Disclaimer: I have a couple of poems in this volume of Lontar.

This was an enjoyable read with a standout story from Alyssa Wong, The fisher queen. Clara Chow's story was also a hilarious take on social engineering in Singapore and I really enjoyed the atmosphere of Michael Janairo's the road to burabod. Great installment of a magazine that will be sadly missed.
