He’ll also be at a panel tomorrow with Koh Hong Teng, Dave Chua, Morgan Chu and Sonny Liew – you can congratulate him on the spot and get your issues signed then! The panel will be at the Popular Bookfest Singapore 2011, at Suntec City Halls 601 to 603, and the panel will start at 130pm.
And yes, Sonny Liew won a the same award last year!
