Favourite Artist Series: Wu Guan Zhong 吳冠中

Ways to save money this Christmas

Christmas is my favourite time of year – winding down that busy year, meeting up with friends, exchanging presents… it’s also the time of the year that I spend so much on gifts, decorations and Christmas food! Before you continue reading this article, I want to reiterate that you don’t actually have a “net profit”Continue reading “Ways to save money this Christmas”

Childhood

Recently while talking to my sister I found out that we had totally different perspectives of our childhood. Perhaps for her, it’s the “middle-child” syndrome (the neglected one?!), but my childhood was kind of totally different from my memory.

Why put in so much effort in something to doContinue reading “What playing competitive sports taught me”

What I thought life would be

Looking at the On This Day pictures brought back many memories. 13 years ago I was hanging out with the gang at Dempsey. 11 years ago I was spending summer in Hong Kong. 10 years ago I was lamenting on how I had no more friends in school since everyone had graduated the past semester.Continue reading “What I thought life would be”

Till we meet again

One of the greatest pains come from loss, the loss of love; the loss of life; and one in particular, the loss of a loved one. The unimaginable pain of losing a child and the process of him or her slipping away. The courage of the parents; the inconsolable heartache; the helplessness of those aroundContinue reading “Till we meet again”
