Watching Cloud Atlas reminds me of how much my mind can't take too much thought-provoking information in one go. It's odd, seeing that when I was younger, I used to love absorbing all sorts of knowledge ranging from paranormal to the cosmos, the functionality of the brain to the ecology of the ocelot. I went in … Continue reading I Just Want to.
To understand that I'm not writing for the mere pleasure of popularity and fame, I need to know that I have a purpose for each book and series that I write. I don't want to supply temporary excitement only for them to die down when it ends, but to leave a lasting impact on the … Continue reading Figuring Out Themes
It's nice to have a writer for a friend, to be able to share our challenges and views, and gain valuable insights from their experience.

Sorry for the long overdue report. … Continue reading Convention and London Afterthoughts
Before entering fangirl mode, small thoughts about watching the same play more than once (in this case, Labour of Love): I am so impressed by the effort they put into it every single night. By the second time, it was easy to spot the differences from the first, the comparison in execution for various scenes, and … Continue reading Twice the Play
Where do I even begin to talk about. If you have seen my Instagram, I posted a picture of the view over Iran desert when flying from Dubai to London. It was breathtaking. It made me realize how intrigued I have been with the Middle East. Perhaps one day I could try visiting despite all … Continue reading London So Far and a Play
