Wa Si Teochew Kia – My First 120 Teochew Expressions: Kickstarter Campaign Update 6

We have reached our funding goal!


Words cannot describe our joy! It has taken nearly four months for our small team to reach this point in this project.

We are currently 105% funded, thanks to our 81 generous backers from Singapore, USA, Australia, UK, Canada, Hong Kong, France, Denmark, Thailand, Switzerland, Germany, Japan and Malaysia.
