peranakan cuisine
The Peranakans are a Southeast Asian community that established itself in the colonial settlements of the
16th and 17th centuries. Long before fusion cuisine captured the imagination of the world, the Peranakans
were blending Chinese ingredients and cooking techniques with the spices and native ingredients used
by the indigenous Malays, over time establishing a repertoire of recipes avidly followed to this day.
Peranakan food is typically aromatic and spicy and features ingredients that include coconut milk,
galangal, turmeric, candlenuts, laksa leaves, pandan leaves, tamarind pulp, lemongrass, chillies, shallots,
basil and coriander. Asam gelugor, belimbing and mangoes were often added to deliver a tangy taste.

international reits
how to invest overseas and build an international portfolio
Kaiwen Leong, Wenyou Tan and Elaine Leong
244 pp, ISBN 978 981 4561 32 7, S$26.00
Dream of buying an apartment or landed property? What about a luxury
shopping mall, office block or five-star hotel? Such dreams are completely
possible with Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). REITs derive income from
top-notch properties around the world across various industries so buying into
a REIT makes you an indirect landlord of their properties. If the REIT soars, you
soar — and to sweeten the deal, most REITs enjoy tax-free income.
But to invest, you’ve got to know which REIT to pick. This book will equip
you with the tools to evaluate a REIT and simultaneously guide you through the
major global markets. To seal the deal, the book will also reveal true stories
from the investing world, so you can learn from the best and avoid the pitfalls.

Everyone wants to become like Mark Zuckerberg. Put in a sweet business
proposal, get a venture capital fund to breathe life into it, and then start

the mistakes made by the 99 per cent that have failed? Is there hope for a
beginner? What are some secret tips and tricks to make it to the top? Apart
from showing you how to succeed, this book will also reveal true stories of
how entrepreneurs have failed. Follow the correct strategies and avoid the

anyone. Jacky Tai is a Principal Consultant with StrategiCom Singapore. Prior

when in asia...customs, culture
and comedy
Illustrations by trigg
224 pp, 210 x 125 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4561 35 8, S$23.00
When cultures meet, the results are often surprising — and frequently hilarious.
Even as the world becomes globally connected, customs and practices are
preserved in very localised ways. In Asia, where traditions abound, daily life
can be a minefield of misunderstandings as well as a rich source of amusement
and enlightenment. Casting its net over the varied countries of the continent, this
new book takes a fun approach to life in different cultures. Each page introduces
an unusual custom, accompanied by a cartoon drawn by Trigg the artist who
has illustrated all the titles in the celebrated CultureShock! series. From strange
eating habits to unusual greetings and sayings, from disparate attitudes to work
and play to the sometimes bizarre ways of love and sex, this book captures it
all — with a knowing wink.

Designed as a personal journal with a ribbon bookmark,
the ruled pages in these two notebooks are interspersed
with lavish images of beautiful clothing, stunning
jewellery, pretty porcelain and other artefacts used by
the Peranakan people in daily living. An introduction
and short notes throughout explain the unique lifestyle
and way of life of the people also known as the Straitsborn Chinese.

Much of the Peranakan way of life has been handed down orally from
generation to generation. But as the older matriachs and patriarchs slowly pass
on, there is a danger that these unique customs and traditions could disappear.
Nyonya Juleen Shaw interviews the surviving doyens on the aspects that give
the culture its distinctive favour and flavour, and documents them to preserve
the Baba heritage. Covering everything from ceremonies relating to birth,
marriage and death as well as cooking techniques and even handicrafts and
language, this is the ultimate resource on the Peranakan Way.

Stuart Deabill & Ian Snowball
192 pp, 235 x 235 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4408 10 3, S$30.50
Supersonic: Personal Situations With Oasis (1992–96) charts the Manchester
band’s meteoric rise, from playing in tiny venues of their hometown to
250,000 people over two days in the Summer of 1996, as told by the fans
and people who worked closely with the band during these formative years.
The book features unseen photos and unheard stories as the authors take the
reader back to the days of riotous nights, Definitely Maybe, Oasis vs Blur,
the mammoth-selling second album What’s The Story (Morning Glory) and
how over an eighth of the UK’s population applied for tickets for the band’s
record-breaking gigs at Knebworth. This is the real story of the early days in
rock and roll’s last stand.
thick as thieves

STUART DEABILL & IAN SNOWBALL, FOREWORD BY PAUL WELLER
192 pp, 235 x 235 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4398 06 0, S$30.50
The Jam was one of the most successful bands in the UK with album sales of
over 11 million units. The music of The Jam has influenced a whole generation
of kids — it formed a soundtrack of their lives. Thick as Thieves explores just
how influential The Jam was through interviews with the band, journalists,
creatives, unusual celebrities and, most importantly, the fans. The book reflects
the aspirations and celebrations of growing up in the 1970s and includes rare
photographs and sharp insights on The Jam. It is perfect reading for the many
thousands of fans still hungry for more.

Derek D’Souza
176 pp, 255 x 210 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4408 49 3, S$37.00
In The Crowd features images of The Jam from a fan’s perspective, as captured
by avid fan and photographer Derek D’Souza. Most of these images were
taken at gigs and sound checks between 1979 and 1982. The brilliant
photography showcases the best of The Jam’s live performances. Derek was
invited by the band to be the photographer for the Absolute Beginners record
sleeve in 1981. Images from that session in London’s Chiswick Park plus other
unseen images of memorabilia are also included.

