When I started this blog in mid-2014, it was all about freeing myself through writing. I have a pair of Asian parents and a Law degree. The release of a backlog of creative tension was justifiable, if not necessary. Travelling, though, was secondary. It was only a subject that I used to hold my writings together. A privilege that I have – and since been fully exploiting – to fulfill my most unfulfilled desire to write, and for being unapologetically creative.

From mid-2015 through 2016, this blog was about my adventures in a good chunk of “less-trodden”, “exotic” places. My eagerness to learn about culture, food and people.

Few years on…

My passion for all the above still stands, but my appetite for all things creative has grown bigger and more ferocious: my interest in art, particularly modern painting and photography; my rather idle curiosity about fashion, the clashing of colours, prints and textures.

As well as my life.

The seemingly worry-free existence of a snotty twentysomething jetting between London and the world. Doesn’t this all sound very exciting?

In return for these delicious stories you would have to promise me a few things:

    1. Always make fun of tall people.
    2. Drive badly.
    3. Drink plenty.
    4. Master the language of sarcasm.
    5. Up your tolerance for expletives.
  1. Keep your mind wide, wide open like the church door.

Can you do that?

Now, welcome on board. 😉
