Dear friends, Over 10 years ago, I was given a unique platform in form of The Bangsar Boy column, to share stories from the lens of a young, progressive urban Malaysian. This year, I mark a major milestone in my career and personal life with the launch of Growing Up In KL: 10 years of […]
Ever since I’ve returned from completing my MA in London, I’ve been inundated by questions about my future plans – or whether I am “back for good”. My reply has always been simple: “We’ll see” to the barrage of questions, and “Good sounds so permanent” to the latter.
It’s bee a while since I’ve posted something up here but I wanted to take the chance here to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. It’s my second Christmas away from home, and it’s the first time any of us have missed it twice in a row. I am a bit sad that I wasn’t […]
I’m sitting here quite excited, waiting for the folks at The Star in Malaysia to update stories on the website, like a 5-year-old child. The reason for this is that today, my new column called ReWired will appear in Star2. ReWired is my first personal column in The Star since The Bangsar Boy (although, I […]
It figures. Just as I started picking up momentum on my blogging again, something has to get in its way. 😛 This time it’s my MA dissertation which is due in exactly three weeks! The picture above is just some of the many readings I’ve been doing over the past few months and that I’m […]

Wow, it’s really been a while since I’ve updated this blog. The past month or so have been crazy with five university deadlines over six weeks. Looking back, I’m not sure how I survived it! Then, besides my assignment deadlines, I had a few articles to write as well. I’m still doing some writing for […]
Kong Hei Fatt Choy! It’s another new year again, and this time I’d like to wish you a roaring year of prosperity, good health, success and love. Happy Chinese New Year one and all, near and a far. Taken from OnTask on Flickr under the Creative Commons Code. 8.33am Malaysian time (+8 GMT)
I woke up this morning and a post I had uploaded from last night is gone (thank God for Firefox’s restore button, I still had the draft text open when the pages reloaded) and all my pictures from my previous post are, erm, missing.
It’s a shame that Valentine’s Day this year is celebrated on the same day as Chinese New Year. Two celebrations on the same day. Nevertheless, always time to wish you folks a good day!
