I wrote this short story about best-friendship in primary school back in 2015. It’s since been picked up by QLRS (Quarterly Literary Review Singapore) in its latest issue! Second Best Friends can be read here.

It is based directly on my experience of navigating friendship in a girls’ school, where a gift of a new five stones set or your height could determine who was your best friend or not for the day, or month, or year…and the prospect of streaming by results could make or break your friendships.

I also enjoyed the spooky story of spirits at a HDB void deck by Daniel Emlyn-Jones here, in the same issue, as well as fluent poems by Wahid Al Mamun, salmon run and my mother thinks i dream in bengali.
