Since I was young, I was a voracious reader and had a deep love of words and the way they could be used to convey meaning. I hope that my words and my stories would have a positive impact on others.

Every face that we see in a crowd has a story behind it. I am trying my best to listen, tell and share all the stories that I can.

Autobiography

"How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?" 

- "The Swing", Robert Louis Stevenson

It seemed as if time had held its breath for this moment. Years of love and hope from family and friends that followed me no matter where I went, months of events that were endlessly swirling around in my head, days of hearing my aunt and mother reminisce about their pasts... And maybe even the hour before in the traditional Penang bookshop downstairs where a notebook with a picture of a swing on it had led up to this desire to capture my history, to preserve it by trapping memories as words in the brown pages of my notebook. I picked up my pen, and slowly, began to write the first of the words that would form the story of my life.
