Nuri Vittachi's newest book, The Feng Shui Detective's Casebook is mentioned in the Spectrum supplement in this weekend's The Sydney Morning Herald.

I will always remember Vittachi as the author of 'Travellers' Tales' in the Far Eastern Economic Review, a feature page which collects odd stories from the region and publishes them in an engaging and comical format.

Unfortunately, the magazine has made 'Travellers' Tales' a subscription-only option, so the curious and simply outlandishly funny snippets of language and custom in Asia are barred for most surfers. They have, however, a blog called Travellers' Tales (which may or may not be the same thing) so there is some light relief available for readers with a taste for serendipity.
