You are probably here because of one of these few things:
– You love to eat and wanted some novice opinion on the food scene in HK
– You stumbled here from search engines looking for travel information
– You digested the said information and wanted to ask me things
– You are intrigued by this person who jump from one topic to another with no apparent order
– Or… you are my friends (and foes) who just want to find out how I am doing

This blog manifested itself in 2005, and has since then evolved, changed, dumped, resurrected and evolved again, very much like myself. 2005 was the year when I started taking on the corporate race and discovered that I am not exactly a champion-rat material. A rat, yes, but sans the crown.

Over the years as I grew up – ten years in Singapore, and now in Hong Kong – I underwent many life-changing experiences, from love pain, travel joy, career woes… something that I and many of my blog readers can identify with. My life is uniquely straddled between Singapore (which I miss more than I can to admit) and Hong Kong (which I call home but not in my heart… yet).

I liken blogging to therapy (it’s cheaper than counselling, and then some) and I write because I love to. Food, movies, travel, social media, digital news… nothing escapes my arguably short-attention span, and if it is blogworthy, it will be here.

Okay, maybe not politics.

Things I like: Social media (when I am not overwhelmed with work), backpacking through the world (at least, parts that I can afford to), eating out (on good days when the 30″ pants fits) and of course, blogging.

Things I dislike: Overpriced ego, people who takes the lift to second floor, yapping puppies with ear-piercing shrieks, and feminists who demand for gender equality but yet expect a man to pay for everything.

My favorite quote, one which I learned in my teenage years: “To have faith is to believe in things you cannot see, and the reward of faith is to see things you believed in”
