Share Letting the Yuan free fall/rise
2017-1-9 04:36
I just read in a business newspaper in the Hoboken Library of the possibility of the Yuan flying 'free'. By free, I mean letting current market forces dictate its true value without governmental tinkering. Economics was never one of my strongest subjects in university, but the entrepreneur and Chinese native in me tend to think it may not be a bad idea overall. Sure, if the Yuan becomes 'expensive' in the global arena then China's export industry may be hit. Conversely if the Yuan becomes t ...

I just had a radical thought. After being in the workforce for more than 15 years in the government, media, education, religious and corporate faculties, I wonder if it is possible for the world's working population to unite and serve under the same 'entity'. The 5 estates mentioned above have vastly different goals. In an ideal world, governments exist to roll out policies that protects and safeguard the welfare of its citizens. Media organizations function almost like a watchdog, a school pre ...

Catharsis. Healing. Love
I recently took an intensive filmmaking course at the New York Film Academy. It has always been my dream to turn my 3 novels into films, big or small screen. I love all forms of story-telling, and I believe from the bottom of my heart of the lessons, teachings and compassion embedded inside my novels. I write because I wanted to share some deep emotional experiences which I hope could be of help to others. It started as a therapeutic means to ease some painful experiences, and as I wrote and inv ...

The art of teaching
I shall start the new year exploring the topic of teaching. Is it an art form, or a matter of science? As an artist and a creative soul, I believe most things in life is an art form. Even scientific roles and practices such as doctors, lawyers, accountants, designing sculptures or even computer software programming etc. Yes, the items I just mentioned above commonly have to abide by their own unique language. Computer programming utilizes the binary code, or simply 1 and 0 and a set of 'IF' lo ...

Share Happy new year! :)
2017-1-1 02:42
Hi everyone, It has been a while. The past few months have been so exhilarating and challenging I wish to thank everyone that has helped me to grow. 2016 will be a year where I conquered many of my personal 'demons'. We all have demons to fight within us. Be it fear of public speaking, fear of abandonment, fear of ridicule (lose face), fear of not having enough (money, friends, love, resources etc.), fear of not being good enough .... the list goes on. Like you, I too have several fears whic ...

Japanese Imperialism and Anime generation
I have re-discovered my interest in Japanese culture and language. Around 18 years ago I learned Japanese language in Malaysia and graduated at an intermediate level in speaking. Japanese language is one of the hardest in the world, which requires the learner to master 4 sub-languages including Hirakana, Katakana, Romanji and Kanji (similar to Chinese). It is almost like a secret code within a code! My career then took me to a different direction and I stopped learning the language. Having said ...

Share The Ghost of EU past
2016-6-29 05:46
Now #Brexit is what everyone seems to be talking about. No one likes a sudden departure from a family member, though it is part and parcel of life. The withdrawal symptoms can be painful, uncomfortable, leaves a very bitter taste in the mouth even. How will the remaining EU members cope? Will they chuck a tantrum like a bunch of spoiled kids? Or will they readjust and recalibrate once the grieving period is over like civilized adults? I guess time will tell. The Ghost of EU past will forever ...

Share Is the devil a woman?
2016-6-27 10:23
I am not particularly religious nor superstitious. I am a well educated woman. Obtained a Master's degree from the University of Sydney and worked in a Forbes 500 company coupled with several government linked entities. However, there have been certain instances in my life when I can't help but to ponder on the whole notion of the 'devil' and 'devil reincarnate'. Yin and Yang, that is the popular Chinese belief where everything in this world be it animate or inanimate are balanced out by the ...

Are you scared of ghosts?
Here is a little poem on ghosts I'd like to share which is partly derived from my latest book Henna, the dancer from Cambodia. Just because I find this topic very intriguing.... A ghost. A ghost? A ghost! Three similar sentences, yet they evoke a myriad of emotions. Sacre bleu! Run for your life! For surely the ghost is after you! We sometimes fail to remember that we, men, invented these very words. So why then should men, fear their very own inventions? Have you ever wondered who inv ...

Share Do you believe in ghosts?
2016-6-10 12:36
Do you believe in ghosts? Do you believe in wandering spirits? If they chose to reveal themselves to you.....would you think they are good or evil natured? Hungry Ghosts festival......a Chinese festival which never fails to create goosebumps on my skin. The mere mention of this celebration for our dearly departed residing in the underworld conjures up an image of forlorn looking ghouls seeking their living loved ones. Or perhaps, there are some of these spirits that have died in vain....and u ...