Dr David Craig
160 pp, 216 x 135 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4516 61 7, S$18.50
This book is international expert Dr David Craig’s easy-to-read guide that

or dealing with children through to the more serious business of negotiating
a contract or identifying infidelity, he delivers simple but effective tips and
techniques we can all use to see behind the facade and get to the truth. The
book is delivered in an easy-to-understand format, allowing busy people to read
it quickly and intermittently without losing track of concepts. The book steers well

Dr David Craig
160 pp, 216 x 135 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4516 60 0, S$18.50
In this book, David Craig has simplified the psychological methods used so
effectively by criminal investigators and covert operatives to persuade others
to reveal their secrets. He shows how these skills can be easily applied to
benefit in everyday professional and personal situations. These secret-revealing
techniques subtly influence people to share hidden information, and may assist
people working with patients, clients, children or friends who carry a difficult
and burdensome secret. They can also be used to improve business knowledge,
as well as to initiate and enrich personal relationships.

how to be wild like keith richards
50 years of riffs, spliffs, snorting & soul from the original
wild man of rock ‘n’ roll
jack Wilson
160 pp, 198 x 130 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4346 48 1, S$25.00
Jack Wilson takes a humorous, often tongue-in-cheek, look at the man who is still
regarded as the poster boy for bad behaviour. From Keith Richards’ — or Keef as
he’s affectionately known — meteoric rise to fame with the Rolling Stones to his
rollercoaster years of drugs and sex and subsequent mellowing into hip geriatric, no
stone is left unturned as Wilson uncovers the timeless “King of Cool” and his wild,
crazy peers of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

One of football’s most divisive and polarising figures, Alexander Chapman Ferguson
had the honour of being both adored by Manchester United’s legion of fans around
the world, and loathed by more than his fair share of enemies and detractors of
the non-United persuasion. Famous for his animated, expletive-laden rants and gruff
impatience both on and off the field, ferocious “Fergie” earned his stripes as the Red
Devils’ longest-serving, record-breaking manager.

Once refused service in a restaurant because of his colour, Muhammad Ali became
America’s most loved sportsman. Amid a turbulent 1960s America, he marched to his
destiny while other prominent black men were being shot to death in the campaign for
equality. White America had a fear of what it didn’t understand. Islam was feared and
Ali stood tall as a loud and proud Muslim. His refusal to be drafted for the Vietnam War
meant he was denied the right to box for three years at his peak. And yet, Ali went on
to become the first man to win the world heavyweight title three times. His three fights
with Joe Frazier will be remembered as perhaps the greatest rivalry in sport. But it
was his tactical genius and bravery in Zaire against the all-conquering giant George
Foreman that stands out today as his crowning glory — ‘The Rumble In The Jungle’.

252 pp, 215 x 140 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4561 58 7, S$21.50
Thirty stories about ordinary Singaporeans including the author, their joys and
griefs and angers, their strengths and foibles, their hopes fulfilled and lost.
Stories interwoven with that of the nation they call home, in its 50 years of
triumphs and reverses, also of dreams achieved and lost. People and nation,
at their best and worst, reflecting the awesome human condition and the even
more awesome human spirit. Catherine Lim tells these tales with passion and
gusto, in a style that is by turns good-naturedly humorous, joyously celebratory,
quietly reflective and downright critical.

raffles and hastings
private exchanges behind the founding of singapore
John Bastin
256 pp, 245 x 185 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4561 44 0, S$42.00
The founding of Singapore has typically been attributed to the strategic genius
of one man, Stamford Raffles. Frequently overlooked is the part played by
his superior in the East India Company, the Marquess of Hastings. This book
provides an intimate account of Singapore’s founding by drawing on the
personal correspondence between these two men, which they maintained
separately from their official exchanges. Published here for the first time, these
private letters reveal at first-hand the challenges that Raffles and Hastings faced
in manoeuvring within the Dutch-dominated East Indies. Just as significantly, they
reveal the complex relationship between the two men — evolving from mutual
suspicion at the outset to cooperation and admiration, but nonetheless peppered
throughout with backbiting, hidden agendas and the clash of personal ambitions.

communist subversion and militancy in singapore
bilveer singh
296 pp, 227 x 152 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4634 069, S$37.30
While the communist threat in peninsular Malaya was manifested dramatically
in armed struggle with guerrillas in the jungle, in Singapore it was primarily
in the form of united front subversive activities, interspersed with episodes of
violence and assassinations. This new book examines the Malayan Communist
Party’s quest for political power in Singapore in the midst of a raging Cold War
between communism and the free world, with particular focus on events in the
1950s and 1960s. From its close collaboration with the two leading communist
great powers (USSR and China) to its united front strategy of infiltrating student,
trade union and political organisations, the MCP’s activities are related here
in a clear and engaging manner.

