    1. It was hard to get into at first but once you get a hang of his writing, it explode flowers 🌸

    2. Intimacy was portrayed is such a subtle and beautiful manner It's no wonder I can't get my hands on the book now. Shall patiently wait for the reprint!

    3. A surprising, charming collection of love poems. Gwee Li Sui tells his story with the consistent gentleness of rosy vignettes, a refreshing change from the harsher tones of Rozario and Cyril Wong
