The first one

I have finally decided to start a blog. There are many reasons why I should have one, I suppose. Airing my thoughts. Exchange of ideas. Meeting fellow souls. Something to do now that I am unemployed. Improving my writing.

Of the above five reasons, only “Meeting fellow souls” is a vaguely Singaporean thing to do. (Being unemployed, and wanting to write, sadly, are not). I hope you appreciate how I’ve had to fight against my cultural upbringing.

I have however also had many anxieties and misgivings about my own blog, which perhaps explains how overdue this whole thing is. What will people think? One’s words are sometimes too much of a window into the soul. Am not sure if I really want people knowing who I really am. But oh well, here goes.
