Plum Blossom Pole.

And you thought this is a Hong Kong movie fantasy ……..

Tsk Tsk Tsk …..What were you thinking???

You must have noticed that my last entry is a bit “hurried” and for good reason too.

I am in the thick of researching for a book to be launched early next year about Chinese customs practised in Sarawak for the last 200 years or so.

Towards that end, I was talking to a couple of renowned historians highly -respected for their works concerning the Chinese here.

Dr. Daniel Chew and Dr. Paul Yong, both qualified historians are helping us with some aspects of our upcoming book.

And in the course of talking to Dr, Yong, he mentioned a soon to be held seminar to explore MAs in popular Wuxia novels.

So there you go …. … and mind you, this seminar is organised by the Chinese Studies faculty of one of the universities in Singapore….serious stuff, you understand?
