The art of being jobless in Singapore

Image Source: Medium Hey everyone. Just wanted to share something. It’s about what I’m doing now. See, I quit my comfortable, stable job at SPH 23 March 2016. I thought I was going to go on to a new job that would bring me into […]

24! The end of year edition

Merry Christmas everyone! It’s been a crazy year of ups and downs: I got engaged, I had some trouble with a lawsuit, finally found my footing in a job I love, wrote a script for church and had it performed in front of thousands, lost […]

My struggle with Chinese and the difficulties of shopping on Taobao

I think it’s safe to say anyone who knows me knows I can barely speak or write Mandarin to save my life. Yes, I’m Chinese, yes yes, I’ve been blessed with HOURS of tuition, courtesy of my long-suffering parents, But honestly, Chinese just won’t stick! […]