Romen Bose
480 pp, 227 x 150 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 438 200 7, S$32.00
Having lost their “impregnable fortress” of Singapore, the British were diverted
to the European theatre of war. How then, when the Japanese surrendered,
did they prepare to return to their erstwhile colonies? This book goes behind
the scenes to investigate the circumstances, events and unforgettable cast of
characters that led up to liberation. Singapore At War contains new findings
which have come to light since the publication of the author’s earlier books
(Kranji: The Commonwealth War Cemetery and the Politics of the Dead, Secrets
of the Battlebox and The End of the War) giving an unprecedented breadth
and depth of perspective to this historical account.

the memoirs of lee kuan yew
Few gave tiny Singapore much chance of survival when independence was thrust upon it in 1965. Today, the
former British trading post is a thriving Asian metropolis with one of the world’s highest per capita income. The
story of that transformation is told in these two volumes by Singapore’s charismatic founding father Lee Kuan Yew:
The Singapore Story, first published in 1998, and From Third World to First, published two years later in 2000.
“Excellent stuff, far better than the normal run of autobiographies, which are usually full
of post hoc justifications. No one can accuse you of unfairness to your adversaries.”

Alex Josey (1910–86) was a British journalist who served as Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew’s press secretary for
10 years. This excerpt is from the introduction to Lee Kuan Yew: The Crucial Years (1959–70), first published in
1971: “More than a political biography, this is a book of value to politicians in other developing states. Most
of their problems are the kind of problems that Lee Kuan Yew has had to contend with. His thinking on these
matters has made Singapore unique as a rapidly progressing developing nation.”

This facsimile edition of Alex Josey’s The Crucial Years contains practically everything
that Singapore’s first prime minister had said politically since his student days at
Cambridge right up to his speeches at the 1971 Commonwealth Prime Minister’s

Asian statesman, this indispensable volume shows how Lee successfully created an
independent, multiracial nation while tackling and solving problems that confront all

his look into the future, his valuations and beliefs, his unswerving faith in the ability
of the average Singaporean to understand what his prime minister is talking about,
and his supreme confidence that Singapore will survive as an independent, if interdependent, sovereign state, and be successful.

Modernization is a vital strategy against centuries of poverty. For success to be
achieved, the ethos of traditional society and the old order must give way to
new beliefs and values (which stress efficiency, law and order, merit through
achievement), and a strong effective government able to put through difficult,
unpopular, but necessary measures. This is the unifying thread of the collection of
Dr Goh’s speeches in this volume. (30 speeches and essays, 1961–71)

colony to its present status as an economic success, offers a glimpse of the factors
that contribute to the growth of a thriving economy. This book is a collection
of Dr Goh’s essays during his years as Minister of Defence. Besides defence,
Dr Goh explores sociological and economic issues extensively. (30 speeches and

Tunku Abdul Rahman was Prime Minister, first of Malaya and then of Malaysia (1957–
70). In this never before published volume, the author — a former journalist, newspaper
director and political advisor, as well as political prisoner from 1976–81 — shares many
hours of his conversations with the Tunku held over two years in the early 80s. Read
about the Tunku’s hopes and fears about the future of Malaysia; and his thoughts on
the elected king, the sultans and the Malays, the Indonesian Confrontation, the issue of
Brunei, the separation of Singapore from Malaysia and the neutralisation of Southeast
Asia. The book also gives riveting insights into behind-the-scenes diplomacy.
Tan Sri Abdullah Ahmad was the editor-in-chief of the New Straits Times and a wellknown Malaysian journalist and politician.

Dr Andrew J. Harding & Dr James Chin
260 pp, 227 x 152 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4561 24 2, S$32.00
On 16 September 1963, Malaysia came into being with the accession of Sabah, Sarawak
and Singapore to the existing Federation of Malaya. This book marks the 50th anniversary
of this notable event in Southeast Asia’s history. The book looks at the experience of
federalism from a number of perspectives, keeping in mind the effects on Sabah, Sarawak
and Malaysia as a whole. Has the bargain of 1963 been adhered to? Has Malaysian
federalism been a successful example of this form of government or has the bargain been
undermined in ways contrary to the original deal in the Malaysia Agreement of 1963?
Professor Andrew J. Harding is Director at the Centre for Asian Legal Studies at the
National University of Singapore, and a leading scholar in the fields of Asian legal
studies and comparative constitutional law. Professor James Chin is Professor of Political
Science and Head of the School of Arts and Social Sciences at the Malaysia Campus
of Monash University. He further serves on the Advisory Board of the Centre for Public

On 9 January 2012, after a lengthy two-year trial, Anwar Ibrahim was acquitted of
charges of sodomy against his 23-year-old aide, Mohd Saiful. The acquittal was a shock
not only to Anwar — who expected to go to jail — but to most international observers
who were convinced he would be found guilty. This book takes up the story after the
acquittal and recounts the events that led to the Malaysian Court of Appeal overturning
the ruling in March 2014, convicting Anwar once again of the charge and sentencing
him to five years’ imprisonment, the final appeal against the conviction in the Federal
Court of Malaysia in October 2014, and the Federal Court’s final decision.
Mark Trowell QC is a Barrister at Albert Wolff Chambers in Australia and has acted
as an international observer for several organisations. He was appointed Queen’s
Counsel in 2000 and practises criminal law.

