    “I’m a writer, not a non-profit organization.”

    I grew up believing that one day, I would become a doctor, law or accountant. At Chinese school, that’s what they drill into you – that this golden trinity of professions would eventually allow you to achieve Valhalla and you would live a wonderful life, surrounded by riches.   It was only in Form 4 […]

  • This is not a love-related post for Valentine’s Day

    This is not a love-related post for Valentine’s Day

    I was initially planning to write a post about Valentine’s Day today, but I realized that there are more important things than giving in to the over-commercialized scam that benefits only restaurants/florists/jewelry stores.   At this day and age, having a significant other is no longer as important as it used to be.

I mean, this might have been […]

     I’m not a big fruit eater, and I’m not a huge fan of green veggies except the softer types, like spinach and cabbage. But I love fruit juices, and over the past year, I’ve been steadily contributing a portion of my money to La Juiceria. They make the most consistently best-tasting cold-pressed juices in town, […]

    What you should not allow your children to think is okay

    Before I continue, let the record show that I do not have any children of my own. I have, however, been able to observe other children, whether those of the people around me, or simply other people’s kids while dining out/spending time at the mall. So, even though I am not a mother, I feel […]
