BE our Let­ter of the Month

Esquire (Malaysia) - - THIS WAY IN -

It’s no se­cret that what we do, we do it all for you. We think about what might make you laugh, what might make you cu­ri­ous, what might make you care. And the best re­ward we get each month is when we re­ceive let­ters from you, our read­ers, who in turn, make us laugh, puff up with pride, and some­times, even—cry (though that’s a very rare oc­ca­sion). So why wait? Write in now!

Let­ters to the ed­i­tor may be emailed to ed­i­tor@es­, or you can send us a mes­sage at face­­quiremy. Please in­clude your full name, ad­dress and day­time phone num­ber. Let­ters might be edited for length and clar­ity.

I was at­tracted by the strik­ing choice of colours used on the March is­sue’s cover, and was even more at­tracted that it’s “The trial and er­ror is­sue”. Of­ten in life, what’s ac­tu­ally not trial and er­ror? We never re­ally know what will be surely right or not, so ev­ery time we do some­thing, or even when we eat, that’s trial and er­ror—we find out what we like, we find out how we shouldn’t gulp down food.

And can I say that I’ve al­ready cut out the page with the recipe for choco­late fon­due and chur­ros? That’s another con­ve­nience that Es­quire brings: I of­ten keep dif­fer­ent notes for dif­fer­ent things in my life, such as food porn, life­style, travel, cof­fee, etc. I very of­ten feel lazy to do re­search on­line for my notes, but I al­ways man­age to get what I want, or what I find in­ter­est­ing, in Es­quire.

One more thing: I usu­ally spend more than a week to fin­ish read­ing the mag­a­zine, but another ar­ti­cle I found re­ally use­ful in March’s is­sue was in the Es­sen­tial of Style pages. I’d say it was a short-but-pre­cise, enough-for-you-to-know-tostart guide!

Thanks to the team’s grade A ef­forts, and thanks for in­spir­ing once again, for be­ing the rea­son I come back ev­ery month. —Alexan­der Leow, Sen­tul

No wor­ries at all: how you con­sume our mag­a­zine is en­tirely up to you, even if that means cut­ting it up and com­pil­ing notes for your scrap­book. In fact, we’re quite in­trigued as to what your col­lec­tion looks like. You might be edit­ing a project even we would never be able to do. Ac­tu­ally, could we have a look at it? Thanks for your con­tin­ued sup­port, and cut away!
