Afiq, pursue your creative dreams

That is what he wrote as an autograph in the copy of his book that I bought during his creative writing workshop.
The book is Lovers and Strangers Revisited. I’ve finished it, and it was great. The collection of 17 stories was great, and it captures the essence of Malaysia very well. The lively details of life and emotions were enriching to me. An expat can write the stories this well, why can’t we?
In other words, if you find it in any bookstores, you should buy it!
