In this collection of amusing meditations on Malaysian life and its complexities and contradictions, Lydia Teh dives into the depths of Malaysian life: family, pregnancies, babies, motherhood, hobbies, festivities, daily ablutions, pets and other calamities. Not only has she imbued her stories of homespun ordinariness and nostalgia with a luminous sheen, she also captures the essence of being Malaysian with wit and bracing honesty.

With self-deprecating humour and an utter lack of pretension, her candid tales bring to life the warm humour of Malaysian life in all its treacly sweetness and capture the heart and soul of Malaysia. Her vision of Malaysian life is fresh and funny: fresh in the way it makes you look at things in a new light and funny in the way it occasionally makes you want to cry.

LYDIA TEH is a homemaker who enjoys writing while raising her brood of four. In between cooking for her children, chauffeuring them around and coaching them in their studies, she loves observing the quirks and idiosyncrasies of Malaysians.
