Film, Book and Music Recommendations by Maverick Quek

Maverick Quek

I am very pleased to have Maverick participating in this List now as well. Some of the most interesting, and unusual Books I have read were Gifts from him.

He always encourages one to live the here and now and being oneself. He also has an amazing taste and very unique style, as you can see in his selection as well. Enjoy!