Lim Kit Siang has been fighting on the forefront of Malaysian politics since the late
1960s. Uncompromising in his mission to pull the country away from systemic racebased politics, he was jailed twice without trial. His persistence saw him and his
followers well placed to participate in the surprising resurgence of political opposition
over the last 15 years. Since 2008, his Democratic Action Party has grown greatly
in strength, and together with its allies, has been able seriously to challenge the
ruling coalition. This book captures the spirit of Lim’s life, and describes the grim yet
gratifying journey that his refusal to compromise on his political convictions forced
him to take.
Ooi Kee Beng is Deputy Director of the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies. Prior to
that, he held positions in the City University of Hong Kong, the National University

After the 13th general election (GE13) in May 2013, Malaysians hoped that the

the public cry for change and reform, especially since it lost the popular vote. But
instead, the BN Government has continued to be arrogant, autocratic and bent on
further politicising the issues of race and religion. No-bullshit writer Kee Thuan Chye
asserts the urgent need for change by highlighting the events and issues that have
arisen since GE13.

384 pp, 227 x 150 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4382 14 4, S$35.00
As World War II came to an end, a period of distrust settled over the world. Southeast
Asia was no different. The spectre of Communism stalked the stage. The threat of global
nuclear war hung thick in the air. The struggle for domination between the Americans
and the Russians came up against the burgeoning nationalism of the liberated states.
In this highly combustible climate, what was going to emerge?
Cold War Southeast Asia examines this watershed era across the entire region, and
in doing so it not only offers a panaromic account of a turning point in Southeast
Asian history, but also illuminates the global ramifications of the Cold War and the
makings of the world order as we know it today.
Malcolm Murfett is Associate Professor in the History department of the National
University of Singapore. A Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, he has held positions
at York University, the University of New South Wales and the University of Nottingham.

Only eight people have been privileged to hold the job of Secretary General

the inside story of the UN while still holding that special office. That man is Ban
Ki-moon, the veteran diplomat and former star foreign minister of South Korea
now in his second term as Secretary General. Because he understands that
the UN is in crisis — and because he fears the reasons for this are not widely
understood — he believes it is time to unveil the truth about the organisation
and explain why its failure would be a catastrophe. The result is a deeply
revealing book about the kinds of issues and challenges whose resolutions (or
lack thereof) will in fact determine the future of the world.

Subhas Anandan is undoubtedly the best-known criminal lawyer in Singapore.
The first volume of his autobiography The Best I Could covered the sensational

on mandatory death sentences and ‘police entrapment’. In this second volume,
the acclaimed lawyer and foremost champion of pro bono work moves away
from depicting gruesome murders and delves instead into the emotions behind
the crimes. Written while undergoing dialysis, the acclaimed lawyer reflects on
life, friendship, family and work — and bares his innermost thoughts through
the cases that have affected him deeply and his struggle with health.

Karpal Singh is widely regarded as Malaysia’s best criminal and constitutional

Tim Donoghue completes the biography of Malaysia’s tenacious and principled
lawyer-politician. A journalist with the Dominion Post newspaper in Wellington,
New Zealand, Tim Donoghue first discussed the possibility of writing this

Born in British colonial Singapore in 1951, Josephine Chia grew up in Kampong Potong
Pasir. Fighting for her right to an education at a time when girls were kept home, this
proud Peranakan graduated with an Honours Degree in Philosophy (reading English
and Philosophy) from the University of Singapore in 1979 and later achieved a Masters
in Creative Writing at the Bath Spa University College (UK). Josephine’s short stories
were published in various issues of SINGA, a Singapore literary journal. After moving
to the UK, she was one of the twelve winners of the Ian St. James Awards for short
fiction in 1992, and the first Singaporean to win that award. Since then, she has also
gathered other awards and prizes for her short stories.

josephine chia
240 pp, 198 x 130 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4398 60 2, S$18.60
The most significant aspect of living in a kampong was its kampong spirit — or
gotong royong. Though deprived of modern comforts like electricity or running
water, multiracial neighbours lived harmoniously with each other in their attap
villages and had a strong sense of community. Kampong Spirit brings to life
the colourful characters of the villagers with whom Josephine Chia grew up in
a kampong in Potong Pasir. The period 1955 to 1965 was also a dramatic
era for Singapore. As the country struggled towards nationhood, the social
and political events of this time and their effects are seen through the eyes
of the common folk. This collection of delightful, real life short stories depicts
Singapore’s history and heritage at a human level.

The title of this biography is a reference to both the author’s mother and the
author herself. The author’s mother, although herself uneducated and living a
parochial existence in a small village, believed in and fought hard to realise a
greater vision — the right to educate her daughter. And the author had to deal
with the challenges of crossing boundaries both geographical and emotional.
This moving tale weaves the lives of both women together, beautifully evoking
the experience of living in 1960s Singapore, and painting in heartwarming
detail, a Peranakan woman’s journey from the bloom of her youth to her later
affliction with Alzheimer’s.

Throughout his career, Singapore’s bestselling author Neil Humphreys has successfully mixed biting wit with
pitch-black satire to highlight the hypocrisy that lies beneath Asia’s sanitised, swinging city. In both fiction and
non-fiction, he has shone a light into Singapore’s darkest corners to create riveting stories that both captivate the
reader and provoke the conscience. Now, in his new novel Marina Bay Sins, he has taken a parang to some of
Asia’s most sacred cows.

