1079: There is no such thing as an unimportant day.

Siglap, Singapore.

THINGS WE FORGET, the book. It's finally here! Enjoy great savings and giveaways when you pre-order it right away! (Update)

You did this! Yes, you. You liked, shared, reposted, re-blogged, tweeted stuff from my blog till it was noticed by the lovely folks at Perigree (A Penguin USA imprint) and now it's a book, a real BOOK.  So thank you!
 I rarely ever come out and ask for anything. Each day I do a note for you and just hope you’ll  enjoy it.  But I would really, really appreciate it if you would help support this major event.

Even if you don’t plan on using it, give it as a gift and inspire, help, cheer someone up. Pre-order sales help a lot in getting the book on bestseller lists, increasing its visibility, and get the publisher to increase the number of first run copies. This really makes a big difference in terms of how successful a book will be. Plus, the better this book does the more I can keep doing what I do with THINGS WE FORGET. This book is currently only $12  USD (25% savings!) when you pre-order and can be shipped anywhere in the world.

To celebrate the release, we are offering a raffle contest for those who pre-order the book. Here are the prizes…

•     1st prize:  Three hand-drawn original  personalized THINGS WE FORGET sticky notes 
•     2nd prize: Two hand-drawn original personalized THINGS WE FORGET sticky notes
•    3rd prize:   One hand-drawn original personalized THINGS WE FORGET sticky note

To enter the contest, email me the online receipt you’ll receive upon ordering the book ( Your name will be placed in a top-secret raffle. Winners will be selected out of a large hat in the presence of a lawyer and my six year-old.
Update: Huge thanks to all the lovely folks who pre-ordered the book. The giveaway raffle is now closed and the winners will be notified within 14 days.
You can still purchase the book at
