    1. Hi Chiew Kwang! You can find the details in today’s Straits Times Home section under Science. Currently it can only be bought from Natural History Publications Borneo.

      1. Thank you Chia for your kind reply,so that’s mean I have to buy online from them, or do you have any news that they will bring in to Singapore?

      2. I am not sure about that. You can check and see if the publisher sells the book online.

      3. Sure, thank you very much anyway! On 3 Jun 2016 11:32, “News from Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum” wrote:
