About Me


celebrate mediocrity!


I'm the product of misspent formative years fed on too much popular culture. I've an (almost) encyclopedic knowledge of useless trivia which would probably win me alot of money on jeopardy. I like to learn new things, meet new people and share whatever I know with them.


celebrate mediocrity!


(not necessarily in order) literature, film, music, walking the streets, converations, opposition politics, business, pop culture, hanging out, football, people-watching, fashion, art theory and critique, some forms of philosophy from the analytic and existentialist tradition & video games.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In my angsty teenage years, I once met up with an artist whom I absolutely adored. We shared a short but thorough journey in shedding the truths about human existence and uncovering life's greatest philosophy. He taught me everything I knew and was such a great influence to me. I memorised all that he spoke and it formed the core of my beliefs. One morning, I woke up and realised that I adored him to the extent that I wanted not to be like him, but to be him... kinda doppelgänger-ish.
