Communicator. Digitalist. Humanist. Stoic. Thinker. Essayist.
Also an avid gardener, photographer, cook, traveller,
and lover of science, history and the arts.
Born in 1975, in Singapore to a deceptively ordinary middle-class family.
An extraordinarily difficult childhood was followed by an onslaught of Guillain–Barré syndrome in the year 2000. I was paralysed from chest-down for nine months.
I was given a second life after learning how to walk, eat, sit, defecate and urinate. The early period of my life taught me that it is as precious as a young seedling in the frosty spring morning.
For every day of our life, we should live, love, learn, explore – and create.

"We will ask the critics to be serious for once, and remind them that it was not so long ago that the Greeks thought – as most of the – that it was shocking and ridiculous for . When the Cretans, and later the Spartans, first began to take exercise naked, wasn’t there plenty of material for the wit of the comedians of the day?"
