About me




I am a Singaporean girl who is melodramatic and melancholic. I try to see the interesting in the ordinary. I have this space to share my perspectives and reflect on my life journey. This is where I share my deepest feelings. A safe place to whine, celebrate, cry, laugh and be myself. A place to record memories. A place of comfort. Have an open mind as you join me!


I used to wear only dark suits to work. Sharp suits. People in my office were interested in Tiffany and Georg Jensen jewellery and WMF cutlery. I fell ill all the time. Then, I left Singapore for the UK and discovered a different perspective on life. My priorities shifted. My views widened. I took long walks and discovered the joys of a simple life. And I decided to teach and make a difference. I rediscovered a colourful wardrobe. I am learning and living.


An air ticket and free accommodation.


I am sometimes a vegetarian. I worry too much. I cry hard and laugh even harder. It takes alot to break me. I am a distant relative of the sloth. I love to watch baby hippos run. I fly to places to surprise people I love. I dig Jeff Corwin, Hugh Grant and Jack Black. I am a Buddhist. I love animals. I have no siblings. I am a mother. I love movies, photography and quirky things. I was a kitchen hand and pub cleaner. I am scared of everything. I want to try everything.


I remember. Everything. I can read minds. Don’t lie. If you are my friend, I will always send you a card on special occasions, until I die.

    Hi! We’re a group of students from NTU, Welfare Services Club-Overseas Volunteering Expedition 2008. We’re planning to go to Nongduang, Laos this July. From your website, we understand that you had a valuable time in Laos. We would appreciate if you could share and advice us on areas such as travel tips/contacts of education/volunteering organisations in Laos.

    i found your blog looking for grasshoppers and their meaning. yesterday while i was reading a baby cricket or little black grasshopper got into my place 🙂 i wear a lot of colors too, especially tights (which i bring over here from italy!)and you have no idea of what this means in a culture where basically there are only 5 colors and conservative plain cuts…
    i am also a teacher, i teach italian in Indiana and i have a very good memory too:)
    btw, i paint too w the same colors i wear 🙂 i meditate while swimming to appease my heart… don’t forget to look up at the sky these days, apparently till W when there will be shooting stars!
