I Have a Date with Giddens (I)

As promised, this will be the post "I Have a Date with Giddens" 我和九把刀有个约会. However, I have too many photos to post and I don't want to make the post become too lengthy. I will divide them into 2 parts. Today will be the Part I.

I departed from my house around 6.45pm. I need to go Greenlane to pick up my friend before going towards the destination. I reached the Sin Chew building at Macalister Road before 7.30pm. It's hard to find a parking lot. I need to park my car along Lorong Selamat and walk to the building.

Out of my expectation, the hall is almost full with people. I thought it will be a few and not that many. At the back, the popular staff was selling Giddens' book. We found 2 seats at the 4th row on the left. To me, the seat was good. It's front enough for me to take photos!


Before the talk starts, I went to the back and checked out Giddens' book. Those books that I bought from Taiwan online bookstore were selling there. Most of the books are selling at RM18.90 and RM24.90 nett. For the latest book, there is a 20% discount. To me, it is a very good deal. I cannot get the books in such a low price. I think you can guess what will be my next step. YES, I bought some of them. How many I bought this time? Let you guess, just guess for fun. I will let you know the answer in the Part II post. :)

The talk is mainly about Giddens. He talked about himself, starting from his first book. The talk is quite interesting. Due to the time, he finished the talk and have a Q&A session. Some people asked him questions and he answered all of them.



Before he let the audience asking the questions, he told us he has 3 questions that he is not going to answer. First, why he call himself Jiu Ba Dao 九把刀 (Nine Knives). Second, which 9 knives. Third, where is the idea comes from.


After the Q&A, the talk session is ended. What is coming up next? Yes!!! Time for the autograph!!! This is the most awaited session for me. Yeah..... I have the chance to let the author sign on the books! I wanted to let him sign all of them but they only allow us to sign 2 books at one time. If we want to have him sign all the books, we need to wait. Since he can sign all of them, for sure I will wait. :)

Giddens was signing all the books I have!!!


To be continue...

Next: Photos on the autograph and more.... Stay Tune.

Chobits said...

Wow~ ^^
I am sure you are very happy and excited! Can meet with your idol, take photo and take signature from him, is kinda fun! I also want to meet "xing guang bang" but no chance..sob..T_T

To Limzhi,
Since aunty Dragon said he is 35 years old, then i guess 9 knives is around that age too but it's impossible, coz 9 knives look much younger than aunty Dragon, i think around 28 years old gua.

Anne said...
