About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be comfortable in my uncomfort

To find balance between control & letting go

Side Mission - wild camping in all kinds of places

ABOUT ME

I want to experience life in all it's depth and dimensions.

New adventures brings me joy & excitement, but it also scares the hell out of me.

I'm learning to let go of control. This past year I've learnt that perfection & beauty are not necessarily the same thing, & I'm looking for the point where the two meet.

I became vegetarian a few years back & started practicing yoga and meditation daily after an incredible trip to India back in 2012.

I just left the Singapore army a couple months back & have been travelling to places on my bucket list since :)

PHILOSOPHY

The only thing I can be sure about life is death.
No time to waste, got to live while I'm living!
I've yet to unravel all the mysteries in the universe!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It has to be India.
Never has a single place moved me so much.
Stirring the depths of a place within me that I never knew existed before

Teach, Learn, Share

"What if our religion was each other

If our practice was our life

If prayer, our words

What if the temple was the Earth

If forests were our church

If holy water--the rivers, lakes, and ocean

What if meditation was our relationships

If the teacher was life

If wisdom was self-knowledge

If love was the center of our being."
