Most of you may not be aware that a major change has just occurred with me. My family and I have just recently moved to Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. I have been offered an Associate Professor position with the Special Education Department at the United Arab Emirates University. While it pains me to leave our home, Singapore, for the past eleven years – I also know that we always have to move onwards, upwards, in order for us to be of better service to the larger community, our cross-cultural societies, and the world.
Our eleven years packed into over 300 boxes inside a 20-foot container. Please send positive energies and wondrous juju that all my books would soon find their way into our new home in Al Ain.
Books I Hand Carried With Me From Singapore
This BHE is unique since I have not done any book hunting expedition in our new place as yet. For one, the infernal 45 degrees has effectively discouraged us from walking around and finding nearby book shops or even libraries. And I heard it gets only worse in the thick of summer. Add the fact that we are focusing more on filling our new home with essentials, while waiting for all of our luggage to arrive soonest, with all my books intact.
That being said, I also hand carried with me quite a number of books from Singapore to Al Ain. These are the ones I wanted to keep by my side, with the hope that I will make some progress with them before the rest of their brothers and sisters arrive in the 20-foot container. Here they are!
