About Me

I’m an editor and writer. I love reading and music, art and films. A big fan of travel. Wish to see more of south-east and east Asia. Adore cats. Coffee is my friend. Yes to Cocktails, esp dirty martinis. I live in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia and mail to the Western world takes a while to get there. Please be patient!

Favorite Music

I listen to all kinds of genres, but music on repeat tends to be by: Bowie, Bach, Mozart, Kate Bush, Tori Amos, Suede, The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Epik High and BTS.

Favorite Books

I love the books of Barbara Pym, Elizabeth Bowen, Elizabeth David, Noel Streatfeild and Rumer Godden; AS Byatt, Alice Munro, Hiromi Kawakami, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Joan Didion, Chinua Achebe and Sefi Atta. I also like the poets John Keats, Elizabeth Bishop, Cummings, Li Bai, Basho, Christina Rossetti, Rilke and Carol Ann Duffy.

My all-time favourite books: Persuasion by Jane Austen; On Pilgrimage by Jennifer Lash; Possession by A.S. Byatt; The Mozart Season by Virginia Euwer Wolff; Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie; Strange Weather in Tokyo by Hiromi Kawakami; Nonnonba by Mizuki Shigeru; Hexwood by Diana Wynne Jones; A Room with a View by EM Forster; A Degree of Mastery: A Journey Through Book Arts Apprenticeship by Annie Tremmel Wilcox; The Flambards Trilogy by KM Peyton; The Stolen Lake by Joan Aiken, etc

Favorite Movies

Favorite Television

Favorite Crafts

I like to make collage art. And I am a very sloppy but enthusiastic miniaturist.

Comment: Love your playlist! Some of the songs are new to me, but some (esp the Doris Day and John Denver) are from my childhood, too.

Comment: Love the chill playlist! Heaven Or Las Vegas was one of my favourites in high school, and there are quite a few songs I haven't heard (or don't remember) by artists I generally love <3

Comment: That folktale is something I learnt from my Chinese school days but at that time I thought, you got punished for spending too much time canoodling, rather than doing your work?! Do you like each other THAT much? Seriously? XD
Response: So much potential for retelling. I think they were just trying to have a quick roll in the mud and were, sadly, caught. Whenever the night of their reunion rolls around they're dragging their feet and rolling their eyes. An eternity of having to see that loser! Even one night a year is one night too many.
