  • How to get out of a reading slump

    People used to frown at me whenever they saw me slipping a book into my bag wherever I went, be it a journey or a party. My friends and family knew me well enough to buy my favourite books and bookmarks on my birthday and help me by not letting me go broke trying to buy originals. I could talk about books all day and judge people who thought the movie was better than the book it was based on. But that's all in the past.
  • Baby in the house!

    After years of being the youngest of your clan, there comes a time when you're not the youngest anymore. Initially, it can be a bit overwhelming that a tiny human being is now your brand new relative. The prospect of being an older cousin, aunt, or uncle can be somewhat intimidating, but trust me when I say this—the feeling doesn't last too long.
  • Wear your imagination

    Growing up, instead of choosing to wear uncomfortable and oddly coloured abominations that some t-shirts can be, I decided to make my own. Ordering customised t-shirts on the internet might seem easier but can be pricey.
  • Set. Follow. Achieve.

    At the beginning of each year, I see people around me setting goals like “Will fight two tigers with bare hands” and it makes me feel bad about making certain life choices (i.e. keeping them around me).
  • Team building made easy

    Unless you're a really lucky person, you probably had to work on a group project at some point in your life.
