Expectation vs Reality ;)

At the end of the work day on Friday, my colleagues would pose me this question, “So, what are you going to do this weekend?” In fact, that’s probably the first thing they would ask on a Monday morning as well, and I always wish I could reply them with a list of the amazing…

Intern Life: Part Deux

Hello guys! Welcome back to the life-as-an-intern series. In the first episode, my boss turned out to be a sexual predator, and I ordered a brainless chicken. If you miss it, read it here. Well, I had another internship right after that. In fact, I quit my previous internship early so that I could start another…

Intern Life: Part Uno

Believe it or not, I am a responsible kid. (Okay, some people may disagree – then again, I once got super drunk I passed out, only after breaking some glasses, hugging random people at the bar, and slurring “I want moreeeeeeee” to the bartender. I digress.) But hey, everyone goes through THAT phase, right? Don’t tell…

My writing journey.

I have dreamed of being a writer ever since I was 7. Lack of resources and (real) creativity, my sister and I used to publish our own “newsletter” when we were small, little kids. What do 7 year old kids know about newsletter, and what could we possibly write about that was worthy enough to…

Full time dabbler.

In the days that I doubted my own capabilities, when I wondered whether I’m doing what I’m supposed to, God lent me a hand through helpful advice from people around me. The truth is, only a handful of people can be truly certain of their dreams. Sometimes, we don’t even know our own aspirations, or…

5 Reasons why Daredevil is the best Marvel series on Netflix

Okay, it’s not like there are a lot of Marvel series in Netflix to begin with, but I digress. Ever since I started watching Daredevil, I was immediately hooked. I look forward to every night to go home from work so that I can continue seeing this amazing, bloodshed, totally believable and the amazing performance…

What I’ve Learned in 2016

Another year has passed. Isn’t it crazy how time flies? I have barely blinked an eye, and here we are, at the brink of 2016. This year has been a roller-coaster of emotions. It’s the year of being challenged – having to believe in myself and pushing myself more than ever. I have been tough…

Good Times.

This weekend I met up with one of my oldest friend in Singapore. We used to be the closest – partners in crime who share everything and anything with each other and it’s amazing to think back about the things that we have gone through together! We were there through each other’s relationships, break-ups and…

Coping mechanism.

I initially wanted this space to just be all positive and colorful and funny (err, debatable – more like attempt to be funny – you get the gist) and leave the negative thoughts behind. But then – it won’t really be the fullest expression of me right? I, too, have those down moments when I question…

Road Trip Series: Getting lost in LA circa 2009.

It was right on Christmas Day. We were excited to go to Disneyland, and we were paranoid since we’ve been hearing (although I had no idea from whom) that one wouldn’t have enough time in a day to explore the whole Disneyland, so being typical tourists, we already went out at 9 from the hotel,…

I’m going to Korea.

This is another example of never saying ‘never’. I used to always tease my friends who liked seeing Korean dramas, K-Pop bands, Korean guys or anything Korean because I was like, “Err.. How can you like guys who wear make-up and look like they spend double the time I spend getting ready?” Okay, that’s very…
