About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live happy, free & passionately! And to make changes in a hope to make the world a better place.

ABOUT ME

A born and raised "True Blue" Singaporean, I have the honor of traveling to many places in the past and I truly hope I can continue to explore other beautiful parts of the world.

PHILOSOPHY

"I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing."
- Agatha Christie

Cheers to a life of less blues and to enjoying the little things in life!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I love Switzerland. I am especially amazed when I was at Zurich. Seeing how the natural scenery can blend so beautiful as a backdrop to a city, I begin to wonder if only more concrete jungles in the world can instead be a exquisite mosaic of how modernization and nature can assimilated into each other.
