Scribbles from the Same Island
Sequel from Notes From an Even Smaller Island
Singapore's most famous Toa Payoh HDB flat-dwelling ang moh, Neil Humphreys is back with more 'Scribbles from the Same Island'. He is not rich, doesn't own a condo, and doesn't have many expat privileges, but nonetheless manages to remain the same funny bloke happily living in the heartlands of Toa Payoh.
One year after his best-selling, 'Notes From An Even Smaller Island' had the whole of Singapore laughing helplessly, Neil Humphreys is still madly in love with his humble but stimulating existence on the sunny island of Singapore. So much, in fact, that he now makes a living poking gentle fun at every oddball aspect of Singaporean life. Expect to find more of his take on SPG, sex, doctors, toilets, farecards ...... all seemingly innocuous subjects but made hilarious through his witty observations. Nothing is safe from Neil's humorous scrutiny. Not even the unsuspecting creatures at the zoo, and certainly not the bawdy nightlife at Geylang.
'Scribbles From The Same Island' is a collection of Neil Humphreys' column that was first published in WEEKEND TODAY on life in Singapore. Also included are several short stories specially written for this book. The 38 pieces of writing take a humorous look at how a foreigner adapts and copes with life in the lion city as well as the regular Singaporean's reaction to his behaviour.
