May was an interesting month for me because I was asked to speak at 2 events. The first event was a forum where I was a panellist speaking on women entrepreneurship (will share about that in another post) while the second was a little less formal, where I spoke on the importance of marketing oneself.

I interviewed Mak Lan of Lidiana’s in Tanjung Bungah for the 8 March International Women’s Day exhibition. This is the full interview which I wrote up as a feature story, well, for myself. I did journalism in USM but I never worked for any newspapers so in a way, this is my way of keeping […]
I wrote the below on 8 March but only published this today. All photos below were taken by Hau Chern, who also took part of the photos for the Unseen Faces, Unheard Voices exhibition. I was waiting for his photos to include with this post. Look out for Part 2 for the interview I did […]
Nic and I watched an interesting yet thought-provoking documentary last week called Living On One Dollar. The one-hour documentary chronicled 4 American boys, in their early 20s, who decided to spend their summer in Guatemala – living in a village of 300 people atop a mountain. The village people didn’t speak much Spanish but communicated via […]
Can I wish you a Happy New Year? I know, it’s already 11 days into January. But a belated is better than never, right? I have been reading – and thinking and writing. Just that so much has been happening that I have not had time to sit down and let my thoughts percolate and […]
This year has made me realize a few things – that I have less patience for people I used to have patience for. I think growing older and interacting with people of all kinds of backgrounds made me re-evaluate my relationships. Some of my relationships go way back to my secondary school days. Some relationships […]
Below is a story that I wrote to share at tomorrow’s Lean In networking tea at China House Cafe. Emi and I are planning to announce the book project at this tea. We plan to create a role model book of sorts – a first for Penang anyway – to document our own personal Lean […]
As you can see, my blog got a facelift. I was getting quite sick and tired of the old visual. Wanted something contemporary. Something clean and neat. And hence, this new look. Anyway, besides the new look, I am looking forward to a couple of things. I have some plans in mind for 2015. That’s […]
I wanted to post up stuff about my trip with my parents to Hong Kong but honestly I got a little lazy since I had to resize the bunch of photos. Anyway. That will have to wait until I am in a less lazy mood. Actually it’s not that I have nothing to say. The […]
Many, many times I catch myself saying – “I am so grateful to be living in Penang!” You see, this is a fab place. And more often that not, we islanders forget we’re on an island. A sunny one. A friend who called from Melbourne said she was wrapped up in 3 layers of clothes […]
