My first ever book launch was held at MPH 1Utama today! Many thanks to everyone who turned up! So glad that many shoppers took interest in my speech. The books placed on the table sold out! I hope the same would happen at MPH MidValley this coming Sunday (9th December 2006, 3-4pm).

I have only two pictures taken using my camera. Anyone snapped photos at the event, please share. Thanks!

Congrats Yvonne! I was at Midvalley during that time and I went down to MPH, only to realise you were at 1 Utama! Anyway, congrats for selling out during your launch. Midvalley is also selling your books very well, it’s at No.2 position in the local author’s list. I’m sure it will be a super super bestseller.

Would try to make it. Today, I’ve been diagnosed with having a salivary gland tumor (benign) which can turn malignant. It absolutely has to come out. I’m considering surgery options now. I know 1% of how you feel and I think you are very brave for going through all you have gone through.

Wow, I was at Mid Valley listening to you today, and Its amazing how you can be there standing and giving such a great speech. The book was superb, every page was very meaningful, and now I can’t wait to get my hands on the 2nd or 3rd book you will write.

May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you, and that you will continue to shine for Him. Amen.
