But, the day has been planned, and it is the arrival of the books!
The expected time of arrival - in the evening. So at around 6pm, I got a call that the driver of the printers are here in Malacca. The books have made its way to this UNESCO listed heritage city.
As the driver wasn't too familiar with the roads, I met them at a landmark place so that I could guide them.
The driver & his assistant seems to be enjoying the ride in historical Malacca, going at a leisurely pace. Well, I guess being in outstation, one can't help but just admire the town.
It was a relatively short journey. And their speed made me relaxed a lil.
Bit by bit, the workers unloaded the books. Again, in a relatively cool leisurely manner. I didn't mind - more time to cool down.
Of course, I was more concerned with what's inside!
It was like opening a gift/ present. Some of you may have felt like this as well before. It was a mixed bag of feelings throughout especially here - I just wanted the books to turn out fine.
And yes, it didn't disappoint. The book looks good from the outside and even the inside. It did have the nice feel to it - paper-wise & colour as well.
I feel relieved. And happy. Finally, the 50+1 Malaysia book has arrived.
*Today is its official release - available online first at The Malaysia Page. It will be in bookstores within the next few days.
In the meantime, there is a Special Offer if purchased online.
And for bloggers, there is also a chance to win a copy of the book! :)
