Saturday, 28 February 2017 Hi, Oma. I hope you are fine. Did you receive the flowers your youngest daughter & I gave to you several weeks ago? And the jasmines we gave out earlier today? We hope you did. I hope you did. Kiong hi, Oma! It’s been two years since my last Chinese New Year here back home. I was in Melbourne during these … Continue reading A Letter to Grandma
Stuck in my newest routine as an intern, as I wait for my seniors to come, I came across The Daily Post’s Discover Challenge about Conventional Wisdom. It asked its readers to either: write a cliché one never agreed on, or to review a book, a poem, a movie, or a song innovatively, or to capture a (yet) unappreciated beauty of things people would just pass on, … Continue reading The Conventional Wisdom: A Response

I looove the music, the piano-playing Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone’s solo, the dancing scenes are breath-taking; … Continue reading la la land
Still in the new years vibe, I reckon it is appropriate to write such a post that would act as a reminder for my future self to be better. A friend asked me in NYE, to sum up 2016 in one word.

“It’s just packing. I’ll do it later,” I said, multiple times. Packing is easy. Technically, you gather all of your things then you stuff them up in a suitcase. But today, I see the light; I was pissed today, realising that packing needs a lot of time. And eagerness. And details. You must pay attention to details. All the things you’d want to go with … Continue reading what’s behind: packing
