13. A Memorable Stranger stranger /ˈstreɪn(d)ʒə/ noun a person whom one does not know or with whom one is not familiar.

Hey guys! I’m not in the perkiest of moods lately. Let’s just say that when you do things right, people expect it of you, but you fuck up ONE time and they won’t get off your case for it and suddenly you’re seen as incompetent, careless, lazy, inefficient. ONE time. Well, I guess that’s how life works and I shouldn’t be a whiny bitch about … Continue reading What’s On My Playlist? August 2018 Edition
It was exactly four years ago. I was stuffed from having a huge bowl of bulgogi at your favourite Korean restaurant. You told me you took all the girls you liked here, and the waiters always mistook them for your girlfriends. That made me a little sad, but I didn’t want to spoil the night. We walked through the back alleys of Chinatown and the … Continue reading I Remember the Mice

As a (self-professed) INTJ, I’m very picky when it comes to friends (which is why I don’t have many!) But I’d like to think that the handful of close pals I have are those whom I can trust and share things with. I’m not a person who’ll go out of the way to do things for you, unless you’re family or a very close friend. … Continue reading Friend ?
I was scrolling through my Facebook feed when I came across a video called ‘The Suicide Experiment’. I cried after watching it, because it touched me on so many levels. Suicide has always been a topic close to my heart. Since I was a teen, I’ve suffered from bouts of depression, struggled with low self esteem, anxiety and feelings of alienation. I think that experiences … Continue reading There’s Always a Reason
Growing up in a traditional Asian household, I’ve always lived my life according to what my parents want; partly out of love and respect, but also from fear of being called un-filial. There is scant little that scares an East Asian kid more than being called a shame to the family. We come from societies where our parents come first before everything, even at the … Continue reading Why Traditional Asian Parenting Sucks