Detective Inspector Stanley Low is having a really bad day. His bipolar condition
is already ruining another session with his psychiatrist when a sadistic sex murdersuicide at Singapore’s most prestigious hotel plunges him back into a sordid
underworld he was desperate to leave behind.
As the case spirals out of control, Inspector Low encounters self-help celebrity
couple Yue Liang and Jimmy Chew. She’s a desperate singer willing to do whatever
it takes to break the US market. He’s a motivational speaker embroiled in a financial
crisis. Neither of them can get their story straight. Meanwhile, a South African CEO
cannot control his addiction to Asian women, an elusive Indonesian businessman
plays pimp for exiled military generals, a government minister is determined to
protect foreign ‘talent’ and an imprisoned loan shark pushes Low to the brink of a
nervous breakdown.
Fuelled by his uncontrollable mania, Inspector Low goes undercover once more
and returns to a world that the Asian metropolis refuses to acknowledge: a world
of gambling addiction, crime syndicates, international money launderers, immoral
celebrities and corrupt politicians — all living in Asia’s cleanest city.

“Americans may not know anything about English football — heck, we’re not even sure that short-pants

Underneath Singapore’s squeaky-clean exterior is a dark realm like no other.
Based on interviews with hundreds of prostitutes in Singapore and years of
research, we bring you Pleasure Factory. In the Pleasure Factory, women
advertise pleasure by the hour, but the only real product is pain. The only
defence is numbness. The only comfort is empty hope. But when you have
been sold to the trade by your parents or are trapped by circumstance, even
numbness and hope begin to crumble. Their bodies may not be their own, but
they each have their own story to tell. For the first time ever, discover the lives
of prostitutes in Singapore.

Negative influences are lurking at every corner and money can buy anything.
For everything else, there is the Internet. Want friends? Join an online cult.
Want drugs? Click and DIY. When such disturbing influences combine with an
oppressive pressure to fit in, some teens stick to the straight path society has laid
out, while others stray into dark alleys, only to be trapped, committing crimes
or developing psychological problems that ruin them, leaving their futures in
shambles. Through interviews with youths and research, the authors expose
stories of seemingly normal teens from average Singaporean and Malaysian
families. Hear their voices and understand their mindsets.

The gamblers interviewed for this book all had one thing in common — they
didn’t know what hit them. They thought they were in Casino Heaven and
they, the Gods of Gambling. They thought they were invincible and would
always win it all back. They thought wrong. They didn’t just lose; they got
wiped out and destroyed. But they managed to claw themselves out in the most
unbelievable ways — adopting sugar mummies, selling their kidneys, even
resorting to black magic. But all this only led one way — to hell. For some, it
led to untimely death.

the case of the sydney double murders

344 pp, 215 x 135 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4561 46 4, S$23.35
On 15 September 2003, two Singaporean students at the University of New
South Wales in Sydney, Tony Tan Poh Chuan and Tay Chow Lyang, were brutally
murdered in their apartment. Eight-and-a-half months later, their housemate and
fellow Singaporean, Ram Tiwary, was arrested for their murders. Although
Tiwary proclaimed innocence, he was found guilty in 2006 and sentenced to
life imprisonment. A successful appeal overturned the conviction and awarded
him a retrial, which also resulted in a guilty verdict in 2009. But two days after
the second appeal in 2012, the New South Wales Court of Criminal Appeal
overturned the 2009 conviction and acquitted him. Ram Tiwary returned to
Singapore in 2012 after his release. Was he convicted of a crime he did not
commit? Was crucial evidence overlooked in favour of a hasty conviction? And
who, then, is really responsible for the murders of his friends?

The author of Wild Women Do on crimes committed by females in Singapore

are up to no good and exposed here are cases of murders, sexual demeanours
and fraud. The spurned lover who sets his former girlfriend on fire; the police
staff sergeant who commits a double murder in Kovan; the fatal accident that

Teachers, doctors and senior civil servants used to be considered role models
in society but as in every profession, there are always black sheep who
tarnish the reputation of their peers. Beneath the stereotype of a hardworking
employee, here are cases of people who have committed crimes of a sexual
or perverse nature. Read about the serial rapist who found his victims through
social media; the elderly doctor who was accused of molesting his patient; the
senior civil servant who traded sex for business favours; the female teacher
who behaved inappropriately with the classmate of her 13-year-old son. These
are the stories of the men and women who did not keep their passion under
control, committing crimes of a sexual nature.

Everyone wants to have more money and most of us work hard to earn a
living. However, there are some among us who complain that their money is
not enough but instead of earning their money, they take the easy way and
conspire to cheat and con others to achieve their means. Cases featured in this
book include the owner of a online blog shop who offered bargain goods that
did not exist; the insurance agent who sold her millionaire client a non-existent
premium policy; the four top chefs from luxury hotels charged with corruption
in a S$1 million kickback case; the top surgeon who heavily overcharged her
foreign clients; a syndicate that cloned ATM cards to steal from a major bank.
These are the stories of the men and women who let their love of money get
the better of them.

