Creating a Photo Collage on ipad

My wife was playing with her ipad last night and to humor me, since I was feeling neglected (it happened when we had babies, too, but an ipad?) she threw this photo collage together, so I forgave her. Two of the top photos are from Indochine, which is celebrating it's 20th anniversary.  Then there was the interview at Kuppa Kopi, winning Popular Star Reader's Choice Award, and various poses alone or with other writers.

Lettres-de-Malaisie


   











Cover PhotoI immediately liked the Facebook page Lettres-de-Malaisie, especially since it had a copy of Trois Autres Malaisie among many other books on its photo page. Trois Autres Malaisie just had its fourth review, the first in a French magazine, too, Petit Futé. 
 
According to the about section, Lettres-de-Malaisie is "La littérature en provenance de Malaisie et de l'archipel malayophone, sous toutes ses formes et dans toutes les langues."

Check it out and like it, too.

Here's a link to the intro and excerpts, and to four reviews of Trois Autres Malaisie in eurasie.net, Malaisie.org, easyvoyage.com, and Petit Futé mag.
Here’s an update to the French blog about Trois autres Malaisie, a link to meeting the French translator Jerome Bouchaud in Kuching, and also to order a copy or recommend it to your friends, especially those who would like to know more about Malaysia or have an interest in Southeast Asia.

Trois Autres Malaisie Reviewed in Petit Futé mag-May-June 2012



Here’s the brief review in Petit Futé.  (Had trouble uploading the PDF page with all the other reviews, eight in all.  This was the first review at top left of page!) 

Multiple Malaisie

Une immersion dans le quotidien et les coustumes traditionnelles des communautés malaise, chinoise et indienne de Malaisie : c’est ce que nous propose Robert Raymer dans ce recueil de quatorze nouvelles agréablement illustrées.  Au fil de ces récits nous est livré le portrait d’une société composite, à la richesse culturelle fascinante, où les communautés se croisent mais peinent aussi parfois a se mélanger.  Un dépaysement rare, au sujet d'un pays dont on parle peu.
  
Trois Autres Malaisie, Robert Raymer, GOPE 18.18 Euro
