“Tell us something interesting about yourself.”

When you join a new place, whether it be in a school, workplace or even a religious group setting, a common ice breaker to these leaders with utter lack of creativity tend ask the dreaded question: Tell us something interesting (or unique, if they're feeling fancy) about yourself. Everybody stifles a groan and spends a... Continue Reading →

Learning = Success

As the academic year is dawning, it seems perhaps coincidental or appointed by divine fate that I've noticed something importance about success - or perhaps more specifically in business terms. My parents (who work together) have had to change the concept of what they do twice, perhaps thrice and each time they find greater levels... Continue Reading →

On the subject of phones.

I once read a post saying a good measure for your enjoyment / time spent with people is that you forget to take photos. You forget the cyberspace and are content living in the moment.Recently I hosted a party for a large group of people and there were only a couple of photos taken that... Continue Reading →

Change.

I’ve stopped having a potty mouth for the last couple of years and not that I think there’s anything particularly wrong with profanities, I stopped just because I believe there are better ways to expressing feelings than certain 4 letter words.

I sat down to watch 20 minutes of the programme, as it was in Chinese to improve my fluency. Despite the majority of it being in... Continue Reading →

Title: Scrapbooking.

I am an obsessive scrapbooker - I've kept some sort of record, memory of each year that I've started scrapbooking - probably since I was in year 4. I was that kid who gave everyone leaving scrapbooks, all images and messages from teachers and friends alike laid beautifully on the page, an incoherent mess to... Continue Reading →

Alternate Universes.

I wonder in an alternate universe, would I be fat, skinny, taller or shorter? Smarter, dumber, in love with some one or just breaking up? Perhaps I love coffee more than I do, or maybe I don't. Am I happier, living where I am now, or am I living somewhere completely different? Maybe I'm worse... Continue Reading →

People & Their Stories

You know what I'm always amazed by ? The amount of people on this earth. All these homo sapiens, their births recorded meticulously on birth registries, all existing on this earth exactly the same time as me. Sit on a busy street for 5 minutes, the plethora of people that pass you by; some you... Continue Reading →