Love and sex, or perhaps lust to be more accurate, has made many men and
women run afoul of the law. When passion and desire take over rational
thought, bad things happen. Here are some of the cases featured in this
book: a senior civil servant who faces corruption charges for engaging in
extra-marital affairs; a high-flying politician who has to step down in shame;
school teachers and academics who sleep with their students; a straight ‘A’
student who sets a world record for having continuous sex with 251 men; an
undergraduate who posts sex videos of himself and his girlfriend on his blog
and loses his scholarship. These are the people who have been blinded by lust.

Seemingly safe on the surface, sunny Singapore has seen its fair share of
murders that run the gamut from premeditated cases to crimes of passion.
Here are some selected cases from the archives. Read about the “curry”
murder where the victim’s body was dismembered and cooked in curry and
then disposed off. Then there was the maid who stabbed her employer and
yet another who killed her employer’s child. But maids have also fallen prey
and one domestic worker was herself murdered and dumped into a rooftop
water tank.

Often regarded as the fairer sex, women can be just as evil and ruthless as
their male counterparts. In fact, some even consider women more deadly as
they are not above using their feminine charms to get their own way. Here are
cases of women who have fallen foul of the law. From girls who cheat elderly
gentlemen of their retirement funds to a teacher who seduced her male student,
from maids who poisoned their employers to the accountant who stole from
the company she worked for. These are wild women you don’t want to meet.

Moving to a new country to live is difficult. Most people settle down nicely
but a handful don’t get used to their newly adopted home. Here then are
stories of foreigners in Singapore who behave badly — committing murder,
financial scams, vandalism and more. Read about the domestic helper who
murdered her employer, the Swiss IT consultant who vandalised an MRT
train, the Bangladeshi worker who killed his Indonesian girl friend as well
as the Romanian diplomat involved in a hit-and-run accident. Ignorance of
Singaporean law does not save you from prosecution and punishment as these
foreigners found out, the hard way.

It has been said that the love of money is the root of all evil. This is only too
true as we profile cases involving money matters. Tricksters are quick to prey
on Man’s desire to have more money which is why sleights of hand and Ponzi
schemes succeed. Even senior finance managers often succumb to greed
and lust, betraying their employers’ trust to fund their gambling addiction
or to lavish expensive gifts on their mistresses. Whether small-time crooks or
seasoned swindlers, no one is above the law as we find out.

undergraduate and apocalypse survivor. Sanctuary is waiting in Tiong Bahru,
but there are five million very hungry meat munchers in the way. And all he’s
got to fend them off with is his parang and a backpack. Sure, there’s Selina
the crazy girl with the tattoos and Raj the law graduate to help out. But it
doesn’t mean they can’t get infected.
Welcome to the brand new Singapore, where meat munchers and wayangs
roam the land, and you’d better have a weapon ready. After all, when there’s
no more government to complain to, survival is your own problem.

The fourth book in The Advocate’s Devil series picks up where The Devil to Pay
leaves off. In The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, the sun has set on the British
Empire in Malaya, and the blood-red rising sun of Nippon has ushered in a
new era. Life has to go on under the new colonial masters. For Dennis Chiang
and his friends, as for everyone else in occupied Singapore, adjusting to the
change of regime isn’t easy. Dennis is picked up by the Kempeitai but escapes
with help from a totally unexpected source. Then, a ghost from the past returns
in the form of his former flame Siew Chin, who brings with her Communist
Comrade Number One seeking sanctuary from the Kempeitai. Dennis now
has to contend with competing loyalties not just in the romantic field but also
in politics. His old boss d’Almeida has also gone underground to avoid arrest
by the Japanese but continues to work clandestinely for the British. Caught
between the Japanese, the Communist resistance and the British, Dennis
Chiang finds himself walking on a knife-edge between the devil and the deep
blue sea, the samurai sword of Damocles hanging over his head.

gopal baratham
Dr Gopal Baratham (1935–2002) was both a distinguished writer and a prominent
neurosurgeon in equal parts. He was born in the quiet of the mid-thirties, survived in
the turmoil of the fifties and sixties, and in the eighties, found the tranquillity for writing.
Considered a literary light during his lifetime, his oeuvre consists of five volumes of short

gopal baratham: collected short stories
368 pp, 215 x 140 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4351 14 0, S$25.00
This exciting collection brings together thirty-nine of the late Dr Gopal
Baratham’s characteristic and revered pieces. In his usual blunt, strong and
controversial style, Baratham’s socio-political critiques are ‘peopled’ by
characters from virtually every background and class — with their frustrated
hopes, wild illusions and excesses. Paired with a stylistic and evolving narrative
voice, as seen in dialogue that fluctuates from poetic to quirky, this writer’s
ambivalent medium is also his message. Readers are drawn into the depth of
his work, and left with a sympathetic, sensitive understanding of events, people,
actions and the complexities of relationships.

overthrowing an oppressive government. An old acquaintance and government
official promises Hernie literary success in exchange for information on the
‘Children of the Book’. He must now decide between the rewards of political
corruption and his conscience. With passion and humour, A Candle or the Sun
reveals a Singapore far different from the tourist brochures.

