First post-GST Silverfish Writing programme!
Our first Silverfish Writing Programme after the abolishment of GST will commence on Saturday, July 14, 2018. Registration will commence on June 1, 2018 (so we can stop collecting GST), and an early bird discount of 10% (from the regular fee of RM1300) will apply to all those who register up to and including 30 June, 2018. The-10 week programme will run every Saturday from July 14 to September 15, 2018 from 10.30am to 12.30pm, at the boardroom of the Royal Commonwealth Society, at No 4, Jalan Birah, Damansara Heights, 50490 KL. (Tell your ride to come after 1.00pm because our discussions always go on much longer).Read More

(Plenty of parking.)Read More

But this time, with a new administration in place, my fears hit fever pitch. Will they let me board the plane; will they cancel my visa mid-flight, does my name sound suspicious, will they rampas my laptop, will they turn me back, will I get picked-on in the streets ...Read More
