“Classy humour and wit at their best.
Packed with page-turning surprises, her words spring from the pages as if we are there witnessing all these comic incidents along with her. Melodiously entertaining, loving this written gem from our very own “little soprano”.
– Maestro Jeremy Monteiro, Jazz Musician & Recipient of Singapore’s Cultural Medallion.
“From chauffeurs, national servicemen to retired maestros, Christina paints a very funny, honest and searingly sincere look at the wonderful foibles that make us laugh, cry and ultimately feel human.”
– Reuben Lai, Tenor & Co-Artistic Director of L’arietta Productions.
“OMG… I’m in fits of laughter after reading each vignette!
Through “Yoda” from Star Wars, to the overwhelming fumes of “five litres of perfume”… thank you for the continual belly laughs! I don’t want it to end!”
– Carla Jane Heard, Educator.
Welcome to a world where nothing ever happens as intended!
Fresh off her success with Diary of a Former Covidiot, Christina takes us through her own nostalgic origin story.
