March: Our Own Little Space

Paula got a road bike, so we welcomed March by waking up at 5:30am to cycle 37km through Tanah Merah with some friends. I don’t have my own gear so I came with a random Mobike, which is a really silly thing to do! Thankfully, I survived that first ever cycling trip. At the start […]

February: The Normal That Was

After all the festivities, February was jam packed. A reflection, perhaps, of what normal life used to look like. In the first week, I was in Kuala Lumpur, where I inconveniently developed sniffles on the last day (this scared the shit out of me and I took my last meeting in the hotel room over […]

12 Days of Thanks: A Decision to Unblur

The year was a blur. A friend asked me what word I’d use to describe it, and I struggled to find one. I thought there isn’t any English word to describe the feelings I have. That of inhaling and holding your breath for so long, and just wanting to finally exhale it all out. Like […]

I realize people occasionally still find this blog somehow. I haven’t touched it for a while. Today I have stripped it, leaving only the basics and nothing else. Should you decide to stay, be warned that these are all but ramblings from previous lives.

My Life Goals Template

At the end of every work year, we usually have an annual review – mostly to answer questions such as: Did we meet our goals? What went well? What didn’t? It’s basic, but answering these simple questions helps a lot in setting the direction for the coming year. So I wondered, why am I not […]

This Pain, It Feels So Good

I have forgotten this feeling. It has been so long. When you’re doing something so challenging you feel like you’re gonna die, you’re gonna die, you’re absolutely gonna die. But then you keep saying in your mind that you will see it through, and you keep pushing, and you keep doing it anyway. And you […]

For You, this 2018: Be Bold As F*ck

Are you a journey or a destination kind of person? I used to ask that question a lot, until I realized they’re one and the same. The destination is the journey is the destination. Everytime I reach a goal or a certain level of success in any aspect of life, there’s always a next level […]

Never Lose Your Childlike Wonder

On Instagram, you post a photo of yourself with closed eyes, arms spread wide, hair blown by the wind, in your cute adventure outfit. In this photo, you are probably at the beach, or at the top of the mountain, or in a new city in another part of the world. The caption says something […]
