I think you can, not a prob. Just go up to them and put in your name.

Lunch provided some more ar? What a bargain! ;)

Xeus said...

I know, but not open to us lah... How? Maybe Kenny can pass off as 18 years old but I can't! (wails)

If enough adults want it, let the organisers know-lah!

Tunku Halim said...

I think the lunch is extra. maybe RM11 - "there are no free lunches".

I'm more than happy to do a course just for the grown ups if there's enough interest. Maybe we can do it informally somewhere.

Xeus said...

Hmmm, TH, I think maybe tis course should be open to ALL. How about broaching the idea to Eric?

Tunku Halim said...

Mixing teens and you serious grown ups might be a bit difficult. But I can do one for us bloggers and friends. You want to organise? I'll be on the house -"house of horrors" I mean :)

Xeus said...

I think MPH is the best organiser of anything :)

They can have it in the Booker Room of 1 Utama.

Xeus said...

TH, just to let you know I spent half the night at a Xmas party selling the idea of your workshop for underpriviledged kids! The Soroptimist Society will pay for them!

Tunku Halim said...

Sounds like a fantastic idea. If the Society doesn't pay, then I'm sure I can persuade MPH to make it complimentary for them.

Xeus said...

Most cool, I will let the society know! That's very nice of you, TH. MPH should actually do a publicity thing on it as well.

Tunku Halim said...

Yes, do let them know - how many do you think will attend?

Also, after my discussion with MPH, I can confirm that my creative writing seminar is now open to grown ups too!!

Xeus said...

That's so great, TH! Kids and grownups all in the Booker Room, throwing paper aeroplanes at one another! Cool!!
