4:30 by Yeo Wei Wei
no, there’s no typo in the heading - this 4:30 is not by royston tan.
my friend yeo wei wei has just published a novel based on royston tan’s film 4:30. wei wei’s novel was launched last week at NLB together with two other books, which were also novelisation of singaporean films - eric khoo’s 12 storeys and kelvin tong’s eating air. i just can't wait to start reading the book, but decided to advertise it on my blog first. 4:30 is, i would say, royston’s finest film to date - poetic, and humurous at times. i thought it’s the ideal piece to be turned into a literary work.
wei wei also wanted to send a copy to royston and asked me to contact him. unfortunately, his mobile was off when i called. he must be away or busy with the production of his new film.
so, royston, if you are reading this, please send me your mailing address so that i can pass it to wei wei.
