Dylan

Dylan was a friend from dance. On 7 Ang 2018, Dylan decided to leave us at the very young age of 27. The news came as a great shock because whenever I think of Dylan, the image of someone with a big smile would pop into my mind. His family shared that he had been […]

Thorn

Maybe the lesson is to not focus on the thorn but to focus on His Grace and one day the tears will go away.

Ah Lian

The older i am, the more ah lian i become. Went to get a third pair of ear holes pierced today. I wondered why and the only conclusion i arrived at was the older i am, the less i care about what people think of me. So that brings my inner lian to the surface. […]

Cut Loss

To cut loss and reprioritise is akin to taking a pin and bursting a balloon you blew. Even if it’s an ugly looking balloon, it still means your hopes were not met.

I didn’t want to spoonfeed him the answer so I told him to refer to the law […]

Sense of Entitlement Indeed

I know we’re only 2 months into 2016 but I may have come across the most ridiculous thing for this year already! I was proof reading a tender document today when I saw that an overseas colleague listed “sense of entitlement” as a positive trait of a broker. I thought my eyes were playing tricks […]

US Open Swing and The After Party 2015

One of the best things about travelling is that it allows you to learn more about yourself and others around you. Being able to social dance, take private lessons, attend workshops and observe how people dance at both the US Open and The After Party (TAP) have me a deeper appreciation of what flight, quality […]
