#beentheredonethat 😀 I am thankful to have pursued my tertiary studies (both Diploma and Degree) without my parents having to bayar a single cent. For that, I want to share some personal tips from my experiences at scholarship interviews. This article has two parts, Part I and Part II, which I hope will be helpful … Continue reading Tips for Scholarship Interviews
Why so PR geh? Reminiscing, my uni mates and I would ask each other this question when we sensed some statement is wayyyyy too 'buttery' (like too flattering, fake fake de). And as a Public Relations Degree holder, I do sometimes get asked this question too (sorry I can't help but answer questions in my 'professional … Continue reading Why so PR geh? #masscomm
Thanking God for being able to live life artistically and creatively. Note: I shared this at Watchnight 2018 after much nudging from my mentor. Looking back, I'm glad I did. It's always good to share testimonies, because down the road they remind you of His goodness. He is always good. In 2018, I came back to … Continue reading I’m thankful.
You truly heal when you let your pain help another.
Sis Josephine Phang at Youth Impact
20th April 2019
Have you ever been in a difficult situation when you were hurt in the end?
Maybe you were just trying to help…but things didn’t work out. Or, maybe…you went through a personal time of hurting – from a horrible breakup, a betrayal from a friend or maybe someone said something hurtful to your face (or, okay worse case behind your back…)
OUCH! IT HURTS! Or rather, IT HURT-ED. I know. Believe me.
No-brainer but I think from my intro you already might have gotten the hint on what I want to talk about kan? YUPS. Today I’m gonna talk about PAIN.
Why does pain happen? Have you ever wondered how nice it would be if there was no hurt, no suffering and no PAIN in this world? I am sure you have, at one juncture or another. Why…

Hi everyone! We are no doubt living in a world where we are 'defined' by well - the things we do, the stuff we own and the things we POST. Yep. We are children of the social media age. I’m sure everyone here is on some sort of online social platform - be it Facebook, … Continue reading Your Worth. – 16.02.19 #sharing01
I have two favourite online bloggers on personal finance: Suraya of Ringgit Oh Ringgit and Aaron Tang from mr-stingy. I recently read this - 22 Things I’ve Done to Make Money in Malaysia (From Kid to Adult) at ringgitohringgit.com/make-money-in-malaysia/ and thought, hmm...guess I'd write my share of dosh-earning adventures here too! Pre-Diploma and Diploma: 1. … Continue reading Earning the dough!
This is for my grandfather, who left us too soon and too suddenly - all those years ago. This is the memoir I found the words to pen. For my grandfather. To the grandparent who loved me most, and whom I loved most too. "Happy birthday, ah kongg!" - he'd always want us beside him … Continue reading In remembrance.
Just a few days ago, I was looking through my old Blogger account and found several things I used to pen down about life, my passions and what I needed to do to keep on going. It's surprising (in a weirdly positive sort of way) because when I looked through what I wrote, I can … Continue reading 20 Things I Told Myself When I Was 20
Between my joining the uni's public speaking competition in 2016, the last time I actually stood on a platform to deliver a 'proper speech' was back when I was in Standard 5, - where I contested against participants from other primary schools. Back then, 11-year old me was a bunch of nerves and nervous; prepared … Continue reading Of Scripts and Thinking Aloud
At 17, all my church peers got baptised. I clearly remember the call for baptism that Christmas '12 - and nearly all of them filled up the form and went for it. Back then, it was done at our church's building basement. They had a blue tub filled to the brim with water. Someone was playing … Continue reading Oh the nerves! #waterbaptism
