Ghosts and Taxi Drivers…

So my blogger buddy Claudia asked me the other day… what’s the quirkiest experience I’ve ever had with a taxi driver? I shared a bizarre real life story that personally happened to me, and she burst out laughing. Though it happened when I was fresh out of school, the memory of it still plays vividly in my mind like it was just yesterday. I thought you may appreciate the humour (p...[Read More]

And I think I’m not the only one who’s excited too… everyone’s all buzzing about the upcoming general elections, it’s sl...[Read More]

Game of Books: The story thus far…

Granted there’s no sexy maiden with dragons IRL or ominous three-eyed ravens/ crows… but #SG50books50days is doing well, with folks responding back on social media with their new finds!

Celebrating Singapore reads & Singapore authors

Earlier this year for an interview regarding World Book Day, I shared that ever since I was a little girl, I’d always been a voracious bookworm who looked forward to Mom bringing me to the small neighbourhood library.
