The most romantic thing

“I want to learn about life with you” he said as he leaned against the wall. “Hmm?” I turned around to face him, wondering if I heard him correctly. “You heard me, I want to learn about life with you. I think it would be fun to learn and go through life together. To share life experiences with each other.” I was speechless. Who says that…

That kind of Woman

“You look posh” he said as he looked at the screen and showed me this photo. “Me, Posh?” I thought to myself. And there I was, caught off guard and caught in the moment. I barely recognize myself because I look so relaxed and comfortable with where I am. I’m just doing what I usually do- thinking- only this time it’s while staring off into the blue…

Good bye 2014

I was looking through my photos and scrolling through my instagram when I realized I hardly recognize who I was a month ago, let alone a year ago. Have you ever looked at a photo of yourself and thought:”wow I feel like a completely different person now. That feels like ages ago?” That’s how I have felt this entire year after every challenge (which was basically…

kindness matters

  Today was quite a strange day. Eventful, but strange. I’m at home now, recounting today’s activities and there seems to be the overarching message of kindness. I just had to blog to share with you.

Crossroads

At the intersection of 168th street and Broadway (in New York) there is a subway station with two tracks and two side platforms. This station is particularly deep and dark, its surrounding energy a bit ominous and not as upbeat as the ones I frequent downtown. Stand above, on one of the bridges that connects the two platforms and you will see trains coming and…

My Ego will get the best of Me

Ego. It’s something that’s been on my mind for quite sometime (I know because this post has been sitting in my “drafts” for more than a month). Everyone has an ego. I’ve seen how it operates in me and other people in both business and life. It doesn’t just come in the form of arrogance or stuck-upness.  It’s not just about vanity or showing off. Ego…

Things I wish I knew when I was 22

I love getting random emails and comments from readers.  In my last post, I even offered my style advice to a reader. The people who stumble across my blog often make my day 🙂 Not too long ago I got an email from someone who read my Crazy Rich Asians blog post and I eventually asked him for some advice. (Yea kind of random, but…

When you love and you have to let go

Note: This post has gone through multiple edits within the past four weeks. It’s amazing how you can write something in one state of mind and then read it through a completely different perspective. I’m sure it will still sound a bit all over the place but here it is: A lot has happened in my life so far in 2014. I  got to travel…

*Exclusive* Interview with Shi Lim, Miss Universe Singapore 2013

One of the things I love about New York is that you never know who you’ll meet or run into. If you try new things with an open mind and spontaneous spirit, you are bound to meet great people.  Another great thing about New York is that it is only the beginning. The person you are while you’re here and the people you meet during…

On my Mind: Tech-life balance

We live in a world where information and data is inextricably linked to our personal lives. It’s no longer just about work-life balance but about tech-life balance. As it becomes easier to attain information at our fingertips and easier to become lazy and inactive, the importance of unplugging and connecting offline is greater than ever. No more spending hours checking and sending emails or trolling…
