Racket Boy – An autobiography by Philip George

First launch at the Kuala Lumpur Book Fest

The day began at 9 am, greeted by the warm Malaysian sun. With the Book Fest at KLCC Convention Centre on the agenda, anticipation filled the air. The RB book proudly found its place among esteemed companions in the Humanities section, poised to inspire readers just as Elon Musk and Tony Robbins have done.

Before the presentation, I went on my morning run, through the streets of Kuala Lumpur. Each step served as a mental rehearsal for the afternoon’s events, preparing me both physically and mentally.

At 3 pm, Geetha and I took the stage, buoyed by the support of friends like Rajeevan, who has been with me since the inception of the book journey.

The presence of Gerakbudaya and its dedicated team, led by Chong, added a sense of professionalism and warmth to the event. Their meticulous planning ensured a seamless experience for both presenters and attendees.

The presentation unfolded smoothly, with the audience hanging on every word. It was a humbling experience to witness the outpouring of support from fellow countrymen, reaffirming the power of storytelling to unite communities.

After the event, Geetha and I indulged in supper at a local Mexican restaurant, the only blip in an otherwise perfect day. Note to self: stick to simple Malaysian cuisine next time.

Back at the apartment, the evening was spent immersed in world affairs, pondering the implications of recent events in the Middle East.

With gratitude for the day’s blessings, I say goodnight, ready to face whatever challenges tomorrow may bring.
