I sincerely hope the author hasn't attempted to write any more books until the author has thoroughly researched the subject.
My Kiasu Teenage Life In Singapore By Ee Lin See
Mar 06, Eunice Ying Ci rated it did not like it. I am rating this from the perspective of an adult reader and I am likely to have been a teen the same time the author was a teen. The youth that Pei Yi the protagonist describes in her letters is not entirely unfamiliar to me. So when I consider the familiarity of the world she describes, there is still some merit to this book.

It simply made no sense. Written in the form of letters sent from an ASEAN scholar studying in Singapore to a friend back home in Malaysia, it was inane and offensive at times.
First gripe: Since we don't see any replies, often the "letters" make no sense. The character replies to something her friend said without giving any information about what was actually said, making it incomprehensible I wish I could give it half a star.

The character replies to something her friend said without giving any information about what was actually said, making it incomprehensible. Second gripe: There is no growth in this entire book. The character will write "I've decided to stop talking bad about people. Yes, teenagers are hypocritical, but this was just ridiculous.

Third gripe: There is a shaming attitude in this book toward homosexuals which I did not appreciate at all. There were offensive dead baby jokes seriously! There are better ways to write a teenager than that, I would like to think teenagers have some sense. Fourth gripe: The repetition is awful. Whatever minor points the author wants to address get brought up again When the last 50 pages all sounded exactly alike, that's a problem.
The writer doesn't seem to have much talent, I can't think of even one section of this book with any redeeming qualities. Some pages seem to suggest wanting to instill moral values in readers be kind to others, etc and then they go off on horribly offensive, nonsensical and outright stupid other sections. Overall it gives the impression of something written in two hours for the sake of getting a few extra bucks. It's choppy, difficult to follow and a waste for anyone to read. If you are an adult, there are better time wasters out there, and if this is for your child or you are a teenager, please do not lower yourselves to reading this drivel.

Jan 14, Germaine Tan rated it liked it. This book describes a teenager's life in Singapore. The girl,Pei Yi, who left Malaysia at the age of 15, in the story, misses her best friend back in Malaysia. It covers almost all her letters that she sent to her friend during her life in Singapore. It expresses all her feelings during her stay in Singapore.
She decided to leave Malaysia and come to Singapore because of her ASEAN scholarship at a secondary school that she thought was competitive and "kiasu".

This is definitely a young adult book. I found it a bit boring at times, but it did remind me of being a teenager at camp or something.
Kiasu is similar in etymology to kiasi literally, fear of death , and both terms are used to describe similar behaviour. Kiasu or kiasu-ism means taking extreme measures to achieve success, whereas kiasi or kiasi-ism means taking extreme measures to avoid risk. From Deep web, the free encyclopedia.
