If you can find me in the photo, I am indeed holding a sign that says: “I love kennysia.com but I hate Kenny Sia”.
Totally true. I actually said that to him before I saw the sign. It went a little like this:
Kenny: I went to the Singapore Writers Festival and I didn’t know anyone*!
Gette: I hate you**.
* he was on a panel somewhere but didn’t know any of the other speakers except for Tash Aw.
** I totally wanted to go and make it my third writers festival this year but I didn’t have money or leave days left.
