The last song I listened to

Karma by Taylor Swift. It’s a good reminder that doing good brings good. Karma IS a relaxing thought.

The last series I watched

The Mysterious Benedict Society. I read some of the books when I was younger, and it’s been delightful seeing that come to life!

The last thing I bought

A tumbler from The Animal Project. I got it during my most recent trip to Singapore Zoo! The artwork was drawn by Jun-Yi, an artist with special needs.

The place that means a lot to me

My grandma’s house. It reminds me of the fun my brother and I had as kids, and how well-fed the two of us were by her.  

The best gift I’ve received recently

An orangutan soft toy from IKEA. I made a passing comment about how I found it so cute but would never buy it, and my dad got it as a surprise for my birthday.

In my fridge you’ll always find

Leftover drinks from meals. I can never seem to finish them, but my brother willingly helps with that. 

I have a collection of

Taylor Swift albums. I’ve been a fan for more than 10 years, and I will never stop buying her physical CDs. Even if I never open them. 

I daydream of travelling to

Disney World and Universal Studios in Florida (again)! My family and I love theme parks and those were the best.

As a child my dream was to be

A veterinarian. I really liked animals (and still do)!

My hidden talent is

I’m really good at co-op speed games, especially ones that involve cooking. I’ve spent way too much time chasing 4 stars in Overcooked 2…

My proudest achievement is

My proudest achievement is moving to Singapore alone when I was 16. It really taught me the importance of family, while showing me how resilient I really was.

My ideal house pet would be

My ideal house pet would be a dog! More specifically a dachshund. I have such a soft spot for them. They also have short legs, like me.

If I could live in a fictional universe, I would pick

The Wizarding World! I fell so in love with the magic of it so quickly, it’s one of the main reasons I went all the way to Florida and visited Universal. 

I hope for a future that

Is much kinder and more compassionate. Times are tough, let’s support one another. 

I am most looking forward to

Going on a holiday with my family. Covid-19 kept us apart for 2 years, and I’m now eager to make up for lost time.
