Sumiko Tan wrote her first personal column as a young reporter in 1994. Over the next 22 years, her fortnightly column in The Sunday Times gathered a faithful readership and made her a household name. This is a collection of her most representative columns over the past two decades, exploring family, love, friends, career, dogs, death, and marriage. The book follows Sumiko's journey from horizon-broadening travels and singlehood woes of the Nineties, to musings about romance and ageing in the Noughties, to an exciting reunion with a junior college friend that culminated in marriage. In the last section of the book, Now, Sumiko explores married life, negotiates her new role as a stepmum, and reaffirms the importance of everyday moments of happiness. Her columns also explore the lighter side of things: whether it is learning to swim as an adult, waxing nostalgic about Yaohan supermarket, finally getting Lasik eye surgery, or the woes of having different air-conditioning preferences from her husband.
