istana

Strange Brew

Thanks mostly to Dave Chua, who filled up all the paperwork for the nominations, was amongst the recipients for this years YAA, which meant a visit to the Istana for the first time ever. Didn’t get to see much of the grounds though cos they were running on a tight schedule :p

Dad and Grandpa and Mom were there…

And I got to meet the president for the first time! Later on he even mailed me a copy of his book. Does this mean I can park outside his house willy nilly now? :p

The award itself was under the Literary Arts category, which feels a bit odd; but then comics does combine both images and text, so maybe its hard to call it either way. David Mazzuchelli would probably say Everything Is A Drawing though :p
