For a long time now, I associated travelling with inconveniences. It was the hassle of planning, hassle of packing (then unpacking and doing laundry once you are back), hassle of leaving work behind (and then coming home to realise that they never missed you after all - insecurities!), hassle of visa and nonsense if it … Continue reading Welcome to my Year of Travel
See I’m a closed up person. I’m not the book type where the more you get to read, the more I open up. In fact, I feel as though you are the wrong type of reader or you just don’t spend enough time in a library, you will be getting to read a different book. … Continue reading Let’s Talk about Personal Space
I found myself panicking during last year’s floods. It was probably the first time in my “adult” life that I had seen a calamity of that extent and moreover, affected to those closest to me.

But then when I think about it, there hasn't really been a lot going on. You know like when you are really busy but then it's difficult to … Continue reading Week Thirty-Three: Giving Thanks
It’s a topic I’ve been wanting to speak on for a long time, but haven’t for the usual reasons, i.e.- procrastination and then for the more diplomatic reasons on whether we should speak about it at all. Because I mean after all, these sort of topics are saved for after marriage and I'm not married … Continue reading Let’s (try to) Talk about Sex Education?

As far as I know, marriage is a union of love, gay or otherwise. Or … Continue reading Let’s Talk about “Gay Marriage”