Hours after agreeing to marry How Kum Menon, Vanita Sundram is murdered,
stabbed while asleep in her fiance’s arms. More killings follow, and the
reluctant and grieving How Kum is swept up in the police investigation. As
time passes and the murders remain unsolved, several self-proclaimed ‘experts’
muscle in: How Kum’s drunken ‘Uncle’ Oscar with his underworld links; the
unlikely double-act of an American psycho-sexual healer and his matronly
psychic sidekick; and a Hindu holy-man… A political thriller in the tradition
of Graham Greene and Eric Ambler, Moonrise, Sunset enhances Gopal
Baratham’s reputation as Singapore’s most brilliant and controversial writer.

Joe Samy suspects that his wife, Ri is pulling the blinds on him. So he engages
the rough but affable private eye, Sigmund Lee, to track her movements. As
he is led on a roundabout ride, Joe succumbs to temptation himself, first with
a transsexual, then with his son’s girlfriend. Events begin to take a twist for
the macabre as Ri falls mysteriously ill and his son, Kris, submits his body to a
drug peddler while Joe himself tangles with a defrocked priest. As his family
falls apart, Joe Samy, now vulnerable and not so smug, takes a hard lesson
from life on the true meaning of ‘sayang’.

In the southern Province of Guangxi amidst the turmoil of the Taiping Rebellion
and the Opium War, a woman is kidnapped and her husband shipped out
as a coolie to Singapore. Yet from despair came good fortune. Seen through
the eyes of one family, this is a moving story of the scourge of opium and one
man’s plight and rise in fortune in British Malaya.
“A strong story line... (this book) takes us from the turbulence of a China
unmercifully exploited with opium by the western powers in Victorian times,
to the race and clan rivalries of an emerging Singapore and Malaya.”

sarong secrets: of love, loss and longing
200 pp, 198 x 130 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4484 17 6, S$18.60
A delightful collection of 12 short stories that brings the reader into the world
of the Peranakans, or the Straits Chinese, a colourful community in Malacca,
Penang and Singapore. In Sarong Secrets, Su Kim tells more tales of passion
and unfulfilled love, of innocence lost, greed and betrayal, of loneliness and
the search for a sense of belonging, of a unique cultural heritage facing the
challenges of modern times. Interspersed among her stories are photographs
of beautiful sarongs, accessories and artefacts from the Peranakan community.
“Su Kim invites us into a powder room where gossip, sisterly sharing
and heartfelt confession remind us that nyonya women living in a
baba world had to have extra pluck to transgress those social mores.
In Sarong Secrets, she divulges the nyonyas’ colourful idiosyncracies
and guilty secrets with ever so much wit and sympathy.”

Born in Singapore to an English father and a mother of Portuguese, Malay and Bugis
descent, Rex Shelley (1930–2009) spent the period of the Japanese Occupation in
Singapore. Rex wrote his first novel The Shrimp People (1991) when he was sixty-one.
It won the NBDCS’ top prize in 1992. The novel tells the story of two generations of
Eurasians — a people of mixed descent and a result of Western colonialisation —
that spanned from Singapore and Malaya in the 1950s to Australia in the 1980s.
His subsequent novels also featured the Eurasian community and recurring characters
create a sense of interconnectedness between the people and their histories. The People
of Pear Tree (1993) and Island in the Centre (1995) received book awards from the
NBDCS. His final novel A River of Roses (1998) won the first Dymocks Singapore
Literature Prize in 2000. In recognition of his literary achievements, he was honoured
with the Singapore Southeast Asian Write Award in 2007.

one called the priest) was in ‘the force’ and, together with Ma, Eric, and Beryl, her
life revolved around Sunday Masses, school, hockey, Christmases, weddings and
family gatherings, where one danced, flirted with the boys or simply hung around
the bar reminiscing the good old days. But the cold winds of change were blowing.
Political violence and racial riots spilled onto the streets threatening to end forever
the peaceful lifestyle of a fragile community. Against this backdrop of fear and
uncertainty, Bertha is dragged into a deadly game of terrorism and espionage. Only
she can prevent the impending bloodshed of war. But is she willing to pay the price
of loyalty and betray the man she loves for her country?

The short story is a form taken up with many local authors. One attempts to
anthologise the Singaporean short story; featuring twenty-one stories from the
likes of S. Rajaratnam, Catherine Lim, Minfong Ho, Kirpal Singh, Colin Cheong
and Alfian Sa’at. Named to make a dramatic point, this anthology selects the
best from each according to Robert Yeo — an established name in the local
literary scene. At its heart, this one story is not intended to be representative
of the author’s oeuvre but to discover an instance where an author infuses a
story with his or her personality or unique style. The chosen stories are also
varied, individually artistically-crafted, and as a whole, display the wide-range
of local stories.
Robert Yeo is an eminent Singaporean poet, playwright and novellist. A
former lecturer at the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological

The Complete Eh, Goondu! combines — in one volume — two of Singapore’s bestselling
humour titles: Eh, Goondu! and Lagi Goondu. Eh, Goondu! published in 1982 was the
first book on Singlish. It was the first to put in print Singlish words that previously were only
spoken. Eh, Goondu! sparked national debate among government ministers, academics
and the public. Eventually, it was accepted that Singlish was part of the Singaporean way
of life. Lagi Goondu! was the follow-up title with more patois.

