pepper Dog Press, a Singaporean children’s book publisher. It’s my personal tribute to my grandmother and her story. There will be a recipe for oyster cakes and wonderful illustrations by Teressa Ong, a fellow Hokkien.

My grandmother was a hawker who cooked for customers so that she could feed her family. She was an immigrant from Hui’an, Fujian. As some of you would know, I have talked about Hui’an and the unique ethnic costume worn by the Hui’an women. It’s part of my heritage.

I miss my grandmother and her cooking. This is my tribute to her.

Awards Eligibility

I realised I have no stories for #AwardsEligibility. Mostly self-pubbed work and unofficial shorts set in IPs.

The only stories I think are eligible are:
Fire Heart (Scholastic Asia).
Treacle Blood (The Future Fire)

I am one of the editors for the Strange Horizons Southeast Asian Special.
