One Havoc Night in Batam!

It was one of those times when we were just randomly talking about going away for a short trip, and the next thing we knew.. whoa! We were going to Batam! Okay, maybe not exactly like that. We have been talking about it for weeks but we were procrastinating until the very last day when…

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…

I’m still living.

“I would have to learn to live in a different way, seeing death as an imposing itinerant visitor but knowing that even if I’m dying, until I actually die, I’m still living.” Paul Kalanithi from When Breath Becomes Air

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…

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…

Manchester Bound 2012

Now this will be a recount of experience of our trip to Manchester circa 2012. I thought this will be a fun way to share some of my travel logs, sorry it’s a bit jumbled. That’s just how I am. Jumbled. A lot going on up here. (points to brain) I promise I will get into…

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,…