Tan Huay Peng
144 pp, 185 x 175 mm, paperback, ISBN 978 981 4561 14 3, S$16.35
The Chinese script, with its many complex strokes, can often prove to be a
formidable challenge especially for the young learner of Chinese — and even
adult learners of the language. In this new volume, over 100 essential Chinese
characters that every beginning learner should know have been carefully
selected and compiled. Humorous illustrations, clear explanations and plenty
of examples all help to demystify the Chinese language by deconstructing the
Chinese characters and showing how they evolved from ancient pictographs
and ideographs to their modern form. Each character is given a stroke-by-stroke
breakdown of how it is to be written. Peng’s Fun with Chinese Characters for
Children is based on the highly popular Fun With Chinese Characters series.

all about true wealth
a book for kids on how to manage money and how to manage
without it
ISBN 978 981 4361 15 6
Some people have plenty of material things and never seem to be happy… and then there
are others with very few possessions, who find absolute bliss in the simple things that life
brings them. All about True Wealth introduces children to Fabulous Farmer Phil and his
Funky Fiscal Chickens who share their secrets of how they can make — and care for —
their own ‘nest eggs’.
all about goal setting
the simple and effective step-by-step guide to achieving success —
for people of all ages
ISBN 978 981 4361 18 7
Did you know that 85% of people don’t set goals for themselves, and of the 15% who do,
only 5% write them down? These people are said to be 50 to 100 times more successful
than the rest of the population. Which group do you belong to? In this easy to read, stepby-step guide for people of all ages, Julie shares the secrets of successful people who have
turned their dreams into reality.
all about choices
the simple programme assisting children to effectively manage their
problems or challenges
ISBN 978 981 4361 16 3
Many people focus on, and talk about, negative things such as what they don’t want,
what they don’t like about themselves and what is going wrong in their world. But when
they focus on the problems, all they tend to see are... the problems! If we want to find
solutions, it is more logical, and healthier to choose to think about positive outcomes. All
about Choices encourages children to develop the valuable habit of planning ahead and
making ‘conscious’ positive choices.
all about attitude
a little book of inspiration and encouragement for people of all ages
ISBN 978 981 4361 17 0
All about Attitude is for people of all ages to browse through when in need of inspiration
and encouragement — to open at random and read a page or two. It encourages the
development of positive attitudes, tackling everything from anger, fear and jealousy, to
gossip, health and creativity. It contains universal age-old wisdom that all effective people
use to achieve their success. If you want your children to thrive in this new millennium,
they’ll need to read this little gem of a book.

the forest fable
Gelyn Ong
64 pp, 250 x 187 mm, cased
ISBN 978 981 4408 56 1
S$18.65
In this enchanting fable of a forest and the myriad creatures that call
it home, 8-year-old artist Gelyn Ong paints a lyrical portrait of nature
in harmony. But when a lumberjack arrives on the scene, the animals
find themselves in danger of losing their home. Through a series of
intricate and beautifully painted scenes, the animals come face-to-face
with the lumberjack — will the trees that give them food and shelter be
chopped down?
This is the remarkable debut of a young artist to watch out for. With a
maturity and vision beyond her years, Gelyn Ong captures the forest
in moving detail, offering a persuasive case for conserving the earth’s
shared resources.

CUSTOM-PUBLISHING WITH
MARSHALL CAVENDISH
complete, creative solutions
for your publishing needs
http://custom.marshallcavendish.com
Our services
Marshall Cavendish provides a comprehensive publishing solution from initial conception
all the way to print and delivery, ensuring your book is produced to the highest possible
standard — on time and on budget. A dedicated in-house project manager will coordinate
the process from start to finish, so you only need to be involved when you want to be.
1. Concept development
Our highly experienced team will work with you to develop the editorial and design concepts for your book,
taking on board your objectives for publishing and your target audience. We will also suggest appropriate
production specifications to complement your book’s content to optimal effect. Mock-up designs will
ensure the creative direction of the book is visualized at the earliest possible stage.
2. Manuscript and content creation
As a globally-renowned publisher, our author and contributor base is international. Wherever needed, we
will suggest and commission suitable authors, photographers, illustrators, researchers and indexers of the
highest standard.
3. Editing, design and layout
Our in-house editing and design team is comprised of experienced and talented creative minds who combine
meticulous manuscript editing and proofreading with cutting-edge design motifs and layout. In our closely
collaborative workflow, client feedback and corrections are welcomed during the proofing process.
4. Press-check, printing and delivery
We will source for the best printer for your project, weighing up the production considerations and cost
factors. Colour proofs and ozalids are closely checked and verified before final print so that ultimate
accuracy is ensured and we commit to having every project judiciously press-checked by a member of our
team. Once printing is complete, we will arrange efficient delivery to your doorstep, even if international
shipping is required.
5. Distribution
For appropriate titles, we will produce a ‘trade edition’ of your book, absorbing the warehousing, marketing
and distribution costs, as well as the cost of extra printed copies. This trade edition will then be marketed
and sold through our international distribution market to give clients maximum exposure and publicity.
6. Digital options
Finally, Marshall Cavendish has a constantly evolving e-book publishing programme and various e-publishing
options are available for custom-published books.
Why custom-publish?
