Born and raised in Singapore, I left home in 2010 to discover the world beyond the ‘little red dot’.
My one-year sabbatical in Paris led me to Brussels where I worked for several years. An opportunity came up in Hong Kong and I returned to Asia in 2016.
Things that I like and that inspire me include: endless walks, bookstores, train rides, single-malt whiskies, Chinese tea, nu-jazz, electronica, film photography, Art Deco design, Rioja red wine, fruits soaked in alcohol, mountains, rainy nights, cats, and dark chocolate.
“Beyond an HDB flat” sums up what this blog is about. For an HDB flat (Singapore’s successful public housing) is where I, like most Singaporeans, grew up in.
Here is where I record my thoughts and experiences, most of which are from my time abroad and travels. Where I share and exchange insights on off-the-beaten-path destinations and translated literature. Where I discuss photography and societal observations. So please feel free to drop me a line!
