Time to get a copy of my book

Did you read this article in yesterday’s Straits Times? It reinforces what I have been telling people. Nostalgia is good for health. So, why not head down to Books Kinokuniya @ Ngee Ann City (Tel: 6737-5021) and grab a copy of my book Good Morning Yesterday. While there, get another copy to give to your friend. Together, let us take a trip down memory.


 “Nostalgia activates a number of positive states. Specifically, nostalgia increases positive mood, self-esteem, feeling of social connectedness, and perceptions of meaning in life.”
“Nostalgia is good for people because nostalgic reflections allow them to revisit cherished experiences from the past shared with friends and family. And these experiences make people feel meaningful, valued, loved and happy.”

You can read the above article which first appeared in The Conversation here.
Don’t forget to remember …. the times of your life.

I'm planning to be in S'pore between the 18th and 25th of October. I will be getting your book, and hope to meet you for coffee as well!

I've been happy for a long time now, writing about Singapore's hey-day. Nostalgic episodes are snapshots in the mind. All you need is a pen or the keyboard to make them come to life.
