Please, I beg you. Just leave me alone. That’s all I ask. The streets in this bustling city are crowded with motorbikes, a lot more than where I come from. At the moment, I have other more pressing issues to worry about. Living in fear day by day, for one. How did I end up here? Like everyone  Read More...

It is a cold night, as I stood at the balcony of my lonely penthouse in the middle of town. Tears flowed down my face as events of these couple of weeks have been occupying my mind and perhaps the people around me. The wind was cool blowing on to my face.

There was never a clear understanding, in my life, what loss truly meant.  I cursed when I lost my wallet the day I had my biggest job interview. Tears were shed when I lost my phone on the bus after a five hour long journey from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. When my fish died from overfeeding, I   Read More...
